About the Book
Krista Galloway is not a fan of Christmas. After her rough childhood in multiple foster homes, the holiday season just brings too many bad memories to the surface. But when she accepts a job as a city manager in the mountain town of Winter Hill, Washington, Christmas is part of the deal. The small town is famous for its Christmasville celebration, something that the city manager . . . well, manages.
As she tries to make her tiny new apartment feel like home for her and her eight-year-old daughter, Emily, Krista begins to wonder if this move was a mistake. She doesn’t always feel welcomed in the close-knit town, and Emily continually wonders, “Where’s the snow?” Can a friendly stranger and his family help restore Krista’s Christmas spirit before the big day?
Bestselling author Melody Carlson invites you to spend this holiday season in a town you’ll never forget–and never want to leave.
In My Opinion
Tis the season for Christmas reads to start appearing, and Melody Carlson kicks us off with another sweet contemporary novella to get us in the holiday spirit.
As Winter Hill’s Christmasville celebrations get underway, Krista’s slight grinch-like attitude contrasts to the excitement surrounding the festivities. Through her daughter and another family, Krista’s complacency toward Christmas begins to change.
Fans of Hallmark movies (right down to the snow falling at the first kiss at the end) will enjoy this hope-filled, small-town read.
