Publisher's Summary

He’s the world’s most alpha Marine and the last man I should be letting jingle my bells this holiday season. 

So why does Clint O’Dell keep running through my thoughts wearing nothing but a Santa hat? And why do I stupidly agree that we should be Christmas friends with benefits? 

Someone must have spiked my eggnog. 
I don’t do Marines.
Or Santas.
I learned my lesson about both the hard way.

But when Clint steps in to rescue me - from a murderous goose, a rogue reindeer, and the ghost of Christmas Right Now causing trouble in my bakery - I can’t help but wonder if we’re meant to be more than friends. 

If maybe Clint is the holiday miracle I’ve been praying for...or if all the magic will disappear with the season. 

Humbugged is a laugh-out-loud holiday romp featuring a Marine with a heart of gold and a baker in need of a hero. Complete with the world's most awkward Christmas caroling, a photoshoot with furry friends, and more naughty baked goods than is good or decent.

Peppermint-flavored awesomeness!

I was waiting in the middle of the night when this was released and finished the same day. I just love all the quirky characters in Happy Cat! I lost count of all the times I snort laughed. Sweet, funny, and plenty of sexy things going on in Happy Cat! Definitely worth the credit!

One-way ticket to Happy Cat, please!

What a great way to wrap up 2019! Clint and Noelle's story was everything I hoped it would be, plus more I didn't realized I wanted. I've been waiting for Clint's story, and he may very well be my favorite O'Dell brother. I'll have to revisit the other guys before I confirm this statement. I'm in love w/them all!

Clint is that big tough meme-worthy Marine, with all the advertised toughness you'd expect. But he's also the sweetest, has such a huge heart, and is so protective of everyone, including Happy Cat's furry population. He and Noelle are made for each other, and I did some serious swooning, squirming, and laughing. This was such a great holiday story.

I always love visiting Happy Cat, with its wonderful array of animals and their quirky personalities. How could anyone not want to go there? Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose do a great job with the narration. Jacob is one of my top narrators!

Funny, Sexy, and worth the read

The town of Happy Cat and all the craziness!! This is a stand alone BUT you get to see all the characters from other books set in Happy Cat then add in Nutcracker the Goose, George the raccoon, and Don Juan the reindeer and you will be laughing out loud. Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose did a wonderful job of narrating all of the fun...and sexy moments. WORTH the credit.

OMG Nut-quaker!

The goose stole the show on this one. Especially the epilogue. Laughed my a$$ off! Brilliant how Jacob Morgan can voice a sexy AF male lead and turn around to deliver a hilarious epilogue from Nut-quaker the goose (cameo with George Cooney). I wish they had included out-takes from the recording of that epilogue since I'm sure it was hard to do without quaking up. ;)

I never knew I needed a goose with a lisp in my life...

I loved everything about this book! The writing is funny AND clever with down to earth and characters that are infinitely lovable. I couldn’t recommend it more!

Also...Jacob Morgan is everything. I’d sit for hours and listen to him read the contents of paint.

pretty good, but not my favorite

I was hoping to enjoy this book as much as the others, but it didn't quite do it for me. The narration was phenomenal and I did love the characters and was amused but it didn't make me laugh out loud like these books usually do.

They saved the best O’Dell brother for last

This is a sweet sexy romcom with a side of slight danger and mystery. This is the 4th book in the series and each book has gotten better with more laughs and more swoons. Virginia Rose and Jacob Morgan were the perfect narrators to make this story even better. Noelle has been running Second Chance Cupcakes in the quirky town of Happy Cat since mid-summer. She has been plagued by various baking disasters since she opened. Clint is the youngest O’Dell brother and a marine. He’s currently stationed in Happy Cat near his family while working as a recruiter. He’s interested in Noelle but as the daughter of a marine, she has no interest in a relationship with a one. But maybe a fling while they figure out what’s going on with her bakery would be okay. This hilarious romance has a little bit of everything - sweet moments, fan your face steam, painful pasts, strong friendships, crazy families, quirky town folks, snort worthy moments, more animal craziness, and so much love. Expect to feel all the feels with this one. While the book is quite funny, it also has three dimensional characters, witty dialogue and an engaging storyline. I love Happy Cat and am sad to see the series end. Too bad there’s not a way to visit my favorite fictional towns.

These animals in Happy Cat are so extra 🤣.

Clint, the O’Dell baby brother finally gets his minute. He’s a hero to a nation & a hero to his hometown, it’s only fitting that he’s a hero to broken hearted new resident. Not only does he solve her mystery, he mends her broken heart. Noelle’s dad is a Marine & she’s vowed not to be with one…but she hadn’t met Clint O’Dell yet. That man could make a reindeer love him 🤪. He breaks down her walls, strikes a deal with her, & then holds on for the ride of falling in love. I loved Clint & Noelle. They were perfect together. And can I just say that it’s so refreshing when characters actually communicate with each other!

The Moody Marine and the klutzy baker.

This is the final full story in the Happy Cat series and it follows Clint, the last and most mysterious and quiet of the O'dell brothers and Noelle, the baker. Noelle is either having a bout of bad luck, or she is cursed. Between delivers going bad to none of her recipes turning out correct, to someone vandalizing her shop and sabotaging ingredients she has enough on her hand. The last thing she needs is a younger man stepping in to try and help her...or does she? Clint is a marine, home for the holidays and has the whole time noticed. All the women, even the older ones, are on high alert and turning Clint into Mr. Meme. He just wants a quiet holiday home to meet all his brothers significant others and meet he nieces and nephews. When Noelle, literally, falls into his arms everything changes. Noelle had a military father, and she knows what it means to be a military family member, she is not interested in that life again. They both have a lot of big decisions to make AND find out who's been messing with Noelles bakery. Is it the town ghost??

This was a perfect end to the happy cat saga. It had the comedy we have come to love with this series and mixed with a little mystery. I sure will miss this crew and can not wait to revisit. As Always Jacob Morgan and Virginia Rose really brought it home for Noelle and Clint (and of course another hilarious animal epilogue)

Christmas shenanigans in Happy Cat

I love a good Christmas book and this one is not only good, it's silly and fun and the final one in the Happy Cat series. Brilliantly read too.

I really would like more, I wonder what it'd take to encourage Lily and Pippa to revisit Happy Cat.

What a rollercoaster

Definitely not to be missed. I could wax lyrical about this story but I wouldn't do it justice. The whole O'Dell family and their wild, weird and wonderful pets make this a fabulous romcom that will leave you in stitches. Thanks Pippa and Lili for this whole series. The narrators did an amazing job of bringing all the characters to life ~ well done Virginia and Jacob. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
