ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Take a Right at the Mistletoe
Author: Barbara Brutt
Publisher: Vinspire Publishing
Release Date: November 9, 2020
Genre: Contemporary Romance (Clean)
Each and every holiday season at Vienna’s Christmas market, Matilda bakes confections for holiday tourists and quirky locals alike. Looking to escape the market drama, she sets her heart on culinary school.
Dylan has come to Vienna and the market to recover from a career-upending mistake and to unearth new inspiration. But when he nitpicks Matilda’s marzipan, she hears fighting words and perhaps the key to her culinary school application. They strike a deal: he’ll taste test and she’ll show him around Vienna. With each new pastry experiment and Viennese adventure, their relationship sweetens.
But their relationship doesn’t seem written into life’s cookbook. Dylan can’t stay in Vienna, and Matilda has to follow her dreams, so it seems some ingredients just don’t belong together. And yet, their hearts have already committed. Will a Christmas filled with marzipan and mistletoe give them both what they want the most?
IN MY OPINION
How do you make a Christmas novella even better? If you’re Barbara Brutt, you set the story in one Vienna’s Christmas markets, stir in a somewhat mysterious hero, add a dash of a quirky characters, and the secret ingredient of an uncertain future.
Take a Right at the Mistletoe is a sweet and fun read that swept me away with Matilda as she planned for her future while attempting to enjoy her present with her new acquaintance.
This Hallmark-esque Christmas story has many of the things I enjoy about Christmas but is served with a side of sweet treats to make your mouth water. This novella is much like I imagine Matilda’s marzipan—a small taste but sugar-coated and satisfying.
