The story is okay, it could have been better developed. Basically, Lola acts as a driver for a woman and her baby and then tries to sneak them into her family's house secretly. That's it, the whole story. There were also numerous typos but the worst thing was the length of the book.

The story ended at 39% of the book; the rest is filler, excerpts from other stories by the author. RAGE. RAGE. RAGE. Granted, there wasn't enough meat to the story to drag it out and make it longer but I hate when an

This story is a prequel. I have not read any of the other books in this series. Very interesting with Lola and her family. I loved the scene of Lola up in the tree to help get a friend past her family. Her crush with Jack was interesting and look forward to seeing more of them in funny situations. A great way to get introduced to some of the main characters. Hope to see more of them and learn more.

Very short read and that made me sad that is why it only got 3 stars. I will be snagging up more if the series though! Tamales for Christmas is a tradition in my home too, we don't make them but the Vicente family does and they are delicious. I want to read more.

A short, very comical prequel. First I've read in this series...overall an enjoyable read. More humor than mystery.

Thought I was getting the whole book, but only a preview. Like one reviewer wrote, Lola is the Hispanic Stephanie Plum. Seems like a fun series.

Cute and very short story. Liked the characters in the book, but wish that they would have translated some of the Spanish words that were used. I did know some, but others not a clue.

Cute. Short story about Lola who is almost a PI. Reminds me of the Christmas story a little bit. Enjoyed the description of Lola in the tree.

This wasn't really the type of Christmas Story I was expecting. There was words in Spanish that I didn't know what they meant. I didn't like that part.

The author constantly broke out in Spanish with no real translation. I found this annoying. I will not read any other books in the series.

Great story but it ended too quickly. I understand it is supposed to make us want to read the series, but this story just left alot of things hanging!

Very quick, fun read giving a quick glimpse into Lola's life before "Living la Vida Lola". Introduces most of the main characters of the series and mentions the others. Recommend to Lola lovers.
