Book: Starlight Inn

Author: Annee Jones

Genre: Sweet/ Clean Contemporary Romance

Release date: November 4, 2022

Hope Garland is driving home for Christmas. She’s depressed because she caught her fiancé cheating (or he dumped her for her best friend). Tears blurred her vision, she crashes the car….. in reality she gets taken to hospital and is in a coma.

However, in her mind after the crash she’s OK, she gets out of the car, but it is totaled & it’s in the middle of a snowstorm. Needs a place to stay…. Finds the Starlight Inn, run by the Kringles. Meets other guests, including a handsome stranger. They’ll be snowed in for Christmas so have to make the best of things…..end up falling in love.

When she wakes from the coma on Christmas Day, she finds someone set a snow globe on the windowsill next to her bed which has a little Victorian inn inside with a sign that says “Starlight Inn”. The doctor comes in (or perhaps it will be the young hospital chaplain) and it’s the same man from her dream that she fell in love with (and there’s promise for them to have a real-life romance).

An Author’s Take

Book Review: Starlight Inn by Annee Jones

If you want a book to put you in the Christmas mood, you must check out Starlight Inn by Annee Jones.

The story opens with Hope Garland, a young woman at a crossroads in life. She accepts a job in Chicago, thousands of miles away from her family residing in Dallas. Traveling days before Christmas has her wondering if she made the right decision in taking the new job so far from home. Determined to shake the doubts, she presses on toward her destination until a snowstorm forces her to stop for the night.

The story gets interesting when Hope finds herself hunkered down at the local Starlight Inn. Enjoying time with complete strangers, who also feel awkwardly familiar, awakens the Christmas spirit in Hope. She also finds herself drawing closer to Nick White, another stranded traveler. Together they form a special bond by discussing family, life, and future goals. The time at the Starlight Inn causes Hope to re-evaluate everything she thought was important to her.

The story was a lighthearted, quick read with some fun twists and turns. It definitely got me in the mood to celebrate Christmas and everything that goes with it. Family, Hallmark movies, hot chocolate, cookies, and most importantly, Jesus!

I recommend giving Starlight Inn a read. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
