The Trouble with Mistletoe ~ Jill Shalvis

Today's 12 days of Christmas book is The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis! I normally stick with Indie Christmas books, but I read The Trouble with Mistletoe back in July as part of Christmas in July and loved it, so I wanted to share it here this year!

(A standalone Heartbreaker Bay novel)

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 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 . . .

I loved The Trouble With Mistletoe for the fun, energetic characters, the holiday cheer, the uniqueness of Willa and Keane, and the different perspective on Christmas in California for this Midwestern girl! Willa is a true original, as most of Jill's characters are. She's funny, sweet, cute, and loves animals, but mostly she's afraid to fall for someone because she might get her heart broken, again. Enter Keane Winters to her pet shop, heartthrob, and also the first guy to break her heart. She knows it, he doesn't, and what follows is a good old-fashioned romp of  "girl is defensive, guy doesn't know why."

Willa slowly learns to trust Keane and when the truth comes out, everything changes for her. She has to ask herself one question this Christmas. Is she in love with Keane Winters? The answer is yes, but that question was easy. The hard one is, what is she going to do about it?

If you're looking for a romantic Christmas story filled with cats, dogs, friends, hot guys, and enough steam to rival your cup of hot cocoa, grab The Trouble With Mistletoe to read today!

I give The Trouble with Mistletoe 5 cups of extra sexy whipped cream topped hot cocoa!
