It's Christmas Eve and the worst blizzard for fifty years has blanketed Gracetown. But as well as snowflakes, love is in the air - and appearing in the most unexpected ways... Who'd have thought a freezing hike from a stranded train would end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger? Or that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow could lead to romance with an old friend? Or that the path to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks?


I wouldn’t have heard of this book if it hadn’t been for the Netflix adaptation, that we enjoyed as part of our festive film roundup. It was billed as a teenage Love Actually, featuring all these intertwining stories and on screen that worked really well.

On the page, the stories were slightly more separate - three individual things that went on in the same town, although by the time you got to the third, many of the characters had already been seen, and there were a few bits that did link back to previous stories.

I’m not sure how that works with three different authors, and it feels a little weird for that, but mostly, I liked it. Three romantic stories to pass the time and one of them includes a pig as a present. What’s not to like?
