Every good Dick needs a sidekick…

Actor Tom Lewis’s world came crashing down when a honey trap and tabloid exposé outed him and put pay to his flourishing career. The housewives favourite was most well-known for his role as ‘Detective Fox’ in the quaint British series Malmesbury Murders. But after the media speculation about his sexuality, the show is in hiatus and Tom hasn’t worked six months.

Now things are getting serious, the money he made from M.M is running out and he needs a job desperately. So when Tom’s agent offers him a six week seasonal acting job, he reluctantly agrees… and takes on the role of Santa for a top London department store.

This decision changes Tom’s luck. Not only will he have an income for the holiday season, he’ll also be working with a very sexy young elf that he spotted at the auditions, named Eli Mason.

While on a break Tom overhears two unidentified store workers discussing a ‘job to get a little Christmas bonus”. He realizes the job is of the illegal sort. Now, Tom could call the police, but then again, wouldn’t it be great for his flagging career if Detective Fox saved the day.

So Fox is on the case, and as every good Dick needs a sidekick, Tom decides Eli will fit the role, in more ways than one.”

Detective Fox & the Christmas Caper is a romantic comedy that is light, fluffy and very cute. With so many holiday stories coming out I like the variety and this one is very creative.

This novella had a unique quality to it. Sort of like the old fashioned mystery shows. Tom & Eli (The Detective and the sidekick) are trying to catch people involved in a heist that hasn't happened yet. They even use the help of some of their friends.

There's a quirkiness to this tale that was a lot of fun to read. A perfect holiday novella that will for sure make you chuckle a few times and enjoy the sexy times between Tom and Eli as well as the cleverness.

There was a bit of head hopping however that I found to be frustrating at times and forced me to have to back track and reread. Often finding myself reading in the wrong person's head. It did take me out of the story a few times.

This is a happy for now tale. A sweet story to help get you into the holiday spirit.
