After being dumped by her boyfriend, at Christmas no less, Liz goes back home to Tennessee with her tail between her legs. She has no job, no experience, and is questioning her life choices. I love the way the author made me really feel the atmosphere of the smokey mountains. Farm life, a snowstorm, decorating and cooking for the holidays. This book was like a warm hug, it takes place in a cozy town and has relatable characters. Jenny Hale has made me want to visit Tennessee in winter, especially to ride horses in the snow. I knew how it was going to turn out almost right away. Like Elizabeth and Paul enough as a couple but they didn’t make me swoon. I was glad Liz found her happiness in the end.

Elizabeth is very fortunate to have a mom and her grandma’s friend Beatrice around as they give really good advice. I adored Liz’s grandmother’s letters, they were so sweet and lovely. Reminded me of my own grandmother whose birthday was last week. If she were still alive she’d only be a few years older than Elizabeth’s gran.

This was such a sweet book that put me in the holiday spirit. From snow storms to hot chocolates loaded with whipped cream I was feeling very festive while reading this romance. I drooled over all the food that is mentioned, and of course the drinks…spiced coffee and loaded hot chocolate, anyone!? Overall an okay, feel good, quick read. A story about the holidays but also about family and falling in love.
