New York Times bestselling author Jaci Burton celebrates the gift of love and the holiday season with a snowy Christmas wedding at the Bellini family vineyard.
Stranded at the Red Moss Vineyard a week before her best friend's wedding, LA native and professional matchmaker Alice Weatherford is not pleased with her first trip to Oklahoma, or the epic snowstorm forcing her to stay. So much for Christmas cheer. What she needs is a project, something to distract her...and, oh, has she found one in neighboring rancher Clay Henry. Gorgeous, charming, and unlike any other man she's ever met, finding the right woman for Clay should be easy....
Having grown up with the Bellini sisters, it's no hardship for Clay to ride out the storm at their cozy family vineyard, especially since that means spending time with their savvy and smart houseguest. But despite Alice’s best efforts, he's not the least bit interested in her matchmaking....
Alice is the only woman Clay wants. Now he just has to convince the matchmaker herself to give love a chance.

The Matchmaker's Mistletoe Mission is the start of the new Boots and Bouquets series from Jaci Burton. This is a novella-length story and is super fast-paced.
When Alice is snowed in at the Red Moss Vineyard before her best friend's wedding, she knows she will go crazy without anything to do. After meeting sexy cowboy neighbor Clay Henry, she sets her sights on putting her matchmaking skills to work for find him the perfect mate. The fact that Clay has already set his sights on Alice only made this story even more fun.
I loved the banter and chemistry from the beginning between Clay and Alice and loved seeing the fall so quickly the more time they spent together. Yes there was a bit of insta-love in this story, and it completely worked for me. I already want to read more stories that will take place at Red Moss Vineyard. Ms. Burton completely charmed me with The Matchmaker's Mistletoe Mission.
