*Books-on-Tour Review*

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Today is my stop, on the final day, of the "Christmas at Fireside Cabins" by Jenny Hale Books-on-Tour!

Hale has written up an undeniably brilliant holiday romantic getaway story! This was just what I needed in-between thriller reads. We're still months away, but now, because of this book, I've already got so much Christmas spirit! Can I visit Pinewood Hills, please? Fireside Cabins just booms holiday goals! 

Just like magic, themes of friendship and love radiate through these pages as this narrative follows Lila Evans on a mission to bring some holiday cheer to her three best friends, their lovely, elderly cabin host, and the local coffee barista! Hale does a splendid job of weaving a tale of optimism, bringing light to the point that even if things don't go as initially planned there's always hope. 

I wholeheartedly adored the cast of characters Hale whipped up, especially sweet little Rex and his relationship with Theo! Throughout every situation that arose, every speedbump that was thrown her way, the main character Lila never let it get her down for long. She found the light in people and circumstances when most saw darkness. I particularly loved the ending. Yes, it was super Hallmark-ish, but it was entirely fitting; some might even say a Christmas miracle! 

I am so happy that I took a chance with this new-to-me author! I would recommend this to everyone in need of a little bit (or a lot) of holiday cheer! I hope many more fall in love with Fireside Cabins as I have. 

Thank you to the author, the publisher Bookouture and NetGalley, for this delightful advanced review copy of "Christmas at Fireside Cabins'. I have voluntarily and honestly reviewed this title five stars!

Book Blurb:

Escape to the idyllic small town of Pinewood Hills in this enchanting romance, about falling in love under the mistletoe with a sprinkle of Christmas magic…

For Lila Evans, Christmas is the toughest time of year––a heartbreaking reminder of losing her father, and just how lonely she is… This year, she’s organized a blissful getaway with her closest friends: just the remedy for the December blues.

The countryside resort of Fireside Cabins, tucked away in the snowy Tennessee hills, seems like this year’s perfect setting to get into the festive spirit. But it’s far from a winter wonderland––the crumbling cottage is falling apart, and the owner, a widow named Eleanor Finely, confesses that the cabins are on the brink of closure. Lila and her friends should pack their bags right there and then, but Lila can’t bear to leave the tearful elderly woman. She clearly has no one, and Lila, more than anyone, knows how that feels.

In search of holiday cheer, the women find a local coffee shop. But the rugged, surly owner Theo Perry has an apparent aversion to Christmas, seeming downright angry when Lila asks for a peppermint latte. No one in the area knows who he is––but it’s clear he’s running from something.

Yet there’s more to this small town than Theo’s frosty reception. As much as his coldness infuriates her, Lila can’t deny that on the rare occasions when he does smile, it feels like coming home. Plus, the cabins are just calling for some festive sparkle.

And, unexpectedly, Pinewood Hills could hold a new beginning for Lila… But can she save Fireside Cabins in time for Christmas? With a dusting of festive magic, spiced apple cider and sugarplum pie, could this be the first holiday she doesn’t spend alone?

Indulge in this glittering page-turner that might just prove, at this magical time of year, that almost anything is possible. Christmas at Fireside Cabins is the perfect holiday treat for fans of Debbie Macomber, Susan Mallery and Sheila Roberts.
