Nutcracker Sweets at Moonglow

NEW RELEASE….
The small Montana town of Timberton has a way of bringing magic to the holidays, especially for guests of the local hotel. Resident artist and chef Mist has a way of touching people’s lives with exquisite cuisine, imaginative art, and her own ethereal nature. 


When a nearby theatre burns down just before Christmas, cast members of The Nutcracker arrive at the Timberton Hotel with only a sliver of holiday joy. Camaraderie, compassion, and shared inspiration combine to help at least one hidden dream come true.

Mistletoe at Moonglow, The Moonglow Series, Book 1 
 
The Timberton Hotel has always provided a perfect Christmas retreat for regular guests, as well as newcomers. But the small town of Timberton, Montana, hasn’t been the same since resident chef and artist, Mist, arrived, bringing a unique new age flavor to the old western town.

When guests check in for the holidays, they bring along worries, fears and broken hearts, unaware that Mist has a way of working magic in people’s lives. Old-fashioned time spent together, exquisite food, conversation and a snowball or two offer guests a chance to trade sadness for hope. One thing is certain: no matter how cold winter’s grip is on each guest, no one leaves Timberton without a warmer heart.

Silver Bells at Moonglow by [Garner, Deborah]
Silver Bells at Moonglow, The Moonglow Series, Book 2 
 
Christmas at the Timberton Hotel arrives each year with a unique set of guests, some returning, some new. When this holiday brings a celebrity seeking reprieve, sisters who are distant yet closer to each other than they think, a widow approaching a new horizon, and an eclectic smattering of local townsfolk and visiting relatives, the season is certain to be eventful. Add in a hint of romance and there’s more than snow in the air around the small Montana town.

Elegant decor and exquisite cuisine from resident artist and chef, Mist, form a backdrop to much needed camaraderie, bringing strangers and friends together. When the last note of Christmas carols has faded away, the soft whisper of silver bells from the front door’s wreath will usher guests and townsfolk alike back into the world with hope for the coming year.

Gingerbread at Moonglow, The Moonglow Series, Book 3
The small town of Timberton, Montana, boasts an ambiance of near-magical proportions during the Christmas season, due in no small part to resident artist and chef Mist’s mysterious way of working small miracles in people’s everyday lives. Each year, return guests and new arrivals mingle with local townsfolk to enjoy companionship, exquisite decor, and exceptional cuisine at The Timberton Hotel.


As the aromas of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and molasses mix with heartfelt camaraderie and sweet romance, guests share reflections on family, friendship, and life. Although decorating the outside of a gingerbread house may prove easier than deciding what goes inside, no one leaves Timberton without renewed hope for the future.

I have read and loved everyone of the Moonglow series but do not wait until you have time to read the whole series to get started. Nutcracker Sweets at Moonglow can be read as a standalone and you will not need to worry about the previous three. My guess is, once you’ve had a taste of the Moonglow series, you will want to read them all.
While I would not say I’m a gypsy type person, I love Mist’s way of bringing art and longing into everyone at the TImberton Inn’s life, whether you are a guest or a townsperson. She paints, she sews, she cooks. All of these are ways her art is given to everyone. I particularly love the small paintings she does for everyone staying at the Inn for Christmas.
Add to this a cookie exchange that you are given all the recipes for and you have a picture perfect Christmas at the Timberton. I cannot wait to try some of these recipes this year.
Get in the holiday spirit! Pick up a copy of Nutcracker Sweets at Moonglow and give it a read. You’ll be ready to bake and decorate for Christmas in no time. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
