Before you read what I have to say about GOODBYE NOEL, you should know that historical fiction is not my favorite genre and World War II and the post war era are among my least favorite.
Sorry, Nike. The truth is the truth.
Having said that, GOODBYE NOEL by Nike Chillemi is an exception to the rule. Reading GOODBYE NOEL was an unexpected treat. Her rich vibrant writing, interesting characters, and a suspenseful plot work together to make an entertaining story.
A definite must read for book lovers who enjoy romance, suspense, or historical fiction.
Here’s what the back cover blurb says:
Will a young pediatric nurse determined to make it on her own be able to care for an infant whose mother was murdered and escape the killer, who has struck again? Can she trust the stalwart village detective with her life, and her heart, as he works to catch this killer before somebody else dies?
Pediatric nurse, Katrina Lenart, grew up strong willed and independent minded, while sharing her mother’s flair for high fashion. When the police chief gives her an orphaned baby to care for, her maternal instincts take over and she’s willing to fight anyone who might not have the infant’s best interests at heart, even the man she’s growing to love. After an attempt is made to kidnap the baby, she and the resolute village detective team up and do some sleuthing, undercover as well as at a fancy ball.
Detective Ian Daltry is a widower with a child and is not interested in a new love. Hunting a killer who stops at nothing has placed him in the position where he must protect a beautiful young woman he’s drawn to. Is there’s something he’s overlooked in analyzing the case? Will he find out what that is before this ruthless murderer kills someone he loves?
