Eight years after fleeing Christmas Mountain because of a high school prank gone wrong, Ashley Brooks receives a mysterious letter from her mentor asking her to come home. She arrives to face all she left behind—her family, her friends, and the rich boy she'd loved who would never date the girl from the wrong side of town.

Brent Donnelly, high school jock, brainiac, and dutiful son did everything right until the day Ashley returns to Christmas Mountain. With one look at the girl who got away he questions all his life choices, including following in his father's footsteps in the family business.

Faced with a potentially devastating decline of tourism in their hometown, Brent and Ashley must work together to save the magic of their town, but when Ashley discovers he still has feelings for her best friend she must finally face the real reason she left Christmas Mountain—to try to heal her broken heart.

This book introduces readers to Christmas Falls and the girls who were friends there but have drifted apart. It focuses on Ashley and her relationship with Brent- which is sweet, but the miscommunication to create conflict was a little too melodramatic for me. It was interesting how much Ashley loved her friends but was afraid to reconnect with them. The author's writing style also wasn't my favorite- including run-on sentences and missing commas which would have made more natural pauses in the rhythm of the words. Overall it was a decent story and because the rest of the books in the series are by other authors, I kept on reading. (I received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions in this review are my own)

This was a great story. Ashley is back home because her teacher and mentor called her back to town for a favor. Ashley hasn't been back since graduation, and hasn't kept in touch very well with anyone, including her family. Brent is Ashley's crush from middle school and high school, and he is still in Christmas Falls after all these years. But Ashley's return makes him question his life choices. I loved these characters, and all of the secondary characters as well. I love the whole "small town vibe" that is going on. Everyone pitches in to help. Once Ashley and Brent get the idea to jump-start the tourism in the area, it seems like everyone wants to help put Christmas Falls back on the map.

This is the first book I've read by Ciara Knight. The cover is cute and the title is perfect for this story, about a woman named Ash who comes back to her hometown of Christmas Falls, TN, after being away for 8 years. Ash has a lot of relationships, and while the origins and reasons for estrangement are explained, some of the reunions are brief or only mentioned. She returns to town at the request of her former, beloved music teacher, but dreads reuniting with her parents and high school friends. Most of the focus of this book is on Ash's relationships with her mother and high school crush, Brent. I thought the scenes with her mother were well-developed and realistic. The back-and-forth with Brent, less so. I love the general plot of this book, the idea of reconnection and coming home to friends and family, and the mountainous Tennessee setting. Although the romance seemed fickle and rushed, I'll probably read book #2 to read more about the town and Ash's high school friends. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
