rogue reindeer, and the ghost of Christmas Right Now causing trouble in my bakery—I can’t help but wonder if we’re meant to be more than friends.
If maybe Clint is the holiday miracle I’ve been praying for…or if all the magic will disappear with the season.
Humbugged is a laugh out loud holiday romp featuring a Marine with a heart of gold and a baker in need of a hero. Complete with the world's most awkward Christmas caroling, a photoshoot with furry friends, and more naughty baked goods than is good or decent.

Holiday Romance | Romantic Comedy | Can Stand Alone
I don't think I've ever read a book that made me when to go to the beginning of the series like this one. Nutquacker? I loved him. Dirty trash pandas? I loved them even more. And the festive feelings of Christmas and joy made me smile and start feeling the spirit of the holiday. This is my first hoorah in Pippa Grant and Lili Valente’s books, and I have a feeling they are soon going to be some of my most read and beloved authors around. The humor is on par with some of my favorite books from Tara Sivec and Meghan Quinn, and the romance that blossoms between the characters is epic. Because of all this I cannot recommend Humbugged more if I tried. It may not be the most serious book in the world, but it grabs a hold of the holiday feels and made me laugh like a hyena- I really needed this! If you’re in the need for a pick me up or just browsing amazon for a new book to read, make sure to check this one out. You’ll not only fall head over heels for Clint and Noelle but also for the secondary characters (who I believe have their own love stories in previous books) but the wacky animals as well. They just may be my absolute favorite characters to date (and the epilogue is PRICELESS).
As you can see, I loved this book. It’s got a little bit of everything in it and a wide variety of readers are can love it just as much as I did. Here’s a few things you need to know:
▶ This is a holiday themed romance and has all the things we love about Christmas.
▶ This is an age gap romance where the heroine is older than the hero, but truthfully you don’t notice the age difference. The only time you can see it is when it’s specifically stated.
▶ This is a romantic comedy. The kind of romcom that will have you laughing out loud through most of the book. Think the Chocolate Lovers series by Tara Sivec. That’s how funny I found it to be.
▶ This book is VERY LOW on Drama. There’s a tiny bit of suspense to it but I certainly wouldn’t call it a romantic suspense because nothing truly sinister is going. You’ll see what I mean when you read it.
▶ This is a lighthearted read mean to be fun and festive. Don’t go into it thinking your going to be reading a serious and angsty novel because you won’t get that here. It’s lighthearted, charming, and just a whole lot of fun.
Have I convinced you yet? I sure hope so! You don’t want to miss this one. I myself LOVED it and am so excited to start the series from the beginning with HOSED. All books are free for kindle unlimited subscribers (added bonus, right?).
