Deck the Halls (Regan Reilly Mystery #5)
Deck The Halls
Three days before Christmas, Regan Reilly, the dynamic young sleuth featured in the novels of Carol Higgins Clark, accidentally meets Alvirah Meehan, Mary Higgins Clark's famous lottery winner and amateur detective, at a New Jersey dentist's office. That's where it all begins.
While Regan's mother, Nora, the famous mystery writer, is in the hospital with a broken leg, her husband, Luke, and his chauffeur, Rosita, are kidnapped and held for a million-dollar ransom. Together, Regan and Alvirah track the case as the inept yet dangerous kidnappers make their demands known. Meanwhile, Luke and Rosita are held captive on a houseboat on the Hudson River and a fierce winter storm is gathering force.
A true Christmas classic, Deck The Halls blends suspense with poignancy, laugh-out-loud humor, and all-around holiday cheer.
Well, in this book, written by Carol Higgins Clark and her mother Mary (they use to write a novel together each Christmas) Regan Reilly and Alvirah Meehan (the two famous Carol's and Mary's detectives) will have to work together to save Regan's father and his driver, Rosita, who have been kidnapped.
Carol and Mary are still at their best (yes, I must admit, Carol is my favourite author) and sign a funny novel full of humor and suspense.
A must read !
