Bells and Bows on Mistletoe Row by Emily Harvale: a sparkling Christmas romcom

Synopsis of Bells and Bows on Mistletoe Row

It’ll take a miracle to make Juliet’s Christmas merry, but Mistletoe Row is the place to be when you need some Christmas magic. 

The last person Juliet Bell expects to see when she returns home for Christmas is Harrison Bow. Especially with the most beautiful woman in the world by his side. Twenty years ago, Juliet and Harrison had the shortest romance in history, consisting of one date – and one blazing row. But Juliet will never admit when she’s wrong, and Harrison doesn’t forgive easily, so they haven’t seen, or spoken to one another since.

Harrison Bow vowed he’d never visit his grandfather at The Grange, again, or drive along Mistletoe Row, the scene of one of the unhappiest times of his life. He hasn’t been back for twenty years and he’s only here now because his brother pleaded with him to come. At least with his executive assistant joining him, he’ll be able to do some work. 

But Juliet’s sister, Zoe and Harrison’s brother, Luke have some surprises in store for their elder siblings, and so it seems does Fate. After Harrison risks his life to save Juliet, the least she can do is be nice. The problem is, Harrison is hotter than the log fire in The Mistletoe pub, and when she’s surrounded by twinkling lights and softly falling snow, it doesn’t take long for her to realise she’s in love with the man she thought she hated. Even if he doesn’t appear to be in love with her.

My review

 This is a witty and sparkling Christmas romcom with intriguing yet frustratingly stubborn characters and a ‘willthey won’t they’ plot that keeps you on tenterhooks! It has all the ingredients you want in a fun and festive novel

The setting is quintessentially festive and you get into a Christmassy mood from the very start of the book. There’s a family reunion, in fact two, and we get to see all the tensions you expect from these encounters, however much they’re looked forward to and however much everyone vows to be on their best behaviour and lot allow anyone to wind them up!

 The interactions between our various characters are fascinating, and very convincing.

 This story is an easy and delightful read that will brighten up anyone’s Christmas.
