I started reading this new Christmas read I discovered while toodling around on my Kindle. While it wasn’t one I had planned on reading for this Christmas, the cover drew my eye, which of course led to reading!
Synopsis ~ Mistletoe at Moonglow by Deborah Garner
The small, old western town of Timberton, Montana, has not been the same since resident chef and artist Mist brought her unique, new age flavor to the area. When guests arrive at the Timberton Hotel for the holidays, they bring worries, fears and broken hearts, unaware that Mist has a way of working magic in people’s lives. Will old-fashioned time spent together, exquisite food, conversation and a snowball or two offer guests a chance to trade sadness for hope? One thing is certain: no matter how cold winter’s grip is on each guest, no one leaves town without a warmer heart.
A whisper of snowflakes brushed against Mist’s face as she stood in the doorway of the Timberton Hotel. It was a night like many other winter nights, the brisk air invigorating, a thin layer of snow coating the empty street, soft under the dim lights. The magical feeling of these evening reflections always warmed her heart. It was as if a Christmas card had come to life and she’d stepped into a peaceful scene that had been only paper a moment before.
Clara followed, smiling at Mist and apologizing for her casual dress. “I was just about to go to sleep when this young man knocked on my door and invited me to play a game of…I believe he called it ‘Stupid Fish.'”

I would totally keep reading. I love the descriptive writing in that intro. Thanks for sharing this book with us!
I would definitely keep reading! That beginning especially is lovely.
Oh yes! Your intro and teaser drew me right on. I didn’t get to any of my Christmas reads like I wanted to this year. I’m so bummed. I may have to do a Christmas in July.
Fun teaser! And the first chapter snippet sounds very Christmasy! Hope it’s a good one…
Sounds like a good read for the season. 🙂
Thanks for visiting my blog earlier!
Ooh sounds like an intriguing book! I confess I’ve read like, erm, two christmas stories of ever?!? bahah. I’m really terrible about being festive. I hope you enjoyed this one!
I figured it was time to get in the season considering every time I heard a Christmas song on the radio I’d change channels and was watching Snapped and every other true crime/forensic files/cold case type shows that were on TV!
