Madeline is a partner at the local bridal gown shop in Fool’s Gold.  She’s working hard for everything she has and following along with her plans.  Her plans did not involve being a wedding planner, much less working for (or better with) her celebrity crush, Jonny Blaze.  He’s recently moved to the outside of town and he’s a bit lost trying to plan his sister’s Christmas wedding all alone, so the Mayor enlists Madeline’s help.

Their chemistry was almost instant and the development of that was gradually slow.  First as a working relationship that quickly became more of a friendship that then worked it way to more.  I love stories about celebrities falling in love with regular every day people.  The setup of Madeline and Jonny’s relationship was cute and even believable.  I had a harder time with how rushed the ending was in regards to the timeline and how fast we got to the I love yous.  I would’ve preferred an ending where they were dating and see them get to that point at a later book in the series.  But other than that this book was everything I was looking for in a cute holiday read.

If you are looking for steam, then you may as well just keep on walking.  The chemistry is there but although there was a reference to sex, it is a fade-to-black kind of book. I don’t remember if that was the case with the previous books I’ve read in the series or if it’s just this particular one, so I figured I would point that out.

Susan Mallery always tells a beautifully sweet contemporary romance story and this for sure hit that mark.  It was a very entertaining read!
