For me, it wouldn't be Christmas without me reading one or two holiday books, and watching a couple of Christmas movies. The Snow Globe was chosen based on its lovely cover, and the story overview sounded perfect.
In The Snow Globe, the holiday season is anything but joyous for Kylie Gray. She's unemployed, and her boyfriend not only dumped her, but did so for her younger sister. feeling depressed, she allows two of her friends to convince her that a weekend away would be just what she needs. When Kylie wanders into an antiques shop, she spots a very old snow globe, and she quite taken by it. The last thing she should be doing is spending money on something so frivolous when she's out of a job. After hearing the shopkeeper's story about the globe's history and its power to mend a broken heart, she buys it. When she shakes the globe, the inside seems to change into a female that resembles herself, along with a handsome man, and a shop in the background that she recognizes. When she goes to the shop, she meets her prince charming. With her miracle granted, Kylie passes the snow globe on to her friends Suzanne and Alison who will also find their lives improving before long, thanks to the magical snow globe.
So if you need a quick, little, uplifting read, this may just be the holiday book for you -- no thinking required, yet it is a sweet story.
