A Christmas Miracle in Pajaro Bay is the story of Lori and Matt DiPietro. Lori is having a difficult time coping with some devastating news and Matt is being a kind and supportive husband. Matt’s dangerous undercover life is presumably behind him, much to Lori’s relief. But when an unforeseen event occurs on Christmas Eve, the couple realize that the danger is never really over.
I loved this super short story. The author has expertly added a ton of information in just 40 short pages, yet A Christmas Miracle in Pajaro Bay has it all – a heartbreaking background, suspense, mystery, love and more. It’s most definitely a standalone story, since we’re given a engaging backstory, a compelling middle and a satisfying ending.
This is a brilliant tactic on the author’s part. Writing a short story that will surely hook readers and compel them to want to read more of her books is an excellent marketing tool. The writing is wonderfully engaging! I’m planning to download more of Barbara Cool Lee’s books!
