I'm first going to start off my saying that I took a chance on this book because I am always keen to find new authors and to try to extend my reading range (usually mysteries or crime).

My own preference is to read a book that is hugely gripping and highly compelling. I like grisly crime stories and a myriad of complex sub-plots. Dancing with Mistletoe is not that and the cover and the description are very clear.

I like characters to have many obstacles to overcome but the main character Julia i

What a cute little novella. Vicky and Julia talking about the Christmas presents are hilarious. And the way Julia describes Jack is so sweet. It's obvious how much they love each other. This was the perfect holiday read. It reminds me why I love Christmas so much: opening presents, making cookies, snowball fights, snow angels, friends, family, love, thoughtfulness, and Christmas spirit.

Favorite quotes:

What do you get a British rockstar for Christmas? What does
he get you?

I went into this not knowing that it was in a series of sorts. However, I thought it read well as a standalone. This is the story of Julia who fell in love with a famous musician Jack and her life as it has turned upside down but for the good. We have these thoughts of famous musicians who are reckless and cheaters, but I loved how Jack is the exception to the rule. This is a true love story of a girl who simply fell in love with someone who truly loves her back. I also loved that it was set in ...more

apparently I failed to realize that this was a christmas supplement to a novel called Come Dancing. unfortunately, I realized that only at the end of this story.

the whole time I just kept thinking: what am I missing? why am I just reading about this woman counting down to christmas and just flying by the interesting stuff?

well, that's because all of those nice details and emotions were probably already covered in the full novel.

I think I would have liked this if I read it in order, after Come Da

Lovely tale of rock star and average Joe

This story was quite slow at first, starting off with a get together and two women gossiping over presents one should or shouldn't get. It then takes on a life of its own as a quick read for a snow day. Great sentence structure tires and a multitude of great rarely used words. Well written and sweetly finished. Only downside is this book wasn't descriptive in any sense besides talking sensual about the men.

I read Dancing with Mistletoe in less than an hour but the fact that I didn't notice the time passing surprised me, as did this neat little story about a young woman and her rocker boyfriend. It drew me in and kept me there. Good writing is a gift and Leslie Wells is a gifted storyteller. This is what reading is all about - losing yourself in another time and place. Good holiday story.

What's under the tree?

Really cute, I loved the simplicity of the story and it felt so real. The story is written as if the writer had lived this. Cute but a little sexy, short but not too short. You will really enjoy this.

A short sweet Christmas story about a young woman and her gorgeous British rockstar boyfriend. I don't want to give anything away so I'll just say if you're looking for a quick read to put you in the holiday spirit then this would be a great book to read.

Dancing with Mistletoe is a sweet little Novella that fills a week between the end of Come Dancing and the start of Keep Dancing. If you are reading the series, don’t miss it and if possible read between the two. Christmas in NY is magical (especially with Jack Kipling).

A short piece of a novel "Come Dancing". Cute but hard to get into since I didn't know the back story that well.

A cute seasonal story.

The three stars is because I don't really enjoy short stories, not a reflection of the writing.
