It’s December 21st, 1981 in New York City, and the holidays are approaching fast. But up-and-coming book editor Julia Nash isn’t too busy to notice that her boyfriend has only put one small gift under the tree. At least, Jack has an excuse: as the lead guitarist of a famous British rock band, he is deep into rehearsals for their upcoming tour. But Julia was hoping for something a little more meaningful than the pair of mittens she can’t resist taking a peek at.
Julia tries to ignore her friends egging her on about what Jack might have planned. But even with the distractions of a demanding boss, a steamy snowball fight, a baking flop involving rum balls, and a blizzard that shuts down the entire city, the question still torments her: Is a pair of gloves—the kind of thing you’d give to a friend—the only gift Jack is giving her? And if so, what does that say about their relationship?
Brimming with laughter and an enticing dash of romantic spice, with vivid characters that reviewers have called “engaging” and “irresistible”, Dancing with Mistletoe puts you in the mood to kiss someone you love under a sprig of green.
I went into this not knowing that it was in a series of sorts. However, I thought it read well as a standalone. This is the story of Julia who fell in love with a famous musician Jack and her life as it has turned upside down but for the good. We have these thoughts of famous musicians who are reckless and cheaters, but I loved how Jack is the exception to the rule. This is a true love story of a girl who simply fell in love with someone who truly loves her back. I also loved that it was set in the 80’s plus I love the other characters in the book. Although this is a series I didn’t feel like I was missing anything but I do want to go back and read the series.
