This story has it all: humor, suspense, & romance!
The Trouble with Christmas is a delightful book written by Debbie Mason. It is the first book in the Christmas, Colorado series and I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series. This story has it all - humor, a bit of suspense, and of course, romance.
The story centers around Madison Lane who works for a New York development company contemplating bringing a resort to the economically depressed community in Christmas, Colorado. After crunching the numbers and determining that a resort is not feasible for either the company or the town, Madison ends the negotiations with the mayor of Christmas. However the owner's son throws her under the proverbial bus and feeds fuel to the media outrage. In an attempt at damage control on behalf of the company, Madison travels to Colorado to smooth the town's feathers. After a parade of very comical unfortunate events, Madison is forced to stay a month in Christmas, during which time she falls in love with the small town and it's people, and in turn, the town's folks fall in love with her too. The best part of this story are the well developed secondary characters - especially Nell McBride, the meddling senior citizen.
I listened to the Audible version of this book narrated by Becket Royce, who did a fantastic job. She clearly differentiated between male and female voices and really brought the characters to life. I especially enjoyed her portrayal of disgruntled teenagers, and the busybody Nell, which made me laugh out loud several times. Simply put, I highly recommend this audiobook!
