HOPE UNDER MISTLETOE by Jesscia R. Patch, Reviewed by Susan Snodgrass

I only discovered Jessica Patch's work when she recently released her debut novel. I then found she had written 4 novellas! Hope Under Mistletoe is the first and it is such a precious work! Felt more like a novel than just a 95 page novella. Rich and full with a strong spiritual message, great characters who seemed real and the setting was wonderful. I plan to read the next 3 in the series. I am very glad I found this author, for now I intend to follow her. Always. She is seriously talented.

Widowed pastor's wife Eden Snow is still living in the parsonage when the church burns. She needs to find a place to hold services for at least a month. With Christmas coming, it's important to have a church to worship in.

Rowdy bar owner Knox Everhart has always had a soft spot for Eden, even after she married his best friend Nathan. She asks to use the back room of his bar for church services and events. He wants to say no, but how can he? Knox has a horrible secret, one he fears will turn Eden against him for good.

This book is a prime example of how God moves in our lives, even when we think we don't deserve it. He fills in all the empty places and makes us new. I just reread this book and found it even more wonderful.

*I purchased this book and was under no obligation to review it. 

BackCover Blurb:
A rowdy bar owner. A widowed pastor’s wife. And Christmas hope that brings them together.

After widow 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.
