Synopsis:

The Lola Cruz Christmas Story is a short, holiday prequel to Living the Vida Lola. Lola is summoned by a woman from her past and becomes part of her own Christmas story as she leads Margo Callaghan to safety.

Review:

I was looking for a quick read by a new author to start the New Year and Ms. Ramirez’s prequel was available so in short order I read this prequel.  I am not a huge fan of novella’s and short stories as I never feel like the main character is fully developed.  However, in this case I really felt like I got to know Lola in enough depth to see that as a main character, I would like to read more of her antics.

I enjoyed the occasional use of Spanish and am lucky enough to know just enough to get by ☺  Example:

Un poquito too early for a shot of the good stuff. Coffee.

This played in well with the humor that abounded throughout the short story.  The tree scene had me in stitches.  I so hoped Lola would not fall.  By the end, I was also wanting some Mexican cuisine.

There was just a hint of romantic tension between Jack and Lola which I would fully expect to be explored in the first book in the series Living the Vida Lola (Lola Cruz Mystery, #1)” 

A great little teaser to a ‘new to me’ series.
