Bring Along the Mistletoe | 2015 Romance Wish List

I’m giddy with excitement to present my first HOLIDAY POST OF 2015. Whew! I’ve been preparing for this for twelve months. Well, kind of. We have about a week to go before Thanksgiving so I thought it was safe to talk about holiday romances. (I swear on Santa’s sleigh I’ve only listened to two Christmas […]

Lucy - I’m ready to do a little holiday reading but I never know where to start. Thanks for spreading the holiday cheer and all the great festive reading suggestions!

Hollie - I love Sarah Morgan’s Christmas books! She’s always a perfect pick to get me in the festive spirit. I’ve already started my Christmas reading, and purchased 3 holiday-themed books ready to dive into when I’ve got a spare few minutes. I’ll have to check out Christmas in Mustang Creek (and the rest of the series!) as it sounds brilliant.

Lauren @ Bookmark Lit - I love seeing other people that get in the spirit before Thanksgiving too! I just love the holiday season SO much and refuse to wait until December lol. Reading holiday romances is my favorite, so I’m glad to see some options for my TBR!

Christy T - The last great romance I read was A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas!

June 16, 2015 - 12:57 pm

christy - Beautiful cover! I just finished a so-so NA romance and am currently reading a romantic suspense. As far as favorites this year, I enjoyed “Burying Water” by K.A. Tucker and “Cookie Cutter” by Jo Richardson.

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I so, so, so need to check out Linda Lael Miller. Where should I start?

June 14, 2015 - 4:26 pm

Grace @ She Reads Things - I usually don’t read adult romance books (YA is my choice of poison!), but this book looks great! I’d say that the last books with a good romance component that I really liked would have to be The Longest Ride and the Nantucket Series. I absolutely adored those books!

-Grace 🙂

Leah - Do you do this to me on purpose, E?! I seriously need to get on board with the Linda Lael Miller love – every single book that you have reviewed has sounded fantastic and absolutely perfect for a lazy summer day. (Though I was be all over an Abe Lincoln book!)

Eep, going through my shelves, it’s been an embarrassingly long time since I’ve read a straight up romance novel. Sure, there have been books to include a romance (The Sound of Glass, The Last Letter From Your Lover, Seraphina, etc) but the last ROMANCE novel I read was in 2013. Surrender to Sultry by Macy Beckett. Two years ago. Help me, Obi-Wan Estelle. You’re my only hope.

shokufeh - I just finished the Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah, and keep thinking about it. It’s not classified as a romance, but is definitely about love (and the challenges that may be involved).

Alexa S. - Oh, you and your cowboys, Estelle 🙂 But really, this book sounds like a fun read! I really love a good romance novel, but it’s even better that this one has three best friends in it too 🙂

June 7, 2014 - 12:55 pm

Ann - It would definitely be the food. haha

June 7, 2014 - 11:51 am

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I’ve been wanting to try out Linda Lael Miller’s books for awhile now, I just haven’t gotten around to it. I LOVE romances that have main characters having really strong friendships. I think Nora Roberts is really good at that.

Glad you liked The Marriage Plot. I’ll have to add it to my TBR list.

Alexa Y. - Cowboys! A ranch! This book sounds like a positively escapist sort of read, as I’ve never really met a cowboy or gone to real ranch. I’m glad that the relationship and how it develops is done fairly well, and it’s also great that each character has their own challenges to deal with.

September 10, 2013 - 7:52 am

Maggie, Young Adult Anonymous - Okay, Estelle. You have me intrigued enough that I may get over my hatred of ridiculous names (Brylee??) to read this. Kissing cowboys! Mmm hmm…

The only small town I’d want to visit is Stars Hollow! 🙂

September 7, 2013 - 10:42 pm

Kai W. - There are two places I would love to revisit. They are Ojai (in Southern California) and Half Moon Bay (up near San Francisco). I found them to be quite calm and quiet without the hussle and bussle of the city.

September 5, 2013 - 7:15 pm

Bookworm1858 - I don’t read a lot of contemporary romances or western books but I do like the sound of this one especially since you say the characters are so realistic and down to earth.

September 5, 2013 - 6:39 pm

Leah @ The Pretty Good Gatsby - I’m SUCH a sucker for cowboys/country boys. Mmm. I see Miller’s books constantly at work and have been curious for a while now. 🙂 You’ve sold me on this one, Estelle!

September 5, 2013 - 1:52 pm

Tammy - I would love to drive up the northwest coast again. Small coastal towns are fun to pop in and visit.

Alexa Y. - This basically sounds like the perfect romance novel to read during the summer. I mean, come on COWBOYS. It doesn’t get much more attractive than that 😉

May 31, 2013 - 8:32 am

Daphne - i read the first book in this series & loved it & actually have the others but haven’t gotten to them yet. this looks really cute, though i’m kind of confused why they have TWO kids together and they’re still not trying to make it work. one i can understand. but anyway, i will definitely get to this one eventually. 🙂

May 30, 2013 - 2:40 pm

Molli - Well, it just so happens that I LOVE both country music AND cowboys. It’s been awhile since I read many adult contemporary romances, but I’m definitely looking to get back into reading a few more. I’ll have to keep an eye out for this one, or another one by the author, since you seemed to enjoy it, and loved the dialogue. Nice review, Estelle!

May 30, 2013 - 10:08 am

Natalie @ Books, etc. - I soooo want to read this! It’s about cowboys and country music, TWO OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS!!!! Great review, Estelle 🙂
