A sassy pilot. A cranky cattleman. And a storm that threatens to ruin everything…
For this dare-devil of the outback skies, emotions and Christmas are a no-fly zone for the bush pilot, Monet. Hired as a farm-sitter, she's looking forward to her escape from the festive holiday season.
The only problem is, the farmer has decided to stay home!
Humbug and heartbreak are all the Christmas cheer this cowboy can take, where Tim wants nothing more than peace and quiet to wallow in his misery.
Until Monet and her endless playlists bombard his home.
This grumpy boss had forgotten to cancel her contract—and she needs to go because the longer she stays, the more layers she repairs of his broken heart.
But with a cyclone set to crash on Christmas Eve, the small town of Elsie Creek is in trouble and Monet will risk more than her heart to save the many.
But will Tim let her fly away for good…
Grab a handful of hope and fly away home in this funny friends-to-lovers romantic adventure, in the much-loved Australian Bestselling Elsie Creek Series.

This is the fourth book in the Elsie Creek Series Book series by Mel A. Rowe. This is a friends to lovers romance set in a rural setting in the outback. I really enjoyed this story from its characters, the setting (which was a new one for me), to the storyline. I enjoyed this book so much that I purchased book one to go back and read for myself.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Best Friends Christmas Romance
Tim acted like a spoiled brat when Monet shows up at his ranch to take care of it over Christmas per the contract he signed with her. Yes, he hired he to work, but she didn’t sign up to be his maid after he trashed the place, upset over his fiancé cheating and she certainly didn’t sign up to be his personal chef. He makes so many assumptions in this book about Monet without asking her or anyone close to her. Monet was prickly, brash, and laugh out loud with all noise she uses to wake hung over Tim up, but she has a big heart, flying and landing in difficult situations to save peoples’ lives. She even keeps her family hostel like inn open to stragglers and those stranded from their home. Tim changes his tune when he learns the truth, but my first impression of him left a bad taste in my mouth.
