AVOIDING THE MISTLETOE – with Mistletoe, Jingle Belles, and Second Chances


BACK COVER BLURB - 1865 - Desperate widow Olivia Rose Baker abandons her dying hometown in Massachusetts to become a mail-order bride in male-dominated Seattle, Washington. Her abusive husband died in the Civil War and left Olivia wary of marriage, so she hopes to take a teaching position rather than become a bride.

But the man who purchased her ticket to Seattle insists she fulfil her contract and marry.


Stark Macaulay, former Confederate and now Sheriff of Seattle, is smitten with Olivia. Stark, unlike all the rich men in Seattle, has nothing to offer Olivia but his love. But Olivia hates anything to do with the Confederacy.

Both fight an uphill battle. Both clash with demons from the past. Both struggle with desperate futures. Will these strong-willed people gain a second chance at love?



Desperate widow Olivia accepts a position as a mail-order bride, yet refuses to accept any male’s proposal. Fighting demons of his own, Sheriff Stark sees a second chance for love. This widower vows to win the widow or die trying…and almost does.

1. No, i don't know the story.
2. I have been kissed under the mistletoe by two different young men and one of them became my husband.
Thank you for a chance to review your book.
I am still waiting for my first kiss so who knows where that will be. God does surprise me now and again.

Truthfully, I've not heard the full mistletoe tradition but I have been taken to search for it!  What a fun time to gather our own and hang it strategically in our country home as young-marrieds!  :-)

2. No, I have never been kissed by a special person under the mistletoe. :)

The answer to all 3 questions is "no". I am going to look up the mistletoe tradition. Sounds like interesting reading. Thanks for the chance to win a book or gift card.

I have only kissed my hubby under the mistletoe. I have never heard the whole story. Would love to review 6 weeks plz

2. I don't remember specifically, but I'm sure that my hubby and I have done so in the past.
