A snow globe that grants wishes.
A love that’s meant to be.
Evergreen, Vermont is about to be in the rear-view mirror of Allie Shaw’s vintage red pickup truck. It’s hard to say goodbye to her small town and her veterinarian practice, but she’s moving to Washington D.C., where her big-city-loving boyfriend lives.
Ever since Ryan Bellamy’s wife died, he hardly knows how to celebrate Christmas. He’s decided to take his daughter Zoe to Florida, and Evergreen is just a quick stop on the way to the airport. While they’re there, Zoe partakes in a local tradition, making a Christmas wish on the snow globe at the town diner.
But neither Allie’s nor Ryan’s Christmas goes as planned. They’ve checked their wish lists twice, and they didn’t say anything about meeting someone new…or about a fresh chance at love.

My Rating: 4.5 stars
In my life it is never to early to begin planning or thinking about this year’s Christmas celebration. Heck, the only thing I buy on the day after Christmas sales madness are tree lights, because you can never have too many strings of lights around the house. So when I saw a Hallmark Christmas Movie Book being released in July… you can bet your mistletoe I was on that like snowflakes in a snow-globe.
Christmas In Evergreen takes a fun, romantic and Christmas-y look at the priorities in life, the changes we make not for ourselves but because it seems the right thing to do at the moment. Allie is leaving her small home town and heading to the big city to be with her on again – off again boyfriend… mainly because he’s big city all the way. It seemed the right decision at the time, but now as that date comes closer and the reality is truly setting in Allie is no longer quite so certain. Add into the mix a sweet, lovable little girl, her handsome widowed father and one legendary magical snow-globe and you can never tell what fate will have in store.
Ryan and his daughter, Zoe are headed to Florida for a cruise that neither one really wants but… without his wife in their lives Ryan doesn’t really know how to celebrate Christmas anymore. It seemed like Zoe was up for the cruise but… she’s just putting up a front for her father. A quick side trip to the small town of Evergreen is an eye opener in many ways. And once Zoe makes a wish on the town’s famous snow-globe, well, things begin to fall into place in an unusual fashion. Discovering Allie was probably the best part of it all, but can three people snowed in and kept from their original plans find a small romantic, family oriented Christmas miracle of their own?
I loved this Christmas Romance so much. Ryan and Allie fit perfectly although it may take a little bit of time for them to figure that out for the long term. Zoe is adorable and often steals the scenes she’s in. She just wants her dad to be happy again, and Allie certainly does make him happy. If you adore anything Christmas, love to get lost in a Holiday romance at any time of the year… and believe you can never have enough Christmas tree lights then you’ll love Christmas In Evergreen. It’s a lighthearted, fun romance with some very special touches. I completely enjoyed my time in this world and wish I could go back for another visit soon.
