Review: The Holiday Mix Up by Ginny Baird


My rating: 5 of 5 stars


While You Were Sleeping meets The Wedding Date with a fun Puerto Rican holiday twist in NYT and USA Today bestselling author Ginny Baird's latest romance, in which a diner waitress agrees to be her patron's fake date...only for him to land in a coma and her to be stuck playing his sweetheart with his family all week long.

Lonely-hearted waitress Katie Smith has nowhere to go for Christmas, and a huge crush on her gorgeous diner patron Juan Martinez. So when Juan asks Katie to pose as his girlfriend for holiday festivities at his family's winery, Katie leaps at the chance…that is, until an accident lands Juan in a coma right after giving his folks the "news." Katie knows she should tell the Martinezes the truth, but when they immediately embrace her, Katie is reluctant to let her fantasy of a family holiday go. And then there's Juan's brother, Mateo, whose smile tugs at her heartstrings just right—and who tells her perfect Juan might not be everything he seems.

Second son Mateo Martinez loves his brother, but Juan's plan to "rebrand and expand" Los Cielos Cellars has cost their family too much and put its entire tradition in jeopardy. Katie seems to understand, but she's still committed to Juan…even when Mateo starts to wish her gentle heart and beautiful smile were committed to him instead. With the winery at stake, secrets on all sides, and Juan due to wake up any day, can Katie and Mateo follow their hearts to a Christmas miracle, or will this mix-up ruin their chances?

My Review: 

The Holiday Mix Up gives me another reason why Ginny Baird is one of my go to authors when it comes to fun and entertaining romance novels. This one is no different. I found myself giggling throughout this story. It was a delight to read scenes between Katie and Mateo. I adored the Christmas time setting. The story was one that warmed my heart from start to finish. Overall, a sweet and wholesome story. I loved it.

The Holiday Mix Up will be getting a well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading romantic comedies. As always, I will be looking forward to reading more upcoming releases from Ginny Baird.

I received a paperback copy of Ginny Baird’s The Holiday Mix Up but was not required to write a review, nor a positive one. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
