Hallmark Publishing Presents “Christmas in Evergreen: Tidings of Joy” out Nov. 3rd!
Do you love Hallmark movies as much as I do? Well now you can enjoy them in book form! Curl up on the couch with your favorite mug of hot cocoa and feast your reader eyes on the newest Hallmark Publishing book, Christmas in Evergreen: Tidings of Joy released on November 3rd!
Available in paperback, e-book, and audiobook, Christmas in Evergreen: Tidings of Joy is a story that shows you that Christmas spirit can be found if you look within yourself!
Katie, an author struggling to write her second novel, heads to Evergreen, Vermont for a holiday retreat—only to get an assignment to write an article about the town. On the train, she meets Ben, a former big-city reporter who’s now a librarian in Evergreen.
Katie’s initially skeptical about Evergreen’s love of Christmas; the place seems too good to be true. Meanwhile, Ben’s wary of Katie’s intentions. He’s protective of his small town, and he knows all too well how cynical the media can be. Then a hunt for a fifty-year-old time capsule leads to a remarkable discovery. As Katie and Ben get caught up in the community’s past and present, they both begin to envision new possibilities for the future.
This incredible title is ready to be yours on November 3rd and includes a free Hallmark original recipe for Cranberry Crostini, featured below!
