How the moose (almost) stole Christmas.

Lana Montgomery is everything the quirky small town of Moose Springs, Alaska can't stand: a rich socialite with dreams of changing things for the better. But Lana's determined to prove that she belongs...even if it means trading her stilettos for snow boots and tracking one of the town's hairiest Christmas mysteries: the Santa Moose,

Sarah Morgenthaler Hi! You can read Mistletoe as a stand alone, but there are characters from the first story that show up in this one too.

When you’re in the middle of never ending, nerve bending, incessantly hearing nails on chalkboard sound in your head kind of Pandemic, reading something make you feel Christmas spirit could be your only life west not to drown at the pessimism sea!

This is truly vivid, enjoyable, sweet and soul healing recipe! We need this book to get through our stressful days and keep smile without thinking any further. It brightens our dark moods, heals our exhausted hearts and melts our hearts.

This should have been my Christmas in July read, but it was my Christmas in August read instead (and yes, I am aware that's not a thing).

I was pretty happy to see that my wish was granted, and I got the opportunity to read and review Mistletoe and Mr. Right via Netgalley.

The story takes place in Alaska and it really captures small town vibe, with it's characters, their mentality and the descriptions of the place.

This is a Christmas Romance Book, and it is the second book in the Moose Springs, Alaska series. I am so very glad that my wish for this book was granted. This book had me at the first sentence. There is so many parts of this book that made me laugh so hard (a giant penis carved out of snow on a mountainside, Santa Moose, the squirrel b&b, tranquilizer dart, and the Santa Suit two sizes to small). This book is so much more then just a romance because it is a little hearted funny with a little ro ...more

It feels harsh to say this, but this book REALLY needed more editing. It was just WAY too long with way too many superfluous details and plot lines and it just.. did not work for me. Big womp.

A cute romance and an attention grabbing first sentence to start off the book. Normally it takes me a few chapters before I have decided whether or not to stick with a book, but not with this one. That first sentence hooked and reeled me in.

Lana Montgomery works for the Montgomery Group which is owned and run by her wealthy family. She is determined to get her luxury condominium project up and running in one of her favorite places in the world, Moose Springs, Alaska. The locals though aren't to

This book wasn’t quite as enjoyable for me as the first in the series, but this is a series I’ll continue to read because it does have heart.

I did like Rick and Lana a lot. Small town man in love with big city businesswoman is one of my things, and Rick is such a sweet man.

The problems I had with this were similar to the first book. These books are far too long. There are so many unnecessary story

Mistletoe and Mr. Right by Sarah Morgenthaler is adorable and fun, and another example of why I’ve been loving holiday rom-coms lately.

In this book, we return to the quirky small town of Moose Springs, Alaska. Lana isn’t the most popular person in town since her family’s company bought up most of the town, and she plans to build luxury condominiums in Moose Springs. Many town residents would prefer to keep tourists away even if it causes businesses to struggle more.

It is a great idea for a book; two lonely people finding love during Christmas time in a small Alaskan town. Sadly, the idea is better than the actual book. I had a hard time getting into it and I am sure I will soon forget all about it. I love the setting of a small town during holiday time in Alaska. Unfortunately, the romance part of the book is lacking. Lana and Rick's love story is just not interesting, believable, or enough for a such long book.

This story is not holding my attention. The MCs are a bit bland and I'm not feeling any chemistry between them. There's too much focus on Lana's family business. I'm not interested in reading about huge corporations and investments.
Not what I expected from a story with such a lovely setting.

I liked this one more than the first one and Lana and Rick are so sweet together. Rick in general is such a sweetie. It’s nice to take a break from the grouchy men and just have a hero who is nervous and overwhelmed.

This is the second book about the small town of Moose Springs, Alaska. I just finished listening to The Tourist Attraction, which I enjoyed very much. I am so glad that I listened to it as the narrator, Elise Arsenault, is wonderful, and I could just imagine the characters' voices in this second book.

It's not that this follow-up is a bad story, it's just a little blah. I didn't feel it was as much of a romantic comedy as the first book. Lana is in Moose Springs looking for her happy, but she isn

Mistletoe and Mr. Right is a sweet, small town romance set in Alaska. Ever since I read The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker I’ve been looking for other novels that take place in Alaska and I’m so glad I found that in these books. There’s just something magical about the setting to me and I would love to visit the area one day!

That being said, I really enjoyed this novel. Some parts were a little too slow for me, but when I get down to the bones of
I didn't particularly love the 1st book in this series, I just thought it was okay. However, I can't really resist a book set in Alaska with a super cute cover.

In my last review I said I loved the two main characters in the book: Graham and Zoey. I also said that I thought Lana was okay, but couldn't stand any of the parts involving Lana's group of wealthy snobs. This book was all about Lana, so I was a little hesitant to even begin with. Fortunately, it was just mainly about her and didn't incl

This was a sweet friends to lovers romcom. It featured lots of slapstick moments that had me laughing out loud (and rolling my eyes a bit). I enjoyed it overall, but I can't quite put my finger on why I didn't love it. The hero, Rick, is pure cinnamon roll goodness and the heroine, Lana, is caring, smart, and driven. I'm just not sure why they didn't mesh well together for me. I was certainly rooting for them, but I just didn't feel that spark or connection. There were a few too many side storie ...more

This was a great follow up in the series and the characters are so lovable. This was a laugh out loud hilarious story with the same witty banter from the first book. Rick and Lana couldn’t be more different but their attraction is so palpable and your yearning for more. Onto the next in the series.

"Rick realized something very important about Lana Montgomery. That breezy smile of hers, the one she used no matter the situation? It was total bullshit."

Morgenthaler hits it out of the park again with her sophomore novel.

Thank you to Sourcebooks and Netgalley for this gifted copy. All opinions are my own.

Sooo I almost DNF'd this book. I was at 20% of the book and realized I was only on chapter 3 and nothing was happening. The chapters are incredibly long and pacing extremely slow. The second half got better in terms of plot but I really wasn't feeling Lana. I couldn't tell if she was 30 or 50 with the number of "Dearest" she used with everybody. I dislike overuse of pet names in general but this was super cring

The Tourist Attraction is one of my favourites of the year, so I was eagerly anticipating Mistletoe & Mr. Right. This was a perfect addition to the series, and I unexpectedly loved it even more than book one.

Rick stole my heart with his gentle soul, quiet lifestyle, and festively dressed hedgehog. As owner of the local pool hall on the verge of closure, it was such a sweet, opposites-attract romance with Lana, heir of the powerful real estate empire planning to expand in Moose Springs.

As a succe
Cute. Lots of precious feelings and growth. I will definitely go back and read the first one in this series since they bring the couple in to the story so much more than you normally see in ‘sequel’ romances.

This was an enjoyable, humorous, and emotional holiday read. Across the span of this novel, I felt like I experienced the full range of human emotions from laughing at the sarcastic humour to being emotionally distraught and close to tears. Even though that may not sound positive it was an attestant to the novel's success in development to be able to provoke all of those emotions in one book.

This is a charming book with enough witty dialogue to make you laugh throughout.  From an obscene snow sculpture to a moose hunt, what better way to meet this town than through laughter.

This is the second in a series and while I haven't read the first one (yet), this book can be read as a standalone but you would have a better introduction to the town and some of its residents including Zooey and Graham who meet in the first book.

This is a perfect read for the holiday season!

We first visited Moose Springs in Tourist Attraction, and I was thrilled to come back and see some of my favourite characters. Graham and Zoey, the couple from the first book, are just as adorable as ever, and we get to see firsthand just how smitten they still are with each other.

Sarah Morgenthaler has a very humorous writing style. I think that she might be my favourite rom com writer, along with Lyssa Kay Adams and her Bromance Book Club series.

I really liked this one way better than the first one. We have an opposites attract romance featuring characters who really have their own goals they want to set out and accomplish. Our main female character is hella strong and wants to run her family business while saving a small town and our main male character is scarred from his divorce. I enjoyed this one!

Lana was an interesting character in book one and it was interesting to follow her in this book…in the beginning. It was nice that we already have a love interest from the start, but also that there's another story besides the romance. I thought we’ll see her struggles to make the complexes in Moose Springs, and her trying to catch the Santa Moose. However, what was promised was not delivered.

The writing is easy and makes the book go smoothly, but the prob
