Melissa's Review:

The Trouble with Mistletoe is book two in the Heartbreaker Bay series. I enjoyed book one but wound up falling in love with this novel even more. This is a perfect read for around Christmas time since it's set around that time period in the book. Even better, I think that these can be read as standalone books even with the previous novel's couple making appearances in this installment.

We start off with meeting Willa Davis, she runs a successful pet shop that does a little bit of everything. She's a quirky character that I loved instantly, I mean who marries and organizes a dog wedding? Anyway, we quickly meet the potential love interest, Keane Winters, her crush from high school that shattered her heart. Hurt that he doesn't even recognize her, Willa reluctantly accepts looking after his cat and tries not to let on that her grumpy attitude towards Keane is due to their past. The duo winds up becoming friends and I could see their relationship start to blossom with every page turned. There are quite a few miscommunications which lead to bumps in the road for them and it really made the novel feel true to life since that happens in relationships.

The Trouble with Mistletoe was an addicting read I didn't want to put down. I loved the characters and really enjoyed that the pet shop bits weren't just glossed over. We get face time with Willia's close friends and it just made the novel stronger and feel like you were hanging out with your buddies. I was glad to see them again from book one, and can't wait to see who's book is next in the series. I really love this novel and if you're looking for a true to life contemporary romance or one set around Christmas time I'd suggest you grab this one asap!
