Casey Lowe is new in town and hiding from her past. Her next-door neighbor, Thad Wagner, is a sexy police officer, who is good with his hands, and his lips, but Casey refuses to get involved with a married man, and Thad can't seem to understand why she keeps pushing him away. No matter how they try to stay apart, something keeps drawing them together. When an unexpected visitor shows up at Casey's house the week before Christmas, her future is on the line. Will Thad figure it out in time to save her, or will Casey become a conspirator to a murderer?
Genre: Contemporary Romance
I've never been disappointed by a Stacy Eaton book, and Tangled in Tinsel is no exception. As with all of Stacy Eaton's books, Tangled in Tinsel is written in alternating first person point of view. I really like how the author will sometimes back track when she changes POVs to enable the reader to see how the OTHER character was feeling when a scene was unfolding. It really helps draw you in and keep you engaged with the story.
There are so many fun misunderstandings in this story that really make it fun to watch unfold. I couldn't wait to find out Corrine's relationship with Thad, and really thought it was fun to see how they interpreted Casey and Brandy's relationship at the beginning.
As with most of Stacy Eaton's book, there is a suspenseful aspect to the book as well. It's a mystery why Casey has picked up and left her old life behind to move to this small Northern town. And its also suspicious why she went from living in the lap of luxury to barely scraping by. All of these questions are answered and the danger is heightened as an unexpected and unwelcome visitor comes to town. And at just the right time to delay Thad's coming to Casey's rescue when she needs him. But in the end, love prevails, all the questions are answered, and Thad and Casey find their way to each other.
Tangled in Tinsel is the first book in a series of novellas due to release in 2016 in the Celebration series and I look forward to each one of them!
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
