The Mistletoe Inn by Richard Paul Evans... A Review

Richard Paul Evans writes the most wonderful Christmas stories and The Mistletoe Inn is no exception. It is a heartwarming story about love and second chances, that will touch your heart in all the right places like a nice cup of cocoa on a cold winter's night.

Kim is a thirty something working in a car dealership and hoping for her dreams of having her first book published. She's been through the ringer with romance and a devastating tragedy in her family. Zeke is a handsome, seems too good to be true, wonderful guy, Kim meets at a writers conference at the Mistletoe Inn. But Zeke has a few skeleton's in his closet too. When the two become writing buddies and the butterflies start to flutter, Kim needs to learn how to accept love into her life again and learn to trust again. But love is a little complicated for these two and... you'll have to read the story to find out the rest! This is a sweet, tender story that will not disappoint. Richard Paul Evans also does a wonderful job of dealing with aspects of depression and suicide, which is something that had touched Kim's life in the story.

My reading group usually reads a "Christmas" story for the Holiday break, and this was our choice this year. Everyone enjoyed it and it really is perfect for this time of year. It is a light, ultimately uplifting story. The chapters are short & sweet, and the writing itself is inviting. And let me tell you one more thing, it's a wonderful romance without the need for sex to warm up the pages!

I give this 4 Mistletoes! And I want to thank Simon & Schuster for sending along a copy for my reading pleasure and honest review!
