Cowabunga Christmas - Anna Celeste Burke Anna Celeste Burke

This is basically a light murder mystery. Dressing the body as Santa doesn't make it feel Christmassy and the writing is amateur at best. Life is too short. Nobody even went surfing yet!

Christmas Reads
Cowabunga Christmas - Anna Celeste Burke Anna Celeste Burke
A Christmas with the Dodger - Charlton Daines
The Victorian Christmas - Anna Selby
All I Want For Christmas is a Werewolf - J.S. Scott
The Christmas Books, Volume 1: A Christmas Carol/The Chimes - Charles Dickens,Michael Slater

I don't know how many of these I'll actually manage to read in December, but I have a Kindle folder for Christmas books that I'd like to read.  There are more than are shown here, but the widget is moving slow and I can't be bothered.

 

Anyway, I think it's time for a re-read of Dickens and I'd like to try some others if I can find the time between my other reads.

They Killed Santa in Cowabunga Christmas @aburke59
Cowabunga Christmas - Anna Celeste Burke Anna Celeste Burke

Cowabunga Christmas by Anna Celeste Burke hooked me. How can I possibly resist sitting in that lounger, watching Kim and Brien hit the surf and wonder what trouble they will find as they butt into a murder mystery.

 

Christmas, a tropical beach locale and a dead Santa…Merry Christmas to you.

MY REVIEW

 

Cowabunga Christmas by Anna Celeste Burke has so much going for it…A gorgeous cover, hot surfer dudes and dudettes, Santa, a murder mystery and…

We begin our adventure by jumping the fence around the closed pool at this elite resort and taking a “midnight” swim. I have jumped a fence or two in my time, so I thought this was a good sign.

It’s Christmas, Kim is on her honeymoon with her hot and hunky surfer dude hubby, Brien. Kim was going to learn to surf and she got her very own wettie for Christmas.

They are opposites – He is hard and fast, she is slow and soft. The picture of them, in my head, is my favorite two characters from NCIS Los Angeles, Kensi Blye, Daniela Ruah, and Marty Deeks, Eric Christian Olsen.

Shortly after their pool jumping adventure, a body is found floating in the pool…dead. Oh no, it’s Santa.

 

We have a double and a triple cross and is there a treasure?

 

Cowabunga Christmas by Anna Celeste Burke with its easy reading and colorful characters has all the elements for a fun and humorous cozy mystery.

 

One mystery is solved…but, wait, there’s more on the horizon in Gnarly New Year.

 

“Cowabunga Christmas – it’s the most epic Christmas anyone could every have. We had one of the most awesome mornings surfing.” From Brien.

MY REVIEW

 

Gnarly New Year by Anna Celeste Burke is Book II in the Corsario Cove cozy mystery series. I would recommend started with Book I, Cowabunga Christmas.

 

Cozies have such fun titles and covers, I find them irresistible, even though they are not the hardcore mystery, thriller and suspense reading that I love the most.

 

Gnarly New Year by Anna Celeste Burke picks up where Cowabunga Christmas left off. The murderer had been found, but there were many unanswered questions.

 

We have the small town cop with an attitude and lots of surfers. Kim and Brien partake of the sport as they follow the trail to the…treasure. It’s not really a treasure, per se, but it is the object everyone is looking for.

 

The dialogue is fun and the characters entertaining, especially with all of Brien’s little quirks. He’s such a sweetie pie.

 

I received a copy of Gnarly New Year from Anna Celeste Burke in return for an honest review.

I really enjoyed This Cozy Mystery It was a fun, fast moving read and I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. I've given it a 4.5* rating. Not really suitable for under 18.
