Review by wyvernfriend
Ah, Harlequin cashing in on Nora Roberts' fame by publishing another set of books from her backlist with a set that vaguely has an association with snow and Christmas. It's by no means her best work, both were originally published in 1984 and 1982 respectively and show the aged romance tropes of the time. Nora does a good job with the skills and tropes and produces okay romances, on these she should not be judged tho. Shane Abbott (this name did throw me a bit out of the story, to me Shane is male) returns to her country home town to find a new life for herself, she decides to create an Antiques shop and museum in her family home and asks a guy who is renovating his own house to help little knowing that the grumpy neighbour is in fact dealing with a lot of issues including his wife's murder and distrust of everyone. Pretty predictable but readable.I've read Song of the West before, still this cowboy meets out-of-town girl and discovers that he wants her is harmless entertainment.It's not the best she has done but I found them quite readable and diverting, I was looking for a bit more Christmassy to get me into the season but otherwise it was fun.
