Merry Smith has her days filled – between her time-consuming job, her loving (but hectic) family and the holidays right around the corner – she doesn’t have time for anything else.
But apparently, her mom and younger brother think she does.
They signed her up for a dating website and while Merry first thinks it will be a complete disaster…she actually meets a really nice guy.
But then she finds out who he is real life and her heart plummets. This could never work…or could it?
This was a really sweet holiday book, if a bit predictable and a smidge bland.
I did really love Merry’s family.
Her bustling mother, well-meaning father and her special-needs brother really helped bring this book to life. Her brother was just the best and I loved how respectful (and realistic) his disability was shown to be.
This book is relatively short (220ish pages), and I felt like the romance was a bit rushed because of that.
I would’ve loved for the love to have had an extra 50-100 pages to fully develop but at the same time I didn’t mind it too much.
All in all, this was a short and sweet book!

Sometimes ‘predictable but entertaining’ is perfect!
