Shannon Malloy is a 911 dispatcher who is
just getting over another bad romance. The snake of an ex,
she has just learned, has taken his latest to Jamaica for the
holidays. It just figures. When she picks up an extra shift
and is working with one of her long time best friends Dex,
something really weird happens. She gets a troubling 911
call. The caller talks about suicide but also mentions the
death of another woman. When they canít trace the call, the
night goes on. But Dex lets the police know about the call
and Detective Hugh is very interested. The woman the caller
mentioned was found dead earlier in the day.
Roses are left on Shannonís stoop and she
begins receiving crank calls, but she doesnít think anything
of it until the caller leaves a message. Her 911 caller is
stalking her. Hugh steps in and promises to keep her safe.
Shannon doesnít mind the hunk hanging around, but her ex was a
cop and she just isnít ready for another one. But Hugh makes
it clear he will wait, and he thinks the wait will be worth
it. Now can they just keep Shannon safe from the stalker, so
she can give love another chance?
A Christmas Stalking is a
fast-paced, powerful story about stalking and finding love. I
do feel that the story wrapped up a bit too quickly and left
me wanting more, but there was a good overall plot line and a
nice hunky hero. As a Rosette for Wild Rose Press this book
is a very quick read but I found it worth the time.
