Local Author Sheila Roberts has a few fun holiday reads, one of which was just re-released with a new cover: Merry Ex-Mas: Life in Icicle Falls. This is the second book in the Life in Icicle Falls series that takes place here in Washington State. Don't let that scare you away! This book reads just fine on its own, but once you read it, you will want to go back and read Better Than Chocolate so you can get even more Icicle Falls!!!!
Fall in love with Icicle Falls and the residents and exes who live there. One is getting ready for a wedding and a few exes are stumbling through the changes brought to life via their relationships. Meet Cass, Charlene and Ella, and follow along as they deal with the holidays and their exes, which ends up bringing readers a fun-filled and heart-warming Merry Ex-Mas.
Cass's daughter is getting married just before Christmas, and she wants her father to walk her down the isle... to make life more challenging, said father comes complete with a new young wife!
Charlene's ex is back, after cheating on her and moving away. He has come to the realization that what he had is worth fighting for - now, is Charlene going to give him a second chance?
Ella and Jake are recently divorced, and circumstances find them both still living in the same house with the goal of selling it before they go their separate ways, but you will laugh and cheer as things get crazy for Ella and her doubts and Jake with his determination.
See what happens as the holidays approach and these exes decide that they may not want to be exes any longer!
I hope you get to read some fun holiday books this year! Start with Merry Ex-Mas, and also check out Sheila's other fun holiday books: The Snow Globe (one of my favorites - I reviewed it a while back and will link to it as soon as I find it!), Nine Lives of Christmas and On Strike For Christmas.

About the Book:
Christmas is the best time of year in Icicle Falls, Washington. But this year it's not so merry—for three of its residents, anyway….
Cass Wilkes has been looking forward to her daughter Danielle's Christmas wedding—until Dani announces that she wants her father, Cass's ex, to walk her down the aisle. Seriously? Even worse, it seems that he, his trophy wife and their yappy little dog will be staying with Cass….
Her friend Charlene Albach arrives at their weekly chick-flick night in shock. She's just seen the ghost of Christmas past: her ex-husband, Richard, who left a year ago when he ran off with the hostess from her restaurant. Now the hostess is history and he wants to kiss and make up. Hide the mistletoe!
And bring out the hot buttered rum, because the holidays aren't easy for Ella O'Brien either. Ella, newly divorced, is still sharing the house with her ex while they wait for the place to sell. The love is gone. Or is it?
Watch as Christmas brings all kinds of surprises!
