Publisher's Summary

An uplifting, beautiful story about never letting go of your dreams, the special magic of a family Christmas...and the rush of falling in love under the mistletoe.

Single mother Abbey Fuller loves her family more than anything and doesn't regret for a moment having had to put her dreams of being an interior designer on hold. But with her son, Max, growing up, when a friend recommends her for a small design job, she jumps at the chance. How hard can it be?

Nick Sinclair needs his house decorated in time for his family's festive visit - and money is no object. What he doesn't need is to be distracted from his multimillion-dollar business - even if it is Christmas.

When Abbey pulls up to the huge Sinclair mansion, she has a feeling she might be out of her depth. And when she meets the gorgeous, brooding Nicholas Sinclair, she knows that she's in real trouble....

With the snow falling all around, can Abbey take the chance to make her dreams of being a designer come true? And can she help Nick to finally enjoy the magic of Christmas?

    "A fun feel good story"
    Would you listen to Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses again? Why?

    No. It was a fun read, but too predictable to read it again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The grandmother


    What aspect of Katherine Fenton’s performance might you have changed?

    She read the story very slow and I didn't really enjoy how she tried to characterise characters with her voice.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Simply feel good and easy to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think I would listen to another book by Katherine Fenton's.

    "Predicable but an easy listening Christmas read."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Only when you have the time to waste. It was an easy listening Christmas story but incredibly predicable from the start.


    If you’ve listened to books by Jenny Hale before, how does this one compare?

    No this is the first.


    What didn’t you like about Katherine Fenton’s performance?

    I found her narration nauseating and I'm surprised I finished the book. Sickly sweet and without real ability to define accents. Therefore everyone sounded the same other than a slightly higher or lower pitched voice!


    Did Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses inspire you to do anything?

    Determination to finish the book and not press 'mark as finished' before the end!


    Any additional comments?

    Tried to be fair with the scoring as it was a predicable feel good story for Christmas but unless you have time to waste and a great deal of patience to put up with the narration - don't bother.

    "Feel good Christmas tale"

    A lovely (predictable) feel good Christmas tale that has been beautifully narrated. If you are expecting a twist and turn in the tale then this won't be the book for you. I think the narration added to the overall quality of the story. It's a story that could be shared with all the family.

    "Enjoyed the other Jenny Hale Christmas novel more"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The characters didn't feel believable to me.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jenny Hale again?

    Yes, as the other book was better.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This narrator was not a match for the character. Her tone did not seem to match the dialogue given to the character. A Xe Sands type voice would have been better for this novel.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Some renovation/small business mention struggle, but not enough. The premise was interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    This book should have been right up my alley for Christmas reading, and I was surprised how much it didn't work for me. I do think the narration was a big part of this.

    Story
    "aloof handsome millionaire intrigued by simpleton woman ridden with welfare mentality"

    "Feel good romance!?!" I kept yelling at my car speakers REALLY BROAD, you told him you didn't know how to eat pasta!?!?! Ohh rich handsome loner millionaire YOU FIND HER LACK OF DINNER TABLE ETIQUETTE CHARMING?

    Nope. Can't deal. ✋🏼I tried for 2 days I really did. It was supposed to be a short mushy book club read but ... the over the top welfare mentality was a turn off.

    Her questioning his car collection for instance reminded me of note someone shared recently on social media that said:

    ''A guy looked at the Corvette the other day and said I wonder how many people could have been fed for the cost of that car. I replied I am not sure, it fed a lot of families in Kentucky who built it, it fed the people who make the tires, it fed the people who made the components, it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires, it fed people who make the trucks that haul the copper ore. That's the difference between capitalism and welfare mentality. When you buy something,you put money in people's pockets and give them dignity for their skills''

    Anyway, if all that gives you butterflies and charmed vibes, I recommend listening to the performer at 1.25.

    Story
    "Lacking in "sparkle""

    I wanted to enjoy this book, I really did. The premise sounded delightful, but the book just did not pull me in and capture me. The dialogue lacked the sparkle and wit that I so much enjoy in a good novel and the characters did not flesh out to become real people. After making myself stay with it for a while hoping that the story would pick up I finally just gave up and returned the book. Narrator average.
