Reviews Let It Snow

  • Julie
    Let it Snow by Nancy Thayer is a 2019 Ballantine Books publication. I have a handful of books written by Nancy Thayer on my Kindle, but unbelievably this is the first book Ive read by this author. While Ive heard good things about Thayer, this book was not the best introduction to her work, Im afraid. The setup involves a troubled and bored child, struggling with the divorce of her parents, a grumpy old man with a Scrooge like persona, a lonely ...

    3.5 starsIt was a joyful easy Christmas read but the "Inner Christina" needed to go.
  • Kat
    I seriously loved this short, delightful novella set on Nantucket at Christmastime. Christina is a local shop owner who runs a toy store. She befriends a girl who turns out to come from a troubled, wealthy family and meets her uncle Andy, the only decent one of the bunch! A sweet romance, and wonderful characters. I loved the conflict in this one, all the touches of the island Christmas, tree trimmings, Christmas dinners with family, and seeing a...

    Cute cozy romance! This was a fun festive holiday read reminiscent of a Hallmark movie. Nantucket, a toy shop, a sweet little girl, a grumpy old man, a handsome bachelor, quirky friends, and a main character with a big heart. A little cheesy, a little cliché, but sometimes thats just what I need. A cozy, cute, sweet, Romance that made me smile.This book in emojis ❄ 🎄 🎁*** Big thanks to Random House Valentine for my copy of this book ***...

Her parents recently died and this is her first Christmas without them. She befriends Wink, a little girl and through her she meets her family. This story gets you in the spirit of the holidays.

    I love Nancy Thayer's books and her summer book, Surfside Sisters, was one of my absolute favorites of hers, so when I heard we'd be getting a bonus Christmas book this year, I was really excited. Unfortunately, this one really felt phoned in to me - none of the vibe and feelings I normally get from her books and even for a holiday book, it was just way too predictable. I'll chalk this one up to a one off and be eagerly awaiting her next summer n...

    Three stars: A cute but predictable Christmas story that reads like a Hallmark holiday movie. Christina is busy prepping her Nantucket toy store for the holiday season. Unfortunately, Christina and her fellow shop owners receive notification from their new landlord, Oscar Bittlesman, that the rent will be rising twenty percent after the first of the year. The dismal news puts a damper on the holiday season, and Christina fears that her little sho...

Its in Christinas own shop where she meets 9 year old Wink under naughty circumstances, and soon after meets Winks (bitter and scowling) mom Delia, and Winks very charming and handsome, Uncle Andy.

    "Let It Snow"Written by Nancy ThayerReviewed by Diana Iozzia"Let It Snow" is a cheesy and sweet Christmas novel that takes place in Nantucket. Our main character, Christina, is preparing for the Christmas season in her toy store, when a young girl, named Wink, steals a few toys. In chastising Wink, Christina causes Wink to become upset. Wink's handsome and very single uncle, Andy, stops by, which causes him and our main character to begin a roman...

    4.5 stars!Nancy Thayer has put on her Santa writing hat and decorated for Christmas on her beloved island of Nantucket, just in time to bring us, Let It Snow. As I love her beach reads, especially this years Surfside Sisters, nothing can be better than celebrating Christmas with an ocean view.The small shops out on the wharf, once known as sheds, are gearing up for their brief but profitable Christmas season when they each receive a letter from t...

    I was in the mood for a Christmas book and picked this up. I just couldnt get into it. The characters felt forced and unnatural and I couldnt stand that she referred to talking to herself as talking to the inner Christina, it was a little strange and not my cup of Christmas tea.

    A wonderful Christmas story
  • Sadie Forsythe
    This is a hard book for me to review, because everyone's taste varies and this particular kind of book makes me cringe. At about the halfway mark I thought, "This is the sort of book people who like the Hallmark Channel would enjoy." It's completely true. At one point the main character even sits down and watches it herself. Unfortunately, that particular brand of wholesome, clean (read bland in my opinion), never rings true for me. I dislike it ...
  • Jamie
    Such a cute Christmas book. Quick read and predictable but I enjoy Nancy Thayer so it was worth the read. Always love reading about Nantucket and being transported to that area.

    From the book jacket: A Nantucket shopkeeper discovers that Christmas is the perfect occasion to make unexpected friendships to warm the coldest of hearts and maybe even find love. My reactions:Thayer writes a lovely, quick romance set against a charming backdrop of Christmas in Nantucket. The characters are mostly straight out of central casting: cute-as-a-button, precocious kid; gruff, miserly millionaire; salt-of-the-earth friends who rally ...
  • Jen
    Let It Snow was cozy and sweet and predictable and let me tell you, I AM HERE FOR IT. Sometimes, you simply need a Hallmark Christmas movie in book form and that is exactly what Nancy Thayer wrote. You have your quaint town, your sweet local girl, and the well-off outsider. They come together in a meet-cute, but of course, things must go awry when things are just getting good. Throw in a cute kid with moxie and pet cat and you are all set for a p...

    Well, it's snowing outside - so this seems a good book to read!I have read one book previously by this author so I thought it was a safe bet for a cozy book for a winter's day. This book is really cute and sweet and just the right length. Kind of a light-hearted Christmas Carol, complete with a Scrooge. There are fun characters. And interesting situations. It is also a clean romance. It is a little far-fetched in points. I mean, the main characte...

    I give this one a 3.5 stars. Cute story and fast to read. I love books like this and the fact I could finish it in less than 4 hours helped even more. Nancy Thayer is a talented author and I love reading about Nantucket.

    Let It Snow is a sweet and charming love story that is perfect to curl up with for an easy and light read. I love the Nantucket setting; it is easy to picture the shops, the weather, the scenery, and the hustle and bustle of the people. Nancy Thayer did such a fantastic job at creating such vivid, realistic and descriptive settings, and her pure and colorful characters fit in so wonderfully. I enjoyed this novel and can easily see it made into a ...

    A beautifully written heartwarming story that is perfect for the holiday season. Love and the magic of the season is in full swing on Nantucket where Christina is working hard in her toy shop when she befriends a little girl and her family, including a very handsome and single Uncle. I thank Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this great book.
