Thank you so much to Sourcebooks Casablanca for fulfilling my wish on Netgalley to read Mistletoe and Mr. Right! I read book one in the Moose Springs, Alaska books (the Tourist Attraction) near the beginning of pandemic and it was super cute, and Mistletoe and Mr. Right definitely lived up to the precedent set by that one!
Mistletoe and Mr. Right 5/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads: 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.
I love Lana. I love her so much. She’s such a boss and she really knows what she’s doing with work and stuff, but in terms of the whole never feeling like she belongs and always trying so hard to fit in and be a part of the community she really wants to be a part of- oof I felt that so much. Man, it’s always so nice to have easy to relate to, easy to understand main characters! I loved Lana and Rick! And having Diego make cameos was also great. And I loved seeing Graham and Zoey again- and the Killians! And Ash and Easton! I’m really growing to love all of the characters and the town of Moose Springs so much! The story in this one wasn’t quite as strong as the story in the Tourist Attraction was, but I think the characters were able to make up for that because I liked Lana and Rick a lot. I’m really excited to see where Sarah Morganthaler takes things in book three (which, based on the description is going to be about Easton, so I’m extra excited about that)! Mistletoe and Mr.Right came out yesterday, October 6th, so definitely go check it out for a quick, fun, feel good romance read!
