My Review:
3.5 stars — OK, I was unprepared for the *real* magical part to this story, and it kind of threw me off.  I was expecting a straight contemporary romance, and I got something a bit more whimsical than that.  So I was as skeptical as Molly was about her legacy, and I think that tainted my read a bit.  I still really enjoyed a lot of this short story, but because it was a short story it suffered from the usual — fast romance, not enough time to get to know characters, that sort of thing.  I didn’t really get a chance to feel that chemistry — though that kiss under the mistletoe??  Pure magic.

Did really love the reindeer though….but what’s not to love about reindeer?
