Someone is trying to destroy Christmas for the Connor Clan, so the modern day warriors drop their party plans and set out to hunt down the traitor, but none of them were expecting it to be Santa Claus. 

It’s almost Christmas, and the Connor Clan is feeling far from merry. They’re still grieving for Angus and trying to find the missing hybrid, Cam. And now a traitor is planning to destroy the warriors on Christmas Eve. Unless Sorcha can quickly clear her name, she’s about to be condemned. In the midst of this chaos, Matilda claims she’s seen a ghost and been attacked by Santa Claus. No one believes her until she shows them the picture of her ghost. The final shock comes as the wayward Santa is revealed. 

~ My Review ~ 5 Stars
The author adds mystery, ghosts, humor, love, forgiveness and hope all in one novella that just gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. 

I love Christmas stories and this book is without exception one of my favorites because it answers so many "what abouts" from previous books to the series. You know those things you wonder about when you are reading a good series. Yes I know we don't have to know everything about everything but seriously I always want to know why and what if.

If you haven't read previous books to this series you can still read this as a stand alone. The author gives a great character list in the beginning of the book for referencing.

Finally feisty Sorcha and brooding Duncan get to tell their story and it is an ah ha moment. But I won't give it away. Read the book you will be glad you did.

I give it 5 stars and recommend it for everyone.

~ About The Author ~ Anita Clenney

My name is Anita Clenney and I write Mysteries and Paranormal Romantic Suspense. I’ve worked in a pickle factory (picture Lucy and Ethel, hair nets and all--lasted half a day), a preschool, booked shows for Aztec Fire Dancers, been a Secretary, Executive Assistant, and a Realtor, and through it all, I’ve been in love. Sometimes it was wonderful, sometimes it hurt so bad I could hardly breathe. Then I found Mr. Right, and the two of us multiplied into a family of four. We live in Virginia, not far from Washington, DC, where we are slaves to a white Boxer named Lily, who thinks we live and breathe to buy new stuff for her to chew up. My husband is a Network Architect, and it’s a good thing because technology doesn’t like me. My son plans to be a famous hockey or football player, and my daughter will probably figure out a way to rule the world.

With scenes rolling nonstop in my head and my feet rarely on the ground, I should have realized that I was born to write much earlier in life, but alas, no. Not until I was on the wrong side of 40 did I hear the keyboard calling me. But then I tend to do things backwards.

When I decided to wrestle the stories in my imagination and dreams onto the page, my husband and kids encouraged me all the way. Even when I was in the middle of a heated battle with warriors and demons and forgot that people in the real world had to eat dinner and that dishes didn’t wash themselves, still my family supported me. Finally it paid off. After three years, eleven months and twenty-two days, I got THE CALL from my wonderful agent Christine Witthohn of Book Cents Literary Agency, who is really Wonder Woman in disguise. A publisher wanted to buy my story. MY STORY!!! Not just one, but three of them. A new journey begins and I hope you’ll join me for the ride.

Some of my favorite things:

God -- Family (greatest family in the world) -- Diamonds (ooh la la, do I love diamonds)  --  Blue Jeans  --  Interior Decorating (I admit I have a fetish for beautiful mirrors)  --  Trees and Summer breezes (there’s nothing better than the wind whispering in the leaves on a warm, summer day, especially if you're curled up with a book) --  Reading --  Shopping for bargains (I buy so many they’re no longer a bargain. Can you say one in every color please?)  --  Junk food (trying to control that but not having much luck) --  The TV show LOST  --  Loreena McKennitt’s music  --  Mysteries and Romance… of course  --  And my fabulous editing partner, writer Dana Rodgers, another of my favorite things. I don’t know what I’d do without her.
