It’s been a while since I spent time in Bell Harbor, and I have fond memories of my previous visits. Tracy Brogan always delivers a humorous and heart-warming romance between her couples and Kelsey and Drew’s, Christmas coming together was certainly no exception.
Add in the numerous recurring characters, from the previous books in the series, and a little Christmas Jungle, and this was a really entertaining and enjoyable novella.
Then when she arrives she runs into an old high-school friend who shows her what a partner should be.

Kelsey's love life is not so loving and her job has made her lose her Christmas spirit. Coming home to Bell Harbor to care for her grandmother might be just what she needs, even if she doesn't know it. Drew is a dreamy home town boy, thoughtful and oh, so attracted to Kelsey. I really liked these two. I could feel the pull between them, and they felt real. I liked the unexpected, fun way they are ...more

I enjoyed this book through and through! I absolutely love how humorous it is. Every chapter had a part that would have me actually laugh out loud which is rare from books now a days. It was so refreshing!! I also liked how it had dual pov. The only thing wrong with it is that it wasn't long enough. I wish the ending would have been a little more in depth or longer either one. 4/5 stars! Everyone should read!
This book was great, it really was except… Well I understand that Kelsey's relationship with her boyfriend isn’t what it should be (after all he went on vacation without her when her grandmother broke her hip – that’s bad), but I didn’t care for the way she and Drew got together. I know it added to the conflict, but I wasn’t comfortable ...more
*A small spoiler ahead: It was okay, it had potential, but I really didn't like that she slept with Drew before she broke up with Blake. I get that she and Blake didn't really love each other and he didn't treat her right, but that doesn't excuse the fact she slept with someone else while dating another. I loved her grandma!
Since I've read the other books in this series, I thought I'd give this one a try! The author's amusing sense of humor was back which made me happy. All in all, it was a sweet, light, romantic read perfect for the busy holiday season.
