Under the Mistle-tome by Sammi Cee

We return to Christmas Falls for another sweet romance Under The Mistle-tome... 

From the blurb:

Hoping to give his young daughter, Holly, the joyful childhood he had, Trevor moves back to the one place he’s always considered home—Christmas Falls.

As happy as he is to be back in the festive atmosphere of the small charming town, it’s nothing compared to how excited he is to spend time with his best friend, Trey.

Taking over the family bookstore in the town he grew up in was all Trey had ever wanted. Until Trevor walked back into his life, proving his childhood crush had never completely faded.

And Trevor’s daughter? Well, the adorable girl quickly claims a piece of Trey’s heart.

With the help of a little holiday magic, these two men and one very determined little girl may get exactly what they need—a family.

Christmas Falls is a multi-author M/M romance series set in a small town that thrives on enough holiday charm to rival any Hallmark movie.

Heather's Review:

Under The Mistle-tome was a sweet second chance romance between childhood besties who had lost touch and reconnected when Trevor moves back to his childhood town - Christmas Falls... with his adorable young daughter in tow!

This book was hallmark sweet with just a little spice and a very nice family who welcomed Trevor and Holly home for the holidays and for good...

This book was short and sweet, but it tied up all the loose ends and made me smile, something every good holiday story should.

Angel's Review:
I haven't read too many of Sammi's books, the ones I have read though I have really enjoyed. Sammi's got a way with words, and her writing immediately draws you in, so much so, you get extremely invested into the happiness of the characters. I absolutely adore Holly-Berry, she is so adorable and knows how to get people wrapped around her fingers. That and she's also good at playing matchmaker. Her character was so cute and brought such a fantastic childlike glee and an innocent and adorable perspective of the holidays. 

Trey and Trevor were dubbed the Dynamic Duo, (along with other names) when they were younger,they were best friends. When Trevor's parents moved, Trevor and Trey fell out of touch with each other. Now that Trevor's back in Christmas Falls they have a lot of catching up to do. 

Trevor's character is a very wholesome one, he wasn't expecting to be a dad as soon as he did, but he's always wanted kids. He's such a good dad to Holly, and he's trying his best to make sure she has good long lasting memories of Christmas Falls just like he has. I absolutely adore how as soon as they arrived in the quaint small town he instantly went to find Trey. I thought their relationship developed really nicely, they took their time to reconnect all the while both of their feelings were smoldering after years of being smothered. 

Trey's character was quite possibly my favorite, mainly because he owns and runs his very own bookstore. Spending all day with books sounds like a dream! When Trevor arrives back in town with Holly, he's shocked but also very excited to have his best friend back in his life. With Trevor and his daughter being around, Tre learns how to step away from his work, and realizes that spending time with those he loves is more important than being a workaholic. 

This book was written extraordinarily well! The background this book takes place in was so lovely! A bookstore and descriptions of all the joys Christmas Falls has to offer was the perfect place settings. As I mentioned above all of the characters played a really magical part in this story, and each and every one made this story more impactful. I have always loved the found family aspect and it was executed and described greatly.  Overall, a terrific holiday romance story, with Greenwich, real trees, books, friends to lovers, found family, and of course plenty of love.
