First in this book is the story entitled Forever Love. This is a historical work concerning a man named Hank Beaumont, his horse Stripper, and his rescuing a woman kidnapped after her stage was robbed. Her “husband” was killed. Do you believe in ghosts?

It Must Have Been The Mistletoe told of Kacey Michaels who moved to Mistletoe, Tennessee, and Nicholas Klaus, a widower with eight children, who owned a toy store. This tale will make you question magic and whether or not mistletoe has magical powers.

Building gingerbread houses has been a long-standing tradition at Christmastime. Gingerbread and Mistletoe brought together a competition, with Matt Watson from Hoosier Bakery and an unlikely partner, Riley Callahan, trying to win a $2,000 prize. What can you substitute for mistletoe?

If you like stories about expectant mothers you will love Calling Hailey’s Bluff. Hailey, a computer program specialist, was called cross country to work on a program for Johnson Space Center. Her baby’s father, Lt Col Todd Coopersmith, was stationed there. This novella gives new meaning to surprise delivery.

A little bit mystical, along with ‘wild blood,’ slanted this book from its basic historical genre. Melody had loved Trevor Wilde, Earl of Ardmoor, for over ten years. He did not love her. A Chorus Singing Love by Gerri Bowen addressed the question of true soul mates.

Finally, A Very Special Man, written by Deborah MacGillivray, spanned three centuries with Simon, a big black cat, and Desdemona Vashon (Dezzy) and a spell begging to be broken to assure true love.This anthology is available at the perfect time of the year -— Christmas. We love the holiday season and now we have another reason to add to our list. Love Under the Mistletoe is a six-author 

anthology which has something to offer anyone who loves to read. Whatever your genre, you’ll find a novella which addresses your desires.

The varied stories were great reads and the characters were well thought out and likeable. They worked well together as stories with good background information and wonderful endings. I recommend this book to everyone. You won’t be sorry.
