Back Cover Blurb:

Going home for Christmas this winter just might turn Drew Cannon into a real Grinch. When his college sweetheart, Lauren Kincaid, broke off their engagement a year ago, Drew retreated to Tokyo to run the Asia-Pacific division of the family’s toy company and lick his wounds. If that weren’t enough, his attempt at a high-profile holiday doll for the company was a bust. Now he’s headed back to New York City to spend the holidays with his lovestruck dad, his pissed-off twin brother, and the ex who broke his heart.

Lauren isn’t exactly keen to spend Christmas with her former flame, either. But as JDL Toys’s marketing director, she’s forced to deal with their doll problem, holiday or not. Things take a turn for the worse when she and Drew are tasked with planning surprise nuptials for his brother.

With all their focus on happily ever after, Lauren and Drew soon discover things might not be so settled between them after all. Can a holiday wedding offer them a second chance at forever?

My Review:

This novel had the most absolutely ridiculous premise ever. At the same time, she made everything completely believable and utterly unforgettable. I absolutely loved it! I devoured this one in a single sitting. I couldn’t stop laughing throughout. At the same time, Neeley also made me cry, once for sadness, and once, for a perfectly happy ending. Her vivid descriptions bring this Christmas town to life, allowing readers to enter the story as participants rather than simply spectators.

The characters in this novel were fantastic. The creative manner in which Neeley developed them, both who they are today and the events that made them those people, captured my attention. I felt like I really and truly got to know and understand them as individuals. The intrinsic elements that make them who they are also made this story what it was. Surrounded by this fantastic and well developed supporting cast of friends and family, I felt like I was part of this extended family.

This was definitely a fantastic comedic romance that will put anyone into the spirit of Christmas. I’d highly recommend it to one and all. I’m also counting down the days until Christmas next year when I’ll be reading it again.
