Christmas has always been Kate O’Connor’s favorite time of the year, but this season—despite her battery-operated twinkle-light earrings—she’s feeling far from festive. In fact, she’s wallowing in a generous dose of self-pity over the loss of her father, the train wreck that was her engagement, and an unsavory setback in her career. To make matters worse, her boss at the Cline & Co. ad agency has volunteered her to be the one-woman welcoming committee for Gavin Whyte, the VIP client from across the pond who could be the key to saving their struggling business. Eager to prove she’s a team player, Kate resolves to show Gavin a good time, hoping his dazzling blue eyes, his delicious Irish accent, and her own propensity for disaster don’t cause her to torpedo the company’s chances of recovery.
A Whyte Christmas. A tall dark and handsome Irishman travelling to and fro to New York while he sets up the advertising for a new drug for the pharmaceutical company he works for. A sweet American woman, a little round, a little frazzled a lot of trouble in the ‘things always happen when she’s around like falling into his lap on their first meeting kinda trouble.’ A horrible ex fiancé, a weird boss and a cute but inappropriate neighbour. Throw all these into a big pot and out pops a lovely read.
A Whyte Christmas has all the elements needed for a Christmas read. It’s got a great name, a fantastic cover and snow, lots and lots of snow. It’s well written and fun. I seriously read this until the small hours but get this, I saved the last 6 % so I could savour the ending with my morning cuppa.
