Christmas in Winter Hill by Melody Carlson

by Sandra Merville Hart

This contemporary novel is set during the holidays and snagged my attention right away.

Krista moves her daughter to Winter Hill to accept a position as city manager. She soon learns the town has a Christmasville celebration—and it’s part of her job description.

The trouble is, Krista doesn’t like Christmas. She grew up in various foster homes that made celebrating the holiday a challenge.

That’s not the only challenge with the job, but Conner Harris and his daughter certainly make Krista long for the move to a new state to work out.

The characters in this contemporary romance tugged at my heart. I was especially caught up in the struggles of Krista’s daughter, who had such a likeable, fun personality. As trouble escalated, I didn’t know how it was going to end. The festive names of different businesses in the city added to the holiday fun.
