Review: The Matchmaker’s Mistletoe Mission by Jaci Burton

Celebrate the gift of love and the holiday season with a snowy Christmas wedding at the Bellini family vineyard.

Cover Design: Farjana Yasmin


Stranded at the Red Moss Vineyard a week before her best friend’s wedding, LA native and professional matchmaker Alice Weatherford is not pleased with her first trip to Oklahoma, or the epic snowstorm forcing her to stay. So much for Christmas cheer. What she needs is a project, something to distract her…and, oh, has she found one in neighboring rancher Clay Henry. Gorgeous, charming, and unlike any other man she’s ever met, finding the right woman for Clay should be easy….

Having grown up with the Bellini sisters, it’s no hardship for Clay to ride out the storm at their cozy family vineyard, especially since that means spending time with their savvy and smart houseguest. But despite Alice’s best efforts, he’s not the least bit interested in her matchmaking….

Alice is the only woman Clay wants. Now he just has to convince the matchmaker herself to give love a chance.4

It is so weird that this is the first Jaci Burton book that I am reviewing on my blog as I have read so many of Burton’s books. Her bio says that she has written 85 books and I have definitely read over half of them. They are like candy. (laugh)

The Matchmaker’s Mistletoe Mission does not go as planned at all. One might think that elves were hiding on the ranch in Oklahoma causing mischief, but this is not that kind of romance (laugh). Instead mother nature piles on the snow and gives love a chance to sneak in the door before piling the snow in front of it.

A matchmaker gets more than she bargains for when chemistry gives her brain a wallop in the form of a good-looking and considerate cowboy. Burton always provides an alpha male to sweep the ladies off their feet and this time is no different. Alice has no idea what has hit her and it is fun to watch. 

Burton gives us a delightful holiday romance while giving us crumbs for the kickoff to her new series “Boots and Bouquets”…I can already see the popcorn moments ahead. I cannot wait!

I got this book from my library. I love my local library and you should check out yours too. Request LGBTQ+ books and they will stock them! #ebooksforall
