It'll take a tall, hot Texan and a little holiday spirit to mend a broken heart and catch a Christmas killer . . .?

Savanna Edwards is feeling downright Scrooge-like. Who can blame her? A truly unjolly Santa--suit, beard and all--just repossessed her car because of her ex's shady business dealings. She'd like to murder the no-good lying cheat, but somebody already did that for her--and left him right in the middle of her kitchen, wrapped up with a bow.??

Detective Mark Donaldson has a rule against getting involved with his neighbors. He can look--and he's studied every sweet curve of Savanna from across the street--but he can't touch. So when she lands on his doorstep in need of help, he finds himself torn between being naughty or nice, and fights every urge to unwrap her like a shiny new Christmas present. ??

Trouble is, even Mark can't resist a little holiday magic . . . and there's definitely something magical happening between him and the girl next door.

I wished I would have known to read Gotcha first because even though I enjoyed this book and recommend it as a very good read with lots of romance, humor and a mystery, I felt a little lost at times, like something was missing. Than I discovered Gotcha, the book before this book. Maybe it's because I read a lot of series and it just felt like the secondary characters in this book had their own story before. So I will be reading Gotcha which I already purchased and than finish this one because it is a good book. JudyE

What a fun book. Christie Craig has done it again: lots of laughs, lots of romance, lots of suspense. It was nice to catch up with Mark Donaldson from "Gotcha." Just what I needed to put me in the holiday spirit.

It was a great and funny book, but the ending totally sucked. Definitely could have made it better, but good book overall just found it a bit short. I liked when jake and macy were mentioned in the book from her first book Gotcha liked past characters coming up in other books.

I liked it but way too short. I feel Mark got ripped off. I love her books but was disappointed in this one because it started out awesome then just ended. Not what I expected. Maybe we can hear about Bethany and Tom and then we can get more???

I first discovered Christie Craig by her YA novels (which are a must read even for adults!) and when I found out she wrote adult romances I knew I had to read them. I was NOT disappointed. The only thing that discouraged me was that The Cop Who Stole Christmas wasn't even 200 pages BUT the story was great, and you'll never be able to guess who killed her ex-husband. The book starts out by Savannah's car being towed. It was one of the only things she got out of her divorce. Savannah, desperate and looking like a "smurf", ran over to her neighbor's house who is a cop, Mark, but he tells her to get lost. And to only come back if she finds a "body" because that's his kind of job. Then she finds her ex husband's body in her kitchen and runs to his door. Mark agrees to help her even though he should stay out of it but what they don't realize right away is that their lives will never be the same since their first encounter. But neither one of them believed they were ready for a serious relationship. Will they find out who murdered Savannah's ex? Will they find a way to put their past in the past and find a future together? Well, find out in The Cop Who Stole Christmas! The Cop Who Stole Christmas will NOT disappoint. It's funny, cute, romantic, suspenseful, and will immediately steal  your heart. Mark is a man who you will wish was real and you could keep all for yourself. And even though Savannah finds strength when she's with him, she also finds it on her own. She is a strong woman. Definitely someone I love to root for!

I always enjoy Craig's books. They're not high literature, but they are fun and funny. This one was a bit violent for all the cheerfulness, but otherwise, I truly enjoyed it.

I usually recommend Christie Craig to everyone but, this book fell a little flat. I feel like i was reading her book (Only in Texas) which i loved, and highly recommend! If you have read Only in Texas I would stay away from this book. They both have the cop that falls for the accused victim, the cops conflict with trusting due to their ex, the women having flash backs, and basically the same throw up scene. Which you would understand if you read Only in Texas. This book had a few things different but not much. It was shorter, again not a great thing. I liked the killer concept, just wish the story had a little more and set it apart from her others. So intern i would read all her other books but, maybe leave this one be.

Just when you think you've heard it all... The characters in The Cop Who Stole Christmas get themselves in so many prediciments without even trying. And Christie has you laughing the whole time she is working them out of the problems they get themselves into. One page and you will be permanently hooked on Christie!

This was the first book of Christie Craig's that I've ever read and I LOVED it! The chemistry between Savanna and Mark is believable and not overdone in the least. I also loved the scenes where Savanna hangs out with her friends. Her friends are caring, but also sassy and blunt about the advice they give her. This is such an excellent book. It isn't too focused on the holidays, so I wouldn't really call it a holiday romance, but who cares? The book is awesome and highly recommend it. The Cop Who Stole Christmas was an excellent read.

Savanna Edwards was having a bad day. Her car was repo’d by Santa and she finally met her sexy cop neighbor while sporting a blue facial mud mask and mayonnaise hair. But that was nothing compared to coming home to find her ex in her kitchen – dead – with a red ribbon tied around his Mister Willie. Hunky homicide cop Mark Donaldson has had his eye on neighbor Savanna for a while but he has a rule about getting his meat where he gets his bread. He’s reconsidering that when Savanna rouses him one evening declaring “I need you.” Savanna’s ex isn’t the only gift-wrapped body this Christmas. And Mark needs to solve the mystery quick before another body shows up under the tree. THE COP WHO STOLE CHRISTMAS is Christie Craig’s second story in the Tall, Hot & Texan series. Craig does another knock out job balancing mystery, humor an enough steam to cook a bushel of beans in this short novel. Give yourself a gift with THE COP WHO STOLE CHRISTMAS today.
