For those of you who haven’t seen the 1994 bittersweet Christmas comedy The Ref starring Denis Leary, Judy Davis and Kevin Spacey, I recommend you rent it immediately. Prepare to spend a couple of hours laughing and crying at what is sure to become one of your favorite Christmas movies.
In the movie, Denis Leary plays an unfortunate cat burglar, who is abandoned by his partner in the middle of a heist, and is forced to take an irritating Connecticut couple (Kevin Spacey, Judy Davis) hostage. He soon finds that he took more than he bargained for when the couple’s blackmailing son and despicable in-laws step into the picture. Before long they’re driving him nuts with their petty bickering and family problems. The only way for him to survive is to be their referee and resolve their differences, before he can be nabbed by the police.
My novella, The Re-er-ee is part of Love Christmas 2, twenty-six, all-new, exclusive to this set, novellas which are titled after popular holiday movies written by NYT & USAT, best-selling authors.
In my novella, The Re-er-ee, a take on the hilarious Christmas comedy, The Ref, Christmas had become such a chore for the dysfunctional Starr Family that their Christmas tree was drying in a corner in the garage– on Christmas Eve, no less. But with the unintended help of an accomplished young thief and conman, the family rediscovers the love and happiness they’d allowed to seep out of their lives. In the process they save the life of an abused kid and celebrate their best Christmas ever.

In the five years that she has been writing, Taylor has written more than forty books. Her eight, series track her Special Operatives, Covert Agents, Cops, Firefighters and other iconic heroes and heroines, through the harrowing situations that make up their lives. From human trafficking rings to corrupt politicians, Taylor investigates the underbelly of society and the criminals who flourish there.
Taylor says: “From the residue in my personal blender of mixed races, cultures and world views, my characters emerge. It comforts me to know that while evil slinks in the shadows, the “good guys and gals” of the world sniff it out – and snuff it out.
My characters are arrogant alpha males and the feisty women who bring them to their knees – and vice versa… They fight hard, love hard and don’t mince words. They are dangerous men and women in dangerous times. Love, passion and ridding the world of evil? What’s not to like?
