ARC Review: Magic and Mistletoe, by Annabelle Jacobs

From the blurb:


Christmas is Harry’s favourite time of the year, but it looks like he’ll be spending it alone. When it comes to the men he fancies, his luck is non-existent. Harry’s nerves always get the better of him—especially when he tries to talk to Andrew, the hot guy downstairs. Everything changes when Harry meets a mysterious girl in the woods who professes to be a witch. He dismisses her claims, but when odd things start happening to him, he has to reconsider. Andrew was attracted to Harry from the start, but their awkward encounters put him off. All goes well until Harry opens his mouth—and ruins it with his stupidity and silly comments. When Harry suddenly becomes more relaxed and they have a proper conversation, Andrew realises his first impression was wrong. As the days count down to December 25, they get swept up in the Christmas spirit and their relationship moves faster than either expected. A little winter magic might have been the push they needed, but Harry worries that when it wears off, he’ll no longer be the man Andrew wants.




AnnaLund's rating:




I love the touch of a good witch here and there, especially of the sweet and caring kind.
This was a super-cute little Christmas novella, about a young man with no brain/mouth-filter and his hunky love interest from the downstairs apartment. All paired with a little magic.

Cute and a little steamy.
For once the double POV wasn’t grating on my mind, either authors have gotten better at writing switching POVs, or I have just gotten more used to them. Here, it was a tool well wielded.

I would have liked a bit more of a backstory on the fabulous witch, Melia. One chapter from her POV would have been perfect.

It is a quirky, funny, and very sweet read, and I was honestly giggling to myself at times.



Get yourself a cuppa strong tea, grab your blanket, and settle in for a seasonal, very British read. It is lovely.
