About the Book

Krista Galloway is not a fan of Christmas. After her rough childhood in multiple foster homes, the holiday season just brings too many bad memories to the surface. But when she accepts a job as a city manager in the mountain town of Winter Hill, Washington, Christmas is part of the deal. The small town is famous for its Christmasville celebration, something that the city manager . . . well, manages.

As she tries to make her tiny new apartment feel like home for her and her eight-year-old daughter, Emily, Krista begins to wonder if this move was a mistake. She doesn't always feel welcomed in the close-knit town, and Emily continually wonders, "Where's the snow?"

Can a friendly stranger and his family help restore Krista's Christmas spirit before the big day?

My Thoughts

I recommend that you add Christmas in Winter Hill to your Christmas reading list! This was a sweet novel that definitely gets you in the mood for Christmas.

Krista is likable and easy to relate to as she is trying to make a good impression as the new city manager. Her daughter, Emily, is spunky and optimistic. The way Pauline included Krista and Emily in her family made my heart happy. I liked how Conner pursued Krista. 

There were a couple of spiritual themes that were briefly mentioned such as living one day at a time and forgiveness which were nice.

I thought it was so clever how the businesses in Winter Hill were named after Santa's reindeer such as Dasher's Deli and Comet's Diner. I also enjoyed the baby goats!

If you like contemporary Christian fiction, especially Christmas fiction, I recommend this book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
