I loved this sweet Christmas story!! Evelyn and Colin were fun characters. My only complaint--I wish it was longer--it ended way too quickly; but it was a perfect story for this busy time of year.

True to Donna's other great regency romances this story fits right in. I love the Evelyn and Colin. Michael was intriguing.
A nice way to take a load of a refresh your brain.

This was such a fun Regency Christmas Story. I loved the Regency era details and the beautiful romance during the dancing as well as under the mistletoe. You will not regret reading this during the season - or any time of the year. It was delightful and delicious...loved the nibbling comment! Great job, Donna! Thanks for sharing!

Mistletoe Magic: A Christmas Regency Short Story by Donna Hatch
Love the reference to hand knitted muffler at the beginning of this book. Love very detailed
descriptions of the group skating on ice. Brought back memories of the family and relative
children skating on the cow ponds in the fields below our house each winter.
Race on the ice leads to a tragedy that could've been worse.
I am very happy the knitted muffler and others came to the rescue.

After Colin saved Evelyn's life he thought about how he would win her over from the one she had set her eyes on:Michael.
Artwork on the floor sounds exquisite!
Love descriptins of the flowers and mistletoe. I can almost smell them.
At the masquerade ball Evelyn thought she knew Micheal was one wearing a half gold mask. There were a
lot there with that particular mask on. She danced with many but wanted to find him and get him under
the mistltoe.
Colin wanted to get Evelyn under the mistletoe.
She danced and talked to who she thought was Michael and made plans for the dinner waltz and then they'd
site down to dinner together. Dance finally over and they strolled to the dinner, through mistletoe arch where
they kissed. upon removing their masks she found out she had been deceived and ran away.
Colin reveals something to Evie and she had a confession to make after full realization hit.
Very happy ending, that mistletoe was magic.
I rate this book a 5, very touching holiday story.
