Overview

Running the family B&B has always been Cassidy Ryan's dream. But first, she has to save it from neglect.

Closing the doors to the Silver Bell Inn for the holiday seasons seems like the perfect plan to give the B&B some much needed love and care. Or at least it would be if the inn didn't need a lot more work than Cassidy can handle on her own. She needs help. But asking it is the last thing she wants to do.

Getting stuck in Silver Bell Falls was not part of Beckham Allen's plans. Neither was this cross-country road trip, for that matter. He was supposed to be focusing on himself and on healing after the loss of his father. But nothing, not even his rescue dog Mazie, seems to be able to break him out of his funk.

Or so he thought until he met the sweet innkeeper who takes him in.

After an awkward start, Cassidy and Beckham discover the perks of being snowed in together. And with Christmas drawing closer, they find they may have just been given the greatest gift of all.

5 star review of Christmas Inn Love (Silver Bells Fall #5) by Samantha Chase I love stories based around Christmas, it’s my most favourite holiday of the year. I also love stories based in small towns so Christmas Inn Love is a win/win for me. I have read several books by Samantha Chase and I found this one to be as well written and enjoyable as her previous books. Cassidy Ryan is running her family’s B & B, Silver Bell Inn but first she needs to close and renovate it. When she opens her doors to Beckham Allen and his dog Maize after a car accident, she has no idea how her life is about to change. I loved the build up in Cassidy and Beck’s relationship as they are snowed in. Getting to know one another , the chemistry between them intensifies. This is a feel good book that left me with a smile on my face and certainly got me in the mood for the holiday season.

Loved this heartwarming, emotional and engaging journey for these two lost souls that find what they needed so badly but had no idea they were looking for it! Loved this sweetly thrilling adventure that had me glued to my e-reader from (ignoring all house work) beginning to end. Excellent Reading!

The town of Silver Bell Falls works its Christmas magic again in Samantha Chase's Christmas Inn Love. It is a heartwarming and engaging story filled with steamy romance and holiday spirit. Cassidy Ryan is renovating the Victorian B&B that she took over from her retired parents and determined to handle everything on her own. While the inn is not ready for guests, Cassidy cannot say no when her friend, Bailey, asks her to house a traveler whose van went off the road after a close encounter with a deer. Former football player Beckham Allen found that all the luxuries and privileges he'd earned from playing in the NFL were meaningless to him when he was alone after losing his father. He set out on a cross-country road trip to deal with his grief, armed with a bucket list of things he had always planned to do with his father. When the accident and snowstorm strand him in Silver Bell Falls, fate brings him to the right place, at the right time, and to the right person. I'm not someone who believes in fate or whimsical things...but for some reason, I feel like I'm supposed to be here with you." Even though there is an immediate attraction between Cassidy and Beckham, they push each other away and get pulled out of their usual comfort zones. The attraction can't been denied, and their relationship is sweet and steamy. Chase's writing is spot on, as usual. You will laugh at Cassidy's creative cursing, enjoy the antics of Beckham's dog, Mazie, and swoon when Beckham makes Cassidy's dreams for the inn come true. "You've made a huge difference in my life, and now I'd like to hopefully make one in yours." The story is all wrapped up in joyous Christmas spirit with wonderful secondary characters from Chase's previous Silver Bell Falls books. Snuggle up in your favorite chair and enjoy!

Five enthusiastic Christmas stars!! OMG, this book was everything a Christmas book should be! A grumpy hero, a sassy heroine, and a rescue dog!! And they're all snowed in for Christmas! Samantha Chase is one of my top go-to authors and she is the queen of Christmas romances. Christmas Inn Love is, by far, her best one yet! Hallmark should totally make this into a movie because it is everything. If you're looking for a little holiday spirit, look no further!

Snowed in with a hunk? Yes, please. Cassidy finds herself in this situation with Beckham who is stranded in their town of Silver Bell Falls. I adored Cassidy. She is as independent as they come since she has taken over her parents bed and breakfast that is in dire need of renovations that she plans to do mostly herself. The town wants to help but doesnt know how to without offending Cassidy. Her pride might be the thing that prevents her from finishing all she needs done. Beckham is a lost soul. After losing his father, he retires from his NFL career and does the thing his father never had time for. Visiting all the places he had read about. A snowstorm gets in his way and he stays at the B&B. He's the only guest since Cassidy is closed for renovations and he can't not help her. Their attraction is immediate but Cassidy has a rule about guests. They are off limits. This pair is the most stubborn of the couples that have been in the previous books. Not that you need to read them to enjoy this. They have this push and pull all through the book and I wanted to sit them both down and have a stern talk with them. That to me is a fantastic sign of a great book.

Happy Holidays!! This story made my heart sigh and very, very happy. This was such a sweet and beautiful story of two lonely people who weren’t looking for love but the fates decided differently. I believe in holiday magic and this story is exactly the inspiration of that belief. Beckham is a sexy ex pro football player whose missing his dad and is on a journey to memorialize him when by accident he meets Cassidy. She is a strong, independent and very sweet woman who is trying to live her dream. These two together are so perfect for each other and I’m so happy they figured it out. If your looking to escape the holiday dramas then this story will do that for you. I couldn’t put it down.

All the feels in this Christmas novella set in the small town that celebrates Christmas year round. What more could you ask for? Well, let me tell you. First we have a retired NFL player who is traveling around the country who adopted a dog in Magnolia Sound (right?) and he just happens to get in an accident outside of town and in the middle of a record snow storm. The town B&B is closed for renovations but for a stranded stranger in need Cassidy Ryan will make an exception though she is not thrilled to include the dog because she is terrified of them. It takes a little bit of negotiating around space and with the snow falling the space gets tight but once they come together the heat cranks up and the banter is wonderful. I definitely recommend this one! **Received this ARC for review**

Just a sweet little small town Christmas story! My favorite kind! And Samantha Chase sure knows how to deliver! I loved this story so much!! I feel like it could definitely be a Hallmark Christmas movie. Cassidy and Beckham seem so opposite at first but end up being perfect for each other. She is a lifelong small towner who owns the only B&B in town; and he is a retired NFL player on an emotional journey with his dog Mazie when he is stranded in town and the only place to stay is Cassidy's B&B that is technically closed for business at that time. Throw in a serious snow storm and you have all the makings for two people who are attracted to each other to fall in love. Sweet and heartwarming, this is all you could ask for in a romantic Christmas story.

3.75 stars--CHRISTMAS INN LOVE is the fifth instalment in Samantha Chase’s contemporary, adult SILVER BELL FALLS romance series focusing on the town and people of Silver Bell Falls, New York. This is B&B owner Cassidy Ryan, and former professional football player Beckham Allen’s story line. CHRISTMAS INN LOVE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. There is a slight crossover with the mention of the author’s Magnolia Sound series. Told from dual third person perspectives (Cassidy and Beckham) CHRISTMAS INN LOVE follows the building relationship between B&B owner Cassidy Ryan, and former professional football player Beckham Allen. Days before Christmas Beckham Allen found himself snowbound in the small town of Silver Bell Falls, New York when his vehicle spun out of control injuring himself and his dog Mazie. With no available lodging Beckham is forced to take a room at the Silver Bell Inn B&B, where the proprietor struggles to accept Beckham at face value. Enter Cassidy Ryan, owner and manager of the B&B, and the woman with whom Beckham will fall in love. What ensues is the building but forbidden relationship between Beckham and Cassidy, and the potential fall-out as Beckham’s time in Silver Bell Falls comes to an end. Cassidy Ryan is struggling to complete the renovations to the Silver Bell Inn. With no plans for the Christmas holidays, Cassidy sets her sights on Valentine’s Day hoping the Inn will be refurbished on time. Beckham Allen is bored out of his mind in Silver Bell Falls, and battles between head and heart when it comes to ‘aiding’ our heroine with her ongoing renovations but a call from a friend finds Beckham leaving town sooner than he had anticipated. The relationship between Beckham and Cassidy is one of immediate attraction but Cassidy struggles in the face of renovation h*ll, and caught with the interruption of unexpected guests. Having bought the Inn from her newly retired parents, Cassidy found the upkeep and renovations to be more then she could afford especially for our heroine who struggles to be independent and on her own. The slow building romance is passionate but mostly implied. There is a large ensemble case of colorful secondary and supporting characters with the small town mentality of in-your-face gossip and business including Bailey Walsh and Gavin Maguire (A Christmas Rescue #4). CHRISTMAS INN LOVE is a story of friendship, family, romance and love. The premise is entertaining and engaging; the romance is sweet; the characters are strong willed and energetic.

The perfect Christmas read with all of the warm feelings of the holidays. Silver Bells is one of my favorite Christmas towns. Cassidy is trying to get her inn remodeled by herself when a snowstorm hits and a stranger with his dog gets snowed in. Beck is on a road trip seeing the sights after his dad died and he left his career as a professional football player. Both are at crossroads in their lives and soon a relationship develops that they can't deny. This story will give you plenty of warm fuzzies, from all of the mentions of comfort foods, wonderful friends, Christmas decorating and being out in the snow , plus did I mention the sweet romance. Loved Mazie too!! I wish we all had a Beck in our lives. This is a book that I could not put down, I highly recommend!!

Cassidy and Beckham’s love story was amazing, emotional, and unexpected for both of them. I absolutely loved reading Christmas Inn Love by Samantha Chase book five in her Silver Bell Falls series. With the retirement of her parents, Cassidy Ryan has taken over the running of the family B&B and decided to bring it into the 21st century with an update. Closing the Inn for the holiday season seemed like the perfect plan but the B&B needed much more love and care than Cassidy could handle by herself. Although she needs help, asking for it is the last thing she wants to do; as she wants to prove she can handle this on her own. After the death of his father, former NFL player, Beckham Allen took a cross-country road trip to visit all the places his dad had wanted see as well as try to heal. Nothing, not even a rescue dog, Mazie, he saved while on the road, could get him out of his funk; at least until an accident forces Beckham to stay in Silver Bell Falls and at the B&B with the beautiful and sweet innkeeper. As Cassidy and Beckham discover, there are numerous perks to being snowed in together; not just getting to know each other. As they spend time fixing up the inn and talking, these two discover how similar they are as well as how well matched they seemed to be; despite the size differences. The attraction and chemistry between Cass and Beck is off the charts and hard for others to miss; yet, they could not believe they could fall for each other that quickly. As Christmas approaches, Cassidy and Beckham find that they just might have been given the greatest gift of all. Love. Ms. Chase once again provided an amazing tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters; providing, along with a little Christmas magic, Cassidy and Beckham with a chance for happiness, a future together, and everlasting love. I highly recommend Christmas Inn Love to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

What a great way to get into the holiday spirit!! I have loved all of the Silver Bell Falls books and this is no exception. Cassidy and Beck are both wandering, not sure of their next steps. Cassidy has taken over the B&B her parents had after they retired to Florida. Beck is at the end of his incredible NFL career. But the loss of his father makes him realize he really hadn’t made plans for the end. So he take a cross country trip, adopting a dog along the way, to find his next place. As fate often does, they cross paths in Silver Bell Falls and it’s a HEA that is full of holiday cheer. Love catching up with the other characters, especially at the holiday in such a holiday filled town.

First off, I do not think I will EVER get tired of Samantha Chase’s Silver Bell Falls Christmas series!!! Ms. Chase’s latest release Christmas Inn Love is the 5th book in this wonderful series, and let me tell you now, It! Is! Phenomenal!! Aaaand, makes me want to go back to the first book and start the series ALLLL over again. Some people would say that Beckham Allen has it all, the giant football career, the big house, financially secure. Those people would be wrong!! Beckham lost is mother at a fairly young age, and his father has become everything to him. They talk about everything to each other, good and bad. They talk about doing things and places they want to see together. However, when tragedy strikes and Beckham loses his dad, his mentor, his best friend, he realizes that he needs the time to take that trip he and his father talked about. During his trip, Beckham starts to realize just how “alone” he really is. When he stops in Magnolia Sound, a small beach town that was devastated by a severe hurricane, he adopts Mazie a wonderful dog orphaned during the hurricane. (Thank you, Ms. Chase, this was one of my favorite parts of the book. Hopefully, some of your readers will think about adopting a loving fur baby from a shelter and give them a loving home.) During the New York leg of his trip Beckham and Mazie run into a really bad snowstorm and has an accident near the town of Silver Bell Falls. Cassidy Ryan has taken over the Silver Bell Falls only B & B from her parents, this has always been a dream of hers. However, due to her father’s stubbornness about change, Cassidy has her work cut out for her, with a total renovation. Well, now is as good a time as any, and Cassidy is determined to prove that she is up to the task, doing the updates herself. Oh, and by the way, “stubbornness”, it runs in the family, she refuses to ask for help. But, the community of Silver Bell Falls, her friends and neighbors, absolutely REFUSE to watch her struggle and organize a big work party to help with the renovations. That night a huge snowstorms hits and just as Cassidy is snuggling up for a relaxing evening watching the snow, she gets a call about a stranded traveler and his dog needing a place to stay while repairs are done on his van. Cassidy and Beckham’s first meeting did not go so well for Cassidy for two main reasons. First, the stress of the day from accepting help from her friends. Second, Mazie. Cassidy has been deathly afraid of dogs since she was bitten by one as a child. I really enjoyed watching Cassidy and Beckham grow, yes, I think “grow” is the right word. You see, Cassidy, her stubbornness came out of fear and insecurities about running the B & B as well her parents had. She forgot one big thing though. And Beckham, after staying in Silver Bell Falls, he starts to realize a lot of things as well. And, sorry/not sorry, ladies, I am not going to give anything away about the things that they both learned. I love the genre of small-town romance, throw in that this book is also a Christmas romance, another favorite genre, well, that would hook me right off the bat. Add in that one of my favorite authors, Samantha Chase wrote the story… Not only could I not wait for this book to hit my tablet, I also could not wait for it to release on audio as well, so I could listen again to this wonderful story as well. Thank you, Ladies, for reading my review. I hope I helped you make the decision to purchase this wonderful

With a handful of irony and a pocketful of heart, Chase sets about putting a smile on your face. Christmas Inn Love brings a new beginning for a couple of lost souls. Stuck at a crossroads, both personally and professionally, it's up to fate to bring back the sunshine and put a little love in their hearts. Sometimes we have to lose ourselves in order to find out where we belong. Cassidy and Beckham give lost and found a bit of holiday magic that sets off sparks in the heart. Chase and heartwarming are a perfect fit for romance.

Magical Christmas Romance! A heartwarming, small-town, charming and magical christmas romance, that will leave you in the holiday spirit. A very Hallmark movie type story that will bring all the feels. Cassidy had been waiting to take over her parents’ B & B when they retired. But with all the renovations and remodeling that need to take place, she has decided to close it for the holiday season. Finding herself overwhelmed, with everything that still needs to be done, she is a little put out, when her friend calls to ask if a stranger and his pet dog can stay with her. Beckham Allen, cannot believe that he lost control of his car, and now him and his dog are in need of a place to stay, with a snow storm on the way. Little do these two know that sometimes bad things turn into the best things. And when they are snowed in for a couple of days together, it just might be the best Holiday season yet! A heartwarming story furnished with an outstanding cast of characters, that will fill your heart with joy and love! I voluntarily read and reviewed a gifted copy. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Put me Inn the Christmas Spirit Wow! This book! I have coasted into autumn without a thought towards the holidays, until this book! I was practically humming Christmas carols as I read this! For me, the books are all about the characters, the story, and the writing … and this book ticks all boxes. The characters are classic Samantha Chase, realistic, solid, and well developed. The main characters, Cassidy and Beckham are terrific… they are on an emotional journey, both struggling with the “what’s next” part of their lives. Ms. Chase’s writing reminds me of growing up in a small upstate NY town where snowstorms and blizzards would bring the town together! Reading this makes me me wish I could transport myself to Silver Bell Falls to ride out the storm Cassidy is struggling to make it on her own with the weight of re-opening her family’s Inn on her shoulders. She wants to do it on her own to prove to everyone, and herself, that she can do it. She’s honest, good to her friends, and super sweet and it doesn’t take much for her flare for creative, G-rated, holiday-minded swearing to come out. Beckham is a retired NFL sportsman who has finally slowed down enough to mourn the recent death of his father. He’s on a journey to visit all the places on his father’s wish list. Along the way, he picks up a dog (Mazie), and together they find themselves stranded in Silver Bell Falls. As he waits for the snow to stop falling and the roads to clear, he realizes that he might have found his “forever home” in Silver Bell Falls and with Cassidy. Ms. Chase’s skillful writing weaves family and friends into the story. If you haven’t read any of them, you won’t suffer … although you’ll want to read those too! The other characters, from previous books, make you feel like you’ve gone home for a visit. They all support Cassidy, realize that Beckham is more than his famous image, and cheer them on as a couple. The story is sweet, with a HEA, with a few twists that will keep you engaged in the story. If you’re looking for something to either get you into the Christmas spirit … or keep you there, download Christmas Inn Love immediately. Put some Christmas music on in the background, grab a plate of cookies, and settle in for a lovely treat! You’ll want to keep it on your “holiday re-read” shelf because it will quickly become a seasonal favorite. Holly Sleigh-bells! “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!”
