Misstletoe Mishaps is a marvelous collection of five Christian historical novellas. All are warm and welcoming, infusing the reader with the festive spirit. There are some very light-hearted, fun moments too. The stories are set in Scotland, Ireland and America, ranging from 1880 to 1959. This wonderful collection will warm your heart and leave you smiling.

Taken By Surprise by Stephanie Guerrero sees a very accident prone young Scottish lass cause havoc wherever she goes – often with hilarious results. When she finds herself in real trouble, she knows that praying to God is the only course of action. Her pioneering spirit sees her cross the Atlantic to America in 1912. This is a delightfully amusing tale.
Her Christmas Dream by Jo Huddleston is a warm tale about friendship and caring. Friends look out for each other. Being in tune with God’s heart and will is important. There are some huge hearts who help those who are less fortunate than themselves. It is a wonderful tale about life-long friends.
Kaetlyn’s Cup Of Christmas Cheer by Marilyn Turk is a charming tale of new beginnings and second chances as we follow three young people across the sea from Ireland to New York in search of a better life in 1910. America is the land of opportunity. Hard work will pay off. It is important to make time for God and to attend church. We all have a past. Some pasts are regretted. The novella is reminiscent of Downton Abbey with the camaraderie and rivalry among the servants. I was also reminded of Lady Mary’s relationship with Anna. This was a delightful tale of new opportunities.
