“Mistletoe Kisses,” is a collection of eight short, romance stories written by eight different authors. It took me a long time to read these because I would read one short story, then read a book. I would then read two short stories and then read a book. Oh yea! Anyway, so it did take me awhile to read the entire collection. Each story stands alone. All eight stories are good, however, there were three that were my favorites and I am going to focus on those three.
“The Gift,” by Lisa Mondello is the story of Allison and Derek. Allison finds an envelope on the ground and Derek seems to believe that there was money inside the envelope and Allison took the money. Well! There is a note inside and the note is a little girl’s Christmas wish. Allison is determined to get the gift for the girl . . . Derek has some important things to learn. Hence, we have a nice holiday romance.
“The Spinster’s Christmas,” by Camille Elliot. This is a Regency romance and this short story has a mystery in it! Miranda and Gerard are childhood friends. They meet again at a Christmas celebration at Wintrell Hall. Miranda is the poor relation living in her cousin’s home and wants to escape. Gerard’s career has been cut short by an injury that leaves him walking with a cane and a limp. It was a nice story. I appreciated the Christmas celebration. There seemed to be so many children in this story. I liked it. In the past, I don’t think I have ever read a story with so many children.
“Mistletoe Cowboy,” by Lacy Williams. This one was my favorite of the three I’ve listed. I really liked Justin. I thought he was so cute, pulling up in his truck, to the drive through window of the coffee shop so he could see and talk to Valri! Justin is a former bull rider in the rodeo. He was injured by a bull and as such, his rodeo days are over. He’s had a tough time of it. Well, Valri is finishing up her pre-med degree and has plans to become a doctor! So, there you have a Christmas season romance in the making. Mistletoe Cowboy is such a feel good story. I liked it.
Read them all! Enjoy!!!
