Color me a sucker for Hallmark holiday movies and Nancy Naigle's book, Christmas Angels was like reading the script for just that! It ticked every box for me: Restoration of an Inn - check. Romantic man to help with the restoration - check. Small town pitching in - check. Christmas! Check Check Check.  I loved it all! 

Liz has very fond memories of her grandparent's inn and always wanted to own an one just like it. Each night she pores over real estate listings hoping to find something just like

Great story and a sweet romance.
What would you do if you happened upon a family home on the auction block? What would you do if that was your dream home with memories of happy times?

If you were like the main character who had saved for years upon years, you just hop in and buy it and figure it out later. I know that is what I would do.

This story radiates everything that we remember in our happy times with family. Special times with Grandparents and all of those fabulous

Talk about a book that should be made into a movie or even a show. Christmas Angels could be the next Virgin River, but in a limited series form. Thank goodness for an active imagination, because I was able to picture this entire book like it was a movie as I read. Nancy Naigle is gifted with words and Christmas Angels is full of beautiful, developed descriptions that make it all come to life. While I've had this book on my shelf for a while, it wo
Simply magically delightful! A young girl’s memories of happy times and love can become a reality once again as an adult when Fate, or perhaps a Christmas angel give Liz Westmoreland what she always dreamed of, a chance to own the inn her grandparents sold years before. For Liz, it could be a dream come true or her worst nightmare when the man next door steps in to save the day and hopefully rekindle his own childhood dreams.

In my house, it is no secret that I am absolutely obsessed with Christmas movies…especially those on the Hallmark channel, and yes, I watch them all year long. So naturally, when I heard that reading Christmas Angels is reminiscent of those glorious Hallmark movies, I needed this story like my life depended on it.

Liz Westmoreland still remembers the wonderful times she experienced at her grandparents’ inn when she was a little girl. She always felt like her real home was Angel Creek, which was a

I found this to be a very heartwarming book with a sweet romance. In this book, Liz Westmoreland suddenly has the opportunity to buy the inn that was once her grandparents' Bed and Breakfast. It has been her dream to own it one day, and she sets out to start her new life there with joy in her heart. Once she arrives, she finds that the inn has pretty much been gutted, and is far from ready to operate as a Bed and Breakfast.

However, upon visiting, she realizes it is not the same inn she remembers, and a whole lot of work will be needed to restore it.

Is it ever too early to read Christmas books - the correct answer is NO! and I won't take any other.

Christmas Angels is a sweet, beautiful tale of going after your dreams.

Childhood dreams of family and places are what drive our lovely lady Liz. The place radiates everything she has always love and what she has dreamed of for years. And I can't blame her I want to move with her.

And then there is Matt. Oh my gosh, that man! Move over Liz, I am trying

3.5 stars.

Christmas Angels is a sweet, heartwarming, feel-good romance: a nice, light Christmassy read that reminds me of the best aspects of a Hallmark movie.

The book starts off a little slowly, and didn’t really hold my attention until about a quarter to a third of the way in, when the main characters finally start actually working on the lodge renovation. The heroine and hero are both likable, possibly a little too much so. Matt appears to have no flaws and even his sister thinks he is quite

I am a Christmas story lover; so this one was a perfect choice for me. It's funny, that as I am reading the story; in my mind, I kept saying to myself that this would make a perfect Hallmark Christmas movie. Then within the story, the author mentions Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel and I had a good chuckle.

This is a wonderful story about "coming home" again. It is a beautifully written holiday story about 2 people; Liz & Matt, that met as youngsters and then meet again adults; strangel

Oh my, what a sweet book!

Liz Westmoreland, who always dreamed of taking over her grandparents inn in Angels Creek, was overwhelmed when she stumbled upon a listing for the inn, which is going up for auction. Her grandparents had sold it many years ago, much to Liz’s disappointment. She decided to bid on the inn, even though the auction is right away and she doesn’t have time to see it beforehand. To her surprise, she wins the auction and heads to Angels Creek to fulfill her dream. But when she a

Everyone has a place that says “home" to them, where just thinking about it brings back all those wonderful memories and the feelings it evokes wrap around you like a warm blanket. For me, it’s my aunt and uncle's place in New England, and for Liz Westmoreland, it's her grandparents' old bed and breakfast in the small town of Angel Creek, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. When her grandparents' lodge comes up for auction, Liz can't resist bidding on it. When she wins the bid, Liz leaves her j ...more

4 star review of  Christmas Angels by Nancy Naigle
What's not to love? It's the most magical time of the year and also happens to be my most favourite holiday. I love any story that is centred around Christmas; it’s a time for family and friends to get together and celebrate life.      

When I read the blurb I was intrigued and I couldn’t wait to read about Antler Creek and her grandparents inn that Liz Westmoreland manages to purchase at auction.

Returning to the place that holds so many memories
