The Wallace Gallery’s Christmas charity gala is approaching and Charlotte Moore is given her dream job.  She is the lead buyer for the gala.  While at the auction, everything is sold, she bids on the last painting, of a beautiful sunset, even though it is not signed.  Charlotte wants to know the history of the painting, and travels to the picturesque coastal town of Seabreeze in New England.   She stays at the quaint and cozy Cove Hill Inn, which is decorated for Christmas inside and out.  The magic of Christmas fills the air, with the twinkling lights, and the scent of warm cookies fresh out of the oven.  The snow is falling outside and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.  Charlotte is snowed in and that brings her purpose for being there to an abrupt halt.  She meets the innkeeper, Aiden Bennett, and with the magic of Christmas and the local Christmas fair in full swing, this visit to the coast is exactly what she needed.  

The Christmas Promise written by author Lindsay Gibson, is a magical Christmas story that I couldn't wait to jump into.  This new author is automatically a favorite.  Her writing style is smooth and enjoyable and makes it easy for the reader to fly through the pages.  This is an unputdownable story that I absolutely loved.  This story has all the feels and then some.  It wraps you up and warms your heart like your favorite Christmas pajamas on a cold winter night.   Grab your fuzzy slippers, pour the hot cocoa and curl up in your comfy chair.  This magical read will propel you into the Christmas season and make you want to put up the tree and the twinkle lights.  This cozy story is an absolute must read, from its vivid description of the quaint town of Seabreeze to the phenomenal ending.  This would make a lovely Christmas movie.  I highly recommend this wonderful story, I loved everything about it.

Art buyer Charlotte Moore is given the chance of a lifetime to be head buyer for the esteemed Wallace Gallery’s Christmas charity gala. But when she arrives at auction, after the most prominent pieces are all bought up, in a panic, she bids on the final painting—an unsigned sunset landscape she’s nearly sure her boss will despise.

To save her job, she finds herself in the beautifully festive New England coastal town of Seabreeze, the setting of the painting. When a nor’easter blows through, she’s stuck at the adorable Cove Hill Inn, all decorated for the holiday and brimming with Christmas magic. While it’s not an awful place to be snowed in, her ability to work is at a standstill, with the gala looming closer.

And she isn’t expecting to meet the innkeeper’s soon, ruggedly handsome 
Aiden Bennett, a distraction she definitely doesn’t need. Even the inn’s cherry scones and the town’s Christmas fair are no match for Aiden’s charm.

However, when she uncovers a family secret that could impact everyone, including herself and Aiden, it might shake up more than just the holiday. Under the shimmer of the town twinkle lights and the snow-covered Christmas trees, will Charlotte find the answers she’s looking for? Or has she unearthed something else entirely?
