Overview

Olivia's Christmas trip to Venice, Italy, should be a holiday dream come true. But when her unattended luggage becomes the focus of a handsome Italian policeman’s bomb investigation, she worries she won't even make it out of the Marco Polo Airport. Practically handcuffed to the best-looking man she’s ever seen, can Olivia convince him she isn’t a terrorist before he writes her off for good? Christmas in Venice is the perfect little treat to start the holidays off with a smile.

(This short story is adapted from the first chapter of Meadow Taylor’s newest full-length novel, Midnight in Venice, available now.)

Review: The story is a gift to the reader and shows the fun that can be had by reading a small story and expecting BIG THINGS for the rest of the story. —Authorsden

Here yet is another mini (quickie) that could do much better as a real novella instead. Olivia has her first trip to Italy and it is not what she dreamed of.  Before she arrives on ground good she is singled out for an act unthinkable in an airport.

This is a really good story for under 18 pages. I'd love to see a whole novel with these characters.

Very short story, but engaging!  Hey, what do you want for free? I enjoyed it enough  that I bought a book, The Billionaire's Secrets by the same writting team.

Not even a short story more like the beginning of a story- next time finish the story and submit it- very depressing
