Christmas at the Murphy household has always been a big deal, but with her daughters getting older, Kacie Murphy is feeling a bit sentimental, so she decides to give her family the perfect Christmas.
Plans of cookie baking, sleigh ride taking, and snowman making are quickly put in jeopardy when Kacie receives devastating news—her mom has sold the beloved Cranberry Inn.
Not one to let his wife stay sad for long, hockey hunk and husband extraordinaire, Brody Murphy, hatches the ultimate surprise to save Kacie’s perfect Christmas.
When fate and the weather threaten his plans once again, Brody, Viper and Andy might just have to phone in a favor to Santa himself to save Christmas at the Cranberry Inn.
*This low-angst, heartwarming novella of family and Christmas is the final farewell of the Cranberry Inn gang that readers have grown to love over the years.
When it comes to this entire series of books (Cranberry Inn, Viper’s Heart, Even the Score) I have to say I love them all, and A Cranberry Inn Christmas is no exception. A Cranberry Inn Christmas is not as standalone, it’s a companion to the series, a true gift from Beth to her fans and the perfect conclusion to this series. Ever since I read Cranberry Inn, I’ve been ridiculously invested in these characters lives. Not only Brody and Kacie, but also Viper, Micelle, Andy, Dani, even Darla. Well, guess what? We see plenty of all of them in this book.
In A Cranberry Inn Christmas, Kacie wants to give her family the perfect Christmas. With the twins getting older and things changing, she wants this Christmas to be extra special, that is until she receive some unexpected news that change everything, her mom has sold the Inn! Brody, being the awesome husband that he is, comes up with a plan to save Christmas and truly make it the perfect holiday. Of course Brody can’t do it alone so he enlists the help of the entire gang!
This was super sweet, it was also a fast, short read, which is perfect for a Christmas novella. We get to have one last chance to hang out with these characters that have become beloved to us and it’s great. I also love that is told in multiple POVs, mostly Brody and Kacie’s but also Andy, Viper and Michelle. We still get to see the struggles of playing hockey and trying to still be present for the important family milestones. There’s a lot of swoony moments, hello, it’s Brody Murphy! And lots of funny situations, especially when all the girls get together, and tons of other funny moments thanks to Viper Clause. lol, yes, Viper Clause! Also, there’s some additional surprises and an epilogue that will make you swoon!!!!
I truly loved everything of A Cranberry Inn Christmas. If you’ve read all the books, you must pick this one up this holiday season, and if you haven’t read Beth’s books, what are you waiting for? The Cranberry Inn series is Kacie and Brody’s story and starts with Room for You
, the Viper books (my personal favorites) start with Cement Heart
, and Andy’s book which is Even the Score
. I absolutely recommend all, you will not be disappointed!
