About the Book

Book: Mistletoe Village

Author: Kathleen J. Robison

Genre: Holiday Romance

Release date: November 30, 2021

Two broken women, two defeated children. Can Grace offer what they’re looking for? When the big city holds nothing but painful memories for sisters Rence and Sandy, they pack it up and head out for Grace and the promises it holds.

Promises of a new start. A new job at Grace General for Rence and a place to begin healing. But most of all, a promise to each of the sisters’ hurting children that a real Christmas awaits them in Grace, complete with snow on giant evergreens and lots of Mistletoe Magic.

But despite its Christmas card atmosphere, Grace, Oregon seems to hold a lot of secrets. Who is that giant of a man they encounter in the woods? Why won’t anyone talk about him? What is the hold the past seems to have over the town? Will they be able to break it before history tragically repeats itself? And will Grace be the place where love and forgiveness finally meet?

More from Kathleen

I love Christmas stories, and since becoming an author, I’ve wanted to write one. Mistletoe Village started out as Mistletoe Hermit, but then it wasn’t going in quite the happy direction that I wanted. So Mistletoe Village was born. I wrote this sweet, cozy, slightly suspenseful romance with all the elements that make Christmas … Christmas! But most importantly, it’s always about the faith element, Christ.

The main character Rence Paladin is dear to my heart. She was created with someone extraordinary in mind, and I had that person read the book to see what she thought. When she finished, she turned bright red and answered, even if you hadn’t told me … I knew it was me! However, it’s not her story, but it encompasses her delightful personality, some of her sweet memories of a single-mom, and how she strives to keep her focus on Christ while always serving others.

So let’s go. Let me take you to Mistletoe Village. You’ll find a little of everything that oozes Christmas in the tiny town of Grace. Holiday spirit, decorations, a children’s church pageant, and a Christmas festival. Oh, and I’ll introduce you to little Gus, the feisty family cock-a-poo. But most of all, I hope you, like Rence and Carl, rediscover the joy of Christmas at Mistletoe Village.


A Christmas in July story? Well yes I will be glad to read this book because Christmas books are fun to read year round. I couldn’t wait to snuggle under  a blanket with my hot chocolate and get lost in the story. It may be over one hundred degrees where I live but I couldn’t resist getting into the atmosphere of this story filled with snow, a sleigh, reindeer and a beautiful town. 

I loved how the author weaved the stories of two sisters beginning a new adventure together. They both had reasons to leave the big city behind with hopes of  finding a place they could call home. Their children were struggling with hurting hearts and needed a place to heal. Maybe this is the town they were meant to start over in. It sure had some inviting people there and one who others were a bit afraid of. 

The book is a nice clean story filled with promising relationships, healing, small town celebration and faith that helped characters grow and learn to trust God. My favorite character was Carl. He was described as this larger than life man who stayed to himself. Many wondered about him but one thing I knew for sure was he loved God and cared for his mother without complaining. I wanted to know more about him and why others seemed to judge him. 

Come join the author to a place where forgiveness happens, new friends are made and Christmas is celebrated by renewing relationships with God. I loved how the author  makes you feel as if you have landed in the story and walk around interacting  with the characters. Are you ready to visit The Mistletoe Village? 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
