Review: The Christmas Clues (Christmas Wishes Book 5) by Scarlet Wilson

What is Christmas without some healthy competition?

When successful Chicago sports journalist Dawson McLeod and botanist Piper Davis receive a mysterious summons to an attorney’s office, they learn they are the potential benefactors to a famous and reclusive author's historic estate—including her mansion, famous gardens, greenhouses, and more. Neither of them has had any contact with the author of their favorite Christmas book since they were both scheduled to interview her as children. But only Piper, who arrived early, succeeded, much to Dawson’s envy.

Both Piper and Dawson have ideas for how they plan to benefit the community with their potential winnings, but the legacy has strings. The author has left them a series of clues to be solved around the city starting twenty days before Christmas. Once childhood rivals and now strangers, Dawson and Piper must work together to uncover the clues by Christmas if they want either of their dreams to come true.

Will working together during the most magical time of year open their hearts, or will their lingering feud get in the way?


My Review:

A fun Christmas story.

Twenty-six years ago, when Piper and Dawson were just kids, they both planned to interview Margaret Smith, a famous children’s author.  Only, Piper got to Margaret’s house ahead of Dawson and she did the interview on her own.  Dawson never forgave Piper for stealing the interview away from him.  Piper and Dawson are reunited when they are both named in Margaret’s will.  They have been given the task of solving some clues before they can receive their inheritance.  But there is more to it than just an inheritance; a little mischief has been thrown into the mix as well.  And it is all in the name of love.

This is the kind of book where the characters are easy to love.  I only wanted the best for them.  As they searched for answers to the clues they were given, the locations that they went to were easy to visualize through the author’s words.  I was drawn into the story from the start and had a hard time putting it down.  It is the perfect Christmas story.
