Cloying and not really about Christmas
Shelton gives good coverage to Christmas in New Mexico, and specifically in Albuquerque. But the plot itself has little to do with the holidays at all; the story could take place anytime of the year. That does detract.
The tale is told in a cloying way and sounds aimed at lower intelligence readers; it is a simplistic tale about neighborhood quirks and quirky characters. Does not have the feel of an experienced author.
The book spends most of the story covering family problems of a few families, and there is not even any crime committed until later in the book. Ending is forced. Yawn.
