Savannah, or Savy as she’s known by friends and family, has spent a week at Christmas with her father in Vail for years. During the time there she has been friends with Glen since they were kids. They spend time together every year doing all the holiday things together as Savy has always loved everything Christmas. Unfortunately, Glen does something a bit stupid during their time together out of good intentions but it truly hurts Savy’s feelings.
The Hazards of Mistletoe is the fourth book in the Hazard series but the first and only one I’ve read. It did read find as a standalone.
When finished I’d rate this story only at 2.5 stars. The first thing that really bothered me right off was the conversations in the story would often just run together to where you really couldn’t tell who was saying what so it was hard to focus and get to know the characters. The chapters were also just broken up with a number between paragraphs which may be the review copy so I would likely overlook that if it had been the only thing and I hadn’t had trouble with the dialogue too.
Generally I love a good Christmas romance and a part of me did still love reading all the winter fun that comes with the holidays but unfortunately I just didn’t love this particular couple and their story. Glen was an alright character, yes he did a stupid thing but tried to make up for it. Savy though seemed really immature to me. She is only nineteen and I suppose that could be part of it but I was somewhat wanting to pull my hair out with her refusal to listen to Glen. With the conversations being hard to follow I became really bored with the back and forth between the two and there was quite a bit of it.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
