Earlier this month I was excited to be part of the cover reveal for Laura Barnard's latest book - Bagging Alice - which is released today, Thursday 1st November (click here for more details). I enjoyed that book so much that I immediately went in search of other books by this fun author.
I LOVED this short story. It is a very quick and fun read! The characters are just perfect although the problem with short stories is that you just don't ge ...more

I love anything Laura writes, so I was extremely happy when I heard she had written a short story, but I do wish it was longer.

This is a story about a girl who gets stranded on her way to a wedding with a very hot man.
Unfortuately Sex, Love and Mistletoe was not my kind of read. I love short stories but this one was defintely too short (34 pages) for me to get into and get a connection with the characters. The story is well written (especially the sex scene) and has some great humor in it.I'm ...more
I received a review copy
I am all about holiday books right now, and I love sneaking in these quick little stories for a burst of holiday cheer! This cute novella had a bit of everything – humor, steamy scenes, a mystery. I read it in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed myself, especially the way it ended. It kept a smile on my face the whole time and is definitely a good pick for your holiday reading list!
I have had a great time reading this short story.It's so cute and funny and the sex scene is really hot.When I finished it I hoped to read more about the main characters...maybe in the future :)
I want to thank the author for giving me the chance to read an ARC.
For readers who don't like sex in books please be warned before you start reading. However it does have humour and a lot of emotion in it as well. Great characters and although most of us hadn't stopped a wedding we all have things that have deeply embarrassed us in the past.

I honestly thought that this would be a fun, possibly sweet, Christmas read. I have to say that for the most part, I was disappointed. There was a degree of sweetness at the end, but the plot up to that point that made it possible was not to my taste.
A humorous road trip. A delightful short story.
