Book Description:

For Mary Sullivan Christmas is, and always has been, about family. And this year is no different. As she awaits the arrival of her eight children and their partners at the cottage in Lake Tahoe, she hangs the ornaments that they made for her over the years. Each decoration brings with it a tide of memories, all of which she holds dear to her heart. 

But when she comes across the oldest ornament, the one her beloved husband, Jack, gave her on their very first Christmas together, Mary is immediately swept back to the first days of their whirlwind romance, to the love that would be the foundation on which they built the family she is so proud to call her own. 

Join the Sullivans this Christmas for a story that explores the wonder of the holidays, the meaning of family and a love that transcends time.

Why I Can't Wait:

When I read a Bella Andre book, I feel like i'm going to my annual family gathering. It just feels like HOME to me. Do you ever get that feeling? When one of her books goes LIVE, I.DROP.EVERYTHING!

From the moment I read The Look of LoveI fell for all the family members of The Sullivan clan.  Each sibling found love in the most unexpected way and from one book to the other, we follow how this family grows. 

In Kissing Under the Mistletoe, Bella Andre brings us back to where it all started : Jack & Mary Sullivan's love story. I'm so excited that Bella is writing about their story. Mary gives the best advice. She has set the perfect example for their children. The Sullivans are all about LOVE & FAMILY. I don't usually read Christmas books in September, but The Sullivans are my exception ;) I think that this book is going to be an emotional roller coaster for me. Here goes another tissue box!!!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Bella Andre has always been a writer. Songs came first, and then non-fiction books, but as soon as she started writing her first romance novel, she knew she’d found her perfect career. Known for “sensual, empowered stories enveloped in heady romance” (Publishers Weekly) about sizzling alpha heroes and the strong women they’ll love forever, nearly all of her novels have appeared on Top 5 lists at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple and Kobo.

Her books have been Cosmopolitan Magazine ”Red Hot Reads” twice and have been translated into nine languages. Winner of the Award of Excellence, The Washington Post has called her “One of the top digital writers in America” and she has been featured by NPR, USA Today, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal. She has given the keynote speech at Book Expo America on her self-publishing success and has sold more than one million books.

If not behind her computer, you can find her reading her favorite authors, hiking, swimming or laughing. Married with two children, Bella splits her time between the Northern California wine country and a 100 year old log cabin in the Adirondacks.
