Book review: A Honey of a Christmas by Jessica R. Patch

About the Book

They say opposites attract; it’ll take a Christmas miracle to keep this couple from killing one another!

Agnes Piercy is finally going to make her mark now that she’s in charge of the Honeyhaven Winter Wonderland. She’s created a new event this year—Santa’s Village—which will bring in tons of tourists and money for charities and church ministries, and secure her a full client list when she opens up her own event planning business. But things go haywire from the get-go, including her feelings for one Tuck Renner.

Tuck Renner has been tasked (against his will) with building the Santa’s Village which means taking orders from Miss Bossy Pants herself—Agnes Piercy. Sadly, she’s off to a seriously rocky start. Feeling sorry for her, and a lot sorry for himself having to hear about it day in and out, he vows to make this the greatest event ever. Except nothing goes as planned. But everything may end up exactly like it was meant to.

My Review

This contemporary novella took place in a small southern town, where everyone knows everyone else, and everyone knows everyone else's business.  But it was great seeing the whole town come together for a special Christmas celebration.  Having been friends for so long, Agnes and Tuck are both surprised and recalcitrant as they develop feelings for each other.  Having been irritants to each other for so long, there conversations tended to be somewhat harsh as they negotiated this turn in their relationship.

There were many great lessons learned in this book, about forgiveness, trust, and speaking the truth.  This was second in a series, and enough background was given from the first book so I was informed, but not bogged down.

I recommend this book for those who love a  good Christmas romance!

I received an e-ARC of this book from the author for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.
