Cookie Girl Christmas by Christene Houston
Molly Hayes has one more job before Christmas and then she can put her plans for a storefront bakery of her own in motion.
What she doesn't bargain for is the handsome young Scrooge who insults her cookies and makes her blood boil. Toss in a heaping helping of snowstorm and a pinch of romantic old Inn and you've got yourself the perfect recipe for a not-so-silent-night.
My Review: 5 Stars!!
Molly is the proud owner of The Cookie Jar, a successful bakery and party planning business. She has dreams of owning her own storefront bakery. With one more job to do before Christmas, she will finally be able to make her dream a reality. She thinks that with a successful business, she will have everything she will ever need. Yes, she's single and lonely but after the devastation of losing her mom, she just can't let herself love anyone again. She lost too much and doesn't think she'd be able to overcome loss a second time. She just did not plan on the handsome, cocky, annoying Greyson Davenport turning her life and plans upside down!
Greyson is no stranger to loss and decides after years of being away, he would spend Christmas with his dad, stepmom and 2 little sisters. However, things are just too hard for him and he closes up. Defensive, hurt and angry, he lashes out at everyone around him, including Molly.
From the very first meeting, there was instant chemistry between our sweet Molly and handsome Greyson. Things got off to a rocky start but the more effort Molly puts in to each party and activity, she slowly starts to melt the ice around Greyson's heart. When he finally opens up to her, it was the sweetest moment. She really doesn't want to like him, but the more she listens to him and gets to know him, the more she wants to open up to him and share her story. Watching the relationship of Molly and Greyson develop was beautiful! These two were seriously made for each other! Life has been tough for both of them but together they can make it better and learn to love and be happy.
Cookie Girl Christmas is seriously one of the best books I have read in a long time! I loved every minute of it! This book is one that I will definitely be reading again and again. Especially around Christmas time! There is a deeper meaning to this story that really helped to put me in the Christmas spirit. It has also opened my eyes to all the blessings I have in my life, both big and small. I am determined to have a heart full of gratitude this Christmas and to spread it around as much as I can! I can't wait to read the next book in this series!
What do you think about my casting?! These two are the perfect Molly and Greyson... in my opinion! ;) Hehe.
