Personal Rating : 4.5/5 ⭐

Hi friends!  Today’s my tour stop on the Mistletoe and the Mouse blog tour by Rachel’s Random Resources, and I’ll be reviewing the book as well. If you’re a lover of all things DISNEY, I recommend picking this book up ASAP :’)

Can a magical Christmas melt a frozen heart?

Join Belle and James as they visit Mickey Mouse for a sparkling holiday season at Disneyland Paris.

Belle has been numb since her mother died, and she can’t face Christmas at home without her. Instead she books a surprise holiday to her “happy place” – the Magic Kingdom. But her boyfriend James has problems of his own. He doesn’t “do Disney” and what will his mother think of him missing their family Christmas to go to Disneyland with Belle?

A festive romance with a sprinkling of Pixie Dust.

Can anything get better than having Disneyland, Christmas and Romance all together in a book? I THINK NOT! I’ve been obsessed with Disney since… forever, so I’m really glad that I got the chance to review this gem of a book. Many thanks to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for introducing me to the best kind of stories! 

Mistletoe and the Mouse was the sweetest book ever, and had heart-touching moments through and through. It’s very hard to make readers empathize with the grief that characters feel in a short period time, , the author of Mistletoe and the Mouse managed to make the emotions that Belle felt alive through her words perfectly. My favorite thing about the book was how the story transported me to Belle and James’ trip to Disneyland – I have to thank the atmospheric vibe of the book for that! I literally felt as if I was travelling with the characters and seeing their story unfold in front of me. 😍

It was also very refreshing to read a book where the couple was already together for a long period of time, instead of seeing them navigating their way through a new relationship. I really looked forward to see how James’ and Belle’s time Disneyland would turn out, seeing how James’ wasn’t really enthusiastic about the trip. Their relationship took a bumpy turn, but I loved how everything worked out in the end!

Belle’s growth was remarkable throughout the story as well. Seeing how her dynamic/equation changed with James’ mom was definitely on the highlights of Mistletoe and The Mouse! In a little over a hundred pages, the story represented two very important lessons : Never judge a book by its cover, and Disney is NOT ONLY for Kids. :’) Definitely recommend if you’re looking for a quick, touching read this festive season! 💕

Author Bio –

Elsa Simonetti was born in the same year as Walt Disney World, but many miles away in the north of England. Her earliest Disney memory is crying during Bambi at the Saturday morning cinema club! It wasn’t until her own children were small that her husband introduced her to the magic of Disneyland Paris, and since then she has become obsessed, proving Walt Disney’s own belief that “Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age and dreams are forever”. That was the seed of this story – that Disneyland is not just for children, but for anyone who is young at heart.

Elsa also writes romantic women’s fiction under the name of Liz Taylorson

    Oh, I definitely need this one! Mine is a Disneyland-loving family and we’re sorely missing it this year. And reading about an established couple sounds like a lot of fun!
