Christmas in Icicle Falls...
Cass Wilkes, owner of the Gingerbread Haus bakery, was looking forward to her daughter Danielle’s wedding…until Dani announced that she wants her father, Cass’s ex, to walk her down the aisle. Seriously? And, since every B and B is full, it looks as if he, his trophy wife and their yappy little dog will be staying with Cass.
Her friend Charlene Albach arrives at their weekly chick-flick night in shock. She’s just seen the ghost of Christmas past: her ex-husband, Richard, who left her a year ago. He ran off with the hostess from her restaurant, Zelda’s, to start a new life (and restaurant) in Seattle. Now the hostess is history and he wants to kiss and make up. Hide the mistletoe!
And bring out the hot buttered rum, because the holidays aren’t so easy for Ella O’Brien, either. Ella, who’s newly divorced, is still sharing the house with her ex while they wait for the place to sell, and they’re still fighting over all the things they fought over when they were married. The love is gone. Isn’t it?
But Christmas has a way of working its magic. One of these women is about to rediscover love, another is going to remember what’s important in life and the third will find new dreams in the new year. Merry Ex-mas, ladies!
Never have I ever read a book with so much drama and loved it!
When the title reads "Merry Ex-Mas", you had better be prepared for the exes! I loved how Ms. Roberts flowed from one "ex" to the other so seamlessly.Never staying to long with one "ex" to forget where you were at with the other...Perfect spacing!!!!
I have to give credit to Cass as one of my favorite characters....I honestly would never...ever...ever have agreed to let my "ex" stay with me...I mean WHOLLY BOOGERS!!!!!
Cass went through everything including doggie doo for her daughter's wedding and some how no one die??? I think that right there says it all...I loved how strong a character she was...well to a point....Moms will bend when it comes to theirs kids.
My other favorite, was totally Jake....Yep I'm on an "ex" side...but hey, it's not his fault!!! I really wish Ms. Roberts would have lets us in on a few lines to the Christmas song to mama....LOL
(SEE VIDEO BELOW....Too Funny!!!!)

One thing that I have still questioning my mind after reading this...
Did Richard start the fire???? I think the loser totally did!!!
You'll so have to read the book and let me know if you think so too!!!!
