    This! This is my favorite in the series so far. When I saw who the main heroine was going to be, I groaned. How could Chloe be redeemable? She was such an unapologetic, selfish bitch that I couldn't imagine how I could possibly want a Happily Ever After for her. I was so happy to be proven wrong. Knowing Chloe's confidence issues on a personal level didn't excuse her actions, but at least gave me a level of understanding of them, to which I could relate.

She was such an unapologetic, selfish bitch that I couldn't imagine how I could possibly want a Happily Ever After for her. I was so happy to be proven wrong. Knowing Chloe's confidence issues on a personal level didn't excuse her actions, but at least gave me a level of understanding of them, to which I could relate. Then, finding a real condition to explain her problems gave her another air of realism, and kicked up my sympathy another notch. Then watching her seamlessly find ways to help others, even when it was over a selfish reason... Remodeling a house for her own comfort? Selfish, maybe. Hiring out of work vets and paying them more than the job was worth? Selfless. She was a constant mix of contradictions, and struggling so hard to find herself that I couldn't help but love her. The romance was steamy, but not overdone. It was a reawakening of a love thought long lost, so it carried the tingles of new love, along with the sweet memories of childhood romance, and second chances. The character growth was a thing of beauty. There was so much for the characters to learn, so many ways for them to not so much change, but to adapt to their circumstances. A chance for them to start over, to become what they wanted to be in the first place. I love when character growth is realistic. Again, there is Christmas itself. This town is a character all its own. The characters, the places. I love being absorbed in the side stories and the side characters of this lovely little town. Even with its gossip and old biddies, it is a place I would love to spend time in. Each time I pick up another Christmas, Colorado book, I can't seem to handle floating back to the real world when it's over. Can I just live in Christmas, please? ~ George, 5 stars

When last we met I was totally on board with her getting run over by a Christmas Parade float. Totally. On. Board. But dayum! Mason is GOOD! Completely won me over to Chloe. Never thought that would be possible. The quick of it is that Chloe has come home to Christmas for her sister's engagement party and she might not have the best of intentions. She's home for a week and, well, the trust is low. Enter her high school crush Easton who has some bad blood with Chloe--for good reasons-- who takes it on himself to keep an eye on her while she's in town. By moving her into his house. Cat's one of his best friends and he'll be damned if he's gonna let her sister ruin things for her. Whew. I was nervous going into this one! I really didn't see how Chloe could possibly be a heroine I could get behind. And for a while there I was pretty certain I was going to have to go on a rant. Chloe is not an easy heroine there at the start. She's not got the best intentions, she comes off self centered, judgmental and is just off-putting. BUT!!! Don't give up on her yet! I actually really fell in love with Chloe. Her outer shell is hiding a lot of insecurity and a hurt little girl who never felt good enough. And a lot of what she does can come off very badly but usually she has good intentions originally (even if they can be somewhat self serving at the same time) and just doesn't quite know the right way to make things happen. I may have muttered some bad words in her direction. And then muttered some bad words in the direction of people being awful to her too. And Easton. The man has a chin dimple. Woo!! He was a pretty great guy though he could have some jerky moments too. He's got a lot of animosity towards Chloe there at the start--again with good reason--and it took him a while to get past that. But I liked him like I liked Chloe. He's a veteran and has some battle scars he's dealing with, cares deeply for his friends and can be pretty dang sexy. I really liked them together too! Once they got past the whole growly issues they had with one another. They had nice chemistry, a bit of a past from high school and even though they had such opposite personalities I liked how they fit together. There's a little heat but everything is pretty much the fade to black sort. A lot of the book was Chloe dealing with all of the bridges she'd burned over the years. With having to help save a school that broke her down as a child. With old impressions and new hurts. It wasn't always easy to read and had my emotions all over the dang place as Chloe tried to find her path and Easton was taken along for the ride. All in all, Mason wowed! It takes tremendous talent to take a 'love to hate em' type character like Chloe turn them into a character a person can root for and want to champion. Kiss Me In Christmas was everything I expect from Mason. Heartwarming, touching and full of make-you-swoon romance. ~~~notes~~~ 2/17--Damn! Mason is GOOD! Totally won me over to Chloe. Never thought that would be possible.lol Full review to come. 2/15--I'm so damn nervous about this one! I seriously wanted Chloe to get hit by a Christmas parade float in the last book so her as a heroine...eeps! But I love Mason's writing and gonna try real hard to trust her here at the start. Fingers crossed!

Easton was the delicious boy who had been caught up in a lie with the twins back in high school, and held quite the grudge for Chloe ever since. In the beginning of KISS ME IN CHRISTMAS, I wasn't sure if Chloe was going to be able to change her scheming ways, she was already trying to do the "right thing", which is always the wrong thing, but Easton was able to steer her in the right direction, and if that led to her being in his bed...Guess that is all the better! If there is one heroine who needed to get laid...well...Chloe was it! If you haven't read this series yet, I swear you will have so much fun with these characters, and become so engrossed in their world, you won't want to leave! After reading the previous title, SNOWBOUND AT CHRISTMAS, I went back and purchased the boxed set of the first three and the fourth, you will literally feel the same way! Another fabulous romance...can't wait for the next!

Kiss Me in Christmas by Debbie Mason is the sixth book in Christmas, Colorado series but the first that I have read in this series and by the author. In this book, we meet actress Chloe O' Connor who is known as a drama queen and all round despised by the people in her town and after her stunt last year where she blamed her twin sister, Cat, of attempting to murder her, her relations with her family are also on the rocks. Amidst all this, now she has to attend Cat's engagement party and face all the people she doesn't want to face anytime soon. Then she is dreading meeting Easton MacBride, the one boy she ever loved and then lost to her own sister, Cat! With these problems, the drama begins with a healthy dose of romantic differences, some heated glances, quite a few misunderstandings, some fake fainting, small town melodrama, heartfelt emotional play and also plenty of suspense and action that had me sitting glued to the book right till the end! I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and while this is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. However, despite this, I think it is better to read the books in order because characters and story lines from previous books are used in this one and had me wishing I had read the previous books first so that I could understand the undercurrents better. Debbie's writing style is fluid and she had me engaged all through the story. Her portrayal of a small town is so very realistic with gossipy neighbours, troublemaker old women and old grudges that still spice the everyday life of the residents. I enjoyed meeting the MacBride and O'Connor family. They are a varied bunch and sometimes very irritating and other times so lovable with their loyalty and love for each other. I felt sorry for Chloe who has been misunderstood all her life and feels that no one loves her which does seem true several times. She loves her family and despite their not-so-good-opinion about her, still tries her best to do right by them which often leads to more trouble. Poor her! Easton MacBride started out as a jerk and I didn't like him very much but later on when I started getting to know more about him, he came out as a caring, responsible and protective lover and his romance with Chloe had me smiling through my tears, feeling sorry for Chloe for all the years she lost and angry with everyone including Easton who didn't believe in Chloe earlier. I didn't like Cat. She comes out as an attention seeking, unhelpful sister and I think I will have my judgement reserved on her character until I read the previous books which I am told will help me understand her and Chloe's relationship dynamics better. Chloe and Cat's mother came out weak and as a biased parent and I just don't like such people who don't know their own children and take sides. She didn't know Chloe one bit and it was kind of sad. I loved meeting Ty and Estelle and their unflinching support to Chloe. I laughed at their plotting attempts at matchmaking and then attempts to better Chloe's reputation! The story is fast paced and so beautifully brought out on paper that it had me totally invested in the characters' lives and hooked to the romance, wanting to know more what happened next. All in all, Kiss Me in Christmas by Debbie Mason is a complete package with a heartfelt story, genuine characters that are flawed, a whole bucket load of drama, passionate romance and action. 4.5 out of 5 to it and recommended to all romance lovers. After this book, now I am eager to start on the previous books and get to know more about this town and its very colourful people even more while I wait for the next book in this series. I received an ARC from the publishers and the tour organizers via Netgalley and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in No way influenced.

That's saying a lot because at the end of the previous book, I did not think it was possible for Chloe to be redeemed but Ms. Mason did it and showed us a different side to her.

That's saying a lot because at the end of the previous book, I did not think it was possible for Chloe to be redeemed but Ms. Mason did it and showed us a different side to her. Lots of humor, heart and emotion make KISS ME IN CHRISTMAS a delightful read. Chloe O'Connor may be a TV darling but in Christmas, Colorado she is considered to be a high maintenance drama queen and an airhead. In reality, her ditzy routine covers a very sweet, smart and caring woman afraid of rejection. Chloe acts with the best intentions but the results are almost always far from what she intends. A childhood plagued by sickness and high school awkwardness have made her very insecure and she masks this with the diva attitude and only one person can see beneath that facade: Easton McBride. Easton fondly remembers the quiet, kind and shy Chloe from high school that he enjoyed spending time with, but would prefer to stay away from the spoilt woman she has become. Unfortunately, this is not possible because Chloe needs someone to keep her in line and he's the only one that can do this. What starts out rocky becomes a very sweet and emotional journey of discovery for Chloe. With Easton's help, she lets the people of Christmas see the sweet and intelligent person underneath and finds herself enjoying a town that she couldn't wait to leave and falling in love with the one man that has always been there for her. I loved Easton for standing up for Chloe and was rooting for their HEA. Family drama, misunderstandings, small town shenanigans all add to the chaos of this story. It's hard to say a lot about this book without spoilers, but I think it's one everyone should experience firsthand. This story makes you feel a lot: anger, happiness, frustration, sadness, laughter tears, etc. but it's definitely worth reading. The entire series is a must-read and I can't wait for the next book.

    This was my first book in the series. After reading this one, I want to go back and read the others. I have perused some reviews and realized that I missed a lot of the backstory.

I just feel like I missed out on some serious emotions connected to reading the entire series in relation to this book. I have had this book waiting for me to read it for some time, however I was holding off on reading it because I figured it would be a nice sweet read to help bring me down from all of the darker books I had on deck. Well, it brought be down... down... down... This book wasn't as sweet as I had thought it would be. My emotions took a nice little bumpy ride from start to finish. It's sweet, it's sad, it made me angry and happy. I really like this author's writing style. Her voice is very strong and profound. She writes with a purpose and doesn't mince her words. I loved that there weren't long drawn out parts where I just wanted her to get on with the rest of the book. I point this out because that tends to happen in some of the romances I read. That was not the case with this book. If I were recommending this book to someone, I would suggest reading the others first. It isn't necessary, but I think it would be beneficial to get to know the characters. Many are having stronger reactions to this story than I am because they were already invested in the characters.

    This was one of my favorites of the Christmas series that I've read so far. Chloe O'Connor and her twin sister Cat were introduced in a previous book, but this one works fine as a standalone. Chloe is a well-known soap opera star, a diva who made a lot of people's lives difficult, so the rest of the cast don't really mind too much when her character is killed off.

Chloe O'Connor and her twin sister Cat were introduced in a previous book, but this one works fine as a standalone. Chloe is a well-known soap opera star, a diva who made a lot of people's lives difficult, so the rest of the cast don't really mind too much when her character is killed off. But Chloe hates it because her soap opera character is her life, her identity. So she's licking her wounds by the time she returns home to Christmas, Colorado where her mother insists she make an appearance at her sister's engagement party. She's especially overwrought about seeing Easton McBride, the former high school football player she had a crush on back in school the whole while she was a chubby, bespectacled duckling who turned into a gorgeous swan her senior year. But she played a dangerous jealous prank on Easton, pretending to be Cat, after he dated her self-confident cheerleader twin, pretty much ending all hope of her and Easton remaining friends. Easton is working in security after injuring his leg badly while serving in the Middle East and he doesn't want anyone's pity, particularly haughty Chloe O'Connor's. It's easy to dislike someone like Chloe, but in this book we see glimpses of a sweet and generous girl she really is, one who never felt good enough growing up. She had heart problems as a small child and suffers from severe panic attacks because of it. But no one's ever figured that out before Easton, preferring to think our little diva is just a huge drama queen. The sparks really start to fly when Easton decides to teach Chloe a lesson for acting the way she did in high school and his little prank backfires completely on him. But what chance do Easton and Chloe have at a relationship when her life is in L. A. and the acting world and his is firmly entrenched in Christmas? It's a cute book that had me rooting for the seemingly spoiled little diva! I received this as an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley.

I could not wait to read it and I was not disappointed at all. I was happy to discover that most of the characters in this story I had already met in the previous book. Chloe is experiencing a time not very happy. She's a successful actress but her producers decides to kill her character and has not received any other offer of employment. In addition, her twin sister is going to marry the man that she loved too, and must participate in their engagement party. For the occasion she has to return to her hometown of Christmas. The first person she meets is Easton, her high school crush, and her heart beats fast as the last time she saw him. Chloe wants to destroy the love story of her sister Cat with Grayson and only Easton can help her to achieve her goal. Upon request by Cat, Easton has to check Chloe and avoid her combining trouble. To carry out their plans they have to live together for a week and although they fight constantly, the attraction between them is very strong. At the beginning in the book I really could not endure Chloe. Hypochondriac, wanting to be the center of attention, rancorous. Throughout the story she evolves and gradually returns to the sweet and awkward girl as she was before leaving Christmas. Under the mask is hiding a fragile woman, insecure, in need of love. The author has done a great job, make people love a character so odious is really hard. Easton is a very sexy man but very stubborn and often grumpy, especially with Chloe. He's also protective, gentle and funny. The books in this series keep getting better and better, each book can be read as a standalone, but once you read one you will want to read them all. This story is really well written, intriguing and engaging with a fast pace. The plot kept me on edge from start to finish, I was excited each time I got to turn the page. It was difficult to put it down, I could not wait to leave my job to continue reading. Highly recommended

    Kiss Me in Christmas by Debbie Mason is a sweet, standalone romance novel that takes place in the fictional town of Christmas, Colorado. The novel focuses on the past history and complicated relationship between soap star Chloe O’Connor and her longstanding crush Easton McBride.

The novel focuses on the past history and complicated relationship between soap star Chloe O’Connor and her longstanding crush Easton McBride. Chloe has flown back to town from Los Angeles for her sister’s engagement party and has brought drama along as her date. Easton, though cautious and critical of Chloe’s purpose for being back in town initially, warms up to Chloe and sparks begin to fly. Both Chloe and Easton have well developed and distinct characteristics. Both sport nicknames that give insight into their personalities as well. Easton enjoys calling Chloe “Scarlett” due to her flamboyant tendencies and flair for the dramatic, while Easton is Chloe’s version of a white knight. He is always coming to the rescue even when he believes Chloe’s messes are of her own making. They actually seem very different and incompatible with one another at first, but as their story unfolds, it becomes apparent that their differences complement one another. They are constantly at odds with one another over Chloe’s sisters’ engagement as well as living arrangements and their quirky families only serve to intensify the drama. Indeed, a unique aspect of this novel is that both their families are tightly intertwined with one another. Easton’s dad is married to Chloe’s mom, so an important aspect of their story is familial interference. In a town like Christmas, nothing is kept secret for long. Because of the rich cast of characters, readers not only get to know Chloe and Easton but also their support systems and acquaintances. The author includes characters from previous Christmas, Colorado novels, so if you are someone who enjoys catching up on past H/H’s, then I would definitely recommend Debbie Mason’s Christmas, Colorado series. Though there is no need to read the previous novels before reading Kiss Me in Christmas, the secondary characters have intriguing backstories, and it would be worth going back to read the previous novels.

I absolutely abhor Chloe and wasn't really sure that I could ever see her redeemed. I was wrong. I feel like she redeemed herself and she does have some great qualities and even some good reasons for acting the way that she acted but...I still don't like her. I don't hate her in the same way that I did before but I still don't see her as a character I could ever really love. I disliked her behavior for so much of this book that at times I even found myself disliking Easton for liking her. Although, he finally did lay it all out to her that the reason she gets such vitriol from everyone in Christmas is basically brought on by her reflexive actions. I understand she's had her issues and has always felt less loved than Cat but that was her perception and nothing Cat should be held responsible for. Cat never purposely set out to hurt her. Chloe continuously treated her badly and whenever Cat stood up to her, Chloe played the victim. I just couldn't get past this. I don't know if I have some deep-seated sister issues or what, but I just couldn't see Chloe's behavior as excusable in any way. All that said, I couldn't put this book down and really enjoyed reading it. When a book evokes such strong feelings, positive or negative, it's worth reading. I'm in love with this series and the author's writing style. I don't even mind that the books are all "clean". I can't wait to read the next book! *I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review **See more of my reviews at www.fictionfangirls.com

In this book we have Chloe and Easton and it is pretty obvious from the get go that these two have a history, oh and what a history!!! So many things that they have gone through and most of them not very pleasant, that’s why when they meet again they aren’t the best of friends but one thing that they can’t deny is the amount of chemistry they have. Chloe is kind of a dive or maybe a full on DIVA, and even though we as readers can see that she means well sometimes things don’t always turn out like she wanted and it was at time funny and at time painful to see how she was treated by everyone in town, yes she is a bit misjudged but she also acts like she is really a DIVA and she doesn’t care, it takes someone special like Easton to realize that she is in pain and that in fact she does mean well even if her actions say otherwise. The book is so funny and romantic, I couldn’t stop reading and going back to investigate the past books, I’m definitely reading them and I can’t wait for the next one!!! So so excited!! I can’t believe I have to wait until June! But it will give me plenty of time to get caught up with the series.

Suddenly she is killed off the soap and no longer has a job. She goes home and that is when things start happening. Her heart is always in the right place but sometimes things turn out to be a disaster. Trouble just follows her. You will have many, many laughs but there will also be tears. This is a wonderful heart warming story from Christmas. It is part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

    I did not apply to review this book, but I received an ARC as an unexpected present (or maybe a mistake) from the publisher. It's not something I would usually read, as I don't do romance, but I tried to give it a generous skim so I could do my end of the deal, the "unbiased review". First, and this certainly came as a major surprise, Mason writes well. She's no literary genius, but her use of language is smart and clear, her wit is humorous and mostly not pretentious, her characters are cute eno I did not apply to review this book, but I received an ARC as an unexpected present (or maybe a mistake) from the publisher.

First, and this certainly came as a major surprise, Mason writes well. She's no literary genius, but her use of language is smart and clear, her wit is humorous and mostly not pretentious, her characters are cute enough, believable enough. Second, Mason is also a pretty good story-teller: the pacing of this novel is excellent, suspense broods as characters are propelled into action, and relationships between characters (seem, from a skim) to be more than just superficial, even if they are a bit... unrealistic (i.e. sugary romantic...) I can see the plot as probably cute and appealing to those who enjoy the genre (romantic suspense, or just syrupy PG rated romance). So, if this is your thing, you will probably enjoy it. If it's not - I don't recommend this.

    3.5 stars - Chloe was not nearly as fun as the other heroines in this series. I even like Skye better than her! But it was great to visit my old book friends and Easton was a good man for putting up with her ;)

Chloe O Connor, is a esteemed actress and has worked hard building her career. But when her character gets killed off a show, she decides to take a step back and return back home for a time. Easton McBride, after suffering a leg injury that ended his military career settled back in Christmas, a small town in Colorado. He is surprised when Chloe returns, a woman he loved and one who also hurt him the most. Tensions are high between Easton and Chloe. Chloe has a plan....to help get her sister Cat and Easton back together because in her mind Cat's fiancee isn't the right one. Easton's plan...distract Chloe away from her plan to break off things with Cat and Grayson. But plan have a habit of not working out the way you expected. In Kiss Me In Christmas we have a story that as I started reading it...I was nervous. Chloe is a character that grows on you, she is a bit high maintence, and a bit of a hypocondriac. Which was definitely different to see in a romance like this. But as I chugged along through the story I grew to really love her character and man she ended up being my favorite to be honest. Easton is a great hero, very stubborn and high handed at times but delicious too!! He handles Chloe very well and it seems he is the only one that can keep her calm and relaxed. I didn't care for Chloe's family in this book, and yes she made mistakes in the past but jeez...ten years have gone by. Its obvious through the story that her twin sister is the family favorite (and I hate it when parents favor other children above the rest, drives me nuts since my parents are that way so I really felt a connection to Chloe on that side of things). The romance was heartwarming and sweet. I couldn't help but smile all the way through reading this story. And another aspect I loved was seeing how this author didn't focus the story around sex. Yes y'all heard me the first time!! It was so refreshing to just sit back and relax into a sweet and fun love story...where the emotional intimacy of the relationship was a major factor. But don't worry there was some delicious kisses you can still swoon over!! Overall a satisfying romance that curled my toes and makes me eager for the next book...crossing my fingers for Jill's story though!! [foogallery id="19338"] "I thought you couldn't carry anything after hauling my fat butt out of the water." Easton really didn't want to go there right now. Not while he was trying to get an image of Chloe in the shower out of his head. "Your butt isn't fat, but if you don't get it in the cabin right now, you can carry your own bags to your room." Chloe smoothed her hand over her ass and glanced up at him through her long, spiked lashes. "You really don't think it's too big?" He bowed his head and groaned. "Okay, okay, I'm going." She walked in, then came to an abrupt stop in front of him. He bumped into her. "What now?" he muttered, dropping the bags to rub his leg. Her gaze flitted around the cabin. "Your place is, um, very cozy." She gave him a concerned look. "Is everything okay with you?" Cozy? He held back a grin. The cabin was about six hundred square feet and barely habitable, but it worked for him. Last week, he'd approved the final plans for the home he was building a couple hundred yards from the cabin. He was breaking ground in ten days and hoped to move in by the end of summer. Not that he'd share the news with Chloe. "Leg's a little sore, but yeah, I'm good." She nibbled on her bottom lip. "No, that's not what I meant." She gestured to the beat-up brown couch and the battered stove and refrigerator. "Are you having financial problems?" Considering what he had planned for her, it was best that she thought he was. "Medical expenses tapped me out, but I live off the land, so it's all good." He picked up her bags and walked past her. "You can take the bed." A brown curtain separated the bedroom from the living space. She followed him. "That's very nice of . . . That's not a bed; it's a mattress on the floor." She patted the wall. "Where's the light switch?" "There isn't one." He struggled to keep the amusement from his voice. He should have hidden a camera to film her reaction. Especially when he responded to the next question he had no doubt she'd ask. She looked around the room, then leaned back to search the outer area. "Where's the loo?" "Loo? Don't think I have one of those," he said. Her fake British accent ticked him off. She sighed. "A bathroom, Easton. And of course you have one. I just want to know where it is." "Oh, sorry, I don't speak Brit. But yeah, I do. Out the door to your right and back about ten yards." "The front door is the . . . " Her gaze jerked to his. He grinned. "Yeah, we call it an outhouse here in the good old U. S of A."   a Rafflecopter giveaway

    This is the first book in the Christmas series by Debbie Mason but I found it read well as a stand alone book and I soon caught up on the background of the characters. Actress Chloe O'Connor has become America's sweetheart but she is back in her home town of Christmas where she is remembered as a shy awkward schoolgirl. She is home for the engagement party of her twin sister Cat , which turns nasty when Chloe is told she does not suffer from the heart condition which has influenced her life sinc This is the first book in the Christmas series by Debbie Mason but I found it read well as a stand alone book and I soon caught up on the background of the characters.

She is home for the engagement party of her twin sister Cat , which turns nasty when Chloe is told she does not suffer from the heart condition which has influenced her life since she was a child . She also meets up with Easton McBride who she remembers from her school days, having had a crush on him in those days. Debbie Mason is able to portray the characters vividly and there are a lot in the book, but the reader is soon absorbed into life in the Colorado town, as we learn more of the issues which can occur in small towns . Kiss Me in Christmas is a good read with a few unexpected twists, and I will be looking for more books by this author . Would recommend for anyone who enjoys contemporary romance

    More like 3.5 . I gotta say Chloe did redeem herself in this book, well, during the last quarter of the book. I don't know why but I keep laughing everytime something sweet happens between Easton and Chloe. Even now, I keep laughing when I play the supposedly sweet moments in my head. Just not a fan of their pairing, ya know? I didn't feel that intense need to get them together as soon as possible like the earlier book couples in this series. I didn't feel that chemistry I was looking for at all. More like 3.5 . I gotta say Chloe did redeem herself in this book, well, during the last quarter of the book.

I didn't feel that chemistry I was looking for at all. Like at all. I was kind of bored with this book, unlike the others but oh well. I'm glad I got more Grayson and Cat content in this book, also that it got me excited for Jill and Sawyer's book. Not a fan of Chloe and Easton together as a couple but sure, whatever. A huge factor could've been because I really despised Chloe in Cat's book, honestly, I despised her in this book as well. But the progression with Chloe and Easton's relationship was a little too 'in your face'. Or is it just me?

    This is the 6th book of the series and my least favorite. I did not care for the 2 sisters, Chloe and Cat. They acted more like spoiled teenagers than adults. And the 2 brothers they were with should have been smacked upside the head as well. All the other books I loved the brothers and the family dynamics and the women that they fell in love with. I don't know what it was about these women but they just were not right for them.

Also for someone who has anxiety I thought it was very wrong of them to not understand where Chloe was coming from not wanting anything to do with her old high school and to force her into a situation she was not comfortable with. No I wasn't bullied in high school but after reading so many books and watching the news, I felt it was totally wrong for no one to understand Chloe's feelings and to tell her to grow up was totally wrong. I listened to this on audio through my library.

    Ugh. I HATED Chloe in the last book and for most of this book. Nell's manipulations are one thing (and I kind of hate all of that too), but Chloe is so awful. And the weird thing is that most of her ideas were supposedly helping people, but she's so selfish that she couldn't see how bad it was. I know, by the end, she changed and all, but she's not my favorite. And I really hate the super corny thing DM is doing where the characters know Nell is writing books about them and they talk about it. V Ugh. I HATED Chloe in the last book and for most of this book.

As was the weird dream sequence thing at the end. I really liked Easton, but this book was not my favorite. I don't know why I read it and am still planning to read the final book. I guess I'm just a sucker for punishment. Or maybe I'm ready to see Jill get some!!!

    This is one of those books that has a character in it you love to hate. Chloe O'Connor is Cat 's twin sister. She had a heart condition as a child and when she got older and became an actress she used it to control her family and get her way. She is back home in Christmas and creating problems for her sister again when things don't go her way. Eventually she has to grow up and face up to what she has done.

    Surprising Heroine Chloe O’Connor was such an unlikeable character in the prior book in the series that I considered skipping this one. Fortunately, curiosity about how the author could redeem this character made me continue the binge read. So very happy that I did. One of the best books in a really, really good series. Chloe is without question redeemed.

    I just love this series! Each book is about different characters, but still the same town. This was a quick read. There were some not-believable parts, but it didn't take away from the story. I did get a little teary-eyed with the whole Cat-Chloe injury part. It's like watching a soap opera when reading. I just love this series!

    Couple number 6. Christmas town certainly has its good friendly family ups and downs. It was thrilling to read how people react in different situations involving their dreams, fears and life events. The characters definitely have you gripped to their story line and you forget to put the book down until you have finished that chapter. Another enjoyable read by Debbie Mason.

    This is a good story about developing real self-confidence and being true to yourself no matter what Chloe is trying to make things up to her twin sister and as usual things go wrong before she can fix them. She is also dealing with the loss of her career. Easton agrees to help and tries to play a trick on her that backfires on him. A fun story of love.

    I won this book and I loved it! I would rate it as excellent! A drama queen from start to finish that has more to her than anyone suspected, mainly the people in her home town and her family. The book was fun to read with antics that Chloe O'Connor creates. I won this book and I loved it! I would rate it as excellent!

    The story was fine but I just didn't like Chloe. The author did such a good job of making you not like her in the preceding books that trying to redeem her in this book just fell short for me.
