Sub-Genre: Holiday, Contemporary Romance
Toby Kincaid loves being the junior librarian in his hometown of Sandy Lake, Ohio. He spends his days surrounded by books and chatting with the library patrons. He especially adores the head librarian, Mr. Miggles, who is kind, witty, knowlegable about everything, and hopelessly addicted to Christmas. Sean Miggles is also pretty cute—especially for an older guy who wears ties and suit pants every day.
But Sean keeps himself at a distance, and there’s a sadness about him that Toby can’t figure out. When Sean is accused of a crime he didn’t commit, he gives up without a fight. Toby realizes that he alone can save the library—and their head librarian.
Toby will need to uncover the darkness in Sean’s past and prove to him that he deserves a second chance at life and at love too. And while Christmas miracles are being handed out, maybe Toby will get his own dearest wish—to love and be loved by Mr. Miggles.
Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles by Eli Easton is a sweet and romantically told story that lived and breathed in my heart long after I finished reading it.
I’ve read several holiday themed books and this one is one of my favorites. As a reader, I really appreciated the strong physical and emotional chemistry these two men shared together and I LOVED the way they truly liked and respected one another.
The story is told by Toby’s point of view. Since Toby is a likeable and honorable man, it’s easy to rally behind him as relays the story of his evolving relationship between Mr. Miggles *Sean* and himself.
Between the romantic relationship and the strong friendship these two heroes share and the fast-paced storyline, Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles is one of those books I read in one sitting. I quickly found myself involved in the fast-paced storyline and the lives of these two amazing men. Though, this is definitely an uplifting tale, there are some bittersweet and sad moments that left tears in my eyes. There is also a mix of interesting secondary characters that really bring something special to the story too.
My favorite thing about this book is that I truly believed that Toby and Sean really loved AND liked one another. The way they communicated, the banter they had together and the strong love, admiration and respect they shared between them make Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles a story I’ll be reading again and again throughout the years.
