Mistletoe Mischeif by Stacey Joy Netzel///Review

Good Morning and Merry Christmas Peeps!    I am writing this review for my December blog in April, because I just finished this first in the series book above.    My plan is to read Christmas stories throughout the remainder of the year and then blog my reviews for December each day of the month.   At least you will know what I thought about the Christmas reads you may want to look into.

Mistletoe Mischief is a cute, fun and short holiday book....well okay, it's based on Christmas in July.   Does that count?    I vote yes!    Anyway, on with the review....the book is only 91 pages long, so it is a very fast read and it was fun and romantic!  Marissa Wilder is the mom of Heather, age 6 I believe.   Heather will be changing schools so she is going to summer school in order to meet new kids that will also attend her new school.   There she meets Reese Riley who is also six and rapidly the girls become BFFs.

On a field trip in July, Marissa has inadvertently become a chaperone;  volunteered parents cancelled last minute and she can not disappoint her sweet daughter.   The outing takes them to a zoo where Reese's dad joins them.   His name is Eric and he's divorced as is Marissa.   With the help of Mr and Mrs Claus at the zoo, The two single parents learn that there are rules about mistletoe and they need to be followed.   Especially when there are two 6 year old girls enforcing said rules.

This was a fun read and although short, the characters were well developed, the plot and storyline well thought out and overall the book was enjoyable.   I am used to far longer books, but sometimes it's nice to squeeze in a quickie that can pull at your heart strings.   Thanks Stacey, a very enjoyable read and I'm looking forward to Mistletoe Magic and Mistletoe Match Up as well!  

Disclaimer:  I read for my pleasure.   I may receive ARC copies for review purposes, but I am not compensated for my reviews .  In this case, I purchased Mistletoe Mischief for my Kindle. I like to read and I like to share my reviews.   I post my thoughts without prejudice or bias.  The words are mine and I write reviews based on my humble opinion.  I will admit, I seldom meet a book I don't like.
