Sabotaged Christmas by Carole Brown

Sabotaged Christmas (An Appleton, WV Romantic Mystery, #1)Book Description:
Toni DeLuca, the Italian owner of DeLuca Construction, finds herself confronted with doubts about her father and his possible deceptions—all because of the mysterious pink notes she’s been receiving. 

Relations with Perrin Douglas who has a troubled history—but the first man in years who’s interested her—is building to a peak. Yet Perrin‘s own personal problems and his doubts about women and God, keep getting in the way. 

Gossip, a Spanish proposal, an inheritance, and a sabotaged construction business may ruin Christmas for Toni’s employees as well as her own happiness.
Will a mysterious person succeed in pulling off the biggest scam Appleton, West Virginia has ever seen? And will this culprit destroy Toni's last chance at happiness with the man of her dreams?

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book.  Toni owns her late father's construction business. Strange and unsettling things start happening from threatening letters to missing supplies on job sites.  Perrin is new to town and hires Toni's business to work on his place.
I really enjoyed the characters the author created here. They were flawed, and I appreciated that. I dislike 'perfect' characters who have an easy time of it. Perrin's son is probably my favorite character. I love his personality.  
It was a 4/5 for me. I will absolutely be reading more from this author.

Thank you to the author (via Celebrate Lit) for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
