Publisher's Summary

Very little is merry in a private dick’s world.

Private detective Nick Bozic works the mean streets of 1950s Portland, Oregon, shadowing unfaithful spouses and nabbing thieving employees. He may be lonely, but at least he’s not crooked. Despite the festive season, Christmas simply means less dough in his pocket.

With the holiday only a few days away, a regular client drops a new case on him: Yet another being has come through the Rift and needs help finding his way home. Maybe Evindal the elf will help Nick find something, too - a bit of cheer and magic amid the usual brew of corruption and betrayal.

A VERY CLEVER GENRE!!

I don't know which I enjoyed more, the salute to noir detective stories (I am a fan!!), or the challenge of identifying the literary characters that came through the rift. Thanks to both author and narrator for this holiday treat.

delightful 😁 👍👍

📖 Story comment: entertaining story, likeable characters, good pace.
I was thoroughly entertained by "A Very Genre Christmas", Evindal's delight at everything was infections and I found myself grinning along with him.

This story has a bit of a "Torchwood" feel with the Rift sending "beings" through for Nick to help send back where they came from - As a Torchwood fan, I really hope this concept is turned into a series because it has so many possibilities.

🎧 Narrator comment: Greg Tremblay is a master performer - he captured the feel of the period, the characters and all the emotions perfectly and had me drawn into the story from the opening sentence, Nick was the perfect gruff detective who only sees the bad, Evindal was the bright spark of sunshine every Christmas Elf should be. An enjoyable performance and he's bought this story to life.

Romantic noir with a festive fantasy twist!

In the vein of Sam Spade, hard-bitten PI Nick Bozic does the usual grubby, thankless work in 1950s Portland, OR. Occasionally a magical person comes through the Rift from another world and Nick is hired to help find the way to get the person home. When Evindal, a Christmas elf, comes through, even Nick’s tough heart is charmed by his cuteness and sunny disposition. Nick’s personality and dangerous case ensured this Christmas novella avoided being overly cutesy while still being a heartwarming romance. Living in a time when being gay was a criminal offence was also sobering and poignant. Audio narrator Greg Tremblay / Boudreaux was the perfect choice for this, his tough, clipped tone for Nick and softer, fluty voice for Evindal hit exactly the right notes. All in all, a lovely festive m/m romance!
