ABOUT THIS SHORT STORY


Deputy Chief of Police Rob McKell doesn’t trust Christmas. Two of his ex-wives left him at Christmas. Besides, bad guys don’t take time off during the holidays so why should he? But when the chief orders skeleton crews at the detachment for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, he has no choice but to comply. Not that he minds, really. He has a Christmas Eve date with the lovely Jillian, a gemologist with an independent streak, for the all-important meeting of her friends.

Jillian isn’t like any woman he’s ever met, and soon he’s revising his opinion of Christmas—and of long-term relationships. But before the evening ends, Jillian’s dangerous past will put both their lives and their fragile new relationship at risk… and prove that McKell’s misgivings about Christmas are well-founded.

A short Mendenhall Mystery featuring Chief Kate Williams and Deputy Chief Rob McKell by the author of The Shoeless Kid, The Tuxedoed Man, The Weeping Woman and The Untethered Woman.
