Publisher's Summary

There's more Maggie to love as pregnancy expands her waistline and shortens her temper. And now the hag has to deal with the holidays too? If this is the most wonderful time of the year, somebody goofed.

Jackie Parker's marriage is on the rocks, and we're not talking ice here. 'Tis the season for a happy family, but Jackie just wants to ride this Christmas out alone with her dog, her monkey and her remote control. Unfortunately the Dark Prince has other plans.

Miami is a hotbed of criminal activity, but no one expects to be robbed by Santa himself! With the big jolly man in the bright red suit doing a few B&Es in the neighborhood, Maggie's vacation is soon swapped out for a criminal investigation. And she's teaming up with a new neurotic partner. Holiday hilarity ensues when Damaged Goods and the Laundry Hag join forces for a takedown you won't want to miss!

A lot of fun!

This book was by far my favourite in this series. It was cozy and fun, and I had a wonderful time listening to it.

I loved Maggie and Jackie together – I kind of prefer their sleuthing over the Parker family. For one, there was less focus on family drama and more on the investigation. But more there was also a solid friendship and humour that really spoke to me.

Another thing that I really loved was Suzanne Cerreta’s narration. Her accent for Maggie was spot on and switched between them seamlessly. She truly gets the characters and brings them to life and makes you a part of the story – to the point where you felt like washing your own hands from that sticky white substance Jackie put her hand in.

I hope there will be more of this duo in the future, because they were a lot of fun!

A copy of this book was generously gifted to me by the author.

Love..

Although I (still!) have not started the Laundry Hag-series, The Damaged Goods-series is one of my favorites. I did not matter that I did not know Maggie in advance as it was easy to get into the story.

The story is told in alternating chapters from Maggie and Jackie's POV. They both need a distraction. Maggie from her pregnancy and Jackie from her failing marriage and her thoughts of Logan. They team up to find the Santa burglar that robs houses so close to Christmas.

Those two women are a hoot and I would love to read another adventure about them. But I also loved hearing more about Jackie and her two Parker men. It is such a difficult triangle and my heart was crying for all of them.

I must say that I ship Jackie/Logan like crazy!

Funny book plus funny narrator makes for a really funny reading experience.

After Maggie gets to her vacation destination she meet a new friend who not only bakes, but has a mystery to solve. This book is so funny I laughed out loud more than once. If you like comedy and mystery you’ll love this book. I did!

Loved it!

I absolutely love the damaged goods series and the Jackie story and this one makes me want to check out all Maggie’s adventures. This story was great! I love that i can’t tell with her books who the bad guy is right from the start. So good!

I received a free copy and left my honest review

Hart Disappoints

I found Jennifer Hart through Devil in the Junior League, one of my favorite books. I enjoy her Pasta Shop series and, usually, her Laundry Hag series. But I hate this crossover book. When I realized that it was a crossover, I decided to listen to the Damaged Goods books before listening to Christmas Rental, so that I would know the characters from Miami. Big mistake. The 1st Damaged Goods book was okay, mildly annoying. I couldn't finish the 2nd one, and returned the 3rd one without ever downloading it. By the middle of the 2nd Damaged Goods book, I loathed the main character, Jackie, and her brother in law, Logan. Unfortunately, this Christmas Rental book seems to be more about Jackie and Logan than about the Laundry Hag. I won't even be able to finish listening to his book. I really don't understand the hard turn Jennifer Hart has taken with these Miami characters & story. I feel like I'm listening to a cheesy fan-fic writer casting herself as a character in her own romantic fantasy.
