Three couples are stranded in the blackout caused by the strongest snow storm in the last twenty years that’s enveloped Seattle.

In the first story Ellen is on the way to her sister’s wedding when the airport is locked down. She’s just about to rent a car when the power goes down. Luckily for her, the last car was rented to her sister’s future-husband’s best man. Unfortunately more than his best-man duty, Zack is concentrating on convincing his friend not to marry. On their way to Spokane, they s

I enjoyed these three short stories centered around the theme of a blackout in Seattle at Christmastime. The writing was well-done, the characters more than cardboard, and the plots intricate enough to keep me reading.

Loved 2nd two novellas; first was well written but not my cup of tea.

The three stories in this collection are all winners as far as holiday short stories go. I really loved the last one "Kiss Me On Christmas." The only problem I had with this set of stories is that only one of them really fit the imprint that they were published under.

There was absolutely no suspense in the first and last stories. Santa Under Cover was the only one that had suspense, thus it was a little light on the romance. A nice trade off, as these short stories had everyone jumping into bed

This book had three cute, brainless stories. I read this book in an afternoon. I really like Cornelison's writing and haven't read the other two authors so I was excited to pick this up. I liked all three stories and the ideas behind them. They even made me laugh!

However, I didn't have enough time to get to know the characters or get totally engaged in the plot. There just wasn't enough to each of the stories for me. There wasn't much character development so I just didn't seem to care how thing

Didn't finish the first two stories. Both used the "he kisses her to shut her up" scenerio. I HATE that cliche. It ought to be beaten, shot, set on fire and the ashes peed on. I thought it was a stupid scene the first time I read it, and it hasn't improved by the 100th time.

The second story also has the heroine thinking, "Hmm...we're being held hostage. I know, I'll flash the gunman!" Seriously???

The third story was the only one that I finished. It was a bit rushed, but that's not surprising, gi

Short, decent and not suspenseful at all, except for in the second story. A quick read and a fun change of pace.

Cute stories for the holiday season. It was an easy read. With the cold weather, it was a nice book to cuddle up with. I read it in 2 days. It reminded me a watching a Lifetime or Hallmark movie.
