Under the Mistletoe

A Legendary Christmas Tale

Dorothy Robbins wants out of the small town that she was born and raised in.  She wants to finish her pharmacist degree, move to a big city and never see Legend, Tennessee again.  But money is tight and her job at Jim Bob's Saloon leaves her little to put in savings.  When Charlie McClain returns to Legend from Los Angeles, Dorothy isn't impressed, after all this is 1975 and she is a woman of the times, so what if he was a marine?  So what if he lived in a big city and made good?  He was still back in Legend.  Can Charlie change Dorothy's outlook on Legend or are they destined to miss their shot?

This was a sweet story about coming of age and changing priorities.  I liked the characters, the scene setting was good and the story flowed well.  I'll have to check out some of Ms. Scott's other titles, as this is the first book I've read by her, but she seems to be a very promising author.  All in all, well worth the time to give it a chance.
