The White Christmas Inn

Colleen Wright. Howard, $15.99 trade paper (288p) ISBN 978-1-5011-8060-6
In her debut, Wright weaves a delight- ful tale of six stranded families thrown together during a whiteout in Vermont. Right before Christmas, Jeanne and Tim are struggling in both their marriage and business as they prepare the Evergreen Inn for what they believe to be a final round of guests before they must close the doors for good. Hannah has come to the inn—along with her best friend, Audrey, and her parents—expecting to get married nearby, only to have her fiancé call the wedding off the day before. Molly Winslow, a writer experiencing writer’s block, arrives hoping to complete her children’s book manuscript before a looming deadline. Audrey, who came as a bridesmaid, hopes to see her deployed husband while he is on leave, but the snowstorm prevents him from making it to the hotel. Widower Marcus Andrews has brought his two little girls to the last place they were truly happy before their late mother’s passing. As all the guests arrive, the snowstorm sets in quicker and fiercer than expected. Tim and Jeanne’s hospitality, creativity, ingenuity, and faith ramp up to make it a vacation the guests didn’t know they wanted, but will relish for the rest of their lives. This is a beautiful story about strangers becoming friends during Christmas and having an unexpectedly joyous time. (Oct.)
