Holiday Romance
Publish Date:
November 9, 2021

From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Dorothy Dreyer, comes a beautiful story about the magic of Christmas, the strength of family and friends, and falling in love when you least expect it—all with the help of a team of Alaskan Malamutes. This gorgeous, feel-good Christmas treat is perfect for fans of Debbie Macomber, Jenny Hale, and Sheila Roberts.

Holly St. Ives is in a rut. Once a celebrated artist making waves in New York City, she finds herself uninspired and unmotivated. Her recent break-up is the last push she needs to spend Christmas alone in the small mountain cabin her father left her in his will—a family getaway she hasn’t visited in years.

After a near accident in Silverwood, she meets Nick Mason, whom she learns is responsible for everything in the small town running like clockwork—including the upcoming Christmas festival and the town’s entry in the state-wide tree decorating contest. Holly doesn’t have time for Nick’s beguiling charm or mouth-watering holiday cupcakes, but after meeting his father, she discovers there’s more to the town’s obsession with the contest than meets the eye.

Touched by the prospect that the whole town is willing to pitch in for a good cause, Holly feels her Christmas spirit making a comeback. As Nick and his team of Alaskan Malamutes work their way into her heart, Holly may just remember the meaning of the season after all.



Praise for Christmas in Silverwood

*My Thoughts*

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

Awww... I just adored this story! It really IS "an uplifting and heartwarming festive romance" as stated in the description of Christmas in Silverwood. Yes, it does read like a Hallmark-esque Christmas story. But, hey, it is the Christmas season... Right!?! I couldn't help smile and have that "heartwarming" feeling while reading Holly and Nick's story.

Christmas in Silverwood is a delightful and charming romance perfect for the holiday season filled with love, hope, and Christmas miracles. I was completely taken in with these characters and the small mountain town of Silverwood. And, of course, I absolutely loved the of those wonderful dogs! It just made me swoon even more...Ha! Having dogs of my own, my heart just fell for those furry four-legged beasts. It was absolutely adorable how those dogs were part of this holiday story.

The author created a wonderful cast of characters and a beautiful and scenic town that gave off the feeling of neighborliness and love. Sheesh... Who wouldn't fall in love with the wonderful town of Silverwood... Right?!? With all the wonderful characters and the enchanting setting, this could even be a "Silverwood" series telling the stories of the various citizens of its alluring town.

Anyways, Christmas in Silverwood is a sweet story filled with an abundance of Christmas spirit that is a perfect read on a cozy winter night in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate.
