Merry and Bright

Ballantine. Oct. 2017. 272p. ISBN 9780399181221. $20; ebk. ISBN 9780399181238. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
With her family, the holidays, and her difficult, by-the-book boss all demanding her attention, Merry Knight, a temp at a consulting firm, has no time for a social life. Her mother and brother take matters into their own hands and sign her up for an online dating site (under a pseudonym, with the family dog as her photo), leaving Merry annoyed, then curious, and finally amazed when she connects with a kindred spirit. But her cyberbeau is none other than her overworked, difficult boss Jayson Bright, something neither of them knows until they have almost fallen in love.
VERDICT Online dating leads to hilarious, eventually romantic results for a deserving, likable pair in this tender holiday delight. Macomber (Any Dream Will Do) lives in Port Orchard, WA. [See Prepub Alert, 5/1/17.]
