It’s the most wonderful time of the year…and for Heather Andrews, security manager at Timberwoods Mall, undoubtedly the busiest. But this Christmas, Heather has more to contend with than frazzled parents and disgruntled Santas. Angela Steinhart, a young woman who designed the mall’s spectacular holiday displays, has had a premonition that tragedy will strike on Christmas Eve. And Angela’s visions have a habit of coming true. Heather would love to dismiss the warning as holiday stress. But the more she gets to know the quiet, lonely Angela, the more she trusts her. In Lex, her boss, Heather finds an ally — and the glimmer of something more profound. And as the days count down, it will take all of her wits, hope, and unflagging courage to stop someone from destroying the season in one split second... (Goodreads)
Looking for a book for Christmas? Heather is the security manager at a mall...during Christmas time. She knows this is typically the busiest time of the year, but she isn't expecting much more than the usual last minute gift runs and crazy shoppers. When she receives an odd tip from a somewhat psychic, Heather isn't entirely sure what to make of it. Heather does know that the tip is most likely correct. Heather must decide what to do about the potential impending chaos and trouble. The book takes off from there.
Heather's character is believable as a security manager. She is careful, calm and prepared. She is a likable character. There are plenty of secondary characters that the reader will have varying reactions to. Heather's love interest is handsome and charismatic. However, the relationship between Heather and him is not delved into overly much. The book itself doesn't focus overly much on romance. The antagonist will confuse the reader; the reader will have to determine what to make of the antagonist.
The book is fairly fast-paced but can get a little slow in parts. The ending was unexpected and the book itself contains a few twists. Overall, the book is great for a long trip or car ride. This book is recommended to adult readers.
