    A Christmastime short, sweet, and clean mystery. It is suitable for teen readers. The characters were interesting. Who committed the crime wasn't a big surprise.

    3 Stars I purchased a copy of the novella Holiday Heist: A Celebrity Mystery: A Humorous Romantic Cozy Mystery (A Recipe For Disaster Mystery Book 2) by Zanna Mackenzie and this review was given freely. Lizzie and Jack remain partners in love and mystery solving in this fast paced twisted story which takes place Christmas Eve into Christmas Day. A short Holiday mystery with promise.

    Holiday Heist was a cute, short story at about 70 pages. The rest of the book was an excerpt of book one of the series. The action was a little slow and the mystery wasn't very mysterious. But the character development was enjoyable. Holiday Heist was a cute, short story at about 70 pages. The rest of the book was an excerpt of book one of the series.

    It was a pretty good read. Wasnt one that I would say oh you have to read. But the characters were okay, and the story line as well. I was happy to have read it. Just wont be one I will be all you have to read. If you read good, if not no big deal. I gave it a B or 3 stars.

    Need a quick read to help you escape from reality? Then try this short romantic mystery - it will fill an hour or so and entertain you fully. I just might be in the market for more of Zanna’s books for future escapes this season. Also, I love the British setting.

    Rounding up from 2 1/2 stars. I liked the characters of the book fine but the whodunnit was not surprising. It was cute, short and somewhat entertaining but not a great mystery. Also had a few editing problems. No sex. A few kisses. No violence or language.

    i read this book to fulfil the goal read a book about a heist. it was adverage at best. something i would expect from high school fiction. still for a good clean mystery for a preteen it was about right.

    A Short Romantic Caper The story was very short but the spelling was better. This story picks up where Murder on the Menu left off. It gives closure to both.

    Ok This book was pretty much a typical cozy mystery, nothing special, not sure I'd read the next book in the series or not. Ok This book was pretty much a typical cozy mystery, nothing special, not sure I'd read the next book in the series or not.

    Very Short The book was over before I really got into the story. Approximately 50 ℅ of the e-book was about other books. I will not but another book by this author.

And due to his former line of work, he knows a lot of big wigs in the Hollywood crown. So, it could come as no surprise when Actress Arabella Saunders wants Jack to find her priceless necklace, an irreplaceable family heirloom. Main character Lizzie Carter, of course, is starstruck and wants to be a part of the investigation. I thought this novella had some good bones and a great twist but I think it could have used a bit of bulking up. Things were resolved a bit too quickly for my taste. But all in all Zanna Mackenzie gave us a choice piece to add to our digital library. Definitely check this one out if you are looking for a quick read. I paid for this book with my own money.
