Today’s book review features
Christmas in the Alps by Melody Carlson.
After a time of heartache and loss, Simone Winthrop discovers a tantalizing letter from her French great-grandmother, which seems to suggest that she is heir to a family treasure. Ever practical, Simone assumes the claim is baseless, but her best friend encourages her to find out for sure. Despite her deep-rooted fear of flying, Simone boards a jet to travel to Paris at Christmastime to uncover the truth.
During the long flight, Simone meets the charming Kyle Larsson, who’s on his way to France to become an apprentice clockmaker. Though they abruptly part ways, an unexpected rendezvous in the French Alps at Simone’s family’s clock factory may lead to the discovery of the family treasure . . . and so much more.
For anyone who is wearying of staying home, Melody Carlson invites you to spend Christmas with her in the beautiful French Alps this year. So pull on your mittens, tie your scarf tight, and prepare yourself for a magical mountain holiday.
A Christmas in the Alps is my first Christmas novella of the season. It was a delightful, easy read with a gorgeous setting. I loved how Simone and Kyle met and how the drama unfolded. Albeit a tad predictable, the Christmasy vibe and international setting carried the story. This is the type of book I look forward to rereading around Christmas, with a mug of hot cocoa and a fire crackling in the fireplace to complete the experience.
If you’re looking for a sweet, Hallmark romance this holiday season, I’d highly recommend Christmas in the Alps.
