The plot of this story just grabbed me right from the start. Kira was responsible for sending the wrong man to prison for murder. Now she must deal with the reality that Gabriel is out and definitely not guilty.
Deadly Noel had so much great tension running through it. I was very frustrated with certain people in town who refused to believe that Gabriel was innocent, even though there was plenty of proof. I thought that Kira and Gabriel handled themselves so well in many difficult situations and I loved the romantic attraction that began to develop between them.
The author did a great job of creating a few possible murderers lurking in the small town. It made Kira and Gabriel’s task of finding the true killer a challenging one. This story had a great romance, lots of danger, a sweet father/daughter connection, and the feeling that if these two main characters didn’t work out the mystery, then no one would.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
