She’ll save Christmas just to spite him…
There’s only one thing standing in the way of Cat King saving a small town’s Christmas festival: Grumpy town manager Noah Yates.
Single dad Noah takes his responsibilities seriously. When a late season hurricane turns Merry, Connecticut, into a disaster, he’s left scrambling to pick up the pieces of the town he loves.
At least, until home renovation expert and smoking hot reality TV star Catalina King arrives with a camera crew and a budget big enough to put the town back together again. But Noah doesn’t want a celebrity diva capitalizing on their tragedyorfilling his daughter’s head with visions of glitz and glam.
Blonde bombshell Cat is used to being underestimated, but Noah has an uncanny knack for getting under her skin. They can’t be in a room together without rubbing each other the wrong way…except that time in the dark alley where the rubbing was just right. Can these enemies work together to pull off a Christmas miracle or will their fighting leave them both on the naughty list?
I can't think of anyone who does grumpy/sunshine better than Lucy Score. I loved Cat from Mr. Fixer Upper, and it was so much fun to read her bulldoze her way to get what she wants. And she drags Noah into her shenanigans kicking and screaming, which is so good for him. This was my first Christmas read of the season and the perfect story to get me in the spirit!
