About the Book
Christmas Town’s city attorney Lincoln Vasser suspects the multi-million-dollar lawsuit threatening the town is a fraud, but he needs help proving it. Private Investigator Jax Marshall comes highly recommended, but when Lincoln hires her he can’t quite figure out why. Her laid-back attitude, questionable work ethic, and apparent unconcern for the urgency of the case rub him the wrong way. It doesn’t make sense for him to be attracted to her.
Jax Marshall knows that taking a case for the arrogant Lincoln Vasser is a mistake. But when he makes her an offer much more tempting than money, she agrees. She soon wishes she hadn’t. The guy is demanding and uptight, and, worst of all, he keeps trying to tell her how to do her job! He’s almost completely unlikable. Almost.
One thing they can agree on is that happy ever afters are strictly for fairytales and Christmas Town myths. Finding a way to work together is difficult enough, admitting that they’re falling in love is going to take an extra little nudge from that very Christmas Town magic they don’t believe in.
In My Opinion…
In this short novel, city attorney Lincoln Vasser and private investigator Jax Marshall butt heads from the get-go.
Lincoln’s tunnel-vision concerning the threat of a lawsuit that will sink the town blinds him to everything else, and when Jax doesn’t seem to be taking his case seriously, he aims to set her straight.
Jax is extremely likable, offering no excuses for who she is. She’s good at her job, respects all of her clients, and refuses to be pushed around—especially by Lincoln.
As these get thrown together and begin to recognize the effort and importance surrounding the case, the attraction grows. Then Lincoln’s tenacity appears when he sets his sights on changing Jax’s mind about him—and them.
This short and sweet story set in Christmas Town is a tasty holiday treat.
