About the book:

It’s Christmas time in Bigtime, New York, but society reporter Carmen Cole isn’t in the mood to celebrate since her husband, Sam, has to go on a business trip and might not make it home for the holiday. But Carmen has plenty to keep her busy, since she moonlights as Karma Girl, a member of the Fearless Five superhero team. 

>On Christmas Eve, Carmen, as Karma Girl, is assigned to guard toys, clothes, food, and more that are intended for needy children and their families. But an ubervillain also has his eye on the toys and plans to steal and then sell them to the highest bidder. Carmen will have to use all her empathic powers just to stay alive, not to mention make sure Christmas is a happy one for all the kids who are counting on her. It’s all in a night’s work for a superhero …

Note: This is a 14,000-word story that takes place after the events of Jinx, the third book in the Bigtime series. It can also be read as a stand-alone holiday story.

What G & U are talking about:

A Karma Girl Christmas is a short story, as stated on the author’s website, from the Bigtime series.  Gikany and Una have not read this series, but it did not detract from the book at all.  It can definitely be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone story.

This delightfully short and sweet story is a wonderful light-hearted read.  We enjoyed the characters and the fun little world that Ms. Estep has created.  It feels a little like Gotham but without all the dark fog and brooding people.  Karma Girl, for a superhero, feels so much like the girl next-door and the characters are quite charming in their own unique way.  Reading this short story was simply a fun little romp.

Feel free to download A Karma Girl Christmas to read after you’ve set the tree up, and are looking to relax.  We suggest enjoying it in front of a fire with a steaming cup of tea (Una’s preference) or cocoa. At only $0.99, how can you go wrong?

Their Rating:
Enjoyed – strongly recommend (A-)
