Sometimes, the real story isn’t the beautiful city girl returning to her small town to save Christmas—it’s the townie chick who never left.
Jane Zielinski has her hands full this December, working three jobs and directing a homemade reality dating web series, Single Bells, as a stunt to keep her small town competitive with the ritzy resort towns luring tourists. Then the gorgeous Bella Bradley, Jane’s childhood BFF who had no qualms about skipping town when times got tough, returns with handfuls of cash and her smoking-hot business partner Nate Wright on her arm.
Jane can’t believe she’s being upstaged again, especially when Bella uses the Single Bells activities to rekindle a romance with her high school boyfriend—the man Jane had envisioned her future with. So if a little competition could convince Bella to leave town—again—Jane is ready to take the mittens off. And she’s not above sabotage, cheating, or flirting with Nate to win. Let the reindeer games begin…
Jane is a small town girl and she likes it that way. Mostly. But when her little town hits some financial trouble, she takes it upon herself to help in a unique way. A holiday themed dating show!
Then her ex-bestie comes to town and tries to take it all over and on top of that, she tries to take Jane’s man. Can you believe it?
It’s a good premise for a story but I didn’t love it the way I thought I would. It was a good time and I especially loved the relationship between Jane and Bella. It wasn’t my favorite book but it was an enjoyable read.
