About the Book:

It's been eight long years since Michael Gallagher has laid eyes on Shay Angel, back when he was a boy from the most prominent family in town and she was a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. But he hadn't cared about their differences - until one bad decision landed her in jail.

That was years ago and now he's back in Harmony Harbor for the holidays. So when Shay goes missing, Michael is intent on finding her and finding out if their sizzling attraction is still there. But he's now a district attorney, and it looks like Shay is once again on the wrong side of the law.

My Review:

First of all, please don't confuse this review with CHRISTMAS WITH ANGEL by Lexi Post that appeared here on my blog a few days ago.  This is an entirely different book.

CHRISTMAS WITH AN ANGEL by Debbie Mason was a very short story and not all that Christmasy.  The cover is beautiful and the title had me thinking this was going to be an entirely different type of book.  Not exactly what I had been looking for and as I read I felt like I was missing something.  Nowhere did I see that there was a previous book in this series.  Perhaps if I had more of the back story from reading other books in this series, I may have enjoyed it more.

There was action and suspense, but the romance was flat and the characters were not well developed...  but again, they may have been better developed in previous books in this series.  Reading this as a stand-alone just didn't really work out for me.

Debbie Mason is an excellent writer and just because this one didn't quite hit the mark for me, the only explanation I have is that I should have read other books in this series first.  I also should not have put so much emphasis on angels and Christmas.  That just wasn't what this was all about.

Disclosure:  A complimentary copy was provided by NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.

My Rating:
