TITLE: Let it Snow
AUTHOR: Nancy Thayer
PUB. YEAR: 2019
SETTING: Nantucket Island
RATING - 4/5
Set on idyllic Nantucket Island, a place where even the winter snow is magical.
Christina Antonioni operates a toy shop on the island. This Christmas instead of comfort and joy, Christina learns that her rent at the shop is about to increase making her wonder if she'll be able to stay in business. As fate would have it a 9 year old shoplifter with a close connection to Christina's landlord, Oscar Bittlesman, the richest man on the island, may help her to plea her case. As Christina gets to know the Bittlesman's family better she also gets an unexpected Christmas surprise she hadn't planned on.
I really liked my first Christmas read of 2019. The characters were charming and the story memorable. Even though the ending was predictable and a bit abrupt, I still really enjoyed this one.
