When Matt Hardy narrowly lost the inn and property that butted his land, he just hoped it wasn't another city slicker coming to make matters worse after the previous owners gutted the place for an art gallery. But the minute he recognized the sweet, freckle-faced girl from his childhood and heard her plans to reopen the inn, he jumps at the chance to help his childhood crush restore a place where he made so many fond memories.
While working on repairs, Liz and Matt discover her grandmother’s collection of angels in one of the cabins. When the angels start mysteriously showing up all over the inn, she begins to look at them as reassurance―that restoring the inn is what she's meant to do. But when an accident leaves Liz feeling like she made a mistake, will Matt―and the residents of Antler Creek―be able to show Liz that she's found a home? And possibly true love as well?
How could anyone not believe in Christmas magic while reading this book?
Liz always wanted to run her grandparents’ inn and she finally gets a chance when she finds it up for auction. But it needs a lot of work and she can’t do it alone. She gets help from her childhood friend Matt, who also wanted the inn. Matt has a crush on Liz when they were younger and is more than happy to help her out. While working together, they also find themselves falling in love.
This magical tale played through my mind as I was reading it, like a Hallmark channel movie. Beautifully told, mesmerizing and an all-around, feel good Christmas story.
