Cross Country Christmas by Tiffany King
With the holiday season upon her, Jamie Foster is once again stressed about making her yearly visit back home to Woodfalls, still single. Fate intervenes in the form of Grant Johnson, a boy she grew up with, who catches the same flight while returning home from a business trip.
When a malfunction sends their plane crashing down on the runway upon takeoff, Jamie and Grant decide to rent a car and make the nine-hundred-mile drive home together. Ironically for them, anything that can go wrong does as they face one hysterical hurdle after another.
Christmas may finally bring Jamie the gift of love she has always wanted if she and Grant can manage to overcome a few obstacles along the way. Ho-ho-ho!
I was in a novella-reading mood this weekend, so I when I was flipping through my Kindle and saw that I had downloaded this, I figured I should read it before the we got too far away from Christmas. I'd remembered reading the Amazon reviews about how it was a bit unrealistic that pretty much EVERYTHING went wrong for these two and I'll have to agree with that. The small car and the speeding ticket didn't really do much for the plot. Everything else, though a bit much, made sense with the progression of the story.
Grant Johnson. How many of us know a guy like that. Soo annoying...yet, really hot. The guy you want to not like, but you just can't help it because he's so darn charming! Tiffany King did a great job giving us that guy and showing Jamie's struggle with him. The other characters in the story were cozy people, and I think that's a great way to describe this novella. Cozy. So if you are in the holiday spirit, grab some hot chocolate, curl up on the couch with your blanket and try making your way to Woodfalls with Jamie and Grant.
