Book Description:
Leaping Yule logs! Santa Claus has gone missing! And it's almost Christmas! What can we do? Well, Tweedle the elf decides they need to hire an amazing Private Eye to find him. Unfortunately, all they can afford is Nick Flebber.

Flebber's a private eye riding a dry patch, income-wise, looking to take any case that walks through his door. Sure, the elf's money looks legit, but how does he know this isn't the effects of some mind altering drugs? Then he remembers he can't afford any mind altering drugs. So, before you can say "pa rum pum pum pum," Nick's off to the North Pole to track Big Red down. Bringing his old-school methods to Santa's workshop, Nick is soon grilling Santa's helpers to see if any of them were trying to help themselves. He's cross examining Mrs. Claus to make sure he wasn't dating on the side and soon discovers that the Clauses have an adopted daughter, which gets Nick's mistletoe all hot and bothered.

But where is the big man? And his sleigh? Not to mention the tiny reindeer? Nick follows the leads back to his old stomping grounds and discovers he's up against the underbelly of the holiday season. The clock is ticking; Can Nick get Santa home for the holidays?

It's a genre-bending comedy/fantasy that takes the holiday happenings and turns them on their head. A funny, NoeLOL book for kids and the kid inside everyone. Yule love it!

What did you think of the book? (Why this book?, New Author? Read more by author? Keeping? Thoughts on Hero? Heroine?)
Really cute short Christmas story about a Private Detective who is hired by Santa's elves when Santa is kidnapped.

The quirky one liners and the personality of the elves makes this story loveable and completely enjoyable.

Nick the PI is a cynical kind of man but when he spends just a little time with Santa's Elves the kid in him, who once believed in Santa, peaks out and helps Nick see there is more good in the world than he thinks. All he has to do is save Santa.

Tweedle is such an adorable elf and some of my favorite lines are interactions between Tweedle and Nick.

This book is highly enjoyable and would recommend it to anyone.

It really was.

Needed something very different and I'm testing this. It is my design but with a lot of inspiration from another layout maker. Hoping to have it up for use soon.

No worries at all! I know I often don't respond to all of your posts either - I read them and think of comments but sometimes just run out of time and never manage to find my way back. :) It happens, so don't worry if you miss something. I won't get upset. :D
