Snow Day Review


From Goodreads:

Tucker's Point three-day forecast:  stormy with a chance of romance. Prepare to be...

HEART OF THE STORM by Shannon Stacey

Brody Rollins is back in tiny Tucker's Point, Maine, for the first time in five years, and now he can't escape...from former neighbours, old regrets or maddening glimpses of his ex-fiancée.

SEEING RED by Jennifer Greene

Stranded at her grandfather's seaside cottage, Whitney Carr prepares to face the blizzard alone. But unexpected help soon arrives-in the form of her secret high-school crush.

LAND'S END by Barbara Dunlop

Tessa Ambroise is desperate to ditch the charming, infuriating hotelier circling her late aunt's century home like a vulture. But the snow piling up outside the mansion puts both their plans on hold.

When a child goes missing, this perfect storm of cramped quarters and freezing temperatures brings old flames and new acquaintances closer together...but will they go separate ways once the sky clears?

My Review:

These were not the best stories I have ever read but they were short, sweet, and fairly entertaining.  I enjoyed the first story by Shannon Stacey the most.  I liked reading about these two characters that try to find their way back together after being apart for so many years.  I also liked how all of the stories were connected around a horrible storm that has them all trapped inside.  Parts of one story overlapped into another and I enjoyed how they all were about  different people dealing with the same storm.

I would have to say that I enjoyed the last story the least.  I thought the end was unbelievable and the whole story just didn't work as well as the first two.  I think I would still recommend this one,  there is not a lot of substance, just some light reading about some cute couples.

My Rating: 3 1/2 stars out of 5.

I received this book from NetGalley for a review.
