Christmas in July by Stephanie St. Klaire
McKenzie Ridge Novella Series (Book 1)
When Fifi Gallagher returns to McKenzie Ridge to settle her grandmother’s estate, she finds herself toe-to-toe with…a buffalo.
A toothless opossum.
An emotional llama.
And…a handsome silver fox.
Fifi’s inherited more than just property — and apparently the jackass who lives there — and we aren’t talking about the hammock loving donkey.
Right on the heels of sparklers and the Star Spangled Banner, Fifi’s knee deep in twinkle lights and Jingle Bells when she takes her grandmother’s place as head of the town Christmas Festival…in smoking hot July.
Doctor Jensen Bain — aka silver fox — finds himself standing toe-to-toe with the infamous Fiona “Fifi” Gallagher straight out of Hollywood – threatening eviction. Accidentally sleeping with her certainly wasn’t part of the plan or worth declaring a Christmas in July miracle, despite the fireworks — due to the stick up her pompous…*BEEP*
From big city girl to small town animal whisperer, Fifi’s heart is suddenly torn between Hollywood and Holly-weird. When mysterious letters from a secret admirer, known only as Santa, make her question if she’s meant for the spotlight and couture or wildlife and red checkered flannel.

Big city girl meets small town veterinarian and sparks fly. I enjoyed the banter between the two as they traded jabs. Christmas in July is full of small-town shenanigans that cracked me up. I adored the quirky characters and menagerie of animals which adds to this entertaining read. With each animal that crosses Fifi’s path, her priorities start to shift and her true passion surfaces. Doc Bain is just what Fiona needs as he helps her to realize that MacKenzie Ridge is where she truly belongs.
Thoroughly entertaining read!
