Review of Christmas on Mistletoe Lane (Sweetwater Springs #1) by Annie Rains

“…I’ll try to be the man you deserve.”


Genre: Holiday Romance

Length: 432 Pages

POV: Third Person


Christmas is coming to the North Carolina mountains, and the air is fresh and crisp and filled with promise. After the devastating loss of her job in the big city, the small town of Sweetwater Springs feels like heaven to Kaitlyn Russo. She’s inherited her grandparents’ charming (if a little rundown) bed and breakfast, and it’s just the new lease on life she needs. Only “heaven” comes with a catch-and a handsome and completely infuriating one at that.

After what he hopes will be a quick trip, Mitch Hargrove wants nothing more than to put his hometown in the rearview mirror. But his plans get derailed when he learns he’s now half-owner of the Sweetwater B&B. The fact that he’s given only two months to make the inn a success is a huge problem, but it’s his pretty-and incredibly headstrong-partner who’s the real challenge. With the holiday fast approaching and a grand re-opening looming, will Mitch keep running from the ghosts of Christmas past . . . or will he realize the true gift he’s been given?

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from Grand Central Publishing – Forever via NetGalley.*

Kaitlyn inherited her grandparent’s bed in breakfast, which was perfect because she needed something good to happen in her life. A new beginning. What she didn’t anticipate was being only partial owner.

Mitch didn’t want to own a bed and breakfast. He surely didn’t want to be back in his home town. He wanted to walk away from it all, but something about Kaitlyn convinced him to follow through with the terms of the will. Then he planned to leave as quickly as possible.

Fortunately for Kaitlyn and Mitch grandmothers can play matchmaker even from beyond.

I absolutely loved the B&B guests. They all brought a uniqueness to the story that made it feel more realistic.

Christmas on Mistletoe Lane is the perfect way to put you in that loveable holiday mood. The characters are well developed and the storyline is full of little quirks and humorous moments that keep you entertained.
