A new series you won't want to miss! 

To save their small town from dying...they need a miracle...

When Ashley Tanner made a promise, she never broke it. Ever. So when she promised to find a way as Mayor, to revitalize their small mountain town, she planned to keep it. Until the promise she made to her husband to put them first got in the way.

Torn, Ashley is forced to make a choice she never wanted to make: her marriage or her town.

After two years of searching for an answer to saving her town, two options drop in her lap. Become a retirement village or re-invent Innsbruck to resemble a full-time Bavarian Christmas town.

The answer seems clear but is it worth the destruction of her marriage?

My thoughts about The Promise of Christmas ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"There's no place like home. No place like home. No place like home. Home meant Innsbruck, with streets full of alpine cabins and flower gardens, walkways lined with cobblestone and unique mailboxes."

First of all, isn't this cover amazing? I think it is so beautiful!

I absolutely love stories centered around the Christmas season. And I also love stories about small communities pulling together to make their town better. The Promise of Christmas has all of this and so much more.

I immediately fell in love with Ashley and this little community of Innsbruck. As Ashley struggles to keep her promise to the town she loves, she also struggles with the one person she is supposed to love. Will her decision make or break her marriage?

The Promise of Christmas has great characters and is wonderfully written. I found myself wishing I could become a part of the community and call these people my friends. I loved how the town pulled together to create their own little Christmas village. How amazing would that be—Christmas everyday?

And this is just the beginning. I'm so excited to read more in this series to see what else they have planned and to learn more about the people of Innsbruck.
