Review and Book Tour of Humbugged!

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Humbugged
Authors: Pippa Grant & Lili Valente
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 10, 2019
BLURB

He’s the world’s most alpha Marine and the last man I should be letting jingle my bells this holiday season. 

So why does Clint O’Dell keep running through my thoughts wearing nothing but a Santa hat? And why do I stupidly agree that we should be Christmas friends with benefits?

Someone must have spiked my eggnog. 

I don’t do Marines. 

Or Santas. 

I learned my lesson about both the hard way. 

But when Clint steps in to rescue me—from a murderous goose, a rogue reindeer, and the ghost of Christmas Right Now causing trouble in my bakery—I can’t help but wonder if we’re meant to be more than friends. 

If maybe Clint is the holiday miracle I’ve been praying for…or if all the magic will disappear with the season.

Humbugged is a laugh out loud holiday romp featuring a Marine with a heart of gold and a baker in need of a hero. Complete with the world’s most awkward Christmas caroling, a photoshoot with furry friends, and more naughty baked goods than is good or decent.

Like Hitched (see my review here), the novel that precedes Humbugged in the Happy Cat series, Humbugged also has some plot holes and the beginning chapters, especially those in Noelle’s pov, made my attention drift, frequently, because there was so much “telling” exposition. It took me a very long time to get into the novel and I was setting it side more often than reading it—despite the fact that I adored Clint O’Dell, who, without a doubt, is my favorite O’Dell brother. I blame it on the fact that Noelle never came to life for me, not the way that kookie but lovely Olivia or impetuous Hope did in the previous novels. However, once the plot was sorted out and came to life, I became far more engaged.

Humbugged depends a lot on raunchy humor and its cast of eccentric and very human animals from George Cooney to Nutquacker to Don Juan, a reindeer who shows up out of nowhere.

But there are some heart-warming, steamy, and fun moments that may just be the escape you need from this hectic holiday season or really any time. While I didn’t enjoy as many laugh-out-loud moments as I had in previous novels, I was still entertained.

Humbugged is definitely for readers who are enamored with the Happy Cat series. Others may want to begin with the first in the series, Hosed, so they can keep all of the characters straight.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
