Escaping the bustling city of Boston, free-spirited romance novelist Addison retreats to a tranquil, snow-kissed cabin in the town of Rockport, brimming with dreams of crafting her next novel. Unbeknownst to her, destiny serves an intriguing twist as she stumbles upon Liam, the charming yet enigmatic bookstore owner with a shady past as riveting as the novels on his shelves.

It's always great to start a new series and to meet new people. A new series by Kimberly Thomas is even more exciting because you always know that you’re going to get some great well-written characters in a beautiful setting. Tinsel & Mistletoe is the first book in a new Christmas trilogy and caught my interest on the first page. Addison is an author who is looking for inspiration for her new novel. She’s never settled down in one place and plans to stay in the small town of Rockport for only enough time to write her new book. Once she meets Liam, a bookstore owner, she may be headed for a change of plans. Will they be able to at least spend a joyful Christmas together in the midst of a town feud between two families that has lasted several generations or will the feud ruin Christmas for them and the entire town? This cute romance left me anxious to read book two in the series.
