Nestled into five beautiful acres just outside Hope Creek, Tennessee, Christmas Inn is an unforgettable place known for its joyful atmosphere and festive setting. Holiday decorations adorn each room. Trees glittering with ribbons and ornaments, gorgeous wreaths, velvet stockings and pine-scented candles brighten visitors’ stay at this vacation spot dedicated to Christmas all year, every year. The resort offers all the usual enticements plus one unique amenity…love. The little white chapel behind the inn, built by the Christmas family in the 1890s, boasts bell tower bells that toll when couples fall in love.
Every year people come to the inn looking for their Christmas spirit. Sometimes they find love too. Will the bells ring again this year?
I would like to thank Tanya Stowe for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
A Bedazzling Christmas is part of the second collection, Love at the Christmas Inn. The stories are tied together by the inn. Each story stands alone. My review is for A Bedazzling Christmas by Tanya Stowe.
Lauren and Shaun had met and fell in love at the Christmas Inn but after her mother died of cancer right around her high school graduation, Lauren walked away from Shaun and followed her dream so she could follow her mother’s final advice “follow your dreams” and have “no regrets”.
Shaun finally has full custody of his four young children. Determined to give them the best Christmas ever, he brings them back to the Christmas Inn, the place filled with such happy memories from his youth.
This sweet story of second chances is everything you want in a Christmas story. Endearing characters, precocious children, and a hopeful future. I loved Shaun and his deep love for his children. One of the most touching things in the story was the reason Shaun wouldn’t let his ten-year-old daughter cut her hair.
Though the Christmas theme is in the story – it would be hard to not have it with the Christmas Inn as the setting – this story can certainly be enjoyed year round.
