MERRY Ex-MAS by Courtney Walsh, Reviewed by Nicole Cook

If you are looking for a fabulous Christmas romance with a Hallmark movie type of feel, this is the perfect book to get you in the holiday spirit! Courtney Walsh is my favorite author of fun Christmas small town romances, and she does not disappoint! She is a master at creating swoony heroes and fun flirty banter with a small town feel. If you only read one Christmas book this holiday season, Merry Ex-Mas should be at the top of your list!

Imagine returning to your hometown for Christmas after many years away and discovering your ex-boyfriend in your childhood house for an extended holiday visit and celebrating Christmas with your parents. An awkward and difficult situation for sure...especially with unresolved feelings and an ex-boyfriend still as handsome and charming as ever. Mix in social media hijinks as Marin is competing for a position as a permanent morning show host, and you have an entertaining fun story that is pure joy to read!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author/publisher and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine.

BackCover Blurb:

I haven’t been home for Christmas in eight years.

But that’s about to change. This year, I’m traveling to my small hometown to convince my producer to make me the permanent host of Good Day Denver.

The plan: Charm viewers by sharing my favorite family Christmas traditions, and in turn, get the likes, clicks and shares to land the job.

Not the plan: Running into my ex-boyfriend.

In my house.

For Christmas.

But here he is, a guest of my mother, who apparently had more trouble letting go of Max Weber than I did.

Unfortunately, he is as handsome and charming and talented and annoying and frustrating and flirty as ever.

Even more unfortunately, he seems to have a plan of his own—to convince me to give him a second chance.

Which is not happening.

There’s just one problem—my viewers love him. More than that, they love us. Me and Max. My ex.

The boy who broke my heart.

The boy I now have to fake flirt with to win over the hearts of my viewers.

But it’s not their hearts I’m worried about. . . it’s mine.

Merry Ex-Mas is a sweet, small town, second chance romance with a dash of not-so-fake flirting, a tiny bit of enemies to lovers and just enough forced proximity to make things sizzle.
