Under the Mistletoe

Lucky Harbor Novella

"Under The Mistletoe" by Jill Shalvis is just a sneak peek into Mia's- Tara & Ford's daughter- life after five years away from Lucky Harbor. In those few years she has become a woman, a woman that I fell in love with instantly. Nick is the man who is lucky enough to have captured Mia's heart.

The things that I absolutely loved about this book are, being able to catch up with all of the families from the first three books. But I also got to know a new couple and had the opportunity to fall in love with them as they found their love for each other. Though this book was incredibly short I didn't feel rushed at any point and I felt as if this story had a heartwarming Christmas feel.

Mia and Nick's relationship is beginning to bloom, but when Nick refuses to accompany Mia to a family wedding she begins to think of Nick as no more than just another man set to have sex with her and refuse any emotions deeper than lust. Hurt and deflated Mia returns to her family’s hometown of Lucky Harbor. Will a heroic show of love save this relationship or has it already died?
