#Review: The Mistletoe Inn by Richard Paul Evans #Christmas #romancenovels
At thirty-two Kimberly Rossi, a finance officer at a Lexus car dealership, has had her heart broken more times than she wants to remember. With two failed engagements, a divorce and again alone with no prospects, she hardly seems the type to dream of being a published romance author.
The theme of The Mistletoe Inn is that like literature, relationships must be lived with passion and vulnerability to succeed.
When I picked up this book I was sure it would be somewhat romantic in nature as that who the writer is. I also figured it to be placed at Christmas. All of this was true. It is also true that the book is essentially about romance writers who write romance books.
I enjoyed that Kimberly, the aspiring romance author,goes to a conference at the Mistletoe Inn which is described as a beautiful place but not much more. A mysterious man by the name of Zeke enters the conference and wins over Kimberly but her hesitations and constant crying made me cringe. Get a grip! It annoyed me such a whiny character could not see her own strengths.
Most of the book talked about the conference itself and took awhile to get to the romance side of the book, of which Kimberly nearly ruined due to trust issues. Ugh!
Overall, things turned out just right with a few interesting twist and turns. Little jokes the author writes to himself were also present too. It just took me awhile to get there as the book took awhile to develop.
I still give the book three stars as I did like it. I need to pick up some of the authors previous books to read.
