This book has a family fighting and celebrating Christmas at their vacation home. It includes three thieves - at least you are lead to believe all three are thieves. Once the thieves arrive at the vacation home, Christmas is still celebrated but under gunpoint. It is a book about learning to appreciate your family!
I recently read the Flynn trilogy by Heather Graham and after reading this book, she is now on my favorite author list!
I couldn't put it down until I finished! Intense.
This is a great book, could not put it down. Read it within 2 days. A family is held hostage in their house on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day. The theives won't leave witnesses around. Will the family survive?
A home invasion on Christmas eve teaches the O'Boyle family just how important they are to each other. Not at all a "sweetness and light" novel but rather a gripping story filled with terror, a blizzard, cunning and quite evil villains, and exciting hour-by-hour tense drama. As the hours tick by, rescue seems remote and the family pulls together to save their collective lives. A satisfying audio book; well read. Recommended.
I really enjoyed listening to this book on CD. Although it was a crime story, it was fun following the Mom, who was insistant that her family was going to have a tradiitonal Christmas, with turkey, presents and Christmas Carols, dispite a home invasion and thugs joining them for Christmas dinner!
GREAT READ,READ THE SAME DAY I GOT IT,YOU JUST HAVE TO KEEP READING AFTER YOU START TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
Love this holiday mystery
Heather Graham does it again! This author is always able to allow us insight into her characters and allows the reader to see them clearly in their head as the read. She shows us that there is nobody who is completely good or evil in this world. In this book she explores the absolute terror of what it would be like to lose your family at Christmas. She shows us how both the good characters and the bad guys have needs that they may not easily show to the world.
All in all a great read, especially for this time of the year!
Good book but rather predictable.
