The Trouble With Mistletoe: Heartbreaker Bay
The Trouble With Mistletoe: Heartbreaker Bay | Jill Shalvis
The Trouble With Mistletoe is the second in New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis's Heartbreaker Bay series, featuring her trademark gift for humour, warmth and romance. Perfect for fans of Jill Mansell, Debbie Macomber, Nora Roberts and Marie Force. If she has her way... Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn't even remember her... He'll get nothing but coal in his stocking. Saddled with his great-aunt's Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else's capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he's sure he's never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him... Unless he tempers 'naughty' with a special kind of nice... Willa can't deny that Keane's changed since high school: he's less arrogant, for one thing - but he doesn't even remember her. How can she trust him not to break her heart again? It's time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish - and let the mistletoe do its work... Want more warm, funny romance? Check out the first Heartbreaker Bay novel, Sweet Little Lies, visit gorgeous Cedar Ridge, spellbinding Lucky Harbor or experience some Animal Magnetism in Sunshine, Idaho in Jill's other unforgettable series.

I can always count on Shalvis to deliver a steamy romance with great characters. Willa has to get past her abandonment feelings to accept love. The angst drags on a bit because there isn‘t much else hanging up their hea. Lots of good Christmas cheer and this group of friends is amazing. #readwomen #romantsy #holidayreads

I‘ve been struggling with reading anything for the longest time. I start a book and don‘t finish. Not because it‘s bad. They‘ve all been great. My mind just won‘t let me relax enough to focus. I want to try and get a few Christmas themed books read this month and can‘t decide on which one. I‘ve read a few pages in each and can‘t choose.

AmyG I enjoyed Seven Days of Us. Fun read. 7mo
Jovy I‘ve only read Seven Days of Us and it was ok for me. One Day in December sounds interesting though! 7mo
gradcat I haven‘t read any of those, but I‘m having mind-wandering problems too...maybe it‘s the season? 7mo
tracey38 Jill Shalvis books are always great, quick reads for me. I'm reading Hot Winter Night now. Well, not NOW, as I am at work unfortunately... 😯 7mo

The female friendship here is wonderful and, at times, hilarious. They are so supportive of each other. This also goes for the men in this core group when present. Petunia is so much fun. She is either the antichrist or a sweet cat depending on if you ask Keane or Willa (respectively). And, of course, there's the romance between Keane and Willa - touching, hilarious and steamy in turn. If you're looking for a fun read I'd recommend this series.

Last post, I promise - but I‘m glad I did a couple so I could show it all off. 😝 I am SO excited for these books - I need another Xmas romance to round out my holiday reading, I can‘t wait to read World War Moo (it looks so funny!) and even a yoga book! And the best Rudolph quote on a bookmark. Thank you Nicole! You are awesome at Secret Santa-ing!! ❤️😊👏

This series is all standalones, but I'm glad I read #1 first. Features Willa and Keane who aren't really a second chance romance, but sort of more like a redemption story. Turns out they went to high school together but he didn't realize he broke her heart (not a spoiler). Love the entire cast, love the humor, love the pet cat. Love that both are business owners-Willa's pet shop is amazing -> she specializes in pet daycare + weddings! #romantsy

mcipher Sounds like a nice winter vacation read. ❤️ 2y

This is a definitely must read! After #sweetlittlelies and getting to know Willa, this book is a must to read about her and her HEA. She's a owner of a pet grooming shop and surrounded with animals she ❤️, friends whom she ❤️ and vice versa. She's implementing her no man policy when Keane Winters walked through her shop carrying a pink carrier. #kindle #ebook #romance #jillshalvis #goodbook

Another Christmas book! Kinda looking forward to Christmas now. Another good one by Jill Shalvis. I admit, my favorite character in the book is Petunia the cat. But everyone else was good too. This is Book 2 of the Heartbreaker Bay series.

“But then you went ahead and told me you‘ve read Harry Potter.” She hesitated and considered him. “Which one?”
“All of them.”
She covered her face and moaned miserably. “All of them,” she muttered. “I‘m a dead woman. You‘ve just killed me dead.”
“I read a lot,” he said, trying to improve his odds. “Not just Harry Potter.”
“Making it worse . . .”

The book I'm reading next - The Trouble With Mistletoe, by an author whose books always make me laugh - Jill Shalvis. When I discovered her books, I went on a rampage and read most of them. She's an excellent story-teller. Her characters are usually fun.

Finish up The Trouble With Mistletoe, work on my TBR for October, and drink lots of tea and coffee under the warm covers today. Michigan is getting too cold for me already. 📚🍰☕️ #FridayReads

SHOULD old acquaintance be forgot?
In this case...the answer is yes, most definitely!

With characters that will touch your heart, and a story that will set your night on fire (in more ways than the obvious), this is a must read for Contemporary Romance fans in the adult reader category.

I was lucky enough to read this book pre-pub, and it's wonderful! The heroine is snarky, vulnerable, and owns a pet store. The hero, in her words: 'A guy stood on the other side of the glass, mouth grim, expression dialed to Tall, Dark, and Attitude-ridden." And then she recognizes him... totally fun!! #romantsy

Had a chance to be an early reader for this book and again, Jill doesn't disappoint! Heartbreaker Bay series is fantastic for the quick, romance hunger you may feel.
