Mistletoe Magic (Copper Mountain Christmas #3) by Melissa McClone
Mistletoe Magic (A Copper Mountain Christmas Book 3)
Spending a quiet Christmas housesitting and reading novels about hot cowboys sounds perfect to Caitlin Butler. Until a stray kitten brings her face-to-face with Noah, her crush from college. Watching the handsome vet in action melts Caitlin's heart and brings back long forgotten emotions. She would be safer back at the house lost in the pages of a book. But a toe-curling mistletoe kiss tempts her to stay. Maybe she won't be spending this Christmas... alone.
Veterinarian Noah Sullivan isn't a Scrooge, but the Christmas Eve tradition of hanging mistletoe in the clinic's waiting room annoys him. Kissing doesn't belong at the Copper Mountain Animal Hospital. Noah rethinks his position when Caitlin arrives with a stray kitten she found freezing in the snow. All he wants now is to maneuver the pretty preschool teacher under the mistletoe. If he's not careful, he'll wind up on Santa's naughty list.
Mistletoe Magic is a short story companion to the Copper Mountain Christmas series.
Mistletoe Magic is a cute, fun holiday story full of Christmas magic! Caitlin is housesitting for the holidays and is really looking forward to it. She doesn't really have anyone to spend the holidays with so having this decorated house will be nice for her.
Noah is the vet in town and he used to date Caitlin in college. He doesn't realize she is living in town, nor she him. When Caitlin finds a stray cat freezing to death she rushes it to the animal hospital. When she first sees Noah all the memories rush back in. She loved him, and he left her to go pursue his veterinary school. She was upset at the time, and he broke her heart. He was surprised by how much he missed her after leaving her, but then he couldn't find her again. Seeing her after all this time on Christmas Eve is a pleasant surprise and he knows he needs to try and right the wrongs and try to convince her to give him another chance. The mistletoe that he had earlier not wanted hung suddenly is a nice welcome surprise since it ends up helping him win Caitlin over. It is cheesy and moves quickly and is just full of Christmas magic and I loved this story. It is definitely going on the Christmas re-read list.
