It’ll take a miracle to make Juliet’s Christmas merry, but Mistletoe Row is the place to be when you need some Christmas magic.
The last person Juliet Bell expects to see when she returns home for Christmas is Harrison Bow. Especially with the most beautiful woman in the world by his side. Twenty years ago, Juliet and Harrison had the shortest romance in history, consisting of one date – and one blazing row. But Juliet will never admit when she’s wrong, and Harrison doesn’t forgive easily, so they haven’t seen, or spoken to one another since.
Harrison Bow vowed he’d never visit his grandfather at The Grange, again, or drive along Mistletoe Row, the scene of one of the unhappiest times of his life. He hasn’t been back for twenty years and he’s only here now because his brother pleaded with him to come. At least with his executive assistant joining him, he’ll be able to do some work.
But Juliet’s sister, Zoe and Harrison’s brother, Luke have some surprises in store for their elder siblings, and so it seems does Fate. After Harrison risks his life to save Juliet, the least she can do is be nice. The problem is, Harrison is hotter than the log fire in The Mistletoe pub, and when she’s surrounded by twinkling lights and softly falling snow, it doesn’t take long for her to realise she’s in love with the man she thought she hated. Even if he doesn’t appear to be in love with her.
I absolutely loved the authors books in the Lily Pond Lane series so was very eager to read her new stand alone novel set at one of the most magical times of the year.
The setting as I have come to expect from the author, plays a big part in making this story. Not just the village itself, but The Grange also, which is the big house which Harrison Bow’s family have owned for the last twenty years. The descriptions of the rooms and the lake were just enough to get my mind working overtime with fabulous images popping up in my head throughout the novel.
Juliet and Harrison I really liked. Though sometimes I wanted to give them a big shake for them not being able to see clearly what was right under their nose. It was frustrating at times sitting on the sidelines waiting for things to happen. When they do though, oh my goodness, it felt like all my Christmas’s had come at once.
Bells And Bows On Mistletoe Row is a fun, festive and fabulous read. It will get you feeling all Christmasy and I was fit to burst by the end with how happy I felt. It really does leave you with a lovely warm glow and a massive grin on your face. Loved it, loved it, loved it!
