Humbugged by Pippa Grant, Lili Valente
Series: Happy Cat #4
Genres: Romantic Comedy
He’s the world’s most alpha Marine and the last man I should be letting jingle my bells this holiday season.
So why does Clint O’Dell keep running through my thoughts wearing nothing but a Santa hat? And why do I stupidly agree that we should be Christmas friends with benefits?
Someone must have spiked my eggnog.
I don’t do Marines.
I learned my lesson about both the hard way.
But when Clint steps in to rescue me—from a murderous goose, a rogue reindeer, and the ghost of Christmas Right Now causing trouble in my bakery—I can’t help but wonder if we’re meant to be more than friends.
If maybe Clint is the holiday miracle I’ve been praying for…or if all the magic will disappear with the season.
Humbugged is a laugh out loud holiday romp featuring a Marine with a heart of gold and a baker in need of a hero. Complete with the world's most awkward Christmas caroling, a photoshoot with furry friends, and more naughty baked goods than is good or decent.
First can I just say that I loved the name of the town, Happy Cat, GA! This was simply one of the most hilarious and heart-warming books I have read in a while. The O’Dell family is welcoming home the favorite younger brother, Clint, who is home from the Marines for a bit. Nothing better than a hunky Marine!
Until you add in Noelle who ends up purchasing a piece of property in Happy Cat after a night of heavy drinking. Figuring that is the place to mend her broken heart, start over and open her cupcake business she heads for it. The O’Dell women wiggle their ways into Noelle’s heart. Even though she wasn’t looking to make friends she finds herself with that and more.
I can’t begin to tell you how much this book made me laugh out loud and just fall in love. The characters in Happy Cat are so wonderful. The town itself and all of its residents are so lovable and just timeless. I mean they have a lovesick reindeer. What is not to love about that? This is a must read!
