This book was three separate young adult love stories written by three different authors, but they are all loosely connected. It all takes place in a small town after a blizzard on Christmas Eve. For a complete summary, you can go here.
Without paying attention to who wrote each of the three parts, I ended up liking the first story the best (written by Maureen Johnson) and the second story the next best (written by John Green). Which is funny because those were the two authors that I already knew, and I have enjoyed their other books. The last story was my least favorite. I really just didn’t like the main character or the message the story sent. The other two stories were a lot more exciting and cute. All three of the stories relied on adventure, friendship, romance, and Christmas miracles.
The short story format and light-heartedness of these books made this book a perfect read for Christmas time, when you are fitting in quick bursts of reading in between the plethora of holiday festivities. It was great for getting me in the holiday mood (especially living in Virginia with 50-degree weather and hardly any snow). I probably wouldn’t have liked this book as much if I was reading it any time other than December, but cheesy Christmas romances are perfect this time of year.
I recommend this book for people who are into love stories and Christmas. If you have read other books from these authors you would enjoy the writing style. I don’t recommend this book if you are a Grinch. If you are interested in buying the book, you can buy it here. After you have read it, leave a comment and let me know what you think!
