This was such a heartwarming book!
This book tells three different romance stories and all of them were so cute and uplifting. They all had the common thread of finding love in unexpected places, which I loved. I liked how the author balanced the three stories. Griffin’s story seemed to get the most screen time but didn’t overshadow the other two. The other two stories got the proper attent ...more
If they had to carry all their shortcomings in a sack, they’d both be permanently bent over.
You’re the oldest, Griff. You go first. At thirty-four, you’re about to go from ripe to rotten anyway.
“You don’t believe in soul mates?” “Sure. Mom’s found three so far. Every time she leaves a husband, she rolls back her age like rewinding the odometer on a car. I’ve heard husband number three is closer to my age than hers.”
It must have been dark. She’s not the kind of girl ...more

The romance between these three couples is one aspect of Mistletoe Miracles that I really cherished. This isn’t the instalove type of romance. It’s the kind of romance the builds over the course of the novel as the characters get to know each other. Of the three couples, I treasured the Johnson’s story the most. I defini ...more

In the beginning I did have a little trouble with the three interlocking characters' stories. This only transpired for the first couple of chapters. After, this it was easy to keep the different characters' stories separate for the most part. They still interacted with one another.

I can’t really explain why, but I just love the way author Jodi Thomas tells a story. I’m thinking it’s probably one of those “less is more” things. It’s good. It’s cozy. I was engaged from the very start. If I ever have the opportunity to curl up next to a crackling fire ...more

The feeling I got while reading Mistletoe Miracles is why I will read any book Jodi Thomas writes. I read the first few pages and was quickly drawn into the charming and warm novel. I smiled as the Holloways found the solution needed to save their ranch; as the local hermit was thrust into a situation that forced him out of his self-imposed shell; and as fiction turned into reality for the high school drama teacher.
Mistletoe Miracles is fun, emotional and eve ...more

Finally you have Jamie Johnson, a school teacher, who lies about being married to keep unwanted suitors at bay. Jamie comes home from a weekend field ...more
So, this is really three stories. All with equally ridiculous premises. I mean, my saying that is a lot because I regularly read romance novels that are about as far from realistic as sci-fi books set on the moon.
First, we have Griffin Holloway. He owns a ra ...more
