A brief summary from Simon & Schuster:
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.
If you’re looking for a sweet, heart-warming Christmas tale, then get ready to snuggle up under the firelight with The White Christmas Inn.
If you’re ever prone to people watching and imagining what their stories might be, this is the book for you. Set in a small New England Inn, guests find themselves hunkered down in a midst of a snowstorm. With a wedding put on hold, unexpected travelers showing up requesting rooms, past relationships rekindled, and a marriage on the brink of ruin – there is a lot going on!
While this book was a bit slow for me, it was a nice read and I enjoyed getting to know the characters. Molly’s relationship with Marcus and his daughters was really sweet, and they were probably my favorite parts of the whole story. I could see this becoming a tv Christmas movie one day.
