How to Ruin the Holidays by Becky Monson


After a disastrous family Thanksgiving, all I wanted was to avoid anything holly and jolly this year, so an unexpected business trip seemed like the perfect escape plan . . . until I landed smack dab in the middle of a freaking winter wonderland, otherwise known as Carole Cove, Montana. It’s merrier and brighter than the North Pole. The town even comes with its own Mr. Holiday—Noel Holiday, that is. Not only is he holly and jolly but he’s hotter than the lattes he sells at his café. And for some reason he would love nothing more than to share the magic of the season with me.

Unfortunately, this little trip of mine isn’t exactly filled with good cheer. But Noel’s kisses have a way of making me believe in Christmas miracles. And a miracle might be exactly what it takes to keep the holidays from being ruined forever.

Hello, Mara!!  and YAY!  I've been waiting to read Mara's story after getting a glimpse of her in Jennifer Peel's story, The Holiday Ex Files.  I mean, what's not to like?  She adds her horrible sister in laws email to spam lists, she rage crochets and wears the Heathen Steven scarf.  😂  Mara also has a kind heart.  She is aware of other people and does her best to help and show kindness to them.  I really loved that about her.  Plus, did I mention she crochets ugly scarves for people she is mad at?  hahaha  Can you visualize that?  That just makes me laugh.

I think Noel is the bomb.  The kissing was yummy and I honestly loved Noel's even temperament.  He never got too riled or flew off the handle.  He always treated Mara with respect and courtesy when he wasn't kissing her senseless.  The love he had for his town and all the ways he took care of people was awesome too.   Yeah, Noah is a Hallmark kind of hero.  But better.  Because more kissing, people.  

This was such a feel good Christmas story.  It has humor and if you know me, I love to be entertained while reading.  I literally smiled my way through this one from beginning to end.  I lovey loved it.

This book is on KU if you have that!  Happy reading!
