Yuletide at Moonglow by Deborah Garner + #Giveaway

When a Yuletide festival promises jovial crowds, resident artist and chef, Mist, knows she’ll have her hands full, as will all of the regular townsfolk. Between Mist’s legendary Christmas Eve dinner at the Timberton Hotel and this season’s festival events, guests will be surrounded with opportunities for camaraderie and celebration. 

There’s a unique magic to Christmas in the small Montana town, one that offers joy, peace, and community to all who pass through. One thing is always certain: no one leaves Timberton without a renewed sense of hope for the future. *Recipes included! *Cookie recipes included!

I declare Christmas officially started because I have read Deborah Garner's new Moonglow novella, Yuletide At Moonglow! These warmhearted stories have become an essential part of my seasonal traditions now - together with rushing to the kitchen to a bake a batch of cookies as soon as I finish each story. It's lovely also to realise I am one of a considerable number of readers who also relish these annual Timberton visits - the Moonglow global family extends far beyond Mist and Betty's hotel!

This year's story had a slightly different vibe because Timberton hosted a Yuletide festival so the story's focus wasn't entirely on the hotel. The festival reminded me of wandering London's South Bank some years ago in December with all the decorated cabins and the scent of hot cider in the air. I love how Garner manages to evoke the best of the season without being too saccharine sweet. There was a lovely mix of characters again this year with the new faces adding depth. I can't believe eighty people were fed that amazing meal without any kitchen stress though - Mist has such a serene aura! Now to find myself a Spinach Mushroom Strudel recipe so I can recreate a little Timberton magic in my own home.

  1. Sounds like a good book. I like the cover.

  2. I would say the beach would be the magical place I would want to spend Christmas at with my family!
