Mistletoe and Mr Right - Sarah Morgenthaler | Spoiler Free Book Review

 - This post contains a Netgalley arc - 

Yes, I know it's August but I already have Christmas on the brain so here we are! If you know me at all, you'll know how much I love Christmas so when the Christmas arcs started popping up on Netgalley, I couldn't resist and I was so excited to get a copy of this one! Mistletoe and Mr Right - Sarah Morgenthaler | Spoiler Free Book Review


"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 tranquillizes 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."

My Review

I love books set in Alaska so if you're like me, you will want to read this one! I had previously read The Tourist Attraction which is the first book set in the Moose Springs world and I really liked it. You don't need to read that one to read this one as they are companion books but I would personally recommend it because those characters are involved in this book and you get to read about some cute moments involving them. You also get to know Lana a lot in that book as she is the main characters best friend in The Tourist Attraction. 

I liked Lana so much more in this book and you really get to understand her and why she is so passionate about the town even though almost everyone is against her and the changes she wants to make. You also get to see how Lana is who she is from glimpses of her family (who all suck). You can instantly tell how her and Rick like each other from the first few chapters and it's a really realistic representation of a relationship which I loved. Rick is so adorable and says some of the cutest things to Lana. 

This book has some unexpected plot elements to it and I always like these even if I didn't necessarily need them because it makes it much less predictable. There are also some hilarious moments involving animals and a scene involving some egg nog and a tranq gun that had me laughing out loud. I felt like there is quite a lot left unresolved in this book which I hope is covered in the next book! I can't wait for the next instalment. 

Mistletoe and Mr Right will be released on the 6th of October 2020. You can preorder your copy - HERE.
