ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Christmas Angels
Author: Nancy Naigle
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Genre: Contemporary Christmas
Release Date: October 15, 2019
A heartwarming Christmas story filled with the magic and miracles of the holiday season by USA Today Bestselling author, Nancy Naigle.
Growing up, Liz Westmoreland dreamed of taking over her grandparents’ inn located in the small mountain town of Antler Creek only for it to be sold before she ever got the chance. While browsing the internet, she stumbles upon a listing for what looks to be the picturesque inn and it’s set to go to auction. Liz places a bid, and by a miracle, wins the auction. But when she gets there, she finds the property in significant disrepair.
When Matt Hardy narrowly lost the inn and property that butted his land, he just hoped it wasn’t another city slicker coming to make matters worse after the previous owners gutted the place for an art gallery. But the minute he recognized the sweet, freckle-faced girl from his childhood and heard her plans to reopen the inn, he jumps at the chance to help his childhood crush restore a place where he made so many fond memories.
While working on repairs, Liz and Matt discover her grandmother’s collection of angels in one of the cabins. When the angels start mysteriously showing up all over the inn, she begins to look at them as reassurance—that restoring the inn is what she’s meant to do. But when an accident leaves Liz feeling like she made a mistake, will Matt—and the residents of Antler Creek—be able to show Liz that she’s found a home? And possibly true love as well?
She scrolled down, zipping through the long inventory of homes being auctioned. She read through the list of requirements to bid. It was doable. Someone else’s misfortune could be her gain.
Even more excited with the possibility, she clicked back to the list of homes.
One of the houses caught her eye. She zoomed in.
More wishful thinking? Or could this one really be . . . ?
She double-clicked on the image and expanded the photo.
There was no mistaking that front door. A zing raced from her heart to her fingers as she zoomed in on the next picture. Someone had hand-carved that door for them in exchange for something. Pop was always bartering one thing or another. She was thirteen the summer he installed it.
The place was overgrown and definitely in need of some TLC, but that was easy enough to fix. She gulped back emotion as the familiar sight brought memories rushing back more clearly than ever. From the aerial view she could see that the two cabins, and the old barn out back were still there too.
Dan called out a hello. “I thought I’d beat you here. You’re home early.” He’d let himself in through the door from the garage.
“Yeah.” She was only half listening as her eyes landed on the sale date. Tomorrow? If she was going to make her dream come true, she had a lot of work to do in a hurry.
“My clients rescheduled for tomorrow because of the rain, but I brought barbecue anyway.”
“Thanks. That sounds good.” Liz stood from her chair, and went to help him. “What do you know about buying properties at auction?”
“You mean besides the fact you get what you pay for and there are usually a ton of problems with them?” He started unpacking food from a large paper sack. “Or that you have to plan in advance if you really want to jump in on an auction property.” He neatly lined up napkins next to plasticware next to sauce packets. “You need all your ducks in a row. And if you want to buy a place you should work through me. Rain or shine, unlike my clients this afternoon who canceled because of the rain. I hate rain.”
He could bellyache about the rain all he wanted, but nothing was going to dampen her mood. “Ducks happen to love this weather,” Liz said with a playful flap of her arms. “And I happen to think it’s a perfect day for getting my ducks in a row.”
