Two single thirty-year-olds. One marriage pact. And a night in Vegas that’s about to change everything…
On Christmas Eve eight years ago Evie and Dan made a pact: if they weren’t married by thirty, they were going to marry each other. Of course, neither of them took it seriously, even if Dan has always been mesmerised by Evie’s beautiful smile, and Evie has always fancied Dan, her best-friend’s brother.
But then “it” happens. They wake up on Christmas Eve, the night before Evie’s thirtieth birthday in Vegas… married. In a honeymoon suite filled with hundreds of heart-shaped pillows, they realise too late what they’ve done – just like Ross and Rachel.
Surely if they just get a quickie divorce, they can go back to the way things used to be, right? If it wasn’t for the alcohol and Susan-with-the-huge-beehive-hairdo who just wouldn’t take no for an answer, none of this would have happened. They can just go back to being friends.
Except moving on is easier said than done when you've secretly loved each other forever… but if one of them doesn’t admit that, what happens to their friendship? If they don’t get together this time, what happens to the pact? Are they really ready to let it go for good?
Fall in love this Christmas with this feel-good story about love and second chances. Fans of One Day in December, This Time Next Year and Beth O’Leary will adore The Mistletoe Pact.

Wonderful Festive Read
Evie and Dan make a pact that if they aren’t married by the time they are thirty, then they would marry each other. Dan had always been attracted to Evie and Evie always liked Dan, and he just happens to be her best friend’s brother. But then they wake up married on Christmas Eve, the night before Evie’s thirtieth birthday. They are in the honeymoon suite in Vegas. So they think a quick divorce will fix everything. Their friendship can easily go back to the way it was before the wedding, right? But is that what they really want to do…I don’t think so. This laugh-out-loud festive read will surly get you into the Christmas spirit. I enjoyed the storyline of this book, it was fun, festive and hilarious. This charming read is one that will stay with you after you read the last page.
Thank you Jo Lovett for such a wonderful story. I really enjoyed the flow of the story and the characters were an absolutely delightful bunch. They were a lively group of friends that definitely stick by each through thick and thin. I loved it, and I highly recommend this book.
Horrible read. Always about Dan and Dan and Dan and…
There was simply no end to how pathetic Evie was when it came to thinking about Dan. Seems like the author couldn’t come up with a good plot line so they filled it with nothing but useless fluff. Save yourself the time and skip this one.
