One week with one little girl—an angel, according to my staffing agency. Acting as the short-term nanny for a single dad should have been an easy way to make some extra cash. Until I show up for my first day and face off with a demon disguised as a seven-year-old girl wearing a red tutu and matching glitter slippers.

Oh, and her father? My temporary boss? Maddox Holiday. The same Maddox Holiday I crushed on in high school. The same Maddox Holiday who didn’t even know I existed. And the same Maddox Holiday who hasn’t set foot in Montana for years because he’s been too busy running his billionaire empire.

Enduring seven days is going to feel like scaling the Himalayas in six-inch heels. Toss in the Holiday family’s annual soiree, and Christmas Eve nightmares really do come true. But I can do anything for a week, especially for this paycheck, even if it means wrangling the naughty, impressing the nice, and playing the nanny.

My Review: *****

 

The Naughty, The Nice, and The Nanny is the first Holiday brothers book. Maddox Holiday has returned to Bozeman, Montana, with his daughter Violet, a seven-year-old precocious, some might say, terrorist since she is fond of knives. Maddox grew up in Bozeman with his parents, Keith and Hannah, and his twin brothers Heath and Tobias. Their family is in the real estate/building business; everyone except him. After college, Maddox became involved in Hollywood and married Cece, his college girlfriend. When things didn’t work out with Cece, he thought moving home to raise his daughter was the best idea.

Natalie Buchanan is a governess or nanny; also from Bozeman, went to school with the Holiday Twin Brothers, Heath & Tobias; Maddox was two years ahead of them in school but still small-town living everyone knows everyone. Natalie was on vacation when she received a phone call from her agency, the owner, Carol, a last-minute job came in for one week. A single dad vacationing here from Califonia, his nanny quit, his daughter is an angela, needed one week, and was offering a ton of money. Stuck and desperate, she agreed to take the job; the child was an angel after all. Let the Christmas hijinks begin!

A Christmas-themed novella, the story is about one small-town- family centered around the Holiday’s Christmas Party.

THREE BELLS, TWO BOWS AND ONE BROTHER’S BEST FRIEND

I pride myself in being grounded. Sure, I’ve had my share of childhood fantasies. Winning an Oscar. Winning the lottery. Winning an Olympic medal for an athletic talent I have yet to discover. But the only fantasy I ever thought might actually happen was winning my brother’s best friend.

Heath Holiday.

My crush on him has ebbed and flowed over the years, but the day I started working for his construction company was the day I smothered it for good. Sort of. Mostly. It was on my to-do list. Making it a priority would have been easier had he not arrived at his family’s annual Christmas party looking ridiculously handsome in a suit.

Then he kissed me. We stepped into an alternate universe and he kissed me. I assumed the next day I’d just be Guy’s little sister again. The office newbie. Our kiss forgotten. Except he keeps showing up at my house. With gifts.

A gold bracelet carrying three jingling bells. Two dainty jeweled earrings, each shaped as a bow. And finally, he brought himself.

One brother’s best friend, asking if I can keep a secret.

 

My Review: *****

Three Bells, Two Bows, and One Brother’s Best Friend, Holiday Brothers, #2, is all about Heath Holiday.

Stella Marten has a way of embarrassing herself whenever Heath Holiday is around; yes, she has crushed on him since they were children, yes, Heath is her brother Guy’s best friend, and yes, she works with him, but that doesn’t deter her from falling in love with him.

A laugh-out-loud, hilarious Christmas novella that will keep you joyful through the Holiday season!

 

 

A PARTRIDGE AND A PREGNANCY

There are a lot of places I’d rather spend Christmas Eve morning than on a cold, snowy sidewalk outside someone else’s home. I’d kill to be sitting beside a fireplace, drinking cocoa, wearing flannel pajamas and reading a book.

Instead, I’m here, standing in front of my one-night stand’s house, working up the courage to ring the doorbell and tell him I’m pregnant.

I hate that term—one-night stand. It sounds so cheap and sleezy. Tobias Holiday is neither of those things. He’s handsome and caring. Witty and charismatic. And once, a long time ago, he was mine.

Our one-night reunion was only supposed to be a hookup. A fling with an old lover. A parting farewell before I moved to London and put my feelings for him an ocean away. How exactly am I supposed to explain that to Tobias that I’m having a baby? His baby? Maybe I could sing it. He always loved the silly songs I made up in the shower.

Three French hens, two turtle doves.

And a partridge and a pregnancy.

 

My Review: *****

A Partridge and a Pregnancy is a twist on a Twelve Days of Christmas Carole, and it’s also the last novella about the Holiday brothers. Tobias Holiday, an architect for Holiday Homes and twin to Heath, is having a crisis about the college sweetheart who got away but returned six weeks ago. Dinner together ended in Tobias’ bed, and now Eva Williams is pacing outside his house in flannel PJ’s stuck. The pregnancy test in her pocket is about to change everyone’s life.

The three Christmas theme Novellas about the Holiday Brothers is something that Hallmark should check out for next year’s Christmas movies.
