4 Pinkies up…aka 4 stars!
The Nice List by Avery Scott is just the book you need to put you in the holiday spirit!
Cole Weston is about to close the deal of a lifetime and earn the big city promotion he’s been waiting for. All he needs to do is get Francesca Bagnoli to agree that it’s time to close the doors of the dilapidated elementary school that’s she’s fought so hard to keep open. Easier said than done.
Cole’s approach to steamrolling Francesca was all fine and good when he thought she was a grey haired old lady. But, the young, vibrant, beautiful young woman that he actually encountered sent him down a slightly different path. And for Francesca, it’d be a lot easier to hate Cole if he wasn’t so darn sexy and charming.
This book as very cute. It moved very quickly. Not a lot of supporting cast. Not a lot of twists and turns. No steamy scenes (if that’s what you’re into). Just a very straightforward journey to save the day of a rundown old town at Christmas time.
This book is like a Hallmark Christmas movie on paper, and who doesn’t love those! Sweet as a sugar cookie, and a light, fast, easy, fun read. It’s just want you need help kick off the season of spreading Christmas cheer!
