Cheesy Romance Monday (4)

Welcome to this week's Cheesy Romance Monday wherein I review a romance novel that might have otherwise not been featured on my blog.  Up this week:

Holiday Hideout
Vicki Lewis Thompson, Jill Shalvis, Julie Kenner
Subgenre: Contemporary

Holiday Hideout is a collection of three short stories that take place over Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.  All three stories are connected in that they all take place in the same cabin, owned by Jillian and her husband who believe the cabin has magical powers to make people fall in love.  To test the theory, they rent the cabin out to collect as many date points as they can to prove their theory.  I loved that all the stories were linked like that!

My favorite story was definitely the first, "The Thanksgiving Fix."  I think I liked it in part because not too many books take place during Thanksgiving, but mostly I liked it because it was a really good story.  Beth books the cabin to be alone for Thanksgiving, wanting to avoid her family's "Why aren't you married yet?" questions.  When Jillian sends the local handyman over to make sure the plumbing is working properly, they really hit it off.  The story was both cute and sexy, a great balance. 

These stories were great for this time of year and all of them were sexy and steamy.  Definitely a romance must-read for this holiday season.  Check it out!


  1. I love this feature, hah! Sometimes all you really want is a feel-good, happily-ever-after story. "Cute and sexy" sounds like a great read. :) Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  2. Ah, I love this comment! I'm glad someone out there likes my feature. It's true, sometimes you just want a happily-ever-after cheesy romance. :)


I enjoy reading each and every comment, thanks for leaving them!
