Mutts and Mistletoe

    A delightful read! When Charlie's ceiling caves in, leaving her injured and temporarily injured, she decamps to her cousin Jez's place in Devon. It's Christmas and when Jez's love- who she's only communicated with via computer- invites her to the Arctic Circle, Jez leaves Charlie, who doesn't love dogs, in charge of her dog sitting business.

It's Christmas and when Jez's love- who she's only communicated with via computer- invites her to the Arctic Circle, Jez leaves Charlie, who doesn't love dogs, in charge of her dog sitting business. There's Cal, a hot veterinarian and Hugo, a good looking lovelorn visitor to a neighbor to keep track of, as well as some other delightful people in the village. Best of all, though are the dogs and how Charlie begins to relate to them. It's funny, the dialogue is good, and all in all, it's a pleasure. Thanks to Edelweiss for the ARC. Try this one for a good smile.

Full of laughs and romance and plenty about dogs and Christmas and shows how things can change in your life for the better. I have never laughed as much as when reading this book just so funny a very fantastic read with great countryside and loveable vets and plenty of dogs.

    Charlie hates Christmas and this year sets to be the worst as her boyfriend has left her and then her flat is out of bounds as it's had a gas leak and can't go near and she's in hospital with concussion. Her mother speak with her and says her cousin is on her way to collect her and she will spend some time with Jez in Devon. Once she gets there she realises her cousin is going away and she wants Charlie to look after the dogs in the day care she runs. So with a pregnant and deaf dog about over Christmas how will she cope and when she notices a person casing the place where is the beautiful vet when you want him. Will she enjoy Christmas in the end or not and will she find romance or will it be a total disaster.

    If you love dogs and want a laugh this is the perfect book for you.

Charlie hates Dogs. Oh well it’s off to the country side to spend Christmas meet new people and maybe fall in love with man and dog.

    This is a good book full of cute dogs, a little romance some misunderstanding and a healthy dose of laughter. I took half a star off because the ending was too open ended for me. There were to many lingering questions about the characters and I felt that many of the back stories could have been flushed out better. Especially Cals. Cal is her love interest kind of nothing really happens until the last twenty or so pages and it’s nothing steamy that’s for sure. But if you’re looking for a nice Christmas read to curl up with and get through easily this is a good book for you. There is also a slight LGBTQ+ storyline running in the back ground.

    Book comes out October 9th.

    The holidays - which for me begin on October 1 - are the only time of the year that I actually read and enjoy cozy mysteries and romance books. I think it has something to do with being raised on holiday classics which morphed into Hallmark Holiday movies. I like feeling nostalgic and magical and in love this time of year. If given the opportunity to read a fun holiday story, I will jump at the chance. Mutts and Mistletoe was such an opportunity! 

    Charlie's life has hit the rocks - her boyfriend just ran off with his trainer, her mother has fled to Australia with her new husband and, in a neighbor's freak explosion, her apartment ceiling caved in on her leaving her injured and homeless just in time for the holidays. She reluctantly agrees to spend time recuperating at her cousin's home in the middle of nowhere where her cousin runs an upscale doggy day-care. Charlie is not a dog fan and is even less of a fan of the country veterinarian with whom she gets off on the wrong foot. When Charlie's cousin makes the sudden decision to travel to the Arctic Circle to be with her online lover, Charlie is left in charge of the pooches, including her cousin's very pregnant, very spoiled pet, Peggy. Mayhem ensues as Charlie learns about dogs, their owners. There is a burglary gone wrong, holiday pet races that include a very well trained reindeer and a duck and so much more leading up the big event - Christmas Day. 

    The beginning of the book was a close deal breaker for me. I'm not sure what it was about the first chapter or so, but I disliked Charlie and her lifestyle so immensely that I, quite nearly, stopped reading the book. However, once the dogs were introduced into the story, it all turned around. It is very obvious that the author, Natalie Cox, loves dogs and understands their non-verbal communication perfectly. The detail of their personalities, quirks, beauty and relationships was so spot on that I found myself laughing hysterically, crying and nodding my head in agreement throughout. Poor Peggy, the pregnant pooch, was the star of the book without a doubt! Just as they transformed Charlie into a completely different person, they won over my heart and mind regarding the book. By the end, it became one of my very favorite holiday reads of this season. 

    I highly recommend Mutts and Mistletoes to all of those who have furbabies of their own, to those who love holiday tales and readers who enjoy light romance stories. This one is a winner! 

    Thank you to #Edelweiss, #PenguinRandomHouse and Natalie Cox for the opportunity to read this heart-warming tale which now is on sale at your favorite retailer.

    It was a funny story.

Jez comes to London to fetch Charlie and brings her to the country to heal and she asks her to take care of the B&B over the Christmas holiday so she can visit her lover in Iceland. Charlie is not a dog lover, but says OK.

    There is a nice looking Vet named Cal that takes care of Jez's animals, who starts looking good to Charlie.

    Cal is not looking for a relationship because he just got out of one. But he invites Charlie to dinner on Christmas and starts to notice her.

    The book has a lot of ups and downs and to boot, it has another man interested in Charlie. Someone who is boarding his dog with Charlie.

    The story kept me interested and it does have a surprising ending that everyone should read. Well organized and interesting to the end.

    I will recommend it to my friends and family.

    Full review coming for blog tour.

    Jam packed with humour, a pack of loveable dogs, and a romance to root for. And lots of Christmas sparkle and cheer. What more could you want from a feel good Christmas book.

    If you’re looking for a good Christmas comedy, look no further!

    Not Just for Christmas (or Mutts and Mistletoe, as it was previously published under that name) has everything you need this season in your festive chick lit: the most likeable protagonist you could wish for, many cute dogs, pups, hot guys, snow, food and lots and lots of humour.

    Not Just for Christmas (or Mutts and Mistletoe, as it was previously published under that name) has everything you need this season in your festive chick lit: the most likeable protagonist you could wish for, many cute dogs, pups, hot guys, snow, food and lots and lots of humour.

    Still, even though it’s funny and entertaining, it does not go overboard and everything in this novel, every element, is dosed just right.

    The story follows Charlie, who after the accident that caught her apartment, stays at her cousin’s place.

    Her cousin runs hotel for dogs, and after she goes on a trip to meet the love of her life, Charlie stays to run the place over Christmas.

    Charlie is not a dog person, but day by day she discovers the beauty of mutts and one’s relationship with them.

    Not Just for Christmas was lovely, warm story that put a smile on my face so many times.

    It is a feel good story that will make readers’ lives better, I honestly believe that.

    The writing style is stunning, and it reminds me of Sophie Kinsella’s, but it is still different. In my language, I would call it “pitko” which means that you drink the words, that’s how it easy is to read.

    This book has 352 pages and it felt like it had only 200 pages, that’s how fast I read it (and I am a slow reader).

    I liked all the characters. Even our villain was sympathetic.

    Still, my favorite was Malcolm, a deaf Dane who certainly gave this book a heart.

    I don’t say this often in my reviews, but I wouldn’t change anything in this novel.

    It was perfect just as it was, and I am so grateful I had a chance to read it.

    I can already see it will be the one book I’ll recommend to everyone around me.

    If you’re looking for a good Christmas comedy, I highly, highly recommend you Not Just for Christmas (or Mutts and Mistletoe) because trust me, it will put a smile on your face and warm your heart, just like it did my.

    Charlie winds up at her cousin m’s dog kennel after an accident at her home. Her cousin offers to take care of her but quickly leaves Charlie behind by herself.

    Charlie isn’t a dog person, so she begrudgingly agrees to watch the dogs while her cousin is away.

    It’s partially motivated by money. And sometimes I didn’t like Charlie much in the beginning of the book for that reason. She agreed to an amount her cousin would pay her to watch the dogs, which included giving one of the dogs suppositories.

    It’s partially motivated by money. And sometimes I didn’t like Charlie much in the beginning of the book for that reason. She agreed to an amount her cousin would pay her to watch the dogs, which included giving one of the dogs suppositories. Of course no one would want to do that. But she told her cousin she would and then tried to pawn it off on a friendly neighbor, only after not doing it herself.

    So, I can’t help it, I know Charlie is written as someone who doesn’t like dogs...and I know she’s basically stuck caring for them...but she shouldn’t have told her cousin she would give the dog medicine if she wasn’t going to do it.

    All right...moving on...

    Gradually Charlie begins to take better care of the dogs and to start liking them too.

    She also finds herself in a bit of a love triangle between one of the dog’s owners and the local vet.

    I thought this was a nice light read. It’s definitely what I had in mind when I picked it up.

    The animals are adorable and the setting is cute too.

    Of course it’s a bonus that it’s set at Christmastime.

    A sweet read during the holidays, or any other time.

    I won a this book through a Goodreads giveaway. Thanks!

    Let it be known that I love Christmas stories, the Christmas season, all things Christmas, and animals too. However, Mutts and Mistletoe left me in a bah humbug mood. The only thing remotely interesting besides the London/British vocabulary was the last mini-mystery thrown in at the end.

    I found Charlie,the protagonist, to be a shallow character who would not be on my top ten friend list.

    I found Charlie,the protagonist, to be a shallow character who would not be on my top ten friend list.

    The author seemed to have a check list that she diligently checked off: casual sex, LBGTQ, environment, serial marriages, a touch of mystery. I forced myself to read till the end of the book.

    I received this through a goodreads giveaway.
