Reviewed by Jessica Dunn

Casey Jackson is a fixer; he is called in when projects are
not running smoothly and when filming schedules are off.
Casey comes in figures out what the problems are and gets
the project back on tract sometimes that includes shutting
down a project and letting the financial bakers cut their
losses. Casey has been called in to "fix" pop icon Heather
Miller's holiday special and he will do what needs to be
done to get the project back on budget and schedule even if
it means babysitting Heather's little sister. According to
Heather it's her little sister that is causing all the
trouble. As Casey arrives to Heathers small home town Casey
can't believe his eyes, Kismet Michigan looks like a Norman
Rockwell Christmas Village. Ugh, Casey doesn't like
Christmas actually that is putting it mildly Casey hates
Christmas. Then Casey steps into a small diner that is the
worst of his Christmas nightmares come to life and comes
face to face with the "little sister" he has been sent to
take in hand. Turns out Heather's little sister owns the
Christmas nightmare diner and despite her Christmas apparel
and chipper holiday spirit Casey is taken with her.
Kristen Miller is trying hard to stay in the holiday spirit
and enjoy her favorite time of the year while baking pies
for her diner. Unfortunately Kristen's sister Heather has
come to put on a holiday special show bringing with her
paparazzi and a production team. Kristen's life has been
turned upside down now Heather has some hatchet man coming
in to try and shut down the show and begs her to babysit
this Casey Jackson. Kristen loves her sister dearly but
keeping the so called fixer out of Heather's hair while
trying to run a business and participate in all her
favorite holiday traditions is not what Kristen would have
signed up for. Then so called "fixer" walks into her
business telling her he doesn't "do Christmas" and doesn't
like pie. Kristen is enraged what kind of person doesn't
like pie or Christmas for goodness sake. Kristen tries to
stay annoyed with Casey but it the more time she spends
with him she is tempted by his good looks, charm and kind
heart she doesn't know what to do with herself.
TOGETHER FOR CHRISTMAS is a delightful romantic tale that
will have you in the holiday spirit in no time. Author Lisa
Plumley does a great job developing the characters with
witty banter that is sure to win your heart. The detailed
description of Kismet made me long to pack my winter
wardrobe (if I had any, not much need in Arizona) and spend
the Christmas season with Casey and Kristen. I highly
recommend TOGETHER FOR CHRISTMAS to anyone who enjoys
holiday novels; you will be swept up in the holiday spirit
and on the edge of your seat waiting to see if Casey can
open his heart to Kristen and just maybe love Christmas as
much as Kristen does.
In a hilarious and heartwarming novel from USA Today
bestselling author Lisa Plumley, a down-home diner owner
meets a sexy Scrooge--but will it be a match made in holiday
Casey Jackson doesn't do Christmas.
Mistletoe, eggnog, pitchy carolers--it all leaves the L.A.
based talent agent colder than a winter sleigh ride.
Nonetheless, Casey's been called to Kismet, Michigan, to
help get a pop star's holiday special back on track. But
it's the diva's sister who's proving the biggest obstacle.
Kristen Miller is funny, sassy--and crazy about Christmas.
And suddenly, Casey has all kinds of visions dancing in his
head. . .
Kristen can't believe that Casey is
anti-Christmas. To her, the season is as magical as the
thrill she feels whenever they touch. Because even though
Kristen set out to teach the charismatic hotshot a thing or
two, she's learning some lessons of her own. About letting
herself stand in the spotlight for once, about holiday
flings that can turn into much more--and about how all you
really need for the perfect Christmas is the right person to
share it with. . .
