The Reindeer Falls Collection Volume 2 by Jana Aston
Narrated by Erin Mallon
The Reindeer Falls Collection volume 1 by Jana Aston was one of my favorite audiobooks when it came out in 2019. I was so excited to go back for a visit that I couldn’t wait for Volume 2 and re-listened to Volume One again. I thought I would need to to remember stuff, but honestly Volume 2 features all new characters. And while they mention the characters and places from the first volume, you didn’t need to read them first (though you should because they were so good!).
Three hot brothers return to Reindeer Falls when they receive an inheritance from their uncle. They all start out with a bit of conflict from the three best girlfriends—the Sheppard brothers may be hot but they’re kind of assholes…aren’t they?
Elves with Benefits
Maggie is the local “Christmas Cop”. Since Reindeer Falls is is a Christmas Tourist destination, everyone on Candy Cane Lane is expected to decorate for the holidays. If they don’t, you can count on Maggie, who over-the-top LOVES Christmas, to give a citation. Ryan just inherited the house next door to Maggie. He just wants to finalize the estate and get back to Chicago. He has no intention of decorating, but Maggie won’t take no for an answer.
This one was adorable in a really over-the-top way, but it kept me smiling the whole time.

One Night with a Nutcracker
Sutton is a bit of a hippie who lives in a trailer on a local farm with goats. It all started when she rescued one, and then she found another…and another… Now she makes goat’s milk soap and her business is doing pretty well. That is until Jake Sutton shows up and informs her that she is squatting on HIS land that he plans on turning in to a golf course.
Sutton’s free ways are just perfect for loosening up Jake’s buttoned-up lawyer persona and I just LOVED the goats!

The Bachelor on the Shelf
Carter Sheppard is a professional baseball player. The only thing his uncle left him was a dog, but he didn’t mind returning to his Christmas-themed hometown to come get the dog. He has also been tasked with cleaning up his reputation as a player. Lexi, the town librarian, is the perfect girl to help with that task. But can their fake relationship turn real?
I loved that Carter was a reader and loved his town. This one was super sweet, and I loved the shy girl and the player together.

Erin Mallon is so amazing, especially at silly and sweet romance. Her voice is SO PERFECT for Jana Aston’s words that the narration brought this read up to 4.5 stars for me. Plus her man voice is just soooo sexy!
The Down & Dirty:
Rating: 4.5 Stars, 5+ Narration (I feel like the books were sexy, but I don’t remember how much!)
