I fell in love with books at a young age, and growing up, whenever Dad realized I’d disappeared when I was supposed to be working, he usually found me hiding out somewhere with a book. Writing evolved from reading, and the first story I ever finished was in high school, about my celebrity crush. I got an A on that creative writing ‘assignment,’ though I’m not sure my teacher ever read all 187 pages. I started writing again in my mid-twenties, and no matter the journey my characters take, the end result is always the same—Happily Ever After. After years of being a travel agent while writing on the side, I am now able to live my dream of being a full time writer. I’m still an avid reader, and also a fan of movies with that HEA. I live in my native Wisconsin with my husband and kids, and in my limited free time, I enjoy gardening, canning, and visiting my parents in Northeastern Wisconsin (Up North) at the family cabin on the lake.

I started at the first book in this grouping and just kept reading. STACEY JOY NETZEL had me laughing in this one. Boy oh boy do I know folks just like Derek and Lisa. Always have to beat each other but we always wondered deep down....was something MORE going on? This book is good. Like really good. We get to see why Derek acts like he does and why we never see Lisa around. BUT put these two in the same room BOOM in a good way.
This is an older series that has been re-released and I am glad that it was. This is the last (or is it??) of a series based in Wisconsin about a family, romance and Christmas. Lisa and Derek competed with each other through high school with one always trying to beat out the other whether it was athletics or academic. When Lisa returned for the wedding of one of her brother's to Derek's cousin years later the competition was still there in more ways than one. But Derek had a new question - why Lisa was staying in her hometown and not returning to this glamorous life that her family and others thought she had. Obviously something had happened to her and Derek was bound and determined to find out what. Lisa needed his help in more ways than one, not only to reignite the spark that was always there, but to keep the drive and passion going that made her who she was. They just needed a little help from Santa and the mistletoe to realize everything that they wanted and needed had been right in front of them the whole time. Each other.
The third of this series was actually the best in my opinion. It still was boy meets girl and wham; however, there were the moments when this one seemed more real life--would have liked itthis developed more and into a full length novel. Lisa's fears have crippled her and only on more knowledge and reflection does Derek detect the real problem. Derek addresses it rather bluntly, but effectively and the way is cleared for a good relationship between Lisa and him as well as for Lisa to find her potential. Loved the Riley and Walsh families and setting; the novella was most enjoyable. A sweet read.
Stacey stricks again with another winner.Her characters are heart warming,realistic,and full of mischief.The families in this series are warm hearted,loyal,and Santa magic brings couples together when things look like no way.You will enjoy each story and look forward to the next with great anticipation,
This was a fantastic book. Loved Derek and Lisa. They' d been rivals since high school. She beat him every time they competed against one another. When she e returned for her brother's wedding, it appeared nothing had changed. But things weren't what they seemed where Lisa was concerned. And Derek was still attracted to her. Sparks fly before the truth emerges and they have a chance to be together. Loved it.
A great series for the season. I love when books are written in a series and the charactors intertwine in each book. I just hate it when they are finished. This book is about Lisa Riley and Derek's story. In high school Lisa and Derek competed in everything. They meet later at her brother's wedding and pick up where they left off, competing again to raise money for a rescue center.
