The Trouble with Mistletoe

A Heartbreaker Bay Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


(A standalone Heartbreaker Bay novel)

If she has her way . . .

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her . . .

He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.

Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him . . .

Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice . . .

Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish—and let the mistletoe do its work . . .

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 05, 2016 – Fans of Shalvis's Sweet Little Lies will surely want to pick up her second Heartbreaker Bay contemporary, which is also very accessible to new readers. The series's cuddliness factor is amped up to 11 with redheaded Willa Davis and her San Francisco pet store, South Bark Mutt Shop. Willa's single and happy that way; she gets her daily dose of love from half a dozen eight-week-old golden retriever pups and the other lost animal souls she tends. Then handsome Keane Winters, a man from her past, shows up with Petunia, a Siamese cat he's nicknamed Pita because she's a pain in the ass. Pita is his great-aunt's pet, and he needs all the cat counseling he can get, but Willa, Christmas spirit notwithstanding, would just as soon he seek it elsewhere. Willa's a gem, Keane's a hunk tool belt and all and the two spar as only Shalvis's characters can, fighting a losing battle against the powers of mutual attraction and the holiday season.

Trouble finds me

This is book # 2 in the Heartbreaker Bay series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in the order intended.

Keane & Willa have a past. Not a good one, nothing worth remembering. So why is Willa so mad that Keane doesn't remember?

Willa is surrounded by friends as her family now. She makes her own way in the world. Now, a sexy piece of her past has bulldozed his way back into her life. Can they learn to forgive and move on?

This is such an amazing series. The characters are deep, the sexy scenes are HOT, and the friendships are forever. I am truly impressed and eagerly awaiting the next book.

Love this Series!!

Willa had a rough childhood. As the owner of South Bark Mutt Shop, she loves her animals and her friends. Those things are important to her and they always stood by her. Keane Winters walks back into her life. The boy who stood her up all those year ago in high school and he didn't even remember her. Keane didn't have the best childhood either. Something he has in common with Willa. I loved the sparks between these two and each of them figuring out that they can love and depend on each other for the long haul. Add the spice of one tempermental cat and some nosey but loving friends and this book had me laughing through the entire story! Can't wait for the next one!!

Such a fun read!

4 1/2 STARS!

An adorably fun read!

Pet shop owner Willa Davis does favors for others every day. She loves her friends, she loves her pet clients, her neighbors, etc. ... but when a steamy hot man comes knocking on her door before the shop is even open, Willa can't stand the sight of him!

Keane Winters has just been handed his great-aunt's demon spawn of a cat and doesn't have a clue what to do with her. He begs Willa for help because he needs her to pet sit for him. He can't understand why this gorgeous creature seems to be mad at him when he's never even met her before!

Willa has to admit that Keane seems to be a different person than that year in high school ... she just doesn't know if she can trust her heart to him again.
