A snow-covered log cabin surrounded by Christmas trees brings plenty of surprises for Holly … do you believe in Christmas miracles?

Holly is looking for a change and even though not everyone agrees with her career choices, she’s determined there’s more to this life than the long hours she works as an editor in New York City. What she doesn’t expect is to meet Mitch, a recluse who’s hiding more than she realises.

Mitch spends his days hidden away in a little log cabin in the woods out in Inglenook Falls where he owns a Christmas tree farm. He speaks to people only when and if it’s necessary, so when Holly falls into his life, he’s not sure how to react. All he knows is that something needs to change if he ever wants to get his life back on track.

Along with friends Cleo and Darcy, Holly is determined to bring joy back to Mitch’s life, but will he appreciate their interference? And when a business proposition throws everything up in the air, will it do more harm than good and ruin lives forever?

Both Holly and Mitch must learn that on the surface people aren’t always what they seem…but if you dig a little deeper, they can take you by surprise.

Review 2017

Holly has given up her high powered, well-paid job to go follow her dream and work as a freelance photographer. Her first assignment is at the luxurious hotel in Inglenook Falls, New York, which is run by her boyfriend.

She decides to stay with old family friends and on her first day out looking to take photos she comes across a gorgeous, picture perfect log cabin. She just can’t help herself and starts taking pictures. However, the owner is a bit of a recluse and startles Holly as she thinks he’s a bear and ends up knocking herself out.

After being a gentleman and helping Holly to recover, Mitch, the owner of the cabin, sees her home, but people are shocked to discover that she has been in Mitch’s house as there are lots of rumours about the man, none nice. Holly though is sure the rumours are just that and is determined to help the man lose his bad image and give him some festive cheer.

Christmas Miracles at the Little Log Cabin is the fourth book in the New York Ever After series and the first that I have read, in fact, it is the first book by Helen J Rolfe that I have read.

The book starts off slowly as we witness Holly’s last day at work and her nerves at going it alone. If I’m perfectly honest, I nearly gave up just a couple of chapters in as I felt like I was getting lots of information but not much story. The plot comes alive when Holly and Mitch meet and for me, this is when the story really picked up and got interesting.

Both Holly and Mitch are lovely characters. They also have very different personalities which work well together. It was lovely to witness Holly feel a connection to someone and really want to help them out.

There are lots of sensitive issues in the book but all have been handled with care and respect and they don’t overpower the storyline as this is a festive read with plenty of cheer too.

Inglenook Falls sounds like such a beautiful part of New York, far away from the glitz and glamour. It has a caring, tight-knit community who look out for one another.

The book makes you feel warm and cosy inside and really gets you in the festive mood, especially with all the glorious snowy scenes.
