The perfect embodiment of a fun, contemporary Christmas romance! In Northern Vermont – so far north that on clear days you might be able to see the North Pole – lies the magical town of Evergreen…. Nancy Naigle’s Christmas in Evergreen is the perfect embodiment of a fun, contemporary, sweet and clean Christmas romance. It’s just what I needed to read on a hot evening after a stressful day! It was written after the filming of the Hallmark movie with the same name, so fans of the heart-warming big-screen version can revisit the wonderful wish-I-were-there feeling whenever they want. I quickly fell in love with the setting: the cozy, quaint and friendly small town of Evergreen where they follow their own Evergreen Code of Christmas Conduct and its Christmas year-round. As the story opens, we meet Allie, the small-town’s veterinarian, who is closing her practice to move to Washington, D.C. Her beloved grandfather had always told her that there was a big world out there. She took that to mean that he thought that she needed to leave Evergreen to find where she belongs. Allie doesn’t know anyone in Washington other than Spencer, a long-distance boyfriend who has pressured her to give their relationship a chance – by moving to be near him, leaving her home and family. Meanwhile, Dr. Ryan Bellamy and his daughter, Zoe, are on their way to Florida to spend Christmas on a cruise. Ryan believes that he and Zoe need to completely change how they have previously celebrated the holiday so the two of them create fresh memories and neither are reminded of the sad loss of his wife and Zoe’s mother last Christmas. On the way to the airport, the two stop in Evergreen, eat at Chris Kringle Kitchen, the local diner run by Allie’s parents, and meet Allie. A very special snow globe resides in the diner. Before the Bellamys continue on their way, Zoe and Ally each give the snow globe a shake and make a wish. What did they wish for? Does the snow globe possess special powers and, if so, will it contrive to make Zoe’s and Ally’s wishes come true? I felt completely at home with the colorful chorus of supporting characters in Evergreen, including Ezra, the town’s mayor, who means well in an extremely annoying way; Nick, who bears a strong resemblance to Santa and appears at the most opportune times; and a cow, who is determined to give birth even though she’s not yet due. I couldn’t help but chuckle as Allie’s truck, which she inherited from her grandpa, was in on the conspiracy to keep Ally and the Bellamys close. It was quite finicky and only cooperated when it served to further the relationship of Ryan and Allie. Christmas in Evergreen is a charming piece of Christmas enchantment with loads of laugh-out-loud moments. I’ve not seen the movie, but, I certainly need to after reading this book! Nancy’s writing is sublime. I honestly can’t imagine anyone else being chosen to write this book. LOL! I had meant to just read the introduction before bed and ended up inhaling the entire book as I couldn’t put it down. When you add in the snow and all the Christmas preparations from the making of the sugar cookies; to selecting the trees; and the plethora of holiday décor, and this delightful tale fulfilled all my dreams of a classic holiday read. By the way, this book comes with a recipe for some special Christmas cookies.

Delightful Christmas story based on the Hallmark movie. Wishing upon a snow globe brings Christmas wishes to life in a small town with only one road into the heart of the community. Lives are changed for the better, romance ensues, and a little Christmas magic saves the town's premiere event for the holidays. **received an ARC from netgalley**

What an outstanding way to get into the spirit of Christmas. Ryan, Allie and Zoe made my day and have me wanting to put up the Christmas tree. Since i'ts not even fall my husband may not be happy about that, but this book brought so much joy and was like sitting in the house on a winter day and watching a feel good Christmas movie. Amazing story that I'll be reading again and again. I loved Evergreen.

Allie Shaw is the town Veterinarian who is planning to leave Evergreen, Vermont and moving to Washington DC for a new experience. She also plans to see if her on again/off again relationship with Spencer is something she wants to pursue. The closer the time comes for this move to happen, the more Allie has second thoughts, especially about spending Christmas somewhere else besides Evergreen. As she says good-bye to her parents at the Chris Kringle Kitchen whey own, she gives the magic snow globe a shake. It is said that it will grant the wish if it is truly your heart's desire. As the story progresses, Allie crosses paths several times with widower Ryan Bellamy, a physician, and his young daughter Zoe. There is an unmistakable connection from the start, but as they are both leaving, the unexpected ways that they continue to meet one another is so unpredictable, you do not know where they will end up. When I requested this novel, I did not realize it was based on a Hallmark movie, but because I love Nancy Naigle's Christmas stories. Even though I had seen the movie last Christmas, I still enjoyed the book. Christmas romance is one of the things I love about the season and this book did not disappoint. The story is full of wonder, magic, friendships, small town delights, children, festivals, Christmas and romance. With each of the main characters making their separate wishes on the snow globe, the mesh of their wishes shows the wisdom of fate and that the heart often understands what one needs well before the mind catches up. The appearance of Nick (St. Nick?) adds some of that whimsy needed in these stories. I truly enjoyed this book and look forward to watching the movie again this Christmas.I rated this book 4.5 stars, but rounded it up to five. I recommend this book to anyone who loves magical Christmas stories, romance or small town stories with happy endings. Hallmark Publishing generously provided me with a copy of this book.

If you believe in the magic of Christmas, then Christmas in a Evergreen Vermont is where you need to go! Allie Shaw has grown up and lived her entire life in Evergreen. Everything she knows and loves is there including her veterinary practice., but she has decided to move to Washington DC to experience something new. Her boyfriend Spencer lives there and is really looking forward to Allie’s move. Ryan Bellamy and his daughter Zoe are going to Florida for Christmas but due to weather issues end up in Evergreen. The weather continually seems to change everyone’s direction and plans for Christmas. There is also a magic snow globe and a man named Nick that figures prominently too. A wonderful well written story of hope, wishes and love. The characters and town will transport you to place you never want to leave. Nancy Naigle has masterfully written a story that will leave you wanting more and so happy that you took the time to visit Evergreen Vermont. I love Christmas stories but this is clearly one of my favorites that I know I will read over and over again. Amazing story and characters you can’t help but fall in love with.

I freely admit, I downloaded Nancy Naigle’s latest, Christmas in Evergreen purely for the cover. I love, love that red truck. I also, loved, loved the Hallmark movie last Christmas. Naigle easily captures the fun, warmhearted feeling of the movie within the pages of the novel. Who says the books and the movies can’t be better? I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

I love this amazing, feel good, small town Christmas romance. A small town vet with an old red pickup truck preparing to move to DC, a widower with a darling daughter passing through town, a mysterious snow globe and Christmas - what's not to like. Well written, believable characters in this tale of stopping to figure out what your heart really wants. I enjoyed this book and hated to reach the end.

I could not put this book down, another great book by Nancy Naigle! I normally don't read Christmas books in the summer but this book transported me from my 80 degree weather right back to our winters in Northern Michigan. The characters are very relatable and the details of this book really make you visualize a Christmas in Evergreen. If you love Christmas and the spirit of Christmas with lights, trees, cookies, and more this is the book for you! I would highly recommend this book.

I love Christmas and this is the absolute sweetest Christmas Book! Allie is trying to decide where her life is leading her. She has accepted a job in a Veterinarian hospital in Washington,DC. Her mind says yes, but her heart already is missing her small town of Evergreen, her family, friends, and patients. The only thing to do is to wish on the snow globe, but will her dream come true? Seems as though nature has a significant role in helping with her hearts desires. "Only wishes your heart truly wanted even had a chance of being granted." I don't know about you, but I would love to visit this quaint town and see all of its beauty! The descriptions of the town, diner, trees, decorations and people are just magnificent! Beautiful novel!
