ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND CHRISTMAS by Sarah Monzon, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney #ReleaseDay

  (A Sweet Christian RomCom)
"Thirty-three years old and still waiting for a birthday to come around when I can unwrap the gift of not being awkward in social situations."

Mackenzie Graham has long admired one of her co-workers from afar, but her social anxiety has convinced her that Jeremy Fletcher would never have a single reason to glance her way. (and what would she even do if he did?) Quite unexpectedly, their boss pits them against one another for a coveted post-holiday promotion in order to generate a plethora of Christmas cheer within their graphic design firm. Yikes! Jeremy is definitely looking her way.

On the one hand, Mackenzie needs the extra income to fund her mother's long-term care while on the other hand, Jeremy, who is fully supporting his niece and nephew, views the promotion according to his long-term plans) as a way to save money for the twins' college education. As Jeremy and Mackenzie progress in their efforts to demonstrate leadership and teamwork, they discover that working together may prove more beneficial than competing against one another . . . . though the process proves deliciously (don't be surprised if you get cravings for holiday fare) entertaining,  . . . "all is fair in love and Christmas".
An utterly delightful, witty, and inspiring story with the sort of romantic moments that one might expect from a story that practically oozes with "visions of sugar plums"  . . . dancing in the office?

" 'For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord,' . . . Had he organized his present and future so much that he hadn't allowed for God showing up with blessings?"

BackCover Blurb:
Two workplace rivals. One festive competition. And a romance that upends it all.

Every December two things are guaranteed for graphic designer Mackenzie Graham--Christmas celebrations and the annual promotion at her workplace. Those two things are by no means mutually exclusive. In fact, the better an employee is at harnessing the Christmas spirit, the more likely they'll win the new job. With her social anxiety, Mackenzie never thought she'd be a contender in her company's holiday competition, so how exactly has she found herself dueling her workplace crush with wrapping paper tubes and using tinsel as her weapon of choice for a much-needed raise?

Jeremy Fletcher's life is meticulously planned out, including how to win this year's promotion at work. Not only will the new position fulfill some of his career goals, but as a single guardian to his twin niece and nephew, he needs the salary increase to support his family. Jeremy has barely noticed Mackenzie Graham around the office, but now that she's his rival, he can't stop thinking about her. Her quirkiness intrigues him, and he's afraid that if he can't get his head on straight, the promotion isn't the only thing he'll end up losing to Mackenzie.
