Though Barbara Brutt’s novella, Take a Right at the Mistletoe, is filled with the cheer of the holidays, it’s also a warm, upbeat romance that’s perfect any time of the year. And it’s available now.
Each and every holiday season at Vienna’s Christmas market, Matilda bakes confections for holiday tourists and quirky locals alike. Looking to escape the market drama, she sets her heart on culinary school.
Dylan has come to Vienna and the market to recover from a career-upending mistake and to unearth new inspiration. But when he nitpicks Matilda’s marzipan, she hears fighting words and perhaps the key to her culinary school application. They strike a deal: he’ll taste test and she’ll show him around Vienna. With each new pastry experiment and Viennese adventure, their relationship sweetens.
But their relationship doesn’t seem written into life’s cookbook. Dylan can’t stay in Vienna, and Matilda has to follow her dreams, so it seems some ingredients just don’t belong together. And yet, their hearts have already committed. Will a Christmas filled with marzipan and mistletoe give them both what they want the most?
In this case, it’s in case we missed it, and we did! We didn’t post this wonderful review from Fizzy Pop Collection when it became available so we’re rectifying that now.
I think for a debut novel Brutt brings so very much to the table. I am excited to see where her career takes her and I strongly urge everyone to throw some caution to the wind and nab this book. Read it for the breezy don’t-over-think-it book that it is and you absolutely will not be disappointed.

Today is the book birthday for a new contemporary romance!
Life post-graduation was supposed to see the launch of paisley-loving Jadyn’s art career, or at least an art gallery showing one of her watercolor paintings. Instead, this Pittsburgh native is locked into a low-paying, buttoned-up consultant position with an impossible boss. When another colleague is dismissed, Jadyn inherits extra workload, including the company’s biggest client. If she loses him, she’s fired.
Jadyn people-pleases her way through life, resulting in extra work opportunities and a community classroom of art students. But when two guys appear on her doorstep, she just might not be able to people-please her way out of this love triangle. At the end of the day, she can’t please everyone.
Then, because of a small spending problem, Jadyn is evicted from her apartment, and she must move in with her know-it-all sister. Jadyn needs to decide between a job transfer that would place her near her love interest, or a full-time art career with all its risks.
Stretched like canvas between responsibility and dreams, she must choose. Will practicality always win?
First-time author, Barbara Brutts, is excited about her cover (as are we), and she’s hosting an online Cover Reveal Party at Facebook. There will be games, prizes, and lots of compliments about the cover. <—- That’s where you come in!
