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.
I really enjoyed this book. Keep in mind, this is a short novella, only 12 chapters long, so I was able to read it on the 6 hour trip home after being gone for Thanksgiving, but it was such a good book, none the less! I enjoyed learning about Mist, Betty and Clive, as well as the other hotel guests. This was Mist’s first Christmas at the Timberton Hotel, and she wasn’t quite sure what to expect with the Christmas dinner. I love that she gave each of the guests a gift made by her, and she got them done in such a short amount of time. For some reason though, when Mist and Matthew were talking, I thought to myself, “She’s going to give him this as a gift on Christmas morning…” and she did.
There wasn’t any romance in this novella, other than Betty and Clive kissing, once that I can remember, but it worked for the book! Not every book has to have romance in it, or sex scenes!
I really enjoyed how the Christmas dinner was described. I could practically see and smell the foods that were mentioned, and yes, it made my mouth water! It sounded absolutely delicious!
I would love to spend the Christmas holiday with my family at a place like the Timberton Hotel, with other guests! Out of all of the guests that were mentioned, I do have to say, I think Little Robert might have been my favorite!
I received a copy of this book from Beck Valley Books (Book Tours) and voluntarily read and reviewed it, and these comments and thoughts are 100% mine.

Silver Bells at Moonglow
Christmas at the Timberton Hotel arrives each year with a unique set of guests, some returning, some new. When this holiday brings a celebrity seeking reprieve, sisters who are distant yet closer to each other than they think, a widow approaching a new horizon, and an eclectic smattering of local townsfolk and visiting relatives, the season is certain to be eventful. Add in a hint of romance and there’s more than snow in the air around the small Montana town.
Elegant decor and exquisite cuisine from resident artist and chef, Mist, form a backdrop to much needed camaraderie, bringing strangers and friends together. When the last note of Christmas carols has faded away, the soft whisper of silver bells from the front door’s wreath will usher guests and townsfolk alike back into the world with hope for the coming year.
