Lucy Bright has finally become the swan. Her life has been spent as the outsider looking in and she didn’t know where she fit. Finally, finally, things are looking up. Lucy struggled to get her degree and land a real job – one with a future. Working there, she literally ran into the boss and as they say, one thing led to another and now they’re engaged. Truly a Cinderella story, right?

However, she has a meeting with their wedding “designer” and needs a file from her fiancé’s office. The file she found wasn’t one she was ever supposed to see and she discovers that she was part of something she never intended and that it wasn’t a fairy tale at all but a nightmare.

Running from her life, she finds herself in a department store and dressed as an elf. Once again, she literally runs into the boss. This time, though, is there a chance at the fairy tale?

Liz Fielding has created a really sweet Christmas tale with a twist. I won’t tell you what the twist was because that would give something away but this love-at-first sight tale doesn’t disappoint. I enjoyed the scenes set by the author. Based on the vivid imagery she created, I could easily create the grotto in the department store or the couple eating hot dogs in the snow. Nathaniel Hart became a wonderfully protective hero but one who understood that his heroine needed to find her own strength and way.

Mistletoe and the Lost Stiletto is truly an entertaining book to curl up with in front of the fire on a cold winter day and certainly one to help you if your Christmas spirit isn’t where it should be.
