THE NAUGHTY LIST
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Anthology
This trio of tales about finding love and a sense of family at Christmastime is a pleasant way to relax after a day of holiday shopping. Although Kauffman’s story wraps up a little abruptly, the anthology ends on a high note with Fox’s tale of reunited social misfits.
In Kauffman’s “Naughty But Nice,” Grif is the corporate frontman for a town-wide makeover. Melody, former big-city lawyer turned small-town baker, is dead set against the plan.
At a Christmas party, executive Christy tells Santa her Christmas wish for “a really good time” in Eden’s “All I Want for Christmas.” That’s before she realizes that Santa is Jonas, who she’s had a crush on since childhood.
“Tattoos and Mistletoe” by Fox finds tattoo artist Charlie returning to Whistler. As a condition of inheriting a B&B, Charlie has to stay there while it is remodeled. She is surprised to learn that L.J., a handsome, muscular contractor, is the nerdy kid she remembers from high school. (BRAVA, Oct., 352 pp., $14.00)
