Rating: 2.5 Voodoos
Spending a quiet Christmas housesitting and reading novels about hot cowboys sounds perfect to Caitlin Butler. Until a stray kitten brings her face-to-face with Noah, her crush from college. Watching the handsome vet in action melts Caitlin’s heart and brings back long forgotten emotions. She would be safer back at the house lost in the pages of a book. But a toe-curling mistletoe kiss tempts her to stay. Maybe she won’t be spending this Christmas… alone.
Veterinarian Noah Sullivan isn’t a Scrooge, but the Christmas Eve tradition of hanging mistletoe in the clinic’s waiting room annoys him. Kissing doesn’t belong at the Copper Mountain Animal Hospital. Noah rethinks his position when Caitlin arrives with a stray kitten she found freezing in the snow. All he wants now is to maneuver the pretty preschool teacher under the mistletoe. If he’s not careful, he’ll wind up on Santa’s naughty list.
Mistletoe Magic is a short story companion to the Copper Mountain Christmas series.
The description for this book on the kindle app was not this book – probably the one before it. I was promised gingerbread houses and cowboys! I got vets and kitties!!!
Nothing wrong with vets and kitties to be honest with you, but not what I was settling down to read. Still I read it though and it was sort of adorable.
This was another chaste story! I was thinking all these Christmas freebies would be filthy. Unlike the last one however this one did have kisses. All around the mistletoe.
This is a story of lost love re-found. Perhaps they met too soon? Anyway they’re pretty happy to have found each other again even if they do spend some time dancing around it.
I’m glad they both realised that they would be different people now and that they were noticing new things about each other. It made it seem more believable.
I’m wildly curious about the gingerbread houses featured in this book though – clearly the mysterious gingerbread house maker is somewhere! – but I’m trying to clear out my kindle not add more to it! If I’m still thinking about it in a week, I may just have to track her down however!
