Perfect! This is everything you could ask for in a Christmas novella—unless you want vampires, in which case, you’re out of luck. There’s even a kind of resurrection, so it’s a little like Christmas and Easter all at once! Lol. But seriously, after believing Will Sinclair died in a bombing in Afghanistan, readers will be just excited as his own family to discover he’s actually been held hostage all this time.

As is always the case with Jenny B. Jones’ books, the banter between Will and Cordelia i

'He wanted joy to be possible for someone like him.'

After spending 4 years in an Afghanistan prison, journalist Will Sinclair is rescued and comes to the small town of Sugar Creek, Arkansas to recoup, trying to write his memoirs and get back to living a normal life. As if. His meddling family decides to come to him when he won't respond to their numerous texts and calls. Will loves his family but just wants to be left alone. To that end, he decides to maybe get them off his back by having a girl

His Mistletoe Miracle is a fun, light Christmas story that includes the smart, slightly irreverent wit I've come to expect from Jenny B. Jones. Combine quirky characters, charming banter, and a swoony guy. Then add a pinch of Christmas kitsch and you've got yourself a delightful Christmas read!

(Note: You do not have to have read the other Sugar Creek novels or Save the Date to enjoy this story!)

Adorable, clean Christmas read! Felt like I was reading (a less cheesy) Hallmark movie. Perfect read for this time of year. While I wouldn’t necessarily wear Cordelia’s wardrobe 😜, her spunk amdnlobe for Christmas was endearing. And every time Will held Isaiah, I think I actually melted. ❤And I LOVED seeing Alex and Lucy again as well as briefly seeing Finley and Beckett. It felt like a sweet little epilogue to their stories since we got to see them in the future. I like how the books are all ti ...more

A FUN and hilarious romantic story that also balanced a meaningful message of growth and even the fallout of a traumatic experience. With plenty of snarky, laugh-out-loud moments, Will and Cordelia navigate their newfound pretend "relationship" through holiday traditions and family gatherings, all the while really getting to know each other and prodding each other toward greater purpose. I hope to catch up on the rest of the "Sugar Creek" stories soon!

Fun note: this is another Arkansas-set story

So good that I read it within a couple of days- it’s the perfect continuation of the Sinclair’s story. Sweet and Christmassy with classic humor. I didn’t want to put it down!

Such a cute and quick read. Flew through this fun and sweet novella.

You had me at Will Sinclair! A lovely, light, fun and heart-warming read. Full of Jenny B Jones’ signature sass, the best citizens of Sugar Creek, and my favorite holiday read this year.

I could give this book 10 STARS I absolutely would!!!

His Mistletoe Miracle (2018) by Jenny B. Jones is the third book in her Sugar Creek Novel series. This book comes in eBook form, and is 200 pages in length. With a full-time job and a very busy six-year old at home, this novel took me less than one day to read. I purchased this novel from Amazon on December 13, 2018 in order to review. In no way has this influenced my opinion of the book. All opinions expressed in this review are my own. I giv

This was adorable. A Hallmark movie in book form and perfect for the holidays. I loved meeting Will (finally!) and Cordelia, and getting glimpses of past characters was pretty fun too. Although Will’s past makes this books a little more weighted, the story never dips into depressing territory, and I liked the humor that gave this a bit more of a lighter tone. Both Will and Cordelia have a lot going on in their lives, and I enjoyed the sweet romance that builds between them. These two are a great ...more

In another lifetime Will and Cordelia would’ve been a match so perfect that no other could rival them, but this is reality and life got in the way!

Will is trying to put back together the pieces of his life and Cordelia is trying to keep hers as well as others from imploding! When a meddlesome landlord gets her way these two are thrown together and a desperate need has Will calling Cordelia his! They have only a couple of weeks and a handful of engagements to get through together to both get wha

His Mistletoe Miracle is the first story I’ve read by Jenny B. Jones, but it won’t be my last! I loved this Christmas story and am so glad I picked this one up! This was the perfect Christmas read for me!

I loved both Will and Cordelia! Their banter was spot on. I loved Cordelia’s inner dialogue and love of all things Christmas! Will was the perfect match for Cordelia and I loved his family! While the thread of Will’s capture in Afghanistan could’ve totally weighed down the story, it totally did

A confection of Christmas perfection...
A return to Sugar Creek brings some old and new characters together for a phenomenal romantic Christmas story. Will Sinclair is dealing with survivor’s guilt after years of captivity In Afghanistan. He comes to have peace and a time to heal in Sugar Creek. However, once word gets out that he is there, he gets no peace. He decides he needs a fake girlfriend to help him with his family this Christmas Season. I loved seeing the rest of the Sinclair family from

A sweet, Christmassy story featuring a heroine with a foster baby (which is probably my favorite thing about this novella), a smirking, brooding hero, and the kind of humor that only Jenny B. Jones can write. Read this.

If nothing else, you need to know that I seldom pay for books, I wait until I can get a library hold, or possibly
Kindle Unlimited access. But, I *paid* for this book, because I was that excited to read it (and finished it off within 24 hours of purchase). What's more, I don't reg

I read this quickly because I just couldn't stop! A fake relationship pulls me in every single time. Will and Cordelia made me laugh with their snarky comments, and Cordelia and her over-the-top affection for Christmas was quite funny as well. There's plenty of swoon-worthy because Will and Cordelia have unmistakable chemistry. This author is fantastic at crafting unique characters in a quirky small town setting. I found myself tearing up at the deeper themes in this novel (no spoilers here thou ...more

“His Mistletoe Miracle” is a fun sassy read. Will Sinclair comes to Sugar Creek, after being a POW, to get away from his overbearing family. Will meets Cordelia Daring and Isaiah her foster child. Will’s idea of a fake girlfriend to navigate the holidays makes a touching story about foster care and the love of family set at Christmas time.
With a cameo of everyone’s favorite Syliva and Frannie.

Sincerely charming. Jones resurrects a character I have very much longed to meet: Will Sinclair. As always, the spiritual thread is relatable and insightful. I did find it a bit repetitive that twin brothers would have such similar love stories. (See Save the Date!) *Shrugs* When it's Christmassy with all the feels of Hallmark but none of the cheese, it's everything a holiday read should be.

I’ve always loved Jenny B. Jones, I’ve read all her books! This book did not let me down! I found Will to be a completely different person than I had pictured based on the other books, which was a nice surprise. I love the entire Sinclair family, this was a great finish to the family saga (I’m assuming, if not I’ll read the next one too!)

This was a great story with lots of heart (and you'll find it particularly enjoyable if you read Save the Date and There You'll Find Me). I must admit I haven't loved the Enchanted Events series (just find the humor a bit over the top - more sitcom-esque and less Hallmark movie) but this was a perfect accompaniment to my hot beverage on a few chilly afternoons

I adore Jenny B. Jones! And I love her books, too! Jones has a gift for making you laugh out loud with one clever line, and then tear up for an ugly cry immediately after. It's an emotional literary carnival ride and I always love every single word.

5 stars for the story minus 1 star for so many editing mistakes.
A thoroughly enjoyable Christmas read.

I loved this book! The author writes so vividly - it really does read as though you’re watching a beautiful Hallmark Christmas movie.
Are you in need of a cozy Christmas rom-com with more substance (and less cheese) than what made-for-TV movies offer? Look no further than this new release by Jenny B. Jones, His Mistletoe Miracle.

What I Loved

The Characters
Both Cordelia and Will lept from the pages! I could easily relate to Will's struggle of facing writer's block, and emphasized with Cordelia's dilemma of choosing whether to quit her office job to pursue her dream career. Plus, they were both beyond adorable together! <3

Four-time Carol Award winner Jenny B. Jones writes contemporary romance with wit, sass, and Southern charm. Since writing for both women and teens leaves her with very little free time, she believes in spending her spare hours in meaningful, intellectual pursuits, such as watching E!, going to the movies and inhaling large buckets of popcorn, and writing her name in the dust on her furniture. www. ...more
