REVIEW:
A quick read!
And a fun whodunit!
Amelia always gets the most interesting cases, that take her all over the world. I was actually surprised that her and Rick didn't go to Germany in this book, but still, they traveled. I liked that the good guys were also bad guys in this one too. Most clean reads don't go there, so I was pleasantly surprised.
I was trying to guess who stole the doll and why, and turned out wrong. I like that though, I didn't see it coming, or rather, get the notion, while reading. I did feel the end a little rushed through. Almost like the resolution came from nowhere and was wrapped up just as fast. Still, there was enough mystery and intrigue that I really enjoyed this story. At least as much as the others in this series.
What a fun series this is. I like watching Amelia and Rick figure out cases while figuring out each other. Makes for great reading. I look forward to reading, Her Lost Love.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
