Review: A Helluva Holiday by Jerrie Alexander

Posted on January 7, 2017 by Nadene @ Totally Addicted to Reading in COYER Reading Challenge, Reviews / 0 Comments



A HELLUVA HOLIDAY by Jerrie Alexander is a short holiday read, featuring the members of Lost and Found Inc. In this installment, the members come together during the Christmas season to assist Clay Hudson, a lifelong friend of Nate Wolfe. Clay sought Nate’s help because the woman he loved and her sister had unwittingly engaged in a business deal with the notorious drug lord Carlos Vega. 
For a short read, character development was good. I was able to establish a connection with Clay and Carol. It was fun watching their interaction. I was glad to see them coming to terms with their feelings and accepting that they truly belong together. 
This installment packed a punch for such a short story. It was no less than what I had come to expect from the author. There was action, mystery, and romance. It was a page turner that kept me on the edge of my seat, that was until I got blindsided by the manner in which the story was wrapped up. 
The ending was disappointing, to say the least. After such a buildup I was expecting a lot more. Instead, I was left hanging. There were issues surrounding the investigation that had not been resolved, which left me with more questions than answers. 
The story had the potential to be a five-star read, but due to the issues mentioned it fell short. Overall, it was not a bad read, the plot just needed some tightening up. It leaves one to assume that the author was in a rush to meet a deadline and not much attention was given to the ending. 
If you are looking fun and short read and don’t mind the issues mentioned, then you will enjoy A HELLUVA HOLIDAY.

About Jerrie Alexander

My love of reading all genres and making up stories for my kids inspired me to return to school to study creative writing. When my career in logistics took off and my children grew active in horses and sports, my family always took precedence. Oddly enough, I still have every paper I’d written for class. In fact, they moved with us from state to state until after we’d returned to Texas for good. My husband, who always believed in me, suggested I retire early and write my books. I have eleven romantic suspense books and four contemporary erotic romance books published. I’m currently working on a new romantic suspense. I write alpha males and kick-ass women. My characters weave their way through the problems love and life presents and on occasion, in spite of themselves, they fall in love with each other. If they’re tough enough, they live happily ever-after. My books are complete standalone stories with a happy ending. I stopped writing for a couple of years my real-life John Wayne husband unexpectedly lost his life. Thanks to the support of family, friends, and my dear readers, I’m back and looking forward to writing more stories. I love hearing from my readers. You are, after all, why I write.
