Gingerbread at Moonglow - Review and Giveaway


MY REVIEW:


This is the third book in the series by Deborah Garner about the Timberton Hotel and Moonglow Cafe, and the second one I have read.

You can see my review of Mistletoe at Moonglow here. I have to reiterate what I said, that this is a beautiful story to get you into the holiday mood.

Each of these novellas is a standalone story and they don't take very long to read. But they have a lovely familiarity, a cozy feeling, about them and you want to be friends with these characters.

Gingerbread at Moonglow, repeats the scenario that each year a small group of people gather at the Timberton Hotel for the holidays. For the last three years Mist has been running the Moonglow Cafe from the hotel, and it brings in both locals and people from afar.

Mist has a way of making all feel welcome. From the personal touches in their rooms, the fabulous menus, and the hand painted gifts, she weaves her own brand of magic making each guest happier. Everyone is special, everyone is included.

This year we have some familiar faces and some new ones, and it makes for a lovely little story. If you've read the other two you will want to know what happens with Mist and Michael, and I won't tell.

One thing about Deborah's stories is that they make you hungry. She describes all the lovely fare on offer at the cafe, and you just want to start baking. Just as well she has added some cookie recipes for you to try.

There's a mix up with the gingerbread house, which is cute and funny. But as with all good tales, there's a happy ending.


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.


NEW RELEASE….
The small town of Timberton, Montana, boasts an ambiance of near-magical proportions during the Christmas season, due in no small part to resident artist and chef Mist's mysterious way of working small miracles in people's everyday lives. Each year, return guests and new arrivals mingle with local townsfolk to enjoy companionship, exquisite decor, and exceptional cuisine at The Timberton Hotel.

As the aromas of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and molasses mix with heartfelt camaraderie and sweet romance, guests share reflections on family, friendship, and life. Although decorating the outside of a gingerbread house may prove easier than deciding what goes inside, no one leaves Timberton without renewed hope for the future.

Mistletoe at Moonglow, The Moonglow Series, Book 1 

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.

Silver Bells at Moonglow by [Garner, Deborah]
Silver Bells at Moonglow, The Moonglow Series, Book 2 

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.
