Last Christmas (Small Town Texas Romance Book 1) by [Reeves, Joan] 
Last Christmas Annabelle gave Rick her heart. He stomped on it. This Christmas, Rick's going to pay!

A year ago, Annabelle fell in love at first sight with a mysterious stranger. After a week of unforgettable passion, he walked out of her life. A year of heartache, accompanied by the dirty tricks life can serve up, finds Annabelle back in her hometown, determined to forget the man who still haunts her dreams.

Who should walk into her grandmother’s Christmas party? Why the man who seduced her, lied to her, and betrayed her! He has a new name and a new identity, but his effect on her is as old as time.

Rick Lassiter wants to woo Annabelle back to him—and his bed. Unfortunately, he has two big problems: he can't explain the past and the sweet-tempered, passionate woman he fell in love with has a will as strong as his and a desire to make him pay for breaking her heart. 

Small Town Texas Romance is a new romance novella series by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Joan Reeves. Drop by New Estacado, Texas, and meet the friendly folks in this small town in the Texas Panhandle. Y'all come back real soon!   AMAZON  4.5 stars

It was even better than I expected.  Annabelle was one hurt, angry woman who felt that she had given her heart and then was used and dumped.  Nothing like a woman scorned.  And when he walks in unexpectedly in her hometown?   There's gonna be blood, and it's going to be his if she has her way.
She does come up a few diabolical ideas to make him suffer but things just don't work out the way she planned.   Even when she enlists some of the people of the small town to help her.  Some of them were being unknowingly used in her plan.  Of course this brings moments of humor and some surprises.  The townspeople were fun and Annabelle's grandmother was a great addition to the cast.
There is a surprise at the end of the book that explains more of what Rick has been up to and there will be questions that are answered.    Not bad for a shorter book, there was a lot packed into those pages.  It didn't feel like it was too short to me.
