Tilly Grayson is finally back in the city she loves, New York. She's exactly where she wants to be and is loving every moment as a personal shopper at the prestigious Marlowe Department Store. That is until Brady McKinnon walks in one cold December day. Brady may have been Tilly's high school crush, but he publicly humiliated her back in the day. Something she's never been able to forget. So, when the perfect opportunity presents itself - a Christmas party at a chic New York apartment - it could be time to get her revenge... But has Brady changed? And will Tilly realize it before it’s too late?
Do you ever get to the end of a story or book and think wow, I’m glad that was a freebie? That’s how I felt about I’m Scheming of a White Christmas. The blurb made it sound like a cute holiday romance, and while there aren’t many reviews on Goodreads, they’re positive. My two stars will drag the average down a little.
Tilly had potential as a character. She’s finally living and working in New York City. She has a job that fits her well and working in a department store is a perfect set up for a Christmas story. When the guy she had a crush in high school shows up, she gets tongue-tied, nervous, the whole nine yards. Happily, he invites her to a party in spite of her awkwardness. The catch is that even though now she’s beautiful, in high school she was a bit of a nerd and he was incredibly mean to her.
She and her roommate plan revenge. The problem with the whole story is the revenge plan. It is so juvenile and stupid. I don’t think I could be friends with someone who actually planned and then went through with it. I’m sure it was supposed to be funny, but it just bombed for me. And I don’t see how the guy could still want to date her, even if he didn’t bear the brunt of the prank.
I’m glad is was free.
