What’s Christmas without family drama, an accident, and mistletoe?

If you ask Portia Spears, it’s a horror movie—especially since she’s never the one caught under that mistletoe. And who thought it was a good idea to spend the last Christmas as a family unit away from their family home?

Her bossy older sisters, that’s who.

Christmas at his parents’ house with his son—just the way Reese Whitaker likes it. But a chance encounter on the beach might just change everything. How often do you meet someone who loves kids and knows American Sign Language?

Not often. Trust him.

However, with just two weeks to get to know each other and two families that couldn’t be more different vying for their time, will they even have a chance to test out that mistletoe they found?

Find out today in Sand & Mistletoe.

How do you not fall for a single dad who has old fashioned values and can quote Jane Austen?

I enjoyed the way that Reese fell so quickly for Portia. Not love at first sight, just “I really want to get to know you better”. And I liked the way that he pursued her, yet in a gentlemanly and compassionate way. The fact that even when he knew she wanted him to kiss her, he waited. And waited. And waited.

Portia and her family were fun, though I’m not sure how long I would have lasted in their house!  The tempers! The turmoil and the interactions of the daughters of the house were a bit crazy! There were so many lessons that they needed to learn. How to love each other, show patience and kindness.

This is a great romance filled with sweet moments and spiritual lessons.

About Chautona Havig

Chautona Havig lives in an oxymoron, escapes into imaginary worlds that look startlingly similar to ours and writes the stories that emerge. An irrepressible optimist, Chautona sees everything through a kaleidoscope of It’s a Wonderful Life sprinkled with fairy tales. Find her on the web and say howdy—if you can remember how to spell her name.

  1. Aw… thanks for such a thoughtful review. Yes, if my family was like Portia’s… all angsty, I’d go NUTS. But tiny moments… when I’m not around to shut it down. Yep. They’d do it if they could. Ornery kids.
