Misty Harbor Book #2
Author: Marcia Evanick
  • Paperback: 304 pages
  • Publisher: Zebra (October 1, 2002)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0821774247
  • ISBN-13: 978-0821774243

Welcome to Misty Harbor Maine! Life is a little different here - slower, calmer, a bit less hectic than you may be used to. But don't worry, you'll fit right in. Just pour yourself some eggnog, curl up by the fire and settle in for a long winter's night. Christmas is coming - and there's love in the air...

After she caught her live-in boyfriend in the arms of another woman, Dr. Sydney Fletcher packed up her life, moved to charming Misty Harbor - and quickly made an early New Year's resolution: No more falling in love. Period. But she's barely hung her stocking by the chimney with care when her resolve is sorely tested by the rugged charms of Erik Olsen. The handsome fisherman with the blue eyes is exactly the sort of entanglement Sydney has vowed to steer clear of. Still, when he asks her to come around now and then to tend to his ailing grandfather, it seems downright Scroogish to say no, especially when Erik promises to repay her kindness with a traditional Norwegian Christmas celebration - a promise sealed with a very merry kiss. Now, with the Christmas Eve Festival of Lights fast approaching, Sydney must decide if she's willing to take a chance and give Erik the most precious gift of all- her heart...


Christmas on Conrad Street is the second book in the Misty Harbor series.  After reading the first book in the series, I was anxious to read about the twin vikings, Erik and Gunnar.  In this book we get two romances for the price of one!

I loved the story between Erik and Sydney.  They were a perfect match for each other and I felt the chemistry between the two as soon as the met.  Their romance was sweet and caring.  I also loved how the author made sure to include the characters from the previous book and the characters from books to come in this series.  The writing was fun and the scene setups were cute. I actually felt like I was in Misty Harbor for Christmas.

The only drawback I had with this book is the story of Gunnar and Maggie. I felt that their romance was forced and we didn't get to see their relationship blossom like we did with Erik and Sydney.  I feel the author should have left their romance for another book in the series instead of trying to incorporate it into this one. 

Overall a quick and cute Christmas read for the holiday season.  Even though this is the second book in the series, the author does a wonderful job of letting the reader have this as a stand alone book.  Everything, including the characters relationships, are explained without the over abundance of details. 


Okay book, but it left me wanting more! 3 STARS
