One of December’s Top Reads
Tammy L. Bailey
At twenty-five, Grace Evans is steadily picking up the pieces of everyone else’s life. So, when her younger sister decides to turn into a runaway bride just four weeks before the wedding, Grace, drops everything to chase after her and bring her back home. Only, when the trail leads to Mistletoe, Washington, she finds herself at the mercy of the town’s most handsome and emotionally unavailable bachelor.
Ex-Army officer, Ayden McCabe, has three creeds in life: never make the first move, never fall in love, and never take anyone to Mistletoe’s Christmas Dance. Wanting nothing more than to keep his matchmaking sister from meddling in his personal life, he agrees to help Grace if she agrees to play his girlfriend. Too brunette and meek for his taste, Ayden believes Grace can’t tempt him enough to break any of his creeds. He could not be more wrong.
Uncaged Review: A very enchanting holiday romance, with sweet storyline. A few weeks before her sister’s wedding, Grace’s sister goes missing. All the information she has, is a postcard from Mistletoe, WA. So being the one in the family that has everything dumped in her lap to fix, Grace leaves San Francisco to go find her sister. She wasn’t prepared for the weather, or for Ayden. Ayden is the owner of the Hearth’s Gate, a BnB he inherited from his parents, but no longer operates. Finding nowhere else to stay, Ayden offers her a room, and he’ll help her find her sister, if she poses as his girlfriend for a week to get his meddlesome sister off his back. Ayden is the town bachelor, and is not one to commit to any woman. Grace, getting a bit desperate to find a place to stay while she looks for her sister, agrees to Ayden’s offer.
This book has some suspense, a great small town with wonderful characters, and the romance brews slowly. The scenery is picturesque for a holiday setting, and characters are developed and likable. A captivating read that readers shouldn’t miss this holiday season. Reviewed by Cyrene
