Add to Goodreads:
My name is Carter Sheppard and I actually like Christmas and my Christmas-themed hometown of Reindeer Falls. In fact, when I learn I have to return home in order to collect an inheritance—my uncle’s dog—it puts life into perspective for me.
Sure, playing professional baseball is great. But it won’t last forever and every player needs a long-term game plan.
And I just found mine. Wrapped up in the feisty, bespectacled package of the town librarian.
Unfortunately, she thinks I’m a player in all aspects of the word, but I’ve got a plan to win her over. Starting with a fake engagement…
My ARC Review:
The last novella in this second collection of Reindeer Falls books, which involves a fake relationship, a professional baseball player and a librarian!!
This last novella focuses on Lexi, the last of the trio of girls, each have their own novella story. Lexi is a librarian and lived next door to the Uncle that has died and is leaving all his stuff to his nephews, the illustrious Sheppard brothers. Carter has inherited Rudy off his Uncle, Rudy being his dog, currently being looked after by Lexi, who is miffed at having to hand the dog over to him.
At this first meeting Carter is on the phone when Lexi takes the dog round to him, and Carter is terribly rude to her and acts like a horrible playboy jock. Unfortunately this stuck with me and it took me a while to warm up to Carter, which I did eventually as he does turn out to be quite nice, but he really did deserve a smack for his initial appearance.
Carter is trying to improve his image for a sponsor deal and makes a deal with Lexi that if she will be his fake girlfriend / fiancé then he will give her Rudy the dog!
A sweet and cute novella with a bit of steam in there as well, but it’s a tad difficult to connect to Carter as we don’t get his POV just Lexi’s – playboy sports stars don’t do it for me so this didn’t help!
I enjoyed the ending when all three couples have a get together. Over a good festive read from this second collection of Reindeer Falls, I look forward to seeing what Jana comes up with next!
