Lavinia Crowne was a complicated person. Learning there was a more to life than what money could buy. She was breaking free from her father's strict rules but still planning on taking the children to live with him. She was developing feelings for Henry while trying to discredit him and take custody of the children. There were several times I actually told her (out loud) to open her eyes and see what was right in front of her. I was tempted to check the last page, something I never do, to see if she changes. I didn't because this is where the author shines. Expertly crafting the story to melt my heart in the end.
The situation is difficult and very emotional. The children lost both of their parents in an accident. Their beloved uncle Henry is named their guardian in his brothers will. They've just met their mother's sister Lavinia and know nothing of her plan.
A few weeks spent together getting ready for Christmas bring the adults closer together. The children are smart and see the attraction between their aunt and uncle. Using mistletoe more than once and a little prompting, they finally get their wish. But that is not the end! There are still more touching moments and drama to be had.
I read this book twice before writing this review. It was time well spent. I'm sure it will become one of my regular Christmastime reads.
Oh Lavinia, Lavinia! I say that while shaking my head! At one point I had to message the author and tell her that Lavinia needed a "Come to Jesus" talk! My goodness that girl made me want to reach through the pages and shake her til her teeth rattled! Henry was much more understanding than I ever would be. He admired Lavinia for her stubbornness because he knew that she didn't have a leg to stand on to get the children. He was so patient in helping Lavinia understand that her grand schemes were just what her sister had escaped from and that the children would appreciate a more simpler way of life. I love when a book gets you so involved in the characters that you feel as if you are a part of the family. When I finished reading I truly missed Henry and Lavinia. Being thrown together to care for the children and with the help of the scheming trio, Henry and Lavinia's romance developed slowly and naturally. Their Mistletoe Matchmakers was a sweet Christmas read that will definitely help get you into the holiday spirit!
Lavinia is one character I can relate to, she's stubborn, determined, tenacious to a fault and goes after what she wants! She believes she has a strong case in being able to obtain guardianship of her sister's children and won't take no for an answer. Henry is just as determined to keep the children in his care and show Lavinia that a family is made up of love and affection more than the things riches can buy. As time goes by, she begins to admire his devotion and gentle nature that brings out the best in eight year old Alex, six year old Marcie and four year old Dot. As for the children, they add their own delightful personalities, fun and a little mischief thrown in the mix! I found this to be a warm & satisfying Christmas themed story full of love, faith, learning the more important things in life and ending in sweet romance to satisfy the heart.
