by Petie McCarty
Genre: Cozy Mystery, Romantic Suspense
No Angels for Christmas. . . a cozy romantic mystery with suspense from The Mystery Angel Romances series. An angel hidden in every book waiting for you to figure out the angel’s identity . . .
Child psychologist Rachel Kelly isn’t quite sure how to handle the situation with her newest client—a six-year-old boy who says he can talk to angels and one is coming to help Rachel. She already has her hands full of trouble this Christmas season, and things quickly take a turn for the worse when a stalker crashes Rachel’s Christmas party and takes her young clients hostage.
Police negotiator, Lt. Jake Dillon, walked away from his fiancée Rachel when she suddenly balked at having kids. His kids. Yet when the hostage crisis erupts, Rachel calls Jake first. Now he has a choice to make—stand back and wait for the cavalry to save Rachel or step in and try to save her himself. Time is running out, and Jake may be their only chance for rescue.
Unless Rachel’s little angel-spying client is telling the truth…
“Want to tell me what that was all about?” Wally asked as they climbed into their Crown Victoria.
“You said ex-fiancée.”
Jake ignored him, hoping he’d shut up. Seeing Rachel—touching her—had shaken him.
He shot Wally a fulsome glare.
“Just saying is all. Kind of hard to believe you’d let somebody that gorgeous get away.”
“But we’re partners. Partners talk.”
“We’ve only been partners for three days.”
“We can still talk about stuff that bothers you,” Wally prodded.
“Nothing’s bothering me,” Jake snapped. “Come find me in three months. We’ll talk then.”
“But as real partners, we’re supposed to share—”
“No, we’re not,” Jake growled. “You don’t need to know everything about me.”
Wally stuck his palms up. “Okay, okay. Jeez! Doesn’t matter anyway. Some things I can see for myself.”
Jake glowered at him again. “What are you talking about?”
“I thought you said to drop it?”
“Spit it out.”
“I can see you’re not over your ex-fiancée. Yet.”
Jake swung the Crown Vic hard into traffic. “You’re crazy.”
Wally shrugged. “I don’t think so.”
Jake’s hands tightened on the steering wheel until his knuckles turned white. Silence descended into the car’s dreary gun-metal gray interior. For all of two minutes.
“Want to talk about it?” Wally asked.
“Hell, no!” Jake barked and took a right onto Mills Avenue where the College Park Police station was located.
“Just thought you might.”
“Well, you thought wrong.”
Wally calmly stared out the passenger window. “Cause it was plain as the nose on my face, you’re still in love with her.”

The Mystery Angel Romances Book 1
Kellen Brand’s inheritance turns out to be a whopper—one dilapidated farm in West Virginia and one guardian angel!
Since Kellen is convinced no sane woman would choose to live in Riverside, she vows to sell her farm and quick. Her handsome neighbor Luke Kenyon must block the farm sale or risk exposure of his family’s secrets. While Kellen has located one potential buyer, she faces a town full of objectors. Someone is trying to frighten her off, and Luke is forced to step in and rescue her more than once.
Unfortunately, Kellen can’t seem to stay out of trouble. She stumbles onto a clandestine hazardous-waste-dumping operation next to her farm, and she prays Luke has one more rescue up his sleeve. It’s her only hope of staying alive.
Unless her mother really did leave her a guardian angel . .
Petie spent a large part of her career working at Walt Disney World — “The Most Magical Place on Earth” — where she enjoyed working in the land of fairy tales by day and creating her own romantic fairy tales by night, including her new series, The Cinderella Romances. She eventually said good-bye to her “day” job to write her stories full-time. These days Petie spends her time writing sequels to her regency time travel series, Lords in Time, and her cozy-mystery-with-a-dash-of-romantic-suspense series, the Mystery Angel Romances.
Petie shares her home on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee with her horticulturist husband, a spoiled-rotten English Springer spaniel addicted to pimento-stuffed green olives, and a noisy Nanday conure named Sassy who made a cameo appearance in Angel to the Rescue.
