Kissing Under the Mistletoe: A Sullivan Christmas | [Bella Andre]

Kissing Under the Mistletoe: A Sullivan Christmas

For Mary Sullivan Christmas is, and always has been, about family. And this year is no different. As she awaits the arrival of her eight children and their partners at the cottage in Lake Tahoe, she hangs the ornaments that they made for her over the years. Each decoration brings with it a tide of memories, all of which she holds dear to her heart. But when she comes across the oldest ornament, the one her beloved husband, Jack, gave her on their very first Christmas together, Mary is immediately swept back.

    First Thought when Finished: Kissing Under the Mistletoe is exactly the kind of Christmas read I love: sweet, moving, and in this case history of a character (Mary) that I love and adore!

    Story Thoughts: Kissing Under the Mistletoe was a bittersweet read that had me crying both at the beginning and the end. Fans of The Sullivans series already know what is happening in the present day but it was wonderful to get Mary and Jack's love story. In fact, I have to say it is my 2nd favorite in the series. Perhaps it was knowing what their love created already but their instant connection worked for me (that is rare). Their whirlwind romance swept me off me feet and made me swoon. This is a fantastic Christmas read and I would highly recommend it to all fans of The Sullivan series.

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated by Eva Kaminsky /Length 7 hrs and 55 mins


    Eva does a great job with The Sullivan series. She has the right emotion for these really deep and moving contemporary romances. I love the extra "emotion" she adds during the "falling in love" time. She also has great timing for the humorous parts.

    Final Thoughts: I recommend Kissing Under the Mistletoe to anyone who has read even just one book in The Sullivan series. Mary's story is to good to pass by.

    "Words can't describe...."

    I have LOVED every book in this series ad listened to them all twice. This book is at the top of the list for sure. The story of Jack and Mary was so incredibly sweet and romantic. To see the beginning of the Sullivan family was wonderful. It just tied in all of the kids stories so wonderfully. Can't say enough how great this book is!

    "Best Sullivan Book"
    Where does Kissing Under the Mistletoe: A Sullivan Christmas rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my absolute favorite book of all the series, because it was the first book that really developed the characters. This should have been the 1st book in the series.

    "I love this story!!"
    Would you listen to Kissing Under the Mistletoe: A Sullivan Christmas again? Why?

    Yes. Love the romantic between Jack & Mary


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack - he's everyone women's fantasy as a man.


    What does Eva Kaminsky bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    We need to change the narrator, Eva is okay, but it should have been a different person for Jack & Mary.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Sullivans

    "A touching holiday read"
    Would you listen to Kissing Under the Mistletoe: A Sullivan Christmas again? Why?

    Yes, it was a touching romance and perfect for the holiday season


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Mary. She is such a strong character who loves her family. It is easy to see where her children get their sense of drive and strong ethics.


    Have you listened to any of Eva Kaminsky’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time listening to Eva, and I found her to be warm as she used the right tones to set the tale.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, shed a few tears and swooned over Jack


    Any additional comments?

    Having previously read the novel, it was delighted to experience it on audio
