After choir practisc for midnight mass, college sophomore Rose Grandon takes a short-cut through Harbor Park. Grabbed from behind, she is violently assaulted, beaten and left for dead.

The last thing she hears is a tenor voice singing Silent Night.

Several hours later, the police find Rose lying in a ditch. Badly beaten — but alive.

As she recovers in hospital, Rose is told she’s pregnant. She has a terrible choice to make. She decides to keep the baby.

Nine months later, she gives birth to a beautiful baby girl. She names her Mary.

Rose lives quietly in her small Connecticut hometown raising her daughter — the one good thing to come out of her horrible ordeal. She begins to get her old self back.

But her evil attacker has never been caught. He strikes twice a year. Once on Christmas Eve, once on Christmas Day.

And until he’s behind bars, Rose and her baby can never be safe.

But now he’s found out he has a daughter. And that changes everything . . .

My Thoughts

“Twice On Christmas,” tells a captivating story of a young girl named Rose, who becomes the target of a notorious serial killer, the Kringle Killer. The author does an amazing job of bringing Rose’s trauma and horror to life, and you can really feel the impact it has on her life.

The plot is full of twists and turns that keep you engaged from start to finish, and the attention to detail is impressive. You really get to know the characters and feel like you’re a part of the story.

Overall, it’s a gripping novel that explores the psyche of a victim of a brutal crime, and it’s definitely a book that will stick with you long after you’ve turned the final page. A must-read!

Thank you to NetGalley and Joffe Books for allowing me to read and review this book.
