Snowbound at New Year by Margaret Daley

Because his kiss is something she can't forget….

Cue the fireworks!
Happy New Year everyone!! Countdown to First Night is a lovely book. I liked the three stories, all of them were very sweet and I like family romances, you know, when one of the protagonist have kids and taking care of them comes first. I think the three authors managed this very well, all the stories had sweet kids and parent who weren't sure about having a romance.

I'm glad I read it in New Years Eve. It was great to get in the feeling,the three stories were so heart warming. Just what I needed for that time :) The romances were very light and sweet, but realistic, even when everything happened very fast (as always in short stories).

Overall, I loved Countdown to First Night. I think it was perfect to end the holidays!
