My name is Carter Sheppard and I actually like Christmas and my Christmas-themed hometown of Reindeer Falls. In fact, when I learn I have to return home in order to collect an inheritance—my uncle’s dog—it puts life into perspective for me.
Sure, playing professional baseball is great. But it won’t last forever and every player needs a long-term game plan.
And I just found mine. Wrapped up in the feisty, bespectacled package of the town librarian.
Unfortunately, she thinks I’m a player in all aspects of the word, but I’ve got a plan to win her over. Starting with a fake engagement…
Warning: Christmas in Reindeer Falls is more naughty than nice. These stories are over-the-top festive with merrily-ever-afters guaranteed. Novella length for quick holiday binge reading. Enjoy!

This one the main character was a librarian, so I loved that! Although I wasn’t a fan of how she kept saying what a librarian usually wore, because that is soooooo not true. But anyway, in a way, with the fake marriage with the baseball player Sheppard brother, that jumped in right away like many similar romances, and I mean that in a good way! While the first two in this second set of the series were a little more whimsical and silly, this was a little more real. Again, in a good way.
I really liked Carter, and of course there was always the question of why all he got was the dog when his two brothers got the house and the farm respectively. As much as I love dogs, it seemed a little bit less since Carter didn’t really know the dog Rudy, so it wasn’t based on that type of a thing.
But then he and Lexi were a fun match. She started out ready to be friends, but that first meeting, wow, he did not come across as very nice. So that made a bit of an enemies to friends aspect to this one as well. Once he kind of blackmailed her into being his fake fiance though, I fell in love with him. All the dates he set up were so perfect. Whether they were social media post perfect only, or taking her to a bookstore, they were just perfect. I would have to say that Carter is definitely my favorite from this series, and I could really put him on my all-time favorite book boyfriend list.
Once again I loved getting little peeks into the other two stories before this from a different point of view, it just really makes it all complete having these stories kind of taking place at the same time for all three. The epilogue was also perfect to get us a wrap up for all three couples. There were some quotes in the book that I adored, and had to save just to remember how perfect they were for a book lover like myself.
“If there’s books, I’m there. Books are everything to me. Libraries, bookstores, the bookshelf at Goodwill, I’ll stop at all of them.”
“There are books to be fondled, and they hate to be kept waiting.”
