Under the Mistletoe
Under the Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis
JUST ONE MORE KISS
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.
This is only my second book to read by Jill, but I love her writing. Her characters are always so real and I feel very connected to them. The love stories are also very sweet. I melt several times during her books. This book was more of a novella, so it was very short and sweet. I really enjoyed it, and will probably read it again, but I would have liked a little bit more.
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
