Not Just for Christmas

Ing her cousin's house And where is Cal the unbearably patronizing but disturbingly handsome local vet when she needs himAs the days tick down to Christmas Charlie's life has never felt so out of control but with some help from her new four legged friends she just might learn a thing or two about living in the moment embracing the unexpected and opening herself up to lov. So ever since I saw this cover I ve been dreaming of a nice uiet weekend snuggled in a furry blankets with my pups snuggling by my side I was thrilled to get an ARC and have saved it for the Christmas season In fact it was the perfect fit for a recent readathon But somehow this book left me feeling a little flat Now I will admit that the last 30% or so saved it for me because in the beginning I feared it was not going to live up to my anticipation So Charlie lives in London and was recently dumped by her boyfriend As Christmas nears a gas explosion in her apartment building almost impales her she ends up needing a place to stay Her mother who loves to meddle arranges for Charlie to spend the holiday with her cousin Jez who lives in the country and runs Cozy Canine Cottages However Charlie is not a dog person Needless to say Charlie eventually goes and stays with Jez who is actually a much likable person that Charlie While there she meets the local vet who she calls Bovine Cal because he specializes in yep you guessed it cows Cal and Charlie do not hit it off and things become even complicated when Jez decides to take off for the North Pole to rendezvous with an on line girlfriend leaving Charlie in charge of the dogs who are boarding there for Christmas Even Cal uestions why Jez would do such a thingSo despite not liking dogs Charlie ends up taking in even boarders as the holidays draw closer and before you know it she has a full house literally because the heat in the cottages go out Add in a small mystery a hunk named Hugo who is engaged to the local snob and alpacas and you have Mutts and MistletoeLike I said in my opinion the last part totally saved the novel However I did have a couple of issues that I just can t get over First of all Charlie isn t a dog person Strike one Secondly her cousin leaves her in charge of the dogs and the kennel to traipse to the North Pole not a smart business decision And last but not least see the adorable dogs on the cover The ones who made me fall in love with this book before I even started Well they are even in the book Don t get me wrong there are some adorable dogs We have a deaf Great Dane named Malcolm a pregnant beagle why did you leave Charlie with your personal pregnant beagle Jez two Alaskan Malamutes an elderly dog who they call Slab because he doesn t move much and an Irish Setter See lots to chose from so why aren t any of THEM on the cover I have since discovered several foreign editions and both covers are indicative of the bookSo overall I did enjoy this book but not as much as I had hoped There are some great characters in the little country town whose oddness only make them that much endearing The dogs are fun and adorable and Charlie does exhibit some character growth which is good because she needed it So even though I could easily give this a 35 it s probably like a 35 so for Goodreads sake I ll add up After all it s still an adorable coverI received this book from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

If you are a dog lover then Mutts and Mistletoe is must read book for you Even if you aren t a dog lover you will enjoy this delightful holiday bookThe holidays which for me begin on October 1 are the only time of the year that I actually read and enjoy cozy mysteries and romance books I think it has something to do with being raised on holiday classics which morphed into Hallmark Holiday movies I like feeling nostalgic and magical and in love this time of year If given the opportunity to read a fun holiday story I will jump at the chance Mutts and Mistletoe was such an opportunity Charlie s life has hit the rocks her boyfriend just ran off with his trainer her mother has fled to Australia with her new husband and in a neighbor s freak explosion her apartment ceiling caved in on her leaving her injured and homeless just in time for the holidays She reluctantly agrees to spend time recuperating at her cousin s home in the middle of nowhere where her cousin runs an upscale doggy day care Charlie is not a dog fan and is even less of a fan of the country veterinarian with whom she gets off on the wrong foot When Charlie s cousin makes the sudden decision to travel to the Arctic Circle to be with her online lover Charlie is left in charge of the pooches including her cousin s very pregnant very spoiled pet Peggy Mayhem ensues as Charlie learns about dogs their owners There is a burglary gone wrong holiday pet races that include a very well trained reindeer and a duck and so much leading up the big event Christmas Day The beginning of the book was a close deal breaker for me I m not sure what it was about the first chapter or so but I disliked Charlie and her lifestyle so immensely that I uite nearly stopped reading the book However once the dogs were introduced into the story it all turned around It is very obvious that the author Natalie Cox loves dogs and understands their non verbal communication perfectly The detail of their personalities uirks beauty and relationships was so spot on that I found myself laughing hysterically crying and nodding my head in agreement throughout Poor Peggy the pregnant pooch was the star of the book without a doubt Just as they transformed Charlie into a completely different person they won over my heart and mind regarding the book By the end it became one of my very favorite holiday reads of this season I highly recommend Mutts and Mistletoes to all of those who have furbabies of their own to those who love holiday tales and readers who enjoy light romance stories This one is a winner Thank you to Edelweiss PenguinRandomHouse and Natalie Cox for the opportunity to read this heart warming tale which now is on sale at your favorite retailer
