Review: "My Mistletoe Mix-Up" by Judy Corry

Probably my favorite "new to me" author that I've discovered this year is Judy Corry. She writes clean YA that's emotionally engaging and entertaining. When her Christmas novella My Mistletoe Mix-Up popped up as a Kindle freebie, I couldn't resist!

She was supposed to kiss her crush under the mistletoe. She didn't expect to kiss his bad-boy twin.

When Raven Rodgers finds out her longtime crush is back in town, she's convinced her bad luck with guys has finally changed. That is until she mistakenly kisses her crush's twin brother, Logan Carmichael, who has been her sworn enemy since childhood.

But it's been eighteen months since she last saw Logan, and he claims he's not the same guy she used to hate. When they're thrown together for a Christmas charity event, Logan seems determined to prove he's nicer than he used to be. But can a bad boy really change his ways enough to change her heart?

MY MISTLETOE MIX-UP is a standalone novella in The Ridgewater High series, a collection of simmering YA contemporary romances. If you like sweet romance with ballad-worthy chemistry, swoony kisses and endearing characters then you'll love Judy Corry's latest book. 

After the serious (but excellent) nature of book four in the Ridgewater High series, I was thankful to find that My Mistletoe Mix-Up is pure, unadulterated fun. It starts with a case of mistaken identity—Raven thinks Logan is really his twin brother Jace—and the fun continues from there!

It really plays out like a Hallmark movie (if Hallmark made teen movies): mistaken identity and fake relationship turned real are the two prominent tropes in this novella. It's just so fun, even though there are some serious aspects (Logan is a recovering alcoholic).

This book works as a stand-alone novel, but it's book five in the Ridgewater High series, and I do have to say I was a bit confused as to the timeline of everything ... where exactly it fit in with some of the other books (specifically books three and four)—maybe they were all happening concurrently? Anyway, that's not a major issue, and it certainly won't bother anyone who hasn't read the other books. Overall, I really enjoyed this quick Christmas read! 4 stars.

Buy the book.
Read my reviews of the other Ridgewater High novels: Meet Me There (4 stars), Don't Forget Me (3-1/2 stars), It Was Always You (4-1/2 stars), and My Second Chance (4 stars).

Judy Corry has been addicted to love stories for as long as she can remember. She reads and writes YA & Clean Contemporary Romance because she can't get enough of the feeling of falling in love. She graduated from Southern Utah University in an area that has nothing to do with writing. Some of her favorite things are chick flicks, singing, and playing the piano. She believes in swoon-worthy kisses and happily ever afters.

Judy met her soul mate while in high school, and married him a few years later. She and her husband are raising four beautiful and crazy children in Southern Utah.
