Under the Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis { Review }

Under The Mistletoe
( Lucky Harbor #6.5}
by Jill Shalvis

Kindle EditionShort story55 pages
Published December 4th 2012 by Grand Central Publishing


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.     Under the Mistletoe (Lucky Harbor, #6.5)

 First Lines: Holding on to her hat, Mia ran along the streets on her killer four-inch red heels, her matching red skirt ruffling in the breeze.

Favorite Line(s): “Try asking sometime. Not all women will stand for that 50 Shades crap, you know.” 

My Review: Too short!! Since Jill Shalvis is one of my go to authors it pains me when her books don't go on forever.

What a fun treat it was to go back and get Mia's story after she was introduced in book number 2 ( I believe this was the book?). I think Mia and Nick's story needed a bit more story line to really feel like I connected to them. With that being said it's hard to say what I loved about this book... no that's a lie, loved that it was a book by Jill ( and that is enough for me :D). I have a few things that bugged me but I think that if there was room for more depth it would have worked itself out. That's the problem with novella's, they tend to leave you with more questions then if you didn't read up on the characters at all!

My Rating: Photobucket

Happy Reading
