Prah, Constantine, and Baryeh Reviews: Can't Miss Christmas (Mirror Lake #3.5) by Miranda Liasson

Happy holidays fabulous readers. I’m pretty sure you’re all busy preparing for the Christmas season, but I hope you get some time to read a little, too. This month we kept it light and short with a Christmas novella.

Remember to stop by Constantine and Baryeh's blogs to see what they thought of the book.

Have a fantastic and safe holiday!

The Blurb
Here comes a charming standalone Christmas novella by Amazon bestselling author Miranda Liasson. Fans of both Mirror Lake series will recognize familiar elements and people along the way.

It’s two days before Christmas and bestselling children’s author Grace Alberts needs to fulfill a promise—to make it to a book signing for the kids at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the place that did so much for her during a very rough time. But the weather’s getting awful and all flights are cancelled out of Boston, where she’s wrapping up her book tour. Then in walks her annoying but extremely sexy ex-husband, who (as usual) thinks he’s got all the answers.

Graham Walker just stopped by to get a book signed for Grace’s biggest fan, his niece, and wish Grace a Merry Christmas—why not? But he soon finds himself troubleshooting her dilemma. He’s got a Range Rover that can plow through a hundred-year Nor’easter. He’s even headed home to Philly. Trouble is, Grace's and his past is a disaster, something he has no intention of reliving while driving through a winter storm, no matter how much he once loved her. And maybe still does.

Bad weather has a way of bringing out the best and the worst in people, and when a run in with some deer antlers leads them to a forced stop in Mirror Lake, Connecticut, anything can happen, naughty or nice. Maybe a bit of enforced alone time and some Christmas magic can be just what it takes for them to face their past—and each other—once and for all.

My Review
I’m not the biggest fan of second chance romances, but this novella had me rooting for the couple. The reasons they got divorced two years ago was understandable and forgivable on both sides. After the changes they went through during their lives apart, I’m pretty sure there will be a greater chance of them staying together the second time around. A lovely Christmas read.

I give this book four out of five book shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased this book from Amazon UK.


  1. Thanks, Cathy. Short and to the point.

  2. I love second chance romance. I think cos there is usually some back story that makes the characters more rounded. And the what-if aspects. Ms Liasson's writing was also very enjoyable to read.

  3. I love second chances and Christmas so sounds pretty perfect for me!


I love reading your comments.
