Estelle - Jana – you are too sweet. I’m glad that you felt the same way about Let it Snow that I did. It’s such a great collection and I really wish I had the time to read it again. But unfortunately it may have to wait until next December 🙂 haha

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - This novel was a really cute read. I read it last year, around wintertime as well, and thought it was just a lovely, quick and fun read for the season 🙂

Magan - Jana, I agree! I think Estelle’s review is spot on, too. Estelle generously bought this book for me, and I read it over Christmas, too. I lovvvved John and Maureen’s stories. I felt like Lauren’s story was just a little too complex for a short story. There were issues that needed to be resolved in a larger time frame than she was allowed.

Aside from that, I feel like this should be a book I read every winter. It’s sooo good! Yay for you and Estelle introducing me to something awesome!

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - ESTELLE. I should just go edit my review and link to your review, and post “ditto”. I totally agree with and love your review! I felt the same about Maureen’s and John’s stories. They were amazing. Lauren’s wasn’t all that wonderful for me. And I know what you mean about caring about the characters so much! I just loved them! I was incredibly impressed with how much each story had to it. Everything was so well done. DEFINITELY a must-read. 🙂 Yay!!!
