Blog Tour: The White Christmas Inn by Colleen Wright

by Colleen Wright
Atria/Howard Books
ISBN: 9781501180606; $15.99

A New England inn seems like the picture-perfect place to spend the holidays. But when a snowstorm shuts the roads and keeps all the guests inside, they find themselves worrying that this Christmas may not be exactly what they dreamed.

Hannah has plans for a picturesque winter wedding, but they come crashing down when her fiancé calls everything off.

Jeanne and Tim don’t know how they’re going to keep the inn open another year – or how to bridge the distance in their marriage. With a flurry of unexpected guests, they’ll have to work together to fix all the problems that crop up. But will it be enough to rekindle their relationship? 

Molly just needs to finish her latest book, but her writer’s block is crippling. And the arrival of Marcus, a handsome widower with two young girls, is exactly the distraction she doesn’t need.

As the characters’ stories intertwine, they discover that with faith, and a little bit of Christmas magic, they just might find hope where they thought it had been lost.

This book was pitched to me as "Love Actually meets The Holiday meets The Hallmark Channel," and since those are two of my favorite Christmas movies, I was immediately here for it. And it delivered to the full extent. I had a full smile on my face as I read this book. I was so easily transported to the beautiful inn. I felt as if I was there, eating all the delicious goodies that Jeanne made, chatting with the guests in the common room while sneaking pieces of pie, and even taking sleigh rides with Luke. Colleen did a great job with the setting and scenery here.

The characters, too. It was so easy to fall into their stories and start rooting for them. I fervently hoped that Jeanne and Tim would fix their financial and relationship strain. I cursed Hannah's fiancé, but then immediately was like, "You're better off without him, girl!" One of the characters threw me for a loop that I wasn't expecting, but it was a delightful loop. This book gave me the exact same feeling as sitting in my jammies on the couch watching Hallmark Christmas movies all day long. Every time I opened the book back up, I found myself once again in a happy place.

If you love Hallmark and Netflix romantic Christmas movies, just go buy this one. Just do it. You won't even regret it.
