"At thirty-two Kimberly Rossetti, a finance officer at a Lexus car dealership, has had her heart broken more times than she wants to remember. With two failed engagements, a divorce and again alone with no prospects, she hardly seems the type to dream of being a published romance author. Dreading another holiday alone, she signs up for The Mistletoe Retreat, a nine-day writing retreat in Savannah, Georgia. Deep inside Kimberly knows she's at a junction in her life and it's time to either fulfill her dream or let it go. The other reason she decides to attend the conference is because famed romance writer, H.T. Cowell, once the best-selling romance writer in America, and the author whose books instilled in her the desire to be a writer, will be speaking in public for the first time in more than a decade. In one of her breakout sessions Kimberly meets another aspiring writer, and one of the few men at the conference, Zeke, an intelligent man with a wry wit who seems as interested in Kimberly as he is in the retreat. As Kimberly begins to open up to him about her stories and dreams, she inadvertently reveals her own troubled past. As Zeke helps her to discover why her books fail to live up to their potential she begins to wonder if he's really talking more about her life than her literature. But as she grows closer to him, she realizes that Zeke has his own darkness, a past he's unwilling to talk about. The theme of The Mistletoe Inn is that like literature, relationships must be lived with passion and vulnerability to succeed."--

After reading Mistletoe Promise I wasn't sure what to expect from this novel. While a good love story, Mistletoe Promise tackled some serious issues. Mistletoe Inn, however, was a gentler read. While there were serious issues tackled (Kim's father is diagnosed with colon cancer and her mother committed suicide when she was a child), this novel was more hopeful. This novel does tackle of the issues of depression, suicide, illness, and loss. Both the main characters have been scarred by their pasts, but ultimately hope infuses this novel. There is the romance and I loved the setting of a romance conference in Vermont. This was a lighter read than the first book, but definitely more of what I was looking for in a Christmas novel. It has its serious moments, but it also has romance and hope as well.

A pleasant Christmas read. Although I did figure out early on what was going on it still was interesting and a feel good story to give hope to anyone feeling bad about their life and how things were turning out. What a delight if everyone found a Zeke in their life.

All right, I'll admit it: I'm a sucker for Richard Paul Evans' books! Easy to read, enjoyable and engaging.

Another quick, light-hearted holiday book from RPE. Not quite as good as last year's Mistletoe Promise, but still enjoyable. Sometimes you just need a feel-good story to cleanse the reading palate in between the books with more dark and serious subject matter.

Trauma has a way of indelibly linking the incidentals to the profound.

There's no point in switching course after you've hit the iceberg.
