Title: Christmas Angels
Author: Nancy Naigle
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Genre: Contemporary Christmas
Release Date: October 15, 2019
A heartwarming Christmas story filled with the magic and miracles of the holiday season by USA Today Bestselling author, Nancy Naigle.
Growing up, Liz Westmoreland dreamed of taking over her grandparents’ inn located in the small mountain town of Antler Creek only for it to be sold before she ever got the chance. While browsing the internet, she stumbles upon a listing for what looks to be the picturesque inn and it’s set to go to auction. Liz places a bid, and by a miracle, wins the auction. But when she gets there, she finds the property in significant disrepair.
When Matt Hardy narrowly lost the inn and property that butted his land, he just hoped it wasn’t another city slicker coming to make matters worse after the previous owners gutted the place for an art gallery. But the minute he recognized the sweet, freckle-faced girl from his childhood and heard her plans to reopen the inn, he jumps at the chance to help his childhood crush restore a place where he made so many fond memories.
While working on repairs, Liz and Matt discover her grandmother’s collection of angels in one of the cabins. When the angels start mysteriously showing up all over the inn, she begins to look at them as reassurance—that restoring the inn is what she’s meant to do. But when an accident leaves Liz feeling like she made a mistake, will Matt—and the residents of Antler Creek—be able to show Liz that she’s found a home? And possibly true love as well?
Excerpt: Liz felt the warmth climbing up her chest to her neck, then the burn in her cheeks. “It’s not quite as simple as you might think. That bid was from Matt.”
Maizey cocked her head so quick it reminded her of playing with those Rock ’Em Sock ’Em Robots with her little brother when she was a kid. A heavily penciled eyebrow practically disappeared beneath Maizey’s blond bangs. “Matt Hardy? He bid
on your project?”
“Why are you so surprised? You’re the one who said he could fix and build about anything.”
“He can,” Maizey said. “He just doesn’t hire out to do work. Ever. Help out? All the time, but never for hire.” That seemed odd, but that wasn’t her business.
“Why are you so perplexed when you have a good bid in the hand?” Maizey laughed. “Bid in the hand. Like bird in the hand.”
She sat down at the table. “Get it. I made a joke.”
Liz lightened up. “Yes. Funny. I don’t know. I just get a weird vibe around him. I can’t
“Weird? From Matt? He’s the nicest man I know. If I had a daughter, he’s exactly the kind of man I’d want her to be with.
“He seems nice. Maybe too nice. Or familiar?” She hadn’t let anyone be close to her in a long time. Not since the divorce. And all of her friends were work acquaintances, the closest being Peggy, but it wasn’t like they were the girls’-night-out kind of friends either. “There’s just something about him that nags atme, and not in a totally bad way. I just can’t put my finger on it.”
Maizey’s lips pursed. “The last man I knew that was as nice as Matt was your granddaddy. There’s not one thing wrong with nice.” She stood and waved as two workmen came in the restaurant, then looked Liz square in the eye. “That city girl brain of yours probably doesn’t know how to wrap itself around a genuinely nice man with no ulterior motives.” She swished away to wait on the men, who’d just seated themselves at the back table.
Matt did seem nice. Why did that bother her so much?
