Our two main characters Amber and Derrick have sort of a passing knowledge of one another since Derrick rents from Amber but working out on the oil rigs he’s hardly ever around for her to have gotten to know him. It just so happens that their first real encounter comes after a murder had taken place on the rig with Derrick being a possible suspect. Amber is just starting out her career with the coast guard when she’s sent out to Derrick’s rig.
Even with the short length the author packed in a budding romance, a murder mystery to solve along with setting up the story so the reader gets a great feel for the characters and setting. Such great depth given to this one that I never really felt that longing that things were missing as usually happens with most novellas. I even felt as if the side characters such as Amber’s grandmother, a favorite of mine, popped right off the pages.
In the end I’d rate this one at 4.5 stars and definitely recommend this to anyone that wants a quick little mystery with a touch of clean romance involved.
I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
"A Texas Christmas Mystery" was the first book I read by Anne Greene and it will definitely not be the last one.
This is a terrific, fast paced mystery and romance. I guess it has to be fast paced since it is only about 80 pages long but there is nothing missing in those pages. We get to know the characters amazingly well and I really cared about them. The mystery is very interesting and spiced up with a few red herrings.
I loved the setting on the oil rig and the sabotage acts that happened after the murder. It made the suspense growing even more.
Even though it has a Christmas theme it isn't overpowering and will be a great read any time of the year.
I requested this book from NetGalley and am thankful that Backlit PR and the author provided me with a copy.
I won a copy at a Facebook party and I'm glad I did. The honest review and opinions are own and were not required.
Author Anne Greene's writes with flair and exhibits mastery of what can be a difficult format. The creole world building adds interest. If you're up for a light holiday read, this story would fill the bill nicely.
