Savanna Edwards is feeling downright Scrooge-like. Who can blame her? A truly unjolly Santa—suit, beard and all—just repossessed her car because of her ex’s shady business dealings. She’d like to murder the no-good lying cheat, but somebody already did that for her—and left him right in the middle of her kitchen, wrapped up with a bow.

Detective Mark Donaldson has a rule a

Don't know what the title had to do with the book, but the book had a big book feel about it and really worked. Wasn't ready for the book to be over though...really liked it. Might we see Tom's book in the future??? I hope so!

meh, light and fluffy, little depth. sweet but my attention lagged.

4.5 stars but I'm in the holiday spirit so I rounded it up .

I wasn't expecting a book this short to be this good but it was great.
It was more a mystery than a romantic suspense and it left me guessing until the end and I really liked the ending.
The humor was great ,I was either smiling or really laughing . A great Christmas book.

I always like Christie Craig's characters :). I like that she doesn't give the Texas characters over the top accents or silly country names. I thought this was a good read.

This book was just fun! It's a very quick read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's quite a bit of mystery with a bit of romance thrown in and of course humor. Whenever I'm in the mood for a fun, entertaining and quick read I turn to Christie Craig and this one didn't disappoint.

What a fun book. Lots of laughs, lots of love, and plenty of suspense. Christie Craig had delivered again, and it was nice to catch up with Mark Donaldson from "Gotcha." Just what I needed to get in the holiday spirit.

It’s been so long since I’ve read Christie Craig. What a shame! Because she gives a reader everything and more in her books. Humor, romance, mystery, suspense, quirky characters, love, and did I say humor? I always laugh out loud when I read Ms. Craig. Always. Never fails. I also always fall in love with her heroes and heroines. Her heroes are Texan and sexy and her heroines are spunky, sassy, and intelligent. A win-win every time.

Savanna is not having a good day. As she’s relaxing at home she d

I first discovered Christie Craig by her YA novels (which are a must read even for adults!) and when I found out she wrote adult romances I knew I had to read them. I was NOT disappointed. The only thing that discouraged me was that The Cop Who Stole Christmas wasn't even 200 pages BUT the story was great, and you'll never be able to guess who killed her ex-husband.
The book starts out by Savannah's car being towed. It was one of the only things she got out of her divorce. Savannah, desperate and

Not your typical “home for the holidays” Christmas story, there is definitely something between Mark, the homicide detective, and Savannah, the florist, even before they meet. They’ve scoped each other out for some time before Savannah finally runs across the street to see if her cop neighbor can intervene and keep “Santa” from towing her car. Unfortunately, Santa’s paperwork is all in order and Mark can’t help much. He also explains to Savannah that he is homicide so to let him know if she ...more

It's been a long time since I've read Christie Craig's creations that I've forgotten on how innovative she's able to integrate her characters and inject humor into pressing situations.

Savannah, the female protagonist of the book was adorable, sarcastic and there's definitely a quirky side which I grow to love as the story progresses. Mark Donaldson, the male protagonist who had appeared in "Gotcha" which I do not remembered much anymore. Nevertheless, the lack of continuity of characters does n

3.5. Funny, quirky, adorable characters. Lots of hilarious dialogue and funny situations.

This is book 2 in the series and centers around Mark Donaldson. He's a trust fund baby who isn't really interested in the trust fund. He's a regular cop and loves what he does. Even though it hasn't been good enough for his parents or most of the girls he's been in relationships with. Then, along comes Savanna, who unknown to her, has her own porn sight. Well, she does when Mark Googles her, anyway.

A great little Christmas mystery

Savanna is having a bad day. A very very bad day.

Mark is the cop who lives across the street. He is attracted to Savanna, but thinks she lives too close to become involved with.

Santa is re-possessing her car. She jumped out of the tub to yell at Santa. In the middle of her weekly beauty regimen, she has mayonnaise in her hair and a blue mask on her face. She runs across the street to get help from Mark, the handsome cop.

The book is an upbeat (oxymoron) mystery fro

Have you ever been reading, and then suddenly caught yourself smiling? Not because a particularly funny scene in the book, but just because it was that good? I caught myself doing that several times while reading The Cop Who Stole Christmas. One time, I was having a lunch and looked around to see if anyone spied me smiling like a lunatic.

I have to admit that I was on the fence with Book #1 "Gotcha." It was good but not "knock my socks off" good. This one made up for it. I loved it and am still s

I don't understand how the title came about. Well, there was a cop... and it was Christmas... and there was a theft. OK, so I can see that now. Still, I think they could have come up with something better.
At any rate, this was another good read from Christie Craig. A bit quicker than I like, but good just the same. As for how the cop, Christmas and stealing come together... Well, you will have to read the book. Don't worry, it will be worth it.

Ok, there is just something about CCS books that I just love. Despite being a tiny bit doesn't even matter because the formula always works for me. I love the hunky alpha cop who's sweet, sexy, protective, and of course thoughtful. I love the quirky damsel in distress. And I love the embarrassing antics that never fail to get me laughing outloud. The only disappointment was that it ended too soon. Thank you, Christie, for another fun read.

Perfect for a night by the fire while you escape the hustle & bustle of the holiday season.

This book was exactly what I needed on a lazy Sunday. Quick paced with lots of humor and fun characters that make just want to smile. Yep, you know you are reading one of Christie Craig's books! She knows how to do it right! I have read both of her series and I know whenever I pick one up I am going to have a good time reading!

This book is my guilty pleasure and I enjoyed from start to finish. The story keeps the reader interested and guessing the whole way through and the element of a perfect romance surely didn't hurt my feelings. The book was funny and sweet and just enjoyable. I would recommend this to any woman or even man who needs a little romance and a lot of humor in their life.

As always, Christie keeps you laughing the entire book. It was a quick, funny read that brought new characters into the mix.

One wonders if we'll see Bethany and Tom rekindle their relationship...maybe???

Christie Craig does it again. Another great romantic, suspenseful and comedic story that hits a home run. Mark is neighbors with Savannah. The two meet when Savannah's ex is found dead in her kitchen. Can they overcome the past while solving her ex's murder?

I really like this book, not as well as I have some of her others. The humor just wasn't like it was in other books this author has written. It was well worth the read. Nothing like Santa to take your car lol. Loved the cop and neighbor romance.

I loved this book from beginning to end. The characters were rich and full, and pulled you right into their lives. I have read several books written by Ms. Craig, and have never been disappointed by any of them. Once you start reading, you won't want to stop until you are done.

This is a cute romance and clever mystery with plenty of humor mixed in with the danger. Christie Craig knows how to write the perfect blend of humorous romantic suspense, and this novella is an excellent introduction to her style for those who haven't yet discovered her books.

I read the first one and loved the ball busting female lead so you know I had to read this one. I liked how Christie Craig made it so both the male leads get hurt in the family jewels! The book is nonstop laughs and for once I was not able to guess who the bad guy was until almost the end!!!
I loved the premise of the story but I felt it needed more. I have the kindle version and was sad that it was only at 77% when the story was finished. The ending was very abrupt. I love Christie Craig's books so am hopeful it's a fluke and the next one will be just as good as her others.
