Author: Camilla Isley
Genre: Romantic Comedy
My Rating: 5 out of 5
Chuck and Kate’s used to be real, oh-so-real. But after she broke his heart four months ago, leaving him, it became all just pretense for the sake of their entwined families.
With parents who are best friends and business partners, it’s not easy for Chuck and Kate to announce they’ve split up. But with the holidays looming over them, they can no longer keep pretending.
They head home for Christmas, determined to tell the truth—and end up accidentally engaged instead. The more they try to pull apart, the more the Universe seems to push them back together, shortening the road to the altar. And when just-for-show kisses stir up forgotten feelings, things get even more complicated.
Now, with the midnight hour approaching, will Chuck and Kate’s relationship turn out to be fake or real?
Being such a huge fan of Camila Isley’s writing and having already read and loved You May Kiss the Bridesmaid, I just knew I was going to love Fool Me Twice at Christmas just as much. The story follows main characters and now ex partners, Kate and Chuck as they head back home for the Christmas period. Yes, you may wonder if they are no longer together why they are heading back to their home-town, Bluewater Springs, for Christmas. Well, that is because their families, who happen to be best friends and business partners, don’t yet know that Kate ended her relationship with Chuck several months ago, and she is now seeing personal trainer and all round fitness addict, Marco.
The pair decide it would be easier to tell their parents face-to-face with the intention of breaking the news to both sets of parents as soon as they arrive. Their parents have other ideas and before either Kate or Chuck can break the news, they are both given their own surprise when its revealed that the pair have been made brand ambassadors for the Chocolate Shop that both Kate and Chuck’s parents jointly own together.
Both Kate and Chuck are eager to try and tell their parents they are no longer together, but they just keep getting swept along in all the excitement of things and the situation starts to get out of their control. Both Kate and Chuck go along with a fake relationship and even a fake engagement just to please their families, are is it what they both really want deep down?
Fool Me Twice at Christmas is such a fun read, with brilliantly written characters and a rollercoaster of things that just don’t go right for Kate and Chuck, which will have you laughing along with them. A fabulous and funny read perfect for the festive season.
