Review:

Warm fuzzy feelings are what I felt reading “A Season For Hope” by Tammy L Grace and I wanted to dive right into The Magic of the Season which is the second book of the series.

This book is a lovely story that takes place during the holidays and reminds us of the reason for the season. Taking care of one another and helping those in need is what the town of Silver Falls is all about. I want to move there because this is the kind of town I want to live in!

I will be thinking about this book and it’s characters as I prepare for the holidays this year.

This is the first book I have read by Tammy L. Grace and it certainly won’t be the last. I’m going to start The Magic of the Season right now! If you love a good Christmas story, this one is for you!

The Magic of the Season

Expected Release Date: October 24, 2019

Summary:

Will a city girl forced to spend the holidays in her small hometown recapture the magic of the season?

Madison hasn’t visited Silver Falls since she left the snowy mountain winters behind for the beaches of California twenty years ago. In the midst of the annual Christmas festival, an accident forces her to return and manage her mom’s candy business at the Sugar Shop.

Grant hasn’t seen her since she left for college, but remembers spending summers at the lake with the skinny, plain girl he and everyone used to know as Sugar. The contemporary advertising executive he encounters now is anything but plain.

Will Grant’s kindness, the charm of Silver Falls, and the caring community open Sugar’s heart to all she’s been missing?

The best-selling author of A Season for Hope, the tale readers describe as the perfect Christmas story, delivers a touching sequel with the second in her Christmas in Silver Falls series in this new festive novella that pairs perfectly with a cup of cocoa in front of a blazing fire.

Review:

Ahhhhhh!! That was such a wonderful story. It was wholesome, full of values and an all around satisfying read. If you’ve read any of Tammy L Grace’s novels and enjoyed them, I guarantee you will enjoy this story just as much. If not, this would be a great start.

When I started The Magic of the Season, I was surprised because Madison was the character who started the story; and we hadn’t met her yet. I wanted to continue with Dottie, Grant, Drew, Hope and Jake! Boy, was I happy when I turned the page to chapter two and there was the Fisher family! I love this family, all their dogs and the town of Silver Falls.

Tammy did a great job developing her characters. You forget you’re reading a book because you’re immediately immersed in the town and all of the people.

I’m sad thinking I’ll have to wait a whole year for another installment of Christmas in Silver Falls.

These books would make great stocking stuffers for anyone who loves to read!

Both Receive 5 Stars.

I received a copy of these books from the author in exchange for fair and honest reviews.

Review:

“Magic of the Season” by Tammy L. Grace is a true romance that captured me from the beginning. Based in Silver Falls, this town is a great place with characters that will draw you in and make you not want to stop reading.
The first book in the Series, “A Season of Hope”, tells the beginning of the story and this is a continuance of this gorgeous town and it’s wonderful characters. I felt like I was there with them.
Sugar is a character that is easy to love and from her arrival I wondered about how the story would end. Would she see the “Magic of the Season” in Silver Falls?
Being a Christmas Novella, I found myself looking forward to the holiday coming up in a few months.
Smiling as I read, it did not disappoint and I would definitely recommend it.

 

5 Stars.

Tammy L. Grace captured my heart from the beginning of this Christmas Romance Novella. Hope’s story tugged at my heart strings throughout this book.
The characters were well written and developed and though their personalities were all so different, the way they were weaved together was great.
I absolutely loved this story and will definitely be reading more of Tammy L Grace’s books. I was teary eyed at the end but…… were they happy tears or were they sad tears? Grab this book and find out for yourself.
