Review: Mine Under the Mistletoe by Kat Latham

Thanks to a transatlantic house swap, California girl Ashley Turner is finally going to fulfill her lifelong dream of a proper English Christmas. Her holiday plans did not include a sexy stranger climbing into her borrowed bed in the middle of the night. But in the light of day, Ashley can't help but wonder if Santa has delivered early...

Game designer Oliver Stansfeld can't wait to leave dreary London—and all its difficult holiday memories—for sunny San Diego. But a freak ice storm and a grounded plane have forced him back to his already-occupied flat. To make up for the mix-up, the least he can do is show his pretty houseguest where to get the perfect Christmas tree before he leaves.

The more time they spend together, the more their attraction grows, and soon Ashley is tempting Oliver to give in to the spirit of the season and snuggle up for the rest of the winter. As the ice melts and flights start taking off again, he must choose between giving in to the past or risking his heart on a chance at love.

This book is full of humor and heart and I loved every word of it!

What a beautifully crafted story that will wrench your heart as well as melt it! There’s humor, heartache and a sexy British man who tries to make you hot chocolate but ends up exploding it in the microwave, carries you when you sprain your ankle on ice after he falls on you and buys you a Christmas tree just because you’ve never had one before. Plus, he has an English accent! What a dreamboat!

I really loved the secondary characters and would love to see updates on them and on Ashley and Ollie’s future! I absolutely LOVED this book. It’s one of my favorite Christmas reads.

I highly recommend Mine Under the Mistletoe to anyone who’s a sucker for a Christmas story with a lot of love, laughter and a happily ever after!
