Today, I am happy to feature A Fair Mountain Christmas, as a part of the Coffee Pot Book Club.

Book Description:

Nostalgia and Christmas miracles burn bright in this uplifting and heartwarming story about new beginnings and falling in love under a blanket of stars.

Fair Mountain, December 1972.

A few days before Christmas, Juni’s editor gives her a writing assignment that throws her far outside her comfort zone. She and her terrier, Leo, retreat to her grandparents’ old cabin in the Norwegian mountains in hopes of inspiration. But the trip turns into a heart-wrenching and emotionally challenging encounter.

Memories of Juni’s childhood seep in as soon as she enters the cabin, and as for the writing assignment…what does she know about what children need for Christmas?

Juni’s focus changes when handsome Henry Norheim from Moose Lodge down the hill unexpectedly shows up outside her cottage door. His dedication to family, traditions, and Christmas celebration is contagious, but for Juni, coming out of her lonely shell is easier said than done.

As Juni’s deadline draws closer, and the snowflakes softly swirl down on Fair Mountain, she has to face up to her past, open her heart, and dare to take a step forward.

Will the miracle of Christmas live up to its promise of hope, goodwill, and love this year?

MY REVIEW:

Seeking solace to complete a writing assignment from her editor, Juni, along with her dog, Leo head to her grandmother’s cabin in the Norwegian mountains. 

Many memories from her childhood crop up during Juni’s stay, and she struggles with what to write about. 

An encounter with Henry, the owner of the nearby Moose Lodge helps her see things in a different light. 

Will Juni be able to meet her editor’s deadline, or will her past keep her focused on old memories?

A Fair Mountain Christmas is the kind of light Christmastime story that warms the heart and soul. Eljarbo unfolds Juni’s story in a gentle, easy was that is perfect for readers who seek a sweet holiday story, reminiscent of the hope of the season. 

Grab a steaming cup of your favorite drink, and curl up in a cozy spot with this novella, guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a spark of magic in your heart.

About the Author:

Heidi Eljarbo is the bestselling author of historical fiction and mysteries filled with courageous and good characters that are easy to love and others you don’t want to go near.

Heidi grew up in a home filled with books and artwork and she never truly imagined she would do anything other than write and paint. She studied art, languages, and history, all of which have come in handy when working as an author, magazine journalist, and painter.

After living in Canada, six US states, Japan, Switzerland, and Austria, Heidi now calls Norway home. She and her husband have a total of nine children, thirteen grandchildren—so far—in addition to a bouncy Wheaten Terrier.

Their favorite retreat is a mountain cabin, where they hike in the summertime and ski the vast, white terrain during winter.

Heidi’s favorites are family, God’s beautiful nature, and the word whimsical.
