It’ll take a miracle to make Juliet’s Christmas merry, but Mistletoe Row is the place to be when you need some Christmas magic.
The last person Juliet Bell expects to see when she returns home for Christmas is Harrison Bow.Especially with the most beautiful woman in the world by his side. Twenty years ago, Juliet and Harrison had the shortest romance in history, consisting of one date – and one blazing row. But Juliet will never admit when she’s wrong, and Harrison doesn’t forgive easily, so they haven’t seen, or spoken to one another since.
Harrison Bow vowed he’d never visit his grandfather at The Grange, again, or drive along Mistletoe Row, the scene of one of the unhappiest times of his life. He hasn’t been back for twenty years and he’s only here now because his brother pleaded with him to come. At least with his executive assistant joining him, he’ll be able to do some work.
But Juliet’s sister, Zoe and Harrison’s brother, Luke have some surprises in store for their elder siblings, and so it seems does Fate. After Harrison risks his life to save Juliet, the least she can do is be nice. The problem is, Harrison is hotter than the log fire in The Mistletoe pub, and when she’s surrounded by twinkling lights and softly falling snow, it doesn’t take long for her to realise she’s in love with the man she thought she hated. Even if he doesn’t appear to be in love with her.
After reading the Lily Pond Lane series, I just knew I would love this one. Juliet Bell returns home for Christmas as bumps into Harrison Bow. Harrison and Juliet had the shortest romance in history of one date and one row, 20 years previously. It soon becomes obvious that bygones certainly won’t be bygones and nothing has been forgiven despite the years that have passed. But can Juliet ignore the fact that Harrison is hotter than the flames on a Christmas pudding?
This book was an absolute festive charm! As in previous books by this author, the characters are all so likeable and are such fun to be around! The town where the story is based is only small, and the characters all know each other, giving off a great sense of community spirit! I could definitely see myself living there! It is definitely a fun, Christmas, feel-good read and it absolutely perfect for this time of year. The story flows well, is easy to read, there’s plenty of love and laughs and as it’s a relatively short book it’s great to get through in a couple of days!
A thoroughly enjoyable read, and I would have loved it to stretch out into a series to carry on the stories of the other characters! Would definitely recommend!
