Sabotaged Christmas involves sabotage on the work site, romance, and dysfunctional families … how could that combination result in a warm, fuzzy Christmas ending Characters I loved and wanted to have their dreams come true. Others, I wanted to keep my distance from and hoped they would get their just deserts. Plot twists I didn’t see coming kept me reading past bedtime! I especially liked the ending with all the threads tied together! Well done, Carole.

Sabotaged Christmas was a fun mystery! Yes, it was a mystery, with lots of angles I did not predict, but it was fun because Toni DeLuca finds love with a very difficult man – Perrin Douglas. Toni is a successful construction owner who becomes the target of a sabotaging. Her business, and her life, are in jeopardy. Although she is dealing with this problem, she is still pushing ahead to get the jobs her and her crew have started on.
Perrin Douglas and his son Blake, are new to the town. Their house is way too small for the two of them so Perrin hires DeLuca Construction to come and add on to the house. Little does Perrin know that the company he has hired is owned by a woman. Perrin had a difficult marriage and finds it very difficult to trust women. That is, until he meets Toni.
This story is exciting and keeps you guessing. One point I will give away is that one night, the person who is sabotaging Toni breaks into her house and hits her on the head. How’s that for excitement? The characters are wonderful and Brown adds just the right amount of God into the picture. The story is wholesome mixed in with a lot of mystery. It can be read at any time of year because it’s not Christmas that it’s set around, but in trying to find the culprit behind all the sabotage.
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
I give it ♥♥♥♥
