This story would make a perfect Hallmark movie. Olivia books a cruise for Christmas to get her mind off of her cheating fiance (who cheated with her supermodel sister). Once on board, things take a fairytale turn and she finds herself dining with Mr. and Mrs. Clause, meeting the man of her dreams, and quickly descending into a sugary sweet Christmas happily-ever-after. This book was not my usual read and felt like it needed some more editing. I found the pacing to be really unrealistic, but it is with Hallmark as well, so I suppose it’s par for the course! If you like light Christmas romances that are void of anything dirty, this might be the read for you!
5 Stars Christmas Cookies on a Cruise Ship (The Perfect Pairing Series Book 1) by Parker Fairchild
Christmas Cookies on a Cruise Ship is the first book in The Perfect Pairing Series by Parker Fairchild. This is a wonderfully written Christmas Romance that I absolutely loved reading. I’ve been in a funk lately and this was just what I needed to restore my spirit. This is a holiday romance that will warm your heart. Plus who doesn’t love a great Christmas story, cookies and a Hot Navy Seal? This is Olivia and Jace’s story. She’s going on a cruise to avoid having to spend Christmas with her sister and her fiancé which just happens to be Olivia’s ex. Jace is on the cruise with some of his Seal buddies and they’re going to a wedding . The chemistry between these two are off the charts. I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

The author did a fantastic job of showing how magical Christmas time can be. I felt like I was reading a Hallmark Christmas Movie. I really enjoyed the evolution of Olivia’s character. Jace’s character had such a great mix of . masculine war hero, loving and funny. Every girls dream. I genuinely loved the storyline and the characters. I’m probably gonna reread this again closer to Christmas.

Christmas Cookies on a Cruise Ship (The Perfect Pairings Series Book 1) by Parker Fairfield is a fun christmas romance, reminded me of a Hallmark movie.
Olivia Chasen, a chemist, and a budding writer, is on a cruise to escape spending Christmas with her twin sister and her new fiancé—ex. Jace is a Navy SEAL. He’s on the cruise going to his friend’s wedding. But unknown to them, they are up for a treat of their lifetime, when Mr and Mrs Claus themselves step in to make a perfect Christmas match.
It is a lovely book to bring on the Christmas spirits. I enjoyed every bit of it.

I don’t typically get into romances…much less Holiday themed ones. However, this one was just too cute to pass up and I’m glad I read it! Olivia and her SEAL are such a sweet story together, from the beginning, middle, to the end. I found myself dreaming along with her, and experiencing a full range of emotions.
If you are looking for some Christmas Magic, pure love, and good feels, this is the book for you!!!

This was a light, sweet holiday read. It would definitely make a cute Hallmark Christmas movie for sure. The interactions between the characters with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus was a unique touch. I really thought it was crafty that Jace actually exists and that Olivia was truly meant to meet him. That piece for the pairing was really sweet and different. There were some details that I felt kind of took away from the main story but overall I definitely enjoyed it.

This was a fun, enjoyable and engaging Christmas romance which really gave me the festive feeling. Olivia decides to go on a cruise to avoid spending Christmas with her twin sister and fiancé, who happens to be Olivia’s ex boyfriend. Olivia is a chemist and budding romance writer and whilst on the cruise she meets her fictional hero character in real life. Jace, a former Navy SEAL Commander is keen to meet Olivia when he discovers he’s her fantasy hero. Olivia is a bit skeptical, but with the help of the other passengers, especially Mrs. Claus and her Christmas cookies and a lot of Christmas magic, hopefully the couple will explore the connection between them. I loved Olivia and Jace and their chemistry really sizzled off the page. The mix of cruise passengers added to the over all feel of life on board and they all brought something to the story. The storyline had me hooked from start to finish and the setting was brought to life by the descriptive narrative. This was a lovely festive romance and it left me feeling in the Christmas spirit.

Christmas Cookies on a Cruise Ship (The Perfect Pairings Series Book 1) by Parker Fairfield is a contemporary romance.
Olivia Chasen, a chemist, and aspiring romance writer, is on a cruise to escape spending Christmas with her lovely twin sister and her new fiancé—ex. Olivia’s Her other passengers now believe she’s in love with a fictional figure, owing to her lonely, inebriated ramblings on Santa’s knee. Jace Morse, a former Navy SEAL, has faced a lot of strange situations throughout his career, but he’s never had the honor, pleasure, or privilege of becoming a gorgeous and clever woman’s dream hero come to life. While he hasn’t met the sultry chemist, he is anxious to learn more about the chemistry that is brewing between them. It’ll take more than Christmas cookies and a little help from Mrs. Claus to bring the charming SEAL and the doubting Olivia together; it’ll need a whole lot of Christmas magic.
I loved this story and the concept of it as well. I loved every page of it. Every chapter was exciting. This is my first book from this author and I can’t wait to read more.

This book is a witty, fun one of romance amidst Christmastime. Olivia is such an easy character to relate to, as is her desire for love. The story brings you into the Christmas spirit (even a self-proclaimed Grinch like me). A pleasant read, the story has sweet love scenes, which is a nice change from some of my favorite genres. There are great comedic moments mixed brilliantly with the not-so-funny moments. If you enjoy Christmas and sweet stories, this is the book for you.

Christmas cookies are yum, yum and this cruise ship has the best ones ever! When Dr Olivia Chasen decided to cruise for Christmas to get away from her sister and her ex boyfriend there is no way she expected to become someones Christmas gift! Santa and Mrs Claus had other ideas though and make sure Olivia ends up having a truly amazing time. Jace Morse was cruising for Christmas to attend the wedding of his closest friends but this cruise would end up being so much more! under the watchful eyes of some oh so funny elderly passengers he starts to romance Olivia and prove to her he is the one for her. This book is full of fun characters and so much Christmas spirit. It is truly a wonderful read.

An afternoon quick read This is a cute cruise ship romance. With Christmas cheer, Santa and Mrs Claus and hot Navy SEALs there was a lot of merriment (and drinking) going on. A couple of times I found the dialogue a little choppy and stilted especially between Olivia and Jace but this didn’t distract me from the story line. A light hearted romance with an abundance of Christmas cookies made this the perfect choice for an afternoon delight.

What a fun book to read as Christmas approaches! Olivia is on a cruise during the week of Christmas to avoid her sister and her new fiancé. As luck would have it, Olivia meets Santa & Mrs. Clause and her life changes for the better and things happen to help Olivia bring out her independent and strong side. Olivia and Jase are cute together and oh so meant to be together. Their relationship has some bumps but they work through it as both of them believe they will be together for a long time. The other characters are fun and made the story fun. Jase’s friends made Olivia feel comfortable and not like an outsider. Overall, I enjoyed the book.

I absolutely love Christmas books like this one, especially around this time of year! It was a perfectly entertaining read, one unlike any other! This Christmas read is funny, witty, heartwarming and so full of cheer and of course the magic of Christmas! I loved all of the detail that the author wrote with and how creative this story was, I’ve read many Christmas books in my time and this one is certainly memorable!
This story starts off fast and strong and doesn’t let up. It was a quicker read for me as there was always something going on that had me unable to put it down. I can’t wait to read more from this author in the future!

I loved this sweet fast read for the Holiday season. Every year I find myself looking for books that will take me away from the stress of it all this time of year and this one caught my eye for sure with that cute and fun cover but the blurb really grabbed me as well. I dove right in with a new author and was instantly happy I gave it a go. It was a light and easy read that was just what I was looking for. Who wouldn’t want a cruise at Christmastime? I also love the idea that this is a first in a series so it looks like I get to anticipate more fun and sweet love stories to keep me cozy and warm. This is one you don’t want to miss this holiday season!

This book was captivating from start to finish. This time of the year, it is normal for me to read stories that remind me of Hallmark movies and have the same premise and similar storylines. This was a breath of fresh air. Meet Olivia – who had gone through something completely unexpected when she discovered that her boyfriend and her supermodel twin sister were an item. They got engaged, and Olivia wanted to be as far away from them as possible for the holidays – hence, the cruise. Time to step out of her comfort zone. After a few too many drinks, she ends up on Santa’s lap telling him that what she wants for Christmas is a fictional character from a book that she is writing. Little does she know that she is speaking to the real Santa – or that her fictional character isn’t so imaginary. Meet Jace, an ex-Navy Seal and the real-life man that Olivia believes she has dreamed up. He is heading to a wedding with his friends but gets a mission from Santa that he cannot pass up. He is charming, funny, kind, and perfect for her in every way. But can he convince her of that before Christmas day? They both have demons that they are fighting, but they can live happily ever after if they can work through their problems together. I loved the retirement community, Jace’s friends, and the playfulness between the two MCs. I am looking forward to more stories like this as the series continues. If you are looking for a heartwarming story that breaks the mold, this is it!

I really enjoyed reading this book and it makes me want to decorate for Christmas and turn on the holiday music! The author was able to mix a holiday feel, Christmas magic, and a Caribbean cruise, and make it feel like one amazing vacation. This romantic comedy was filled with fun characters – Olivia who is on the cruise to avoid Christmas with her twin sister and Jace who is a Commander in the Navy and on the cruise for a wedding of his friends. Santa, Mrs Claus, Jace’s friends, and all the elderly friends are so much fun! I felt like I even got to know the waiters because Jace always calls them by name. The description of the cruise ship, the drinks that were consumed, and even the music playing were all so detailed. I smiled, I teared up, and I laughed a lot as I read. This was a wonderful and feel good read that I devoured in one day!

Christmas Cookies on a Cruise Ship was a sweet holiday romance. One I could see being a future Lifetime or Hallmark movie. I’ll be honest when I first started reading I got really confused. I wasn’t sure what the author was doing. It felt like a book within a book! It all worked itself out in a short time, but still threw me for a loop at first. Olivia running as fast as she can away from family this holiday season, because her twin sister is now engaged to the man she once loved. Jace spending his time on a holiday cruise to watch and be part of the wedding of two dear friends. Little did they know what was up ahead for them. Not in your typical idyllic Christmas setting, this book makes for an intriguing romance with the drama expected for these works of fiction!

This is a fun, sweet story that puts you in the mood for romance and Christmas. Fun characters I’d like in real life, as well as some that are not as likable, but we can relate to having them in our lives! Not overdone on romantic scenes, which I think puts it firmly and fairly into that sweet/fun read category. The writing and editing I think could use a touch more of a heavy hand, but I really enjoyed the base story, under some strange addings on about Mrs. Clause. Overall it was a fun read and I’d read more by this author and in this Perfect Pairings series. I can see myself reading it again closer to the holiday when I need a quick break from all the busy, busy.

What an entertaining book tor read as we head into the holiday season! Santa and Mrs. Claus help Olivia find Jace, the hero of her book. Of course, Santa and his wife, along with their friends, are not quite who they seem. They are some of th feisty seniors on the cruise. This is the most entertaining romance books I’ve read in a while. The plot is fun, humorous and cheerful. The characters are quirky, with personalities that shine like Rudolph’s nose in a fog. This is a book to cuddle up with a warm blanket, some cookies and a cup of hot chocolate. Absolutely adorable. Highly recommend. I would give it 10 stars if I could.

This book is so full of Christmas magic and wonder. Olivia is so lost and lonely when she steps on the Serendipity cruise and my heart breaks for all that she’s been through. When she sits on Santa’s lap and begs him for Jace the hero of the novel she’s writing, it makes my jaw drop to find out that he is an actual man and he is right there on the cruise! Somehow her heart must have known that he was out there and he was hers and she was his. Seeing how Santa and Mrs. Clause help bring them together to get to know each other and to realize that they belong together made my heart so happy. This book is full of so many laugh out loud and swoon worthy moments and Imogene and Grandpa Erwin are adorable too. I really love the way that Olivia found herself on this cruise and finally gets to step out of her twin sisters shadow and have a fairy tale life. Jace is even better than the hero of her romance novel and even though he’s been through some rough patches in life he’s able to pen his heart, cherish her and take a chance on a once in a lifetime love! This is a book I’ll read many times over because I absolutely adored it so much!

Christmas Cookies on a Cruise Ship is the first book in The Perfect Pairings Series. If you are needing a bit of romantic, holiday spirit this book just might help. Olivia decides to spend the holidays on a cruise instead of suffering through visiting her sister and her sister’s fiance. What happens after having dinner with Santa and Mrs. Claus changes Olivia’s life forever. The story is cute and has a lot of fantasy, but fits the bill for a holiday romance. Imagine a Hallmark movie on a cruise ship. There are fun and quirky characters onboard and they add to the story. This was an unbelievable romance but a great getaway from the day-to-day rush of real life. I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Need a holiday pick me up? This book is the perfect thing to get you into the somewhat nontraditional Christmas mood. It took me until about chapter 2 to be completely obsessed and finish the book in one sitting. Jace is a typical hot super-smart navy seal and Olivia was a typical little sister (even though she’s a twin) having several sisters I know what it’s like to be overshadowed throughout life. Olivia and Jace are so adorable and honestly, I’d love to see this book turned into a short-made for tv series for a hallmark or even a hallmark movie. Olivia needed to believe in Christmas magic to make her dreams come true and honestly so adorable.

Nothing gets you started feeling the holiday spirit like a Christmas story. This was a light, fun holiday romance that was very enjoyable. Olivia is intelligent woman whom happens to be a chemist. She goes on a holiday cruise just to avoid her sister and sister’s fiance, whom also happens to be Olivia’s ex. Jace, a former Navy SEAL, is on the cruise as well celebrating his friends wedding. When Jace meets Olivia he is totally drawn to her. I just love this story of Olivia and Jace that is full of love, hope and definitely Christmas cookies!!

“Christmas Cookies on a Cruise Ship” written by Parker Fairchild, is a very sweet and clean holiday romance story. Olivia decides to embark on a cruise in order to escape the Christmas holiday with her sister, who had an affair with Olivia’s boyfriend and is now engaged to him. Olivia feels sad and lonely on the ship, and after too many drinks tells the cruise employee dressed up as Santa Claus her deepest wish. This is where things took a very interesting turn. That night she meets and falls in love with a man, who has the same name as the character in a romance novel she is writing. He is a Navy SEAL, and the majority of conversations steer back to his career. I appreciated that the story brought attention to the difficulties our service members can experience coming back home. Overall the story was difficult to follow and was very unlikely, but it does put you in a festive mood! I enjoyed following along as Olivia’s personality completely changes from sad and insecure, to happy and confident. I appreciated the side characters, especially the elderly veterans, who added some sass and humor to the story!
