Meh. I think these stories had some potential, but none of them even came close to living up to it. There was way too much silliness on all three heroine's parts for me to overlook, and in all three the problems that had to be overcome in order to get to the HEA seemed to have been solved with the wave of a magic wand. Or perhaps a sprinkle of fairy dust. Either way, they were all fixed way too quickly and without any substantial effort or reasons behind them.Was this review helpful?

There is 3 novella s that mainly take place New year Eve in Snow Falls, Colorado-on First Night. The main complaint is I wanted more. All three stories are a clean read. Each one had children being raised by a single parent. Love all the kids and thier joy.
Winter's Heart by Jillian Hart
Shelby Craig is down on her luck. She lost her husband a cop before her second child was born. Now they are almost homeless and she is coming to Snow Falls to stay with her grandma and at least as a few days work for the First night at the bakery in town.
She is almost to her grandmas when she gets a flat tire. A cop pulls her over and she has expired plates.
The cop Deputy Winters recongizes her after a while as the fist girl who broke his heart at 10. He lives next to her grandma house still.
Snowbound at New Year by Margaret Daley
Ellie Summers childrens author has come for the first night festivals from the east coast. She is to open the first night and give a talk,read her book. Really she agreed because she needs to talk to her new illustrator not really working out. If they cant get together on what she wants she will need to find a new one fast.
Ellie decides to meet with him now instead of in a couple of days. She gets directions and travels up the mountain. The weather takes a turn for the worst. She is snowed in.
Brody has not told his twins that he might be working with thier favorite author.
They want him too they also want to matchmake for thier father. They are cute girls. What a handful they are.
A Kiss at Midnight by Brenda Minton
Jolie Godwin is a artist who had a rough childhood. She has had hard feeling for Jake Wild the hotel owner. He fired her father years ago. Last year they shared a kiss at New year.
Jake Wild has a hard time trusting women. He has just got custody of his niece who has hearing problems while her mom is in drug rehab.
I don't want to say too much about these books since they are so short. Makes me want to go to First Night. They are cute stories.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley.
01/02/2013 PUB Harlequin Harlequin Anthology 320 pages
Posted December 28, 2012
Countdown to First Night -Jillian Hart, Margaret Daley & Brenda Minton This Harlequin Anthology takes place in Snow Falls, Colorado. As the town prepares for First Night, the countdown to New Years, we find our characters in and about town for different reasons. The three authors have done a fantastic job with each story as they take the reader through the snow filled beauty of the mountains during this celebration. You may even catch glimpses of the characters before meeting them in their own stories. Winter’s Heart By Jillian Hart Shelby Craig’s life couldn’t get much worse, she hoped. A widow, a mother, no home, no job and her old car was definitely on it’s last days….maybe minutes. At least they made it to Snow Falls where they’d be staying with her granny until she could find a new job. And at least through the First Night Celebration. When she sees her childhood friend, Ronan Winters, it’s like all the years between have vanished. Can these two bruised hearts beat again and find love? Snowbound At New Year By Margaret Daley Ellie Summers writes a children’s series. She has come to Snow Falls during the First Night celebrations to meet with her new illustrator and as guest celebrity for the First Night countdown. She ends up gaining much more than she ever expected from her time in the snowy town. Brody Kincaid is content living on top of the mountain, away from people, and raising his twin girls. He had his one true love and lost her and closed her heart and mind to ever finding love again. He didn’t expect Ellie. Her beautiful attitude and kind heart along with the way she immediately took to the girls. Maybe a second chance is possible after all. A Kiss At Midnight by Brenda Minton Jolie Godwin has never felt like she fit in with the other towns people. She always felt that they viewed her as the daughter of Mac Godwin….the man who stole from his wealthy employer and was fired for it. She just couldn’t let the past go and accept that she was making her own way as an artist. If only she could fight her attraction to Jake, the same man her father had stolen from. Jake Wild was more than just the wealthy owner of the Wildwood Lodge and one of the most sought after bachelor’s. Most women only cared about those things though. Not Jolie. She seemed to do her best not to get close to him. Can these two put their rocky pasts behind them and make a new start on this First Night celebration? **Received through NetGalley for reviewWas this review helpful?
