Christmas in July! To Catch a Grinch

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s that time of year again over here at Annie Acorn Publishing LLC! Time for Christmas in July! When oppressive summer heat fills the air, cool off with great reads, thoughts of winter wonderlands, and heart-warming holiday tales.

Today’s feature, To Catch a Grinch (Holly & Ivy Mysteries Book 1), by From Women’s Pens author and award-winning graphic designer Angel Nichols is the first entry in her Holly & Ivy mystery series.

When most people contemplate Christmas, they think of family time, baking gingerbread with Grandma, and stringing those forever-tangled lights on the tree. For Lieutenant Patrick Holling, Christmas means something entirely different, though.

So begins this holiday mystery from internationally beloved author Angel Nichols, noted for her strong characters, biting humor, and intricate plots lines.

Demoted and transferred to New Jersey PD’s own version of Timbuktu – the Holiday Crimes Unit, where every crime that correlates to a holiday is sent to die, Holling finds himself saddled with an unwanted partner, Detective Julian Ives, who has transferred to the HCU under mysterious circumstances.

Now a robbery has turned into a homicide, and the two must find a way to work together to catch a killer. That is, unless they kill each other first.

Bet you can’t solve this one before they do!

Happy Christmas in July Reading!
