Note: I received this book for free from Sullivan & Partners in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I was not paid to write this. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
The holidays are coming guys! They’re coming! While I love the holidays, I can’t help but freak out (just a bit). I have presents to buy, plans to make, and lonely days at work in the horizon. (No vacation days for me.) Along with all of that good stuff, also comes HOLIDAY THEMED BOOKS! & If you’re in need to a holiday read, why not check out The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis.
To be honest, I’m not a huge seasonal reader, but lately, I have been sneaking in the occasional winter holiday themed book into my TBR. I’m quite glad I picked up The Trouble with Mistletoe. The Trouble with Mistletoe had everything I expected from Jill Shalvis: a fun romance and a group of amazing friends. It also had a bunch of pets, which makes sense since Willa owns a pet shop.
Keane and Willa both have some difficult pasts, including an incident where Keane unintentionally stood Willa up for a high school dance. A cat, however, brought the two together, and they venture into this relationship, which they both have difficulty labeling. Keane doesn’t see himself as a person that can be attached to anything, while Willa has a tendency to form deep attachments to the relationships and things she can build, like her friends and her shop.
Jill Shalvis also was able to throw in a couple of plot twists into the story as well, which kept the story moving and fresh. Both Keane and Willa surprised me in the story and occasionally acted in a way I wouldn’t have expected.
All-in-all, if you’re looking for a romantic read featuring Christmas, Jill Shalvis’s The Trouble with Mistletoe is worth the read. It’s fun, quick, and has some amazing characters. If you’re not sold yet, Willa is also a huge fan of Harry Potter, and Keane also has read his fair share of books. ;)
