UNDER THE MISTLETOE WITH ME is a short novella about Isaac and Stacy Montgomery, two characters we meet in Kristen's wonder debut novel, Come Away with Me.
I thoroughly enjoyed this short story about this couple who have been together for 10 years. They are in a new phase of their relationship as they have a beautiful daughter who is 4 months' old. For reasons I do not want to spoil for the reader, this couple is very much aware that children are a blessing. That does not mean being parents is not affecting their relationship.
For those of you who need a memory jog, Isaac is one of Jules' brother. They are the couple with the baby that everyone wants to hold at the family BBQ.
After reading so many books about young love and new love, it was wonderful to watch two people who love each other working to make their relationship a priority. Someone once said the best thing a man can do for his children is to love their mother. Ms. Proby, thanks for creating a character who gets that!
Ms Proby was absolutely correct in her blurb when she said UNDER THE MISTLETOE WITH ME "reminds us of what it means to reconnect with the person you love the most, even if they never left in the first place."
Ms. Proby painted a vivid picture of the extended Montgomery clan. The love this family shares and the banter between the siblings will warm your heart. Oh, and I should tell all those Luke and Natalie fans—yes, you get a glimpse of them in this book.
I am very much looking forward to Jules' story Fight With Me (With Me in Seattle #2) as well as upcoming books about the rest of these characters—Will, the NFL football player; Caleb who is in the military; and Matt the cop.
