Mistletoe and moonshine: a Christmas match made in heaven?
Moonshine Hollow’s famous ‘Lightning Flash’ might be an acquired taste, although the same could be said for moonshine distillery owner Cole Landon, what with his workaholic habits and ‘Scrooge’ tendencies when it comes to all things Christmassy.
But when Jenna Pendean from Cornwall pays a visit to Cole’s family-run distillery in Tennessee during the holiday season, will Cole’s cynicism about the existence of Christmas miracles be put to the test?
Review (No Spoilers)
This might have been the first time that I’ve read a novel that takes place in Tennessee! The inclusion of written accents, combined with an emphasis on the importance of friends and family, really helped contribute to the warm and homey feel of this novel. I could definitely imagine this as the perfect book to read while cuddled up and drinking a hot beverage.
My favorite thing about this novel was definitely the personalities of the characters. Though I wasn’t able to connect with them as well as I would have hoped, it was really nice seeing how reasonable and emotionally mature they all were. Whenever there was a fallout between two or more of them, the conflict was handled very well. I never had to feel like anything was being stretched out for too long in order to create more drama.
If you’re looking for a quick, feel-good read about family and Christmastime, I’d definitely recommend checking out this book.
