Short and sweet, this inspirational holiday read is a light palate cleanser - good for when you'er getting stressed around the holidays. Single mom Krista and her daughter Emily move from Arizona to Winter Hill Washington and they're in for a treat. Krista isn't one for Christmas cheer but that's about to change when she takes over as city manager and has to help out with Christmastown. Everyone in the small town gets involved and it's a month long festival. This year is even more special as they are giving away a "Christmas house" - a lovingly refurbished historic home to the best essay (see where this is going yet?). Krista and her daughter have made lots of new friends (her assistant's son isn't hard on the eyes) but she's also made some enemies as well. The town's finance manager has a bone to pick with Christmastown and he takes out his frustration on Krista. Was moving to this town a good idea? Will she survive without a car in a small apartment? Is she happier? A quick read with a happy ending all wrapped up in a bow. ( )

This was a great Christmas read. Krista, a woman who doesn’t like Christmas ends up the city manager of a town that is obsessed with it. She just starts to get settled in and some things happen that turn much of the town against her. BUT – since this a Christmas, feel-good book, it does have a happy ending. I did enjoy this novella. I appreciated that it was short - with everything going on around Christmas, it is always nice to have books like this to go to at the end of a busy day! I got the book from LibraryNet in exchange for a fair review. ( )

Krista does not like Christmas very much . And she is beginning to think moving her self and her daughter to a small mountain town in Winter Hill Washington so she could take a job as city manager was a big mistake . Since being the town manager means she has to manager the Christmas plans for the town. As she tries to make her small apartment feel like a home for her 8 year old daughter . She feels not everyone in town likes her. Can a stranger and his family help Krista welcome Christmas in to he r heart? ( )

Krista moves to the small town of Winter Hill to start over. She takes the city manager job and immediately starts uncovering some things that others wish to keep hidden. She also really dislikes Christmas and is now living in a town that is obsessed with Christmas. This is a short tale that begins there and ends with romance, vindication and, of course, Krista's best Christmas of all.

I quite liked this book. It's relatively easy to see what's going to happen and nothing surprising happens, but the author has a lovely way of getting the reader to the expected destination. This was a gentle, kind, moving tale that doesn't have any huge events or big twists, but it's heartwarming in a sincere way that doesn't come off as corny, as so many Christmas themed books do. You can read this book in a few days, and when you're done perhaps you'll feel like I did--just a little bit happier and more hopeful. ( )

Slow my beating heart! Another Melody Carlson Christmas book! I cannot even express how I look forward to each one of Ms. Carlson’s new holiday books! It amazes me how she captures the spirit of the season and all character’s individual perceptions.
Winter Hill looks like a fresh new start her life and her career to recently divorced Krista. Her job as a small town city manager turns out to be much more complex than she anticipated. A difficult childhood in foster care has turned Krista into a non-Christmas person. Even with her little daughter Emily she doesn’t celebrate the holiday. Wouldn’t you know it! Winter Hill is Christmas celebration crazy! As new city manager she is thrown directly into the hubbub of planning the big event. More serious problems are at hand as Krista finds some concerning evidence in the inner workings of the city finances.
There were so many emotions Ms. Carlson captured in her characters. For one, the excitement of town’s people preparing for their giant annual celebration. It was contagious just reading it! I could picture all the food, game booths and families spending quality time together.
Not everyone has Currier and Ives Christmas memories. Pain and disappointment can sometimes run deep, like Krista’s from her childhood in foster care. I felt her struggle in trying to hide her attitude from her new associates and her sweet little daughter. I experienced her anxiety of doing the right thing even though it was unpopular as a new person in town. The author’s talented writing also enabled me to picture each person, the decorations, and all the details surrounding the story. It was almost like watching a Christmas movie! Not only will this book put you in the Christmas spirit but will delight you with many surprises along the way. Another incredible Christmas book by the author! I can’t wait for the next one!
I received this book from Revell Publications in exchange for an honest review.
The opinions are my own. ( )
