HOLIDAY WITH A TWIST

HOLIDAY WITH A TWIST                                  SHANNON STACEY

After a messy breakup, Leigh Holloway is ready to start her life over. Until her parents put the family home on the market and call her back for one final, memory-making Christmas. The last thing she wants to do is deprive her mom of the perfect holiday, so she'll lie her way through the visit and worry about her future in the New Year. Too bad the only bar in town is owned by a guy she seriously wronged in high school. 

Leigh's best friend broke Croy Dawson's heart, and Croy knows it was Leigh's fault. They've never liked each other, but Croy isn't cruel: he'd never turn away a pretty woman in need of some family-Christmas fortification. He doesn't expect her to drink just enough candy-cane martinis to tell him her secrets—and he definitely doesn't expect to get caught up in her holiday madness. 

Despite the surprising love and laughter, Croy and Leigh can't escape the truth: he can't walk away from his family obligations and she has a life and career to reboot. But anything is possible if your holiday comes with a twist…

MY REVIEW:
     Very short sweet Christmas story.  Of two old childhood friends who stopped when he was dating her BFF.  She and the BFF go off to college and the BFF dumps both her and her friend Croy Dawson the first week of college.
     It wasn’t until Christmas break when Leigh Holloway came home alone when things got real for Croy and he confronts Leigh.  He felt if she hadn’t talked his girlfriend into going away to college after all they wouldn’t have broken up after four years of dating.  Words were said and a friendship broken.  Leigh not coming home after that except major holidays every once not wanting to run into him.
     Until now, her parents were selling the family home to move into a condo.  Their three girls needed to come home and go through their rooms and boxes of keepsakes.  Leigh had her job cut out for her she was going to have to lie the whole time she was at home or at least dodge answering them.
     Except on her first night out she is desperately needing some Christmas cheer in the form of a drink.  But, her parents now have a dry house due after the day she had trying to get there to her parents.  Her father has high blood pressure so her mother had to give up her wine too. 
     Since her day was so, so bad she needed to have a cocktail for sure.  You see her flight to her parents had been delayed, her SUV she had order from the rental was delayed & she got a clown car, and facing her family who told her it was a dry house for the holidays.  Worst of all her oldest sister tells her the only bar in town is the Dawson’s and guess who the bartender is?  You got it Croy.
     See how these two manage their first meet and greet.  Turning an awful dismount of friendship into working one.  You will see how it affects those around them.  I give this: 4 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.
