Book Review: Reindeer Games by Kenzie Cade

Wassail is a small town that loves Christmas! There are plenty of activities, decorations and holiday whimsy. Dashing "Dash" von Stride works diligently to make toys and prepare for the big Christmas decorating competition amongst fellow shop owners. For most of the participants, the contest creates friendly competition, but there is always that one person who has to take everything a step too far. Frustrated that his display will fall flat, Dash opens his shop one morning to find a gorgeous sleigh, which would be perfect for his entry in the competition. He doesn't know where it came from or who left it there. However, that sleigh will open up a whole new world of possibilities, discoveries and even love.

Reindeer Games is a sweet Christmas tale which weaves the legend of Santa, his elves and reindeer into a more modern setting. Dash is a likable character who I rooted for, and Nik is mysterious and dashing (no pun intended) in every way. The only problem I had with the story was the lack of chemistry between the main characters. We are told they are destined to be together, but I never felt their connection. They are certainly attracted to one another, but in this type of situation when there is insta-love due to fate and/or being soulmates, I have to really believe their strong bond. Unfortunately, I did not.

All in all, this is a nice, relatively uncomplicated, quick Christmas read.

I received an ARC from the publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
