Book Description


A gift inspires unexpected insight and generosity.


A short story based on the bestselling Karin Schaeffer thriller series.

Karin and Mac enjoy a quiet Christmas morning at home with their family. But after Mac gives Karin a special gift, she finds herself alone in Coney Island on a cold, winter day with a band of misfits who want her gift for themselves.

Enjoyed the whole series until Dead Rich which stretched my imagination too far and to a degree spoiled the series. This book like the others, apart from Dead Rich, had a good plot and characters with whom it was easy to root for

This was a very mild short story and not worth buying, I was expecting something more intense from the author, even at the low price it is not worth reading
