Review: Tis the Season to be Kissed by Amy Andrews

A down-on-her-romantic-luck kindergarten teacher plans to drown her New Year’s Eve sorrows in a gallon of spiked eggnog, but the arrival of her best friend's sexy brother threatens to melt the snow piling up outside the tiny Vermont cabin. 

I'm not even sure where to get started with this book.  It was so very amazing that I think I will go back and read it every holiday season - maybe closer to New Years next time.  Tamara was beyond perfect for a character.  It can be difficult to really delve deep into a personality with a novella, but within the first few pages Tamara was coming to life beautifully as she goes on a drunken rambling to her best friend's little brother.  The "little" brother, Luke, is on a surprise trip home and stumbles upon Tamara using the spiked egg nog to keep warm in the family's cabin.  Luke's personality was just as big and he was everything I could ever want in a hero.

The story is full of humor, as both characters are very intelligent and can use their words to make some very interesting conversation.  The scrabble game was amazing - won't say more or I'll ruin it.  You must go read this book the holiday season.  I don't think I would change a single word.  I need to make a bonfire image because five flames just isn't enough.
