20 Books For Christmas Review # 11: Fool Me Twice at Christmas by Camilla Isley


My Interest

Once again, I needed an audio. This one was available, was new, and was only 5 hours long–great for me drives on errands. I had a big errand day, so just listened to the last 1/4 at home while having dinner alone. Plus, #20BooksForChristmas–though I had thought I’d only do 10 Christmas books. Whatever! They’ve been the perfect thing for unemployment.

The Story

Kate and Chuck come from families joined at the hip…well, more or less joined. The two parent-couples are business partners in a chocolate company. Kate and Chuck grew up in the chocolate factory playing together while their parents worked. They’ve had the holidays together all their lives. Their parents hoped and prayed the two would grow up to marry–in fact, they thought that really was the plan.

Now, however, the couple have broken up, but can’t bear to tell the parents. When the chocolate company’s new visual marketing guru wants to use Kate and Chuck’s “authentic” love story in the promotion of a new chocolate, the pair must fake it. But, will the fakery work? Will fake pre-marital counseling with a pastor make it all into bliss or continue the bust?

My Thoughts

While I’ve rarely if ever heard an American says someone is “rubbish at X” or use “cheeky” in the British way–so what! It’s fiction! This is a fun, light, rom-com perfect for the often over-stressed days of the Christmas season Enjoy laughing along with Kate and Chuck’s predicament and enjoy it. Enjoy the very real emotions it generates for love, family, and the season. This was as sweet a holiday rom-com as you can hope to find!

My Verdict

Fool Me Twice at Christmas by Camilla Isley is on sale for only 99 cents on Kindle right now, too!
