Count down to Christmas with mistletoe, mayhem, meddling friends, and mystery men …
There’s a saying about all work and no play – but there’s never a dull moment for Caroline working at Holly Walk Mall, especially at Christmas.
When she’s not dealing with orders from Ian, ‘the manager who can’t manage’ as her friend Rachel puts it, she’s overseeing the usual late-night shopping sessions, Santa’s grotto construction, and, most importantly, the sampling of many delicious festive treats at the Italian café her friends Nina and Marco own.
But when a new jewelry shop moves in and brings the ‘mysterious guy with the cute bottom’ to Holly Walk, Caro isn’t yet aware of just how much mayhem she’s in for in the countdown to Christmas.
With strategically placed mistletoe, revealing cowboy outfits, and even a bit of sleuthing, could this festive season turn out to be the liveliest yet for both Caro and her beloved Mall?

I will confess upfront that I have always loved every title of this author that I’ve read… and Mistletoe and Mayhem at the Little Shopping Mall continues that winning streak. Most of what you’ll want to know before picking up this Christmas Romance can be found in the cover description. What you won’t find there is the absolute joy and mystery that this story will create for you. Now, because there is a definite mystery involved I’m not going into any great details about the plot. But I can say that I had an absolute blast with Caro and her group of friends, fellow shop owners, and customers in this story.
So.

The characters are believable, the plot interesting, the secondary characters lively and charming, and that hopeful hint of a Christmas romance is always felt. I had a blast here, and this one will definitely go on my annual Christmas re-read list. If you love a romance that will give you laughter and shivers, or if figuring out a bit of a mystery is right up your alley, and if possibilities always fascinate you then pick up Caro’s adventure and have yourself a really good time.
