Mistletoe – Lyn Gardner

MistletoeWhen she was 4, and had recently lost her parents, Diana Clarke wrote a long letter to Santa asking for a soulmate. In a sweet childish way she asked to have somebody who loved her like her mummy and daddy had loved each other.

Unfortunately for Diana, her letter got stuck in the lining of Santa’s sack and 30 years later is found by Santa’s senior elf.

Mr Claus has never failed a child yet, but there are rules that mean he can’t give a gift to an adult. But with special dispensation he can deliver a suitable present and a handy little helper to make sure it works out.


This is a delightful novella is a joy to read. It is lighthearted, funny and full of childish glee. Well written and decently edited it flows of the page. The characters are well rounded and hard not to love. Even the baddies soften up into decent human beings under the onslaught of a full blown romantic childhood Christmas.

It’s a ‘love at first sight’ followed by stunningly good sex type of novel, but swathed in warmth and joy which has to warm the most unbelieving and cynical heart.

An excellent Christmas read, definitely one to put under the tree for all your friends, and undoubtedly one to warm up your own Christmas.

PS.. I know it’s Valentines not Christmas, but was feeling a bit down all on my lonesome and needed a joyful, romantic, quick read.. so came back to this wonderful little book.
