2017 DSP Advent Stocking Stuffer Review: The Probability of Mistletoe by E.J. Russell

2017 DSP Advent Stocking Stuffer Review: The Probability of Mistletoe by E.J. Russell

Title: The Probability of Mistletoe

Author: E.J. Russell

Category: Holiday, Contemporary

Pages: 43
When software engineer Keith Trainor decides to start his own company, he knows exactly who he wants as his partner: Parker Mulvaney, his best friend from high school. But in the ten years since graduation, their contact has dwindled to nothing, and it’s all Keith’s fault. If he hadn’t tried to kiss Parker under the mistletoe at the winter formal their senior year, Parker wouldn’t have bolted. At their ten-year reunion, Keith intends to do everything in his geeky power to make amends.
Parker should have known that scheduling the reunion the day before Christmas Eve was a recipe for a headache of monster proportions. But when Keith sends a text that he’ll be attending, the evening doesn’t look so bleak. Can an unnecessary makeover, a nostalgic breakfast, an abortive shopping trip, and a whole lot of mistletoe culminate in a long-overdue first kiss?

3.75 Stars

After a failed attempt at a kiss under the Mistletoe, Keith left to attend college in California and has made a life for himself in Silicon Valley. It’s been 10 years and now he’s back for his high school reunion, and just maybe he’ll have another chance with Parker.

Keith and Parker were both sweet and likable and this was lovely second chances romance. I found the story to be somewhat rushed and I was left wanting more character development, but still an enjoyable and recommendable holiday story.
