Mistletoe and love are synonymous when it comes to the Holidays. This standalone story is a classic example of how love and an open heart go hand in hand.
Dan is a divorce lawyer and a Grinch, at least when it comes to Christmas. He avoids and despises everything about the Holiday. However, he often does charity projects and is signed up for one at the local children’s hospital. Much to his dismay and his friend Geoff’s chagrin they are signed up to build a Christmas set. He considers ducking out of the project until he meets the girl (or so he thinks) in charge of the project.
Anna may be small in stature but she knows what she wants and how to get it done. She has been in charge of the hospital Christmas for the past couple of years now. She gets the Kappa girls to help her out and they lovingly call her Sarge. Anna has a past secret of her own, one that you get a glimpse of when she tries to explain away her knowledge of the friendly hospital staff.
Jeanette has her readers begging for more information on this unlikely duo. I caught myself wondering why two consenting adults would impose unrealistic guidelines about enjoying relationships and the holidays. They both find a way to make peace with their past and learn to live life to the fullest with each other. This was a great Holiday read and as always I love the style that Jeanette brings to romance novels that always keep you beseeching for more.

No Mistletoe Required
No Mistletoe Required is a sweet Christmas novella about two people who need to “step outside of themselves” and really and truly enjoy life and all it has to offer. I can’t imagine what Dan and Anna have actually had to endure during the course of their lives. I love Christmas and I can’t say that I wouldn’t be like Dan if I lost my entire family on Christmas Day. The same can be said for Anna, I would feel bad about meeting someone and then dragging them into my medical scares.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I love this quote from the book, referring to Christmas, “It’s just one of those times of the year where anything seems possible.” Even though this is a short book, it skips in time a little, I found that the story could actually be true for some people. I loved that a little pixie like Anna could get Dan the Grinch to actually remember his parents and what Christmas actually use to mean to his family. I also loved the way Anna’s brother was able to make her realize that she was pushing guys away for her own self-preservation.
No Mistletoe Required is a good Christmas romance to curl up on your couch with for a day.
