All bakery-owner Lindsay Leeds wants for Christmas is for her former high-school crush Sheriff Keith “Bodey” Bodewell to quit playing games. The sheriff has been dancing around asking her out for months and Lindsay is tired of it. His “fake girlfriend” ploy was cute and it was sweet that he recruited her friends to find out what she likes, but enough is enough. She’s a busy woman and he needs to step up or he’s going to lose his shot.
How can a woman who runs two businesses be so clueless when it comes to managing her heart? Bodey has dropped more than enough hints that he’s interested, but Lindsay isn’t catching them. Just when the sheriff is running out of ideas on how he can convince her to be his for Christmas, Lindsay gives him a clue about what it will take for him to get a date. And the answer is pretty simple. At least, it was supposed to be. Christmas is days away and his plays keep failing on a spectacular level.
Talk about mix signals! This is the story of Keith and Lindsay two old high school friends who both have feelings for one another yet don’t know that they do. Both are throwing hints that they are into each other however both are too blind to figure it out. Each one is trying to outdo the other trying to get the other to notice them that they don’t see what’s right before their eyes. While at times I found this annoying I did find it funny at times. It’s like I was constantly shouting “Hello! He/she likes you!!” I loved the banter between these two I found them to be the perfect playful and fun loving couple to be. While it might take awhile for these two to finally see the light when they do man is it magical wonderful!
