I’d like to thank NetGalley and Bloomsbury Spark for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review. I was happy to read this just in time for the Holidays!

Genre: New Adult // Holiday Romance
Mistletoe and Mr. Right is a short novella about Jessica MacFarlane who takes the initiative and surprises her boyfriend in Ireland for Christmas. What starts out as a way to see if her and Brennan are meant to be, turns into Jessica figuring out that the best laid plans don’t always work out the way we think they will. Enter Grady, the handsome worker at Brennan’s family B&B, will he derail Jessica’s plans?
(Disclaimer: This would have been more stars if it was longer and a little more fleshed out. I know the point is that it’s a short story but I loved it and I want more!)
Reading descriptions of Ireland makes me want to go back overseas. I loved reading about County Clare! The descriptions of the characters were fantastic and really make me want my own hot Irish boyfriend (actually, I’d prefer Scottish but I digress).
If you’re looking for a cute romance to warm your heart for the Holiday season, this is it! While I would have loved for it to be longer, it just long enough to get me invested in the characters. Jessica’s character is witty and completely filled out but I would love to know more about her! Her thoughts are relatable and the whole novella is just plain fun!
I would love a sequel to this in full novel form… maybe about Jessica’s internship in Greece?
So grab some hot chocolate, a warm blanket, and a sit by the window. Hopefully snow is falling to set the mood, and dig into this adorable novella about a 20something finding love in Ireland.
