Publisher's Summary

The second holiday love story in New York Times best-selling author Richard Paul Evans' Mistletoe Collection.

At 32, Kimberly Rossetti, a finance officer at a Lexus car dealership, has had her heart broken more times than she wants to remember. With two failed engagements and a divorce, and again alone with no prospects, she hardly seems the type to dream of being a published romance author. Dreading another holiday alone, she signs up for The Mistletoe Retreat, a nine-day writing retreat in Savannah, Georgia. Deep inside Kimberly knows she's at a junction in her life, and it's time to either fulfill her dream or let it go. The other reason she decides to attend the conference is because famed romance writer H. T. Cowell, once the best-selling romance writer in America and the author whose books instilled in her the desire to be a writer, will be speaking in public for the first time in more than a decade.

In one of her breakout sessions, Kimberly meets another aspiring writer and one of the few men at the conference, Zeke - an intelligent man with a wry wit who seems as interested in Kimberly as he is in the retreat. As Kimberly begins to open up to him about her stories and dreams, she inadvertently reveals her own troubled past. As Zeke helps her to discover why her books fail to live up to their potential, she begins to wonder if he's really talking more about her life than her literature. But as she grows closer to him, she realizes that Zeke has his own darkness, a past he's unwilling to talk about.

The theme of The Mistletoe Inn is that like literature, relationships must be lived with passion and vulnerability to succeed.

Mistletoe Inn

Way too predictable, sappy and unbelievable. The narrator has been good with other characters but this felt like a miss cast.

LOVED THIS STORY!

If you could sum up The Mistletoe Inn in three words, what would they be?

The Mistletoe in was charming, fun to read and relate-able. I wished I was there in those moments.

What other book might you compare The Mistletoe Inn to and why?

It had the enchanting feel of a Debbie Maccomber Christmas book and the Mistletoe Promise is a good one to read as well! :)

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

The narrator was great.

Any additional comments?

Just love, loved, LOVED it! :)

If you are a writer...READ this!

I loved the meta story, loved how Richard portrays the real world of writing and loved his ability, as always, to tell a tale. I found myself less "wanting" of the happy ending. Maybe because I have finally found my own.

Marginal Story

Frankly I expected something more profound and entertaining from this author. If you have a tendency to be star-struck and hope to be a famous author someday, you might find this entertaining, but I became bored with the lengthy details of a writers' conference. The meat of the story was good. The performance even better.
