Emma Burcelli has given up on romance. Not just because
she's suffered over a decade of dating disasters. Not
because her parents' marriage ended on New Year's Eve. No,
Emma concludes that love is officially dead when her
grandfather Poppi passes away, leaving the last true
romantic's other half, Nona Burcelli, devastated.
Emma helps by working in the family's bookstore, which Nona
insists must be completely decked out in sweetheart décor as
Poppi would have done for Valentine's Day. Although Emma
feels like a V-Day Scrooge, she quickly learns to enjoy the
task with the aid of a handsome volunteer and friend of
Poppi's, Lane Forester. As Emma spends time with Lane,
sharing stories about Poppi, ice skating in the street, and
hanging hearts to the tune of Dean Martin, she reconsiders
the possibility that romance is alive.
But just as Emma's heart begins to lift she learns her
sister has already staked a claim on Lane's affections.
Emma's mother and sister insist Lane only sees her as a
future sister-in-law, but Emma can't help wondering if it
could be something more.

Re: Once Upon a Winter's Heart
Such a sweet sounding book. Makes the romantic in me come

I sort of get cheated on Valentine's Day, because it falls a couple of days after my Wedding Anniversary. My Husband sort of lumps everything together, but since we've been married for so long, and since right now we've been going through some rough times, he figures, in His mind, that it gives Him a free pass. I've always been a hopeless romantic, and don't expect things like diamond bracelets, although the thought would be nice, but a small gesture like a card, at least, would be nice. Your book sounds really cozy and sweet, and I'm really looking forward to reading it.
