About the Author
New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander was an award-winning television reporter until she discovered fiction was much more fun than real life. She turned to writing full time and has never looked back. Victoria grew up traveling the country as an Air Force brat and is now settled in a very old house in Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two allegedly grown children and two bearded collies. She firmly believes housework is a four-letter word, there are no calories in anything eaten standing up, procrastination is an art form, and it s never too soon to panic. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Into this mix a former true love, Grayson Elliott, unexpectedly drops in after 11 long years apart. Their history: After a lifelong friendship, he belatedly realized he was in love with her, but waited to declare his love until two days before her marriage was to take place. She turned him down, instead of fighting for her, he departed to America, where he focused on making a lot of money and finally he's returned just in time to attend the house party, albeit uninvited.
Once Grayson realizes what Camille has planned, he decides he will join the house party even though Camille repeatedly asks him to leave. He refuses to leave, however, and this so unsettles Camille at every turn, she's twisting and turning - away from the prince, straight into the arms of her former love.
Okay, I must confess to liking Grayson a lot, but Camille and Beryl? No, not especially. In fact, Beryl seemed a cold fish and Camille just didn't have any endearing qualities that drew me in, which left me without an anchor to hold onto for my interest in the romance. If I were to rate this book purely on romance, I would have to give it one star. However, the storyline was unique and Grayson and his cousin - Win... Well, they had "it" if you know what I mean.
Funny and sweet, this book will make you laugh and tug at your heart. Ms Alexander adds just the right amount of romance, love and giggles to this book. You'll enjoy the escapades of Camille and her ragtag cast. An easy read, you'll finish this one before you know it. It's amazing.
I found no issues with this one.
I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I have some friends I can see doing this..lol. ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~
Young Grayson Elliott did not confess his feelings of love to Camille until the day before she was to marry. From the kiss they shared that day, Gray could tell that she returned his feelings. Yet he had been too late. He spent the next eleven years on business travels and amassing his fortune. But this year Gray is spending Christmas with his family. Gray tells himself that he is over his feelings for Camille and that seeing her around the area would not be difficult. He should have known better.
Camille has always had some sort of impulsive adventure going on; however, this time her scheme borders on outrageous! Be that as it may, Gray never ignores an opportunity when it presents itself. So when Camille introduces him to Nikolai, Gray insinuates himself into her household by announcing that he has come to spend Christmas with Cousin Camille. Let the games begin!
**** FOUR STARS!Read more ›
The theme running throughout the novel is one of second chances - not just for Grayson and Camille, but also for Beryl and her husband, for their parents and the sisters' relationship with each other and their errant father.
Camille and Grayson are very likeable characters, and the farcical element of the story is handled deftly and with a sure hand.
A smile-inducing holiday read for any time of the year.
