Books Description:

Christmas time is crazy. Falling in love is crazy. Falling in love at Christmas time...that's the best kind of crazy there is. Christmas is rough for Abigail this year. Trapped in her cruddy home town. Working with her brother’s dorky best friend. Plus she’s being forced to wear an Elf costume. Not exactly a recipe for happily ever after...is it? Mistletoe Madness is a sweet Christmas romance novella that will make you laugh and lighten your holidays. Abigail would like a new life, please. Her old life has left her lonely, broke and moving back in with her parents. Not the best way to spend Christmas and kick off the New Year, as a sad, frizzy haired, loser who couldn’t make it in the big city. Wrapped up in helping for the holidays at her big brother’s bookstore–slash–coffee–shop, Abigail is somehow becoming entangled with her brother’s best friend, Jamie. She’s known Jamie since the beginning of time, and he has always been annoying. So can anyone explain why she is starting to develop feelings for him? Why does her stomach fill with butterflies when he gives her that dopey look? How could she possibly fall for the guy who has always been a thorn in her side? Sure, he’s grown into a pretty good looking guy, with really nice dimples. And, sure, he makes her laugh like they did when they were kids. But she never wanted to move back home permanently, and she never asked to get involved with the likes of Jamie Turner. All Abigail really wants is to move back to the city and be an artist. At least, that’s what she thinks she wants. A feel good romance for anyone who loves to fall in love.
