Publisher's Summary

Noelle Wentworth doesn't mind getting away from St. Augustine to fill in at her ailing aunt's candle shop. A few weeks in Snowing Rock will help her get past the humiliating memory lapse that ruined an important piano concert - and, ultimately, her marriage to her overbearing duet partner.

She's mentally rehearsing for her comeback performance when the bus she's riding in slides off an icy mountain road.

And one deep, calming voice emerges from the confusion to slow her racing heart - right before his ruggedly handsome face kicks it back into allegro.

Gabe Waters is usually prepared for anything - as a professional stuntman, his life depends on it - but nothing prepared him for Noelle, the unattainable high school crush whose bravery saved him from more than just a bully's flying fist. There's no hint she recognizes him, but Gabe knows that face, those eyes...and he sees something that wasn't there before. Distrust and apprehension.

Their unexpected attraction kindles something as warm and sweet as a holiday candle. But the weight of their pasts could turn the promise of love to ashes.

Enjoyable romantic second chance romance

A wonderfully well written small town second chance romance. The characters were interesting and relateable. This sweet romantic story was entertaining and an excellent short story about vulnerability and strength with learning to trust again. It included twists and turns along with some mystery as fears and obstacles were overcome to realize they were made for each other. A perfect holiday romance as Noelle wants to prove to the word she is an excellent pianist after a disasterous performance and frighteninghealth scare. Trying to recover from her depression of a horrible performance and a broken marriage, she goes back to Snowing Rock to help her Aunt in her candle store while she recovers from her hip surgery. On the way she is in an accident that Gabe a local who has loved Noelle since high school helps from the icy roads. A wonderful sweet journey as Gabe helps her regain confidence and learns to trust again to their HEA. The narration by Liz Beachel was amazing as you could really feel the emotions and the holiday spirit as described making the storyline even more magical and really made the story come to life. I loved how she was able to brilliantly change her voice so you knew exactly who was talking or thinking.

Will Noelle Ever Trust Again?

Noelle has lost her confidence due to her ex-husband's treatment of her. I too had an ex like that so I completely understood how she felt.

Cabe has always loved Noelle but never felt he was good enough for her. How do they meet again and what happens between them?

Can she trust Cabe enough to learn to love him or will she run from trust and love again.?

I highly recommend this book to you and I know you will enjoy it as much as I have. Get it and read or listen to it yourself so you can find out everything that goes on in this exceptional story.

Sweet Christmastime story!

Would you listen to Candleglow and Mistletoe again? Why?

I would listen to this sweet story again. It was nice to see Noelle learn to trust again. Learning to face and overcome fears is a good lesson. The handsome hero wasn't bad either.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Candleglow and Mistletoe?

There were many memorable moments in this story. I liked when Noelle stood up to her ex-husband. I also liked Noelle's return to Snowing Rock. I can't say too much without spoilers.

Which character – as performed by Liz Baechel – was your favorite?

Noelle was my favorite performance. If I were reading the book, I think I would have found her a bit self-centered. Liz Beachel made Noelle seem more self-protective and gave her a more compassionate feel.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Sweet Christmastime Story! Romance, Trust and Overcoming Fears.

Any additional comments?

I loved that the characters were complex, very real people with real issues that needed to be worked through.
