When Fallon McQueen arrives home and finds Santa Claus cuffing a man in front of her house she just knows things are going to get interesting. And when Santa sheds his suit, what is underneath is DEFINETLY interesting.

Jack Cooper is tired of the big city and being a cop. He's retired and plans on not having a plan. When he stops a deadbeat from breaking and entering, he's just doing one last good deed before he heads into the sunset.

I really liked Jack I thought he was a good guy, very attentive, “maybe wecould be late because of me.” Jack palmed her **. “Don‟ t worry, I‟ ll calm her down. If we‟ re late to the jerk‟ s wedding, we‟ re late. Take your time.” He closed the door." I liked this book, Jack knew how to get into the Christmas spirit.

How do you find a date to an ex's wedding? Apparently not through speed dating! Fallon made a mistake to get her mother off her back. She told her she was in a relationship with a tall, dark man named Bud so she couldn't be set up with anyone again. But she couldn't find anyone to play Bud until an ex-cop apprehends a burglar trying to break into her apartment.

Jack was a homicide detective until he caught the kind of case that haunts you, one involving a kid. He can't get past it so he turned i

What's a gal to do when she has to go to the wedding of her ex? How about when Mom thinks she has a boyfriend and she doesn't? How about taking a fake one?!?! This tale is a fun loving story about just this situation. Fallon finds a good looking guy who is almost too good to be true, but he is and they embark on a journey into some unexpected situations and emotions.
Fun story, enjoyable and well written with understandable, real characters. Two thumbs up, Heatherly Bell, for another thoroughly e

What a wonderful story! I must say this had all the elements of a book that I love: humor, romance, family and of course sexy characters that you just can’t help but fall in love with. The book is well written and just a delight to read. Add in the fact the story takes place at Christmas time, in a small town, and our heroine is the underdog who is in need of something good to happen in her life, you just can’t help but smile as you read her story! 2 thumbs up for a Great holiday read!

I loved this book. This is only the second book I've read of Heatherly Bell's and I'm so looking forward to reading her other books. This is a nice relaxed read.

Fallon needs to find a date, to take to her ex-husband Ted's wedding, but she hasn't been able to find a suitable date, at any of the the speed dating events she's been going to for the past two weeks. This is pathetic, as far as she's concerned. Surely there must be a suitable man who meets her specifications. If she hadn't told her mot

I loved reading Fallon and Jack’s story. I have enjoyed all of the Starlight Hill stories and Heatherly Bell’s writing keeps getting better and better. This one hits on all fronts – it is sexy, funny and sweet.

Three times divorced, both friends and family have made Fallon feel like a failure. After spending the last two years in LA improving herself and saving up money, she is on her way back to Starlight Hill for Christmas and to attend her ex-husband’s (and father of her son) wedding. The only

This festive story made my heart feel fuzzy. I loved Fallon. She wants so badly to prove to everyone that she can do this, maybe even prove to herself. Fallon takes a beautiful journey with Jack learning who she is and who she wants to be might just be the same thing.

The premise of the novel is that Fallon and Jack team up to allow Fallon to save face in front of her family at a wedding. Usually the way these stories start can be a little unrealistic – but one of the things I loved about Crazy F

Crazy for You was an absolutely adorable holiday romance. I went into it thinking that this book was only a novella, but this book was actually more developed than that and I'm thankful for that because it gave me more time to really connect with these characters and their story. And talking about the characters I really liked Jack. This guy really should be nominated for sainthood with how good he was. Like he was almost too good of a person that I kind of kept waiting for the other shoe to dro ...more

Sarah Reads "Reading in Sarah's Corner"
This was a cute fun quick read. Heatherly Bell sweeps her readers off into a fun little Christmas read that reminded me a lot of a Hallmark movie. Actually, I would love to see this as a fun Hallmark movie.

When Jack Cooper and Fallon McQueen meet, he is saving her from a break-in. Jack's alpha dominance radiates off of him and Fallon cannot help but notice. The two strike up a deal that benefits them both and the reader is swept off into the fun little story.

They met under strange circumstances,;he fit the bill of tall dark and handsome, and due to his own particular circumstances, was free to play along in a charade, to save face for her, in her small home town.
Neither thought this pretend romance would go anywhere, and so they moved with the flow.
I won't spoil the ending.
I loved this story, and believe if you are looking for a love story, with a Christmas background, then you will enjoy this book.

3.5* read.

A sweet story which was well wrote out to. For my own personal taste it was to sweet for me and I needed a bit more more that's my own personal preference, nothing to do with this authors writing.

This is Fallon and Jacks story. At first Fallon really annoyed me and I felt like she needed t get a backbone and stand up for herself more, but I did warm up to her eventually. As for Jack he just seemed a bit lacking in the personality department but together I really enjoyed their banter.

Super cute holiday read. Poor Fallon has found herself dateless for the holidays after she told her Mom she met a new man during a speed dating event. Since she doesn't want to face the small town gossips man less she asks the cop (dressed as Santa) who just arrested a man breaking into her house. Heatherly Bell writes a sweet & sexy love story that is super fun to read. Her characters are adorable (especially Jack's son David) & you can't help but root for a happy ending.

Fallen was always talked about. So when time comes to go back home she needs help. She enlists the help of Jack, not knowing that feelings can develop from pretend.
This is a very cute short.

Fun read

I love Fallon. She is always believing the worst of herself. Until she meets Jack. Jack has no plans. He is sexy, smart and a white night complex. He also is traveling with Fallon as her pretend boyfriend to her ex's wedding. Fun along the way and it doesn't slow down in her home town. He is so good for her in many ways.

This is My 1st book from Heatherly Bell and I loved it. This is a fun & quick read that takes place in a small town, during the Christmas season. Those are some of My Favorite parts about this book. So if you enjoy small town romance HEA books I'd recommend this novella. I would really enjoy reading more of Heatherly's work. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and reviewed it.

As always Ms Bell has written an amazing story. Jack swears he's done with being a cop. Fallon is jobless and desperately needs a boyfriend. Their adventures cracked me up and the chemistry was HOT!

Quirkily sassy romance with a twist or two.
I was hooked at the lead male being called Jack and could not put this one down.
Family issues, self and small town perceptions intermingle with the festive season and wedding just for kicks.
A most enjoyable read.

Fallon is from Starlight Hill, who was just fired from her job as a posh hairdresser in California. Jack is a burned out homicide policeman who has quit his job to find something that will be less emotional.

Fallon McQueen is a divorced mom with a 9 year old. Her ex is getting married in their small hometown and she’s told her mom, she’ll be bringing a ‘date’ so mom won’t fix her up with someone. UGH…moms…just stop doing that please! The only problem is…Fallon doesn’t have a date!

Jack Cooper is a retired police officer, filling in as Santa, so dressed as such, when he goes all Santa ‘superhero’ and apprehends a burglar trying to break in to Fallon’s house. Fallon comes home as this is all happening
