Sometimes love needs a little help from Mother Nature—and what better time than the holidays to let it snow . . . and snow . . . and snow . . .

STARRY NIGHT * Fern Michaels

As the host of a radio program for the lovelorn, Jessie Richmond is surprisingly lonely, especially with the holidays approaching. So she decides to make the trek to her uncle’s bookstore in rural New York state and hold a speed dating event—only to find herself snowed in—with one very special single . . .

MISTLETOE AND MIMOSAS * Tara Sheets

After years of hard work, real estate agent Layla Gentry has her dream home on Pine Cove Island. She’s perfectly content to be on her own. Until her childhood nemesis, Sebastian, comes to town. When a snowstorm and a stranded kitten bring them together on Christmas Eve, Layla discovers he’s all grown up—and she may have one more dream left . . .

MISSING CHRISTMAS * Kate Clayborn

It’s all work and no play for two longtime friends-turned-business-partners Kristen and Jasper—until an unexpected kiss turns things personal. Will it mean the end of something, or the beginning? With a major contract in the balance, Christmas around the corner, and a lot of unspoken feelings, it may take an unpredictable blizzard in New England to seal the deal . .

This was exactly what I needed right now! I’m super late to both read it and review it but as I don’t have as much time now-a-days, I was waiting for the Christmas spark to finally hit me and alas, it did!

This is the perfect Hallmark book! There’s three romantic stories all passed during Christmas written by three different authors. They are all different in ways but they all felt like the perfect Christmas movie to me. Christmas is my fav time of the year and these definitely made me feel all warm and toasty ready for a winter night!

The first story was perfect for me. It was a subtle romance with a bookstore setting and I couldn’t be more in love.

There’s something for everyone in here, three different romance stories – nemesis to lovers, business-partners to lovers and of course the “I just met you but holy mistletoe I think I love you” which I unexpectedly loved. There’s also Christmas lovers, grinches, kitties (Who doesn’t love a kitty, right?!) and all the cuteness you can think of.

It was just incredibly cute and the much needed happy jolly book I was craving for. Definitely getting this one to re-read during the holidays! Swoon!

Series: Standalone

November 29th 2012

With A Christmas Carol Charles Dickens created a modern fairy tale and shaped our ideas of Christmas. The tale of the solitary miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who is taught the true meaning of the season by a series of ghostly visitors and given a second chance, was conjured up by Dickens during one of his London night walks, who “wept and laughed” as he composed it. Taken to readers’ hearts for its humour, compassion and message of redemption, it remains its best-loved book.
