Stella Fisher is working and living in London as a writer and researcher.  Her dad passed away and this is “the year of firsts” without him.  She returns home to Leipers Fork, Tennessee to help her mother navigate the first Christmas without her father. Stella isn’t looking forward to the trip home for many reasons.  One is the fact that her younger sister Lily eloped, and the last person she expected to see is Henry Dutton, the man she left behind. With his cold and stand-offish reception she is ready to turn around and head right back to London.  She soon realizes that the reason she is there is to help her mother, so, leaving in an instant may be what she wants to do but exactly what she cannot do.  She enjoys the holiday season with the snow falling ever so beautifully in her picturesque town.  The lights twinkling inside the homes and businesses and the buzz of the locals on the streets, maybe this is exactly the kind of Christmas she needed.  

Meet Me at Christmas by author Jenny Hale is the perfect Christmas story I have been waiting for all year.  Hale does it again, with a perfectly written story of making you feel like you just walked into Christmas.  At the turn of each page, all my senses were sent into overdrive.  With the sights, sounds, and feels of Christmas it made me want to start unpacking the decorations and put up the tree.   This story has all the feels from laughter, love, tears and of course the smell of fresh cookies.  I loved everything about this book, especially the detailed description of Leipers Fork, Tennessee. I am so ready for the Christmas season to begin and now that I read Jenny Hale’s new Christmas book the snow can start falling.  This unputdownable story played out like a warm and cozy movie in my mind.  This book would make a wonderful gift for yourself and all of your friends and family that love to read.  This is definitely going to be a repeat read for me.  I loved everything about this book and I highly recommend it.

Traveling writer and researcher Stella Fisher is working in London when she's called home to her family’s farmhouse in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee to help her mother through the first Christmas without her father. Compounding the situation, her younger sister Lily has run off to get married without telling anyone.

When Stella arrives home, she doesn’t expect to find 
Henry Dutton, the man she’d left behind. As she could guess, after her heartbreaking exit so many years ago, he isn’t speaking to her. What she doesn’t realize, however, is there’s a much bigger reason to blame for his unfriendly reception. She quickly becomes the one person he believes can fix everything, but she isn’t sure about that. She thought she’d buried her past, yet the look in his alluring blue eyes brings it all right back to the surface.

Under the glitter of the holiday trees at the local lot called Christmas, Stella uncovers more than she’d ever imagined. Will she be able to return to her old life? Or will the unexpected be the biggest Christmas gift of all?
