Lighting Up Christmas

Tule. Oct. 2021. 268p. ebk. ISBN 9781954894570. $3.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
There are two things Riley Flanagan wants for Christmas: to run the Christmas Light Garden in her hometown of Bear Creek, OR, and to prove she’s ready to take over her family’s electrician business. Both dreams seem remote until Riley bumps into tech entrepreneur and vineyard owner Zhang Shi. If Riley can convince Zhang to hire her as his vineyard’s official electrician, it could lead to more lucrative contracts. But mysterious and good-looking Zhang is harder to crack than an unroasted Christmas chestnut. Even Riley’s bubbly, unflappable personality can’t seem to get past Zhang’s hardened defenses. Riley’s overtures of friendship puzzle Zhang, who is used to people avoiding him because of his shyness and blunt manner of speaking. He’s intrigued by Riley’s talent for creating one-of-a-kind light fixtures and hires her to wire his vineyard, only to realize that she’s lighting up his heart as well.
VERDICT Sparky heroine Riley and loner hero Zhang will appeal to fans of opposites-attract romances like The Kiss Quotient.
