BLOG TOUR - Christmas at Silver Falls

Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for Christmas at Silver Falls by Jenny Hale.


A beautiful festive romance, all about the joy of Christmas with family, second chances, and finding love under the falling snow. This enchanting and uplifting read will have you both laughing and crying while it warms your heart.

White Oaks Inn has always been at the heart of Christmas celebrations for Scarlett Bailey and her family. Her adored gran has owned the rambling, old-fashioned hotel, filled with the scent of cinnamon and chocolate, since Scarlett was a little girl. But now her gran’s home is under threat. And it looks like it could be the Baileys’ last Christmas together there…
Over the holiday season, amidst much-loved festive traditions of baking cookies and decorating the tree, Scarlett throws herself into saving the hotel. When she hears that Charlie Bryant, a handsome, successful property developer, is spending December in Silver Falls, Scarlett is hopeful he might be the answer to their problems.

When they meet, sparks fly between impulsive Scarlett and business-like Charlie – as they both have very different ideas for the future of White Oaks. Scarlett is determined to show him how much White Oaks Inn means to her family and the guests who return there every year and, as they spend more time together, she begins to realize there is more to Charlie than his serious appearance…

But Charlie is struggling with a secret from his own past. Will he be able to face it, or will it stop him from truly opening up and getting close to anyone? And can Scarlett share the true meaning of Christmas with him and save her gran’s beloved hotel along the way?

Embrace the wonder of Christmas in this gorgeous novel about living for the moment and finding love when you least expect it. Christmas at Silver Falls is the perfect festive indulgence for fans of Debbie Macomber, Susan Mallery and Sheila Roberts.

Scarlett Bailey is joining her family for what could end up being the very last time they celebrate the holiday together at her grandmother’s hotel. The establishment is bleeding money and the family plans on letting Scarlett’s grandmother know the hotel must be sold.

This truly breaks Scarlett’s heart. She has the most delightful memories. She does not have the heart to tell her grandmother. Instead, she is determined to do whatever she can to save the hotel. Christmas traditions are in full force. This is a happy, warm family, and Scarlett does not want these memories to come to an end.

Scarlett thinks she has found the answer when she hears that a rich, well-known property developer, Charlie Bryant, is staying in the town of Silver Falls during the holidays. Scarlett tried to find a way to get Charlie to buy the hotel, while at the same time, keeping her grandmother at the helm.

However, Charlie has something going on. Something deep that changed his life. Despite the fact that is is more than drawn to Scarlett, something is holding him back. Something happens and now Charlie is suddenly forced to face his past.

Charlie is the perfect hero. Oh, he certainly is not a perfect man. As a matter of fact, he was a ruthless businessman. But somewhere along the way he was able to learn some important life lessons. In so doing, what he represented to Scarlett, and ultimately the hotel, and even the town, was truly amazing. Watching a character go through changes that end up for the better is truly endearing.

As we approach the season, a story such as this helps to remind what family is all about. I absolutely loved the emotional impact that this story had on me. I truly love Jenny Hale and have enjoyed every single book I have read by her so far. I look forward to digging into her backlist while remaining eager for future books by this talented author.

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review. This is my honest opinion.


When I graduated college, one of my friends said, "Look out for this one; she's going to be an author one day." Despite being an avid reader and a natural storyteller, it wasn't until that very moment that the idea of writing novels occurred to me.

Sometimes our friends can see the things that we can't.

While I didn't start straight away, that comment sowed a seed and several years, two children, and hundreds of thousands of words later, I completed a novel that I felt was worthy of publication. The result was Coming Home for Christmas, a heart-warming story about the magic of love at Christmas, and 2017 TV movie on The Hallmark Channel.

The rest is history.

When I'm not writing, I'm a mother of two boys and a wife to a very supportive husband.
