I really enjoyed this sweet story about a retired Army Colonel and a young entrepreneur in Upstate NY who find romance and comfort in one another's arms. Haley Jennings loves a challenge in business--she has started a co-op in her grandfather's old factory right during the Christmas rush, which would be a daunting task for the most focused among us. But then, a monkey wrench is thrown into her life--her brother has left his two young sons into her care.
With a five and a three year old in the back seat of her convertible, Haley must find time, food, and resources on a cold Thanksgiving night when her search lands her at a church meal, locking eyes with a handsome and mysterious man--Brett Stanton. Brett hides his pain by hiding from the world. He has lost family in the war and has shut himself off from relationships--until something about the beautiful lady and her two young wards tug at his heartstrings.
As a resident of upstate NY who has traversed these same small towns--Bolivar, Jamison, Wellsville, Olean. . . I found this book to be a delightful trip through my memories of beautiful countryside and warm-hearted people. This writer captures small town hospitality and the rugged, pull-together aspect of these communities. Her characters are believable and sympathetic, and their stories resonate in the heart.
Even though Christmas is past, the snow is still white on the ground, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this holiday happily ever after.

I loved His Mistletoe Family. Ms. Herne has written a beautiful Christmas story of love, faith, family, healing and second chances.
Tyler and Todd stole my heart. I fell in love with them from the moment I started reading. My heart hurt for them being orphaned at 5 & 3 years old, then being passed from one relative to the next.
Haley, the boys aunt and Brett touched my heart bt loving the boys, giving them a home and wanting to give them a wonderful Christmas. I'm happy that Haley and Brett fell in love. They will be able to have what they have longed for, Haley a stable family, Brett the second chance to be a father.
Merry Christmas to Derringer the hounddog who has two adorable boys to love!
