Advent Reads Day 4: Bah, Humbug! by Heather Horrocks

Synopsis: "Lexi Anderson is an up-and-coming, Martha Stewart-type TV hostess whose two kids love the Jared Strong adventure novels, which happen to be written by their new neighbor, Kyle Miller.
For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer's block - until he sees the snowman on his lawn and realizes this is the perfect place for his villain to hide the weapon. He digs into the snowman to discover two things: the weapon fits int he body just under the head, and the snowman was supposed to be the back drop for Lexi's next show.

From this improbable beginning comes friendship. Can there be more for a woman who is afraid to get close again and a man who has shadows from his childhood?

Families join together and hearts are healed as this couple goes walking in a winter wonderland."

My Review: This was a fun, quick holiday romance to read. It was highly unbelievable but still so sweet. I loved the characters, though Kyle's personality changed far to drastically in such a short amount of time, Lexi's while still a big change was a little more realistic. The concept of the story was great though, what reader wouldn't want to imagine moving in next door to their favorite author and to find out that they are single as are you?! The emotional charge behind it all was very moving as well, I definitely had a few tears in my eyes.
My Rating: This one may have been unbelievable in the time line but it was so enjoyable.  I give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
