Mistletoe Mischief (A Romancing Wisconsin Holiday Story)
by Stacey Joy Netzel
It all starts with a kids school trip to the zoo, and one father who is late, and one mother who is somewhat peeved, and two little girls who are best friends.
Eric snapped his slack jaw closed when Marissa Wilder swept past him in a huff. Wow. Someone had a major attitude, and she’d decided to direct it at the bull’s-eye he must be wearing on his chest.
The story gets more interesting when one of the little girls almost falls into the giraffe enclosure. And a twisted ankle only serves to intensify the story.
At five feet seven inches without shoes, she must weigh three times what his daughter did, yet he strode down the platform steps as if she were as light as his six year old daughter.
The sparks fly in the zoo as Eric and Marissa can’t ignore the attraction they feel for each other.
What he wouldn't give to be completely alone with her for this first kiss.
It even includes a jolly ‘Christmas in July’ Santa that gives Eric a sprig of mistletoe along with some sage advice. What starts at the zoo continues at Eric’s home, and ends up in some serious romance.
This is a delightful book that will leave you wanting to read more of the series. And anytime the end of a book leaves you interested in more, but still satisfied with the book you've read, then the writer has done their job well. If you like this book, you will want to read the others in the series, and my advice is to get the boxed set. It’s the best deal, and includes a bonus story.
Keep a watch for my reviews of the other books in this series.
