I’m a bit behind on reviewing this book or call it early since it’s a Christmas themed story. I read this book early this month and is my first holiday themed book for the year. The Mistletoe Effect is a little naughty, a little nice and whole lot of Christmas love. Getting geared up for some holiday spirit? This is the novella for you!

Oh my goodness, The Mistletoe Effect is such a fun, crazy, romantic holiday read. Even though it has a holiday setting it very much can be read and enjoyed anytime of the year. The romance between our hero and heroine is just a sweet, feel-good relationship. The secondary characters are over-the-top crazy and driven. I can not tell you how many times in reading this book I was shaking my head and thinking "dear Lord, I thought my family was bad". Their bad is more of t ...more

I was taken totally by surprise by this book. This is not one I would normally choose. I’m more of a mystery, thriller or romantic suspense fan. But, happily, I let some friends convince me to try, just once, a Western Romance with a holiday theme. I didn’t expect to fall head over heels in love with this story. But I did.
First of all, the writing captivated me before I had a chance to connect to the characters. Melissa Cutler takes all those ...more

I'll admit that when I started this story, I wasn't too sure.

To not jinx the effect, Grandma states that someone has to get married. As the event planner for the family property and the one who rescued the thrown bouquet by her sister, Carina is the one chosen for sacrifice and James as the best man, ...more

What a wonderful holiday read, I love a book that once in awhile does a fairly simple love without the hero and heroine don't have any real animosity towards each other. sometimes when you have the animosity the wonderful thing about gets lost. In this book it doesn't get lost, instead you have two people who really do care about what is best for the other person.

The Mistletoe Effect starts off with a bang and captures reader's attentions. And it never really stops. It seems as if it's one thing after another. It was fun because of this and it kept things rolling.
I honestly spent a lot of this book laughing my head off, if I didn't have tears in my eyes. As I mentioned before it was one thing after another and I honestly had to fight to put this book down.
The characters as well as the plot l ...more

Okay…it is true that I will read a lot of cheese…especially Christmas cheesy love stories…but even for me, it was a stretch to see a marriage, even a fake one, go off without a hitch. Carina is all about the business. The fact that she would go through with the sham is nuts, but the fact that she hooks up with her secret crush James is anything but crazy. James has crushed on her too, but out of fear for his job, he has stayed away. I loved their chemistry, but I didn’t like the ne ...more
