Mistletoe Secret Book Review

I put this book on reserve and it took forever to come in but when it did, it came at the same time as lots of other reserve books.  I know that I should pay attention and put them on hold when I get close to the top but I swear it goes so quickly that I miss it.  I was reading another book before The Mistletoe Secret: A Novel (The Mistletoe Collection) by Richard Paul Evans and then it was due back to the library with no renewals allowed because there were other holds so I had one day to read it!!  It was a really good day!!

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, 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?

I hope that you check out this book because it was the perfect mix of the holiday spirit with wonderful small town charm.  Alex Bartlett read a blog and went all the way to the small town that he figured out that she lived so that he could try to find LBH, the mystery blogger.  It was one of those ones that you wanted to scream at the book to get Alex to listen to not mess up.  It was a heartwarming story and I was riveted (which was of course wonderful because I had so little time to read the book before the library due date).  I have read other books by this author and was super excited to find out that there might be another book that I missed!!  I can't wait to put Mistletoe Promise on my list to read soon!!!  I hope that you enjoy this as much as I did.
