Advent Reads Day 18: The Naughty List by Heather Horrocks

Welcome to Advent Reads!
This is an event I have had on my blog for several years running now.  Each evening I feature a different holiday themed book. Think of it as your Book Advent Calendar! I post a variety of holiday books including romance, children's, middle-grade, mystery, paranormal, and I try to find some that are other holiday celebrations than Christmas too. I hope you will stop by each evening to see what new book I have for you!
Synopsis: "THE NAUGHTY LIST (Christmas Street Romantic Comedy Novella #2)

With the ink still fresh on her college degree, Ariel Swanson has big plans. But plans are made for derailing, and her normally healthy Nana calls to ask for help until the end of the year because she’s not well, Ariel knows family comes before dreams.

Ariel arrives to find some surprises—like the strange man sleeping in Nana’s over-the-garage apartment and Nana having some problems that don’t seem to have an explanation.

Dr. Matthew Monson has his own plan—and it doesn’t involve a woman. His ex-wife cost him everything he had and he’s focused on paying off his debts. She left him distrustful of all women—especially of the woman who is distracting him every time he goes outside.

Christmas is a time for miracles—and this year Ariel, Nana, and Matthew need one more than ever."

My Review: I have been reading one of the books in this series for the past couple of years and while this wasn't as good as the first one it was still a fun book to read. Classic meddling elders wanting romance for the younger generations. I liked Matthew best in this story, though I really did enjoy revisiting some of the characters from the earlier books. Ariel was okay for me though a little weak in personality for me but still added to the story nicely. This was a fun and clean romance for the holidays, it was also a short read to squeeze into your busy schedule.
My Rating: This is a fun, light and clean romance for the holiday season. I didn't connect a lot with the characters but did really enjoy the story. I give this one a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
