Book Tour/Excerpt: Locking Up Santa by Nikki LeClair @hellochicklit @NikkiL_Books

Locking Up Santa Book TourBy author Nikki LeClair

Tour Dates: November 8th – 15th, 2016


It’s the Christmas season, and seven months since Phoebe Mercer’s life dramatically changed. She went from being an overworked legal assistant, to a CEO of a popular beauty company. She moved from the bustling big city, to a quaint seaside town. She’s gone from living with a fiancé, to living with a ghost. Yet, it seems she can’t get a grip on her new life, whether it’s getting used to being a public figure, having a Chief Operating Official who hates her, or a ghost who is just too passionate. As if things can’t get any worse, Phoebe’s friend and mentor is arrest for a horrible crime many think they were capable of committing. Except for Phoebe, and her ghost. As Phoebe races to prove her mentors innocence, and stop the company from sinking, she must deal with a face from her past that throws her in a disarray of emotion, an unwanted visitor, and old friends who seem to have abandoned her.


I pull my eyes from the screen and run a hand through my perfectly styled hair.

​I have to focus on something other than the nipping dread that has suddenly popped up within me. I feel like I’m sitting on a chair of thorns.  

​“Fantastic job Phoebe.” Paul gives me a thumbs up as his hair people return to comb through his puffy hair. “You look great!”

​I give him a meek smile and look at Sharon, whose just been handed a new pile of cue-cards. She side eyes me as she reads the first one and I frown.

​“What are those?”

​“Source cards.” She doesn’t look at me as she answers. I catch the nervous expression Paul eludes and realize what she read earlier on those cards must have been the information she just threw at me.

​“Who told you that we weren’t cooperating with the police?” I ask her.

​I know I shouldn’t ask, I get the feeling I’m awakening the Kraken if I make her mad but I need to know how she knew this.

​“I won’t reveal my sources to you.” Sharon laughs as she moves onto the next cue-card. “And I’d save that gusto my dear; you’ll need it when we return from commercial break.”

​Paul snaps under his breath. “For Christ’s sake, Sharon.”

​I sigh in defeat. “So you plan to harass me when the cameras roll again, is that right?”

​“No! There won’t be any harassment.” Paul points his finger at me then he elbows Sharon harshly. “Right, Sharon?”

​She shrugs and moves on to cue-card number three as the woman doing her makeup starts running a brush along her shiny forehead. 

​She’s going to bombard me with whatever else is on those cards. I’m going to look like such an idiot, if I don’t already. If she makes me angry then I’ll say something rash, I know it.

This is a tacky talk show, watched by stay at home moms and bored housewives. This isn’t Crime Report! This isn’t CNN! This is one step up from the home shopping network!
