Can a cozy inn at Christmas transform the troubled hearts seeking refuge there? 

Pregnant and alone, Alissa Hill moved to Garland, Tennessee to help at her aunt’s inn. When a guest brings her hidden past to the inn’s door, she must decide whether to face it or continue to run. 

A career-ending injury ruined Stephen Powell’s life plans. Now a former NFL kicker, he’s searching for a new purpose while recovering at the Cheery Inn. But those at the inn may offer him much more than he expects. 

Sparks fly when Alissa and Stephen meet, but secrets and regrets may keep them apart unless they can learn to forgive and move beyond their brokenness.

This book should be on everyone’s list this Christmas season. It is a beautiful reminder that God forgives us and loves us unconditionally. Alissa is a great character who feels that her sin is too much for God. Being an unwed pregnant woman to her is the one sin that God will never forgive her for. She has this mentality that she should be ashamed and wallows in her self pity. My heart went out to her as rejection filled her heart. As the holidays approach she tries her best to bring cheer to customers at the
Inn, but  underneath her smile is sadness and a longing to be accepted.

Stephen has come to the inn to get some much needed rest after an injury has taken him out of his dream of being on the Titans. He was a great kicker for the  team until the surgery turned out to be a mistake. He is angry and just  wants to stay in his room and brood. But God has a different plan for him and Alissa. His character brings a fresh look at how important it is to help others instead of focusing on our own problems. 

I loved how the author brings these two main characters together and lean on each other as they struggle through their trials. Stephen is there for Alissa and speaks words of truth to her. She has to learn  to forgive herself and find comfort in God’s grace. We find two people hurting and feeling rejected brought together to experience trust, forgiveness  and a new beginning. The author reminds us that nothing is impossible with God. 

I received a copy of this book from the author. The review is my own opinion.
