    I don t normally read Historical Romance, but this one written by Valerie Bowman is strong enough to make me rethink that decision This novella was short sweet and spicy The fact that it is also a Holiday book, makes it that much bettere lead couple, though stubborn, were endearing, and also a bit racy I found it to be well written, with an actual story, albeit in novella format The settings were detailed beautifully and really made the story come alive I would read in this genre from Ms Bowman [...]

    Take one magical matchmaking cat, two adorable leads and a very special silver closet and you ve got It Happened Under the Mistletoe I found Valerie Bowman s writing charming if not containing a great amount of depth but then again I was in the mood for a fluffy, straightforward type of story so it worked well in this case Here, the plot was sans drama, with Oliver and Cerian s unlikely friendship turned romance at its center, as it should be I had a big smile on my face throughout so I couldn [...]

    This novella was a delightful combination of kisses, mistletoe, a silver closet, a Duke, a heroine who wants to marry for love and a cat It was a treat to revisit Medford and Kate also Time well spent.

    A very quick read, and I m a slow reader but that wasn t a bad thing The pace was good I really enjoyed the banter between the two main characters and felt they had chemistry She had descriptions that made you feel that you were there in that time period without bogging things down with too many details There was a steamy scene near the end that felt a bit out of place for me and Cerian s reaction to it also didn t quite work for me part of why I gave it 4 stars but it wasn t a deal breaker I al [...]

    I realized, too late, that I could have bought the two best stories from Christmas Brides separately, which would have saved me having to read the ridiculous Enoch one But I digress Oliver and Cerian I have absolutely no idea how to pronounce this name, but it seems lovely were so easy to root for The ending was perfect and mushy, with nice comeuppance for a nasty side character Recommended.

    IT HAPPENED UNDER THE MISTLETOE, a charming novella by Valerie Bowman, was simply a pleasure to read The hero and heroine, an unlikely pair, meet while both are avoiding over eager suitors With help in the form of a little feline persuasion, and well placed boughs of mistletoe, this delightful pair find true love I eagerly await Bowman s next book, THE UNEXPECTED DUCHESS coming out at the end of April.
