Review of The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

If she has her way . . .

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her . . .

He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.

Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him . . .

Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice . . .

Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish—and let the mistletoe do its work 

Rating: 4.5* 

I can get a little Bah Humbug with anything Christmas related before December but this eased me into the festival time of year.  This was a beautifully packaged Christmas read.  It always amazes me how much more special romance seems at Christmas.  When it comes down to it I'm a complete sucker for Christmas romance.

Willa's big heart and kind nature lends itself to Christmas and demonstrating the true meaning of the season with her actions and her way with animals and humans alike.  Keane is not who she would choose after being let down by him in the past.  But they are equally closed off from the idea of anything romantic between them.  It is a cat, Petunia, and her antics that actually bring them closer together and the possibility of a future together.

This was a feel good read that really captured the spirit of season perfectly.  It was a warm and fuzzy read that will definitely warm your heart on a cold winter's day.
