My review of The Mistletoe Pact by Jo Lovett
I had seen The Mistletoe Pact mentioned a few times on Twitter but had put of requesting it until this morning, was approved and then noticed it was published today and also due to be archived on NetGalley today too (1st October 2021)
Knowing it was going to be archived tonight, I thought I would just read a few pages and started reading it at 4:00 in the afternoon, couldn’t put it down and 7 hours later I had finished it.
I did skip read some of the back stories so as to finish it before it was archived but it was still a nice, simple easy to read and get in to book with characters you can really warm to.
I would describe it as more of a lovely little heart-warming story than a book, very pleasant, easy reading and enjoyable.
The Mistletoe Pact by Jo Lovett is probably the 4th or 5th Bookouture book I’ve received from NetGalley now – a big thank you to both of them and of course Jo Lovett

Two single thirty-year-olds. One marriage pact. And a night in Vegas that’s about to change everything…
On Christmas Eve eight years ago Evie and Dan made a pact: if they weren’t married by thirty, they were going to marry each other. Of course, neither of them took it seriously, even if Dan has always been mesmerised by Evie’s beautiful smile, and Evie has always fancied Dan, her best-friend’s brother.
But then “it” happens. They wake up on Christmas Eve, the night before Evie’s thirtieth birthday in Vegas… married. In a honeymoon suite filled with hundreds of heart-shaped pillows, they realise too late what they’ve done – just like Ross and Rachel.
Surely if they just get a quickie divorce, they can go back to the way things used to be, right? If it wasn’t for the alcohol and Susan-with-the-huge-beehive-hairdo who just wouldn’t take no for an answer, none of this would have happened. They can just go back to being friends.
Except moving on is easier said than done when you’ve secretly loved each other forever… but if one of them doesn’t admit that, what happens to their friendship? If they don’t get together this time, what happens to the pact? Are they really ready to let it go for good?
Fall in love this Christmas with this feel-good story about love and second chances. Fans of One Day in December, This Time Next Year and Beth O’Leary will adore The Mistletoe Pact.
