Advent Reads Day 22: The White Christmas Inn by Colleen Wright

 Welcome to Advent Reads!

This is an event I have had on my blog for several years running now.  Each evening I feature a different holiday themed book. Think of it as your Book Advent Calendar! I post a variety of holiday books including romance, children's, middle-grade, mystery, paranormal, and I try to find some that are other holiday celebrations than Christmas too. I hope you will stop by each evening to see what new book I have for you!

Synopsis: "A New England inn seems like the picture-perfect place to spend the holidays. But when a snowstorm shuts the roads and keeps them all inside, the guests find themselves worrying that this Christmas may not be exactly what they dreamed of.

Molly just needs to keep her head down and finish her latest book, but her writer’s block is crippling. The arrival of Marcus, a handsome widower with two young girls, is exactly the distraction she doesn't need.

Hannah was hoping for a picturesque winter wedding, but her plans come crashing down when her fiancé calls everything off. She reconnects with her childhood friend, Luke, when he comes to check on his grandmother before the storm.

Jeanne and Tim don't know how they're going to keep the inn open another year—or how to bridge the distance between them in their marriage. With a flurry of unexpected guests, they'll have to work together to fix all the problems that crop up. But will it be enough to rekindle their relationship?

As the characters’ stories intertwine, they start to find hope where they thought it had been lost. With faith, and a little bit of Christmas magic, the inn—and its inhabitants—might just make it through the holidays after all."

My Review:  This is definitely that warm, cozy, feel good book that I was looking for this season. I loved the setting of a small inn filled with people avoiding a storm. We had characters from all walks of life and stages of life. Romance is a big feature in this story but I love how it featured relationships in so many stages; fresh and relatively new, a broken relationship, a tested more established relationship, relationships after a loss and budding new relationships. We also get some great family relationships and elements. It was just an all around sweet, making things work when times are tough and the holidays are upon us. 

My Rating: I really enjoyed this one, it was relatively short and a lot of familiar elements but it was done in a way that felt like a new take on things. I got all the warm cozies I wanted with it. I give it a rating of Four Paws.
