A rowdy bar owner. A widowed pastor’s wife. And Christmas hope that brings them together.
After widower Eden Snow’s church almost burns to the ground, she’s compelled to find a temporary place to hold services and Christmas cantata practices.
Has-been hockey player, Knox Everhart, has a reputation for being fast on the ice and with women. Except Eden. She’s always been a fascinating mystery to him, which is why he agrees to let her use the back room of his bar—with one rule: No converting his customers.
But when Eden brings the church to the bar, it offers something the bottle can’t. Hope. And he finds himself falling in love with a woman and a Savior he feels unworthy to pursue.
Hope Under Mistletoe begins when Eden has to find a new place to hold church services. She ends up using Knox's bar to hold them. But she never would have imagined the feelings that come with being around Knox more frequently. She must do what's right for herself, and her son. But sometimes that choice is a lot more difficult.
This book was a story about two people falling in love, but also finding their "Faith." It has a lot of meaning in the story, and it was very interesting and heartfelt. I really enjoyed it, but I just wish there had been a little bit more to it, and it had gone a little bit more depth of with the characters. Other than that it was a nice short Christmas story.
