Blog Tour: Review of Christmas at Mistletoe Cove Holly Martin


It's my stop on Holly Martin's blog tour today where I bring you my review of Christmas at Mistletoe Cove! This book came out on Friday and is the third in the Hope Island series. The buy links and all the info about Holly and her wonderful writing is below the review-enjoy!


Christmas has arrived at Hope Island, promising snowflakes, surprises and plenty of seasonal joy. So snuggle up and fall in love at Mistletoe Cove …

Growing up on Hope Island, Eden Lancaster always believed that if you wished hard enough for something, dreams really could come true. But Eden’s greatest wish is also her biggest secret: she has been completely in love with her childhood friend, the charming and attractive Dougie Harrison, for as long as she can remember. And he has no idea. 

When Dougie leaves his successful life in New York to return home to Hope Island for good, Eden can’t escape her feelings. Her heart is full of hope that her romantic dreams are finally, at long last, going to come true…

This Christmas could change everything. But can a lifelong friendship really turn into the perfect romance? And will Eden get the happily ever after she’s always wished for?




Review: I LOVED being back on Hope Island with the Lancaster family again, I have so enjoyed getting to know them and getting to revise them across these three books, I really hope this is not the end and we get to hear more from these siblings! I was so pleased to finally get caught up with Eden and Dougie's story because we have got to know a lot about them and about their friendship and so it was great to spend some more time with them to see the 'will they? won't they?' aspect of their relationship play out. 

These are both great characters and because we have met them both before, it doesn't take too long to get to know them in more detail. I love Eden as a person and really wan t the best for her because she is so good to her friends and family and deserves all the happiness in the world. I know what it must be like for Dougie being back in the UK after being in America for so long and trying to fall back into a friendship after that friendship being mostly long distance, and it was great to find out just what sort of a person he was too. These are very likeable characters and so you will definitely find yourself rooting for them the whole way through this book. 

As with the other books in this Hope Island series, there is an element of, perhaps there is something more than friendship here, perhaps there isn't, are they going to get together or not and that definitely makes for a real page turner, you have to keep going to find out what is going to happen and what the consequences of certain actions and events are going to be. Holly Martin is awesome at writing romantic male leads, I don't know what's in the water on Hope Island but Holly really should bottle it so we can all have this kind of romance in our lives! As I have mentioned before, she also knows how to write a seriously hot sex scene, hold onto your hats because this will have you more than a little bit hot under the collar!

Because this is the third book in a series, surrounding three siblings who live in Hope Island, if you start with this book, you will be spoiled for the other tow, so I would definitely recommend reading the books in order. If you are in the mood for some truly lovely characters and the ultimate in romantic reads though, I would recommend spending the week reading all three back to back and swooning over these hunky males and flirty females-you won't be sorry. This will also give you a taste for Island life and the sea air so don't be too surprised if you find yourself planning a trip to Hope Island, or its nearest equivalent as soon as you start reading!
