Baking enthusiast Livi Hanson never misses Jean-Marc's online videos. Hoping to save money for pastry school, she agrees to nanny over Christmas break in Switzerland for generous overtime pay.
To expand his audience, pastry chef and internet star Jean-Marc Dobrinsky scores a contract for a network TV slot with one caveat: he needs an attractive co-host who equals him in the kitchen.
When she's invited to bake with Jean-Marc, Livi must prove she has the culinary chops, and Jean-Marc must put aside his pride. Can they rise to the challenge, or will it flop?

When an internet-famous pastry chef gets his big break to produce his own show, there's only one catch--he needs a co-star. Unfortunately none of his previous partners have lasted and his domineering attitude has left few willing to work with him. It may be just his luck he meets an amateur fan with creative ideas and opinions of her own, but partnerships don't always follow a recipe!
This is a short, enjoyable story that tackles some real issues. Both characters need to grow and change and it's satisfying to watch them do it. It's also a fun romp through the world of pastry baking--just try to read this and not come out craving a sweet treat! Pick this up for a light, clean tale full of hope and holiday spirit!
Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review!
Livi and Jean-Marc meet in Switzerland over Christmas. Despite not getting on to start with, can he convince her to help him out with the next step in his career?
A great short read, with a very festive setting.
Livi is a nanny to a demanding family from Boston, and although she is supposed to have the holidays off they push her into going with to Switzerland. Since she does have a cousin there, at least she will have a family connection too. Jean-Marc is a pastry chef, and is being given a chance to have a tv cooking show. Only trouble is that the station wants him to have a partner, and he has trouble playing with others. Fun and quick holiday read. Enjoyed this one and would recommend.
Swiss Mistletoe and Macarons is part of the Christmas Cookies series.
This is a short novella that has so much in it that you will want to pick it up and read it.
The romance and build up in this book is amazing. The author writes in a way that pulls you into the story and makes you want to turn the pages to see what is happening next.
The chemistry between Livi and Jean-Marc is there and feeling the romance budding between them is delicious!
This is the first book I have read by Amey Zeigler. I am looking forward to reading more by this author.
Thank you NetGalley and The Wild Rose Press, Inc for the copy of this book. This is my personal review.
This was a cute, short 'n sweet read.
Livi and Jean Marc were both good (though the key events of the story happen within few days and their relationship was built very fast).
Overall, a good Christmas read.
I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were interesting and made the story flow well. I would recommend this to all. 5 stars
I really enjoyed this book. It was just what I needed during the holidays. Jean Marc and Livi were cute characters in the story. What I enjoyed was it was a novella. Sometimes you do not want a full holiday romance since there are so many out there and you do have a short amount of time to read them all while you are being festive.
I received this ARC through #netgalley and I am voluntarily reviewing this book.
Livi is a Nanny of two young children, she has been supporting her younger sister since their mother died and she has a dream of going to a pastry school one day. Jean-Marc is a pastry chef in need of an onscreen, female partner if he wants to sign on for a network tv spot. I loved these two characters and I think the story would make a perfect Hallmark channel movie!!
