All she wants for Christmas…

Summer is headed to the Keys for winter break, but what should be a fun-in-the-sun holiday is becoming unbearable. Summer hasn’t been able to stop thinking about her ex-boyfriend, Austin, since their summer romance fizzled, and she can’t stand seeing him at the beach with his new girlfriend….

Now Austin is everywhere she goes. She’s reminded of how much fun they had, how gorgeous he is, and what she really wants is what she can’t have. Will it take a Christmas miracle for Summer to survive this holiday season? Or will the mistletoe work its magic?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed Emotions Sadly I was very disappointed with this novel. I fell in love with the characters in the first one, however I was dreadfully let down with her storyline and ending in this book. This book was only 178 pages and it felt like two. I was so, so disappointed and upset with who Summer ended up with because it wasn't ''the perfect guy'' for her. Looking at the book disgusts me, I can't fathom how Katherine could have brought herself to put the words in the book on paper. I wish I hadn't read this book, or Tan Lines. I hate to say it, however I would not recommend this book. In my opinion it was a waste of my money and my time. I loved the characters in the first book and they grew up acting nothing like their true selves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok... this book was ok. i thought the story line of this book was too simple and easy to guess. this book was also not very detailed or long. it took me 5hrs to read it. i think Katherine could have improved this book by making it more complexed and unguess able. also having the story to be much longer would have been nice too. this book was dull and easy to guess what would happen next. although this book was not so great, i hope Katherine continues to write this series and make it unique. this book wasn't her best, but it was nice to know how Summer and Austin ended up.
