Magnolia Mistletoe An Edisto Christmas Novella By Lindsey Brackett


Hannah Calhoun knows what she wants for Christmas. But before she can become a full-fledged partner in her mother’s wedding planning business, she has to prove she can handle her own shortcomings.

Benjamin Townsend is an entrepreneur always looking out for the next big thing—and if hosting weddings on Edisto is it, he’s all in. Even if that does mean spending a lot of time with Hannah, whose world is way more full of happily ever after than his.

Once the magnolia and mistletoe are hung, will an Edisto Christmas be exactly the magic these two need?

My Thoughts...
Well lets see where to start. I like most people don't think that great authors should right novellas. Do to the fact that you are always left wanting more.
That being said. I really enjoyed this story and the characters  were great the setting was great and the romance was just right. But I was left wanting to read more story by Brackett.
I gave this 4 stars and I am hoping for some more books from her soon.
The Mary Reader received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are our own.


  1. I have never heard of this author. But I am like you I don't like a really good author to write short stories. I am left feeling sad that it ended so fast.

  2. Normally, I won't waste my money on a novella that takes me an hour to read. Why do they cost as much as a full length book?
