    Sweet But long

    This was a very sweet story and I loved Carry and Leesa so much but this book was way longer then it needed to be. It just seemed to go on and on with nothing overly exciting ever really happening. I just wish it had been shorter because I would've rated it higher.

    Punishingly long

    I really should have paid attention to the reviews which said that this was too long, but I love a 'fake relationship' story so ignored them. I shouldn't have... This book should have been half the length, and had serious re-writes with the dialogue. There were conversations about business which felt like I was stuck at a nightmare dinner party wedged between two boring workaholics who can't talk about anything other than work. And then there were the 'listen to your heart' and 'the past can't be fixed' diatribes. I can stomach some, but they seemed to happen constantly. The forced relationship plot was uninteresting - none of the usual 'moments' this trope throws up were there in any significant way. As for the characters, there was little development and neither of the main characters were hugely likeable. The setting was fine (though way too much description of some parts of the house), and the Christmas theme strong enough to warrant a 'Christmas Read' title. The font size I had it at meant it was 444pgs long, and nothing really happened till about page 95 - so that gives you an idea of what you're in for. Not recommended Finally... A bit of nit picking... I should have known that I was in for an irritating read when, within the first chapters the author had one of the lead characters going to the standard Oryx lounge in Doha, rather than the first class lounge the character's first class seat would have provided. I can suspend disbelief, but that was just lazy writing.

    Heartfelt, festive, and romantic!

    Magic Under the Mistletoe is a lovely, character-driven rom-com that sweeps you away to the city of Cardiff and into the lives of the devoted, workaholic Leesa and the arrogant, successful Cary as they discover that there may be more to their relationship than just work, pretend feelings, and fake dating. The writing is warm and light. The characters are hardworking, complex, and supportive. And the plot is an irresistible, wintery treat bursting with heart, humour, self-discovery, secrets, heat, spirit, chemistry, Christmas cheer, and familial drama. Overall, Magic Under the Mistletoe is another cosy, uplifting, delightfully enchanting story by Coleman that is the perfect holiday choice for any blustery afternoon read.

    Workaholics vs. Relationships

    My first book by Lucy Coleman I have read but will not be the last one I. A delightful and interesting book. The characters are fully developed. There are several sub plots that peaked my interest and Leesa the main character. They are all tied up with great conclusions. Page turning to learn how the relationships progress. After reading I found that Lucy Coleman is the pen name of Linn B. Halton. A great read for the a Christmas season or any other.
