I hate Christmas.
As CEO of my company, I’ve banned decorations from the office, festive music from the lobby and any kind of secret Santa gifts between employees are strictly forbidden.
I’m heading to the airport, away from the Christmas lights and the mulled wine, heading for sunshine and margaritas when I get a call from Granny. She’s sprained her ankle and needs my help filling in for her as head of the village Christmas Committee. Snowsly is the Christmas Capital of England and the last place I want to be in the lead up to Christmas.
But there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for Granny.
When I arrive in Snowsly, I’m introduced to Celia Sommers who is Christmas’ biggest fan and therefore my own personal nightmare before Christmas. Worse than that, I have to work with her to make Snowsly’s Christmas market a success.
Celia is determined to get me in the festive spirit. It’s not going to work.
It doesn’t matter if she’s smart and funny and easy to flirt with—if she doesn’t stop looking at me with her sparkling eyes and pouting her completely kissable lips, Celia is going straight to the top of my naughty list.
A stand alone romance
The 14 Days of Christmas was an enjoyable, low on angst, high on Christmas cheer, holiday romance that was a delight to read. ~ Sharon – Simply Love Book Reviews
The 14 Days of Christmas is a light, enjoyable, holiday story with steam that reads like a made for television holiday movie. A Christmas hating CEO must forgo his beach vacation to help his grandmother he’d do anything for when she falls and hurts her ankle. Arriving in the town he loved when he was allowed to visit, Sebastian is overwhelmed with everything Christmas including Celia, the Christmas Market chairperson and his grandmother’s right hand woman who happens to love Christmas.
Sebastian and Celia tackle one problem after the other and with Celia’s ideas and Sebastian’s money and connections they race to make sure that the town of Snowsly and its merchants have the best Christmas Market in years despite the suspected sabotage from a nearby town.
This was a light and fluffy read, no angst between the couple other than the fact Sebastian had an end-date in town Dec. 24th which happened to be a day that was ruined for Celia last year when her boyfriend of 6 years left her. I felt they had chemistry, they worked well together, and shared a good deal of their pasts with one another so for a novella, a good bit of character development. While it was a bit predictable, it was still a good time.
The 14 Days of Christmas was an enjoyable, low on angst, high on Christmas cheer, holiday romance that was a delight to read.
