Christmas Angels {A Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own. 

A heartwarming Christmas story filled with the magic and miracles of the holiday season by USA Today Bestselling author, Nancy Naigle.
Growing up, Liz Westmoreland dreamed of taking over her grandparents inn located in the small mountain town of Antler Creek only for it to be sold before she ever got the chance. While browsing the internet, she stumbles upon a listing for what looks to be the picturesque inn and it’s set to go to auction. Liz places a bid, and by a miracle, wins the auction. But when she gets there she finds the property in significant disrepair.
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?

USA Today bestselling author NANCY NAIGLE whips up small-town love stories with a dash of suspense and a whole lot of heart. Now happily retired, she devotes her time to writing, antiquing, and the occasional spa day with friends. A native of Virginia Beach, she currently calls North Carolina home. Some of her other titles include The Secret Ingredient, Christmas in Evergreen: Letters to Santa, and Recipe for Romance.

If you love Hallmark Christmas movies, you are going to absolutely, positively LOVE Nancy Naigle's newest Christmas book Christmas Angels. Not only is Nancy the author behind a few of my personal Hallmark favorites like Christmas in Evergreen, Christmas Joy and Hope at Christmas,  this book likewise has all the making of a fantastic Hallmark movie too! Not to mention the several references to Hallmark throughout that made this Christmas movie loving fan super happy! Hallmark love aside, let's get onto the story, shall we?

In this book, we meet Liz as she dreams of owning an inn, just like her grandparents had when she was a girl. And in true holiday magic, not only does she find AN inn, but she finds THE inn... the very same that her grandparents had sold! The story takes us to the perfect little Christmas town Antler Creek, where she takes on the project of turning the inn around, and in the process finds herself connected to Matt.

The chemistry between Liz and Matt was absolutely fantastic. I could not get enough. Matt truly was the perfect romance novel hero with his incredibly sweet romantic gestures and his unyielding dedication. It was really hard not to root for him to win over the girl. More than that though, I really enjoyed the nostalgia of this story. The idea of bringing back treasured holiday traditions and memories definitely gave me ALL the Christmas feels. Was it a little predictable at times? Sure. Was it perhaps even what some might consider slightly cheesy? Of course. But did I absolutely, positively love it anyway? Without a doubt! This is just the type of sweet, heartwarming romances that I cannot get enough of--- especially during the holiday season!

If you are looking for the perfect read this holiday season (or need some Christmas cheer throughout the year), I definitely suggest starting with this one!


  1. This definitely sounds like a good book to read to get in the Christmas spirit.
