Book Review: Love in Mistletoe Springs
|5 stars, 1 review|
Kimberly Rose Johnsonabout this anthology: This book contains five novellas that center around the lives of the volunteers in Mistletoe Springs, WA trying to save the animal shelter that lost its main source of funding. Each story is a sweet romance. My contribution to the set in "Brewed With Love."
Here is a short teaser. When Amber Cook meets firefighter Bryan Grant, can she overcome her deep seated fear of fire and discover true love?
This is my first anthology and it's unique because all the stories take place at the same time. The story opens with a prologue then each of the stories picks up after the prologue. The epilogue wraps all the stories up.
It was interesting working with four other authors to make sure our stories jived. For example we had a weather chart, so all our stories matched. One of the writers created a map of the town, which was VERY helpful.
I've never written a story this length before and figured it would be easy. However, I discovered it wasn't easy at all to write shorter than I'm accustomed to. That being said, I love "Brewed with Love," my contribution to the Love in Mistletoe Springs anthology.

a review by Lee CarverA novella collection of four stories by four excellent inspirational authors, "Love in Mistletoe Springs" is centered on a fictional small town in Washington state. The animal rescue shelter has lost its grant, and the lives of countless stray dogs, cats, even birds and lizards are in jeopardy. The town is challenged to secure funding, and they launch plans for a Christmas in July event. Love gets in the way for four radically different couples.
Each of the four multi-published authors has a different take on the situation. "A Cockatoo for Two," by Lee Carver, reflects her life in foreign countries. Their pet cockatoo in Indonesia is brought to life as Atom, the science teacher's rescue pet.
"Brewed with Love," by Kimberly Rose Johnson, deals with fear of fire and romance with a fireman. The lovely coffee shop owner could never live with a man who puts his life on the line fighting fires.
Gail Sattler's "Mistletoe Madness" illustrated the difficulty of dealing with deep-seated insecurities of a very capable young woman. Her brother's best friend would like to re-define their relationship, but she isn't willing to get over the years he teased her. His feelings about her have changed, and he tries to involve her in working with him to aid the shelter. Is it too late to create a new kind of friendship?
Ginger Solomon's "Mr. Christmas and Miss Scrooge" takes the reader on another re-definition of relationship. Two different personalities, Mr. Christmas managing the hardware store of Miss Scrooge, combine their talents and serious challenges to aid the community and learn to depend on each other. But saving the animal shelter is not high on her list of important things to do.
Will he succeed in changing Miss Scrooge into Mrs. Christmas?
