In Done By Christmas by Randall Jarmon, Victor Taggert has made over 200 deaths happen, but it was not until recently that his crimes came to light. The prosecution will do everything they can to ensure that Victor spends his life in jail, but Victor has another plan. His plan is to be out of prison in ten months. True to his word, Victor escapes and now plots another murder; the victim this time is Abigail West. Abigail runs the Abigail West Security Services with her husband, Marcus, and had unknowingly helped in exposing Victor’s crimes. Marcus suspects that Victor will target his wife once he gets out, so he devised The Plan to ensure his family’s happiness and to thwart Victor’s schemes. Part of the plan is to find his daughter, Amanda, a husband and find another person whom he can make his protégé.
Done by Christmas is a fast paced and action packed novel by Randall Jarmon. Every chapter is full of unexpected twists and surprises. This is the first suspense novel I have read with Christian characters and it was very nice. I liked how the characters turn to God for every little thing that happens in their lives. I was a little disappointed towards the end of the book when I learned of Marcus’ plan, but truly there are miracles because it ended differently from how Marcus pictured it. The finale was amazing and the last chapters made me happy while reading. The characters are diverse and unique. Logan was funny, especially during his interviews and when he was starting at AWSS. Marcus and Abigail’s dynamics were also amusing and dreamy. Victor is the antagonist, but his intellect is outstanding; it was just sad that he liked his ways too much to change. The book is very engaging and, overall, deserves a 5-star rating.
