Mistletoe and moonshine: a Christmas match made in heaven?.

Moonshine Hollow’s famous ‘Lightning Flash’ might be an acquired taste, although the same could be said for moonshine distillery owner Cole Landon, what with his workaholic habits and ‘Scrooge’ tendencies when it comes to all things Christmassy.
But when Jenna Pendean from Cornwall pays a visit to Cole’s family-run distillery in Tennessee during the holiday season, will Cole’s cynicism about the existence of Christmas miracles be put to the test?

    Angela Britnell’s transatlantic romances are always beautifully crafted with superb story lines and characters. This one was no exception. Christmas at Moonshine Hollow takes Jenna to Tennessee and a moonshine distillery this time. A great story and one I can highly recommend.

    Another lovely Cornwall/Tennessee mashup from Angela Britnell, this time played out on the other side of the pond and at Christmas. Before our hero and heroine get to live happily ever after, however, they have to negotiate a minefield of secrets and deceit, and decide whether to hide from their pasts or bring everything into the open.
    A delightfully festive tale that has a bit of everything, even Dickens.

    Cole Landon made moonshine from his great grandfathers recipe and had a good business and his cousin conducted tours of facility with tastings. Christmas was not Coles favorite time but he was in for a surprise this year. Jenna Pendean from Cornwall is paying a visit to unearth the truth about her great grandfather who’s name was on a document she found regarding the moonshine recipe. There are many surprising twists to the story but it really is about family helping each other and finding love when it was not expected. Great story, relevant with moonshine becoming popular, and great cast of characters. Highly recommend this story.

    This book is set in Tennessee and has everything! Romance in buckets, family tensions, a broken marriage and hero and heroine who feel like friends by the end. The way Angela writes takes you to the heart of all the characters, I felt like I was hearing about people I knew. The process of making Moonshine was new to me and I found it very interesting. Yes, I guessed the ending but the route there I didn’t guess! Sit down with some chocolate, immerse yourself in a great story and lose yourself for a while.

    A transatlantic romance between Jenna & Cole. Cole runs a Moonshine distillery in Tennessee (originally owned by his great grandfather). Jenna is visiting from England and is taking a tour round the distillery. Her grandfather was involved in the Moonshine business and Jenna is trying to find out why he was never acknowledged for his original recipe. There is an instant spark between them and a relationship ensues but will the past threaten their happiness?
    The characters Jenna & Cole are very relatable. I like the way they support each other but are also honest about their feelings. It was easy to read and I think there could easily be a sequel set in Cornwall.

    Ms Britnell has mastered the art of the cross Atlantic romance, I always enjoy her books, and this one was no exception. Our visit to a moonshine distillery was interesting (I’d really like to try a couple of samples), and though I had completely decided which way the story would unfold – I was wrong! However, it is a good story and I can recommend the read.

    Angela’s books are always a treat and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint. Cole is a workaholic trying to keep his family’s distillery afloat in Tennessee, which was founded by his grandfather illegally. Jenna is a visitor from the U.K. with secrets which could destroy any hope of a romance or even friendship. Beautifully written novel that tugs on your heart strings and in a great location. Fabulous read – highly recommend!

    Jenna Pendean travels from Cornwall to Tennessee, arriving just before Thanksgiving. She plans to stay a couple of weeks in an attempt to gain acknowledgment for her great-grandfather’s recipe of Lightning Flash, an illegal moonshine brewed during the American prohibition.

    Landon Hollow Distillery, where Lightning Flash is now legally, and very successfully, produced, is run by Cole Landon the great-grandson of Tucker’s old partner.

    Jenna takes a tour of the distillery and she meets Cole who’s acting as the tour guide during the busiest time before Christmas.

    When Jenna pays particular attention to the original framed recipe for Lightning Flash, Cole becomes suspicious, wondering if she might be a spy trying to acquire his trade secrets.

    Both Cole and Jenna have secrets that could damage their new found relationship, but with Christmas around the corner all is needed is some seasonal magic to bring these two people together. And plenty of mistletoe to assist the magic.
