Review: The Matchmaker's Mistletoe Mission by Jaci Burton

Stranded at the Red Moss Vineyard a week before her best friend's wedding, LA native and professional matchmaker Alice Weatherford is not pleased with her first trip to Oklahoma, or the epic snowstorm forcing her to stay. So much for Christmas cheer. What she needs is a project, something to distract her...and, oh, has she found one in neighboring rancher Clay Henry. Gorgeous, charming, and unlike any other man she's ever met, finding the right woman for Clay should be easy....

Having grown up with the Bellini sisters, it's no hardship for Clay to ride out the storm at their cozy family vineyard, especially since that means spending time with their savvy and smart houseguest. But despite Alice’s best efforts, he's not the least bit interested in her matchmaking....

Alice is the only woman Clay wants. Now he just has to convince the matchmaker herself to give love a chance.
I'm always excited when an author starts a new series. And this year we got two new ones from Burton. Exciting! The Matchmaker's Mistletoe Mission is a sweet, fun, Hallmark movie novella that starts the new series. 

For Alice and Clay it was love at first sight, or should I say lust at first sight. These two really want each other. Not that Alice will admit it at first. In fact, she offers her services up as a matchmaker just so she doesn't act on her feels. 

Silly girl. 

I really like Clay he's smart and hard-working and very sweet. He's willing to whatever it is to make her happy which shows just how much he cares. She feels the same way. They are just perfect for each other. 

Nothing keeps these two apart. And finally, Alice and Clay act on their feels. It's not an easy road. There is a few bumps along the way. When they finally talk, really talk they are able to smooth things out. 

Due to the fact that this is less than 200 pages, the story moves quickly but I felt it was well-written so that helps with how fast the story moves. Well worth reading for the holidays.
