What if you could have one more day with someone you lost?

Diana Merriman, a physical therapist, is probably the only person in the small town of Snow Haven, North Carolina, who isn’t looking forward to Christmas. It’s been three weeks since her fiancé Linus was critically injured when a car hit him as he biked home from the toy store he owns and manages. Watching him open his eyes is the only gift she wants, but she can’t help losing a little more hope every day.

But an unexpected visit from a friendly neighbor and finding a snow globe of Snow Haven—a gift Linus had hidden in the closet—the night before Christmas Eve changes things in ways Diana never would have imagined. Because on Christmas Eve Diana wakes up to find that it’s not—Christmas Eve, that is. Instead, it’s somehow December 4 all over again, the day Linus got hurt, and as mystified as Diana is, she immediately starts a plan to save her partner from his fate.

Nothing is that simple, of course. Instead of a single repeat of that day, Diana finds herself in an endless loop of December 4, experiencing every possible variation of events. Along the way, she uncovers startling truths about herself, her relationship, and even her career that illustrate the ways she’s retreated from her life—and in the face of life’s slights and outright blows, from her deepest feelings. Suddenly hope is second only to joy as Diana opens her heart to the people she loves in every way she can.

Holiday magical ROMANCE Sweet

I love the classic holiday movie, It’s A Wonderful Life, and admit to having watched Ground Hog Day more than once, so I was intrigued by Through the Snow Globe. The tale that Rains delivers was filled with the spirit of Christmas, hope, second chances, new beginnings and love.

Diana Merriman lives in the small-town of Snow Haven, North Carolina with her fiancé Linus. She is interviewing at her physical therapist company for a management position and isn’t exactly looking forward to the holidays with Linus’s enormous family. Her world gets turned upside down when her interview goes wrong and Linus ends up in a coma. Now all she wants is to see him for Christmas.

The tale that unfolds begins with a present found in the closet and an unexpected encounter with her neighbor. I loved it and nestled down under the covers as Diana began repeating that fateful day. Would she get a happily ever after? Find joy in her newfound family and career? The story offered some sideline stories about an orphaned boy, the toy store, and a teenager with cancer that will pull at your heartstrings and make you smile.

If you are looking for a feel good holiday romance filled with the magic of Christmas, I suggest curling up with Through the Snow Globe.
