What was meant to be a fling turns into a love they both thought they’d never have or deserved….

Alexis Paige did not make a habit of drunkenly booking travel for herself on the internet. But after the worst breakup ever, she's going wherever the wind, and her widowed dad, urges her to go. Now Alexis is on a plane to Colorado and Mistletoe Manor. The guy seated next to her is easy on the eyes, and oddly charming, but he's also obnoxious. She's relieved she never has to see Grayson Wells again. She's had enough of indecipherable men.

Until she walks into Mistletoe Manor. Grayson's aunt runs the rustic bed and breakfast, and it's his annual holiday spot. He knows the town well and wants to show Alexis all it has to offer. She's leery, especially of a guy like Grayson who's a little too smooth, but she can't find a reason to say no. One kiss under the famed mistletoe and it's almost too easy to say yes. She tells herself that Grayson is a fling, but it hurts to say goodbye only a few short weeks later. Darn that mistletoe…

Back at home, Alexis finds everything shifting—career, her childhood home on the market, and oh yeah, her dad's marital status. She's thrilled her father has found love, but it's too much at once, especially when she's still missing her mom and feeling like her romantic life is doomed. When her dad announces the nuptials will take place at Mistletoe Manor, she fears the trip will just make her sad over what might have been. But when Grayson turns up and puts it all on the line, will Alexis give in to love or will she regret that mistletoe kiss?

Hi Tracy. Welcome to Read Your Writes Book Reviews. How are you?
Exhausted! It’s been a busy few weeks with the release of Mistletoe Mishap and keeping up with my workout routine! I hope all is well with you and your readership!

Thank you. Speaking for myself, I'm good. I'm just a tad bit excited for Christmas. Please tell me about your latest release, Mistletoe Mishap.
Mistletoe Mishap was so much fun to write. It’s the story of Alexis Paige trying to move on with her life after a bad breakup while other changes in her life are thrown at her.

Tell me about the characters of Alexis Paige and Grayson Wells.
Alexis is a strong woman who doesn’t hold back, sometimes to the point of error. Grayson is a handsome man that Alexis finds obnoxious until she realizes how cute he actually is!

Who are some of the secondary characters we’ll see in the story?
Tonya, Alexis’s best friend, shows up a few times. She is blunt and fun. Gretchen is a key secondary character…and I love her. She is the love interest of Alexis’s dad.

The blurb mentions “famed mistletoe”. Is there some legend associated with Mistletoe Manor?
Not at Mistletoe Manor. This is simply referencing the mistletoe and how when you are under a mistletoe with someone you are supposed to kiss.

The blurb also mentions that Alexis and Grayson never thought they would have or deserved love. Why is that?
Alexis is hurt pretty bad in the beginning of the book and she thinks maybe she just doesn’t deserve to be with anyone. Grayson never thought he’d find someone like Alexis.

Can you tell me a fun fact or two about Mistletoe Mishap?
I dedicated the book to Justin Bieber! I love his song “Mistletoe” and it’s a song I can listen to year-round.

Mistletoe Mishap is categorized as a romantic comedy. Can you tell me about one of the funny scenes from the book?
One of the funny scenes is also the most swoon-worthy scenes in my opinion. You’ll have to read the book.

What’s your favorite part of a book to write?
The beginning. I don’t know why. I love to write about how it all starts.

How do you get into the Christmas spirit to write a book, when it’s at least 80 degrees outside?
I can listen to Christmas music all year, watch holiday movies all year, and read holiday books all year. I guess I’m always in the spirit!

Tracy, thank you so much for introducing Mistletoe Mishap to me and the blog readers. Also, thank you for answering some questions.

Alexis hit the Unfriend button. Why did she have her assistant as a friend online anyway? Come to think of it, she still had herself connected to Jonah. She searched for his name and clicked on it.

He hadn’t posted for months, which was like him. He used the social network intermittently. His last post was the two of them on vacation over Easter. Alexis had much shorter hair, and her eyes were wide and glowing. She remembered this day as though it had just happened. She had been so in love. Alexis took the time to study his face. Did he show any signs back then that he didn’t want to be with her? His face beamed with a smile so big his eyes were slits. His arms covered her like a blanket. Everything about that picture said he loved her.


She clicked the unfriend button on his profile as well. What about all the pictures of them together she posted on her profile page? She clicked over to her photos. There were so many. At least a hundred. Alexis loved taking photos of the two of them together. If she wanted to take them off her page, she’d have to sit and delete every single picture one by one.

Who had time for such a rigorous process? She probably did, seeing as she didn’t have a job anymore. But she wasn’t going to spend her time doing that.

“I’m deleting my account.”


Alexis shrugged halfheartedly. “Why not? I don’t need to be on here. I’m too old for this crap. Social media? No, thank you.” She found her profile settings and clicked into the deactivation area. She had two choices, deactivate and she could come back another time, or delete permanently.

She clicked “Permanently delete account” and confirmed she wanted to do this. With a sigh, she flopped back onto the couch and let her head fall back.

She kind of wished she could suspend her life.
