Book Review - Jingle Bell Harbor by Tracy Brogan

ABOUT THE BOOK

As assistant buyer for the world’s second-largest Christmas store, Kelsey Parker feels like a holiday harlot. She’s contractually obligated to promote the yuletide season. All. Year. Long. And it’s taking a toll on her spirit. But when her clueless, self-absorbed boyfriend goes on their long-anticipated romantic vacation—without her!—Kelsey is beyond disappointed to find herself tromping through the Bell Harbor snow instead of lounging on a tropical beach.

Drew Hampton is considered quite a catch among the Bell Harbor bachelorettes, but when his high school dream girl, Kelsey Parker, shows up at his grandfather’s Christmas tree lot complaining about her love life, he decides it’s long past time to get her under the mistletoe himself.

As things heat up between the two, a surprise visitor arrives, making Kelsey an offer she can’t quite believe. Now she must decide what matters most, and she just may discover the key to her happiness.

 

REVIEW

Kelsey and Drew were such fun characters!   The story was so much fun to read and I really enjoyed the banter bewteen Drew and Kelsey.  Both characters were easy to like and root for… except for one thing.  Kelsey was still technically dating someone else.  This story would have been perfect if she hadn’t been technically cheating on someone else.  I couldn’t ever really get past that one point.  I also found the end a little abrupt.  I always enjoy Tracy Brogan’s books, and I think if this had been a longer story some of the things that bothered me would have worked out on their own, but due to the short nature of the story it rushed everything else along.

OVERALL RATING - 4 STARS!

MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
