Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In veteran novelist Graham's satisfying holiday latest, three jewelry store thieves stall out in a snowbank and have a disagreement that leaves only two of them standing. Meanwhile, the O'Boyle family is spending Christmas at their rural Massachusetts home, snowed in and bickering, until the doorbell rings. Brandishing guns, the two thieves threaten to kill Skyler, the family matriarch, who hopes that Kat, her college-aged daughter who has remained hidden upstairs, will figure something out. As the O'Boyles struggle to survive their horrific ordeal, they soon discover the strength of their family bonds in the face of despair. (Nov.)

More About the Author

New York Times and USA Today best selling author, Heather Graham was born somewhere in Europe and kidnapped by gypsies when she was a small child. She went on to join the Romanian circus as a trapeze artist and lion tamer. When the circus came to South Florida, she stayed, discovering that she preferred to be a shark and gator trainer.

Not really.

Heather is the child of Scottish and Irish immigrants who met and married in Chicago, and moved to South Florida, where she has spent her life. (She has, at least, been to the Russian circus in Moscow, where she wished she was one of the incredibly talented and coordinated trapeze artists.) She majored in theater arts at the University of South Florida. After a stint of several years in dinner theater, back-up vocals, and bartending, she stayed home after the birth of her third child and began to write. Her first book was with Dell, and since then, she has written over one hundred and fifty novels and novellas including category, suspense, historical romance, vampire fiction, time travel, occult, horror, and Christmas family fare.

She is pleased to have been published in approximately twenty-five languages, and has had over seventy-five million books in print. She has been honored with awards from Walden Books, B. Dalton, Georgia Romance Writers, Affaire de Coeur, Romantic Times, the Lifetime Achievement Award from RWA and more. Heather has also become the proud recipient of the Silver Bullet from Thriller Writers. Heather has had books selected for the Doubleday Book Club and the Literary Guild, and has been quoted, interviewed, or featured in such publications as The Nation, Redbook, Mystery Book Club, People and USA Today and appeared on many newscasts including Today, Entertainment Tonight and local television.

Heather loves travel and anything that has to do with the water, and is a certified scuba diver. She also loves ballroom dancing. Each year she hosts the Vampire Ball and Dinner theater at the RT convention raising money for the Pediatric Aids Society and in 2006 she hosted the first Writers for New Orleans Workshop to benefit the stricken Gulf region. She is also the founder of "The Slush Pile Players", presenting something that's almost like entertainment for various conferences and benefits. Married since high school graduation and the mother of five, her greatest love in life remains her family, but she also believes her career has been an incredible gift, and she is grateful every day to be doing something that she loves so very much for a living.

The Last Noel was chosen for my book club's pick for a certain month. It was my first Heather Graham novel, so I was interested to see how it would be. I was pleasantly surprised, I enjoyed it very much.

The Last Noel was a page-turner from page #1. Each page was suspense could almost cut the tension with a knife as the hostage scenario played out. And through to the end, the story was well-written and thought out.

I think I'll check out more of her books in the future, as this one gets a thumbs up from me!

The O'Boyle family wants to spend one more Christmas together at their house in the mountains. The children are all growing up and before long will want to spend the holidays elsewhere. While Skyler is trying to make it a holiday to remember for her husband and children, danger is about to find them.

Not too far away, a robbery gone awry leaves the store owner dead and the felons escaping through the mountains, until their car crashes in a snow drift, stranding them within sight of the O'Boyle home. With a nor'easter blowing in, the felons seek refuge at the O'Boyle home, and thus usher the holidays in with terror.

Guns trained on her family, Skyler hopes and prays her family will find their way out of this living nightmare. Their only hope, daughter Kat has managed to escape and seeking help. But with the storm growing worse, will she be able to get to help in time? Or will this be The Last Noel for the O'Boyle family?

The Last Noel delves deeply into the bonds of family. Here we have a family that has grown distant from each other and has lost the true meaning of Christmas. No one except Skyler really wants to be there and some family members can barely get along. When their holiday getaway is invaded by criminals with a knack for terrorizing, the O'Boyle family learns the only way they'll make it out alive is if they remember what being a family really means and work together to erase the nightmare.

Surprisingly, the villains in the story add significantly to the story. Granted, one of them drove me out of my mind he was so darned annoying, but I actually found myself feeling sorry for, and liking one of them, Scooter, by the end of the story.

This was just an okay book for me. It was short and didn't leave a great deal of room for expanding the story. This felt like more of a novella then an actual novel. There was suspense in the story but it wasn't too intense and the romance was hardly there at all. The story setting really didn't leave much time for romance anyway. Kat is portrayed as completed devastated when Craig left her in the past but I didn't really feel the depths of her pain. Again, I think it was because the book was so short. The plot really keeps this book from being longer and more in depth. Pick this one up from the library as I did.

Heather Graham is obviously a master of suspense as indicative by this book. I loved it! The tension began right at the beginning and continued to build until the very end.

The characterization was just as masterful. The story is centered around a very typical family dynamic. Dad is too harsh. Mom just wants her family together. The kids can hardly stand one another or stand being around their family. I think anyone could relate to these characters.

I was drawn in by the suspense and by the way this family pulled together when in danger. This book is truly worth reading. I highly recommend this holiday thriller. It was great.

Format: Hardcover
The Last Noel by Heather Graham is about a dysfunctional family that is taken prisoner in their vacation home on Christmas Eve by a band of jewel thieves with guns. The thieves have just killed a man and are looking for a safe place to wait out a New England snowstorm. The book is kind of schmaltzy-- the family decides to continue having their Christmas Celebration as if there were no men with guns holding them prisoner. One of the bad guys is a Joe Pesci-like character who is excited about taking part in a family Christmas. Even the lead bad guy wants to have a turkey Christmas dinner. The third guy has a history with a member of the family, a young woman, Kat, with whom he had a very serious love affair before he broke it off without warning.

Kat is an extremely annoying and stupid young woman. At first the bad guys don't know she's in the house because she is able to hide when they break in. However, while the family engages in singing Christmas carols around the piano (they're not going to let men with guns spoil their Christmas, remember?) she sits up on the second floor landing and listens with tears running down her face. When her former boyfriend is brought into the house, injured with a concussion, she sneaks down the stairs to talk to him when everybody is out of the room. She moons around over his adopting a life of crime and sulks about it. She could have left when the family was singing Christmas carols as that would have covered up the noise but she was too busy crying on the landing. There were several other opportunities for her to leave, but she didn't avail herself of them-- the excuse being that it would be too dangerous for her to go out in the blizzard, and there was nowhere nearby she could go for help. Wuss!
