There's no mistaking...that this was really cute
For those of you who like those sweet Hallmark Christmas movies, this is the book for you. And that’s a good thing - because we can’t get enough of those cute holiday stories. In Mistletoe Mistake, the first in the Greetings from Avondale series, Amali Rose shows humour and heart. It’s a very quick read and it’s fun - this book will definitely get you into the holiday spirit.
Holly hates Christmas and has since she was a kid. Her birthday is on Christmas Day and she always felt that she got the short end of the stick. While housesitting for her brother close to the holidays, Holly finds an unexpected roommate in Nick, her brother’s best friend, and Holly’s longtime crush. Yes, Holly has always liked Nick but she’s always been too shy, and too afraid of her brother’s reaction, to tell him how she feels. Nick is really happy to be sharing a house with Holly, because - you guessed it - he has feelings for her too. It’s a delightful Christmas miracle. Nick decides that not only is he finally going to make his move with Holly, but he’s going to do his best to get her into the Christmas spirit.
Seeing two fun characters that have a shared past finally come together is really great. Rose leads us through their emotional journey with funny and cute scenes. She also introduces side characters that we will most likely see in later books - I always enjoy when an author works to set up further stories. I really enjoyed this Christmas story and I know you will too. Mistletoe Mistake releases December 3. Thank you to the author and to Give Me Books PR for giving me an advanced copy, in exchange for an honest review.
