From the Publisher:

“His family jewels are in danger. And he might not care. Grab the latest standalone Misfit Brides romance from Jamie Farrell, “the next queen of rom-com.” – USA Today Bestselling Author Selena Laurence He’s the Spare Heir of Bliss’s most famous jewelry shop Max Gregory’s family is best known for creating and displaying the infamous Mrs. Claus diamond ring, but here in the bridal capital of the world, Max is best known for having a cursed love life. Not that he believes in curses. Or he didn’t, until he met her. She’s the daughter of a notorious jewel thief Merry Silver’s parents have wreaked havoc on her life. After her last romantic disaster–thanks, Daddy–she’s fleeing the country for a chance at normal. But first, she has to avoid her favorite ex-boyfriend while she gets her mom married off. Again. And their Christmas miracle might be a second chance at love Max was horrified when he discovered why Merry disappeared last year. Now she’s back in Bliss for a wedding, and her father may be after his family’s most prized possession. But is it the diamond Max is worried about? Or is he afraid of losing the only woman who’s ever made him want to settle down? Either way…the family jewels are definitely in danger.”

From the review at Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog:

“I have listened to the entire series on audiobook. Karen does great with quirky unusual characters and this series is chalk full of them. You won’t go wrong picking up it on audio!”

My recording experience: I have loved recording every one of the books in this series (and am looking forward to starting the next – I’ll be recording HER REBEL HEART in the Officer’s Ex-Wives Club series in January) but I think Merry is one of the most unique romantic heroines I’ve had the pleasure of voicing. Jamie joins my favorite comedic romance authors Jill Shalvis and Julie James in the ranks of writing great inner monologues, where characters argue with themselves inside their own heads. I always have a great time with those, but in this book, Merry’s head is also filled with the characters in her middle school adventure series, compounding the fun.  You can definitely listen to this one as a standalone but I recommend the whole series.

Listen to a sample here:
