Description from


Lacey Quinn does not believe in happily-ever-after or the legend of the Christmas Cottage. But her best friend does, and she’s the one getting married. It’s Lacey’s job to make sure everything at the cottage is perfect for the newlyweds. Instead, she finds herself snowed in with the best man, and she begins to wonder if fairy tales really can come true.


Deet’s Review:

This one was not bad.  Lacey and Ean were meant for each other and it was fun seeing them come together. Ava was a Bridezilla of the first degree and extremely annoying.  I don’t mean just a bit annoying, there was no way to like her.  That Lacey put up with her is credit to a long term friendship. For me this was a book to pass the time, kinda fun and romantic but just okay.

Deet’s Rating: 3.5 Sexy Rating: 5- Behind closed doors



Ava Callahan wants desperately to believe in love everlasting. But when Brian McCabe walks back into her life and upsets her carefully organized world, her commitment to perfection makes it hard to accept the love that’s right in front of her. Will it take a night in the Christmas Cottage for Ava and Brian to find their happy ending?


Deet’s Review:

Brian is Mason’s best friend.  Mason and Ava were about to be married but they broke up in The Christmas Cottage book.  Now Brian is back wooing Ava 8 months after the break up and Mason is about to marry someone else.  I still find Ava to be beyond annoying.  I don’t really care if she and Brian get together because who is this Brian anyway and what does he see in this poor excuse of a woman, Ava? Too harsh? Maybe.  This book was torture for me to finish since Ava is not my idea of a sympathetic protagonist. Deet’s Rating: 1, Sexy Rating: 5-Behind closed doors.
