Review of Merry Mistletoe by Emma Davies - 


Sherbourne Mistletoe has been prized and sold at the annual Mistletoe Fair for over a hundred years; but could this year possibly be the last? With her father’s sudden death and debts mounting up it looks as though Freya’s only hope for the future is to sell her beloved family home. And to make matters worse, the only contenders to buy Appleyard Farm, are the people she’d least like to sell it to – the dreaded Henderson brothers who seem always to make life so difficult.
It’s magical stuff though, mistletoe, and the arrival of the mysterious Amos Fry brings a glimmer of hope that just maybe Freya can fall in love with Christmas all over again.
As the snow begins to fall, cosy up and find your sparkle this Christmas with another big-hearted, and wonderfully warm read from the author of Letting in Light.


This is a sweet novella - full of hope and sparkles! Freya is a lovely woman, trying to hold onto her farm against all the odds. Even when she decides to sell, mentally she is unprepared to face the future away from her home.

I loved Amos. A mysterious man who appears and disappears as required and interferes just enough to resolve the situations. Sam and Stephen were brothers but like chalk and cheese...or so it seems.

I loved the way the mistletoe held the story together and seemed magical itself.

Can really recommend this one!
