Publisher's Summary

The master of the holiday novel presents the moving story of two people who brave loneliness and loss to find love.

Dear Universe,

Is anyone out there?

Thinking no one is reading, a blogger who calls herself LBH writes about her most personal feelings, especially her overwhelming loneliness. She goes from day to day showing a brave face to the world while inside she longs to know how it would feel if one person cared about her.

Alex Bartlett cares. He's reading her posts in Daytona Beach, Florida. Nursing his own broken heart and trust issues, he finds himself falling for this sensitive, vulnerable woman whose feelings mirror his own. Following a trail of clues LBH has inadvertently revealed, he discovers that she lives in the small town of Midway, Utah. He makes his way there just after Thanksgiving, determined to find LBH. Maybe she's a Lisa, a Lori, or a Luanne. Instead he finds a woman named Aria, a waitress at the Mistletoe Diner, who encourages Alex in his search while serving his pie along with some much-needed sympathy and companionship.

Alex finally finds his LBH, a woman who is as beautiful and kind as he imagined she would be. How can he tell her that he knows her secret? What's holding him back? Could it be his feelings for Aria?

A warm Christmas story with great reflections!

I enjoyed this story, and the presentation of core emotions that all of us have experienced, so eloquently written in the characters' self-reflection and emotion of current conflicts.

Never Give Up on Love

Would you consider the audio edition of Mistletoe Secret to be better than the print version?

No, I am not a fan of the author's narration, so I would rather read the print edition, but while crafting, this is my favorite form of listening to a book.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

His voice just didn't seem to be the right fit in my opinion. Richard has a dragging voice at times and I felt that it distracted from the story. However, I loved the female narrator's portion of the book.

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

No, it did not make me laugh or cry.

real heart story

I just love how the author wrote this book with so much heart. It's not your typical romance fairytale. I enjoy taking away from each book a little bit of knowledge. With Richard Paul Evans, the books make me feel like I'm gaining so much wisdom from them! Thank you for your work!

A holiday treat

I hated to see this book end. Though somewhat predictable in some ways, in other ways the characters were fresh. Some good messages about forgiving and moving forward. I recommend this book.

A Hallmark Movie In Print

I listened to this book because it was in my Audible Library and I figured I see what it was. My wife described it as a Hallmark Movie. I can see that. It was a good story. Enough to keep me interested and it made me chuckle in spots.

The narrator was ok. I liked his delivery of the story. There were times when he did not annunciate clearly. Something I get on to my kids about. But this was not enough to distract from the story.

Even as a guy, I enjoyed that I had chosen to open this book.

Wonderful Christmas Story

I loved this book- not the same old romantic Christmas formula that I try to avoid. It was heartwarming without being sappy. The narration was excellent.
