Curl up with this completely enchanting winter romance! A stunning festive read about the joy of Christmas with family, second chances, and finding love under the falling snow. Get cozy and keep some tissues on hand. You’re in for a truly magical story…
White Oaks Inn has always been at the heart of Christmas celebrations for Scarlett Bailey and her family. Her adored gran has owned the rambling, old-fashioned hotel, filled with the scent of cinnamon and chocolate, since Scarlett was a little girl. But now her gran’s home is under threat. And it looks like it could be the Baileys’ last Christmas together there…
Over the holiday season, amidst much-loved festive traditions of baking cookies and decorating the tree, Scarlett throws herself into saving the hotel. When she hears that Charlie Bryant, a handsome, successful property developer, is spending December in Silver Falls, Scarlett is hopeful he might be the answer to their problems.
When they meet, sparks fly between impulsive Scarlett and business-like Charlie – as they both have very different ideas for the future of White Oaks. Scarlett is determined to show him how much White Oaks Inn means to her family and the guests who return there every year and, as they spend more time together, she begins to realize there is more to Charlie than his serious appearance…
But Charlie is struggling with a secret from his own past. Will he be able to face it, or will it stop him from truly opening up and getting close to anyone? And can Scarlett share the true meaning of Christmas with him and save her gran’s beloved hotel along the way?
Embrace the wonder of Christmas in this gorgeous novel about living for the moment and finding love when you least expect it. Christmas at Silver Falls is the perfect festive indulgence for fans of Debbie Macomber, Susan Mallery and Sheila Roberts.
Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour and my copy of this book via netgalley. I love a Christmas book and Jenny Hale has written some of the best of them.
Scarlett Bailey is looking forward to Christmas in Silver Falls with her family. Her Grandma owns White Oak Inn on the mountain. Her feelings are bittersweet though because after christmas the family is telling Gran that they need to sell the Inn because it’s not making any money. Scarlett was instantly likeable. She’s a lovely girl who wants nothing more than to make everyone happy.
Charles Bryant, a property developer, has recently moved to Silver Falls. Scarlett thinks he might be the answer she needs for the Inn. Charles or Charlie is going through a lot and he has built a hell of a lot of walls around himself.
Jenny has written a gorgeous location with such likeable characters. I loved the town of Silver Falls. The Coffee shop, The Bar all sound like places I would love to hang out. I also loved the town people. Loretta sounds like such a sweetheart and Preston sounds dreamy.
I loved the Christmas party that the Bailey’s threw. It sounded like SO much fun! This story gave me a real hankering for all the festive drinks. From Peppermint hot chocolate to mulled cider. Oh man, I want them all!
This is a gorgeous festive romance that is perfect for the season. I’d love nothing more than to curl up with a hot chocolate and read this story all over again!
