Merry Winters has the holiday blues. She’s spent the last year learning to love herself, and now she’s ready to find the right guy. But the pickings are slim in Mistletoe, Idaho, and it’s just her luck that the man who catches her eye is the stoic new foreman at her family’s Christmas tree farm. Too bad he wants to keep a 39-and-a-half-foot pole between them.
Single dad Clark Griffin isn’t looking for romance, but he wouldn’t mind a friend to snuggle with on a cold winter’s night. When he signs up for online dating, he doesn’t expect to connect with the sassy, crafty Knottygirl25 and get wrapped up in every message she writes.
But when Merry turns out to be his blind internet date, his surprise causes him to miss his chance under the mistletoe. Can a little Christmas magic give these two a second chance at a first impression?

There’s Something About Merry is chock-full of holiday cheer, some grinches, and the awkwardness of first impressions along with internet dating. It’s the kind of book that just keeps a smile on my face throughout.
Clark isn’t looking for a longtime love; he’s looking for, well, a snuggle buddy. So to speak. And as a single dad, well, his time is wrapped up in his son, Jace, not in a romantic relationship. Merry has gotten her act together. She’s ready to find that one “right guy” to love for a lifetime. The trouble is, there aren’t that many single guys in Mistletoe, and the one man she might have considered certainly proved why he got crossed off her Christmas list. For both of them, I’d have to say, “Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it.”
I loved how their relationship through their online connections was taking off like wildfire, while their in-person confrontations weren’t in quite the same ballpark.
I had fun with a lighthearted romance between two people who thought they knew what they wanted… but were surprised at the result of those wishes. I loved the town of Mistletoe, and I wish there were towns like that close by… okay, maybe not the grinches but still what a fun place it seems to be. Looking to put a Christmas smile on your face, any time of the year? Then check out There’s Something About Merry.
