The Christmas Backup Plan
Summary: A regimented ex-Army man drives an irresistible wedding planner from Cupid to Twilight in the next Twilight, Texas, novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde.
You are cordially invited to a Twilight, Texas, Christmas Wedding! The town is decorated, the cookies are made, and the stage is set . . . for love.
Wedding planner Aria Alzate has one goal: to give her best friend a perfect day. But after a bump on the head, she’s under doctor’s orders not to travel on her own. So she’s stuck on the road to Twilight with upright, uptight Remington Lockhart in the driver’s seat. True, Remy is one long, tall, Texas male, but the ex-military man never saw a rule he didn’t like—making this one long road trip . . .
Remy has left the military, but the military lifestyle has not left him. The uncertainty this ex-paratrooper encountered during his tour of duty has convinced him that plans—combined with backup plans—will keep life under control. Aria is undeniably tempting, but her fly-by-the-seat of her pants attitude is never going to work.
Then a sudden snowstorm strikes, and these opposites come together in a night of unexpected passion. And suddenly the magic of a Twilight, Texas, Christmas takes hold, proving that sometimes the best plan is to have no plan at all.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
Sometimes Christmas books are huge winners for me and sometimes they are just ok. Unfortunately, this falls into the just ok category.
What I liked:
Well, clearly the cover is adorable. I mean that cute little red vintage style truck piled with gifts and other assorted Christmas treasures- yes please!
Twilight, Texas. It’s a cute setting for a Christmas book- a time of year when you are longing for a little miracle.
What just made this ok:
Ok, sorry if anyone feels like I’m going to ruin this for you- but spoiler alert: Remington and Aria get together and have a happily ever after.
And that is part of what make it just ok for me. I liked Aria and Remington separately and together when they were shedding his rigid ways and her flighty like behavior. BUT when they reverted back to their normal selves- they were kinda a hard sell for me. But I knew they would get together, so I just rolled with the stuff.
Bottom line: Twilight books can be hit and miss for me, and this one was just ok.
