Audie Award Finalist, Romance, 2014
The Sullivan siblings have captivated the hearts of listeners worldwide, and this Christmas, New York Times best-selling author Bella Andre shares the love story that started it all...
For Mary Sullivan, Christmas is, and always has been, about family. And this year is no different. As she awaits the arrival of her eight children and their partners at the cottage in Lake Tahoe, she hangs the ornaments that they made for her over the years. Each decoration brings with it a tide of memories, all of which she holds dear to her heart. But when she comes across the oldest ornament, the one her beloved husband, Jack, gave her on their very first Christmas together, Mary is immediately swept back to the first days of their whirlwind romance, to the love that would be the foundation on which they built the family she is so proud to call her own.
Join the Sullivans this Christmas for a story that explores the wonder of the holidays, the meaning of family and a love that transcends time.

No Depth . . . Too Much Repetition

Started out well . . . but I could hardly finish it . . . I like romance as much as the next person, but I can only listen to so much kissing and touchy/feely . . . the story lacks any depth or character development . . . this one is WAY too shallow for my taste . . . if you left out the love making scenes, it would last about five minutes . . .

First Thought when Finished: Kissing Under the Mistletoe is exactly the kind of Christmas read I love: sweet, moving, and in this case history of a character (Mary) that I love and adore!

Story Thoughts: Kissing Under the Mistletoe was a bittersweet read that had me crying both at the beginning and the end. Fans of The Sullivans series already know what is happening in the present day but it was wonderful to get Mary and Jack's love story. In fact, I have to say it is my 2nd favorite in the series. Perhaps it was knowing what their love created already but their instant connection worked for me (that is rare). Their whirlwind romance swept me off me feet and made me swoon. This is a fantastic Christmas read and I would highly recommend it to all fans of The Sullivan series.

Narrated by Eva Kaminsky /Length 7 hrs and 55 mins


Eva does a great job with The Sullivan series. She has the right emotion for these really deep and moving contemporary romances. I love the extra "emotion" she adds during the "falling in love" time. She also has great timing for the humorous parts.

Final Thoughts: I recommend Kissing Under the Mistletoe to anyone who has read even just one book in The Sullivan series. Mary's story is to good to pass by.
