A Christmas wager for a lasting love?
Genevieve Munroe is determined to give her newly impoverished family one last happy Christmas, including making peace with their long-time rivals, the Pentercasts. But she is shocked when the handsome oldest son Alan proposes a wager: if he can give her all the gifts from the Twelve Days of Christmas song, without spending a penny, she must marry him.
Alan’s wild gambit is his last-ditch effort to win Gen’s heart. After all, no Munroe would ever consider marrying a Pentercast. But perhaps the joy of Christmas can open her eyes to the man behind the wager, a man determined to turn the twelve days of Christmas into a lifetime of love.

My True Love Gave To Me
This book introduces two families: the Munroes and the Pentercasts. A feud in their past, the oldest Munroe daughter has planned to get the families together to hopefully start a new leaf. The Munroes are financially in debt contrasted to the Pentecosts’ wealth after both of their patriarchs pass away. The oldest Pentecost son wagers a bet with the oldest Munroe daughter to wed if he can’t fulfill the days with the offerings spelled out in the lyrics of a common song: The Twelve Days of CHRISTmas. Lots of interactions, social activities and some terrible situations make this read a delight!
I enjoyed the premise that drove the plot.
This was and ok story but I did drag through out the book.
