Yes, I know it’s only the end of October, but I’m back with another review for a Christmas book. I love reading them and will be doing that more and more as we get closer to Christmas. Today I want to talk about A Mistletoe Miracle. This was a buddy read with The Artsy Reader who loves Christmas books as much as I do! Keep on reading to find out more about this book and what I thought!
The perfect feel-good Christmas romcom for 2019.
At the Everdene Hotel, snowflakes, romance and mayhem are in the air…
A cosy hotel in a sleepy, snow-covered village should be the perfect setting for a Christmas to remember… But for Beth, returning to her childhood home after a disastrous break-up looks more like a festive fiasco.
With her mum stranded in a blizzard and most of the hotel staff off sick, Beth is forced to take the reins, impress a mystery hotel reviewer, and somehow find a way to work with Nick, the very grumpy – and very gorgeous – pilot who is staying for the holidays.
Between mince pie emergencies, deadly decorations, and two dozen disgruntled guests, Beth might just find a miracle under the mistletoe this Christmas…
Heartwarming and hilarious, this is the perfect festive romance to curl up with this winter. Perfect for fans of Heidi Swain and Sue Moorcroft.
I’m a big fan of Christmas, so when I read this summary I was definitely curious. Christmas is always a holiday I’ve celebrated at home or with family, so I can’t imagine spending the holiday at a hotel.It’s understandable that people do like to get away from everything and not have all of the stress and mess at home.
Our main character Beth is back living at her mother’s hotel after getting out of a disastrous relationship and trying to figure out what she wants in life now. So while taking time for this she helps her mother out at the hotel. Things get complicated when her mother needs to go to her grandfather and can’t get back because of the snow. This leads to funny, but also heartwarming moments as Beth tries to keep the hotel running basically on her own! I don’t know if I would’ve been able to do that, haha. But is she able to save Christmas?
The setting is amazing. A small town that’s snowed in with a cozy hotel decorated for the holidays. I could imagine sitting by the fireplace in the decorated bar as its described. I would’ve loved to been there for caroling. The guests add to this atmosphere and were an interesting bunch: a writer, a local who stayed at the hotel frequently, a few families, and a grandmother with her two grandsons. My favorite part was trying to figure out who the hotel reviewer was and I have to say I was surprised.
On top of all the interesting events in the hotel we also get a dash of romance. I loved that this was a big element in the story, but it didn’t take over too much. Nick was an interesting character who is dealing with some tragedy. Beth and Nick both have their own things to sort out and it does lead to some miscommunication. How it all plays out made me very happy and left me feeling all warm and cozy.
Another fun and heartwarming holiday story! I’m almost done with another one as I’m typing this, so keep your eye out for more holiday book reviews in the near future!
