Summary:

Fern Michaels, the "New York Times" bestselling author of Late Bloomer and Crown Jewel, presents a passionate and heartwarming novella that will delight and inspire listeners every holiday season.

Right before Thanksgiving, a freak tornado descends on Larkspur, the small town in Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains where matriarch and candy magnate Loretta Cisco -- affectionately called "Cisco" by her grandchildren -- lives, and levels the home she's inhabited for fifty years.

Then there's more bad news: Cisco's beloved triplet grandchildren -- Hannah, Sara, and Sam -- all newlyweds, are experiencing marital problems but they refuse to confide in their grandmother. Sam's wife Sonia has left him and Hannah and Sarah fear that their husbands are having affairs. Why else would they be coming home so late every night and keeping secrets?

As the citizens of Larkspur help to rebuild Cisco's home in time for Christmas, she vows to work a holiday miracle that will hold her family together.

    I thought this book would never end and the only reason I finished it in the first place was that I didn't have anything else to listen to on my 45 minute commute to work everyday. The characters were totally unbelievable and the plot was so predictable I could have written it. (And I am not a writer, as you can tell) I was not impressed and would not recommend this book to anyone.

    This is the first Fern Michaels Book I have read. I almost didn't read it because of the reviews it had recieved. I am glad I did. It was a heartwarming wonderful read. I thought the characters were believeable and realisitic. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a feel good kind of book. You could incorporate things that happen in your family to this book. GOOD READ, WOULD RECOMMEND

    I don''t ususally write reviews, but I felt I needed to submit this for all you Fern Michaels fans. I am one, but this is definitely not one of her better works. The storyline moved very slow and was very predictable. The men in the story were a little unbelievable at best and the sisters were kind of whimpy. Needless to say, I really won't recommend this book, but I am still a fan.

    I'm not through with the book as of this writing, but as they say in "Texas...I'm fixen ta be". It's way too slow for my taste. Character's are dull and boring and I'll probably send back before I finish. Would not recommend.

    Cute story..there were some twists in the story line, but then the story seemed to drag on and on. The men started to appear really stupid in this story. Could have moved a little faster to the end result.
