“The Mistletoe Effect is a little naughty, a little nice and whole lot of Christmas love.  Getting geared up for some holiday spirit? This is the novella for you!” ~ Under the Covers

I’m a bit behind on reviewing this book or call it early since it’s a Christmas themed story.  I read this book early this month and is my first holiday themed book for the year.  The Mistletoe Effect is a little naughty, a little nice and whole lot of Christmas love.  Getting geared up for some holiday spirit? This is the novella for you!

The Texas Hill Country Resort is known for The Mistletoe Effect, A fifty-year record of divorce free marriages that takes place in the first twenty-five days of December. This year that streak is at risk which Carina Briscoe will try to save with the help of cowboy, James Decker.  Oh, he’s more than willing to help but with conditions that will knock Carina out of her high heels.

I enjoyed Cutler’s short story. I’ve always enjoyed her writing and the story she delivers.  In this case, a sweet, funny and a hot read. I’d really prefer this book was longer though. There’s so much more to tell, IMO.

I’m not sure what Ms. Cutler’s plans are but this can be a start of a good small town series. It’s complete with meddling family members, nosy town, and a grandma who thinks she knows everything.  I’m definitely hoping for more.

About Melissa Cutler

Melissa Cutler knows she has the best job in the world, dividing her time between her dual passions for writing sexy contemporary romances and edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense for Harlequin, Penguin, and Kensington Books.

She was struck at an early age by an unrelenting travel bug and is probably planning her next vacation as you read this. When she's not globetrotting, she's enjoying Southern California's flip-flop wearing weather and wrangling two rambunctious kids.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
