My Rating: 4
Christmas Wolf Surprise is the third title in the Red Wolf series, which is a sub-series within the Heart of the Wolf connecting world. No, you don’t have to have read all of the stories within this world to enjoy Gina’s and Maverick’s adventure… but there are plenty more great stories should you want to dive in further, which I highly recommend.
I had fun with Christmas Wolf Surprise, but because of the shortness of the story, I don’t want to go into many details as I try not to spoil a book for other readers. I can say that the Bigfoot hunters were fun and slightly clueless, but Gina gets a surprise that keeps on giving when she believes she sees a dog on the frozen lake and tries to rescue it… not realizing that the ice is cracking around her – and that’s not a dog. Her life is about to change, and so is Maverick’s.
I can read a Christmas romance any time of the year, and this one is fun, quirky, with just a touch of danger. I love seeing familiar faces from other parts of this world as well as the earlier books. Overall, Maverick and Gina’s romance was a delightful romp in a world I love revisiting.
