Audio Book Review: Mistletoe in Juneau by Dahlia Rose

Well, this was a delightful novel! It was full of Christmas cheer and a feeling of home for the main character, as well as a sense of belonging that had been missing in her life. I listened to the audio version of this story and the narrator did a great job, too!

Danni and Declan were wonderful characters. Danni needed a break from the high pressure lifestyle she had fallen into. Declan had been wounded both physically and emotionally years earlier. He was a strong man and had retreated to his hometown, a place where the stress of PTSD did not cause him as much anxiety as it used to.

I loved the interactions between Danni and Declan. They were truly made for each other and even though they grew closer during Danni’s visit, each was hesitant to take the next step, letting fear hold them back. This was definitely a satisfying and wholly romantic read, with a wonderful epilogue at the end.

The author did a great job of creating a community full of people who felt real to me as I listened to their stories. I really enjoyed both the main and many side characters and the town felt like a place that I could call home.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


A heartwarming holiday romance from Hallmark and USA Today bestselling author Dahlia Rose that’s perfect for fans of Rochelle Alers and Debbie Macomber.

Danni’s a social media influencer who’s way out of her element. She sort-of broke up with her boyfriend-slash-manager, and she escaped her fast-paced life in New York to spend Christmas with an old friend in Juneau, Alaska. Danni takes in the beauty of the scenery and the warmth of the community…and she’s drawn to the local sheriff.

Before Declan was an Alaskan state trooper, he was in the Army. An IED explosion cost him his leg…and his fiancée, who couldn’t deal with the injury. He knows Danni’s a city girl, while he loves the Alaskan wilderness. Could two very different people find what their hearts are looking for?
