Excerpt: “You’re not taking that tree, are you?”
"Aidan Hunter is tired of city living and shallow women who only want to date him for his money and family legacy. Dubbed “The Pasta King” and named most eligible bachelor in New York City, he escapes to his cabin upstate to figure out what he wants. He hopes to meet a woman who will love him for who he is…but he never counted on a certain schoolteacher to throw his world into chaos.
Isabella Summers is shocked at the sexual attraction she feels for the rude worker on the Christmas tree farm. But when he shows up at a friend’s party and seeks her out, she finds she no longer wants to fight their attraction…but she never counted on love with a stranger carrying a secret.
Can love and truth triumph?" ~ From Goodreads
Such a great feel good story! With little excitement of a secret kept. The Holiday Hoax was fun, romantic and very christmassy, from tree shopping to a Christmas party to a snowball fight. This short 55 page read is perfect short little Christmas romance that keeps your mood light and can be read through after a day of prepping for Christmas to mellow out again.
I loved Aidan, poor little rich guy trying to find a girl who doesn't want him just for his millions but for himself, so going under cover to find a real woman he sells Christmas trees and one of them to Isabella, who he can't seem to stop thinking about.
Isabella I loved from the moment she decided on a Charlie Brown Christmas tree, how can you not love that! I also thoroughly enjoyed her teacher tricks and her friend Liz's kindergarten teacher tricks ( being a kindergarten teacher myself ). I liked the added tension of her having had a crappy relationship with a spoiled rich boy before. Dun dun duh!
The romance I enjoyed a lot, it was proper courting and dating for such a short story. Kudos! See you can use such lines as "two weeks later..." when you do it right, to create a deeper relationship for a short story. I loved how they took it slow and begun to fall in love admits all the Christmas preparations, and didn't jump in the sack first night. I really enjoyed The Holiday Hoax and at 1.99 cents it's a great find!
