From the master of the Christmas novel, The Mistletoe Secret is a moving holiday story about two people who brave loneliness and loss to find love.
Twenty-nine-year-old Kelly Arrington is at a low point in life. Briefly married, her husband abandoned her before the birth of their stillborn child. Lonely and in mourning, she copes by starting an anonymous blog, The Mistletoe Letters, named for her home on Mistletoe Road.
“Is anyone out there?”
She signs each of her deeply personal posts LBH, which only she knows stands not for her initials, but for “Last Breaking Heart.”
New York writer Tyler Richards is reading her posts. Nursing his own broken heart and trust issues, he finds himself falling for this anonymous blogger. Following a trail of clues LBH has inadvertently revealed, he tracks her down to the small town of Tribe, Alabama. He makes his way there, and begins the search for a Lisa, Lori, maybe a Luanne. Instead, he finds a woman named Kelly to help him track down the mysterious
Mistletoe Secret was another Richard Paul Evans book that did not disappoint. The story is all about a heartbroken man who travels across the country to find a blogger who he fell in love with. The only problem is that he does not know her name. It is a heart wrenching tale of loneliness and how to understand all the ways to be lonely. Throughout the whole story I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see how he was going to find the blogger while falling in love with another girl. I laughed, cried, and got really mad at the main character a couple of times. I love stories that envelope you into them. I felt like there was plenty of character development and the history of the characters were so fascinating. I felt like there were many plot twists that kept me guessing how things were going to end. I fell in love with all the characters and the town they were in. The town the story was based in felt so magical to me; it is a perfect Christmas town. Richard Paul Evans has a way with words that draws you into his works. No one writes Christmas story like him. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a heartwarming Christmas story and romance. I am so excited to read the next one in the series and anything else Richard Paul Evans writes.
