21 Dec Under The Mistletoe by Sue Moorcroft
A romantic and heartwarming festive read
I’ve come to expect extra depth from Sue Moorcroft’s romantic novels – she doesn’t shy away from challenging issues.
Despite its light-hearted title, Under the Mistletoe is no expection, dealing as it does with emotional problems like teenage bullying, agoraphobia and infertility as well as an issue that’s been highlighted by the #metoo movement – historic sexual assault.
An incident in her teen years has affected heroine Laurel Hill’s whole life. When she returns to Middledip village to look after her agoraphobic sister and her teenage niece, she finds she must not only help them with their daily challenges, but confront her own demons if she is to move on and find lasting love and happiness.
There’s plenty Christmas content here, with snowy scenes, and carol singing, the making of Christmas wreaths and festive fayres, but don’t expect too much superficial glitter and tinsel.
This story really brings into focus the true meaning of Christmas – it’s a time for peace, joy and hope. But can Laurel find any of these things if she can’t find it in her heart to forgive, if not forget?
With heroes Laurel and her love interest Grady taking central stage, a strong supporting cast of characters in their friends and family, and a thought-provoking plot, Under The Mistletoe made my return to Sue Moorcroft’s Middledip even more enjoyable than usual this year.
Under The Mistletoe by Sue Moorcroft is available in paperback and ebook
