What a fun, contemporary Christmas novella! I really liked the setting at the lodge and cabin at Christmastime. It made for a cozy read.
Ashlyn and Jake were both interesting characters. Ashlyn experienced a lot of emotional and spiritual growth throughout the novella. She began the story as a fairly jaded person who had been wounded in the past. She had a worldly perspective about what was important in life. I liked seeing Ashlyn’s heart and entire demeanor soften as she spent time with Jake and learned more about her Mamie’s life experiences.
I definitely recommend A Holiday Heart for those looking for an uplifting Christmas themed story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
On the verge of starting her own company—and a fling with the hot star of a TV saga—Atlanta film makeup artist Ashlyn Jennings is willed a mysterious box containing a key from her grandmother’s estate. Mamie Lou, the former Hollywood B-lister who inspired Ashlyn’s path in life, always demonstrated a flair for the dramatic. But did Mamie Lou really expect her to put everything on hold to clean out a mountain cabin no one even knew about? And right at Christmas?
When Ashlyn arrives at White Falls Lodge armed with cosmetic bags and designer shoes, little is she prepared to be stranded by a snow storm, irritated by the handsome resort owner who seems determined to peel away her facade, and redirected by a God Ashlyn wants to forget, through Mamie Lou’s real gift … the secret story of her grandmother’s past.
