Review: Under the Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis


There's no place like home for the holidays. And the Lucky Harbor Bed & Breakfast is bursting with festive lights and good cheer. But for Mia, Christmas is turning out to be anything other than merry and bright. Her recent break-up with her boyfriend Nick has made her return bittersweet. But then a surprise arrives, when Nick follows her to town bearing gifts-and asking for forgiveness.

Nick grew up without a family of his own so he's overwhelmed by the love that Mia receives from all her relatives, gathered together to celebrate the season. Under their watchful eyes, Nick finds earning back her trust the hardest thing he's ever had to do. If he succeeds, he will receive the greatest gift of all, Mia's love for a lifetime.

Just a tiny glimpse of the grown-up Mia, Tara's and Ford's daughter readers met in The Sweetest Thing, but it's a good one.  She's dealing with young adulthood (or is it called new adulthood now?), and she's found a man she loves very much in Nick.  There's a little bit of angst, a little bit of a Big Misunderstanding, though everything works out as it should in the end.  The original Lucky Harbor trilogy is my favorite, so I was pleased to get to revisit the sisters once again. 

(A very special thank you to Forever Romance, Hachette Book Group and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of Under the Mistletoe.)
