But her plans for a quiet Christmas in the country are quickly dashed. Peggy the pregnant beagle and Malcolm the ancient Great Dane seem determined to keep her up all night.

About the Author
Natalie Cox is a lifelong fan of romantic comedy, and decided to write her own when she finally ran out of stuff to read. She is also a big fan of dogs, and wrote this book with an ancient chocolate labrador panting by her side. Together, they placed second in the Dog-And-Owner-Most-Alike Competition at their local county show, and no doubt would have taken home the trophy if they'd worn matching collars. Sadly, the day she received the publication offer for this book, Natalie's canine muse went to that great dog park in the sky. But she has since adopted a Great Dane puppy, who makes up in brawn what she lacks in brains. Natalie divides her time between London and the Brecon Beacons in Wales.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book has gone to the dogs (in a good way). If you are a dog lover, than, you will really enjoy this book. It features all types and sizes of dogs. Each one will melt your heart. Charlie is so adorable. Although, she needs to brush up on her people skills. Her first impression meeting Cal was not a great one. Yet, it was memorable. She called him "Bovine Cal" and indicated that he was into cows. Hey, not judging. However, that is not Cal's "thing". He treats cows among other animals. Luckily, for Charlie the dogs don't mind her lack of refinement. Another great thing about this book, besides the dogs is the humor. Laughter is just what the doctor ordered. I enjoy a good laugh. Yet, this book delivered on more than just one laugh. It delivered on laughter throughout the whole book. Mutts and Mistletoe is the perfect gift for the dog lover in your life.
