Happy hump day book lovers!
Delighted to share with you today another charming holiday story! A huge thank you to Rachel for my invitation to the tour and Emily Harvale for her lovely story!🎄❄️
It’ll take a miracle to make Juliet’s Christmas merry, but Mistletoe Row is the place to be when you need some Christmas magic.
The last person Juliet Bell expects to see when she returns home for Christmas is Harrison Bow.Especially with the most beautiful woman in the world by his side. Twenty years ago, Juliet and Harrison had the shortest romance in history, consisting of one date – and one blazing row. But Juliet will never admit when she’s wrong, and Harrison doesn’t forgive easily, so they haven’t seen, or spoken to one another since.
Harrison Bow vowed he’d never visit his grandfather at The Grange, again, or drive along Mistletoe Row, the scene of one of the unhappiest times of his life. He hasn’t been back for twenty years and he’s only here now because his brother pleaded with him to come. At least with his executive assistant joining him, he’ll be able to do some work.
But Juliet’s sister, Zoe and Harrison’s brother, Luke have some surprises in store for their elder siblings, and so it seems does Fate. After Harrison risks his life to save Juliet, the least she can do is be nice. The problem is, Harrison is hotter than the log fire in The Mistletoe pub, and when she’s surrounded by twinkling lights and softly falling snow, it doesn’t take long for her to realise she’s in love with the man she thought she hated. Even if he doesn’t appear to be in love with her.
A short but sweet second chance romance that will put a big smile on your face!
This was a fun festive story filled with fabulousness! I had never heard of Emily Harvale before the beginning of this year and now she is an automatic YES for me! Her books are set in the most charming of places with the most whimsical of characters…
This story had a bit of a Hatfield and McCoy vibe but instead it was the Bells and the Bows, clever, right? 20 years ago Harrison and Juliet had a brief but intense romance… after years of being apart, some miscommunication, and Harrison‘s family acquiring Juliet’s beloved family house, is it possible that these two have a second chance? Well you’ll need to read this charming story to find that out!
Loved every thing about the story the lovely village, the beautiful home, the skating pond, and of course the wonderful characters! Harrison and Juliet were both flawed but simply lovely! All the secondary characters were equally as wonderful even though some of them weren’t terribly likable, they were all well developed….A perfect holiday read… with the perfect gift at the end, I was excited to find out that there will be another book in the Lily Pond Lane series… another must read along with this delightful story!
Absolutely recommend as the perfect Christmas treat complete with a Bow and a Bell on top!🎁
