About the Book:
Mother, wife, private investigator...vampire. Seven years ago, federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire.
Now with Christmas just around the corner, Samantha Moon finds herself taking on a very strange case. A mysterious family treasure has been stolen, something priceless that's been passed down through the generations, something buried in secrets. Samantha's reward is simple: she gets half of whatever it is...if she can find it first.
And just as the holidays threaten to consume her, Samantha is approached by a very mysterious man, someone who knows all her secrets, a man who might not be a man at all. This Christmas, Samantha Moon's world is about to be rocked...
For being a Christmas novella, this book wasn’t too short or too Christmasy. This was a quick, fun read. A great in between novel for the series.
Samantha solves a stolen property case and is also able to show her Christmas kindness. The novel takes its usual course with all characters and her working as a PI, but it all happens just before Christmas. While this is a novella, it definitely should be read as it reveals a few things that are pertinent to the next book.
I would definitely recommend this novella to readers of this series. If you like a humorous mystery story with a little vampire, you should definitely check out this fun series. Mommy gone vampire.
