After a messy breakup, Leigh Holloway is ready to start her life over. Until her parents put the family home on the market and call her back for one final, memory-making Christmas. The last thing she wants to do is deprive her mom of the perfect holiday, so she'll lie her way through the visit and worry about her future in the New Year. Too bad the only bar in town is owned by a guy she seriously wronged in high school.Thoughts on Holiday with a Twist: I was looking for a light, not too angsty read when I came across this book. It was pretty much exactly what I needed when I needed it. Which makes me very happy.
Leigh's best friend broke Croy Dawson's heart, and Croy knows it was Leigh's fault. They've never liked each other, but Croy isn't cruel: he'd never turn away a pretty woman in need of some family-Christmas fortification. He doesn't expect her to drink just enough candy-cane martinis to tell him her secrets—and he definitely doesn't expect to get caught up in her holiday madness.
Despite the surprising love and laughter, Croy and Leigh can't escape the truth: he can't walk away from his family obligations and she has a life and career to reboot. But anything is possible if your holiday comes with a twist…
I'm normally not a big fan of people keeping the type of secrets Leigh was keeping, but I could see where she was coming from here. All things considered, her fears were justified based on what she knew about her family. And with her sister already carving out a place for herself with her issues, Leigh did what she thought needed to be done.
Then we have Croy. Croy who had once been Leigh's friend and had never seen her as anything more right up until she got a little tipsy and started talking about how much she loved kissing. I loved that such a simple thing could flip a switch in him and put her on his radar in a BIG way.
Definitely sweet, these two made me grin. Especially with Leigh's not-so-stealthy attempts at trying to hide her attraction to Croy from her family. *thumbs up*
