A Splash of Christmas by Mary Manners
When Faith O' Fallon's best friend ropes her into attending a popular reality show audition, the last thing she expects to find at the studio is the love of her life. Ben Ward resents his family for coercing him into holding auditions to snag a date for the holiday episode of their reality show, Poolside Oasis. But when a studio mishap accidentally matches him with the lovely, rambunctious Faith O'Fallon, he finds that sometimes family knows best. This holiday season is filled with the perfect blend of heartwarming surprises splashed with a dose of sweet romance.

I love Christmas stories! A Splash of Christmas a cute story of two friends going to a tryout for a part in a reality show. Faith is only going for support for Avery. Forgetting she promised to go with her she has so much to do to get ready for the Christmas Eve party for the kids at the Mountain Light's Children's Home. How is she going to come up with that kind of money. Food gifts for the kids. They are all ready so far behind with the creep Mr. Ward not showing up last time. Avery gets her to go and waiting for her chance to audition Faith is grabbed by some guy and he lays a big kiss on her. Wow! Mad as a hornet she is hitting at him. How dare you! (although it was very nice). This Christmas is filled with a lot of surprises and romance. Great book! So sweet. Very well written by Mary Manners.
