Don't be fooled by the listing of this book as .5 (prequel) in the series. It is a full length book and a thoroughly enjoyable read!

Family businesses are always fraught with conflict and angst, and when your specialty is a couple's special day, then anything and everything can and will inevitably go wrong. But Carina Briscoe is not your ordinary Wedding Event Planner, and her unique talent ensures that those unforeseen glitches are never known by the happy couple, and the stress and pressure is felt only be herself.

So when Carina's only sister decides to flee her nuptials, leaving a church full of well wishers and a business crisis looming, Carina once again goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure nothing ruins the Briscoe Ranch Resort name by tempting fate and the legendary Mistletoe Effect.

The story is wonderfully written with a myriad of interesting characters and a very HOT Cowboy that will not only melt your panties, but your heart as well. I look forward to the next exciting and fun-filled adventure at the Briscoe Ranch Resort.

Briscoe Ranch Resort has a reputation for it's grand Christmas Weddings. For the last fifty years a phenomenon called The Mistletoe Effect has stood the test of time. June and Ty Briscoe, original owners of the resort were married there and since then every wedding performed at Christmas has never ended in divorce. The resort now run by her son Ty and his family is basking in the success of the Mistletoe Effect and Granny June is everywhere with her smart phone taking pictures for Facebook.

Carina Briscoe is the executive in charge of events. She really dislikes Christmas; her life as she knows it ends on Halloween as the wedding season goes into high gear. This year is especially difficult, one of the brides is her sister Hailey, who is bordering on Bridezilla. Plus, an international wedding magazine is at the resort to take pictures. When Hailey storms out of the wedding and disappears it seems the magic of the mistletoe is jinxed. But, her Dad has a solution.

James Decker, known as Decker arrived at Briscoe Ranch ten years ago as a bad boy cowboy looking for a job. He has worked his way to Manager of the stable and lost his wild and crazy reputation. Nothing has diminished his infatuation/lust for Carina over these past years. They both work ridiculous hours with no time to socialize. When Mr. Briscoe comes up with the solution to stop the jinx....Carina and Decker are "fake" married, he see's a chance to finally have some time with Carina. They will live as husband and wife until December 25th. Carina agrees, partly for the sake of the resort, partly for her attraction to tall, dark and gorgeous Decker. Let the season begin!

The descriptions of the decorations, the food, and the gardens make you feel you are there.

I was taken totally by surprise by this book. This is not one I would normally choose. I'm more of a mystery, thriller or romantic suspense fan. But, happily, I let some friends convince me to try, just once, a Western Romance with a holiday theme. I didn't expect to fall head over heels in love with this story. But I did.

First of all, the writing captivated me before I had a chance to connect to the characters. Melissa Cutler takes all those words and phrases and weaves a captivating tale, full of style, perfect flow and pacing. A beautifully crafted story.

The story started strong and stayed strong, with a run-a-way bride refusing to marry her intended....in the month before Christmas. Oh, boy. This is a big problem. You see, the story takes place at the Briscoe Ranch Resort, a resort that specializes in destination weddings...especially at Christmas. And there is a legend....The Mistletoe Effect....a legend that claims that for 50 years every single wedding that has taken place in the 25 days before Christmas at the resort has resulted in a lasting and happy marriage. This legend has made the resort famous and the Briscoe family wealthy. And the runaway bride? She's Haylie Briscoe, youngest daughter of TY and Eloise Briscoe, the owners of the resort.

It. Is. A. Disaster!

With the reputation of the family and the resort at stake, elder daughter, Carina, who accidentally caught the bouquet when her sister threw it in a huff, is called upon by her father to step in and save the day. A wedding has been staged and, by gosh, a wedding there will be! It's the 50th anniversary of the resorts big wedding extravaganza and the guests cannot be disappointed! Family tradition and honor must be upheld.

In this story the Briscoe Ranch Resort is THE wedding destination for couples planning a wedding. Why? It’s because of the Mistletoe Effect. This ranch resort holds a history of couples marrying there in December and who are still happy and going strong. The Briscoe family wholeheartedly believes in the Mistletoe Effect; however, all that is threatened when one wedding turns into a disaster. What’s a family to do to keep the Mistletoe Effect alive? Stage a faux wedding, of course, and hope no one notices.

Carina Briscoe and James Decker are the lucky two who are persuaded by her family to get married. Is this actually a blessing in disguise? These two have been admiring each other from afar for years. It took me a while to warm up to Carina. Let’s just say she’s fiercely loyal to her family and work that she keeps putting her true dreams on hold. Decker is just an overall dreamy cowboy sporting a black Stetson! He really just wants Carina to be happy, but all this “wedded bliss” comes with a time limit.

The thing with marriage of convenience stories is that they have to be pretty convincing to me. I actually thought the beginning of this story was a little over the top. The Briscoe family is very hard set in keeping up a happy image for the sake of the business. Yes, things go a little backward for Carina and Decker, but their romance was fun and made me smile. They even got a little kinky thanks to certain items in a certain basket of goodies! In the end I was convinced. Perhaps the way Melissa Cutler wrote this story and combined it with the spirit of Christmas is what made be believe. Plus, the comic relief from Granny June just made me giggle all over the place!
