December Kiss byKatie Mettner--A review

It is with great joy I bring to you today's review of December Kiss by Katie Mettner.


“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 

It’s nearly Christmas in Snowberry Minnesota, but Jay Alexander is feeling anything but jolly. Stuck in the middle of town square with a flat tire on his worn out wheelchair leaves him feeling grinchy. 

December Kiss has only been in Snowberry for a few months when she happens upon this broken down boy next door. His sandy brown hair and quirky smile has her hoisting his wheelchair into the back of her four horse Cherokee. 
When a December romance blooms Jay wants to give December just one thing for Christmas, her brother. Will Jay get his December Kiss under the mistletoe Christmas Eve?


I hadn't planned to read another of Katie's books for this year's December blog, but she offered a copy and I could hardly resist with this one last date open.   What an enjoyable afternoon I spent with this Christmas read!

Jay Alexander was the youngest of the Alexander brood, Dully's youngest brother.   He had special circumstances as he was born with spina bifada and spent his days in a wheelchair.....a very old and dilapidated untrustworthy wheel chair.   December Kiss was an RN at Providence Hospital in Snowberry Minnesota.   Their chance meeting and the romance that followed was a delight.

Katie Mettner writes spicy Christian romance stories about individuals who may endure special circumstances, but rise above all of it in their dreams and desires.   This story slowly revealed the painful truths in both Jay and Decembers pasts.  Although, they could have been driven forever apart, they strengthened their friendship and a budding romance began to build.    There was just one occurence of intimacy, that was not too explicit and I appreciated that.   The storyline was realistic and two people who had been wounded by their pasts, found peace with one another, strength together and joy.

This was the kind of Christmas story I could enjoy wholeheartedly.   It was not rushed and flowed smoothly from start to finish.    I gave a rating of 5 winks to this read.

Disclaimer:  I read for my pleasure.   I may receive ARC copies for review purposes, but I am not compensated for my reviews .  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. I received a complimentary copy from the author or the author’s representatives in exchange for an honest review.
