For the first 12 days of December I will be hosting a 12 Days of Christmas Books! Each day I will review a different Christmas book that I think you might enjoy this holiday season. For this eighth day of Christmas Books here is my book review for Meows and Mistletoe.
The 8th Day of Christmas Books
On this eighth Day of Christmas Books, I bring to you an anthology with eight different holiday stories! They are all set in the same small coastal town in Florida, Cat’s Paw Cove, and share a few of the same characters. But otherwise, you’ve got eight fantastic Christmas romances from eight different authors!
Authors: Sharon Buchbinder, Candace Colt, Darcy Devlon, Mia Ellas, Kerry Evelyn, Kristal Hollis, Debra Jess, and Sue-Ellen Welfonder

NEW YEAR’S KISS by Darcy Devlon
In order to overcome a family curse, Griffin Brooks, the town’s hotshot assistant fire chief, must earn his true love’s trust. Trina Lancaster knows she can release Griffin’s curse, but will her magical family baggage be a deal-breaker?
I love a good anthology! It is such a great way to “meet” new authors and revisit some old favorites! In Meows and Mistletoe, I was familiar with author Kerry Evelyn and Kristal Hollis, but all the others were new to me. So, I very much enjoy getting to know 6 new authors!
Having each of the stories take place in the same fictional town of Cat’s Paw Cove, Florida is incredibly clever. Being a Florida girl, and having been to many of our lovely coast towns, I found this a lot of fun to read. Cat’s Paw Cove is a magical town, but only a few can really see just how magical it is!
Each of the stories are very different. I love that the authors are in a variety of genres and well, obviously they each have their own writing styles. For example, Kerry Evelyn is a contemporary romance author, Kristal Hollis is a paranormal romance author, and Sue-Ellen Welfonder writes historical fiction.
I like though, being able to plow through a story quickly and know that more stories await! Because there are eight stories, each are fairly short, so it doesn’t take too much of a commitment to get through each of them. An easy book to pick up and put down as time allows.
If you enjoy reading new authors and want to try them out, this is a really fun way to do it. Grab a copy of Meows and Mistletoe now and get reading!
