Model Christmas by Tressie Lockwood is a contemporary story with characters that don’t fit the standard mold and I found this appealing. For example, Renee is a plus sized model who finds herself the object of affection to a wealthy man who hides his wealth as if he is ashamed of it. Renee is oblivious to her charms and disbelieving that someone as beautiful as Keith would find her attractive. Keith on the other hand, does not use his family’s name or wealth to propel or further his station in life. He is completely comfortable being anonymous. Most people would kill to have the name and trust fund he has access to but he staunchly refuses to tap into those resources until forced to do so. The progression of Renee and Keith’s courtship is refreshing because it reminds me of how courting used to be when the girl would play hard-to-get. When their sexual encounter finally happens Keith brings out the vixen in Renee she didn’t even realize she possessed. Overall, Model Christmas is a very entertaining novel and the subplot with Keith’s family added a fun factor that had me cracking up.

Renee Lerner’s life is a series of misfortunes but her luck changes when she secures a job as a plus size model. No one is more surprised than Renee because she views her ample curves as something to hide rather than flaunt before a camera. Caught in her thoughts, Renee missteps on a snowy pavement and is rescued by a handsome private investigator named Keith Greenwich. Keith is immediately taken by Renee’s striking looks but her detached reception cools his pursuit. Eventually Renee requests his help to track down a stalker. Keith renews his pursuit but Renee initially has a problem with him being White, she has never dated out of her African-American ethnicity. However, Keith’s soft persuasion wins her over and she opens her eyes and heart to love him as a person. The Christmas holidays, which for a long time have been a period of great sadness for Renee, are now filled with hope, laughter, love and much joy.
