Speed Date: A Snowglobe Christmas

The Deal: A Snowglobe Christmas features two novellas set in the town of Snowglobe, Montana. In the first story - A Yuletile Homecoming - two former lovers reunite in time for the holidays when Amy returns home to take over her mother's gift shop and discovers that her former fiance, who broke her heart when he decided to join the army, is also back in town. 

The second story - A Family's Christmas Wish - features a carpenter, Owen, who decides to take a job at an inn helping out Sarah, the owner, in exchange for babysitting for his daughter. Owen is getting ready to leave town, a year after losing his wife has taken a new job far away, but his daughter and Sarah's daughter have other ideas in mind. 

My Thoughts: So, I was feeling the Christmas spirit and decided to read this little anthology... and I sort of reached the conclusion that the Love Inspired line isn't really for me. 

I found the first story a bit on the dull side and it took me a good long while to get into it. I liked the second story a lot more but it could have been developed a bit better, it was too short and a little choppy. 

What's a Book Speed Date, you ask? It's a quickie review--about 150 words or so--of any genre book (variety is the spice of life, after all).
