About the Book:

Dear Santa,

I do not want Keller James for Christmas.

I will not fall for him, no matter how charming or irresistible or famous he is. I will not be swayed by his skills in the kitchen or by his British accent. I’m going to win the Great Gingerbread Bake Off and no one is going to stand in my way. Not even Keller.

All kisses are off. I mean all bets. All bets are off. And his clothes, those are off too.

Grr, never mind. I’ll figure this out myself.

My Thoughts:

Ginger Winter is in fact a “ginger” who bakes gingerbread. She is the super adorable Winter sister who stars in Jana Aston’s If You Give A Jerk A Gingerbread.  The Reindeer Falls series is comprised of standalone holiday novellas that are a perfect blend of spicy and sweet.

Where to start?  I loved the premise, the plot and the characters!  Ginger is delightful in her whole-hearted devotion to her dreams and her town.  Her foil is Keller James, a celebrity chef and a competitor in the Great Gingerbread Bake Off.  Ginger and Keller have great chemistry, and their banter is flirty and fun.  I melted when Keller gave Ginger the best-ever nickname. Both characters are amply developed, and I couldn’t get enough of either of them.

Ms. Aston’s description of the town of Reindeer Falls made me wish that I could visit.  The town is as picturesque and quaint as any you’d find in a holiday movie.  I enjoyed the delicious descriptions of all the foods prepared for the baking competition.  When Keller is cooking, I was ready to line up for a taste of his creations!

If You Give A Jerk A Gingerbread is an absolutely charming way to kick off the holiday season!
