I adore holiday short stories. I love little snack bite reads that introduce you to characters and all that is going on in their world. And when the writer – or in this case writers – deliver the goods without giving away previous mystery jaunts they are diamonds in the rough. With Baby It’s Cold Outside Halliday and VerSteeg sparkle brilliantly without divulging previous capers.
Time spent with the folks at Royal Palace Casino and Resort is well worthwhile, with writing that is captivating, contemporary, and witty.
Baby It’s Cold Outside is a delight to read, rich with snappy dialogue and bursting with entertaining characters. Tessie is effervescent, fetching and rib-tickling. Britton is hysterical, nurturing and an enchanting bombshell dujour. Tate is magnetic, uproarious and zesty. Alfie is a richly developed player in this feisty, zany series.
The only drawback was the way too quick whodunit reveal. Halliday and VerSteeg dropped the ball by telling who the culprit was rather then showing us with an extra chapter or two. The additional pages would wrap up this adventure firmly and still keep this Tahoe Tessie volume short. Baby It’s Cold Outside is clever, intriguing and a wickedly exciting page-turner.
Newcomers will be intrigued by VerSteeg and Halliday's witty humor and smart storytelling to check out the rest of the series.

a very quick read as I read it in about an hour. The FBI agent Devin Ryder and also friend Rafe are mentioned and play a small part in the story. an entertaining read and I can't wait to read the next book to see what happens with Tess and love interest.
I just finished reading Baby It’s Cold Outside: A Tahoe Tessie Mystery.
This was a short, fun read, that I found myself wishing was longer because I wasn’t ready to let go of the characters. I love how Tessie is a regular, down to Earth woman in the busy casino world. She’s smart, sassy, and a bit rebellious, which I LOVE!
I can’t wait for the next installment in the Tahoe Tessie Series.
If you’re looking for a short, sassy read, this is definitely the one for you!
