I am very excited to bring you my review of Magic Under The Mistletoe by Lucy Coleman as part of her blog tour.
Christmas and romance are in the air…
It’s December 23rd and while everyone else is rushing home for the holidays, workaholic Leesa Oliver is dreading switching on her out-of-office for the festive season. And it seems her equally driven boss, Cary Anderson, isn’t relishing spending Christmas at his family’s country estate either.
So together, they draft an unexpected Christmas contract: They’ll spend half of the holidays with each other’s families, pretending to be a couple. Leesa knows the insufferably good-looking Cary will make her Christmas more bearable, but what happens after the last of the mince pies have been eaten…?
Leesa signed off on a sensible business agreement, but somewhere, amongst the fairy lights and carols something seems to have changed… It seems there might just be some magic under the mistletoe this Christmas!
Leesa Oliver is a workaholic. As the owner of Dynamic Videography, Leesa thrives on using her creativity to help organisations sell themselves and their causes. Her hard work is slowly paying off and she finds herself becoming busier, and winning herself some awards. Her work brings her to the attention of Cary Anderson, an equally driven CEO who requires her services to create a promotional video for his own company. Neither Leesa or Cary have the time or inclination for a personal life after having both been burnt in the past. As a result, they are both dreading returning to their homes for the festive season with their well meaning, but sometimes interfering families.
After a particularly long flight home from Sydney together, Leesa and Cary find themselves drawing up a contract which will see them getting through the holidays together, in the hope that it will make their time with their families a little easier, relieving the expectations placed upon them.
Well….I loved this novel! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked it up, but wow! Leesa and Cary are both intricate characters, both of whom are scared of giving up their hearts to anyone but equally worried about disappointing their families. Their contract provides them both with the perfect opportunity to please their loved ones whilst protecting themselves. The setting of this novel is beautiful and it is full of Christmas – perfect for this time of year. I cannot recommend this novel enough – find yourself a blanket, grab a glass of wine and snuggle up!
