Mistletoe and moonshine: a Christmas match made in heaven?

Moonshine Hollow’s famous ‘Lightning Flash’ might be an acquired taste, although the same could be said for moonshine distillery owner Cole Landon, what with his workaholic habits and ‘Scrooge’ tendencies when it comes to all things Christmassy.

But when Jenna Pendean from Cornwall pays a visit to Cole’s family-run distillery in Tennessee during the holiday season, will Cole’s cynicism about the existence of Christmas miracles be put to the test?

Now Available across most Bookseller platforms.

My thoughts

Welcome to Christmas at Moonshine Hollow where we meet the lead characters Cole and Jenna. They may have started awkwardly and under suspicions but they definitely do fall for each other.

The story is a mix of family dynamics and a love story. We see plenty banter, happy, romantic, swoony as well as tense and a bit dramatic instances. The back story is always there while the characters navigate the different phases of getting to know about each other, secrets and past hurts unravelling before everything settles around Christmas time.

I enjoyed being among the Moonshine family, getting to know a bit about making Moonshine and its history in America. The story is pretty well paced, characters sharp and quick witted with a bit of strong headed moments.

A quick read with plenty to swoon over and have a cosy reading time around the holidays.


Angela grew up in Cornwall, England and returns frequently from her new home in Nashville, Tennessee to visit family and friends, drink tea and eat far too many Cornish pasties!

A lifelong love of reading turned into a passion for writing contemporary romance and her novels are usually set in the many places she’s visited or lived on her extensive travels. Thanks to over three decades of marriage to her wonderful American husband she’s a huge fan of transatlantic romance and always makes sure her characters get their own happy-ever-after.

She is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, the Romance Writers of America and the Music City Romance Writers. Her first novel ‘Truth and Consequence’ was published in 2006 and she’s now had over 30 novels published internationally and several short stories in women’s magazines.
