About the Book:
Camry MacKeage has absolutely no intention of telling her parents that she left her job as a NASA physicist for the small-town life of a dog-sitter — which is why she’s spending the holidays alone in coastal Maine with her furry friends Tigger and Max. Unfortunately, her irresistibly handsome rival, scientist Luke Pascal, accidentally spilled the beans. Now he’s on a mission from her mother to tempt Camry home for the family’s annual winter solstice celebration. But Luke is hiding his own secret, and he’ll need a little bit of magic to earn Camry’s trust…and a whole lot of mistletoe to seduce his way into her heart.


About the Author:
A native of rural central Maine, Janet Chapman lives there in a cozy log cabin on a lake with her husband. Three cats and a stray young bull moose keep them company. The author of the hugely popular Highlander time-travel series, she also writes contemporary romances

My Review:
Chapman’s Christmas novella is full of characters who become friends and full of humorous scenes but a big draw back for me, was the use of too much passion, leaving me with a mixed feeling about the book. While I would recommend this book to people who enjoy a sexier story, I, myself, do not feel this book is a good holiday read because of all the passion.

I do want to say, though, that the author does deserve praise for a true writing talent. It is just the sexier passion that throws me off, causing me to give the book itself only 3 stars.
