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.

    love to read and love audio books!Favorite authors: Marcia Willett,Nevil Shute,Mary Stewart,and Jacqueline Winspear. I could go on and on but wont bore you! I belong to a book group and we often" Listen" to the books we have selected for the month while using a paper copy for the discussion notes. It really enhances the quality of the story.

    "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! :)

    "awesome!"

    For me, the book started out slow. Half way through the writers conference I found myself thinking..."I thought this was a holiday romance?" Just about the time I was going to move on to somethibg else to listen to, the story came alive. I'm so very glad I stuck with it! It tuned out to be one of my favorite Richard Paul Evans books!!

    "Eh. Not as good as the first one."

    I wasn't as impressed with this one. Very predictable. Too much talking about how to be a writer - lost interest. Appeared it was just a story about the author's uneventful trip to a book conference. Will press forward with the next book. Hoping it's more like Mistletoe Promise.
