When an author asks me to review their books I am always filled with wonder and a whole lot of trepidation. I want to do their book justice in my review but even more so I want to be wholeheartedly honest as well. It’s so hard when a book is not my cup of tea, and thankfully Mistletoe Mishap makes this review a cake walk. So good and delightfully cute, this book is an absolute gem of a read.
Viv and Kendra have been together for years. In that time they have had lust, romance, bucket loads of love but the last four months they have hit a bit of a rut when it comes to sexy time. After a caller on the radio suggests she is going to ask her fiancé to wait six months till the wedding night to have any bedroom activities this gets a conversation flowing and an acknowledgment of said sexy time rut. Kendra in a fun loving way challenges her beloved Viv to a contest of who can make the other, well you know, the most number of times.
When ensues is a delightful story full of fun, mischief and a lot of witty banter. It’s no easy feat for a writer to tackle an established couple, but Siri Caldwell does and she does it so well. This is a fun-loving book that is so adorable it will just melt your heart. You want this in your life!

Turkey day has come and gone. We trotted, we over indulged, the Cowboys lost again, we are all in need of stretchy pants and someone to come an untangle last year’s Christmas lights. Why are they always so tangled? Well forget the lights, and the shopping, you need to read this book. Andi Marquette’s, The Bureau of Holiday Affairs is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit.
Robin Preston is a first rate ass, and this is putting it nicely. She a a clog in the corporate machine, where the bottom line is the most important thing. She gives no thoughts to others needs or feelings. She will do whatever it takes to rise in the ranks of Frost Enterprises. That is until she runs into the crew of the Bureau of Holiday Affairs.
This book a lose adaptation of the Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Robin is by all accounts a female version of Ebenezer Scrooge. Yes, she is visited by three spirits that show her the errors of her wicked ways and how she needs to right her ship to live a fruitful and fulfilling life.
This book is heartwarming, and Robin Preston is a great character who evolves over the course of the book from a total dick to a lovable, honest woman. The secondary characters, including Jill Chen are great as well. Andi Marquette is a fantastic writer, who always gives you a first rate book. This is no exception. Even though you know the story, this book will not let you down.
