"[W]ill generate holiday spirit in even the most Scrooge-like reader.” Kirkus Review, Starred Review
All Suzanne St. Michelle wants is an over-the-top, eggnog-induced holiday with her best friend in Credence, Colorado. But when her hoity-toity parents insist she come home for Christmas in New York, she blurts out that her sexy landlord is actually her boyfriend and she can’t leave him—Joshy loves Christmas. The more twinkle lights the better.
Rancher Joshua Grady does not love Christmas. Or company, or chatty women. Unfortunately for him, the chattiest woman ever has rented the cottage on his ranch, invited her rich, art-scene parents, and now insists he play “fake rancher boyfriend” in a production of the Hokiest Christmas Ever. And somehow…she gets him to agree.
Apparently, he’ll do anything to get his quiet life back. At least there’s mistletoe every two feet—and kissing Suzy is surprisingly easy. But in the midst of acres of tinsel, far too many tacky Christmas sweaters, and a tree that can be seen from space, he’s starting to want what he lost when he was a kid—a family. Too bad it’s with a woman heading back to New York before the ball drops…

Amy Andrews - The Trouble with Christmas Book Reviews
Fabulous ChristmasThis book was an early Christmas gift. I loved this book, Grady and Suzanne were a fantastic couple even though they were complete opposites. Suzanne was exactly what Grady needed to get him out of the loneliness that he was stuck in. Suzanne was the type of person that didn’t like silence and had to fill it with chit chat and Grady loved his silence. But what he didn’t realize was that while he thought he was alone and liked that he was actually lonely and Suzanne filled that void for him. Grady was alone and avoided Christmas for 17 yrs and then Suzanne showed up and basically threw up Christmas all over his house. She grew up in a house where Christmas was more about art and not the cozy, warm Christmas that she dreamed of. I loved the way Grady had to go about fixing things with Suzanne after he basically told her to leave and that he wanted to be alone again. It was the perfect way to prove to Suzanne how much she meant to him..Score: 5/5
Artsy ChristmasThis return to Credence has the gaudiest Christmas I've ever experienced. Suzanne and Grady couldn't be more different. An artist who is engaging and a rancher who is basically a hermit. The instant attraction nearly shorted out my kindle but the heat kept me wanting to read more. I loved the opposites attract, fake relationship and while I don't normally love angst in my holiday books, this one felt right. There were some parts that dragged on for me and I would have loved a little more effort from Grady but this hilarity in this book definitely made up for that. I can't wait for more visits to Credence! Everyone in that town needs a HEA!!.Score: 4/5
The Trouble with ChristmasI received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it. First just let me say that I didn't particularly care for this book. But now that I say that just because this book didn't resonate with me doesn't mean that other readers may enjoy it better. These are just my feelings for me personally. I had to put this book down and go on to read other books to get over the way I felt about Suzanne. As I hate to not finish a book, I forced myself to come back and finish it. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book of this series and was looking forward to this one. I was a little disappointed as I LOVE cowboy romance. I really didn't care for Suzanne. I didn't connect with her at all. I felt she was self-centered and egotistical. She gets mad at Grady for not getting back from his morning chores on Christmas and doesn't give him time to explain why he was late. He had a logical explanation as one of his bulls had gotten sick. Later when she finds out why he was late, she then gets mad AGAIN for not telling her. SAY WHAT?! I don't know if I didn't connect with her as I am in my 50's but I felt she was selfish and didn't try to understand what ranch life entailed as she was busying with her things and her worries and didn't try to understand him and his concerns at all. Poor Grady had to almost bend to her will. I cheered when he demanded the paintings back one by one. I also felt that one of the lies about Grady over doing Christmas was okay but then she goes and buys the gaudiest, most tasteless ornaments. Now you can go over board with funny decorations but that wasn't the case here. I just felt it was in poor taste. The only good thing for me was having it written in a dual POV format. This is a spicy book so I don't recommend anyone under 18 should read this..Score: 2/5

Loved itAmy Andrews is a relatively new author to me. This was a fun, entertaining read that had me riveted from the first to the last chapter. There was humour and the banter that flowed was well written and amusing. I loved the main characters of Suzanne and Joshua as they were easy to relate to. I love cowboys and small town romance and this ticked the boxes for me. It was amusing to watch Suzanne and Joshua dance around the feelings that were developing between them. The secondary characters were great and enhanced this feel good story and I am looking forward to reading more in this series. The Trouble With Christmas is a romantic, sweet, heart warming story that is centred around the most magical time of the year. What’s not to enjoy?.Score: 5/5
Entertaining Fun ReadThis is a great entertaining Christmas, the season of good will and holiday cheer read, it’s a laugh out loud hilarious romance with just the perfect mix of sarcasm and snark. This may be a Christmas tale but i firmly believe it will read over and over and loved at anytime of the year. The characters are loveable and the banter they share flows so naturally throughout their story. Suzanne has escaped New York and arrived in Credence to try and get her mojo back and get creative with her art work, she rents a cottage on a ranch and that’s where she meets Joshua the owners nephew. Joshua doesn’t understand why she is there and he really doesn’t want to deal with her but from the moment they meet the banter and sarcasm will have you snorting out loud. I love Christmas and I loved this book and I really didn’t want it to end, i found myself crying from laughter and the story captivated from the first page to the last line. This author has fast become one of my must read authors and I’m sure if you one click The Trouble with Christmas you won’t be disappointed. Celebrate the holiday season with this entertaining read..Score: 5/5
