amazon barnes & noble Goodreads
Bailey Sullivan can’t stand Christmas, even though her family’s business is a store specializing in the perfect holiday. But now her hometown’s chief supplier of rooftop Rudolphs and treetop angels is in danger of going under–and it’s up to Bailey to save the shop.

She has it all planned: She’ll arrive on December 1 and be gone by Christmas. Plus there’s always spiked eggnog to ease the pain. But “Humbug” Bailey’s not the only one home for the holidays. Finn Jacobson, legendary local bad boy turned Secret Service agent and Bailey’s long-lost high-school boyfriend, is once again the boy next door. Only this time he’s all grown up, and the sparks are flying faster and hotter than ever!

Bailey believes in true love about as much as she believes in Santa Claus. But as the holiday draws closer, she’s starting to think about one thing she’d like to find under the tree…

Hott Review:

Maybe I wanted to love it too much. I’ve really been looking forward to reading Must Love Mistletoe, it was to be my first Christie Ridgwaybook and I’ve heard such great things. But alas, it was not to be.

While I really like Ms. Ridgeway’s writing style the graphic nature of the characters’ intimate memerories before we’ve gotten to know them or developed a relationship with them was a huge turn off. I decided not to continue reading, because if it was that specific in the first chapters of the book I couldn’t imagine things would get less uncomfortable.

I know some of you love that stuff, so go for it! But for those of you who don’t, you may want to try another of Ms. Ridgeway’s books.
