I’ll just admit it right up front—I don’t love the holidays.
In fact, Christmas makes me downright cranky.
Call me the Grinch if you must, but if your dad chose that day to decide he was wrong about that whole wanting a family thing, you’d grow up miffed about mistletoe too. Every candy cane, ugly sweater, and falalalala reminds me of the worst day of my life.
So when my uncle—a bigwig network executive—gives me one last shot to salvage my disastrous TV production career on a show called Holiday Homes, I’ve got no choice but to suck it up, head to the small town of Singletree, and fake festive.
The problem? 
Callan Whitewood. The sexy, sullen former pro-soccer player might be the one person on earth who hates the holidays more than I do. After a devastating injury ended his career, he’s left with a limp, no idea what to do with his future, and a cheerless attitude worthy of Ebenezer Scrooge. But I’ve got a TIME LIMIT to convince the gorgeous grump to allow his home to be featured as the pinnacle of the Christmas episode of the show that’s going to save my career.
That is, if I can keep my hands off him… but I’m having a bit of trouble sticking to the task. 
SHAKING THE SLEIGH is a standalone holiday romantic comedy with a satisfying happily ever after, plenty of festive chuckles, some sexy times and a few chinchillas. Maybe a cat. (And there might be a wombat because wombats really do fit into almost any story.)

My review:

This was such a fun holiday read.

A TV producer who hates Christmas is sent across the country to a small town obsessed with Christmas, to the point of changing the town name for the holiday period. Pulling off a successful show is her last chance of saving her job. Her biggest challenge is the former soccer star who just purchased the showplace house of the town, and unknowingly the contract for the house to appear on the show along with the property. He has settled in Singletree to be closer to his only family, his widowed brother and two young nieces.

This book could be a Hallmark Christmas movie, and I mean that in the best possible way. The characters are all fantastic, and I can picture so many of the scenes as if they were a movie. The descriptions and feelings are so clear. Callan and April have such a good story, and I can’t wait to read more about the people in this town.
