Blog Tour & Review: A Christmas at Gingerbread Falls

A Christmas at Gingerbread Falls
Katie Mettner
Publication date: October 12th 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Holiday, Romance

Actress Carrie Murray’s films are a Christmas lover’s delight. Filled with twinkling lights, festive carols, and happy endings, they’re the perfect escape from reality—for her and the audience. Then Tinseltown calls.

Braxton Timothy is Hollywood’s biggest action star. Handsome and talented but decidedly on the naughty list, no one can fathom his sudden desire to produce a feel-good Christmas movie—least of all, his no-name co-star.

Alternating between scenes reminiscent of everyone’s favorite made-for-TV movies and unexpected, off-screen chemistry, Gingerbread Falls has surprises in store this holiday season. The question is, will there be enough Christmas magic to convince two imperfect people that they’re perfect for each other?

This “sweet as a Christmas cookie” romance (bestselling author Heidi Swain) includes an original recipe for Maple Glazed Gingerbread Scones.

I quickly have to thank Xpresso Book Tours for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour and for sending me an eArc of A Christmas at Gingerbread Falls so that I could read and review it for my tour stop today.

A Christmas at Gingerbread Falls is a stand-alone book.

I think I can officially say that this is my first Christmas book of the season. I was really excited when I received the email for this tour because this year I really want to read more Christmas-themed books.

This was a fun and heartful quick read. This definitely felt like a true Hallmark Christmas movie being made and I would definitely watch it if it was an actual movie.

Our main characters are Carrie and Braxton are both actors in the midst of filming A Christmas at Gingerbread Falls. They are playing Noelle and Carson. Noelle is the owner of the Gingerbread Cafe and Carson is the new doctor in town. Doesn’t this scream a Hallmark movie?

The book is told in alternating points of view that of the actors and that of the roles of the characters in the movie. I have to admit after a rough night of sleeping when I picked this back up to read the next day I was confused so needless to say I had to reread what I read for it to make sense in my MS brain.

On-screen Noelle and Carson are told to not kiss and to keep this a sweet as possible but off-screen things are heating up between the two. You definitely see the chemistry both on and off-screen with these two and I have to say it’s a sweet tender romance. Nothing over the top with details.

In the beginning, you can see that Carrie and Braxton are complete opposites but as the story progresses you see that they both have been hurt and are looking for the special someone but as they both begin to open up to each other you see their love growing and you can’t help but root for them both to get together in the end. Will they both decide to take this leap or will they both walk away?

I definitely want to read Kate’s other books especially if they are anything like this one.

Just an FYI there is even a recipe for Maple Glazed Gingerbread Scones which I definitely want to make really soon IE when I purchase all the ingredients I need for it.

    Hi, Cindy, thank you so much for the lovely post and for your thoughts on the book! I’m glad you enjoyed it and found some Christmas spirit between the pages. I’m a firm believer that life isn’t always happy, happy, even at Christmastime, so I try to put a little bit of real-life into my stories regardless of the time of year. That said, I had so much fun writing A Christmas at Gingerbread Falls and these two couples 🙂 Thank you again for sharing Brax and Carrie with your blog readers!
