In order to buy in to Mistletoe Cottage by Debbie Mason, you have to suspend disbelief a little more than is usually required of the reader of a romantic novel.
First of all, Sophie, the heroine, doesn’t know who the real father of her child is. Huh?
The spirit of the great grandmother of Liam, the hero, is roaming around the premises and can be seen only by the cute daughter of the protagonists and the cat.
It may sound like I didn’t enjoy this book, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. I like the way Mason writes, and after all, this is set at Christmas time when miracles are supposed to happen, right?
I found the supporting cast of characters more interesting than the leads. Most of the characters involved in the book are keeping secrets that I assume will be dealt with in future Harmony Harbor books. I particularly liked the heroine’s very Italian grandmother who is a hoot and the stern butler with a soft heart. The bridezilla was fun too.
This is one of those books that make you say, “Awww” when it’s over.
