Jubilee is prepared for the greatest Christmas ever. A giant snowball of disaster ruins Jubliee’s perfect Christmas plans when she hears the news of her parents’ arrest. Jubliee’s parents’ most recent attempts to acquire a few rare pieces of Flobie Santa’s Village resulted in a riot and a trip to jail. Now, instead of spending Christmas with her boyfriend, Noah, Jubilee is forced to hop a train to Florida to spend Christmas with her grandparents. Jubliee’s Christmas debacle goes from horrible to bizarre when her train gets stuck in a snow drift while passing through Gracetown. Jubliee encounters of variety of interesting characters such as Jeb, a moping guy with his ex on his mind, a group of over-excited cheerleaders, the geek squad working the midnight shift at the local Waffle House, a man wrapped in tin foil, and Stuart, Jubliee’s shining star in the midst of the gloom.

Tobin, JP, and the Duke plan to experience Christmas and endure the biggest snowstorm ever with a James Bond marathon. One phone call changes everything. Their friend Don-Keun is a manager at the Waffle House, which has been invaded by a large group of cheerleaders. Each of the other employees was allowed to call one friend. The first group to arrive at the Waffle House with the game Twister can stay. The trio decides to embark on the dangerous trek to the Waffle House to the promise of cheerleaders and hash browns. Obstacles including a snow bank, a set of determined twins, and an unexpected romance plant themselves firmly in front of the intrepid three.

Addie can’t believe Jeb stood her up. Her Christmas is completely ruined. Addie’s friends aren’t really any help in convincing her to cheer up. In fact, they seem to do the opposite. After a heated discussion among the three girls, Addie agrees to make amends by picking up Tegan’s new baby pig from the pet store during her break from work at Starbucks. The task may seem easy, but exploding sinks, a bus of senior citizens, and a man wrapped in tin foil get in the way.

The three stories, all written by popular young adult authors, intertwine with one another throughout the different settings and people of Gracetown. As you read the stories, the connections will surprise you. Not to mention, Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances is laugh out loud funny (seriously, I did quite often) and sure to put you in the holiday spirit.
