Honey for the Holidays by Jessica R. Patch is the fourth book in her Honeyhaven series. Crockett Baylor and Scout Denman had a nasty break up years ago, but when they need each other this Christmas, they make a plan to fake getting back together. Only things get complicated.
I like Jessica R. Patch’s suspense books, so I was curious to read her holiday book. Going into it, I didn’t realize it was a series. I think I would have enjoyed the story more had I been introduced to the rest of the cast through the other books. They seem like fun characters who make me want to read more about them. But it made me a bit confused for this particular story.
The extra cast aside, Scout and Crockett had enough dynamism that they grabbed reader’s attention right from the start. In fact, Scout had a bit too much for my personal liking. I’m with Crockett in not liking her bullhorn. As humorous as I found it, it did make me question what he saw in her. Yet, isn’t that the way of relationships? Behind the facades both presented, they needed each other.
If you like fake relationships with two strong personalities, give Honey for the Holidays a read. Just like we are drawn to different personalities, these characters may be just the type you love, too. There is a bit of mild language, but I liked Crockett despite that. He has a good heart. And that is exactly what makes this a sweet story.
