First Line: Suddenly, my life had become a John le Carré novel.
If you like a little murder and mayhem during your holiday season, author Sue Ann Jaffarian has served up two digital Christmas short stories that fill the bill.
Both star plus-sized series character Odelia Grey, a paralegal who solves mysteries in southern California. Do you have to know anything about Odelia before you begin reading? Not at all! (But don't be surprised if you find yourself looking for the books afterwards.)
The first story, "Ho Ho Homicide" has Odelia being acccused of killing Santa at the local mall. The second, "Ho Ho Hell" brings Odelia back to the very same mall with her mother where a near riot breaks out over a parking space.
Both stories are light-hearted fun that highlight experiences we've all had while shopping for gifts. (Well... maybe not that being accused of murder part.) They're perfect for some me time after doing your own shopping. Sit down, put your feet up, sip some hot chocolate, and enjoy reading a few pages. You deserve it!
