Official Summary: “Murder is on the list of gifts this holiday season. At least it is when you’re apart of the deadliest gang in town. When young Anuaka’s family discovers her involvement with the local criminals, they give her an ultimatum. Get out of the gang or get out of their lives. However, removing herself from the gang is inconceivable. The only way out is death.
Anuaka must choose between her loving family and a new family promising something she truly desires. A life out of poverty. On the surface the decision is unimaginable. Underneath lies something more sinister. Anuaka is powerful, stunning, and downright conniving.
Happy Holiday Homicides takes you to the land of Serenium. An island of gods, pharaohs, and ancient power. An incredible short, that releases and action-packed opening to Anuaka’s twisted world. ” – Goodreads
Review: The start threw me off a bit with what the police officer said. It felt so random and out of place. But then the more I read the more I kind of realized maybe it not that out of place. With it being 63 pages it did feel rushed in places, the flow felt off as well like it could have done with some more grammar just to slow it down and give some of the story time to breathe.
I did not see that twist coming, it was very well done and added that extra depth to the story. For how short it was the Author managed to fit a fair amount into the book.
(Bookcover needs some work)
