Cookies and Hallmark Movies

You know those shirts that say, I just want to bake cookies and watch hallmark movies all day? Well I want one that says I want to eat cookies and read Lucy McConnell Christmas books all day. Infinitely better than a Hallmark movie. Her books have all the feels, wit, chemistry and Christmas magic.


“When Chloe Winston finds herself crushing on her business partner, she tamps down the flame of attraction because falling for Troy Martin could spell disaster for their business. But, when Troy needs a fake fiancee for his sister’s Christmas wedding, Chloe agrees to fill the role, if only to show him what he’s been missing out on all these months. Little did she know that her eyes would be opened to the joys of spending the holidays surrounded by family in the heart of Snow Valley.

Troy isn’t looking for the love of his life, heck, he isn’t looking for love at all—a fact that grates on his mother’s last nerve. In order to avoid yet another lecture about the necessity of marriage for life-long happiness, he makes up a fiancée. Chloe is perfect because she doesn’t pose a threat to his bachelorhood. But when she shows up in a red dress that would stop traffic and gives him a kiss that stops his heart, he can’t help but wish she was his fiancée for real. 

In order to keep Chloe in his life, Troy will have to come clean and risk alienating his tight-knit family. He’s not the only one risking something though. Chloe has to be willing to turn her heart over to the guy she’s been protecting it from for months. 

Things heat up between the business partners but they’re going to need more than mistletoe to get out of this one.”


This book took us back to Snow Valley, which I’m pretty sure is one of my favorite fictional locations. I love how she makes the family and friends real and the situations relevant but not over the top filled with drama. I loved watching Troy’s opinion of marriage change, and how he realized that with the right person you could want all you never thought you needed. –M.V.
