Summary

Every good Dick needs a sidekick....
Actor Tom Lewis’ world came crashing down when a honey trap and tabloid exposé outed him and put pay to his flourishing career. The housewives' favorite was most well-known for his role as Detective Fox in the quaint British series, Malmesbury Murders. But after the media speculation about his sexuality, the show is in hiatus, and Tom hasn’t worked six months.
Now things are getting serious; money is running out, and Tom needs a job desperately. So when his agent offers him a seasonal acting job, he reluctantly agrees... and takes on the role of Santa for a top London department store. This decision changes Tom’s luck.
When Tom overhears two unidentified store workers discussing a job to get a little Christmas bonus, he realizes the job is of the illegal sort. Now, Tom could call the police, but then again, wouldn’t it be great for his flagging career if Detective Fox saved the day?
So Fox is on the case, and as every good Dick needs a sidekick, Tom decides a sexy young elf named Eli Mason will fit the role, in more ways than one.
Note: This is an M/M romantic comedy with gay sexual content.

Fun Christmas Novella

This is a fun Christmas novella about Tom who's an actor who has taken a gig as Santa at a
department store after having his career put on hold due to a scandal.

Tom meets his Eli who is his elf helper at the store.

This is a funny and clever update on a british mystery, even though this was a funny caper (hence the title) it had some hot sex in it as well. Tom and Eli make a great couple, I can't wait to see what happens next with them and hopefully solving a few more mysteries along the way.

As usual Gary Furlong did a great job narrating.

Great Christmas story

The characters of Det Fox (Tom Lewis) and Eli Elf (Eli Mason) are lovable. they work together and the mystery just adds to the suspense. Great steaming chemistry between the couple. Can't wait to see what the future holds for this couple. Gary did a great job narrating. Given a copy for an honest review.

Terrific narration

Honestly, how have I not listened to something narrated by Gary Furlong before? This audio was fantastic!

The story is well described by the blurb. Told in multiple POV, the plot requires some suspension of disbelief, but this is a fun, quirky Christmas mystery. While it may not be super plausible, it’s lighthearted and amusing, and well-polished by Furlong's narration.

There's an obvious love of the location (I just visited London for the first time and this brought me back in my memories), some kink if you're into it, a lot of humor and shenanigans - and Furlong pitches his performance to easily cover all the nuances of the story.

It's the first in a new series and ends with a strong HFN and the possibility for the main characters Tom and Eli to develop their relationship more fully as the series progresses.

Gary Furlong provides exceptional narration with a great use of character voices and accents, and terrific timing and pacing. He performs this story like an old radio show, and it's just purely entertaining to listen to.

I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more audios from Gary Furlong in the future.

ho ho ho in the top drawer....

SO do not listen to this openly if there are others around, I knew there would be some adult scenes but didnt realize it was that graphic haha. Typical falling in love trope but the other twists keep it interesting and the feel was very detailed, as if the writer knew the process of auditioning.
