Mistletoe at Moonglow - Review & Giveaway



My Review:

Mist has a special kind of magic. The kind that comes from being a good observer, a good listener and a kind friend. In this short novella Mist weaves her special brand of charm through her cooking and art, to bring Christmas joy to the guests at The Timberton Hotel. Mist runs a cafe called Moonglow inside the hotel and she cooks up a feast for the senses. 
This story made me want to start my decorating because of the artistic descriptions and clever ideas.
In addition to the lovely passages about food and fare, Mistletoe at Moonglow reminds us that the holidays can be hard for some people, but hope and happiness can be found in friendship which makes things a little easier. 
I loved the female leads, Mist who runs the cafe and Betty who runs the hotel. There's also a leading man for everyone of us, from bookish Michael, to handy Clive, to caring Bob and the scholarly Professor.
Included in the book are recipes for the cookie exchange. These recipes made me want to get baking with all the yummy suggestions. A lovely story to get you in the holiday mood. 


I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Read on for information about the book, the author and a giveaway.





The Timberton Hotel has always provided a perfect Christmas retreat for regular guests, as well as newcomers. But the small town of Timberton, Montana, hasn't been the same since resident chef and artist, Mist, arrived, bringing a unique new age flavor to the old western town.

When guests check in for the holidays, they bring along worries, fears and broken hearts, unaware that Mist has a way of working magic in people's lives. Old-fashioned time spent together, exquisite food, conversation and a snowball or two offer guests a chance to trade sadness for hope. One thing is certain: no matter how cold winter's grip is on each guest, no one leaves Timberton without a warmer heart.

"Christmas at the Timberton Hotel is special. The beauty and peace people find there is magic. Strangers come to escape their pain and find solace and strength. I loved this story. It gave me a sense of hope. The characters are amazing." 

"Deborah weaves a beautiful mosaic of Christmas sights, sounds and smells and introduces us to memorable characters. From the grieving widow to the five-year-old child who lost his brother to a reclusive scholar who only wants to sit in front of the fireplace and read, each are treated with genuine emotion and care which adds to this uplifting story."

 "Deborah did it again. What a great christmas story. I love christmas stories and this will be one that I will read year after year."

Silver Bells at Moonglow
Christmas at the Timberton Hotel arrives each year with a unique set of guests, some returning, some new. When this holiday brings a celebrity seeking reprieve, sisters who are distant yet closer to each other than they think, a widow approaching a new horizon, and an eclectic smattering of local townsfolk and visiting relatives, the season is certain to be eventful. Add in a hint of romance and there's more than snow in the air around the small Montana town.

Elegant decor and exquisite cuisine from resident artist and chef, Mist, form a backdrop to much needed camaraderie, bringing strangers and friends together. When the last note of Christmas carols has faded away, the soft whisper of silver bells from the front door's wreath will usher guests and townsfolk alike back into the world with hope for the coming year.
