Blog Tour: Review of Mistletoe Miracles by Jodi Thomas

Author: Jodi Thomas
Publisher: Harlequin
Date of publication: October 2018

Griffin Holloway is desperate: the Maverick Ranch has been in his family for generations, but lately, it’s a money pit. He’d sooner marry one of his horses than sell the ranch. Marriage, though, could be a solution. If he can woo a wealthy bride, he might save the ranch—just in time for Christmas.

Jaxon O’Grady likes his solitude just fine, thank you very much. But when a car accident brings the unexpected to his door, he realizes just how much one person can need another.

Crossroads is the perfect place for Jamie Johnson: avoiding nosy questions about why she’s single, she’s happy to keep to her lakeside home. So she’s baffled when she gets the strangest Christmas present of all, in the form of a Mr. Johnson, asleep on her sofa. Who is he, and why does everyone think he’s her husband?

In this uplifting novel, three unlikely couples discover just what Crossroads, Texas, can offer: romance, belonging, and plenty of Christmas spirit.

Mistletoe Miracles is actually 3 little novellas intertwined into one story.  The three stories are not really connected and could have been written separately, but I liked this format.  I'm not sure I would really say Christmas is a huge part of book, really it could have taken place at anytime of the year.  Still, I did enjoy the book and it held up well as a stand alone.

You do have to suspend some disbelief while reading this one.  Each love story takes place over a month or so, so there is a lot of insta-love.  Out of the three, I liked Jaxon's story the most.  His was really sweet and very healing.  The Johnsons was cute as well.  The one I liked least was Griffin's story as I felt the least connected to the couple.  I would recommend this one.  It's a fairly clean romance and pretty quick read.
