(The tenth book in the Enigma series)
A novel by

Captain Chase Hunter decides this Christmas with Tessa’s kids will be epic. Show no fear, suck it up and boldly go where even the Taliban would not dare to go, is his mantra. Then the live Nativity at their church catches on fire thanks to Tessa��s oldest son, when he comes to the rescue of his little sister and her special needs friend. To make things interesting, when the firemen hit the manger with a blast of water, the baby Jesus hangs precariously from a nearby tree. The captain saves the reputation of the three Scott children, only to have to explain to local police why escape camels and pot-belly pigs are now running wild in the streets of Grass Valley.

Watching from the shadows, Anthony Gallo, an escaped felon, lurks with dangerous intent, hoping to snatch his daughter and escape to Mexico. But with Captain Hunter on the scene, along with an FBI Agent who has tracked him for weeks, his options are limited. Add to the unexpected presence of law enforcement, he has no idea which little girl belongs to him. Is it the one with the curly hair and the pretty mother who wipes her tears, or the Down syndrome child who sobs in the arms of another woman?

Tessa can’t believe how her magical Christmas starts to unravel as she and Captain Hunter hope to announce their marriage to her children. What was supposed to be a new beginning for the whole family, is now in turmoil when her ex-husband tries to have the FBI arrest Chase. Add to that, the bloodied FBI Agent arrives at her front door with news of a conspiracy that may involve her daughter, while the oldest son is in trouble with the police. Just when she thinks things can’t get worse, a substitute Santa, smelling of alcohol, has replaced the usual jolly ole elf at the church’s family night.

Things continued to go horribly awry, as Chase and Tessa try to salvage Christmas and keep the magic alive one more time. Will these unlikely heroes manage to save a little girl from an escaped felon to keep a family from being destroyed? With Captain Hunter’s can-do attitude and the support of his new family, a little girl in a tutu gives him the gift he never thought he’d own. Grab your copy and get ready for a wild holiday ride full of mishaps, laughs and surprises that reminds us what is important. Family.
