This is the story of Lori's roommate, whose parents have been leading separate lives for about 4 years, ever since her uncle committed suicide, her mother tours and father works on the ranch not talking to each other and now that she is getting married she wants it to end, be it a reconciliation or divorce.

Honestly, for parents of a 23 year old these two were immature, they loved each other and had been faithful to each other but had too much of pride to talk. The heroine's brother had stolen fr

“The human heart is a curious thing…How could it be so overflowing with joy and so consumed with misery at the same time?”
Molly Stapleton is excited for a Christmas season wedding to the man she loves, but is deeply saddened that her parents have not spoken to each other in three years.

This was a nice second chance holiday romance of a concert pianist and her rancher husband, who receive a little push getting back on track with a littl
It's a little story about Christmas, weddings, forgiveness and Eternity Springs--you'll find an excerpt from LOVER'S LEAP at the end.

I had a hard time with this at first. The story opens with a grown woman being asked to marry the man she loves and she starts crying and being all upset because her parents WHO SEPERATED 4 YEARS AGO are still apart. WTF?!?! If this girl was 10 years old I could see it. But seriously?!

So you have to get over that pretty big chunk of crap to like this story. And I did. The romance and the hint of mysticism (Not sure if Mrs. Blessing was supposed to be an angel of Mrs. Clause?) were pretty charmi

Talk about a family Christmas run amuck! And a fantastically emotional yet comical story to boot! I love the way that March mixes tear-jerking moments with laugh inducing ones, keeping my emotions on edge. The down to earth characters were a lot of fun, if a little misguided at times. March definitely showed the women of Eternity Springs as they truly are, however. This cast of characters was not only captivating & fetching but also extremely fun to hang out with for this short while.

A sweet and delightful holiday addition to the Eternity Springs series. The "Angels" in Eternity Springs have once again brought peace and love to those in need.

A sweet romance - if only all relationship problems could be solved so easily!

I seem to be turning into an overly sentimental softie as I age. Emily March's Mistletoe Mine is the kind of unabashedly sweet-souled, achingly earnest story that I might have rolled my subtlety-loving eyes at as recently as a few years ago. Now, though, I'm at a stage where I more frequently seek out the pure, uplifting joy that this sort of story can provide---and "Mistletoe Mine" provided it in spades!

The plot revolves around estranged couple Emma and Jared Stapleton, reluctantly reuniting in

A cute little segue in the Eternity Springs series. It is nice to see that even visitors to this charming little town are touched by loves healing powers.

Another winner from Emily March. I absolutely love this series. Although this is a holiday book, it isn't totally full of the Christmas cheer so it can be enjoyed any time of the year. A couple on the verge of divorce are forced to spend time together right before their only daughter's wedding. No spoilers so that's all I am going to say. :-)

Charlie asked Molly to marry him. She said yes. The problem she has is her parents. They have avoided each other for years. How will they do at her wedding? Read it and see how they work out their problems.

Review originally published at The Bookwyrm's Hoard.

Short and sweet tale of an estranged couple brought together by their about-to-be-married daughter. I enjoyed it, but it lacks the depth of the full-length novels in the series -- understandably so, since it's difficult to develop that in a shorter format. You'll still find yourself rooting for Emma and Jared to get back together, though! Some of the secondary characters are familiar from earlier books (especially Celeste Blessing, Sarah, Lor

Predictable, quick, and not well-developed. Can definitely skip without missing anything from the series.

Newly engaged to her college sweetheart, Molly Stapleton has one wish for her holiday wedding: get her estranged parents back together. Three years ago, a family tragedy drove Emma Stapleton away from her husband, Jared, and their sprawling Texas ranch. Time, false pride, and unhealed hurts have only widened the divide. But Molly, with the help of some very special people in Eternity Springs, has a plan. As Emma and Jared arrive in this magical town to share Molly's happiness, they meet face-to- ...more

I haven't read any of the Eternity Springs books, but I thought this sounded like a charming Christmas read at .99 on Amazon. It's a second chance love story revolving around the marriage of Molly and Charlie, and their attempt to involve both of Molly's parents in the wedding without them killing each other. All of the characters in this story were captivating, and the town itself is charming with it's cast of characters who fancy themselves matchmakers with the ability to "fix" relationships. ...more

It was short and sweet in this series. I liked how the daughter played a matchmaker to her parents who are estranged to each other even though they haven't processed to file a divorce in years. But will I want to own this? No, not really. I enjoyed the previous book, but this one was ok-ok. Just cute and sweet. Usually I think that their story should be expanded to a full-length novel, but I think what they have was good enough for this novella. Their characters were well-developed and their sto ...more

I've read several novellas recently, since I got my Nook and this is really the first one I've truly enjoyed. Mostly, I find them too short to really develop an interest in what is going on, by the time you even start to get interested, its over. This one however, actually told a decent story. It was about 35 pages long with likable characters and of course, a return to the town of Eternity Spring. If you like the other books in this series, this novella is worth a read.

This is a short novella read on my kindle. It is set in Eternity Springs and features Molly Stapleton and her parents Jared and Emma. The story opens with Molly getting engaged to Charlie Malone. The second part is about Christmas in Eternity Springs and the wedding. Molly is trying to get her parents to reconnect. It was a very quick easy read. It has made me want to read other books by this author set in Eternity Springs.

This was the first book by Emily March I have read. I know that I probably should have started with the first book in her series, but since it was Christmas time, I figured I would check out the Christmas book.

I LOVED this story. You don’t have to actually have read the previous three books, to get to know the characters, really.

As always, the magic of Christmas makes any and everything possible.

I look forward to stepping back into the world of Eternity Springs, soon.

Sweet romance novella about a bride-to-be who wants nothing more than to get her estranged parets back together.
Spending Christmas in Eternity Springs (where the wedding will be held) gives the bride the opportunity to get some help from new friends.
This is part of the Eternity Springs series but it stands alone. Very nice story.
