Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 295 - Mistletoe Miracles by Jodi Thomas, Searching for the Fleet by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Mistletoe Miracles (Ransom Canyon)Mistletoe Miracles by Jodi Thomas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

While this is part of a series it reads like a stand alone. Previous characters are mentioned but not featured. This skips between three different sets of characters as they work their way to a HEA. If you took each one it is the size of a novella. Put together they make a book. Thomas has taken several familiar tropes and made interesting stories with their own unique flavor. I loved the Johnson's - the trope mistaken identity. The Holloway trope a marriage of convince. Last but not least Jaxon O’Grady is the wounded hero who is hiding out. Each set have their own problems and come to their HEA using their own solution. Great Christmas read.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

Searching for the Fleet: A Diving NovelSearching for the Fleet: A Diving Novel by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I love the Diving Novels and had Searching for the Fleet on preorder. I put it at the top of my TBR list and started it as soon as it showed up on my Kindle. Then I started reading and found that the first part was the novella Dix which I had already purchased and read. It went downhill from there. About half way through there was another novella I had purchased and read. While I liked both Coop and Yash I found much of their interaction and search boring. This did finish the story leaving both Coop and Yash with a new goal. I guess a good ending with some excitement at the end but still a disappointing story to end the series.
