Comments Cowabunga Christmas

  • Della

    a fun cozy mystery, highly enjoyable. The leads are on their honeymoon. One they wanted to be memorable. They did. But not the way they expected. As is my custom, I read straight threw. If its a really good and interesting book I go back and read more slowly to savor the read. This is such a book. My sister surprised me with this read. This time I am glad she did. Plan to get more as soon as I can.

  • Susanne Leist

    I love cozy mysteries. Some snow and a burning fire can make it perfect. In this case, we have Christmas Eve in California at a 5-star hotel. Swimming, surfing, sunshine, beaches. What can possibly go wrong? A bullet-riddled Santa found by newlyweds Kim and Brien. They don't even know which Santa is missing. How to find the murderer and still salvage the holiday? Kim and Brien work hard with the detective in charge to save Christmas and the Christmas spirit. Fun for all ages.

  • Kristine (A Cozy Booknook)

    This is an entertaining mystery that kept me guessing until the final reveal. The characters are spunky, a bit sarcastic, and likable. I couldn’t help feel as though I was missing something in the story. I look forward to reading more from this author

  • JoAn

    Cowabunga Christmas by Anna Celeste Burker was a cute and easy to read cozy mystery. I believe that newlyweds are secondary characters in Ms. Burke's Jessica Huntington series which I haven't read. This left me feeling a little left out since I didn't know their backstory before their honeymoon. That being said, this is a quickly paced plot that kept me interested and I was surprised at the reveal as to who was involved in the murder and mayhem. I am looking forward to reading more about their a [...]

  • Debbie

    I am having a hard time rating this one.I actually would give this a 3 1/2 star. I really enjoyed some parts of this book and there were parts that bothered me. Kim and Brien are on their honeymoon, we are introduced a little but I get the feeling that they are secondary characters from another series. Kim comes across as street smart and cautious with people, Brien we are told is a surfer dude and may not seem intelligent but actually is, there lies my problem because Kim seems to talk down to [...]

  • Christoph Fischer

    "Cowabunga Christmas" by Anna Celeste Burke is a wonderful cosy mystery. I love that the new series is so distinctly different from the previous one, even though there are links to the old one via the characters. The new protagonists have a different approach to their hobby investigation that steps in where the detective falls short.This has a wonderful exotic location - I would love to spend my honeymoon or xmas in a place like Corsario's Cave - only minus the criminals of course.Burke's writin [...]

  • Emily Stanton Wolfpack

    This was a great book to get me in the holiday mood--Ms. Burke continues to entertain with Kim and Brien, familiar characters from her Desert Mystery series, a newlywed couple that finds themselves in the middle of a murder investigation at a five-star resort hotel. I loved the mixture of lighthearted humor along with the dark mystery, and the constant string of Santas with questionable morals. Readers will love Burke's style and delight in the many twists and turns she creates in this hilarious [...]

    Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.4 stars I really [...]

  • Anna Burke

    Cowabunga, Baby--hope you enjoy this first adventure in Corsario Cove as Kim and Brien start their new lives as a married couple. A helluva honeymoon--one they're sure to remember! Happy Reading

  • Jay Williams

    This is a wonderful story about a honeymoon at a fancy hotel in Corsario Cove. Kim and Brian barely miss being hit by a falling dead Santa, and that kicks off a great story with colorful characters, romance, surfing, and suspense. Based on how the story ends, there’s more to come. The writing is simple, clear and spiced with surfer speak and malapropisms as Brian enlarges his vocabulary. A fun and entertaining read for any time of the year.

  • Monica

    I received a free copy of this book by the author. First time reading this author. I think this is well written and I liked the characters. Brien I really liked. He was sweet and smart and honestly people take that for granted even his wife at a little if I am honest. He's a surfer dude and most think they are stupid and he's anything but dumb. Kim is pretty cool too but they are opposites in a lot of ways but that obviously attracts. Now, one issue I did have was that this seems to be part of s [...]

  • Cheryl

    This is my first in the series. The main characters are Kim and her new husband Brien. They are on their honeymoon and end up in the middle of a murder. The Detective at first likes them for it but then with some help from them comes close to getting all involved. It was a different kind of story but I loved it.

  • Kerry Williams

    I really enjoyed this read. It was a mystery with a light hearted feel to it. I enjoyed Kim and Brien's newlywed relationship they had. I just was lost with the surfer terms, and it sometimes took me a couple of times to understand what was being said. Of course I had to take in consideration that I am from Texas and we don't get to surf too much here. I would recommend the story, and I will read the rest in the series because it was a short read for me and I did actually like the story itself. [...]

  • Darcysmom

    Cowabunga Christmas was a fun, action packed cozy mystery. Kim and Brien are on their honeymoon at an exclusive seaside resort when they narrowly miss swimming with a dead Santa. If they want to enjoy their Christmas honeymoon, they need to figure out who killed Santa and why.Other than a heavy-handed use of "surfer speak", Cowabunga Christmas was a satisfying story.

  • Ashley Martinez

    Cozy MysteryMurder, mystery and an entertaining time. It was more of a light hearted mystery than a crime novel. There was a lot of back and forth jokes and such between the characters. I don’t know why I just couldn’t get into this story though. I did like the mystery but I couldn’t really connect with the characters.

  • Trudy Gleason

    Cute book - looking forward to reading more of her books.

    I found this book rather boring. The characters didn't engage me and the mystery wasn't interesting.
