Review: One Night with a Nutcracker by Jana Aston

☆☆➹⁀☆ 4 stars ☆➹⁀☆☆

About the Book:

My name is Jake Sheppard and I’m ambivalent about Christmas and the Christmas-themed town I grew up in. But when I find out my late uncle left me an old barn and acres of land, the decision to return home to build my dream golf course is an easy one. 

Imagine my surprise when I arrive and find out I have a squatter. 

An incredibly sexy squatter, with wavy blonde hair, green eyes, a free spirit… and a herd of goats. 

Sutton hates my guts. Apparently evicting a non-paying non-tenant and her goats weeks before Christmas is grounds for war. 

Except Sutton’s version of war includes flinging her clothing at me and, as it turns out, I might be in way over my head with this girl… 

Warning: Christmas in Reindeer Falls is more naughty than nice. These stories are over-the-top festive with merrily-ever-afters guaranteed. Novella length for quick holiday binge reading.

My Thoughts:

Jana Aston’s One Night with a Nutcracker is an adorable holiday rom-com. While this is book 5 in her Reindeer Falls series, it is a standalone novella with references to secondary characters in other books in the series. The characters are fun and engaging, and what’s not to love about a town dedicated to celebrating the spirit of Christmas.

Lexi is an entrepreneur. By happenstance she is a goat farmer who makes amazing goat-milk soaps. For the longest time, she and her adorable goats were living scot free on some open space on the outskirts of town. Only problem is that the open space is actually owned by a hunky Shepherd brother named Jake. When Jake and Lexi meet, it is lust at first sight!

Ms. Aston’s sense of fun and humor shine through in her writing, and fans can definitely see a little bit of the author in each of her heroines. Nutcracker was a quick, fun read with minimal angst and maximum entertainment…and goats!
