New York Times bestselling author Jaci Burton celebrates the gift of love and the holiday season with a snowy Christmas wedding at the Bellini family vineyard.
Stranded at the Red Moss Vineyard a week before her best friend's wedding, LA native and professional matchmaker Alice Weatherford is not pleased with her first trip to Oklahoma, or the epic snowstorm forcing her to stay. So much for Christmas cheer. What she needs is a project, something to distract her...and, oh, has she found one in neighboring rancher Clay Henry. Gorgeous, charming, and unlike any other man she's ever met, finding the right woman for Clay should be easy....

Having grown up with the Bellini sisters, it's no hardship for Clay to ride out the storm at their cozy family vineyard, especially since that means spending time with their savvy and smart houseguest. But despite Alice’s best efforts, he's not the least bit interested in her matchmaking....

Alice is the only woman Clay wants. Now he just has to convince the matchmaker herself to give love a chance.

This is the first book I've read by Jaci Burton, although I do have some of her hockey romances on my TBR. I have to admit, I wasn't really ready to read a book set during Christmas when it's barely even fall here in PA. But if you are a fan of Christmas-themed sexy, romances, I think this one might be for you!

This book is an adult romance, so there are a lot of sexy times to be had in it. It's a very steamy book with high-level of heat. If that is your thing, have at it. However, if that's not your thing, maybe pass on this one. I enjoyed the scenes and thought they were written pretty well.

I thought Alice's work as a matchmaker was a pretty interesting career path. But, I really didn't get all her hang-ups about how she needed to be in LA for her work. Especially when she says that she can "work from anywhere." Like why can't you just move? It kind of annoyed me. It's not a big hangup, but the one thing that did make it harder for me to like this was the fact that the romance feels really instalovey. Like, relax, it's been ONE WEEK.

Beside my issues with the instalove, I ripped through this book, and I definitely want to read more books from this author.
