borLinda’s Book Obsession Reviews “Christmas Angels” by Nancy Naigle, St. Martin’s Press, Oct. 2019
Nancy Naigle, author of “Christmas Angels” has written a delightful, memorable, entertaining and delightful novel. The Genres for this novel are Fiction, Women’s Fiction, and Romance. I love the way the author vividly describes the location of the mountains and the small town of Angels Creek. The timeline for this story is set in the present and goes to the past when it pertains to the characters or events. The author describes her cast of characters as friendly, kind, helpful and caring. Of course, I love Elvis, a puppy that just keeps growing, steals your attention and has a special personality.
Liz Westmoreland is a successful businesswoman who has been able to save her money for a special dream. Liz has always wanted a marriage like those of her deceased grandparents. She would also like to have an inn similar to the one her grandparents had owned in Angels Creek, where she has the fondest memories of fishing and spending time with her grandparents. When she notices that the inn is listed for auction, Liz enters and wins the auction.
Liz is in for a rude awakening when she views what was her grandparent’s Inn years ago. It needs a tremendous amount of TLC and money spent to repair it. Liz meets Matt Hardy, who had an interest in the property as well. He remembers Liz when she was visiting her grandparents.
After a terrible accident, Liz starts doubting whether it will be possible to restore the inn. Liz does find several angels that make her question her decisions. I appreciate that the author discusses the importance of family, friends, neighbors, kindness, love, and hope. I would recommend this heartwarming novel.
