Hot Toy by Jennifer Crusie

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Short and sweet, Hot Toy is perfect for filling in time between holiday baking sessions and errands, The thing with Hot Toy is that it is really short. It's a novella that appeared in 2006's Santa Baby anthology. I read it in half an hour.

Trudy is determined to get the hot toy of the season for her nephew, especially knowing his lousy father promised the boy and then put no effort into finding one. Not only is this toy turning out to be impossible to find, but Trudy's former date, a man who never called her again, shows up seeking the exact same toy. Miracles do occur and with some determined searching, Trudy finds one toy left, but that leads to more chaos than she could ever imagine. Chaos that threatens to put her in the middle of a major investigation.

Jennifer Crusie's story contains plenty of humor, sparks of romance, and lots of fun. It's just so short that it seemed over and done before it really ever began. I ended up wishing I could have more time with Trudy, her family, and Logan.
