Guest book review by Carly Louise Wilson
‘Yuletide At Moonglow’ is the sixth book in Moonglow Christmas read series by Deborah Garner, and it made for a good lighthearted Christmas tale.

The book is about the Timberton Hotel, and the preparations and buildup to the annual Christmas festivities. If you are familiar with the series, you will be keen to learn of the annual snowman competition, the Santa Claus out in the commons, and learn more of the owner Mist.

Mist owns the hotel by day and paints cute pictures for all her guests in the side. She basks in the traditions, ensuring that this year two sittings within the hotels Moonglow cafe go without a hitch. I love Mist’s caring nature, and each guest to the hotel comes with their own story to tell, personalities and add their own bit of excitement into the event.

The cute moments between Mist and her boyfriend Michael are touching and I loved how everyone made time for Selena the little girl turns Christmas Elf.

If you are looking for a book to add a bit of sprinkle to your life and get you into the festive mood, then Yuletide at Christmas is the book for you.

A great read with some cute festive recipes for readers to enjoy. I would recommend to all fiction lovers, and those wanting to snuggle up with a book.

Mistletoe at Moonglow, The Moonglow Christmas Series, Book 1 

The Timberton Hotel has always provided a perfect Christmas retreat for regular guests, as well as newcomers. But the small town of Timberton, Montana, hasn't been the same since resident chef and artist, Mist, arrived, bringing a unique new age flavor to the old western town.

When guests check in for the holidays, they bring along worries, fears and broken hearts, unaware that Mist has a way of working magic in people's lives. Old-fashioned time spent together, exquisite food, conversation and a snowball or two offer guests a chance to trade sadness for hope. One thing is certain: no matter how cold winter's grip is on each guest, no one leaves Timberton without a warmer heart.

Silver Bells at Moonglow by [Garner, Deborah]
Silver Bells at Moonglow, The Moonglow Christmas Series, Book 2

Christmas at the Timberton Hotel arrives each year with a unique set of guests, some returning, some new. When this holiday brings a celebrity seeking reprieve, sisters who are distant yet closer to each other than they think, a widow approaching a new horizon, and an eclectic smattering of local townsfolk and visiting relatives, the season is certain to be eventful. Add in a hint of romance and there's more than snow in the air around the small Montana town.

Elegant decor and exquisite cuisine from resident artist and chef, Mist, form a backdrop to much needed camaraderie, bringing strangers and friends together. When the last note of Christmas carols has faded away, the soft whisper of silver bells from the front door's wreath will usher guests and townsfolk alike back into the world with hope for the coming year.

Gingerbread at Moonglow, The Moonglow Christmas Series, Book 3

The small town of Timberton, Montana, boasts an ambiance of near-magical proportions during the Christmas season, due in no small part to resident artist and chef Mist's mysterious way of working small miracles in people's everyday lives. Each year, return guests and new arrivals mingle with local townsfolk to enjoy companionship, exquisite decor, and exceptional cuisine at The Timberton Hotel.

As the aromas of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and molasses mix with heartfelt camaraderie and sweet romance, guests share reflections on family, friendship, and life. Although decorating the outside of a gingerbread house may prove easier than deciding what goes inside, no one leaves Timberton without renewed hope for the future.

Nutcracker at Moonglow, The Moonglow Christmas Series, Book 4

The small Montana town of Timberton has a way of bringing magic to the holidays, especially for guests of the local hotel. Resident artist and chef Mist has a way of touching people's lives with exquisite cuisine, imaginative art, and her own ethereal nature. 

When a nearby theatre burns down just before Christmas, cast members of The Nutcracker arrive at the Timberton Hotel with only a sliver of holiday joy. Camaraderie, compassion, and shared inspiration combine to help at least one hidden dream come true. As with every Christmas season in Timberton, this year's guests will face the New Year with a renewed sense of hope.

But whether the snow falls or not, one thing is certain: with Mist around, there's bound to be a little magic. No one ever leaves Timberton without renewed hope for the future.

Guest Book Review - Randolph the Christmas Moose

 


Randolph the Moose lives with his mother in the Great White North. After a chance encounter with the reindeer from Santa Claus' sleigh-pulling team, Randolph finds new joy in trail running as he trains to join the reindeer in Santa's flight school. But when the head elf places him at the workshop loading dock instead (due to his tremendous bulk), Randolph has to use his brains and work ethic to earn respect at his new job... and even save Christmas. 
 
Imagine Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer, except...  

- Randolph has a healthy self-image 

- Randolph has a more positive outlet for his feelings 

- Randolph runs, but not away from his problems 

- Randolph is pro-active, refusing to let Santa's workshop define him as a moose 

BE YOUR OWN MOOSE!

Guest book review by Carly Louise Wilson
Randolph the Christmas Moose by Gerry Gibson is a beautifully illustrated festive book suitable for all ages. The book is about Randolph a moose who one day sees a group of reindeer’s running past him. He joins them, enjoying the laughs and and jokes not realising some are at his expense. They ridicule him for being different, for standing out, threatened by his goal to be part of the flight team for Santa, and try and crush his dreams.

But Randolph is tough and puts in the work to provide himself, running in his spare time and gaining employment in the loading department in Santa’s workshop. It is in this role that he becomes accepted by others, polar bears become his friends, and he manages to successfully challenge the status quo of how things get done. Eventually leading to a promotion and the salvaging of Christmas.

The book had so many important themes such as: exclusion, overcoming animosity, not being afraid to challenge what you don’t feel is right and overall acceptance. It also has a strong message about not being afraid to be different, and it is a very poignant book for children of all ages, especially in today’s society. A very empowering book that has a moral for everyone.

I also loved that Rudolph was up to no good and played pranks on other reindeer’s, so there is definitely a few moments which would earn some chuckles.

It was a fun and enjoyable read and I would happily recommend to those looking for festive books to read to their children.
