It’s the most wonderful time of the year…unless you’re single and lonely.

Jinx—one of Santa’s elves—is in trouble with the Big Guy. She’s been charged with bringing holiday happiness to Christopher Ragan, CEO of Wondrous Toys. It’s a big job especially when he’s more attached to the bottom of a bottle than helping his fellow man.

She’s got enough trouble without spilling the secrets of the North Pole, but then along comes Natalie Burnes, a newbie CEO of Enchanted Toys and in trouble of a hostile takeover from Christopher’s company. The woman literally crashes Christopher’s vacation plans in a tucked away Michigan cabin---and the sparks start flying.

As if Jinx’s job of matchmaking the toy makers isn’t hard enough, she’s got to stay one step ahead of the North Pole patrol and keep out of sight of the humans. No way is she gonna screw up and lose her magic again. If the humans can’t find happiness and love by Christmas, Jinx forfeits her chance of seeing her true love too. What’s an elf to do?

Editorial Reviews

This review was originally posted to Goodreads as well as on Mrs. Condit's blog at - Becky Condit
HOLIDAY JINX is a well written story with complicated characters who will move you and make you care. I can see this becoming a Christmas classic and, dare I say it, one of the season's TV movies? It has all the elements that make such a story successful.
MRS CONDIT'S RATING: 4 1/2 Sweet Peas! - FranJessca Book Lovin' Mamas
3.5 stars
I recommend this book to anyone who loves Christmas themed books that is contemporary romance with paranormal twist. It was a very much different read, especially with having Santa and the elf, Jinx playing a part. I never knew Santa could be mean, but I guess he means business when it comes to giving away his secrets. Jinx was one mischievous character, but she definitely played a very comedic role in the book. =)
And can I say...I love the title of this book.

    Great Holiday Read

    Jinx is an elf who wants to "make good" after disappointing Santa and the Elfan Council. Her mission: to match two rival toy company owners during the height of the holiday season. The story is filled with characters who want/need to redeem themselves, a lovely message during the holiday season when we all want to be better than we are. A great holiday read.

    Macinnis offered up a heartwarming, funny, made for Hallmark Chr

    Macinnis offered up a heartwarming, funny, made for Hallmark Christmas romance that definitely put me in the holiday mood.

    The tale begins when we meet Jinx. She is one of Santa’s elves and boy is she in a heap of trouble with the Jolly old elf.  To avoid being sentence, Santa charges her with bringing holiday happiness to the CEO of Wondrous Toys, Christopher Ragan. Somehow she needs to bring Chris together with Natalie Burnes, the new CEO of Enchanted Toys. Her task make them fall in love, and not just love but true love. This will prove to be a difficulty task as Chris has already begun a hostile takeover of Enchanted Toys. Santa gave her strict rules not to use her magic. The tale that unfolds is sweet, funny, and full of twists and some very sizzling hot moments.

    Christopher comes off as arrogant, and as cutthroat businessmen that is until you peel back the layers and find a damaged romantic. I really liked Christopher despite the mess he finds himself in. I found myself wanting to hug the little boy in him while swooning over the smexy man he has become. Natalie is full of hope, loyal to the core and has been seriously burned in the love department. She needs Chris’s help to save her company more then she even realizes, but can she learn to trust her heart. Jinx is a meddlesome little elf and her antics made me laugh, especially when they backfired. Other characters added to the tale and help shape my opinions of the hero and heroine in this tale.

    The addition of an elf to this classic storyline made it amusing and in the beginning a little corny, but the tale comes into its own and I quickly got caught up in seeking a happily ever after. The sexual tension between Chris and Natalie felt real and gave way to some steamy scenes. The thread regarding their two toy companies was compelling and I got caught up in saving Enchanted Toys. This was a fun, easy read and I read it in a single sitting.

    I recommend Holiday Jinx to those seeking a fun, romantic holiday escape. Macinnis also writes contemporary western romances, historical and paranormal romances. I will definitely read more of her work.

    I want to thank Lit Connect and the author for providing this ARC in exchange for my unbiased review.
