Mistletoe for Felicity Book Review

Saturday, December 9, 2023


A Yuletide romance where fate, duty, and the magic of Christmas intertwine.

Lady Felicity Winters, having lost the last of her family, is alone in the world. Theodore "Tad" Harcourt, a merchant's son is thrust into navigating the complexities of high society. The two are bound in an arranged marriage—both a boon and a challenge.

As winter's chill gives way to holiday warmth, Felicity and Tad tentatively explore their new life together. From snowball fights with village children to the sparkle of a grand Christmas ball, their journey turns into a heartwarming adventure filled with newfound trust and festive cheer.

Yet questions remain—does Felicity see beyond her role as a dutiful wife, and can Tad truly find his place in her world? This tender, closed-door Regency romance unfurls beneath mistletoe and candlelight, where love dispels all doubts, and Christmas joy resides in the most unexpected corners. Open this cozy tale and let it melt your heart this holiday season.

Mistletoe for Felicity tells a story of two strangers navigating an arranged marriage in a new town on their own without family support. The author, Sally Britton, freshens the idea of a romance within an arranged marriage by adding Christmas magic. The author focused on the characters learning to find each other and their common ground by reaching out and helping others around them, spreading joy, and making a concentrated effort to improve their circumstances. This is a character driven novel. I felt like there was a slight hint of magical realism when the author mentioned a painting that one of the character's discovered...I kind of wished that the painting and the background story was explored a bit more. The romance is clean and cute.  It's appropriate for teens to adults. Overall, it's a cute, fun, easy-to-read. To learn more, click here.
