Jingle Bell Harbor (A Bell Harbor Novella) by Tracy Brogan
Publication Date: October 20, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance
As assistant buyer for the world’s second-largest Christmas store, Kelsey Parker feels like a holiday harlot. She’s contractually obligated to promote the yuletide season. All. Year. Long. And it’s taking a toll on her spirit. But when her clueless, self-absorbed boyfriend goes on their long-anticipated romantic vacation—without her!—Kelsey is beyond disappointed to find herself tromping through the Bell Harbor snow instead of lounging on a tropical beach.
Drew Hampton is considered quite a catch among the Bell Harbor bachelorettes, but when his high school dream girl, Kelsey Parker, shows up at his grandfather’s Christmas tree lot complaining about her love life, he decides it’s long past time to get her under the mistletoe himself.
As things heat up between the two, a surprise visitor arrives, making Kelsey an offer she can’t quite believe. Now she must decide what matters most, and she just may discover the key to her happiness.
I thoroughly enjoyed this fun little contemporary romance. Kelsey had the best snarky humor and when you paired that with Drew’s quiet sexiness? Well it makes for a fun story. The people around them were a blast too, especially her grandmother! She and her friends were a hoot. All around, this story made me smile and was the perfect length for a book-fix.
