    Though this is part of the Lucy series, in many ways this is Pat

    Though this is part of the Lucy series, in many ways this is Patrick’s book. The first third is his adventure in San Francisco and almost completely self-contained. Patrick has always been one of my favorite characters and it was fun to see him get his own HEA after all this time. Elle is a fun change from some of the other characters. She’s a perfect counterpart to Patrick’s seriousness. Seeing his mom play matchmaker is a fun side to the Kincaid matriarch that we haven’t always seen.

    The second third is Lucy, Kate, Dillon, and Sean stuck in a Denver hotel during a snow-storm. Of course there is a murder and it gives Kate and Lucy one last case to work together. The final third brings us back to San Diego and a hostage situation in the hospital where Colonel Kincaid is having tests. This section gives Lucy and Carina a chance to reconnect and work a case together as equals. The last two sections are somewhat Lucy-centric, but it is still her series so it fits into her story cannon.

    Brennan has honed her craft by being flexible. She writes a variety of characters in varied story lengths. Her work with short stories and novellas is on display here as each section could be read on its own. The vignettes are tightly written with little extraneous so they move quickly. Each is a fully developed case story while still bring in all the family connections that we’ve grown to love.

    I loved this opportunity to catch up with the Kincaids. Except for the murders, it was like visiting with old friends and catching up on the past few years. Most of the Kincaids remembered Lucy as a young woman just out of high school. This family reunion gives everyone a chance to forge a relationship as adults. Lucy has grown up and her family has the opportunity to understand the woman she’s become. I’m looking forward to Lucy’s adventures in San Antonio, but I will miss the Kincaid clan. I’m hopeful the story promises of visits will translate into future books so we continue to live life with these characters.

    If you've never read a Lucy Kincaid book, that's OK the story stands on it's own. But if you've read Allison Brennan's books featuring the

    Kincaid clan it's even better. The Kincaid's are all trying to get home to San Diego for Christmas but the bad guys seem to be conspiring against them. The book is in three parts each with it's own cast of characters, and mystery to be solved. For those of us that have read all of Ms Brennan's wonderful novels it was wonderful to catch up with all the Kincaids.
