THE SWEETEST GIFTS…Sam Bennett left a snowbound Colorado ranch for the glittering steel canyons of Manhattan—temporarily. Hard work was never this much fun as he sets up Christmas trees all around town. And now that he’s met Nicole Young, a gorgeous window designer, four weeks won’t be enough to romance her the way he wants to…
ARE THE ONES YOU DON’T EXPECT
But with Christmas around the corner, every day together feels like a blessing. And as the spirit of the season takes hold, playing Santa and helping out a small boy with a big holiday wish is a joy Sam and Nicole can’t resist. Neither of them imagines that they’ll be rewarded—with the kind of love that lasts forever…
“Janet Dailey…writes tales that warm your heart.”
—The Romance Reader
The charm begins and ends with the title of this weak holiday romance. The concept is winsome enough: Sam Bennett, a handsome and gallant cowboy complete with Stetson he only reluctantly removes comes to New York in December to help a college friend install seasonal decorations and falls hard for Nicole Young, a busy window designer trying to create enticing Manhattan storefronts. Bestseller Dailey (Honor) breathes life into her descriptions of wintry Manhattan, but never animates her characters. Her description of Nicole's job reads like a career guide, obscuring the romance, and a subplot involving cake-baking widow Maureen Fulton will have readers wishing Sam would sweep her and her children back to the Rockies with him and leave behind the tedious Nicole.
