This week’s neglected book


Countdown to a Kiss by Colleen Gleason, Holli Bertram, Mara Jacobs, and Liz Kelly
Publication Date: December 23, 2013
Publisher: Avid Press

Four stories by four authors…one fateful New Year’s Eve

Four kisses at midnight…
Three different sisters…
Two old flames…
One bet that drives it all!

The Devine sisters return to their hometown for New Year’s Eve each year to attend the annual ball. Part of the tradition is their decade-old bet: whoever has no date at midnight has to kiss their nerdy neighbor Lewis.

Tess –burned by love, the glamorous Broadway star isn’t interested in a repeat performance…until she encounters an old flame.

Grace— the tough FBI agent has an easy time being one of guys, but is she woman enough to keep a man?

Annabelle– when the local etiquette expert gets caught breaking the law, her heart might have to pay the price.

Lewis—the shy nerd has made millions over the years…but is he smart enough to catch the woman of his dreams?

Who will lose the bet but win out in love? Four charming stories written by four different authors about one fateful New Year’s Eve.

The champagne is poured. The clock is ticking. Join the countdown!

Why did I add Countdown to a Kiss to my bookshelf?

It looks like I picked this book up as a kindle freebie back in July 2018 and promptly forgot about it.  Go figure.  The ebook appears to be free currently at most online retailers in the US if you are interested.  I have really liked Colleen Gleason’s writing before and wouldn’t mind giving the other three authors a try.  This one sounds like a pretty safe bet.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it to others?
