HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS by C.C.Warrens, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise

This is a novella in the Seeking Justice series about Detective Richard Marx and Holly Cross.

A relatively new voice in the suspense genre, C.C. Warrens writing grabbed me from the first paragraph and has not let go! She deals with some tough subjects about the streets of New York but also shows the topics of faith and forgiveness and spiritual growth. 

This novella will not make sense unless you have read the Holly Cross books or the Seeking Justice books.

All the characters you love are back and you get to meet Marx’s mom and Dad! Marx is hoping to show Holly a real family Christmas but will it even be civil when he and his dad don’t get along? Who knows what mischief Holly will get into and will she be able to charm Marx’s parents? Trouble seems to meet them in the form of neighborhood punks when they arrive at Marx’s boyhood home. Can they figure out who is behind the vandalism? Will old wounds be healed and old mysteries come to light? Will this truly be a family Christmas?

I especially liked the interaction between Holly and Gus Marx. And the ending back in New York was just a pretty bow on a gorgeous package! I am looking forward to reading more stories about Holly and her friends.

*I was given a ecopy of this book for review by the author. I was under no obligation to post a favorable review. All opinions are my own.*

BackCover Blurb:
Beneath the twinkling lights and neatly wrapped packages, lay bitter memories and carefully-kept secrets . . .
Three decades have passed since Marx last set foot in his family's Georgia home. The house has faded over the years, but the haunting memories contained within its walls remain crisp and unforgettable.
If not for the girl asleep in the passenger's seat of his car, Marx would turn his car around and head back to his life in New York City. But it's time to face his demons.

This novella is a Seeking Justice Christmas novella that falls between
"Injustice for All" and "Imperfect Justice."
