Christmas, sleigh bells, and dashing through the snow—toward love.

Hotel owner Ellery Hart’s business is on the rocks. Rooms are empty, the lobby is ugly, and a huge loan payment is due. Unless she can pay, she will lose her grandpa’s legacy, the Bells Chalet. While her mom would have her marry the rich banker who is holding the hotel’s title ransom, that idea is beyond unacceptable.

Ellery needs brilliant business solution. But how to make one happen fast?

Bing Whitmore has been running the family business, Whitmore Thoroughbred Stables, on his own. But when his heart is broken by two females—horses, that is—he is thrown for an emotional loop, and all he wants to do is quit. Sell the stables. Never look at another horse again.

Instead, his cousin convinces him to take a vacation. They travel nine hours to the quietest hotel he can find—the Bells Chalet. Meeting a beautiful hotel owner makes this escape better than he could have hoped.

When Ellery needs help, Bing wants to do anything to make her smile, even if it means helping her fill the perfectly serene hotel with more guests. But when he learns that her hotel-saving plan involves the very thing he’s traveled so far to avoid, can Bing put aside his pain and help Ellery save her grandpa’s business and the jobs of the employees she loves?
My Review: 4 Stars
This little Christmas series is like a Hallmark movie wrapped up in Christmas paper and tied with a silver sleigh bell. Ellery needs to come up with something to save the family business and when she does, the ideas fly and everyone pitches in to turn the Bells Hotel into the Sleigh Bells Chalet. All the warmth, goodness, sweetness, hope, and love emerge when Bing, a long-term guest, helps out. 
Bing and Ellery are great characters and I loved watching the magic of the season help them with their obstacles. Everyone has issues and everyone has a story, and it takes true love and caring to overcome things.
If you're in the mood for a Hallmark-esque movie, give this book a try and you're guaranteed a heartwarming tale.
