Hot British director Dash Everett needs inspiration – and fast. He’s hoping that a Christmas vacation in Sweetbriar Cove will give him everything he needs to break his writer’s block: a deserted cabin, his laptop, and his old friend Jack (Daniels, that is). But it turns out, isolation isn’t nearly as inspiring as the beautiful spitfire behind the front desk…Ellie Lucas isn’t crazy about spending her holidays catering to the arrogant (and sexy) guest in Cabin 4 — and she really doesn’t have time to play muse. She’s ready to leave her small-town behind for a fresh start, but when an unexpected snowstorm sends both their plans awry, she finds that a dash of Hollywood magic is exactly what she needs to see the joy in one more Sweetbriar Cove Christmas.
Dash is looking for inspiration and he thinks he might find it Sweetbriar Cove…he’s hoping that isolation, a deserted cabin, and some Jack Daniels will get rid of his writer’s block. While Dash is looking to stay, Ellie wants to leave. She is stuck running the inn during the holidays and all she wants to do is leave Sweetbriar Cove and do something she’s never done before. She’s not impressed with the arrogant dude in cabin 4 even if he is sexy. Besides, she has a rule and its not to get involved with the guests.
Melody Grace did such a wonderful job with Dash’s character. He seemed so jaded at first, but seeing the small town charm at Christmas made him see things in a different light. I think Christmas spirit can make anyone change their mind about being anti-holiday. I also loved Ellie’s character. I can certainly understand her reasons for not getting involved with someone who isn’t going to stay around. I enjoyed watching her change her mind about Dash.
Of course, something happens that throws them together into an unlikely situation. One-click and find out if Dash got rid of his writer’s block and if Ellie finds what she has been looking for. This is another fantastic book by Melody Grace. As usual, her writing is amazing. I give Holiday Kisses 5 stars and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to read a holiday themed book.
