This is the first in the series I've read so I'm not sure how much the previous stories might play into Caitlyn and Tanner's interactions.  I'm sure they've made appearances but I'm not sure how much that should influence reader's reaction to their love story.  Overall, though, the story does stand alone pretty well.  Mims does a fantastic job of making sure that new readers like me can keep up with anything that might trickle in from those other stories.

Emily Mims is a strong writer, and has added another compelling love story to her Smoky Blues series. Ms. Mims always delivers a delightful romance, and she has a habit of keeping the reader guessing what convention she's going to turn on its head. Perhaps that's the hallmark of a good writer. In Mistletoe, we meet Caitlyn Murphy, a curvier than average heroine, and Tanner Dyson, the proprietor of a not-so-appropriate business.
