This Christmas, three couples find themselves under the mistletoe . . . whether they want to be there or not.

Say No to Mistletoe by Sheila Roberts--Mistletoe is Hailey Fairchild's kryptonite. Every time she's kissed someone under the mistletoe it's led to love disaster. Not a good thing for a romance writer! When she was a gawky high school girl, her hunky neighbor, Carwyn Davies, star of the basketball team (and her dreams) kissed her under the mistletoe on a dare. But the kiss wasn't a dream come true. It was a mortifying moment she's never forgotten, and now she's about to go home for the holidays, unengaged and . . . determined to say no to mistletoe. Especially if Carwyn is anywhere around.

Return to Mistletoe by Kathleen Fuller--Emmy Banks has always loved Christmas. How could she not when she lives in Mistletoe, Missouri? Kieran O'Neill has spent years abroad, renovating an old Irish castle, but returns to Mistletoe for his mother's seventieth birthday. He reconnects with Emmy, his sister's close friend, and spends time with her in her charming antique shop. When the weather turns colder, things start to warm up between Emmy and Kieran. But can Emmy risk her heart when she knows he'll never stay in Mistletoe, and she will never leave?

The Mistletoe Prince by Pepper Basham--Prince Arran St. Clare has lost his freedom and fairytale life in exchange for a three-month "punishment" in the small town of Ransom, North Carolina. To prove he is ready for the royal life for which he was born, Arran must engage in the Christmas charity fundraiser, The Mistletoe Wish. But when kindness, authenticity, and hard work prove more appreciated in Appalachia than a royal pedigree, Arran must face the mirror and find out who he is beyond the crown. Add a beautiful and intelligent woman who doesn't recognize her own worth, some mistletoe, and a little Christmas magic and it all might be enough to help the rebel-prince understand what truly matters most.

This Christmas, three couples find themselves under the mistletoe . . . whether they want to be there or not.

I enjoyed reading these 3 Christmas novellas. My favorite was Pepper Basham’s, as it ties in with her recent series of Authentically Izzy, Positively Penelope, and Loyally Luke. Mistletoe gets worked into each of the stories in different ways, but always provides opportunities for the main characters to kiss :-) The characters in each of the stories are well done, and the various plot twists keep up interest. A fun read for getting ready for Christmas!

Mistletoe Season is a must for all! I am a huge fan of these three authors, so getting the chance to read this book of novellas was amazing. So grab this book and snuggle up because you won't be setting this down until it's done.

Thank you NetGalley for an ARC of Mistletoe Season by Sheila Roberts, Kathleen Fuller and Pepper Basham

This delightful book has three heartwarming stories that take place at Christmas time. Each is a separate, standalone story, written by one of these three authors, who are among my favorites.
These heartfelt, holiday stories have loveable, relatable characters, who either meet their Prince Charming (literally) or a former high school crush comes back into their lives unexpectedly. Although actual mistletoe plays an important role in each of these charming, heartwarming, holiday stories, each of the young women learn that some of the scariest things in life can bring the biggest blessing.

This book was really good. I love reading Christmas books all year because they are always so positive. I love how this one had three different but good endings to it. I'm grateful that netgalley and the publishers let me read this in exchange for a good review

I've only read one of these authors before but I have enjoyed Pepper Basham's Skymar series so I decided to give this collection a shot. I was glad I did. Each story differs from the others but the mistletoe ties them all in.

Return to Mistletoe by Kathleen Fuller
I enjoyed the story overall but it was marred by the repeated use of the word 'lass'. I get why it was in the story but for whatever reason, its use grates upon me as much as the using babe as a pet name. I don't like either of them so 'lass' kept irritating me. Probably not going to bug most people though and I was glad they got their HEA. 4*

Mistletoe Prince by Pepper Basham
I have been enjoying the Skymar series so I was happy to get to spend a little time with their prince. I liked him and how supportive he was with Charlie. Their meet cute wasn't very cute. In fact it was messy and kinda gross but them looking beyond that to see the best in each other was made all the sweeter by it. Had some Christian themes. 5*

Say No to Mistletoe by Sheila Roberts
While I'm often not a big fan of first person stories, the opening chapter of this one was delightful and wouldn't have been so much without being told in first person. And I was sold. I enjoyed the story and was so relieved when the mean girl was outed. Whew! This could almost be an insta-love story except that she had a crush on him for many years. So it was kinda a second chance trope except they had never been together. They just shared one mistletoe kiss in high school. And it didn't go well. I was happy for them to get their HEA too. 5*

Overall, I enjoyed this collection of stories. It was a fun read.

No sex, language or violence

I requested this book based on the cover, not realizing that it is 3 shorter stories, and I was pleasantly surprised! It may be hot here and almost summer, but these stories got me right into the Christmas spirit. So fun!

An absolutely delightful book featuring three novellas that worthy enough of their own full novel. These stories will grab your heart and imagination putting you into a festive mood for the holiday season.

While each story is unique, you cannot help but find yourself fully immersed in each one and how they seamlessly flow into the next story. You find yourself feeling all the emotions of the characters and even laughing at some of their antics.

I finished this book with a happy heart and smile on my face! I highly recommend reading this book especially during the holidays.

What a fun collection of Mistletoe stories! I really enjoyed all 3 stories in this collection! I love how each author tells a different story all related to the Christmas season and mistletoe.

Return to Mistletoe by Kathleen Turner - I enjoyed this story so much. I really like the fact that the author featured main characters who are in their 40’s. Emmy is an independent business owner who feels like her chance at true love has passed her by. Kieran is her best friend’s brother, and her high school crush, who finally comes home to visit after living in Ireland for more than 20 years.

The Mistletoe Prince by Pepper Basham - I have read the 3 Skymar books by Pepper Basham and was so excited for this story which features some of our favorite characters from Loyally, Luke, and also introduces new favorites! This author managed to pack ALL the best parts of the Edgewood stories into this lovely novella. Without giving any spoilers, I will just say that I love Charlie and her journey to find confidence and believe she is enough. Prince Arran is all I hoped he would be and more than I ever expected.

Say No to Mistletoe by Sheila Roberts - What a fun story! Hailey reluctantly returns home to spend Christmas with her family. After some disastrous mistletoe kisses (including her first kiss on a dare with Carwyn, her high school crush and neighbor years ago) she vows to avoid mistletoe at all costs. Little does Hailey know, Carwyn has been anticipating her return and possibly a second chance under the mistletoe with Hailey.

Mistletoe Season is three short holiday stories. The first one was called Return To Mistletoe by Kathleen Fuller and I really enjoyed getting to know Emmy and Kieran. They were cute! The second story was A Mistletoe Prince by Pepper Basham. I almost skipped this because it’s a royal prince story and I just don’t like those. When a royal movie comes on Hallmark, I turn the channel, I just find them so silly. But I wanted to give this a chance and I’m so glad I did, because it was sweet and I really enjoyed it! The last story is Say No To Mistletoe by Sheila Roberts. This was by far my favorite! Hailey and Carwyn are adorable and it really put me in the Christmas spirit (in May!)

This is an enjoyable 3-novella Christmas/Mistletoe collection, My favorite is The Mistletoe Prince by Pepper Basham, which takes place after her Loyally, Luke novel. Prince Arran comes to Mt. Airy, NC to help Luke with construction and meets Charlie/Charlotte. Can they work out all the royal vs common issues and distance issues? Luke and Ellie play parts too!

Return to Mistletoe, by Kathleen Fuller, is about Emmy, who owns an antique shop in Mistletoe, MO, and Kieran O’Neill, who just sold his castle in Ireland and comes back home to Mistletoe. I enjoyed this one too.

Say No to Mistletoe, by Sheila Roberts starts out with Hailey saying to herself that mistletoe is her kryponite. It’s in the first person, but gets better as she meets someone and tries to stay away from mistletoe! Sweet, cute.

All 3 novellas were sweet, very enjoyable reads.

I got this ARC from Netgalley. It is three mini-stories in on book. Each story is filled with love and, obviously, mistletoe. The first story focus on a antique store owner finding love in an Irishman and getting her dream. The second follows a small town girl finding love, courage, self-worth and strength, and her prince charming along the way. The last story follows a New York Author going home as she is going through some personal issues, only to find herself and love along way.
Each stories are very well written.
10/10 recommend.
