Christmas at Mistletoe Cottage by Lucy Daniels

My last read of December!

Themes: Contemporary romance

The synopsis

This year, vet Mandy Hope is looking forward to the holidays. Her animal rescue centre, Hope Meadows, is up and running – and she’s finally going on a date with Jimmy Marsh, owner of the local outward bound centre.

The advent of winter sees all sorts of animals cross Mandy’s path, from goats named Rudolph to baby donkeys – and even a pair of reindeer! But when a mysterious local starts causing trouble, Mandy’s plans for the centre come under threat. She must call on Jimmy and her fellow villagers to put a stop to the stranger’s antics and ensure that Hope Meadows’ first Christmas is one to remember.

One thing’s for certain: this Christmas, there’ll be animal escapades, kisses under the mistletoe…and plenty of festive cheer for all.

The review

I picked this book randomly during my holidays and I have to say that it was a very nice Christmas romance! It’s part of a series but can totally be read on its own.

It’s very atmospheric and charming since the action is taking place in a small village of Yorkshire during Christmas. I also liked the characters, which are very simple but are all sticking together during hardships. We are following their everyday life and see them experience love, friendship but also grief. Mandy is a very sweet vet, whose life is dedicated to her animals. She takes some rash decisions but everything is working on its own by the end of the book. Since I love animals, they were a nice supplement to the story for me and they were sometimes triggering comic situations. There was also a tiny bit of a mystery in this book, which made the book even more enjoyable!

In brief: perfect for a light read and as a romance for Christmas!

My rating: 4/5
