The Trouble with Christmas by Kaira Rouda

The Trouble with Christmas - Kaira Rouda

***copy provided by publisher through NetGalley***

Lily's recently been dumped by her fiance who's marrying someone else this Christmas, so she allows her best friend to "kidnap" her and take her to her family's estate on Indigo Island to regroup and recharge. She bumps into "the most handsome man she's ever seen", Cole, and the rest is history.

Boring, unbelievable (two days ago, she was pining after her ex, depetaling daisies, for f*** sake, wondering whether he still loved her, and then she falls madly in love with the first guy that crosses her path—rebound!), with bland characters and slow pacing.
