Allison Stuart has always been the odd-woman-out of her family. She wears her jeans a little too tight, colors her hair a little too blonde, and instead of going into medicine and law like her sisters, she runs a diner. She’s also the only single sibling left. And while she won’t change her style, and her meatloaf is to die for, thank you very much, she wouldn’t mind her share of wedded bliss. So she makes an early New Year’s resolution: No more meaningless flings.
Drop-dead sexy Luke Hamilton is everything Allison has sworn off. His only serious relationship has been with his five-star restaurant, Le Cygne Noir, in Chicago. When he’s threatened by a lawsuit, Luke decides to hide out in Pineville, Michigan, until the statute of limitations runs out. The small town is filled with Christmas charm, but he can’t imagine living there. Heating things up with the hottie who owns the local diner would make his exile bearable—if he can convince her to give up her ridiculous resolution . . .
I don't know what it is about small-town romance that makes my heart sing but it does. Add in Christmas and you've got me.
It doesn't hurt that I've already been into this series and love it. The Christmas Wedding Swap is book number 4 in Allyson Charles' Pineville series. I enjoy this series so much I was so happy to read this one.
You meet Allison in the prior books so you already think you know her, after reading her story you learn that you had no clue about her. Poor Allison needed to learn that with her family she needed a back bone. Everyone else dealt with her sharp tongue, those who should have gotten it, didn't.
Love Luke, he's a little bit pushy, but on him it works. He's avoiding something that he really needs to deal with but doesn't know how...yet.
As you read the story you'll learn that these two are each halves of one whole. They fit perfectly even if they don't know it right away.
I'm so happy that you get to visit with Colt and Sadie! I really liked them as a couple and they are perfect friends for Allison and Luke. Not only are Colt and Sadie in the story but you also see the Judge and the Christmas tree twins.
The Christmas Wedding Swap is tons of fun with holiday cheer thrown in. The only negative I could say if I was hard pressed to come up with something is that the title which is great, gives away to much.
This story is part of a series and I really think you should read them in order. I think you'll love each of the stories more and the grow and bloom.
If you've read The Christmas Wedding Swap or any other book by Allyson Charles I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
