Mischief and Mistletoe

How about a little Christmas cheer with a touch of romance?

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  This book has been published this month, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

This is an anthology of eight novellas, all related to the holiday season.  The romances are gentle, the stories varied, and all are an enjoyable read.  They vary in time settings, but most are in Victorian times.

My three favorite reads were:  She Stoops to Wenchdom,  Wench in Wonderland, and The Mistletoe Bride.  I found it amusing that two of the stories used the word Wench in them.

None of the stories will disappoint and they are just right for picking up and putting down.  You could read a story, then wrap a few gifts, then read another...  Or you could find a comfy chair like I did and read it straight through from front to back.  It's up to you.

If you'd like my copy of this ARC, please leave a comment here on my blog and email at info at bookfaerie.com with your name and address and why you'd like to read.  I'll pick a winner in about a week.

Happy reading.

I just love Holiday themed books, and this one has some wonderful authors. I agree with you, Jo Ann, novellas are perfect for quick little reads in between everything else.
