Review: Let It Snow by Nancy Thayer



Blurb from Goodreads:
A Nantucket shopkeeper discovers that Christmas is the perfect occasion to make unexpected friendships, to warm the coldest of hearts--and maybe even to find love.

Christina Antonioni is preparing for the holidays at her Nantucket toy shop, unpacking last-minute shipments and decorating for her loyal Christmas shoppers. But when her Scrooge of a landlord, Oscar Bittlesman, raises her rent, it seems nearly impossible for Christina to continue business on the wharf.

Even so, Christina firmly believes there may be a warm heart underneath Oscar's steely exterior. When she bonds with Wink, his sweet, young granddaughter who frequents the shop, it becomes clear that perhaps he isn't so cold after all. And with the help of Wink's uncle, who happens to be a charming (and extremely wealthy) bachelor, this may be the best Christmas any of them could have ever imagined. Nancy Thayer's enchanting Nantucket setting provides the perfect backdrop for this holiday love story.

My Review:
 
This was chaste and sweet to the point of making my teeth ache -- it honestly did not read nor feel like a Nancy Thayer book at all!  I've read many of her summer books and even a few of her winter books and this was different from all of them.  It was just beyond wholesome to the point of making me roll my eyes several times.  I would skip this one and head to her backlist for some really fun books.  

Let It Snow comes out next month on October 9, 2019, and you can purchase HERE
"Mom, I want to fall intro true, deep long-lasting love like you did with Dad." 
"Not everyone gets that," her mother told her. 
"We want to be sure you've got someone to take care of you," her father said. 
Those were fighting words for Christina. "I can take care of myself!" she declared.
"Oh, honey, we know that," her mother told her. "It's the little things we worry about. Like who will bring you aspirin when you have the flue. Or who will meet you at the ferry after you've gone off for a day's shopping." 
Christina's mother had a gift for knowing that the small, seemingly inconsequential things mattered.

Today I am spotlighting the trope of:  My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend , which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother. I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton

Today I am spotlighting the setting of:  Libraries and Bookstores , which I would loosely define as any book that largely takes place at a library or bookstore or involves characters that work at a library or bookstore. What could be more lovely to a book lover than a book with characters that also love books?!  I love this mix of genres with this setting -- cozy mystery, contemporary romance, UF, YA, romantic suspense, sci-fi. I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let me know! Have you ever read a book set
