TOP READ OF 2017
It Must’ve Been the Mistletoe by L.P. Dover is a perfect, magical holiday romance! I’ve still got a smile on my face after finishing it!
The is the first year that I have read Christmas books, and this one is one of my favorites! Adeline is a high school history teacher, and she loves her job. It isn’t just a job for her; it’s her life. She loves history. As good as her life is, filled with a great family and good friends, she still hasn’t found true love. Her best friend is getting married, and she wants Adeline to meet his brother, Will.
Will is moving back to his hometown of Asheville, N.C. He worked hard in his family’s real estate business and has sacrificed his personal life to keep it successful. Leaving California, he is now looking forward to cutting back on work, enjoying life, and finds himself looking forward to meeting Adeline.
While at the wedding rehearsal, Adeline receives a special gift from the wedding planner, a locket. She loves it, but she has NO idea how this locket will change her life. This is where the story got very interesting. She finds herself back in the 1860s and falling in love with Will. I found myself falling in love with both of them too! Their romance is soooo sweet!
When the book returns back to the present time, I still had a lot of questions. I won’t go into them all because I don’t want to spoil anything, but I will say Dover brings the story full circle. The ending was PERFECT!!!!
Dover did a phenomenal job of capturing the magic of Christmas. I highly recommend reading if you are looking for a sweet, magical holiday read. If this doesn’t put you in the mood for Christmas, nothing will! The icing on the cake was the recipe for homemade biscuits at the end! YUM!!!
She loves to write, but she also loves to play tennis, go on mountain hikes and white water rafting, and has a passion for singing. Her two youngest fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime, usually Christmas carols.
Dover has written countless novels, including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, the Gloves Off series, the Armed & Dangerous series, the Royal Shifters series, the Society X series, the Circle of Justice series, and her standalone novel Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense, but if she got to choose a setting in which to live, it would be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.
