Dr. Lucas Bennett needs to take Paublo to the states for a heart transplant. Paublo is number two on the transplant list and without the operation, Paublo will surely die. Dr. Lucas asks Anna Freeman to go with him, since he needs a top orphanage official to sign for Paublo’s operation.

Anna used to be an FBI agent, but when she was shot at she fled to Brazil. The guy she was after was imprisoned for embezzlement, but not for murder or the other crimes he’s committed. Now he’s being released from prison—at the same time Anna is in the states to sign for Paublo’s operation.

It doesn’t take the bad guys long to realize Anna is back in town. And Anna is quick to ditch her orphanage duties and jump back in with the FBI, desperate to put her man back behind bars and keep him there. Will she succeed this time. Or will Anna be next in a long line of murders?

HOLIDAY ILLUSION is a heart-breaking story of a young child dying and the two adults who love it. Set during the Christmas season, Paublo has a desire to see Christmas, and snow, for the first time in his life, and I couldn’t help but hope that Paublo will get both his wishes.

Lucas is a kind, compassionate hero, one the reader can’t help but cheer for, and Anna is nice, with lots of secrets. I had to keep reading to see how she’d catch the bad guy. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $5.50. 218 pages.
