#BookReview CHRISTMAS AT MOONSHINE HOLLOW by ANGELA BRITNELL

ABOUT THE BOOK


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?

MY REVIEW

I was in need of a pick me up read, and this was absolutely blooming perfect for that!! There’s just something about those Southern men that Angela writes about that I can’t help falling for!!

Over in Tennesse, we get to visit the family distillery that Cole runs. A real workaholic so with Christmas approaching his family are getting to his scrooge like tendencies again! They just want him to have a bit of fun but he feels the pressure keeping up the good work that previous generations worked so hard for!

Jenna is over in Tennesse on ‘holiday’ but she’s actually searching for answers after she discovered something in her family history that has left her with many questions but she soon finds herself under the spell of Cole when she has a tour of the distillery, and the feeling is mutual!

These two together are just so much fun – there seems to be a pretty strong connection from the start with them. They just get on so well and have some really good banter… alcohol does play a part!! What do you expect when a book is set at a distillery?!!

As Jenna starts to spend more time at the distillery helping out with the tours, she begins to see how things work behind the scenes which leaves her with a dilemma concerning her quest to solve her family puzzle!

It’s fun, flirty, festive and fabulous!!

#GuestPost CHRISTMAS AT MOONSHINE HOLLOW by ANGELA BRITNELL #PublicationDay @ChocLituk @AngelaBritnell

Always a delight to have a guest post for a Publication Day release, so very happy to hand over the reigns for Books and Me! today to ANGELA BRITNELL on release day for CHRISTMAS AT MOONSHINE HOLLOW!!  


Over to you Angela….

Thank you for inviting me to pop in and say hello to your readers on publication day. I know there are tons of new Christmas books out already or set to be released but I’m almost certain mine is the only one set in Tennessee moonshine distillery!

I’ve been intrigued by the history of illegal southern moonshiners ever since watching an American television show featuring heavily bearded men making moonshine in the woods that they sold covertly in Mason jars while trying to avoid the law. Cole Landon, my fictional moonshine distiller, is the modern legal version of his notorious great-grandfather “Lightening” Landon who certainly fitted the od-time mould. Cole is as proud of his product as his notorious relative ever was and will do anything to save his business when it comes under threat. Research is always an interesting aspect of writing but in this case it proved to be enjoyable too because I needed to visit a real live distillery. The Leiper’s Fork Distillery is only a few miles from my house and although they make whiskey as opposed to moonshine the process is very similar and the owner/distiller has a real passion for his craft that he was happy to share.

Today I’ll raise a glass to the countless generations of Tennessee moonshiners because without them I wouldn’t have a story!
