Our overall verdict "Brilliant"

The Timberton Hotel has always provided a perfect Christmas retreat for regular guests, as well as newcomers. But the small town of Timberton, Montana, hasn’t been the same since resident chef and artist, Mist, arrived, bringing a unique new age flavor to the old western town.

When guests check in for the holidays, they bring along worries, fears and broken hearts, unaware that Mist has a way of working magic in people’s lives. Old-fashioned time spent together, exquisite food, conversation and a snowball or two offer guests a chance to trade sadness for hope. One thing is certain: no matter how cold winter’s grip is on each guest, no one leaves Timberton without a warmer heart.

“Christmas at the Timberton Hotel is special. The beauty and peace people find there is magic. Strangers come to escape their pain and find solace and strength. I loved this story. It gave me a sense of hope. The characters are amazing.” 
 
“Deborah weaves a beautiful mosaic of Christmas sights, sounds and smells and introduces us to memorable characters. From the grieving widow to the five-year-old child who lost his brother to a reclusive scholar who only wants to sit in front of the fireplace and read, each are treated with genuine emotion and care which adds to this uplifting story.”

Mistletoe at Moonglow is my first foray into Deborah Garner books and this is short novella, one thing that struck me that about it is that it didn’t seem to have any particular plot line at all but yet it was still engaging enough to keep you reading. 

I felt there was very little back story of any of the characters to give me a feel for what has happened, especially to Mist,  prior to ending up at the Timberton hotel. 

The guest who all arrived to spend Christmas at the hotel all have an air of sadness around them, but Mist seems to be able to just know what to do to make everything all right for them. There is heartache for most of them but Mist – according one guest who is a child, is magical at bringing them all together and just knowing the right thing to do. 

The descriptions make this seem a great place to spend Christmas alone or with family, and I loved the little collection of recipes at the end of the book , as boy does Mist cook soon lovely meals.

Its a strange little book but overall this is a heartwarming little Christmas novella, just missing a little backstory and more character development. I really want to know about Mist – but not sure what book would be best to get it or it is still to come?

Christmas at the Timberton Hotel arrives each year with a unique set of guests, some returning, some new.
