Mistletoe & Mr. Right by Sarah Morgenthaler Review


Mistletoe & Mr. Right | Sarah Morgenthaler | Sourcebooks Casablanca | Pub: 10/6/20

“Well, what grand gesture could Rick possibly make? Here, surrounded by them? We all feel like we aren’t enough.”

Did I read this book in 2 days? Yes. So that very clearly means I enjoyed it. What I didn’t expect was to like it more than The Tourist Attraction.

Lana works for her family’s company; she is rich and gorgeous and according to family and friends, way out of Rick’s league. Rick is the owner of the pool hall in Moose Springs. He is behind on rent, barely making ends meet, taking care of his nephew and did I mention that Lana is his business’ ‘landlord’? Does the entire town hate her besides her handful of friends? Yes. Does anything mentioned stop the two from having a little Christmas fling?

I think I enjoyed this book more because we got a more in-depth view of Rick’s and Lana’s pasts. So, we see why each side is so hesitant for this fling to be a thing. This book also occurs around Christmas time, so we get to see the more dangerous side of being in Alaska: bad snow and ice, danger on lakes and dangerous moose. There is also some drama back in Lana’s hometown that honestly made me cry.

It was refreshing to see badass businesswoman Lana’s walls cracking a little bit. The strong can only be strong for so long before they break and the issues in this book really pushed Lana to some limits.

But of course, my absolute favorite part was Jake, the blind puppy dog. He was just as important this time around. Jake is also featured on all 3 book covers. It brings my heart so much joy.

I preordered book 3, Enjoy the View (release date 1/19/21) and I am really too impatient because I want it NOW.

If you read these, I hope you fall in love with Moose Springs as much as I did. I really really enjoyed them both so far and I just never want the adventures in Moose Springs to end.

Synopsis (Credit: Goodreads)

How the moose (almost) stole Christmas.

Lana Montgomery is everything the quirky small town of Moose Springs, Alaska can't stand: a rich socialite with dreams of changing things for the better. But Lana's determined to prove that she belongs...even if it means trading her stilettos for snow boots and tracking one of the town's hairiest Christmas mysteries: the Santa Moose, an antlered Grinch hell-bent on destroying every bit of holiday cheer (and tinsel) it can sink its teeth into.

And really...how hard could it be?

The last few years have been tough on Rick Harding, and it's not getting any easier now that his dream girl's back in town. When Lana accidentally tranquilizes him instead of the Santa Moose, it's clear she needs help, fast...and this could be his chance to finally catch her eye. It's an all-out Christmas war, but if they can nab that darn moose before it destroys the town, Rick and Lana might finally find a place where they both belong...together.
