Author: Deborah Garner
Title: Mistletoe at Moonglow (Paige MacKenzie Mysteries #2.5)
Genre: Fiction
Pages: ebook
Published: November 2015
Where I Got It: My Shelf (Amazon Freebie)

A Christmas novella with cookie recipes included! 

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.

Awwweeee sometimes you really need a heart-warming tale in the middle of May. I found this randomly as a freebie on Amazon and I decided I needed to read it ASAP.

This was a short novella about Mist and her crew running the Timberton Hotel in a small town in Montana. Mist has a certain talent in helping people who come to her hotel. She is simply the nicest person and I wish I could go to her hotel. 

The guests varied from a family who just lost their son, a man who has to be away from his family on Xmas, a young lady from Arizona just trying to get away from her problems, and so forth. 

The characters were a little 2D, but it is a short story and there are a lot of characters, so it is bound to be tough to do much there. 

It was a quick read and I highly enjoyed it. I want to learn more about Mist and see her work her magic on more people who really need it! For sure read this. It put a smile on my face.

ALSO! I LOVED the recipes at the end. Super yummy! I want to try them this Xmas. :D 

Out of five stars, I'll give this a 4.
