This is a sweet story about a second chance romance and a furry friend that blesses the life of a little girl. I really liked the characters in this story. All of them! Including the sweet little kittens and Harold. The setting of a cabin in the mountains and a small town gave the story a comfortable, homey feel. This is perfect for a quick Christmas read. I really enjoyed it!

MINTY”S KISS is a romance novella where you just know the end would be happy. The the real joy is to follow Molly, a divorced mother falling back in love with her childhood crush Nick, and her daughter Gracie, to whom this love seems like a threat to her sense of family, as they find their way the way to happiness. MINTY”S KISS is a story of renewal: It opens with mother and daughter looking for Harold, their seventeen-years-old cat, assuming “He’s out in the woods somewhere” only to find him dead at the base of the tree where Molly used to read as a child. By the end of the story, they discover a furry kitty under the porch, and Gracie names him Minty. So by Christmas morning, all is well with the world. “We’re all going to take care of one another.” Some romance stories are too sweet—this one is delightfully minty. Five stars.
