Tangled Tinsel

When I found out that Wendy Knight had written a Christmas book and that it would be releasing this year instead of next year as she had originally planned I got excited. Then she asked if anyone wanted to read an advance copy. My hand shot up, waved frantically in the air, while in a high pitched voice I called out, “me, me, oh pick me!” or I just sent her a message telling her that I would love to read it. Either way I got an advance copy of Tangled Tinsel and just finished reading it.

Before I give you my thoughts on this book let me share the blurb and cover with you.

Of all the trains in all the world…
Greyson Luca just wanted to go home for Christmas. He did not want to run into the ex he’d never gotten over, and he did not want to see the giant engagement ring on her finger.
He also did not want to get stranded at an adorable bed and breakfast.
Stranded at an adorable bed and breakfast with her.
But Grey isn’t getting everything he thinks he wants this Christmas.
He’s getting everything he needs.
And that is so much better.

Isn’t that cover pretty?

 This book was such a fun and lovely read. I haven’t finished a book in a long time but this one, I didn’t want to put down, I did in order to make dinner for the family, and then once again to make some hot chocolate but then I went right back to reading. I had to find out how it was all going to unfold. I love that none of Wendy’s characters are ever perfect. Grey has his flaws, Red (Charlotte) has her flaws as well but it works. When reading this book, reading about these characters you can picture them as real people. These could be your neighbors, your cousins, or coworkers which makes the story that more enjoyable. I adored the setting of the story. While Grey, Charlotte, and Noah are all heading home for Christmas their train has to make an unscheduled stop due to the blizzard. They end up staying at the Huckleberry Falls Bed and Breakfast. It would be a perfect place to spend Christmas if you weren’t in a hurry to get home, or stuck with your ex but even then it just might be the perfect place.

I can see this as a Hallmark Channel Christmas movie. I hope someday it catches the attention of someone over there and that becomes a reality. Meanwhile though, you can all get your copy tomorrow Wednesday December 11!

You can find Wendy Knight on Amazon and grab your copy of Tangled Tinsel tomorrow. Unfortunately it isn’t up for preorder.

    That’s a great premise for a cool holiday story.
    And, I agree … it would make a great Hallmark film.
    I think trains make an awesome setting for part of the plotine.
