Review: Merry Ex-Mas By: Sheila Roberts

Merry Ex-Mas (Life in Icicle Falls, #2)Merry Ex-Mas by Sheila Roberts
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Welcome to Icicle Falls, Washington. Small town Northwest, postcard perfect - except when you look into some of the lives of the residents. Unfortunately, a few have been badly burned and hurt by cupid's arrow and ended up with some divorces and exes in the mix. The holiday season has just begun, Thanksgiving begins the book and sometimes you have to look deep for what you are thankful for, better or worse.
Cass Wilkes is planning her daughter's wedding and now has to have the almighty absent ex and father to her children along with the wicked mother and sister and child trophy bride come stay.
Charlene Albach kicked her ex to the curb and paid him (literally) to stay away. With the best restaurant in town, what more could she want - that is until he walks in, saying sorry and making her wonder if people can change.
Ella O'Brien lives in the house with her ex until they can sell it, but with him walking around in boxers she doesn't know how long she can take it. Filled with suspicions of groupies and the whispers of her mother in her ear never quite helped his case, but maybe a little Christmas magic can warm even the coldest hearts.
Filled with great characters, both major and minor - a town I would love to live in. Characters that showed both their best and worst in believable situations and written extremely well - I think this would make a great book to crawl into this season - Enjoy!
