cranberryAbout the Book
Piper Chesterfield lives a glamorous life travelling the world and reviewing the finest hotels. She calls nowhere home, she works alone and that’s how she likes it. For long ago Piper decided that to protect her heart she should lock it away.

So when Piper’s next assignment brings her to the newly opened Stardust Lake Hotel for the festive season, the last person she expects to face is Gabe Whitaker, the man who broke her heart so completely she could never love again.

But Piper isn’t the only one who has been frozen in time by heartbreak. Gabe hasn’t forgotten the golden-eyed girl who disappeared from his world without a trace.

Now fate has reunited them on Juniper island, can the magic of Christmas heal old wounds? And can this enchanting town be the one place Piper can finally call home?

My Review

What a perfect read to get you into the holiday spirit! From the cover, the cozy vibes of Stardust Lake Hotel and a heart-warming romance, I enjoyed Christmas Under a Cranberry Sky from start to finish. I loved the setting, and the backstory between Piper and Gabe was heartbreaking yet hopeful at the same time. There was plenty of interesting characters, including Gabe’s adorable daughter, and fun little plot twists along the way. If you are building your holiday reading list, make sure to add this one.
