Book Description

It's Christmas at Valley Rise Farm, the time each year when the Moss family, along with their friends and neighbors, gather to share love, laughter, music and the miracle of the season. But this year, for Carter Moss and Staci Henderson, there are more pressing issues to be dealt with. Carter has a new stepmother, another wedge in his already strained relationship with his father. Staci juggles school, a job and the recent loss of her grandfather, along with her mother's often unpredictable moods. To make things even more complicated, while they may have grown up together, been childhood friends and even confidantes, for Carter and Staci, things have taken an awkward and unexpected turn.
Join familiar faces from the Miracle at Valley Rise series and meet the next generation for an unforgettable holiday getaway. As always at Valley Rise this time of year, there's the promise of snow, a miracle or two, and of course, a little romance in the crisp mountain air.
Author's note--This is a novella of just over 43,000 words.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice & Cosy December 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Moss family are rich and famous; almost all of them are active musicians and travel around the world most of the time. But they all come together to the farm house at Valley Rise to celebrate Christmas - a large group of people of all ages.
As most families, the Moss' are not without problems: there is the new wife of a widowed father who is not accepted by his grown-up son; a young woman who always had her future neatly mapped out in front of her suddenly begins to think there might be something else waiting for her; a single mother finds her job both challenging and rewarding at the same time, and is too proud to accept anyone's help; and there is a romance between one of the Moss boys with the girl living at the caretaker's cottage.
That romance began very promising on Thanksgiving, but now, several weeks later, when the two of them meet again for the first time since that one kiss they shared, they are both unsure of their mutual feelings, and behave rather awkwardly.
These two young people are the main characters of this short book (172 pages, it says on the product page at Amazon), and a lot of space is dedicated to the emails they send to each other.
The general atmosphere of the place is depicted nicely, the family members are unique characters (although many of them are not described at depth, since the book is so short), and all ends well - as expected.
So, if you want obstacles for the romantic hero and heroine to overcome, if you like mystery and secrets, or if you have a thing for character development, this is not the book for you.
But if you are only looking for a cosy, light read before falling asleep at night, something that does not hold your attention overly long or challenges your mind, then I think you will like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mellow romance. September 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I sit down to read a book on the airline known as the Jets To Hell, I prefer a book that will calm me, with no angst and no stupid characters you want to strangle. This book was so relaxing I actually felt better getting off the plane than when I entered the flying cigar full of noisy seniors heading for Florida. God bless the author.

Thank you, Karen Welch...for the entire series "Miracle at Valley Rise". I have read every book in the series and they all are safely stored in my file of books that I will definitely read again and again. As i began reading Christmas at Valley Rise, I wondered if I could remember all the characters well enough to enjoy this book. Not to worry!! I was 10% into this book, and it was total recall of Stani and Emily Moss..their story, their love, and their family. Such a tribute to this author! Karen Welch can write stories, develop the characters, and weave them into a reader's heart so that they are remembered with a smile. I will treasure this series of books and now they will bring me such joy every time I read them. Tender, compassionate, resiliant people make up the Moss family. Thank you, Karen Welch for creating them for us to know and love...and remember!

I loved the whole Valley Rise series. The story of the family develops over the series of books. Their story kind of stays with you rather than fading away like most other books.
