About the Book – From Goodreads:
Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow. A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.
Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances consists of three separate stories that all take place during a holiday snow storm in a small town. The stories, each written by different authors, focus on separate casts of characters, and in each story, there are two characters navigating the slippery slopes of love.
This is a great lighthearted read for the holidays. It does revolve around Christmas, but there are characters in these tales that do not celebrate Christmas, too. The stories are all romances, so there is a bit of a gooey factor with this book. But the stories are also funny, and while there is some kissing and declarations of love, it’s not unbearably mushy. If you are looking for a good holiday read to flip through while snuggling by a fire or sipping hot chocolate at home (or in a Starbucks!), this could be a great choice for you.
My favourite thing about the book? Although each story was written by a different author, and focused on different people, all of the stories were interconnected. The tales all take place in the same town, and there are certain minor characters that are present in all three tales. Plus, at the end of the final tale, everyone comes together, which is really cool.
My least favourite thing about the book? For being a holiday book, these stories are not really centered on the holidays themselves. The theme of this book is really love taking place because of a massive snow storm, and the book could easily have taken place in the middle of January…the holidays were somewhat present, but not nearly as important as they could have been.
