Love Finds You Under the Mistletoe

Two Christmas stories - one historical, one contemporary - under one cover!

Love Finds You under the Mistletoe: An Appalachian Christmas

A promise to her dying sister compels Julia Mayfield to take her young nephew to Mistletoe, Kentucky, a tiny town tucked away in the Appalachian Mountains. Sparks fly when she meets David Armstrong, a World War II veteran like herself. Even as shadows from the past weave a dangerous web around Julia and David, will their love flourish like the mistletoe that blankets the nearby hills?

Love Finds You under the Mistletoe: Once Upon a Christmas Eve

Hollie Goodnight's store has just been voted best Christmas shop in America. All the new publicity draws flamboyant novelist Van Keaton to the cozy town of Noel, Missouri, demanding to write Hollie's story - a dramatic tale of misfortune and triumph. She is swept up in his world of beautiful words and fanciful interludes. . .until Owen Quigly, her lifelong best friend, launches a plan to win her back.

Book Review

I definitely know it is time to start Christmas shopping when publishers start sending Christmas books to read and review.       Love Finds You Under the Mistletoe isn't just one great Christmas book to get you in the Christmas spirit, but two great books.    Their stories are intertwined through two common factors:   family and mistletoe.   

The first book is set in the Appalachian Mountains.    Julia has returned from WWII and instead of having time to recover from all she has experienced she is immediately charged by her parents with the care of her nephew.     They insist she travels across the country to take him to his other grandparents.    Nothing goes as planned.

In the second book the story has been brought to a modern setting in a Christmas store.     Holly is happily surrounded by her father and her best friend.   The only thing that is the missing piece in her life is the reason why her mother abandoned her on her dad's doorstep when she was a baby.

For these families mistletoe means more than kissing.    It means promise.

After you finish reading this great book, be sure and pass it on to a friend!
