Will their competitive spirits ruin the spirit of Christmas?
When Ben Winters and Lara Cottridge hear that a Vermont radio station is hosting a Christmas contest with a $10,000 prize for a charitable project of the winner’s choice, they seize the challenge. Although strangers, they both are obsessed with all things Christmas and each has their own worthy pet project in mind.
News of the contest creates a lot of buzz, but most participants fall at the first hurdle – a timed online quirky Christmas quiz. The second, a stressful on-air quiz whittles the field down to two – Briarhill Falls residents Lara and Ben who are surprised that they have never met.
As the contest heats up with five further Christmas-themed challenges, the town and state become enthralled by the battle of wits and skill. Soon Lara and Ben realize they have far more in common than a love of Christmas. And far more at stake. Will their competition stand in the way of falling in love?
📝My Review📝: 🎄🎄🎄🎄
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Christmas Contest was a cute enjoyable story. Both main characters are Christmas fanatics; loving every detail about the festive holiday. When they hear about a contest on the local radio that awards the winner $10,000 towards their favorite charity, each believes they could win. After thousands of entrants are narrowed down, it’s Ben and Lara who go for the win. I’ll admit, at the beginning, Lara was a bit cut-throat. Not that Ben wasn’t in it to win it; but he was definitely a gentleman throughout most of the book. The subject of a Christmas contest was a premise I hadn’t come across before. It was refreshing to read something new and entertaining. That said, this was a sweet story. Once Ben and Lara admitted their attractions, the contest became more than just prize money. I’ll say both Ben and Lara’s causes were equally important. And in the end, I was very pleased with the outcome.
I have previously read a few other books by this author, although this is my first holiday romance from her. I truly enjoyed them all and look forward to reading more by Scarlet Wilson. I definitely recommend this sweet, entertaining Christmas romance. Set in a small Vermont town with a lovable cast of characters and a fun, original storyline, I believe you’ll enjoy The Christmas Contest.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
