This Christmas, two worlds collide
…under the mistletoe!
All Theo Taylor wants for Christmas is a profitable year-end and a flawless wedding for his sister. Hiring beautiful but unknown designer Josie Beck is a huge risk, especially when the Taylors’ reputation is at stake. Josie is sweet, kind and impossible to resist. But is Josie about to destroy Theo’s perfect wedding plan…or is she the answer to his heart’s secret Christmas wish?

This was a very sweet and hard earned romance for the Christmas season. We have two characters who come from very different backgrounds yet both did not have the ideal family they always craved. One turned into a perfectionist and the other felt she did not and could not live up to any standard. That she would always be on the outside looking in.
Throw in some wedding planning and a lot of family drama, instead of a bridezilla it was almost a momzilla, and a brother, Theo who is trying to make the whole world believe his family is perfect. For the family business sake.
In he walks into Josie's boutique and the attraction is there but their differences are too great. They don't see things the same, she is generous and he sees the need to make a profit. I enjoyed watching these two get to know each other, he was so gruff and serious and Josie was so tenderhearted. He certainly acted a fool sometimes and Josie definitely shed some tears. But the end was most romantic and satisfying for this endearing Christmas read.
