Copper Mountain Christmas #3
by Melissa McClone
Spending a quiet Christmas housesitting and reading novels about hot cowboys sounds perfect to Caitlin Butler. Until a stray kitten brings her face-to-face with Noah, her crush from college. Watching the handsome vet in action melts Caitlin's heart and brings back long forgotten emotions. She would be safer back at the house lost in the pages of a book. But a toe-curling mistletoe kiss tempts her to stay. Maybe she won't be spending this Christmas... alone.Veterinarian Noah Sullivan isn't a Scrooge, but the Christmas Eve tradition of hanging mistletoe in the clinic's waiting room annoys him. Kissing doesn't belong at the Copper Mountain Animal Hospital. Noah rethinks his position when Caitlin arrives with a stray kitten she found freezing in the snow. All he wants now is to maneuver the pretty preschool teacher under the mistletoe. If he's not careful, he'll wind up on Santa's naughty list.
Mistletoe Magic is a short story companion to the Copper Mountain Christmas series. I haven't read that series, but I decided to read it because it seemed like a sweet and quick story, and free!. Also because one of the protagonist is a veterinarian hehe.
It was a extremely cute and super fast romance. The characters had some history but find each other again years later and with just some kissed decide they are meant to be together. You don't need to read the series to read this story, I actually recommend to read a short story before reading a whole book because that way you will know if you would like the series. In this case Mistletoe Magic was too cute for me, I wanted a little bit more of action, but it's the perfect sweet romance to read with a cup of tea...or coffee....or wine. :P
