About the Author
Debby Giusti is a medical technologist who loves working with test tubes and petri dishes almost as much as she loves to write. Growing up as an Army Brat, Debby met and married her husband--then a Captain in the Army--at Fort Knox, Kentucky. Together they traveled the world, raised three wonderful Army Brats of their own and have now settled in Atlanta, Georgia, where Debby spins tales of suspense that touch the heart and soul. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In this short novelette, we meet a woman who witnesses (or at least hears since she's on the phone with him) her ex-boyfriend and father of her daughter get murdered. She's terrified because now the killer knows who she is and is coming after her. So she and her daughter flee to a place she remembered from childhood and an aunt she barely remembered. There's a police chief there by the name of Caleb Jackson. He soon suspects she's on the run and decides to find out why.
It was just a great story. Love the suspense and the romance. It worked for 100 pages...FIVE STARS!
First of all, the title was cheesy, I'll just say that :-) This one is about a woman who works as a lab technician and a man who's a cop. Both are estranged from their brothers, but the other knows the brother...The entire book takes place in about eight hours or so. Though the suspense was good, the romance was almost non-existent. I did like the flirting that went on, but felt it was a bit displaced...
Both stories had strong, interesting plots. I enjoyed the second story by Debby Giusti a little more, probably because it took place over a day instead of over several weeks, therefore making it ring more true. It’s hard to pass very much time through the length constraints of a novella. While both stories were suspenseful, I especially appreciated the masterful use of suspense and tension that compelled me to keep turning pages in “Yule Die.”
The romances in both stories seemed to happen quickly, but again, that’s expected of novellas. I can’t remember the last time I read a collection of novellas, so reading this book was a nice change of pace.
The second novella is called Yule Die, and it's by Debby Giusti. This novella is about Callie, a lab tech who gets sent to run tests on the survivor of a shootout on Christmas Eve, a guy who's being hidden in a nursing home to keep him safe. She walks in the room and realizes the man is her estranged brother. Joe, a cop, comes in to explain about security measures just before several masked men break into the nursing home taking Joe, Callie, and her unconscious brother captive. This novella speaks of protection: Joe's desire to protect Callie, and Callie's need to protect her brother as they seek a way to get out of the situation alive.
Both novellas are well-written. If you enjoy a little suspense with your romance with a bit of Christmas cheer (or fear) mixed in, check out this two-for-one book!
