Nobody does Christmas like Miranda Hamilton, and now that she finally has her chance to chair Magnolia Bay's tree lighting and the cotillion, which benefits her late mother’s breast cancer foundation, this Christmas is shaping up to be the best ever. That is until her childhood nemesis Logan Mauldin buys his way on her committee and starts making plans of his own.
Logan Mauldin loves to get under Miranda's very sexy skin, and it's only fair. She's been getting under his since long before their first kiss at 13. Logan’s the last man interested in co-chairing a Christmas committee or participating in a sexy bachelor auction, but since that night he interrupted Miranda on a date and cornered her under the mistletoe, he can't stop thinking about her. Or vying for her attention and bugging the hell out of her.
Christmas cheer isn’t the only thing that heats up between the Miranda and Logan, but, thanks to a lie that is as much her fault as it is his, he loses the woman he’s loved since forever. Logan will need a Christmas miracle for Miranda to forgive him. A grand gesture to melt her heart and win her back just in time for Christmas.
Just a lovely southern tone comes out of this tale, it makes me miss the Carolinas.
You can just about hear the drawl, just waiting someone to say 'bless your heart', in that tone only a southern lady can.
Logan is fun, loyal, and determined to get Miranda. Miranda is perfectionist, who fights against what her heart, and body, wants, leading on two men, and can't make up her mind. She's afraid of her feelings towards Logan, being heartbroken once by him, with no intent from Logan.
The story is humorous, warm, and cute. Lots of traditions, memories of the childhood when Logan and Miranda grew up together. I wish there would have been a bit more into the story, into the developing relationship. But overall, very Christmassy tale.
