Christmas Book Review - Together For Christmas by Lisa Plumley

Author Lisa Plumley revisits the delightful town of Kismet, Michigan with her latest holiday romance, "Together For Christmas."

In a hilarious and heartwarming novel from USA Today bestselling author Lisa Plumley, a down-home diner owner meets a sexy Scrooge--but will it be a match made in holiday heaven?

Casey Jackson doesn't do Christmas. Mistletoe, eggnog, pitchy carolers--it all leaves the L.A. based talent agent colder than a winter sleigh ride. Nonetheless, Casey's been called to Kismet, Michigan, to help get a pop star's holiday special back on track. But it's the diva's sister who's proving the biggest obstacle. Kristen Miller is funny, sassy--and crazy about Christmas. And suddenly, Casey has all kinds of visions dancing in his head. . .
Kristen can't believe that Casey is anti-Christmas. To her, the season is as magical as the thrill she feels whenever they touch. Because even though Kristen set out to teach the charismatic hotshot a thing or two, she's learning some lessons of her own. About letting herself stand in the spotlight for once, about holiday flings that can turn into much more--and about how all you really need for the perfect Christmas is the right person to share it with. . .

Christmas and romance go together like jingle and bells, and this is absolutely the case in Lisa Plumley's charming and fun-filled holiday offering, "Together For Christmas."

Take one Scrooge, add one ultra Christmas lover and shake - the results are either a mess or the beginning of a great relationship - and thankfully, in the case of Casey and Kristen, it's a great, if not a little shaky, beginning of what promises to be a great love.  But they have to overcome obstacles such as her pop-star sister, his troubleshooting job, her financial woes, and his sad past. But a little gingerbread, a little eggnog, and a whole lot of fun and affection proves that love can conqueor all.

I have enjoyed Lisa Plumley's writing over the years, but this is the first of her Kismet, Michigan holiday books that I've read, and I enjoyed it thoroughly!  It was fun, light, and fast - perfect for this time of year!

I highly recommend it for anyone who love contemporary romance and great holiday-themed stories!
