For Officer Justin Weaver, Christmas is the most hideous time of the year. To improve his “holiday cheer,” he’s been put on Officer Kringle duty, collecting toys for the Ho-Ho-Patrol.

It’s a week in holiday hell.

Worse, it comes with an elf—his little sister’s gorgeous best friend—but Lilly Maddox isn’t so little anymore. And as an annoyingly festive reporter looking to make her mark, she’s there to document his every move.

Justin’s always had a thing for Lilly, but he refuses to go there with her. Ever. Not after watching what his mom went through as a cop’s wife. But now that they’re trapped in his squad car, avoiding her just got a lot more complicated…

As winter sleet, ice, snow, and ice loom, and the day-job continues its relentlessly demanding pace, I can at least celebrate the coming holidays.

I voluntary downloaded to read and review for free Mistletoe Kisses from Entangled Publishing LLC. This is the first book I have read by Marnie Blue. But it wont be the last.

Rating: 3.5 stars

Mistletoe Kisses is a cute Christmas romance about a cop coerced into playing a reluctant Santa for the holidays as a PR move and the report/elf covering the story who turns out to be his sister's childhood best friend. This is a pretty short book and I'd actually class it more as a ...more

This is such a cute romance.
I don't often read holiday themed romances or books for that matter, since I think they can sometimes be too cliche or... I suppose Hallmark-y is the best word for it. Nothing wro ...more

Who doesn't like a Christmas romance? The answer to that is no one. Everyone loves a good ol' Christmas romance. And Mistletoe Kisses was no exception.

By Helois October 25, 2018

3.5 stars, for this fun,cute, clean and slightly sappy story. In other word this could be a Hallmark Christmas movie.. in fact it should be. A lighthearted read that touches on some serious issues such as PTSD.

The police department in an effort to show the softer/nicer face, has chosen Justin to pl ...more

Reviewed at Keeper Bookshelf

Mistletoe Kisses is one of those stories that you could easily imagine as a Christmas movie. It has all the earmarks that would play out well on film. It’s a combination romance in the sense of lighthearted, laugh out loud moments – and some deeper issues, often part of ...more

By Lori October 24, 2018

Such a clean, refreshingly sweet story! Lilly and Justin have known each other forever, who were friends but maybe always felt a little something more. Fast forward several years and those feelings are still there, but with a little apprehension. Things have changed for both of them. Justin does not ...more

By Karen October 21, 2018

The best way to describe this wonderful Christmas novella is “sweet”. The storyline is great with an easy ebb and flow, and the characters are heart-warming and real. I loved the relationship between Justin and Lilly, but the support cast add valuable depth to the story as well. Marnie Blue has a wr ...more

By Mags October 22, 2018

Mistletoe Kisses is the sort of story that would put even the Grinch in a festive mood. As it's packed full of festive cheer. Not to mention it's entertaining, super cute, and fast paced. And it left me with a big smile on my face.

A holiday romance that feels a little like a Hallmark movie. They suck me in every year at the holidays, and the likeness made Wrapped Up in You a fun read.

Justin is not happy to be playing the role of Santa for the police department. He's even less happy when he finds out the reporter he's ...more

About the author

Marnie Blue

Marnie Blue writes funny—at least, that’s what people tell her. A former middle school teacher, Marnie also writes secretly and seriously as a ghostwriter. Writing romances, however, is her greatest and most favorite genre. When she’s not writing, she is picking up horse poop at Horses Bring Hope Therapeutic Riding Center, a non-profit agency which brings horses and kids together with love and learning. She and her two dogs live in Rhode Island where they binge on rom coms and low carb snacks, and avoid doing laundry until all the underwear is gone. They share their television and their snacks with her hot-cop husband (who was dressed as Santa when she met him), their two boisterous boys who routinely steal her desk chair because it rolls so nicely, and their scientifically-minded and animal-rescuing daughter.
