Do you believe in Christmas Miracles?
Holly is looking for a change and even though not everyone agrees with her career choices, she’s determined there’s more to this life than the long hours she works as an editor in New York City. What she doesn’t expect is to meet Mitch, a recluse who’s hiding more than she realises.
Mitch does all he can to avoid human contact, spending his days in the little log cabin out in the woods behind Inglenook Falls where he owns a Christmas tree farm, so when Holly falls into his life, he’s not sure how to react. All he knows is that something needs to change if he ever wants to get his life back on track.
Along with friends Cleo and Darcy, Holly is determined to bring joy back to Mitch’s life, but will he appreciate their interference? And when a business proposition throws everything up in the air, will it do more harm than good and ruin lives forever?
Both Holly and Mitch must learn that on the surface people aren’t always what they seem…but if you dig a little deeper, they can take you by surprise.
Curl up this Christmas for plenty of snowflakes, roaring log fires, a marriage proposal, unlikely friendships and second chances as we return to the much-loved characters in the New York Ever After series.
I love Christmas. I love the decorations, the music, the snow, the food, and the festive feeling. And I love the Christmas novels that come out at this time of the year. I love their heartwarming and cosy atmosphere, the beautiful stories, and the evocative settings. And CHRISTMAS MIRACLES AT THE LITTLE LOG CABIN meets all these requirements, starting from the setting. The author chose two beautiful locations for this novel. One of them is Manhattan that I think it’s one of these places that turns magical during the Christmas period. The other is Inglenook Falls, a small town outside of New York, that with its Christmas markets, snow, isolated cabins, and general good feeling gives a real atmospheric tone to the novel.
The protagonists are engaging, realistic, and very likable. Holly is a journalist who left her well-paid job at a magazine to go freelance and become her own boss. Her first assignment is to cover a new luxury hotel at Inglenook Falls and it’s here that one day she stumbles upon Mitch’s remote cabin. Following a bad few years, Mitch has isolated himself from the rest of the world and spends his time in the woods surrounding his cabin where he occasionally sells beautiful Christmas trees. Holly and Mitch couldn’t be more different: where she is cheerful, friendly, and outgoing, he is reclusive, ill-tempered, and stubborn. But their meetings were entertaining and they were the part of the story I mostly looked forward to reading.
The plot is romantic, engrossing, funny, and overall Christmassy and it made me wish I was reading it in front of a fireplace while sipping hot chocolate.
This is the fourth book in the New York Ever After series and I am sorry to say I haven’t read the first three books, yet, but I am definitely going to do it soon. If, like me, you’ve just found out about this fabulous series, you won’t have any problem following the story and the characters in CHRISTMAS MIRACLES AT THE LITTLE LOG CABIN, as the novel can be read also as a stand-alone. I’d like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part in the blog tour and for introducing me to this faboulous series.
