One Week To Win Her Boss is a splendid holiday romance by Barbara White Daille. Ms. Daille has delivered a well-written book packed full of amazing, lovable characters. Amber and her daughter are forced to stay at her employer's lodge when her power is turned off, not knowing he would change his plans and show up there also. Michael is escaping from his dysfunctional family's holiday gathering. Their story is heartwarming and has plenty of drama, humor and spice to keep the pages flying. I enjoy ...more

One Week to Win her Boss was the best kind of holiday story. It gave one person who does not believe in the magic of Christmas into a believer again. It also is the story of how a town comes together to bring the magic of Love to a single mother Amber, who, from the very first, was drawn to her boss and she knew that helping Michael believe in Christmas again would also make him believe in love and family again.
When a stormy Christmas Eve brings them together again, in Michael's lodge, Amber wh

Ms. White creates tales of all encompassing love. It's so easy to hand over your heart and forget to ask for it back. Family meets romance and the rest is history. She slowly reveals the meaning of love with a sweetness that is as erotic as any naughty novel. Heart is sprinkled on every page and permeates each character and word that works it's magic on the romantic in our souls. Love is the greatest factor and it serves as a beacon to guide both the characters and readers home. One Week to Win ...more

A sweet Christmas story in a quaint small town. The 2 main characters, one full of Christmas joy and the other a total Scrooge, come together on a spur of the moment decision. The story is full of family and small town seasonal festivities. A quick and easy read.

Amber wasn’t expecting Michael to show up at his lodge in Snowflake Valley for Christmas week, he was supposed to be with his family for the holiday. So she felt safe in making a somewhat extended visit to the lodge where she worked as housekeeper/hostess during his absence. She’d helped out a friend with a loan but he hadn’t paid it back in time to help herself keep the electric on in her apartment – so it was either stay here at the lodge with her daughter Penny or

As some of you may know from reading my reviews lately I LOVE Christmas stories. There is just something about a good romance story set at the magical time of year. One Week to Win Her Boss is one of those incredible stories that has all the ingredients that make it a fabulous story. There is romance, family, kids, Christmas, family drama, and romantic drama. The drama that makes you wonder how in the world these two people are going to work everything out.

Snowflake Valley is a town where Christmas is celebrated all year round. They have holiday inspired names for businesses such as the Candy Cane diner and the Holidaze gift shop. They also give cutesy names for their foods: Reindeer Roast Beef, Snowball Smashed Potatoes and Yuletide Yams. Snowflake Valley sounds very much like a town a few hours away from me. Both towns (mine and Snowflake Valley) are definitely not places a Grinch would ever love to visit… yet this is where Michael’s lodge was l ...more

Amber Barnett is baby Penny's mother. She suffers from being one of the unlucky Barnett sisters (or so she believes). Her latest episode of her ex-husband walking out on her when she tells him she's expecting followed by her loaning money to a friend who doesn't pay her back. Those situations lead her heat to being turned off, so she decides to crash at her boss' Snowflake Valley home assuming he is visiting his family elsewhere for the holidays. Amber could have turned to her family, but she wa ...more

One Week to Win Her Boss by Barbara White Daille is a super-heartwarming story. Perfect for this time of the holiday year. And for this time in America when so many of us need desperately to renew our belief in things like love, family, the possibility of nurturing relationships and the miracle of folks among us finding a way to overcome their emotional damage. All of that in this book, which is at heart an inspiring experience of family and optimism. I have seldom met a more optimistic, resilie ...more

I LOVED this story!! It's excellently written and these characters are amazing. It's a great story of determination, hope, and love yet it's light and fun.

Single Mom Amber Barnett has nowhere else to go when her power is disconnected after she can't pay the bill. So she heads to her bosses ski lodge where she works as a housekeeper and is hoping to spend the week without anyone noticing.Since her boss is hardly ever there it shouldn't be too hard until of course he unexpectedly turns up!

Up front I admit I’ve known Barbara White-Daille for many years and have looked for her books every time I visited a bookstore but never found any.

I won this book through a giveaway.

I don’t read a lot of romances. My taste runs more to mystery and thrillers. Having said that, however, I admit I do enjoy them periodically. After reading a string of mysteries and thrillers, they are the equivalent of sorbet – cleaning my mental palate of the aftertaste of grit and violence.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the quaint lodge where the story took place and also the quaint town with its cute Christmas names. The part I liked the best was the anticipation of Amber Barnett and Michael DeFranco becoming a real couple. It was like opening a gift on Christmas day. You want to savor and cherish it because it is special and you do not want to spoil the memory. I want to read other books in this series and other books by Barbara White Daille.
I received an advance copy
This was a sweet holiday read. I am a watcher of all things Hallmark Channel and this story fits the bill. A very sweet single mom wants to make everyone happy and has Christmas spirit in abundance. A bachelor who is, pretty much, anti family and relationships. Amber starts working her magic on him and showing him what family really means.

ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

About me: my faves in life are chocolate, romance, and reading - and, of course, my DH (dear husband). ;) Exercise and housework...well, not so much.

About the writing: Short contemporary, small-town romance, usually with kids, quirky characters, and a touch of humor. All my books, even in series, are stand-alones with each hero and heroine reaching their Happy Ever After by the end of their story
