Summary

Christmas on Catalina Island - it's just what the doctor ordered.

Injured in the line of duty, FBI special agent Shane Donovan is longing for a few days of peace and quiet. Some nice meals, a couple of good books, and maybe a bottle of the best. No family, no friends, no fa la la la la...just a little time on his own to think things through.

But an offshore storm, a geriatric treasure hunter, and the guy who dumped him without a word two years earlier are about to unwrap all Shane's carefully laid holiday plans.

Sweet, but not very satisfying

It felt like there was another story to be told in this one. One that may have been even more interesting than the one that was told, or that would have added some depth to this one. All in all, it was inoffensive and the reunion was sweet. Not a complete waste of time, but should probably have been developed more.

Not bad

Any additional comments?

Josh Lanyon knows how to tell great angst-filled, forgive and forget, love stories. This is just another shinning example of that. Loved the characters, of course family has to be annoying as usual but love was there.

Sweet healing Christmas story

I liked this story about miscommunication and healing hearts. It was set up well and drawn to its inevitable conclusion with a little angst, but not too angsty, nothing pitiful like some Christmas stories can be. There's even clear growth for both characters equally. A very well balanced and pleasant get-your-act-together love story for good holiday reading. The narration was excellent.

Awesome Holiday Read

Audiobook Review December 2019:
I called A Case of Christmas a romantic comedy the first time around 4 years ago and after listening to Derrick McClain's narration, I would reinforce that statement. Shane and his Not-Norton is clever and fun in a I-want-to-whack-their-heads-together kind of way. Rom-com with little Lanyon tweaks here and there to make this holiday gem enjoyable anytime of the year.

Original Review December 2015:
Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a Lanyon read. Sometimes timing is everything and will Shane and his Not-Norton get it right the second time around? A great little romantic comedy for your holiday library

Fantastic narration! Ho-hum story....

I kept waiting for something to happen—this is Josh Lanyon! I thought there might be a mystery. Well, the mystery was that there wasn’t one.

Still, it was a sweet second chances Christmas story that focused on how humans talk themselves out of fully living but still hope for a full life.

Awesome

I wasn’t really sure what to expect with this book, but I loved it and was sad to see it end.

A Sweet Tale of Misgivings...

What a sweet little story. Shane & Linus...perceptions and misgivings of one's thoughts of what was in the past and how quickly it reignited in the present...a sweet Christmas tale...

Lovely short story.

As with all Josh Lanyon stories, I enjoyed getting to know the characters, and enjoying a little mystery thrown in for good measure.

Holiday Mishaps

A second chance story. I love the way that these two have to sort things out. There is also enough humor to make this a great holiday story.
