AS THE INN APPEARED on the crest at the end of the snowy drive, nestled in the folds of the gently rolling Vermont foothills, Molly Winslow actually laughed aloud. Her anticipation had been building ever since she turned off the main road. She’d soon spotted the hand-painted wooden sign, almost as big as her car, which featured a Victorian-style painting of the inn itself, done up in holiday glory.

 

FROM GOODREADS:

In this heartwarming, feel-good novel, a snowstorm brings a cast of very different characters together at a sleepy New England inn, just in time for Christmas—and maybe even in time for a Christmas miracle. 

A New England inn seems like the picture-perfect place to spend the holidays. But when a snowstorm shuts the roads and keeps them all inside, the guests find themselves worrying that this Christmas may not be exactly what they dreamed of.

Molly just needs to keep her head down and finish her latest book, but her writer’s block is crippling. The arrival of Marcus, a handsome widower with two young girls, is exactly the distraction she doesn’t need.

Hannah was hoping for a picturesque winter wedding, but her plans come crashing down when her fiancé calls everything off. She reconnects with her childhood friend, Luke, when he comes to check on his grandmother before the storm.

Jeanne and Tim don’t know how they’re going to keep the inn open another year—or how to bridge the distance between them in their marriage. With a flurry of unexpected guests, they’ll have to work together to fix all the problems that crop up. But will it be enough to rekindle their relationship?

As the characters’ stories intertwine, they start to find hope where they thought it had been lost. With faith, and a little bit of Christmas magic, the inn—and its inhabitants—might just make it through the holidays after all.

  1. Have a good weekend! My first line is from “Somewhere Beyond the Blue: Fun sixty-something romances” – the first one is “A TIME TO PUSH DAISIES” by Marion Ueckermann:

    “Caleb Blume shuffled outside onto the wooden deck of his posh Camps Bay apartment, feeling three decades older than his sixty-two years.”

  2. Happy Friday!
    Today on my blog I am sharing the first line from Sandra Byrd’s novel Lady of a Thousand Treasures. I’m LOVING this book. Currently, I am on chapter 10, so I will share the first line from that chapter.

    “I had no faith at all in the doctor who had been tending my uncle.”

    Hope you have a great day and a wonderful weekend! 🙂❤️📚

  3. Happy Friday! On my blog this week I shared Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst but I’m also currently reading Emerald Illusion by Jennifer Rodewald. I’m on chapter 12 so I’ll share the first line from there: “Clouds began to cloak the few stars that were determined to see light into the dreary hill country.” Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of reading!

  4. I am sharing from Eternity Between Us by Stephenia McGee. I’ll give you the first line from the third chapter:
    The sound intensified, a keening wail that knifed through her very bones and caused them to quiver.
    Great Civil War book!
