'Alvirah Meehan, the lottery winner turned amateur sleuth, teams up with private investigator Regan Reilly to solve a Christmas mystery.

Alvirah and Regan get in the middle of a case involving a beautiful eighty-foot blue spruce that has been chosen to spend the holidays as Rockefeller Center's famous Christmas tree. The folks who picked the tree don't have a clue that attached to one of its branches is a flask chock-full of priceless diamonds that Packy Noonan, a scam artist just released from prison, had hidden there over twelve years ago. An excited Packy breaks his parole and heads to Stowe, Vermont, to reclaim his loot. Once there, he is horrified to discover that his special tree will be heading to New York City the next morning. With a bumbling crew consisting of Jo-Jo, Benny, and an unsuccessful poet, Milo, he knows he has to act fast. What Packy does not know is that Alvirah and Regan are on a weekend trip to Stowe with Alvirah's husband, Willy; Regan's fiance, Jack; Regan's parents, Luke and Nora; and Alvirah's friend Opal, a lottery winner who lost all her winnings in Packy's scam. On Monday morning when they're suppose to head home, they learn that the tree is missing, Packy Noonan may be in the vicinity, and Opal has disappeared.'

I loved this book.

This was a fun, heartwarming yet different Christmas story. I wasnt sure what to expect going into this book, as it turns out, I really enjoyed it. I was looking for something to read this Christmas Season and I am really glad I picked this book up.

This cozy Christmas mystery was a fast and easy read, suitable for all ages, as it had no violence, gore, or adult themes, which is something I really loved about this book.

This book is full of action, adventure and bumbling criminals who seem to have some screws loose. With great characters and a good dose of Christmas, this book is a perfect read this Holiday Season.

This great book was a funny, suspenseful, adventure packed mystery that I would recommend to anyone for the holidays. I found myself laughing out loud, gasping and left with the warm and fuzzy's.

If you are looking for something light, fun, heartwarming and easy to read, this would be a great book for you. Readers who enjoy light mysteries and Christmas themes will definitely love this book.

The Christmas Thief by Mary and Carol Higgins Clark is a surprising Christmas story that I highly recommend you take a little time around the Holidays to relax and read.
