The Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge
Synopsis: A Merry Texan Christmas
This former all-star never knew Christmas could be so competitive.
Former baseball star Trey Prentice is happily adjusting to life as a bookstore owner in his hometown of Sweet Ridge, Texas. While he loved his competitive and elite lifestyle in New York, he craved a quiet life with friends and family more. As Christmas approaches, Trey is excited to decorate his newest venture and participate in the town’s holiday traditions. He never expected to find himself battling Sweet Ridge’s very own Miss Christmas. Game on.
The only thing librarian Maggie Watson loves more than books is Christmas. She’s even earned the nickname of Miss Christmas because she decorates shop windows and spreads Christmas cheer around town. But this year she’s got some competition. No way is she going to let the cocky Trey Prentice take away her Christmas crown, even though he makes her heart flutter.
When their verbal sparring turns to flirting, Maggie finds there’s more to life than books and Christmas. But will her past insecurities steal her newfound happiness?

A Merry Texan Christmas by Nicole Flockton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book was a fun read. A whimsical treat sure to attract readers who love sweet romance with a Christmas theme. Maggie and Trey had so much in common, yet they were so different at the same time. One thing they both loved though, was Christmas. Maggie is so over-the-top obsessed with Christmas that she is known by her small town as ‘Miss Christmas’. This is a title Maggie takes very seriously. She prides herself on being the best at decorating and she loves to dress up all the store windows in town. Her Christmas displays are known as the best and everyone looks forward to them. But when Trey Prentice, former professional baseball player, returns home and purchases a local book store, Maggie finds she has competition.
Trey is not aware of Maggie and her ‘Miss Christmas’ alter ego. So, when he decorates his store window for Christmas, Maggie is upset, and a bit jealous. The town is amazed by Trey’s display and comments are made to Maggie that maybe she has competition now. You can guess that Maggie and Trey don’t hit it off right away. Truthfully, Trey is not a bad guy. He is not trying to one-up Maggie. He simply decorated his store window. Maggie admits that Trey’s window display was amazing but she was not happy about it.
So, Trey and Maggie are off to a rocky start. But Trey doesn’t let Maggie and her bad attitude about him continue for long. As he finds himself trying to be her friend, he is able to cause Maggie to drop her guard and trust him a little more each day.
Without giving details, I’ll tell you that is was so much fun to watch these two grow as a couple. The pace of their relationship is slow which makes it more realistic. There is a bit of angst as well when Trey is offered a mentor job in the NBL. What will happen to his growing relationship with Maggie if he takes the job? You’ll just have to read it and find out.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Reading this book kept me smiling throughout. A Merry Texan Christmas is the third book in the Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge series. I am looking forward to reading about Trey’s brothers in the previous books.
This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
