Review – The Boy Under The Mistletoe by Katey Lovell

By | December 15, 2015

Every Happily Ever After began with a Once Upon a Time…

After working a busy Christmas Eve shift at her family’s flower shop, Chelsea can barely keep her eyes open for her Gran’s annual festive get-together. Can her Christmas dreams come true under the mistletoe?

Last month I had the great pleasure of reading and reviewing the first three stories in the Meet Cute series by new author Katey Lovell. You’ll find my review here – I really enjoyed The Boy In The BookshopThe Boy At The Bakery and The Boy On The Beach. So I was quite delighted when Katey sent me an advance copy of the next in the series, The Boy Under The Mistletoe, to be published by Harper Impulse for Kindle on 17th December, and available for pre-order.

Like the others, this a very short story – if you read it while cooking your sprouts, they’ll still be a bit crunchy – but quite perfectly told. The story’s a simple one – poor exhausted Chelsea unexpectedly finds the start of her own fairy tale at her Gran’s Christmas party – but it’s beautifully delivered and quite wonderfully Christmassy. Katey writes excellent dialogue, great descriptions and this story has the same easy, readable style – perfect for a lighter short story – that the first three stories had. Quite lovely – but I do hope we’ll soon be seeing something a little longer from this lovely new author!

Katey Lovell is the author of The Meet Cute series.  The Boy in the Bookshop, the first short story in the series was released on October 29th, published by Harper Impulse. followed by The Boy at the Beachon November 5th and The Boy at the Bakery on November 12th.

Katey is fanatical about words. An avid reader, writer and poet, she once auditioned for Countdown and still tapes the show every night. Getting the conundrum before the contestants is her ultimate thrill.

 She loves love and strives to write feel-good romance that’ll make you laugh and cry in equal measure. 

Originally from South Wales, Katey now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and their seven year old son.
