December Holiday Reviews 2012 – One A Day – #17

To get everyone into the mood for celebrating winter, the final month of the year, or any of the many religious and non-religious festivals that will occur this month, we’re showcasing reviews for a range of holiday-themed books here. One a day, and since the books on the web site are all from this year, we’re giving books from previous years some extra attention here on the blog. I hope you’ll join us in having a look at the “Golden Oldies”!

This story presents “a new twist on a Christmas season story”, reviewed by Lena, who thinks it is “a sweet, touching, uplifting story that will renew your faith in love”. You can also find the full review on the Rainbow Book Reviews site by clicking here.


Book Blurb

Magnus Carstens, an eminent glaciologist, recently had to change his life: he’s become his nephew Jakob’s guardian after the boy’s parents died in a plane crash, he’s taken a new job as a park ranger, and he’s moved them to Mistletoe, Wyoming, so he can offer a stable home to Jakob while still contributing to science. There he meets Lance Rivera, a disillusioned physical therapist who is working in his sister’s store to make a living after his lover took off with all their money. When the two men come together – literally under the mistletoe–both realize all they really want, despite adversity, is a family to love.

Book Review

A new twist on a Christmas season story. My first Serena Yates story and definitely not be my last! Serena weaves a wonderful tale of two very different men destined to complete each other. She had me cheering for them from the very beginning, especially for Lance. I was practically shouting “Come on Magnus! What are you waiting for? Step under that mistletoe and kiss that sweet boy!”

If you are looking for hard core, look somewhere else, but if you want to enjoy a sweet,touching, uplifting story that will renew your faith in love, The Mistletoe Phenomenon is a good choice. Serena’s descriptions were vivid and her characters clearly defined. I felt cold when they were cold and hot when they were….er…hot. READ IT! You will not be disappointed.
