Four decades ago in San Francisco, Allen Walter, CEO of Walter Industries, tells Jack Sullivan that his pocket planner electronic gizmo is a great product but the firm needs a sure shot like pet rocks after losing a lot of money on other great products over the past year. Disappointed Jack knows he and his partners over the last ten years (Howie Miller and Larry Buelton) need a Christmas miracle as they have 24 hours to prove to Allen that Pocket Planner can sell.

The three partners head to Union Square to come up with an idea when internationally famous fashion model Mary Ferrer finishes her final shoot there before retiring. Jack and Mary cannot stop staring at each other. Whereas she decides to take one last chance on love, he feels fate has intervened as he not only found his Angel he found the means of proving pocket planner is a sexy gizmo.

Kissing Under the Mistletoe is a delightful prequel to the Sullivan family romances as readers meet the brilliant patriarch in person and not through the memories of his family as the series does. The entertaining storyline is very linear with no twists, but showcases the love that started it all.
