About the Author

L.E. Rico didn’t set out to be an author. In fact she’s made a name for herself as a classical music radio host—doing her best to make the music and the composers relevant by putting them into a modern context. It was just a few years ago that she discovered a passion for writing that blossomed into an entire novel. And then another. And another. And, while she still spends plenty of time on the radio, telling the stories of the great composers, she spends even more time composing her own great stories.

A Christmas Wedding In Mayhem Hennessy O’Halloran and Bryan Truitt are one of my favorite couples. I know that when they are around laughter is sure to follow, along with a few tears. A Wedding in Mayhem finds Hennessy and Bryan planning their Christmas Eve wedding. While Hennessy wants something small and simple, Bryan wants big and flashy. He even calls on a former LA client known to put on grand events to plan their wedding. From the start, Hennessy and the wedding planner clash, but things turn murderous when the wedding planner threatens Hennessy’s nephew, Jackson. Now, Bryan and Hennessy find themselves without a wedding planner and less than two weeks before the big day. Hennessy and her sisters are shocked to discover the former wedding planner has cancelled ALL of the previously agreed upon wedding plans. The O’Halloran sisters find themselves having to start from scratch, with only the church still confirmed. Hoping to make up for the wedding planner debacle, Bryan falls on his proverbial sword and asks the residents of Mayhem for help. To his surprise and relief, they agree. But not only do they agree, they all band together to make Hennessy’s wedding beyond special. Get your tissues ready, because the road to the altar promises to be a bumpy one. With spirits and memories of those who have past, the “I do’s” of Hennessy and Bryan prove to be even more sweeter. It should be noted that while Hennessy and Bryan’s love affair started in Blame it on the Bet, A Christmas Wedding in Mayhem can be read as a standalone. A Surprise Baby In Mayhem Jameson O’Halloran and Scott Clark have been through a lot. In Mischief and Mayhem, the couple confessed their love for one another and got engaged. The couple has even been on good terms with Jameson’s ex-husband and Scott’s brother, Win. Surprisingly, the three have learned how to co-parent two-year-old Jackson together. Scott is ready to set a wedding date, but as always, Jameson is putting others ahead of herself. When one of Scott’s friends from Project Peace visits and informs Scott that he’s taking the job previously offered to Scott, Scott starts to wonder if he’s really ready to give up his nomadic life. As the title states, there is a surprise baby coming to Mayhem. Jameson, Scott, and Jackson are in for a quite a few bumps in the road. Jameson and Scott’s story isn’t as laughable as Hennessy and Bryan’s story is. However, don’t think there aren’t some laughable moments, because as long as Jackson is around there are antics. L.E. Rico has written some dark moments in to this story. But she does an amazing job of balancing the story with laughter and sarcasm; hello Walker and Bailey O’Halloran. L.E. has also introduced a new character, who I hope is the future hero to Walker’s heroine. I love L.E. Rico because she makes me laugh and cry. I never want her stories to end. The Mistletoe in Mayhem Boxed Set can be read as standalone. However, for readers like me who LOVE revisiting characters and their lives after “the end”, this is perfect. **Received a copy of the book from the author and voluntarily reviewed.**

Christmas Chaos. This story is about Hennessy and Brian, and the planning of their wedding. I was glad when they began to take control of their lives. I enjoyed getting to know the others in this town and how they helped each other. Baby Bedlam. Now Jameson and Scott find what they are looking for in the forever department. This included children. How they dealt with fears and the very real problems with pregnancy. Both stories had their teary moments as well as a few laughs. This was the first book I have read by this author, and I am intrigued enough to go backward to read the first ones. I received an ARC of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

Best Book(s) ever! I am over the moon in Mayhem! Another insanely good look at life in Mayhem from Lauren. She's a favorite for me, no secret there. The set is The Christmas Wedding which is the marriage of Bryan and Hennie. The second a novella length A Baby Surprise. Let the games begin. Bryan and Hennie: Bryan has am acquaintance from California who is a wedding planner he insists on hiring to help with the wedding in Mayhem. Which is Minnesota, on Christmas Eve. Bryan has pretty much taken over with the wedding planning and really Hennie just wants things simple. Her parents got married on Christmas Eve too and Father Romance married them as well. The backstory there is wonderful. Wedding Planner from hell treats Hennie like she's dirt and ignorant. Hennie doesn't say much but the sisters are getting the gist what's going on. Everyone is still operating, Scott and Jameson pregnant, are getting married. Walker is working the bar along with Bailey. Love Bailey's sass. Jackson is getting older and a total toddler as you will see total terrible two's, tantrums abound. The best part of this book as well as the others is we get to see not only the sisters and their support of each other, but the famous town folk as well. I loved how Father Romance dispensed his own brand of wisdom with his special twist, as well as the memories he shared. Things hit the fan when the planner comes to town and hits on Bryan a little and then shreds the crap out of Hennie's plans including her sisters and has the nerve to tell Father R how the wedding ceremony was going to go. She didn't survive that visit. Hennie finally had enough and between her and her sisters, the witch was back on her broom and back to California where she belonged. Bryan needed restraints, I wanted to smack him several times throughout the book when his need to run things overran Hennie and getting married. Yes I'd say Bryan still has control issues. So, that said, when the witch left, she also cancelled everything she had arranged for their wedding leaving them scrambling to get things done, no dress, no food, not thing one. She did however keep and send one little surprise along to the sisters dismay and Bryan's delight. Insert eye roll here, Bryan wanted them he got them. But have no fear, this is Mayhem and the town pulls together to get everything covered for the wedding, something that Bryan does without the girls knowing about this meeting. But while insanity rules in Mayhem of course, let's throw in a huge winter storm for Christmas Eve just for fun! I love these character driven books. We get the best of both worlds, a great story and relatable people and some crazy on top! Crazy as in almost wet your pants funny, so considered yourself warned, along with those melt your heart moments. I really want to live in Mayhem. I'm a closet sentimental slob and this pushed my sigh button more than once. Could not ask for more! As always a stellar read! Great story Lauren! I loved it! A Surprise Baby: Yowza! Bryan and Hennie are newly married and expecting! Twins! Yes! Scott and James are trying to plan there wedding and things seem to keep getting derailed and that makes for some interesting twists not to mention her pregnancy is full steam ahead. So between these two storylines this was one heck of a read! Once again we get to see the sisters, the town folk, Father Romance, Big Win and yes Jackson too! Bryan once again gets a head knock for deciding to hire a nanny which escalates

This book has no harsh cursing (no f-bombs) and no on-page sex. If those things bother you, there's nothing to worry about here. While Mistletoe in Mayhem is part of a larger series and it is made much better by reading the first two books, you do not have to do that to enjoy this one, Ms. Rico has added enough background to this duo that it can stand alone. But you *should* read them because they're excellent books. This book is so. ridiculously. awesome. There are two stories in this one book and both stories are exactly the kind of “couple update” novellas that I craved when Hennesey and Bryan and Jameson and Scott's (Unca Sock!) stories ended. Ms. Rico's sense of humor and her ability to turn the utterly ridiculous into the utterly hilarious is fantastic. Although there is drama and angst in both stories, there is also a vast amount of humor, community awesomeness, sweetness, and love – the things that make this series so excellent. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Mayhem is my kind of town and I wish it was real because I'd move there in a hot second. I really can't wait for Walker's hinted-at story and *SPOILERS TO THE END OF PARAGRAPH* I am so impressed by Ms. Rico's redemption of Win. I knew she could do it, but I loved the way that it happened – it wasn't some miracle cure or overnight epiphany, and I thought that was really pretty perfect.

I just love small town romance books and this box set takes place in a small town called Mayhem. Both books had really sweet romantic stories. They are both part of a series called the Whiskey sisters. These stories were full of so much fun and so much Christmas spirit. They made me laugh and cry. I found the stories to be fast paced, and very festive. I am going to go back now and read the other books in the series. I can't wait to dive into those stories. Thanks Net Galley. I voluntarily reviewed this book in exchange for an honest review.

I love this series and so was very happy when I saw this boxed set of two novellas catching up with the Whiskey Sisters. Sometimes shorter stories feel a bit rushed, but these two definitely didn't, as they were really just intermingled stories of the town and the Whiskey Sisters and their family, with different lead characters. A Christmas Wedding in Mayhem The first novella is about Hennessy and Bryan and the planning for their Christmas wedding. They got together in the first of this series, 'Blame It On The Bet'. They want to be married on Christmas Eve, well Hennessy does as that's when her (deceased) parents got married, so there's a mad rush to get everything organised before Christmas. Throw in a wedding planner from hell from Bryan's previous big city life and things are thrown into turmoil. Luckily the wedding planner (who still had a 'thing' for Bryan although he didn't know when he hired her) is sacked - Hennessy was very patient, I would have sacked her long before she did - and so then there's a mad panic to rally the troops (i.e. the whole town) to sort the wedding out in time. Really lovely story, funny and emotional - the swans and the dozens of Santas did make me laugh! A Surprise Baby in Mayhem The second novella is about Jameson & Scott (from the second of this series 'Mischief & Mayhem') and the planning for their wedding. Jameson was married to Scott's brother, Win, originally and they had toddler Jackson (holy terror!), but are now divorced. But when Scott came back to town they found they had feelings for one another and are now planning their own wedding. But then there's a little glitch in the form of a surprise pregnancy! So Hennessy (first story) is pregnant, then Jameson falls pregnant, so there are baby hormones all over the place! Another very funny, emotional and engaging story. I've really enjoyed all the stories in this very enjoyable Whiskey Sisters series and can't wait to read Walker's story next.
