Episode 36 – The Mistletoe Promise

The Mistletoe Promise by Richard Paul Evans

Kait, Renata, and their returning guest Caitlin read The Mistletoe Promise by Richard Paul Evans and unanimously agreed: it’s not nearly as bad as The Christmas Sweater was! In fact we actually… kinda liked The Mistletoe Promise? We liked it almost as much as the heroine of this book likes sweet pork salads, which is a lot. Listen now to hear us learn what exactly a sweet pork salad is, plus an important moral lesson (but not the lesson we were expecting to learn).

Content warning: This book contains infant death, and so does our discussion of it.

Readers advisory: Here.
