From “the king of Christmas fiction” (The New York Times), a complete set of bestselling author Richard Paul Evans’s three novels in the bestselling Mistletoe Collection: The Mistletoe Promise, The Mistletoe Inn, and The Mistletoe Secret.
In The Mistletoe Promise, Elise Dutton is alone, broken, and distrustful three years after her husband cheated on her and they ended up divorced. Then, one November day, a stranger approaches Elise in the mall food court with a proposition. For the next eight weeks—until Christmas day—he suggests they pretend to be a couple. The lonely Elise surprises herself by agreeing to the idea. But just as she begins to find joy again, her long-held secret threatens to unravel the emerging relationship…and she might not be the only one with secrets.
At just thirty-two, Kimberly Rossi, in The Mistletoe Inn, has had her heart broken more times than she wants to remember. Dreading another holiday alone, she signs up for The Mistletoe Retreat, a nine-day writing retreat in Burlington, Vermont to fulfill her dream. In one of her sessions Kimberly meets another aspiring writer, Zeke, an intelligent man with a wry wit. As Zeke helps her to discover why her books fail to live up to their potential she begins to wonder if he’s really talking more about her life than her literature. But as she grows closer to him, she realizes that Zeke has his own darkness, a past he’s unwilling to talk about.
Finally, in The Mistletoe Secret, twenty-nine-year-old Kelly Arrington is at a low point in life. Briefly married, her husband abandoned her before the birth of their stillborn child. Lonely and in mourning, she copes by starting an anonymous blog. She signs each of her deeply personal posts LBH, which only she knows stands not for her initials, but for “Last Breaking Heart.” Meanwhile, New York writer Tyler Richards is reading her posts. He finds himself falling for this anonymous blogger. Following a trail of clues LBH has inadvertently revealed, he tracks her down to the small town of Tribe, Alabama. He makes his way there, and begins the search for a Lisa, Lori, maybe a Luanne. Instead, he finds a woman named Kelly to help him track down the mysterious LBH.
