So when she is dumped by her boyfriend she returns home to Powder Springs to work in the bakery her family founded and ...more

Could have been better...

Some elements of this story were good. I liked the idea that Brinn and Tyler were both recovering from failed relationships and suffering insecurity. However, I was so put off by the ending. It seemed like the author was told you have to end the book in the next 5 pages and Go!

Really cute book. Only goes to show that you never know how someone feels unless you give them a chance to share.

A love story with a lot of snow.

The story of Brinn Bertoli and her family. Brinn and her mother own and run a bakery in a Colorado resort town called Powder Springs. Brinn feels a bit like an ugly duckling but she isn't. She is a compassionate, loving and giving person. Come and visit with the town's people and enjoy their idiosyncrasies and Christmas holidays.
