Publisher's Summary

Noelle Wentworth doesn't mind getting away from St. Augustine to fill in at her ailing aunt's candle shop. A few weeks in Snowing Rock will help her get past the humiliating memory lapse that ruined an important piano concert - and, ultimately, her marriage to her overbearing duet partner.

She's mentally rehearsing for her comeback performance when the bus she's riding in slides off an icy mountain road.

And one deep, calming voice emerges from the confusion to slow her racing heart - right before his ruggedly handsome face kicks it back into allegro.

Gabe Waters is usually prepared for anything - as a professional stuntman, his life depends on it - but nothing prepared him for Noelle, the unattainable high school crush whose bravery saved him from more than just a bully's flying fist. There's no hint she recognizes him, but Gabe knows that face, those eyes...and he sees something that wasn't there before. Distrust and apprehension.

Their unexpected attraction kindles something as warm and sweet as a holiday candle. But the weight of their pasts could turn the promise of love to ashes.

A beautiful story

This was a beautiful story with some surprising twists and turns. It has great narration and keeps you interested and at times on the edge of your seat waiting to hear what is going to happen next. I really enjoyed this book and I think others will also.

Sweet and Fun

This is a well-written, well-narrated, sweet book about Noelle, a concert pianist with trust issues, and Gabe, a handsome and caring movie stunt man with health concerns. They meet when he’s the first on the scene following an accident involving the bus on which Noelle is traveling. From that moment on, he’s there whenever she needs him. Can he chip away at Noelle’s injured heart? This is a lovely story, filled with two talented people. Noelle has come to Snowing Rock because her aunt is hospitalized following a nasty fall. Noelle plans to help out in her aunt’s candle shop, until she must return home for a last-chance concert that could make or break her career. The pressure of this makes her desperate to practice as much as possible, but it’s not easy to do with broken pianos, injuries, and that gorgeous guy doing his best to keep her and her piano apart. If you’re looking for a clean, light-hearted, fun audio book with an inspirational message, this would be a good choice for you. I received a free copy of this audio book from the author. While I appreciate her generosity, it had no effect on this review. All opinions in this review reflect my true and honest reactions to listening to this audio book.

Sweet Holiday Romance

Noelle has it all planned out, she will return home to Snowing Rock to help her ailing aunt like a dutiful niece. Then she will return back to the big city and redeem herself as a world renowned pianist. Only there's one problem standing in her way... Gabe Waters. The rugged and handsome man who saved her bus after an accident. Will Noelle be able to hold in her feelings and push through, or will she learn the hard lesson that love concurs all? I really enjoyed this fun and sweet holiday romance. I found many of the characters to be realistic and loveable. The details given by the author were so vivid I felt as though I could picture everything! The only downfall I found was at times the main character, Noelle, seemed very self centered. However, this did not take away from the story. If you enjoy listening to audiobooks I found this narrator to be wonderful. Her voices were distinct and I enjoyed listening to her tell the story. I would definitely recommend Candleglow and Mistletoe.

Sweet small town book

Candleglow and Mistletoe is a charming story set in an idyllic town. The story and characters are interesting and have depth. I appreciate the characters having flaws and problems that real people face - insecurities, trust issues, loss, etc. The story flows nicely and the narrator was great and complemented the story.

Enjoyable romantic second chance romance

A wonderfully well written small town second chance romance. The characters were interesting and relateable. This sweet romantic story was entertaining and an excellent short story about vulnerability and strength with learning to trust again. It included twists and turns along with some mystery as fears and obstacles were overcome to realize they were made for each other. A perfect holiday romance as Noelle wants to prove to the word she is an excellent pianist after a disasterous performance and frighteninghealth scare. Trying to recover from her depression of a horrible performance and a broken marriage, she goes back to Snowing Rock to help her Aunt in her candle store while she recovers from her hip surgery. On the way she is in an accident that Gabe a local who has loved Noelle since high school helps from the icy roads. A wonderful sweet journey as Gabe helps her regain confidence and learns to trust again to their HEA. The narration by Liz Beachel was amazing as you could really feel the emotions and the holiday spirit as described making the storyline even more magical and really made the story come to life. I loved how she was able to brilliantly change her voice so you knew exactly who was talking or thinking.

Will Noelle Ever Trust Again?

Noelle has lost her confidence due to her ex-husband's treatment of her. I too had an ex like that so I completely understood how she felt. Cabe has always loved Noelle but never felt he was good enough for her. How do they meet again and what happens between them? Can she trust Cabe enough to learn to love him or will she run from trust and love again.? I highly recommend this book to you and I know you will enjoy it as much as I have. Get it and read or listen to it yourself so you can find out everything that goes on in this exceptional story.
