How the moose (almost) stole Christmas.
Lana Montgomery is everything the quirky small town of Moose Springs, Alaska can’t stand: a rich socialite with dreams of changing things for the better. But Lana’s determined to prove that she belongs… even if it means trading her stilettos for snow boots and tracking one of the town’s hairiest Christmas mysteries: the Santa Moose, an antlered Grinch hell-bent on destroying every bit of holiday cheer (and tinsel) it can sink its teeth into.
And really…how hard could it be?
The last few years have been tough on Rick Harding, and it’s not getting any easier now that his dream girl’s back in town. When Lana accidentally tranquilizes him instead of the Santa Moose, it’s clear she needs help, fast…and this could be his chance to finally catch her eye. It’s an all-out Christmas war, but if they can nab that darn moose before it destroys the town, Rick and Lana might finally find a place where they both belong… together.
Happy Publishing Day to Mistletoe and Mr. Right! I was so excited to return to Moose Springs! The Tourist Attraction was such a lovely surprise, and I knew I already adored all the characters that it introduced, so I didn’t have any doubts that I would enjoy Mistletoe & Mr. Right.
“I don’t know how to keep being me without you.”Sarah Morgenthaler, Mistletoe and Mr. Right
Lana is such a strong character, and she absolutely deserves her own story. She may seem like the opposite of Rick in every way, but the one thing they share for sure is they are lonely. They are two lonely people that deserve to be happy. Lana is having a hard time getting the locals to warm up to her, but she never gives up. And watching her try again and again is sweet, but also made me a little angry at the people of Moose Springs.
Rick has his flaws—he’s a bit stuck in his ways and at times painfully shy—but one thing he is not, is scared off easily. His unwavering loyalty is refreshing. And I loved that he allowed himself to be vulnerable, too.
If you prefer your holiday romances lighter on Christmas, this one would probably fit the bill. It wasn’t overly Christmas-y, but still left me warm and fuzzy. Not to mention there’s an assortment of animals—including an elusive moose, a cute hedgehog, and an irresistible kitten.
It was nice getting to catch up with Graham and Zoey, as well. And while I enjoyed Mistletoe & Mr. Right, The Tourist Attraction still edges it out a bit as my favorite. Lana and Rick were a fun couple to root for, and I was sad to see this one end. I’ll be looking forward to the next book set in Moose Springs!
Thank you to the publisher Sourcebooks Casablanca and Netgalley for providing me with an advance copy.

A Song For A Book
On Bookstagram I created a hashtag for when I include a song that reminds me of the book I’m sharing, #ASongForABook, I thought I’d make it a regular feature on my reviews, too.
My song choice for Mistletoe and Mr. Right was easy. I think Mariah Carey may have even been mentioned in the book….
I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true oh
All I want for Christmas is you
