Tis the season to look for your next favorite Christmas story, and P.D. delivers with one in a favorite genre of mine that rarely sees such a thing. I loved Simon Lee in Phantom Thief, and I was glad to see him again as he tried to re-adjust to normal civilian teenage life... and fail. We get to see more of his unique relationship with his father, him using his special brain and set of skills, and work to try and save Christmas for one family even as it seems like his is going out the window.

Gosh, I love this guy sooo much. He has sarcasm down to an absolute T you guys! I practically BREATHE sarcasm so this is epic....He kinda reminds me of Friday Barnes, the way he can figure out little things about people so easily, and then the way he lets them know..... Also, I could totally relate to how he felt about God, the

Still kind of amazed how much depth of emotion these characters manage to pull out of me in the space of just a few words! I've read books that spent paragraphs or pages or chapters going into what the characters were feeling and why but that didn't touch or connect with me like these books do. And it's done so simply--one line of dialogue thrown into an otherwise hilarious battle of banter; one thought that randomly flashes through someone's mind; one look when something touches a nerve no one ...more

Goodness, wow, this? It is so good! The suspense, the father/son banter and love, the care, the spying, the hostage, this is wonderful! I loved the first book in this series, but … I love this shorter story more, because, hey, it’s so good! Even younger readers will enjoy this special little spy story.
I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review and am truly happy to provide it.

I beta read this book, and boy did I have fun. I enjoyed the story, reminded me of my writing. I'm reading the series a little backwards, but it doesn't bother me much. I think the authors writing is different and kept me reading. A few things were unclear but that was why I was reading I liked Lee a lot his wit is so fun. I thought the epilogue was really good. I can't wait to read the rest of her books.

Hmmm... not my cup of tea. I don't think this kind of story is my cup of tea in general, although I appreciate the opportunity to dip my toes into a genre I don't typically gravitate toward. Rating and review to come sometime on Christmas Eve!

This is not a stand alone story, so if you haven’t read the first book, you might be confused. I was.
I found it odd and confusing, and the only reason I kept reading was because I was hoping to find out what was going on with Lee/Simon/Winnie (or whatever his name is) and his dad. I never did find out much. I also didn’t really enjoy it because of the not so good relationship between the 15-year-old main character and his father. The son is keeping secrets, he isn’t respectful, and just does his

This is another quick read from P. D. Atkerson. If you are looking for something short, fun, and light this could fit the bill. It could use an edit and is confusing in places, though, so having read the first book in the series is helpful.

I do like Simon Lee’s character and particularly liked his transition in this story.

P.D. Atkerson is a homeschooled writer, living in Montana. She spends almost as much time in the worlds she creates as she does the real one.
When she’s not reporting the stories of Simon Lee and other heroes, she’s making ice cream, learning French or traveling to different worlds through the portals of books. She has a black belt in sarcasm and a master’s degree in useless facts.
