Book Review: Blame the Mistletoe (Montana Born Christmas Book 1)

Blame The Mistletoe (Montana Born Christmas Book 1)Blame The Mistletoe by Dani Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great idea!!! Stay at your ex’s Mother in Laws, babysitting her dog, while the ex-husband takes your daughter to a wedding with his wife and his family in Mexico for Christmas.
Liz Flowers thought is it would be a great opportunity to meet new people, but she is from California and doesn’t have much in common with the ranchers in this small town. She is invited to a party, and meets a man who looks real familiar, turns out he was married to her ex-husbands sister, who is in Mexico with the family, and his son.  Sounds confusing? It isn’t, it is a really good Novella, has some ups and downs, two people just trying to have a little uplifting Christmas that they didn’t plan on having.

The author did a great job of bringing in the Christmas spirit and the snow. This is a series but can be read alone, I love the fact that each book has something in common, the town, and the activities in town. So a wonderful sweet story.  I can’t wait to read the whole series.

This book was given to my by Netgalley for an honest review.

What Goodreads says the book is about:
Liz Flowers has never enjoyed Christmas, but this one is shaping up to be the worst by far. She let her ex take her daughter to Mexico while she stays behind in a strange town, sitting her former mother-in-law’s high strung little dog. It’s an opportunity to meet new people, but this California girl doesn’t have much in common with the ranchers in small town Marietta. 

Blake Canon perks up with male interest when he sees a new face at his friend’s Christmas cocktail party. His son is away and a light affair would take his mind off his financial troubles. Then he realizes he knows Liz. She was once married to the brother of his ex-wife. 

Their children might be cousins, but Blake and Liz do the kissing—under the mistletoe. It’s the beginning of a new view of Christmas for Liz, but when their children arrive home unexpectedly, and family secrets are revealed, Liz isn’t sure she’ll stay in Marietta for Christmas after all.

Before making my first sale to Harlequin Mills & Boon in 2012, I spent two decades writing and submitting to every publisher with a transom while holding down a day job and raising a family with my high school sweet heart. Since then, I've gone to contract on twenty books.

While Harlequin Presents remains my first love, I also write romantic comedy, medieval fantasy romance, erotic romance, and small town contemporary romance for Montana Born. In fact, I write just about anything, so long as it's romance.
