Michelle has everything: good looks, a great job, a fancy apartment, and cash to burn. She also has a boyfriend, Valentin—her dream man. There’s just one tiny snag: his wife.
Valentin promised Michelle that as soon as his children were grown, he would leave his marriage to be with her. But when the time comes—and to no one’s surprise but her own—Valentin chooses his wealthy wife, leaving Michelle stranded in the French Alps. Michelle finds herself lost and without a way back to Berlin. Out of options, Michelle hitches a ride in a rickety pink Citroën with the attractive but ostensibly penniless David and his precocious daughter, Emma.
Over the course of their three-day trip, Michelle comes face-to-face with the life she’s created. With David and Emma offering a fresh perspective, Michelle redefines what love is, and wonders whether it might truly be pink.

What a beautiful story - just in time for Christmas! Heartwarming and mesmerizing. You won't be able to put the book down until you've come to the very last page. It is a whirlwind of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kawaanza. I truly enjoyed every minute of it. What an uplifting and witty book. The perfect gift, stocking stuffer or present for Christmas morn'. I can highly recommend it.
A wonderful Christmas tale for young and old!! A book you can pick up again and again, whenever you need a lift of spirits. And, to continue the introduction into this tale of love and renewal, Nous serons bien. Un nid de baisers fous repose dans chaque coin moelleux. We are so happy. In each corner lies a basket full of kisses. Arthur Rimbaud, "Reve pour Hiver" - Wintertraum. The Arthur Rimbaud of yesterday could not have put it any better than the Roxann Hill of today who has taken this timeless poem and turned it into true action: a lovely winter dream with the capacity of turning ever so wishful snow flurries into the reality of you and me: Our unlikely and stuck-up heroine, Michelle, comes to learn that her life (to include her fashionable name) had been nothing but a farce, nothing but a fake castle of broken dreams, but then when she does get the chance to redeem herself, she grabs the bull by the horns, faces her Angst and Weltschmerz and turns herself inside out - only to discover that true love does exist. The metamorphosis of the lame Michelle to the lovable Michaela could only be achieved by David, the handsome man who knows that deep inside of her is that very potential which could make him love her with all his heart. Throw into the mix - an adorable little girl, a dog, and a winter wonderland as the background scenario, and you found yourself in a fairytale that is so young, swift and ageless but at the same time also funny and utterly engaging that you wonder if dreams do come true. Well done, again, Roxann Hill!! I can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve... Oh, and yes, if you do look for that special gift this Christmas, or should you be looking for that special treat for yourself, this is definitely the book to choose. I am certain you will be in for a pleasant surprise. Happy trails, or better yet - Bon voyage! Detective Pat Castillo - El Paso, Texas
