Dec 27, 2017 rated it it was ok
A collection of holiday romances centered around Maximum Glide, the Telluride, CO ski resort owned by former Olympic gold medalist, Max Jorgesen, and his wife Grace. Now I like a good romance as much as the next girl, but when people meet and either fall in love or get married in one day, it is a bit unrealistic. Additionally, when Ms Michaels can't keep track of her own characters (she wrote all 4 stories in this collection) it is a bit disappointing. In the first story, "Making Spirits ...more

A number of sweet, predictable Christmas stories. They reminded me of Hallmark movies but wonderful to read during the Christmas season.
I won this book from Goodreads giveaways. I was not required to give a favorable review. This book was a wonderful collection of short novellas based around a ski area in Telluride, CO. It was wonderful. It story connects with the families and goings on. But brings in how with just a little help love can find it's way into everyone heart and makes for wonderful holidays stories. I love Fern Michael as a writer and is this is just another great book.

Four Christmas stories, some were better than others but all followed the same formula. It was really boring.

A WINTER WONDERLAND should never have made it past the first draft. It was a horrible love story and Angelica (the main character) should be ashamed. She's a wealthy lawyer who goes to a Colorado ski lodge to relax. She runs into a man who, in her eyes, isn't up to par. She thinks he's rude and a typical ski bum. When she finds out he's staying at the lodge, her immediate thought was 'He must have saved his money for so long to treat himself, poor thing." She comments on his

This book is a collection of 4 Christmas novellas by Fern Michaels. I picked up a copy as a bargain book. I enjoyed the first and third novellas, Makng Spirits Bright and A Winter Wonderland. Both of these stories had well developed characters. While the storylines were a bit unrealistic and the endings predictable, it was still good escapism reading. At this time of year I read a lot of Christmas / holiday books. I like to keep my reading light for the holidays. The second and fourth novellas, ...more

Oh good Lord. Someone PLEASE tell me WHY I keep reading Fern Michaels books when I know the "formula" like the back of my hand & how they're going to end by the end of the third page. I spend more time rolling my eyes & head slapping than I care to explain. I need an intervention. It's no wonder women have unrealistic expectations in relationships. We're being conditioned by books like this to believe all men are fantastic, sensitive, good looking, ridiculously wealthy & would NEVER ...more

Loved this book-a selecton of 4 hoiday romance stories, some funny moments and some amazing coincidences with characters.
Love is in the air in the mountains of Telluride,Colorado.

Its always nice to read a book that is set to where I live or where I used to live and I can mentally check the author's accuracy of details.

Four Christmas stories, some were better than others but all followed the same formula. Girl meets boy. Rude to each other at first but feels something they never felt before. Ends up marrying. Boring stuff! I like to read a good Christmas story this time of year. Looks like I'll have to keep looking cuz this ain't it!

I'm not sure if I'm just not a fan of romance short stories anymore, or if these ones were just particularly abrupt, but the first moves seemed to come out of nowhere, and escalated from there, in each of the four stories. For all the rushed nature of these relationships, though, it was refreshing not to have any sex scenes in them.
Dec 07, 2017 rated it it was ok
Ok, I think even lower than Hallmark. Let's be a little real, folks. Instant lust may happen but you don't automatically know you will spend the rest of your life with the character you meet in odd circumstances..even if they are a set up. Fairly good descriptions and characters, just a little shallow.

This book is a series of four stories that take place in an upscale ski resort in Telluride, Colorado. The characters are intertwined throughout the stories. In each case, a couple falls in love within a day or two of their first rocky meeting and decide to spend the rest of their lives together.

I love a good romance. This was a collection of stories centered around a ski resort in Telluride, CO. They're all the cheesy romance you could ask for without the blatant sex scenes. They were cute and a quick read.

Okay, but...

It wasn’t the Christmas book I thought it would be, but it was okay. You get four in one connected short stories, which I wasn’t expecting. And since I’m a little dense, it was hard for me to keep all the different characters straight in my head.

It's so cheesy you'd need a good wash after you read it. At the same time, totally in the spirit of the season and a guaranteed happy end without much bumps on the way there.

Some of the story's were quite good but the time frame for the whole events were a bit too fast to be believable.

This book is a good read if you want a quick, easy, and short romance novel. There is really no meat of the stories. It’s basically a short story. Very predictable outcomes. Christmas time romances.

Four lovely Christmas stories. set in the ski fields of Colorado, lonesome singles seek to escape the hurley burley of the festive season quite unprepared for love.

A collection of short novellas, these romantic stories with their fairy tale quality were perfect light Christmas reading, especially if you believe in Santa Claus!

Four short stories that are thinly connected. This fact doesn't take away from the stories. They are entertaining and enjoyable.
