Minor spoilers for anyone who hasn't read the first three books of the Lucky Harbor series - which I HIGHLY recommend!

Take an hour out of your day, make some coffee, curl up on the couch with a blanket, and get ready to enjoy an adorable, funny, heartwarming short story that will make your toes curl it's so sweet.

Remember when we found out Tara and Ford have a daughter together named Mia? This is her story.

In Under the Mistletoe, we get to see a glimpse into five years to see where Mia is. She is now living in New York getting her degree and has been dating Nick for six months. She's in love with him and has high hopes he feels the same. But when she asks Nick to go with her to Lucky Harbor for Aunt Chloe and soon-to-be Uncle Sawyer's wedding, things don’t go as planned. Mia is left to go to Lucky Harbor by herself with a broken heart. Nick soon realizes he's made a mistake. Fearing he might lose Mia forever, he follows her to Lucky Harbor with the hope he can win her back.

"You're it for me. You're everything." He paused and let his gaze touch her every feature. "You're the best choice I ever made. You're my only choice."

When this story ended, I really wanted MORE of Nick and Mia's story. I'm greedy like that when it comes to the Lucky Harbor series. And if you’ve read the first three books of the Lucky Harbor series, you get to revisit some old friends: Tara, Ford, Maddie, Jax, Chloe, Sawyer, and even Lucinda had a brief part.

I love how Ms. Shalvis always weaves humor, family, and romance into a story. Even in a short story like this one, she manages to add those elements. She has become one of my most favorite contemporary romance authors.

This is such a fabulously charming story you don’t want to miss out reading during the holidays!
