Love at Mistletoe Inn {Cindy Kirk} | #bookbloggers #netgalley #yearofweddings
Hope Prentiss didn't go to the Harmony High School senior prom. Instead, she and John Burke drove to Boise and got married. At eighteen. But when Hope panicked after saying “I do,” the mail-order preacher assured her he just wouldn't send in the paperwork. No forms, no marriage, no problem. Right?


Well . . .


Now, ten years later, Hope discovers that her prom-night wedding counted—and, as fate would have it, the jilted John Burke has just ridden back into town. And he’s staying with her Aunt Verna at the inn where she and Hope host weddings. Though Hope thinks she wants an annulment, a little time with John makes her think twice . . . and emotions between the more-or-less Mr. and Mrs. Burke reach a boiling point a soon as they get a moment alone.


With annulment out the window, Hope finds herself staring in the face of a divorce. But after spending some time with John and helping plan a Christmas wedding for a mystery couple, Hope begins to wonder if she really wants a divorce … or a real wedding of her own.


This was a quick read - less than one hour - but a sweet love story. It was easy to get into the story line and I found myself interested in the characters very quickly.

The ending was pretty predicitable, but it did not take away any from the story. I still found myself thinking that maybe the author would throw us off in some way, but was happy to see that it all turned out the way I was thinking it would.

This is the first in the Year of Weddings 2 series, but my first read in the series. I look forward to reading the others that will be published throughout the year.




Cindy Kirk is a lifelong Nebraska resident who started writing after taking a class at a local community college. But her interest in the written word started years before when she was in her teens. At sixteen she wrote in her diary, “I don’t know what I would do if I couldn't be a writer.”

Not until her daughter was heading off to college did Cindy return to her first love---writing. Unlike some writers, Cindy wasn't interested in newspaper or magazine articles, short stories or poetry. When she decided to start writing, she jumped feet first into book length fiction. She loves reading and writing romance because she believes in the power of love and in happily ever after. An incurable romantic, Cindy loves seeing her characters grow and learn from their mistakes and, in the process, achieve a happy ending.

She and her high school sweetheart husband live on an acreage with two cats…one of whom loves to sit next to the computer and supervise her writing.
