The malls are jam-packed with staggering shoppers.There's not a twinkle light anywhere to be seen in her apartment - and there's a strange man in her kitchen. Sure, this has happened to Stephanie Plum before. But this guy is different. He's mysterious, sexy - and has his own agenda. His name is Diesel and he's on a mission. The question is, what does he want with her? Can he help her find a little old toy maker who has skipped out on his bail right before Christmas? Can he survive the Plum family holiday dinner? Can he get Stephanie a tree that doesn't look like it was grown next to a nuclear power plant?These questions, and more, are keeping Stephanie awake at night. Not to mention the fact that she needs to find a bunch of nasty elves, her sister Valerie has a Christmas surprise for the Plums, her niece Mary Alice doesn't believe in Santa anymore, and Granma Mazur has a new stud muffin. So bring out the plastic reindeer, strap your jingle bells, and get ready to celebrate the holidays - Jersey style.
