**Babies! Christmas! Romance! Don't miss the 8th story in the SCVC Taskforce Romantic Suspense series, featuring Cooper and Celina and their new baby girl!!

Cooper Harris is determined to get his fiancée, Celina Davenport, to say "I do" before the New Year. While she's focused on creating a magical Christmas for their seven-month-old daughter, Via, all Cooper is asking from Santa is to finally be able to call Celina his wife.

Celina wants nothing more than to become Mrs. Cooper Harris, except ties to her past keep her from making the leap. Hoping to lift her Christmas spirits, with the rest of the SCVC Taskforce lending a hand, she convinces Cooper to play Santa at a holiday fundraiser for the Aslan Children's Hospital.

The party takes a deadly turn when a cartel leader wanted by the US government crashes the guest list with his terminally ill daughter, taking everyone hostage. With the lives of so many on the line - including his own family - Cooper will have to pull a Christmas miracle from Santa's toy sack to help the sick girl, while bringing an end to her father's reign of terror.

Good story and the whole gang was there. I am confused as why Ms. Evans has all of a sudden started dropping more f bombs in her books. Not needed to add to the story.

A quick read that is packed with action and suspense and gives a great glimpse into what’s been happening with not only Cooper and Celina, but many other characters from the SCVC Taskforce series. Like all the books in this series I have read (and most everything I have read from Evans), the balance between romance and suspense works so well together. I love the fact that these characters are truly partners and recognize that each other is capable and competent at doing their job. Even though they acknowledge that their first instinct is to protect one another and they may want to push the other to the back to keep them safe, they ultimately let each other do what they must and keep the drama and angst over it to a minimum – something I truly appreciate! And I totally loved the ending – Cooper’s surprise was wonderful and I loved how it all played out. My only real issue with this one is the length. I did enjoy this novella, but I have not read Cooper and Celina’s story yet (Deadly Pursuit), so I think for me I could have used just a bit more world building for them. We are dropped right into this story and things start happening, which, don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved, but I think I would have enjoyed knowing a little more about what happened in their past to know how they got where they were and some more of the why’s behind things. All in all, not one of my favorites in this series – mostly because of the length, but definitely worth a look-see if you want to get wrapped up in an action filled story that ends on a wonderfully sweet note…and will probably have you looking at more in this series and from these authors!

This one is for the fans. Get together with the cast of the SCVC Taskforce Series and watch them save Christmas. We get a peek at the couples outside of work and see how they are coming along. This is a sweet fun read.

This is a nice quick holiday read. I loved catching up with my favorite characters from the SCVC Taskforce series. I always enjoy these novellas to see how everyone is enjoying their HEA. Even during a holiday party it's not smooth sailing for this bunch. With their line of work anything can happen. This book gives the suspense that I expect when reading book in this series, but it also has heartfelt and fun moments. The ending is just perfect and great way to celebrate the holiday season for this group.

Deadly Holiday by Misty Evans and Amy Manemann is a holiday novella in the Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce series. It is definitely a short read! We were treated to seeing many of the characters from past books. I had a difficult time getting into it but then the suspense picked up. This was my least favorite book in the series. I’d like to disclose that I receive an advanced copy of the book and this is my true and honest opinion.

OUTSTANDING! Cooper has a great surprise lined up for Celina after the Christmas party at the Children's Hospital. He is excited about his plan, but he is not so thrilled about having to dress up as Santa, especially with the delectable sight of his lady dressed as an elf filling his imagination and pulling at his focus. If only that complaint was the worst thing to happen at the party! A super bad guy shows up with no clue that many of the volunteers are as bad as he is but is a much better way. Not only are many members of Coopers team there, two of the babies and all of the spouses/girlfriends are helping out. The partners are just as deadly as the team members and they all have loved ones and children to protect. Watch out Mr. Cartel Hot Shot! You and your deadly squad chose the wrong holiday party to attend. It is a novella, but it is a complete, action packed read! I reviewed based on an ARC provided by the author.

LOVED this book!!! This is a tightly woven tale that has Cooper and Celina helping out at a Christmas party for ill children (along with the rest of their SCVC taskforce). Suddenly, instead of handing out presents to children, they're fighting for their lives. This novella moves quickly and is filled with plenty of story and tugs on emotional heartstrings. While this is a novella, it feels like a full length novel, as none of the story feels abbreviated or shortened. Fans of the genre will want to put this at the top of their TBR list. The author is on my must read authors' list.

Another great addition to this series! There is suspense and terror as well as family and love all in a holiday setting. The characters have unique connections and strong bonds as obstacles are overcome. Awesome read! I voluntarily read and reviewed this book; all opinions expressed are my own.
