Author’s note: Because It’s Christmas was originally published in 1998. For many of my backlist books, I revised the stories to be current enough to take place today when I republished them. I did not revise this story because the first book in the trilogy, COP OF THE YEAR, required placement in 1997. Since I kept the original date, cell phones and other technology are also not inserted.
