DEBUT Growing up, Rachel Reed and Morgan Ross were best friends, but in the end they broke each other’s hearts. Morgan ran off to Los Angeles to become a high-profile event planner, and Rachel stayed behind to run her family’s business. Over the past seven years, Morgan has worked herself into a self-absorbed, anxiety-riddled mess, too afraid of rejection to form any close relationships. Now, on the heels of a public mistake that went viral, Morgan is returning to her hometown over the holidays to organize a fundraiser, get herself some positive PR, and redeem her reputation. But she can’t plan this event without involving Rachel, and that means coming to terms with painful memories. This steamy second-chance queer romance is told from Morgan’s point of view, and her character arc is a believable journey from prickly protagonist to someone readers will cheer for. Rachel is a well-developed love interest, and the chemistry between them sizzles from the beginning.
VERDICT A well-written fast-paced debut, with fun banter and narrative; readers looking for a sweet and spicy holiday romance won’t be disappointed.
