Merriment and mayhem collide for a chaotic holiday season at the Inn at Hope Springs Farms.

Join three intriguing young women in their search for happily ever after.

My thoughts about Mistletoe and Wedding Bells ~~

(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 lines.)

First lines—"The sound of bells ringing in the distance silences the crowd. Families with young children migrate to the edge of the stone terrace, looking out into the inky darkness toward the mountains."

Mistletoe and Wedding Bells is the perfect story to read right now. It's full of Christmas, weddings, friendships, and love. I just finished reading books 1-3 of this amazing series to prepare for book #4, which comes out in January. This was a wonderful way to read these books. I became totally immersed in Stella's life and the interesting world and people of Hope Springs. Stella unexpectedly inherits her father's property and we get to watch as she struggles with trying to make it a success. Friendsand enemiesare made as she pour her heart and soul into the place. 

The women of the Hope Spring Inn bond together and help each other through the tough times. It was wonderful watching relationships develop, some for the good and somenot so much. I came to feel like I was a part of the group and enjoyed my time at the Inn so much. 

I absolutely love this series and highly recommend it. I'm excited for book #4 to hit the shelves!

Books #1 and #2 of the Hope Springs series.

Book #4 ~ Pub date January 4!
