    This is the first book I've read by this author. Though the premise of the story had promise, it wasn't carried through. Instead of being uplifting and inspiring, it was depressing to me.

    Gets you in the holiday spirit

    Light and fluffy and short but fun to read in anticipation for the Christmas holidays.

    Great but short.

    Review by Jen: I enjoyed this quick read. The plot was interesting, as well as the three main characters. The story is about three best friends, who are all at different places in life when it comes to relationship and careers. Kiley's just been dumped by her boyfriend for her sister. Suzanne is has a family, but is more career driven. And Allison is dreading spending the holidays with her family from hell. They pass between them a snow globe that seems to deliver Christmas miracles. The only one problem I had with this story was how short it was. I felt it could have used a few more pages as some of the stories didn't get as developed as they could have been. I came away from the book wishing there had been more. That said, I did still enjoy the book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good holiday read.

    A quick holiday read

    Kylie is down on her luck this holiday season. Her boyfriend dumped her (for her sister!) and she's recently unemployed. During a girls' weekend with her two best friends, she wanders into an antique shop. A snow globe catches her eye and the shop owner tells her its history. Believing in miracles, Kylie buys it and hopes it will bring good things into her life.

    As she prepares to spend the holidays with her family and her ex-boyfriend, she begins to see the scenery change within the snow globe. A toy shop is the main fixture and Kylie begins searching for the shop. When she finds it, she's surprised that the owner is a young man who is single and very cute. With the help of the snow globe, Kylie's holiday will be merry and bright.

    Suzanne is a busy woman: she's a wife, a mother and runs her own real estate company. She wants to have the perfect home which leaves her harried and always on the go. Having her doubts about the snow globe to begin with, she's even more skeptical when Kylie gifts it to her. One thing leads to another and Suzanne finds herself involved in a freak accident that leaves her immobile. Perhaps this is exactly what she needs to gain perspective.

    Alison is facing the holidays alone without her beloved grandmother. Her mother died when she was young and spending the holidays with her family is something she dreads. The snow globe helps her see maybe she isn't as alone as she thinks she is.
