❅ In Mistletoe ❅ Tammy L Bailey ❅

At twenty-five, Grace Evans is steadily picking up the pieces of everyone elses life. So, when her younger sister decides to turn into a runaway bride just four weeks before the wedding, Grace, drops everything to chase after her and bring her back home. Only, when the trail leads to Mistletoe, Washington, she finds herself at the mercy of the towns most handsome and emotionally unavailable bachelor.

Ex-Army officer, Ayden McCabe, has three creeds in life: never make the first move, never fall in love, and never take anyone to Mistletoe
s Christmas Dance. Wanting nothing more than to keep his matchmaking sister from meddling in his personal life, he agrees to help Grace if she agrees to play his girlfriend. Too brunette and meek for his taste, Ayden believes Grace cant tempt him enough to break any of his creeds. He could not be more wrong.

ARC received from author for an honest review

This is my second Tammy L Bailey read and it is one I really enjoyed.

Right from the start, Grace and Ayden's story gripped me and had me hoping, no needing them to have a HEA.

Ayden was a bit of a d!ck to begin with really, but oh did I adore him as much for it and I wanted to slap him for it.

Their story wasn't really what I was expecting - not a bad thing at all though.  I was expecting a sugary sweet Christmas story full of jingle bells and ho ho hos.  But In Mistletoe was so much more.  The characters delved deeper than just a holiday romance.

I am still unsure about how I feel about what some characters did in this story.  I can understand the why of what they did, but the execution... hmm, the jury is still out on that one! I can't decide if I love them for what they did or if I am still holding on to a bit of anger!

Thanks for that Ms Bailey!  I can't wait to see what you bring us next
