Sleigh Bride (Mistletoe Montana #12) - Xavier Neal

 

 

 

Sleigh Bride by Xavier Neal

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Sleigh Bride let's it all hang out. Neal gives the heart a reason to smile, while putting the moves on the senses. Lark and Da'Nika are the sunshine in a snowstorm of lies. It's fiery. It's funny. It's emotional. For me it was love. Too bad it ended far too soon.

Mistletoe
Mistletoe - Alison Littlewood

by Alison Littlewood

 

This starts out pretty depressing. Leah has bought a house her husband wanted, but the husband and children are dead. The first chapter doesn't reveal how that happened, but focuses on Leah and her internal processing of her grief.

 

The writing in this one is poetic, just beautiful. The early plot progression reminds me of Stephen King. Mysterious voices, snowballs thrown by invisible entities, mysterious visions, etc. A strange toy found in the barn adds a creepy factor.

 

Leah meets her closest neighbours, a divorced woman and her son, as well as a brother, and starts to feel like she can make new friends now who don't remind her of her previous life. Only other things do keep reminding her. A child's shape on the wall, the sound of a boy's laughter. Is it the ghost of her lost son or the spirit of a child who was killed on the property generations ago?

 

To make things more disturbing, Leah starts having visions when she touches objects that have some connection to the past. Not her past, but that of the house itself. About halfway through we learn what happened to her family and the mistletoe begins to feature strongly. The orchard is dying, but the mistletoe somehow keeps creeping into the house.

 

Lots of ghostly happenings in this one. The time slips are well done and there's an unexpected twist near the end.

Cupcakes & Mistletoe: The Wedding (One of the Boys) by Teresa Crumpton
Cupcakes & Mistletoe: The Wedding (One of the Boys) - Teresa Crumpton

 

 

 

Share the love with a little bit of holiday cheer and a whole lot of heart. Crumpton is back to make us laugh, cry and celebrate with a few not too distant friends. Cupcakes and Mistletoe: The Wedding is the culmination of a feast of the heart. Calla and Wes are a reminder that good things come to those who wait and that's reason enough to make me smile. A short sweet treat.

That Mistletoe Moment
That Mistletoe Moment - Allyson Charles,Cat Johnson,Kate Angell

As with just about all anthologies, some stories are better than others and that was the case with this one too. The 1st story- A Boyfriend by Christmas was the best and if I rated this story by itself, this would be 4*. Noelle and George have been dating almost 5 years. They grew up together, but didn't start dating until they were in college. Their parents are friends and next door neighbors. After having (finally) realized he really wasn't just that into her/right for her Noelle breaks up with him. On Thanksgiving. Her sister sets her up with a fake boyfriend app. Noelle accidentally texts the wrong person (Nathan) and a relationship begins. I thought Noelle was a little batty, but relate-able and I liked her. I also liked Nathan. The romance helps fast, but I didn't really have a problem with that.
All I Want for Christmas 2*
Didn't like Daniel.
Her Favorite Present 2*
Gabe is one of the founders of the fake boyfriend app. I couldn't warm up to him. He had a less than favorable opinion of the people (mainly women) who used his app.
For romance-opoly using this for the last mystery square (and only one more to go!)

Audio Review: Meet Me Under the Mistletoe (A River Rock Christmas Romance) by Stacey Kennedy (Author), Kelsey Navarro (Narrator)
Meet Me Under the Mistletoe (A River Rock Christmas Romance) - Stacey Kennedy

 

 

 


If sexy has a heart, count on Stacey Kennedy knowing how to pull at the strings. Meet Me Under the Mistletoe breathes heat, but it bleeds heart. One kiss rocked the foundation of two young hearts. Then reality set in and their chance was loss. When years gone by plants the seed and fate provides the fertilizer, can the present heal two hearts lost so long ago? No one gets the heart quite like Kennedy. With a sprinkle of humor, a bushel of heart and the sultry vocal of Kelsey Navarro, Meet Me Under the Mistletoe becomes an affair to remember. An experience worth having again and again.
