Aiden's job has taken him out of town again, and the distance is weighing on their new relationship. Anna is feeling a bit lost, Aiden gets a bit philosophical, the holidays are approaching, and the uncertainty of their status as a new couple is hitting them both hard. Their chemistry is unquestionable, but the combination of the demands of Aiden's job, Anna's propensity to find trouble (or the way it seems to find her), Jareth Davy, and interfering outside parties don't make it easy for them.
Anna also lands herself a new client thanks to the hysterical duo of senior ladies Thelma and Georgianna. Santa aka Bernie may have murdered his friend and fellow Santa Lawrence; despite his protestations of innocence, his habit of leaving out pertinent info that makes him look guilty gives Anna fits as she tries to piece together the truth. Of course, Jolene is all about making Anna's life more difficult, so she seizes on every opportunity to harass Anna and plant seeds of doubt in her mind. THEN on top of it all, her stalker is stepping up his game as she anxiously awaits Jareth's next move, and it is becoming clear he and the stalker are one and the same person.
There is a lot of emotional turmoil in this latest installment of the series, but there are plenty of humorous, sexy, and swoony moments too. I love Aiden, and he proves himself worthy of that love over and over again in this story. Of course, no Anna Albertini story would be complete without more family shenanigans, introduction of new extended family members, and some shooting, fights and explosions! This poor woman needs her own personal reserved room at the hospital. The final chapter made my heart happy though, and I am already SO looking forward to what comes next for Aiden and Anna as well as their other family members. There are so many possibilities! And I am REALLY ready for karma to pay a visit to Jolene... but for now, I will just have to stick to re-reading the Albertini/ Devlin goodness we have been graced with so far while I wait for Bosco's book and hope that we see some love devoted to Saber at some point in the future too!

Book 4 of the Anna Albertini files series. Contemporary fiction with mystery and romance. Best read as part of the series.
Anna is defending Santa against murder charges of killing Santa. Try again. Anna is investigating what happened the night of the Santa Club poker game where one of the members ended up with a knife in his back. Bernie, as one of the Santa club members is found holding the knife. Is the drive by shooting the next day aiming for Anna or Santa?
This multilayered story has twists and humor and passion and shopping woes. And plenty of family.
Consider wearing a winter jacket when reading this book. There is a lot of snow. And ice. Lots of treacherous slippery ice in Idaho.
“It was a power heavy red-high-heel day, but the snow kept coming, so I wore thick boots beneath my black pantsuit instead.”
Thrilling, absorbing, and witty.
All the stars. I love reading about Anna, her family, her legal practice that is more investigation than any lawyers I know, and of course, Aiden. The threat of Anna’s old kidnapper resurfacing adds to the sublime tension and anxiety while she is also ticking gifts off her Christmas list.
Don’t miss this newest addition to the series.
“Florence waited inside a wide entryway with a plastic rain bonnet covering her gray hair and tied beneath her chin. Her galoshes were brown, her dress floral, and her makeup powdery.
She craned her neck to see outside. “That’s one handsome man driving that big truck.”
“He’s being bossy,” I said, shaking snow off my wool coat.
“He could boss me around any time.” She tucked her black pocketbook against her hip. “Is he bossy mean or bossy protective?”
I wiped my boots off on the rough rubber mat. “Bossy protective.”
She patted my arm. “Then I’d let it go, unless he sucks in bed. Then I’d ditch him, even though he looks like that. Is he good in bed?”
I made a strangled cat sound and searched wildly for the elevator bank. Well, elevator duo. I guess two elevators didn’t make a bank. “We should get going.”
She slid her free arm through mine and trod carefully across the tiled floor, her galoshes squeaking and leaving a couple chunks of slush behind. “It’s okay not to talk about it, but I can tell he’s good in bed.” She reached out and poked the button for the third floor.
The whisker burn on my thighs silently agreed with her statement.”
Excerpt From Santa's Subpoena by Rebecca Zanetti
Rating: 5 Santa Killed Santa Stars
Steam: 2.5 flames
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Anna Albertini is back, and this time she is defending Santa after he is accused of murdering… well, Santa. Santa's Subpoena is a fast-paced whodunit that will keep you guessing until the very end. Just when you think you've got it figured out... BOOM, another twist that sends you guessing again.
The Albertini Files is a fantastic series filled with loving family, friendship, danger, and mysteries aplenty and Santa’s Subpoena just upped the bar! I mean I have enjoyed the entire series, but the moment I opened the book and saw Thelma and Georgina on page 1, I knew this was going to be one crazy page-turning ride… one that includes more cousins, meddling grandmothers, Christmas shopping, elderly PIs with a penchant for edibles, Anna in more trouble than one person should be able to find, and of course Aiden... our loveable, adorably handsome and very bossy protector. If I wasn’t already in love with Aiden, this book would have solidified his place in my heart.
Did I like this book? No, I LOVED IT! This is my favorite installment in the series. FAVORITE! It was just perfect, everything just worked...and seriously, once I opened the book I couldn’t put it down. This series is a fantastic ride filled with intrigue, laughs and love. Does it get any better than that? A “what are you waiting for, go read this book!” recommendation from me! A 2021 favorite read!
