Holy Night

Author: Colleen Coble
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
November 2013
Genre: Novella / Christmas / Suspense

One sinister phone call has derailed their wedding.
Will they let it tear them apart forever?

A Christmas wedding on the beach—what could be more perfect? Poinsettias and fragrant pikake blossoms, soft sand and mistletoe, the gentle sound of the surf and the wedding march played on a ukulele. This wedding has been a long time coming, with Bane's trust issues and Leia's worries about her childlike sister, Eva.

Now they can hardly wait for the day to arrive. Thrilled to be a bridesmaid, Eva keeps trying on her ruffled dress. The tent is reserved, the caterers paid. Everything is going as planned—until Leia's phone rings and her world skids out of control. A muffled voice informs Leia that Eva's been kidnapped and will be killed unless Leia calls off the wedding without explanation—and no police! If she disobeys instructions and tells Bane, she'll risk her beloved sister's life. But how can she ever handle this without his help? And how can he ever trust her if she lies to him now?

Irresistible romance meets thrilling suspense in this holiday update to USA Today best-selling author COLLEEN COBLE’s best-selling Aloha Reef series.

HOLY NIGHT is a Christmas set novella based on Ms. Coble’s popular Aloha Reef series, set in Hawaii. I enjoyed this story. It was  a quick read. I didn’t like that first Leia is pulling away from Bane, then when she finally gets brave enough to tell him, she’s wanting physical contact, and he doesn’t. Both Bane and Leia have issues to work through in HOLY NIGHT which is unusual for a novella, so that was nice.

If you are looking for a short story to read, set in Hawaii at Christmas, then HOLY NIGHT is a book to consider. 93 pages. $1.99. 4 stars.
