This short read by Gemma Halliday shows not everyone has that Norman Rockwell perfect Christmas. With her quirky family and one very hot Dectective by her side Maddie Springer tries her best to pull Christmas out of the dumpster. This story is a fun, light hearted read perfect for a cold night in snuggling by the fire. I throughly enjoyed this quick read.

It is stated that this is a SHORT STORY from the High Heels series! The short is hilarious and shows more of characters personalities since there is no life threatening situation involved. A wonderfully spent 99 cents!!

If you love Maddie and the High Heels Series, you will love this story. Gemma Halliday is on my list of must reads; no matter the cost or the length of the book. I am a BIG fan of Maddie's and am happy for any update I can get on her, the hunky detective, and her silly family. Yes, it is a short story but a "treasure" nonetheless. Can't wait for more hijinks about this high heel-wearing sleuth.

For those who haven't started reading her books, this short story by Gemma Halliday is a great place to start. A quick, fun read, Christmas In High Heels will be enjoyable for people who already enjoy Gemma's High Heels mysteries and will whet the appetites of her new readers.

This is one of the frustrating things about the Nook. Sometimes I will purchase a book only to find out it is really just a quick write. The specific number of pages should have been included for this book. It was NOT worth $.99.

High heels mysteries is one of my favorite series. Maddie and Ramirez try to spend a quiet first Christmas together but friends and family have other plans. A great holiday short. Kim a

This is very short- 43 pages, I think. No mystery- just a short story about their preparations for a quiet Christmas at home alone and the disruptions encountered. Should be free instead of .99 in my opinion. I did enjoy reading it.

Maddie and Jack Ramirez were spending their first official Christmas Eve together. All Maddie wanted was a quiet, romantic evening with Jack. Just as they were getting started, Maddie's Mom called. Then, there was a parade of visitors at their door. By the time Maddie closes the door on their last visitor Jack is sound asleep in front of the TV. This is a short novella yet it includes all the wonderful, quirky characters we have grown to love. Gemma Halliday always leaves your waiting impatiently for the next book in this series!

People- you are expecting too much from this. it was clearly listed as a short story. therefore, it is going to be short. its not meant to be a full length novel, its just a little fun bonus in between stories in a series that contains fantastic characters and fun writing. Jack's job is always in the way of their couple time, and both he and Maddie are really looking forward to spending time together for the holiday. But everyone under the sun comes and interrupts them. It was just enough Jack to tide me over until the next in the series.
