    A sweet, but sexy, quick holiday read!

    It’s been a while since I’ve read a book by Shannon Stacey and this holiday novella reminded me of why I like her writing so much. She sure knows how to tell a great story and keep me entertained. Even though this was a quick read for me I felt that there was quite a bit of character development and no part of the story seemed short changed. I couldn’t find anything to tell me if Holiday with a Twist is linked to any of her longer works but there were several secondary characters that I sure would like to learn more about. I love her Kowalski’s series and, even though it’s been a long time since I’ve read any of those books, this has the same feel that I remember from that series. Leigh Holloway has come home to spend Christmas with her family but she wants to wait until after the holidays to tell them that her life back in Houston has kind of fallen apart. That seems like a fine plan until she meets up with an old frenemy, Croy Dawson and starts falling for him. Years ago Croy was in love with Leigh’s best friend until Leigh caused them to break up. He got over that a long time ago but never in his imagination did he think that he’d end up falling for Leigh. This story made me laugh in places and shed a few tears in others. It also left me wanting to read more about Leigh’s sisters and Croy’s brothers without giving me any kind of cliffhanger feeling. I just liked the characters so much that I hope she will write more about them. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.

    Highly recommended

    Holiday with a Twist was a fun, fast-paced novella-length story from Shannon Stacey. Leigh Holloway is going home for Christmas to spend one last Christmas in the family home before her parents move to a smaller home. She has broken up with her fiancé and is looking for a new job, but decides to hide those facts from her family not to put anything else on them. Croy Dawson and Leigh Holloway were friends growing up until Croy's girlfriend, who was Leigh's best friend broke his heart. Leigh always felt a little responsible, so they haven't spoken in years. I really liked they had a history, though they had never been more than friends. I loved they seemed to pick up their friendship right where it had ended and it felt completely natural to me. I loved that Leigh had told Croy about what was going on in her life before sharing with her family and he was just fine with keeping her secret. I really liked the pace at which Croy and Leigh moved from friends to more. While they had never seen themselves as more than friends when they were younger, there was a natural progression to their relationship. I did fear that Leigh keeping her secret too long would end up being a big issue for me, especially once I felt like she and Croy were heading to a real relationship. Happily her family discovered the truth before it was too big an issue for me. I'm a big fan of the friend to lover trope and felt like Ms. Stacey did a wonderful job with in in Holiday with a Twist. I highly recommend this story to help get you into the holiday spirit this year. Rating: 4 Stars (B) Review copy provided by publisher
