About Merry Ex-Mas
I haven’t been home for Christmas in eight years.
But that’s about to change. This year, I’m traveling to my small hometown to convince my producer to make me the permanent host of Good Day Denver.
The plan: Charm viewers by sharing my favorite family Christmas traditions, and in turn, get the likes, clicks and shares to land the job.
Not the plan: Running into my ex-boyfriend.
In my house.
But here he is, a guest of my mother, who apparently had more trouble letting go of Max Weber than I did.
Unfortunately, he is as handsome and charming and talented and annoying and frustrating and flirty as ever.
Even more unfortunately, he seems to have a plan of his own—to convince me to give him a second chance.
Which is not happening.
There’s just one problem—my viewers love him. More than that, they love us. Me and Max. My ex.
The boy who broke my heart.
The boy I now have to fake flirt with to win over the hearts of my viewers.
But it’s not their hearts I’m worried about. . . it’s mine.
Merry Ex-Mas is a sweet, small town, second chance romance with a dash of not-so-fake flirting, a tiny bit of enemies to lovers and just enough forced proximity to make things sizzle.
I love a book that reads like a Hallmark movie. Both of Courtney Walsh’s books do that. I read A Cross Country Christmas last year, so I was really excited that she had a new Christmas one for me to read this year. And I loved it as well!
Marin is the main female character in this one. She hasn’t been home for Christmas for a very long time. Because her heart was broken. And when she finally goes home for Christmas with a camera crew, she finds her ex-boyfriend opening her door. This starts a whole host of craziness for Marin. I had to laugh at all the things that happened to her. The parade scene may be my very favorite! But Marin starts to change and see things in a different way. And I think we all need that sometimes.
Then there’s Max. The ex-boyfriend. Max is a decent guy. He was actually trying to protect Marin, even though she didn’t see it that way. I loved that the reader got to see events through his eyes as well. And I love that Max had some things he needed to see in a different way too.
I loved the Christmas spirit that came from reading this one. It’s such a great book, make sure you read it!
