3.5 Stars!

This is not a light and sweet Christmas story like I was expecting. This turned out to have quite a lot of angst between the MC's and in the beginning I did NOT like Evan. He was cold and only out for himself.

Stella, who's been in love with him since they were young was rejected by Evan when they were in college. She felt humiliated and hasn't spoken to him since. They are brought back together due to her grandfather's passing and asking her to spend a month at his estate he is leavin

Second chance Christmas romance set in England with a bet thrown in for good measure!

Millionaire Under Mistletoe is my first time reading a book by this author but I really enjoyed it (and actually even thought the author was English/British with how accurate she captured the settings and tones of the characters). This is a second chance Christmas romance an Australian woman and a sexy Englishman whose lives have been intertwined for years since they met when younger. The book also includes a be

Not the typical read from Stefanie London... still very much a romance though.
Stefanie's own grief for her Nonno (grandfather) definitely comes across in the way that Stella's grief is written. I'm still struggling to find a way to put my thoughts into words a week after finishing it.
I must say that for an experienced romance reader, I didn't see the twist in this story coming. The twist definitely fit the story though

I received an ARC from the author in return for an honest review.

Christmas themed books are usually a miss for me as they are heavy on the melodrama and healing power of Christmas. This book is a light, sweet story set at Christmas and not overpoweringly Christmas themed, so would suit someone like me.

Okay, I said I wasn't going to read any Christmas books until November. Call me lazy, but I wanted something to read on my phone so I didn't have to put the light on and disturb DH and this was the first thing that caught my eye.

This is a pretty classic reunion trope, with heiress Stella Jackson going back to England to her grandfather's estate to fulfil a vow to spend a month there before deciding whether to sell. Only trouble is that Evan Foss, the boy who rejected her so humiliatingly four ye

Letting Go

Stella promised her grandfather on his deathbed that she'd spend one more month and Christmas at the estate before deciding what to do with it. She hates the cold and would rather spend this time surfing at home in Australia instead of England.
Evan wants to convince Stella to sell her family's estate to him. Everything he knows about the hotel business is because of Nicholas, he wants to fix it, but also personally cares about the property where he grew up too.

This book could not have come at a better time. It was the perfect pick me up for last week :)

I think I've pretty much loved every book Stefanie London has written that I have read and this was no exception. This was a beautiful story of letting go, moving forward, growth and lots and lots of heart. I pretty much smiled my way thru the entire thing. There's not really a wow factor to the story but it's also not cliche, maybe a little predictable, yes, but Stella and Evan were such great characte

Thoroughly enjoyable read! The last place Stella Jackson wants to be is back in England face to face with the one man who has broken her heart. Dealing with the death of her grandfather is hard enough. Dealing with Evan Foss on top of that is sheer torture. All Evan wants is the estate Stella's grandfather left her and he's willing to pay handsomely for it. Unfortunately he knows that their past will keep her from selling to him until it's dealt with. The fact that she is now stunning and as sex ...more

Heather's review from Smut MattersStella Jackson's beloved grandfather recently passed away, leaving her his London estate. He requested that she go back and spend one month there, one final Christmas before selling it, if that's what she decides to do. That's exactly what she'd going to do; she lives in Australia and has no intention of giving up her warm weather and early morning surfing for cold, rainy, dreary London.

Millionaire Under the Mistletoe is set during the Christmas time which in one of my favorite times of the year because it is my birthday month so I have some major biases. Also, I love a good friends to lovers storyline but with Evan and Stella there is also some hurt feeling from the past between them. Stella never expected to return to England much less see Evan but the only way to get her late grandfather’s estate she must spend Christmas at the estate.

What a wonderful second chance story! Stella is the only granddaughter of a loving grandfather, Nicholas, who mentored Evan Foss from the time he was a teenager.

But, now she has come home to England from Australia after the death of her grandfather and has to decide what to do with his estate home. Evan wants the estate and will do anything to get Stella to sell to him.

Stella Jackson has inherited her grandfather's home in England. She flies from her home in Australia at Christmas to spend a month at the property, as requested by her grandfather, determined to sell the property only to find her childhood crush (and the man who thoroughly humiliated her) is intent on buying it to turn it into a high end hotel.

Evan Foss was the poor kid who was taken in by Stella's grandfather. His mother had a history of bad mistakes with men and he has been emotionally scarred

To honor her grandfather's final wish, Stella Jackson is going to spend the month leading up to Christmas at the estate she inherited from him in London. She can't stand the cold, dreariness of it there, and would rather be anywhere else, but she loved her grandfather and will do this one last thing for him.

Evan Foss adored her grandfather as well. He was mentored by him since he was a troubled teen and he helped shape him into the shrewd businessman he is toda

Stefanie London's books are always enjoyable. This one set in the English countryside surrounding London has the makings of a good book to curl up with on a frosty afternoon. The warmth of an English manor being readied for sale after the elderly grandfather dies, is the setting for a young Australian woman who comes home to the place of her childhood vacations to oversee the settling of the estate. The young man who was the grandfather's business protege' would like to buy it, but there's a sho ...more

One-Sentence Summary: Two past acquaintances are forced to spend Christmas together to determine the owner of an estate.

Review: It took me a little while to get into this book as the start wasn't particularly engaging. Evan/Stella's romance is pretty standard and plays out as expected with some cute moments between them.

As a Londoner, two things which jarred with me are: a) you certainly do not collect your baggage b

A charming romance set in the perfect local for a Christmas story, cold and snowy England. Through many miscommunications, misunderstandings and overall short sightedness, Stella and Evan finally found their HEA. Ms London does a fine job of creating just enough angst and tension to keep things lively between these two. When the emotional walls come down is when the heartstrings get tugged and the romance takes off. As with every one of this author's books, you will not be disappointed as this s ...more

I'm used to Stefanie London's more funny, lighthearted style. This book was different. It was more emotional and touched on some sad subjetcs like the death of loves ones. But I enjoyed the change.

Evan and stella were a great couple. They had a past which came into play in this story and there was a twist that really made the story enjoyable for me. I knew something was going to happen at the end of the book but I didn't pick what the twist was. But I won't spoil it for you ;)

This is a sweet second chance romance. To fulfill her grandfather's last wish, Stella returns to England to spend Christmas at estate she has inherited. Stella is not happy to be there especially with Evan being there. When Stella and Evan reunite the attraction is stronger than ever. Evan is there to convince Stella to sell the estate to him. Can they put their differences from the past behind them? I enjoyed this great book. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

Oh my goodness I felt so much sympathy for Stella. She was such a strong woman but was so alone. I wanted for her desperately to be happy. At times it seemed Evan could do that for her, but at others he was so wishy washy. But he won me back with his treatment of Ethel and the way he made everything up to Stella.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Stella has been betrayed over and over again. So trust doesn't come easy for her. Evan knows what it's like to have nothing. So if a little bet with Stella insures that he can secure the future that he wants and needs so be it.
A little different plot, both Stella and Evan are Millionaires.
