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?
Bestselling author Melody Carlson invites you to spend this holiday season in a town you’ll never forget–and never want to leave.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
Very family orientated and light. A quick read for those who love the season. Lots of personal reflection and growth for the character in this book. It’s a lovely novella like all that are written by this author. Bit costly for the size of the book, but worth the story inside. Nothing too serious to warrant any cautionary disclosure regarding triggers. A feel-good holiday book.
