Christmas has arrived at Hope Island, promising snowflakes, surprises and plenty of seasonal joy. So snuggle up and fall in love at Mistletoe Cove…
Growing up on Hope Island, Eden Lancaster always believed that if you wished hard enough for something, dreams really could come true. But Eden’s greatest wish is also her biggest secret: she has been completely in love with her childhood friend, the charming and attractive Dougie Harrison, for as long as she can remember. And he has no idea.
When Dougie leaves his successful life in New York to return home to Hope Island for good, Eden can’t escape her feelings. Her heart is full of hope that her romantic dreams are finally, at long last, going to come true…
This Christmas could change everything. But can a lifelong friendship really turn into the perfect romance? And will Eden get the happily ever after she’s always wished for?
Christmas at Mistletoe Cove is like a warm hug on a cold winter’s day. The perfect treat this Christmas for fans of Debbie Johnson, Cathy Bramley and Miranda Dickinson.

And with the night’s drawing in Christmas at Mistletoe Cove is the perfect book to read with a glass of mulled wine and a roaring fire. And trust me when I say that you will be Hooked from page one and will be unable to stop reading!
I loved the fairy tale elements of the book with the wishing well. Whether you choose to believe or not this adds a lovely bit of magical sparkle to the story. And it provides for some of the most important points in the book. And creates a bit of tension…
Dougie is the perfect book boyfriend as he tried to tick everything off Eden’s romantic wish-list. But Eden seems resistant to his charms and Dougie must pull out all the stops to prove his love for her. He even manages to get a unicorn. I told you magic was involved.
Christmas at Mistletoe Cove is filled with old-fashioned wooing, Christmas cheer and more than a few hot scenes. This is a book filled with a great friendship, witty moments and good feelings. This is one book that was hard to put down and it made me more excited for Christmas than ever before.
I also loved that we got to see how the others were doing. Rome and Freya planning for a baby, and Issac and Bella have wedding drama. In a way I wish that we could visit Hope Island again and again.
Christmas at Mistletoe Cove is a magical and sweet romance that will a smile on your face and hope in your heart. It is a satisfying and endearing read, and one that I will be able to read over and over again. Bring on the next book!
