About the book:
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?
Christmas Angels by Nancy Naigle is a holiday contemporary romance that would make a perfect Hallmark Christmas movie. This heartwarming and sweet story takes place in a charming small town and includes plenty of Christmas elements to bring the season to life.
As a child Liz Westmoreland had spent a lot of time visiting her grandparents in the small mountain town of Antler Creek where they owned an Inn. While Liz was growing up those visits were the favorite parts of her childhood and as she got older it became her dream to one day own and operate the Inn herself.
After years of saving Liz one night stumbles on an auction ending the next day of the property her grandparents had owned before passing. Taking a leap of faith Liz manages to win the auction but when she arrives in Antler Creek the state of the Inn worries her until the meets Matt Hardy who agrees to help Liz begin renovations.
Christmas Angels had everything I could wish for all wrapped into this wonderful Christmas story. The lovely small town was full of excellent secondary characters that all cared for one another and welcomed Liz with open arms. The romance was one that had a background to build upon and took it’s time building. There were fun activities, cute kids, a lovable dog with everyone coming together for the holiday, a bundle of fun from start to finish.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
