Description from the author's site:
Almost private investigator Lola Cruz gets wrapped up in her own Christmas story when she’s summoned by a woman from her past. This short story is a fun holiday prequel to Living the Vida Lola, the first in the Lola Cruz Mystery series from St. Martin’s Minotaur Books.
"Help me, Lola. You're my only hope." The words echoing in my head were familiar, only they hadn't come from Princess Leia's hologram, imploring Obi-Wan to save her.
-first sentence, chapter 1
Loved this holiday novella! It is my intro to Lola and I am sufficiently teased. So am I gonna read book 1, Living the Vida Lola? You betcha!
The story is a prequel so there a just hints of mystery and romance about the character and her situation but told in a lively and fun way.
I liked the interaction with her close-knit family and look forward to watching Lola grow in her p.i. skills during her book series.
