Review: A Mistletoe Christmas by Carla Cassidy, Cathy McDavid & Marin Thomas

In the small Texas town of Mistletoe, the pretty little plant definitely lives up to its reputation for eliciting kisses!

Santa's Mistletoe Mistake by Carla Cassidy

Little Libby asked Santa to bring her mommy a prince for Christmas: cowboys need not apply. That means cattleman Jake Hanson is definitely out. But the Man in Red works in mysterious ways.

A Merry Little Wedding by Cathy McDavid

Maid of honor Emma Sturlacky wishes she could enjoy the preparations for her mom's Christmas wedding. If only it felt less like an echo of her own disastrous engagement. (And if only her handsome ex-fiance Nick Hayes wasn't one of the groomsmen!)

Mistletoe Magic by Marin Thomas

Who's got more baggage: Finley McCarthy, the struggling single mom of boisterous twin boys, or Cooper Hollis, the jaded rancher caring for his curmudgeonly dad? Tough call. More important, will that baggage squash their chance at a budding romance?

Paperback, 320 pages
Expected publication: December 2nd 2014 by Harlequin 
Genre: Holiday/Christmas

Kristine's Thoughts:

I received an advanced e-copy of this book from Harlequin via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

What better way to prepare for the coming holiday season than with a book that has not one but three Christmas stories to enjoy.

Santa's Mistletoe Mistake by Carla Cassidy

I thought that this was a super sweet Christmas story that is sure to put anyone in the holiday spirit. What I enjoyed most about this story was the town of Mistletoe itself. The description of the town and the festivities made me wish that I lived there or that I could at least visit over the holidays. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the characters and the story itself held all of the holiday magic that I enjoy this time of year.

A Merry Little Wedding by Cathy McDavid

This story was a quick and easy second chance romance that takes place over the holiday season.  I did find Emma a little annoying at times but I absolutely adored Nick.

Mistletoe Magic by Marin Thomas

The third and final story did not disappoint with its warm and cosy holiday story. The relationship progressed quickly but with a little holiday magic who's to say that it can't happen. I adored Burt and the twin boys and really felt like they were what made this story so cute.

All three stories have three things in common. They all take place in the town of Mistletoe and there is a major snow storm in each one as well as a hunky cowboy. The town is a character in itself and I feel like it added a great deal to each story. With its holiday charm it could easily warm the heart of the biggest Christmas scrooge.

This book was exactly what I needed to get me in the spirit for the upcoming season. It entertained me on a cold winter day and left me wanting to wrap presents and go on a sleigh ride.
