Under the Mistletoe – Sue Moorcroft

A lovely review of Under the Mistletoe from Kelly T’s Space. 😊♥️

Kelly T's Space

Christmas. A time for family, friends – and rekindling old frames…

When Laurel returns to the village of Middledip, she’s looking for a quiet life. Adjusting to her recent divorce, she’s ready to spend some time getting back on her feet amidst the glorious snow-dusted countryside.

Yet, life in Middledip is far from straightforward. Coming to the aid of her sister, Rea, as she navigates her own troubles, Laurel barely has a moment to think about where her life is going.

However, time stands still when she sees her old flame, Grady – and it’s soon as if they’ve never been apart. But through her happiness, Laurel remembers why she left the village all those years ago, as she recall a dark night and Grady’s once-wayward brother, Mac…

Can Laurel learn to forgive and forget? Or will her chances of Christmas under the mistletoe with Grady remain a dream?

Moving read, involving many sensitive issues – Under the Mistletoe by Sue Moorcroft – beautiful!

I do believe this is my first ever review in rhyme! Grateful thanks to Splashes into Books.


My Review:

When family dramas cause Laurel to return home again She never expected her old feelings about there to remain. There are memories that are great but others are sad As traumatic experiences made her leave and still feel bad. However, time has passed so can she now Put all the bad memories into the past somehow? Will they still drive her away? Can she work out how to stay? This story has so many sensitive issues involved They're handled with care but not all can be resolved. Agoraphobia, assault, bullying, blackmail and more play their part In this delightful story, with love at its heart. Teen pranks have impacts on many folks for years Some are forgotten but others end in fears and tears. The perpetrators usually don't realise their impact at the time Or the fact that they're actually committing a crime. There are fantastic characters brought…

Sue Moorcroft is my #AuthorInTheFestiveSpotlight today – Underneath the Mistletoe – @suemoorcroft @AvonBooksUK

Thanks to Joanne of Portobello Book Blog for hosting me on her blog. She’s done such a lovely job of putting me in her author spotlight that I wanted to reblog it on my own blog, too.

Portobello Book Blog

Welcome to a brand new feature on my blog. From now until Christmas, I’ll be sharing two posts a week featuring authors who have Christmas or wintry, seasonal books out this year. They’ll be telling us a bit about their books and answering some fun Christmas questions. I’m delighted that the first author joining me is one of my favourites, Sue Moorcroft. Sue’s latest book is out now and I’ll be reviewing it next week.

Sue in Sweden in December

First of all, would you tell my blog readers a little about yourself?

I write two books a year for Avon HarperCollins. This year there were actually three, as I revised my very first book and that came out, too. I’m also published in many other countries. I was an army kid, born in Germany and brought up for several years in Cyprus and Malta, but I’ve lived in Northamptonshire…
