Review of The Christmas Project by Maxine Morrey

Read for: Netgalley/ Requested Review
Synopsis: "Professional organiser Kate Stone has never – NEVER – been tempted to hit a client over the head with a snow shovel, but Michael O'Farrell is the most obnoxious – and heart-stoppingly gorgeous – man she has ever met. If he weren't her best friend’s brother, she would not have waited on his doorstep in the freezing cold for five minutes, let alone an hour.

Kate knows, however, that her job isn’t just about tidying up, sometimes she needs to be part therapist too, and Michael clearly needs her help to declutter his heart as well as his home.

But with the festive season just around the corner there isn’t much time to get Michael’s house ready for the O’Farrell family celebrations, but everyone knows that at Christmas anything can happen…"

My Review:  I saw this book and have been in the mood for some Christmas stories and this seemed to be a perfect fit. I must admit it took me a while to get used to the British sentiments and words but once I got used to it, they were a perfect fit and added an authenticity to the story. I really enjoyed the characters and their banter back and forth was very entertaining. The relationship was eased into nicely with no instalove (thank goodness) but a development of friendship and more. It was a great feel good holiday book. 
My Rating: I rather enjoyed this book, I often struggle with books using slang that is unfamiliar to me but I was able to quickly settle into this book. It was a great way to kick off the holiday season. I give it a rating of Four Paws!
I received The Christmas Project via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
