Who needs mistletoe?

Most people wouldn’t think of a bad Santa case as the perfect Christmas gift. Then again, Molly Malone, office manager at Hunt Investigations, isn’t most people, and she could really use a distraction from the fantasies she’s been having since spending the night with her very secret crush, Lucas Knight. Nothing happened, not that Lucas knows that—but Molly just wants to enjoy being a little naughty for once . . .

Whiskey and pain meds for almost-healed bullet wounds don’t mix. Lucas needs to remember that next time he’s shot on the job, which may be sooner rather than later if Molly’s brother, Joe, finds out about them. Lucas can’t believe he’s drawing a blank on his (supposedly) passionate tryst with Molly, who’s the hottest, smartest, strongest woman he’s ever known. Strong enough to kick his butt if she discovers he’s been assigned to babysit her on her first case. And hot enough to melt his cold heart this Christmas.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 03, 2018 – Shalvis's sixth Heartbreaker Bay book spices up Christmas with a hint of humor, a dash of suspense, and a whole lot of naughty fun under the mistletoe. Molly Malone is a 27-year-old investigator who's tired of being sheltered by her brother and the other alpha males of Hunt Investigations. She's ready to take to the field, but everyone else in the office is determined to keep her behind a desk, particularly her brother's best friend, Lucas Knight. Recovering from a recent gunshot wound, and not yet cleared to return to duty, Lucas is asked to keep Molly out of trouble; he's desperate to do anything that doesn't require convalescing, so he agrees. When he can't dissuade her from investigating sinister shenanigans perpetrated by a bad Santa at a small San Francisco Christmas village, he decides to step in as her partner. The characters come alive in this lighthearted, fun story written for cold winter nights.

Customer Reviews

Love Molly & Lucas and friends!

Molly and Lucas both work for Hunt Investigations with Molly in the office and Lucas as an investigator. Molly’s older neighbors come to her with concerns about the Christmas Village where they work and are not being paid as expected but Hunt Investigations will not take the case. Molly decides to look into it on her own. Lucas, while watching over her, also helps her to investigate. Jill Shalvis has created in depth characters in Molly and Lucas. They each seem to be fighting their own demons as they spend time together both on and off the case. This books begins and ends with humorous situations. I fell in love with their entire group of friends and got so much enjoyment from this book. Congrats to Ms Shalvis on her latest 5 star read.

Another satisfying read!

Whenever I want a satisfying read, one of my go to authors is Jill Shalvis. I think that I have read every book that she’s written and have never been disappointed. I was not disappointed with Molly and Lucas’ story. I think their story is one of my favorites. I like that Lucas saw Molly and her abilities when others like Joe and Archer couldn’t or wouldn’t. Even though his protective instincts came out, he let her handle the situation herself (at least, most of the time). His family came as a surprise, as most of the alpha heros are loners. All I can say is that if you haven’t read any of Jill’s books, then you are missing out on wonderful, witty, and loving characters.

Lucas and Molly!!! male all the way......Molly......the alpha female who can tame the alpha male. Fast pace, funny, sweet, heart wrenching, and yummy all at once.
