Interview + Review + Giveaway ~ The Trouble With Mistletoe by Jennifer Snow


For all of the BBMoreB followers who may not be familiar with you work, tell us a bit about yourself?

Hi Everyone J I am a contemporary romance fiction writer publishing through Harlequin Heartwarming, The Wild Rose Press and Secret Cravings Publishing. The Trouble With Mistletoe is the first book in my six book small town Brookhollow series releasing November 2013. I am a member of RWA, The Writers Guild of Alberta, SheWrites, and the Canadian Authors Association. 

What is your Favorite scene from The Trouble With Mistletoe and why?

That’s a tough one…I love a lot of the scenes between Victoria and Luke toward the end of the book, but without giving away spoilers, I think one of my favorites is a scene with Victoria and her old high school friends when she first arrives in Brookhollow. Their idea of a girl’s night out in the small town is very different from what she is used to living in New York. 

What is your favorite trope to read, one you will never get tired of?

I like the Friends to Lovers trope-which I use in book two of the series-What A Girl Wants. There is something so great about friends realizing there could be so much more to their relationship. They already have such a strong foundation to build a lasting union on and in most cases one person has loved the other secretly for years, making the happy ending that much more rewarding.

What are your goals as a writer? 

I have definitely achieved my primary goal, which was to write for Harlequin and I’m so glad my books found a home with the Heartwarming line. Going forward, I have several other projects I am working on…and ultimately-I wouldn’t say no if Hallmark wanted to turn one of my books into a movie someday lol J  Dream big, right?

Do you have any specific last thoughts that you want to share with us? 

I just want to thank my readers for their support and encouragement with the launch of this new series. And if anyone has a sweet, contemporary story they are trying to find a home for-try Harlequin Heartwarming J And finally, thank you for hosting me today!

You can't say no to a mistletoe kiss, no matter who's under it!

Since leaving Brookhollow and her fiancé, Luke Dawson, twelve years earlier, Victoria Mason hasn't looked back. She's traded the small-town dream of marriage, kids and family Christmas dinners for late nights working at a high-powered acquisitions firm, lunches at trendy New York restaurants and jet-set vacations on the slopes.

So her latest work assignment, to acquire Brookhollow's sporting-goods store, poses a challenge for Victoria, in more ways than one. Because it's almost Christmas, and she's got other holiday plans. And the owner is reluctant to sell. And the owner is Luke. She needs to wrap up the deal before she gets caught up in her old life and her old love…or becomes trapped under the mistletoe. Again.
I love Christmas and reading Christmas books. I was definitely not disappointed in Trouble with Mistletoe. This was sweet, heartwarming story filled with love, lost and found. Truly a great book to put you in Christmas spirit.

Luke and Victoria were engaged when young but called the wedding off two weeks before the wedding. 12 years later Victoria ended going home because of business. Her company was trying to acquire and had an acquisition for Luke's Sport Shop. The chemistry between the two had never sizzled out, was as strong as ever, if not stronger. I loved Luke's character, he was funny, caring, charming, compassionate, friendly, strong, successful, hardworking and loved wholeheartedly.

A simple acquisition had the power to turn into so much more. But hearts had to heal and is love truly enough. This was a great Christmas Read, That I highly recommend.

  5. The happily ever after that one usally doesn't get in real life. Love is hard & the holidays harder. To read about someone else struggling & finding happiness is a heart warmer. Hugs & Happy Holidays

    1. Thanks for commenting:) Me too. I love literary love stories as well where the endings are not always happy, but genre romance is the best when you want a feel-good read:)
