Eager for a home-style Christmas while she considers a career shift, Kristen Benz leaps on the temporary job at Mistletoe Chalet. Soon she’s wrapping presents, trimming the tree, and helping her new boss’s tween daughter plan a Christmas Eve vow renewal for her parents. The holiday is imbued with a magical glow—especially when Kristen’s high school sweetheart appears on the doorstep.
After years of medical school, Finn Garrett has promised his parents he’ll be home for the holidays. His detour to see his first love is supposed to provide closure, not rekindle their long-ago romance.
Can a matchmaking tween and the magic of Mistletoe Chalet spark the happily ever after that eluded them in the past?
Title: Wedding at Mistletoe Chalet
Author: Dani Collins
Genre: Contemporary Christmas Romance
Published: November 8, 2018
Publisher: Tule Publishing
My Rating: 4.5 stars
Sometimes we make the wrong decisions for what seems like the right reason, at the time. Once Kristen and Finn were students, young, in love, with a bright future ahead of them. Then Finn made a choice for them both – one that he felt was necessary but left so many regrets and feelings still alive for them both. Now, years later, Finn is months away from completing his career choice, Kristen is working at the Mistletoe Chalet temporarily over the Christmas break while she makes some career decisions of her own… and their worlds are about to cross once again. Maybe with a better outcome this time around.
Wedding at Mistletoe Chalet is packed full of Christmas magic, intriguing DIY projects, mouthwatering cookies, a lot of secondary characters and a matchmaking tween who not only wants to pull of the surprise of a life time for her parents but maybe get Finn and Kristen back where they belong, together. There is a lot going on in this story, yet at the heart of it are two people who never really let go of the love they once had and now get the chance to see if it really is the forever kind of love they both are believing in. I enjoyed everything about this story, from the merrily decorated chalet, to the snowed in atmosphere, to one adorable tween with a plan, to Kristen and Finn discovering that love can work if you give it a chance. If you’re in the mood for a very good Christmas Romance then this is one I’d happily recommend.
