Wedding at Mistletoe Chalet by Dani Collins is the quintessential feel-good holiday treat. Kristen is a busy manager at a big hotel chain who finds herself alone for Christmas. Rather than sit at home by herself, she takes a short term job at a bed and breakfast in the mountains called the “Mistletoe Chalet.” Once there, she meets owners Ted and Wendy and their precocious pre-teen daughter, Sarah. Soon enough, she is persuaded into helping Sarah plan a very special holiday surprise. Kristen is in for a surprise of her own when her teenage sweetheart, soon-to-be doctor, Finn arrives to make amends for breaking her heart. With a little help from friends and a little holiday magic, they might just get a second chance at love.
Wedding at Mistletoe Chalet by Dani Collins was the perfect quick read to get me into the holiday spirit, and is just the book to read while enjoying a cup of tea and making your Christmas list. I enjoyed meeting Kristen and Finn and rooting for their reunion. Everyone has someone in their past that remains a what-if, and this book does a nice job of fulfilling the fantasy of what could happen should that person reappear in their life. The secondary characters of Wendy, Ted, and Sarah were also well fleshed out and felt like people you would want to know. Planning for the wedding gave the story a good framework, and I appreciated the epilogue, so that we could see Finn and Kristen’s wedding as well! I would definitely put this on my list of feel-good holiday books to read.
