“Forever Festive” Got It’s 1st Review… A 5 Star One

Sorry, no Sound Sample this weekend. Very busy week averting a strike at work, assembling a new bed, and having family over this weekend. But I thought I’d share this bit of news…

5.0 out of 5 stars First Rate Christmas Mystery with Intriguing Characters

Reviewed in the United States on December 20, 2021Verified Purchase

I enjoy reading Christmas mysteries, and while Forever Festive would have been a good read any time it was perfect for reading Christmas week. Rafael, who is a classic sort of 1940’s detective except for an unusual twist, and Clara his British sweetheart have series of challenges to overcome before they can settle down to enjoy the holiday with Rafael’s family. Can they find and save they imperiled young woman? What secrets are hidden under the surface of the town Rafael grew up in? And is there truly magic in Christmas Eve? The great thing is the prose is pure pleasure as you wind your way through this intriguing plot.

Sound Sample Saturday – Chapter 7 Forever’s Too Long

But Rafael had no idea how wrong things were done behind the facade of the visiting room. Or what a familiar beauty he would find there.

Soon he finds himself coming face to face with a historic figure who was supposedly strangled, shot and finally drowned back in 1916. Is it really the same man? And if so, how can he still be walking the Earth? And is he involved both the cult and the art smugglers?
