This is a very funny and entertaining novella ideal for a Christmas holidays read. It is a refreshing departure from the typical lesfic plot to see that the main characters are middle aged women scientists in a long term relationship. On a whim, they decide to spice up their sex life through a bet that happens around Christmas time. What follows is a series of witty dialogues, funny situations and hot scenes that entertains the reader till the end. Ms. Caldwell excels at creating a believable couple with their set routines, quirky behaviour and obsession to follow the scientific method but, at the same time, surrounded by strong love and beautiful intimacy. Skilfully written, this novella has it all for an entertaining holiday read. ‘Mistletoe Mishap’ goes straight to my recommended Christmas lesfic books list.
Overall, a funny and witty Christmas rom com. 4.5 stars.
