12 Days of Christmas Review: UNDER THE MISTLETOE by Jill Shalvis

About the book:


There’s no place like home for the holidays. And the Lucky Harbor Bed & Breakfast is bursting with festive lights and good cheer. But for Mia, Christmas is turning out to be anything other than merry and bright. Her recent break-up with her boyfriend Nick has made her return bittersweet. But then a surprise arrives, when Nick follows her to town bearing gifts-and asking for forgiveness.

Nick grew up without a family of his own so he’s overwhelmed by the love that Mia receives from all her relatives, gathered together to celebrate the season. Under their watchful eyes, Nick finds earning back her trust the hardest thing he’s ever had to do. If he succeeds, he will receive the greatest gift of all, Mia’s love for a lifetime.
14,000 words

UNDER THE MISTLETOE is a delightful story. After the original three Lucky Harbor books I often wondered what happened to Ford and Tara’s daughter Mia and her relationship with Carlos. I loved the way that relationship is addressed and is kind of part of this new relationship with Nick. Everything moves at a very quick pace, but in no way does it feel as if anything is left out of the story. I loved getting to “see” all of the original Lucky Harbor characters. UNDER THE MISTLETOE is the perfect read for the busy holiday season.

    I love Jill’s books and esp love books having a character with a not so happy past and having it take place during the holidays and at a bed and breakfast gives it a warm and fuzzy..
