Publisher’s Description:

A snowy small town.

A snow globe that grants wishes.

A love that’s meant to be.

Evergreen, Vermont is about to be in the rearview mirror of Allie Shaw’s vintage red pickup truck. It’s hard to say goodbye to her small town and her veterinarian practice, but she’s moving to Washington D.C., where her big-city-loving boyfriend lives.

Ever since Ryan Bellamy’s wife died, he hardly knows how to celebrate Christmas. He’s decided to take his daughter Zoe to Florida, and Evergreen is just a quick stop on the way to the airport. While they’re there, Zoe partakes in a local tradition, making a Christmas wish on the snow globe at the town diner.

But neither Allie’s nor Ryan’s Christmas goes as planned. They’ve checked their wish lists twice, and they didn’t say anything about meeting someone new…or about a fresh chance at love.

This magical, feel-good romance includes a free Hallmark recipe for Vermont Christmas Card Cookies.

My Thoughts:

 

This is another well written holiday tale from Hallmark. I saw the movie when it debuted last year and was absolutely thrilled when the book became available at NetGalley.

Sweet, clean family oriented romance with just enough angst to make them interesting is what Hallmark books and movies for that matter are about.

I loved the characters, Zoe in particular makes this story an absolute delight.

I enjoyed reading this book which is being published almost a full year after the movie first aired. As I read I could picture the scenes in the movie although it has been almost a year since I had first seen it.

I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. There is no sensual rating in this “G” rated book meant for family consumption.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the publisher’s via Netgalley to read.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily

Publisher’s Description:

From USA Today Bestselling Author Shanna Hatfield

Two octogenarians won’t stop until they make a match. . .

Sage Presley loves her job as the receptionist at Golden Skies Retirement Village in Holiday, Oregon. She enjoys the residents and their wisdom, even if some of them are more than a little quirky. Determined to ignore the matchmaking efforts of two women at the retirement home, Sage’s sole focus is on raising her brother, Shane. In spite of her best efforts, she can’t help but notice the hunky electrician who continually comes to her rescue.

Grateful for the opportunity to open his own electrical business, Justin James moves to Holiday full of plans and dreams. He’s quickly drawn in by the close-knit community, but finds the lack of suitable single women disturbing. Despite himself, his attention is captured by the receptionist at the retirement home where he’s working on a big job. Yet, he can’t begin to understand why two matchmaking octogenarians are intent on forcing him together with the woman he’s convinced is married.

A sweet romance novella sprinkled with humor, hope, and the meaning of real love, Summer Bride will warm the hearts of readers while bringing them a smile.
