An Untouchable Christmas is a holiday novella and the follow-up to author Cindy Skaggs' Untouchable, both belonging to her Untouchables romantic suspense series from Entangled Publishing's Ignite imprint. Sofia Capri is moving forward with her life with her boyfriend, FBI agent Logan Stone, and her son, Eli, by her side, or at least she's trying to. It isn't easy to totally let go of old habits that now come all too naturally even though she knows her former husband is gone. She wants to be able to be normal and normal means welcoming Logan's family and friends to their home and celebrating the holidays together. But when Eli, along with Logan's nieces, goes missing once again, all their plans go awry. Is hoping for normal too much to ask or could it cost Sofia both Eli and Logan?
I enjoyed the first Sofia and Logan's story in Untouchable, so I was looking forward to this Christmas follow-up, and it so exceeded my expectations. Everything Sofia went through under her late husband's thumb isn't the type of thing that can be forgotten or so easily swept under the rug, and I'm glad that the author chose to address it here. What Sofia and Logan share is real, but it's also somewhat new, so I liked that they were forced to take stock of what they had together and if a becoming a family--Logan, Sofia, and Eli--was something that the adults wanted. I liked Logan's family and friends and I'm even more curious now about Vicki Calvetti, Sofia's former sister-in-law, and how Blake Reilly, Logan's best friend and a cop, knows her. An Untouchable Christmas gets five out of five stars. ♥
