Olivia has never experienced a snow-covered, ‘traditional’ Christmas before. Having grown up in a family that chose winter sun over decking the halls, she’s not sure what all the fuss is about. So when she and her co-workers are stranded in New York after a work trip, Olivia is perfectly happy spending the holiday season in The Big Apple.
John, Olivia’s friend, on the other hand is so upset and is desperate to get home in time for his big family get-together. Nevertheless, determined to make the best out of the situation he sets out to show Olivia how enchanting Christmas in New York can be. And when she adds handsome New Yorker Elijah into the mix, could the magic of the season finally be working its charm on Olivia? As December 25th draws closer, Olivia suddenly finds herself with a decision to make: who does she really want to kiss under the mistletoe this Christmas?
Full of romance and festive magic, Mistletoe on 34th Street is the funniest and most charming love story you will read this Christmas!
My review: I’ve read books by Lisa Dickenson before, so when I got offered a chance to read her latest Christmas offering I jumped at it! I really enjoy Christmas books, particularly where there is snow and romance involved, so this book looked perfect for me.
Olivia is a career girl who is asked to step into her bosses shoes in New York for the annual work trip to a conference. She’s not massively into Christmas (just like me!) and normally spends the festive period in the sun rather than wrapping up warm. When Olivia and her colleagues are due to return to the UK, freak weather at home means that flights are cancelled and she is unable to get there, meaning a Christmas spent in the Big Apple.
One of the best things about this book is Lisa’s style of writing. It’s open, honest and hilarious meaning that you are guaranteed a thoroughly enjoyable read and a good laugh! It’s a bit like spending time with your best friend, and as a result you end up with a book that you don’t want to put down!
I really enjoyed reading this and it’s a perfect festive read. Read it on a dark, damp day and get whisked away to Christmas in New York!
My rating: A fabulous four stars
I received an advance copy of this book from the published in return for an honest review as part of the blog tour for Mistletoe on 34th Street
