    One thought on “Mistletoe at Moonglow”

    1. I would have preferred to give this 3 1/2 stars. It deserved better than a 3 but not as good as a 4. I liked the story which was a Christmas vignette, a snapshot so to speak, a moment in time of a particular group of people. We have little knowledge of their lives prior to this point nor are we given any indications of where their futures lie. This type of literary motif does not lend itself to character development. All involvement is superficial. This is not a criticism of the writing only the [...]

    2. This novella was odd in that there was no real story here. Just a glimpse of a bunch of unrelated people together for the holidays, with descriptions of food and decorations. And the main character was somehow an artist, a florist, and a chef all rolled into one. Reading this reminded me of putting on a DVD of a roaring fireplace. No real substance, just atmosphere.

    3. Christmas at the Timberton Hotel is special. The beauty and peace people find there is magic. Strangers come to escape their pain and find solace and strength. I loved this story. It gave me a sense of hope. The characters are amazing. Mist is a special person. She has an instinct that helps her sense people's needs and the knowledge to sooth their pain. If you're looking for a story that highlights the meaning of the holiday season, Mistletoe At Moonglow is the perfect story. When I finished, I [...]

    4. I love everything Christmas—the meaning, spirit, decorations, carols, and other festivities. It is a special time of year that brings people together, warming hearts and hearth with love, giving, and joy.Those are the feelings I experienced while reading this charming Christmas tale. It’s as if I just spent the holidays with an intriguing and diverse cast of people, and brought a piece of them back home with me. I adore the people who shared Christmas with Mist, Betty, and Clive at the Timbe [...]

    8. I read this book before reading The Moonglow Cafe where the characters are first introduced, but it didn't matter. The characters are richly described, as is the setting of Timberton, MT.

The guests who check into the hotel for Christmas all come with something weighing on their hearts. During the course of their stay, they get to know one another, are comforted [...]

    9. The reader should know what to expect from a this kind novel. Mistletoe at Moonglow is a short and warm Christmas story. Strangers with different stories, snow outside, good food, friendship. I think this is what you expect from a Christmas story. However there should have been more actions in the story, it's too slow.

    11. The first thing I decided to do after reading this book, was check myself into the Timberton Hotel. I want Mist to cook for me and be her friend. I know what you are thinking. This is a fiction book and there is no Timberton Hotel. But the author did such an amazing job of making the hotel sound inviting, I wish it were a real place. It is nestled in a beautiful town in Montana with a breathtaking view. I could picture the hotel as guests walked in. The smells of fresh flowers and pine cones fil [...]

    12. Mistletoe at Moonglow: A Christmas Novella is by Deborah Garner. It is a really cute novella about the true meaning of Christmas. It takes place at the Timberton Hotel in Timberton, Montana.

    13. I really enjoyed this book. Keep in mind, this is a short novella, only 12 chapters long, so I was able to read it on the 6 hour trip home after being gone for Thanksgiving, but it was such a good book, none the less! I enjoyed learning about Mist, Betty and Clive, as well as the other hotel guests.

I love that she gave each of the guests a gift made by her, and she got [...]

    14. Mistletoe at Moonglow is my first foray into Deborah Garner books and this is short novella, one thing that struck me that about it is that it didn't seem to have any particular plot line at all but yet it was still engaging enough to keep you reading. I felt there was very little back story of any of the characters to give me a feel for what has happened, especially to Mist, prior to ending up at the Timberton hotel. The guest who all arrived to spend Christmas at the hotel all have an air of s [...]

    16. This will be the first Christmas for Mist at the Timberton Hotel. She has recently opened the Moonglow Café inside the hotel, and has already become indispensable to Betty, the hotel owner. There was just something about Mist that made the townspeople comfortable around her. The hotel usually had the same people check in every Christmas like clockwork. But this year, each had something weighing heavy on them, and it would take more than a regular Christmas to heal them. Luckily, Mist is up for [...]

    17. A VERY SWEET GIFT! I enjoyed reading Deborah Garner’s Moonglow Café set in Timberton, Montana a couple of years ago with Paige MacKenzie as the main character.

    18. More a long vignette than a full story in its own right, Mistletoe At Moonglow is nonetheless perfect seasonal fare to get readers into the Christmas spirit.

It treads a fine line of sweetness, never slipping over into sickly(!) and I thought the [...]
