Cover Description:

Caught in a Christmas nightmare, Gillian needs to keep her distance from her ex, but with mistletoe everywhere and feelings resurfacing, she’s not sure she can resist just one more kiss…

Gillian Potter is having the biggest night of her life. A giant fundraiser, a beautifully decorated Christmas scene, an original madrigal, and her job is on the line. When she needs a caterer at the last minute, her secretary books the only person they can find on short notice. Unfortunately, that person is Gillian’s ex: Mason Herrick. Hurt as she is by the way he ended things, she wants to hate him and tries to stay away…

Mason Herrick took too many years to grow up and the perfect girl got away. Returned to Madison Falls, a new man and a business owner, Mason is determined to make good and to someday show Gillian Potter that he can be different. When her job and her future depend on Mason, he’s not sure if he’s become a good enough man to save her. Or to deserve her.

Read on for my thoughts on Montana Mistletoe.  No true spoilers, promise.

Montana Mistletoe is a quick, sweet Christmas themed story.  Told completely in the few hours leading up to and through a Christmas musical we will see frustration, anger, misunderstandings and at times complete chaos.

Everything that could go wrong at Gilliam’s musical presentation is going wrong.  Between the awful decorations, the craziness of opening night, facing her former love is the last thing she expected to be dealing with tonight.  But there he is, in the flesh.  Mason, the man she trusted with her heart – the man who walked away, crushing the love she had into tiny pieces.  She couldn’t deal with this, but she had no choice.

Through the craziness and chaos of this opening night, memories assault Mason and Gillian.  By the time the night is over their past will be resolved – but will the Christmas pagent be the success that she needs it to be in order to save her job.

I enjoyed this novel.  It was short, sweet and fun.  I wish there had been some background on Mason and Gillian earlier on in the story, it would have made the difference for me in understanding the anger that Gillian had towards Mason.  An opinion only, the story was not mine to tell.  Overall, it was an enjoyable story.

*Any review is just one person’s opinion. You might feel the same or totally different. The only way to know for certain is for you to read it. This was my opinion of this particular book.*

Montana Mistletoe is available for the Kindle
