About The Book: Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster. Christmas takes a very different turn when the guests of honor break up instead of announcing their engagement. Trapped with his family, they learn that love looks different than either imagined. Both in their eighties, Dodie and Wilson Binder celebrate every Christmas as if it were their last. This year, their grandson Micah is planning to ask his girlfriend, Katie, to marry him so they can celebrate with the whole family. But things go very wrong when she says, "no." Now they are stuck. Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster. But sometimes too much is just enough. Especially when it's Christmas.

My Thoughts On The Book: This book would have been about my family. We had huge Christmas's like this every year until my mother's generation all passed away. This was a tender story and made me wish for that kind of Christmas memory once again. Ruchti did a wonderful job of building her characters and making them real, flaws and all. I loved being part of this family, even if was just for a little while. Once I began reading I did not want anyone disturbing me. My only problem with this book was that I was not ready for it to end. It was my first Christmas read of the season and I am so ready to celebrate like the Binder's now.
