Finding your soul mate is a dream Adeline Hamilton thought was just that … a dream. After several failed relationships, she realizes she’s not capable of falling in love. The only passion she’s ever had is teaching U.S. History at the local high school.
A week before Christmas, Adeline is all set for her best friend’s wedding, even though she dreads having to go to it alone. But when she’s given a Christmas wish that could change her future forever, she’s whisked away to the past, to a completely different place and time. It’s also when she meets him, William Blair, the man who steals her heart.
As their relationship grows, Adeline realizes that true love does exist. What she doesn’t know is that her wish can’t last forever, that soon she’ll have to leave the past behind. Will Adeline and William find their way back to each other? Or will their love have to stay where it all began . . . in 1865? With mistletoe and Christmas magic, anything’s possible.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 Review by Kristie K
A touch of Christmas magic like only L.P. Dover can deliver, this is a truly sweet love story perfect for the holidays…
Adeline Hamilton has a deep love for history, especially her own family history that is so rich in her hometown. Following her deep appreciation for the subject, Adeline even teaches history at the local high school, hoping to pass on her love for it to the next generation. Her belief in love is not as solid, since she is the last of her friends to remain single with the upcoming wedding of her best friend. On the eve of the wedding, Adeline finds herself whisked away to the past, thrust into a different world where everything is different. While living history in 1865, she meets the man of her dreams…and falls head over heels in love. When her dream comes to an end, and she returns to her own time, the feeling of loss is overwhelming. Will Adeline find love again with the man of her dreams?
Holy Christmas time travel, Batman!! This was such an amazing story of love, loss, and the power of Christmas magic. I absolutely loved every word, every paragraph, every chapter of this book! L.P. Dover takes you on a wonderful journey through the past and the present, and demonstrates just how enduring love truly is. Something that can stand the test of time, and endure through it all. An incredible and unique storyline and plot, executed with precision, heart, and so much love. This book truly takes you away. The characters are awesome. Each one their own person, with personality, heart, and soul to rival any flesh and blood person I know. Ms. Dover has created a classic tale of Christmas love and magic that will endure for years to come.
History, mystery and the magic of mistletoe
A little history, a bit of mystery and the magic of mistletoe. This delightful story ties together the past and the present in a big bow of heartfelt Christmas spirit and joy of the season.
The imagery of the author’s writing is breathtaking! Her perfectly crafted story created such a crisp mental image of visual pageantry that I felt like I was time traveling. It Must’ve Been the Mistletoe has all the elements of the best Hallmark movies. The movie will forever live in my heart and evoke all of the best feelings of Christmas!
The Magic of Love and Mistletoe!
This book was so unique. Sweet contemporary, historical, with a healthy dose of Christmas magic thrown in.
Adeline has never been lucky in love so she focuses on being an awesome high school history teacher and helping her best friend get married. When an unbelievably realistic dream transports her back to the 1800s and has her meeting the love of her life, she starts to change her mind about love being for her. Adeline and William fall for each other in the 1800s but when the present shows up again, they have to find their way back to each other.
I read a lot of holiday stories around Christmastime and this one is so unlike anything I have ever read. I'm not a huge fan of historical romance but the periods of the book that took place in the past were so interesting and made me think that I might have to revisit my stance on not reading historicals. This book has me believing in the powerful magic of love and mistletoe. I am really in the mood for all things Christmas after reading this book!
