Two incredible holiday romances that will make your heart sing. Both are beautifully written and remind us of the warmth and love of the season.
Mistletoe Between Friends - A wonderful lighthearted friends to lovers story that is perfect to get you in the holiday mood. Cam and Lily have been best friends their whole lives. No one seems to understand either of them the way the other does. Dreading another long holiday season filled with parties and parental "fix ups" they decide to pretend date to avoid all the craziness. Only what starts out innocent soon turns sizzling and they both have to deal with unexpected feelings and families who are over the moon!
The Snowflake Inn - Oh man I loved this story!! This is a wonderfully sweet story of a woman looking for love and family and a man who has both but doesn't realize it. Great characters and a story that flows beautifully.
Two great stories = One great book
Two amazing Christmas Set stories, great for an anytime read!!!
Mistletoe Between Friends
Two best friends from birth. Cameron a nerdy scientist and Lily a creative, fun loving lady. Both secretly having a crush on the other. Cam comes up with a plan for them to start pretend dating, to avoid being set up on horrible blind dates by their parents. Quickly into their dating they both start to wonder if it was really a good idea because it has just increased their feelings. I found myself wondering will they be able to finally admit their feelings which could end better than they ever imagined or will it ruin their friendship for good. I loved this book. It was so sweet and a great best friends to lover story. The way Cam and Lily's differences compliment each other is great. And the way Cam stands up for and defends Lily is so sweet, it tugged at my heart strings. A wonderful Christmas or anytime read!!!!
The Snowflake Inn
Grace has lost a lot in the last 10 years. So when her new friend Corinne asks Grace to come and help run her Bed and Breakfast, Grace goes. The first six weeks after her move and things are going great, that is until Corinne's son Riley comes home. He is done with his career in the military and is not sure what to do. Although he knows one thing he does not want to take over the B & B. Riley is on a mission to try to get his mom to sell the B & B. This was another wonderful story. I love the setting. I wish it was a true place that I could go and visit. And the characters are great. The way Grace and Riley interact in the beginning you can feel how mad Grace is. I absolutely love Corinne and Ben, they add a lot to the story as well. It ends up Riley can have a loving side and watching that come out just melted my heart. Such a sweet story, I truly enjoyed!!!
Great Christmas Duo
These are some great Christmas romances. Starting with Mistletoe Between Friends is great. The perfect pair of opposites that are best friends, a plot to stop the blind date set-ups for the holidays, and things just lead to so much more. Lily and Cameron have amazing chemistry and they are just far too adorable together. I was rooting for them right from page on and I enjoyed every page of their story.
The Snowflake Inn was another great romance, but it didn't hit the same high note that Mistletoe Between Friends did. Grace and Riley are both survivors on different tracks life. Riley is a bit of a jerk for most of the story - which was hard to wrap my head around after such a great feel-good story in Mistletoe. I needed him to turn around faster to really like him. Grace was a strong woman, but she had her weak moments that really made me feel for her. The romance was quite fast to all wrap up.
This is a great Christmas duo. Not sure I'd recommend reading them back to back though - just too different.
