166) Eleven Snipers Sniping by H.P. Mallory

The Blurb :

All Detective Knightley Vander wants for Christmas is to spend some time alone with fellow law enforcement agent Dulcie O’Neil, a feisty spitfire and the love of his life. But his Christmas wish is interrupted when a sniper serial killer comes to his town of Splendor, California.

Bodies are dropping left and right, and mysterious clues left at each scene lead Knight to suspect every Netherworld creature in town. Things get personal when Dulcie disappears, leaving Knight increasingly desperate to solve the case. Will he and his team be able to unwrap the killer’s identity before it’s too late or will this turn out to be Knight's worst Christmas ever?

My Thoughts :

I haven't finished the Dulcie O'Neil series yet but when I saw this Twelve Days of Christmas novella I couldn't resist getting a copy.  Told from Knightly Vander's perspective this is a short story set in the world fans know and love from the series.  A little Christmas special that takes place after the series finished but it doesn't ruin anything for anyone wanting to spend some of the holidays with their favourite characters.

This was a nice short read with an interesting plot.  I missed some of the more paranormal elements of this series but the mystery and Christmas subject matter made up for the lack of things that go bump in the night.   I enjoyed this short story and also thought it was nice to have the story told from another point of view.  Hopefully there will be more Dulcie short stories in the future.

The Twelve Days of Christmas novellas are definitely worth checking out.  I only read two by authors I already knew and also read another by a writer I hadn't heard of before.  A great way to find some new reading material and also a super way to celebrate your Christmas.  Oh and if you need to meet any reading goals these novellas will help you boost your numbers!

Missed them this Christmas?  Hopefully they will be around next year or keep them on your Kindle for another time.  I would love to see this kind of project happen again in 2014.
