A snowy small town.
A snow globe that grants wishes.
A love that’s meant to be.
Evergreen, Vermont is about to be in the rearview mirror of Allie Shaw’s vintage red pickup truck. It’s hard to say goodbye to her small town and her veterinarian practice, but she’s moving to Washington D.C., where her big-city-loving boyfriend lives.
Ever since Ryan Bellamy’s wife died, he hardly knows how to celebrate Christmas. He’s decided to take his daughter Zoe to Florida, and Evergreen is just a quick stop on the way to the airport. While they’re there, Zoe partakes in a local tradition, making a Christmas wish on the snow globe at the town diner.
But neither Allie’s nor Ryan’s Christmas goes as planned. They’ve checked their wish lists twice, and they didn’t say anything about meeting someone new…or about a fresh chance at love.
This magical, feel-good romance includes a free Hallmark recipe for Vermont Christmas Card Cookies.

This is probably going to be a staple in 2019 as I find less and less time to make larger reviews. Hope that is okay.

 

This is my first  time reading a Hallmark book. I was really curious and so since I was using the free 30 days scribd trail I decided to try one.

Christmas in Evergreen is one of my favorite Hallmark movies and so it was fun reading a familiar story and noting the differences as the author added dialogue, inner monologue and descriptions. I felt like I got to know the characters I loved a little bit more. I also enjoyed the epilogue as you get a glimpse into how things are going with them after the ending of the movie. Just a fun added bonus plus there is a cookie recipe!

I love Allie, Ryan and Zoe and all the people of Evergreen! I hope I get a chance some time to read the next Evergreen movie to book Letter to Santa! It has a lot of the same characters in it but a couple of new ones added and just as good and the first one!

I think these books will be great for Hallmark fanatics who want to relive their favorites but in a different format.

Watch the movie and read the book! 🙂

Don’t get your tinsel in a tangle...
It’s Christmastime in Cottonwood, Kentucky, and Sheriff Kenni Lowry is determined to keep the peace. Vivian Lowry, Kenni’s Mama, is having a Christmas-size hissy fit because Kenni plans to spend Christmas in Chicago with her Deputy Sheriff-turned-boyfriend Finn Vincent and his family.
Plus, the snowstorm of the century is headed right toward Cottonwood, leaving the residents in a frantic frenzy and potentially derailing Kenni’s Christmas plans with Finn.
If that’s not enough to dampen the Christmas spirit, the ghost of Kenni’s grandfather—the ex-sheriff—makes an appearance, and that means only one thing: there’s been a Christmas murder, and there’s a tinsel-wrapped victim at the center of it.
Relying on her Poppa more than ever, Kenni uses him as the Ghost of Christmas Past to help solve the murder, but will it be in time for her to save Christmas in Cottonwood and hop on her plane to meet Finn’s family?

TANGLED UP IN TINSEL by Tonya Kappes | A Henery Press Mystery. If you like one, you’ll probably like them all.

Also by this author: Fixin' To Die, Spies and Spells, Betting off dead, Get Witch or Die Trying, Southern Fried, Ax To Grind, Six Feet Under, Beaches, Bungalows, and Burglaries

I am a huge fan of the Kenni Lowry series and so this was a fun new installment surrounding Christmas. Kenni wants to visit Finn’s family in Chicago, and her mother thinks she is trying to shatter her heart by not being in Cottonwood for Christmas.

Meanwhile, a blizzard is headed their way and it might derail her plans along with a murder.

This one was kind of sad because the murder was of a young lady that has been in previous books and so you kind of know her more than it just being someone you have never read about.  It had a great mystery and kept me guessing as there was so many good suspects!

My favorite character is Kenni’s ghostly grandfather who is her ghost deputy when a murder happens so yes there is a little paranormal element in the stories.

Recommend this one to all cozy lovers!
