Overview

A full-length contemporary romance for readers who enjoy Barbara Freethy, Susan Mallery, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and Nora Roberts.

Bailey Sullivan can't stand Christmas, even though her family's business is a store specializing in the perfect holiday. But now her hometown's chief supplier of rooftop Rudolphs and treetop angels is in danger of going under--and it's up to Bailey to save the shop.

She has it all planned: She'll arrive on December 1 and be gone by Christmas. Plus there's always spiked eggnog to ease the pain. But "Humbug" Bailey's not the only one home for the holidays. Finn Jacobson, legendary local bad boy turned Secret Service agent and Bailey's long-lost high-school boyfriend, is once again the boy next door. Only this time he's all grown up, and the sparks are flying faster and hotter than ever!

Bailey believes in true love about as much as she believes in Santa Claus. But as the holiday draws closer, she's starting to think about one thing she'd like to find under the tree...

    A Very Enjoyable Christmas Read by Christie Ridgway

    A sweet, fun read for Christmas. It is not a short story as the price suggests. Can't wait to read the New Year's follow up.

    Bailey returns home to run the family Christmas themed store for the month of December. Her stepfather has moved out, and her mother is not coping well. Bailey hates Christmas and the store where she spent her childhood. First love Finn is next door caring for his sick grandmother. He was the bad boy who love the sweet and shiny girl next door every summer and Christmas.

    If you love reformed bad boys and happy endings, you'll enjoy this sweet tale.

    cute holiday story

    I enjoyed this story, Finn was a sexy leading man though I think the author could have gone more in depth on his background. I can't say I loved the leading lady, found her character a bit annoying, but the story as a whole is worth the buy. Will check out this author's other books. There's also a secondary story about the main character's parents that's a little superfluous, could have done without it and been a better book with more interactions and background on the main characters.

    Good things do come in small packages.

    For so short a book, it was great. How the author packed so much information, drama, fun and action into so few pages is a mystery. I can't wait to get into some of her full length books!

    Great Read!

    I loved this book. It was funny and charming. Made me remember that the real meaning of Christmas is about Family, Love, and Forgiveness.

    Good book

    I enjoyed this book. It was an easy read. I was a little uncomfortable reading on plane and kept making sure person next to me was not reading too as the sexual encounters are pretty descriptive. Now am reading the New Years book.

    Must love Mistletoe a must read

    Christmas is my favorite holiday, Christie Ridgway made me wish I was there in the Perfect Christmas shop. Bailey came home to take care of the family business. She was hoping to be in and out in 25 days. Little did she know she would run into Finn her first love. I loved the real life problems and feelings. I will definitely be recommending this book I loved it Kimberley

    For your information: This is not a fluffy holiday story. This

    For your information: This is not a fluffy holiday story. This is the fourth time I’ve read Must Love Mistletoe by Christie Ridgway and it still slays me. Finn and Bailey have a tough road ahead of them – with different reasons – with their paths intertwining at many points.

    I love Bailey’s character, as she grows, especially when she gets sentimental about something that is happening during this Christmas season. See, she is anti-holiday because of things that have happened in her past but this season events are sneaking into her heart. One of those “reasons” is Finn.

    Finn not only has his past with Bailey to deal with (or GND for Girl Next Door as we are told by Finn) but horrific events in his not so distant past. Wow. Christie really makes you feel for him as he so rightly deserves.

    I’m a little slow in posting this review however since I reread this book all the time, I thought it was about time to post a review. I recommend this book if you are looking for a great read that has holiday magic.

    more from this reviewer

    I have always loved reading any book set at Christmas time! This

    I have always loved reading any book set at Christmas time! This book was a perfect read for me! I loved the sense of community. The family loyalty that when someone in the family needs help they receive it from the ones they love! Renewed friendships of long ago! Who says you can’t go home again? The story of Finn and Bailey brought tears to my eyes at times, made me laugh out loud and kept me reading until 3 AM! And yes there were some very hot love scenes in this book as well. I also loved the added story line of Bailey’s Mom Tracy and her husband Dan. Their story added layers to this book that made it more complex, but brought understanding of the way things happened for Bailey and Finn.  If you love a Christmas story, a bad boy and the girl next door I think you will also love this book!

    Everything seemed so real, very heartfelt, loved it! What I lov

    Everything seemed so real, very heartfelt, loved it! What I love about this story, and it is common in her other books as well, is how the romance happens over a period of time, not the fast lustful and fall in love forever after a weekend thing. Reading about their childhood, how they grew together, how they loved, and experienced so many firsts was very sweet and endearing. You saw how the girl and boy, with their innocence and dreams, turned into the woman and man they are in the present time. The family issues both have are very real and make the book memorable. This is my favorite book of hers so far out of the few I've read.
