The Trouble with Christmas is basically a Hallmark movie with a little more steam, which is amazing because I happen to love Hallmark movies. There is a brief enemies to lovers thing happening here, but the enemies part doesn’t last long, as well as a fake relationship, are those my two favorite tropes, why yes they are so I knew from the get-go I was going to like this book.
Grady was very gruff, but it made sense given his backstory. He had a ton of baggage, especially this time of year. I liked that Suzanne, in typical Hallmark movie fashion, was chatty and outgoing, almost to an annoying degree. I did feel like Grady agreed a little too easily to the fake relationship. Though I suppose embarrassing paintings make for a decent reason.
This is a quick fun read that is sure to get you in the holiday spirit!
