I really liked how this novel told the stories of a variety of different characters from their perspectives. They are all having troubles at Christmas, but they learn that love, laughter, and friendship can make any Christmas bright and happy. I always love novels with great characters and I thought this one had that in abundance. I loved all their stories and how each story was tied up perfectly. I wish there could be a spin-off of this novel to see where everyone is in one year just because I loved the characters so much, but it did have a perfect ending as it was.
Samantha Desz was a good narrator of this audiobook and it was enjoyable to listen to on my work travels. I found myself sitting in my car when I got home to keep listening to the story!
Overall, White Christmas Inn is a delightful Christmas novel with a heartwarming story and a great cast of characters.
