Book Review - One Week to Win Her Boss by Barbara White Daille

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Amber is a single mother and she desperately wants to prove her independence. When an unfortunate incident forces her to leave her home she decides to stay in her boss's ski lodge together with her baby girl Penny. Amber is Michael's housekeeper and the lodge is supposed to be empty. However, Michael has made the last-minute decision to spend Christmas at his lodge himself. Amber doesn't have any other options that wouldn't include admitting defeat and fortunately Michael offers her to stay.

Amber likes her boss a lot. However, they both have different plans for the future. Amber wants to find true love and she'd love a big family. Michael prefers solitude and doesn't want to have children at all. Spending time with Amber melts his heart though. When her family tries to find a man for her he tells them she's already taken. It isn't difficult to pretend they're a couple, because they both very much wish this to be true, but they don't want the same things. Will there be a chance for Amber and Michael or are they simply not meant to be?

One Week to Win Her Boss is a wonderful romantic story. Amber is cheerful and positive. She loves Christmas and spending time with family makes her happy. Michael doesn't come from a warm and welcoming home and he doesn't understand how she feels. It was interesting to see how spending time with Amber made him slowly open his heart. I couldn't wait to find out if the short time they'd have together would be enough for her to convince him that Christmas is a magical time and that family can also be nice and not only nasty.

Barbara White Daille writes about a magical setting. Snowflake Valley is beautiful and I loved the festive atmosphere of the place. She makes it come to life in a great vivid way. The holiday charm of the story is absolutely amazing. This perfect background for romance put a big smile on my face. One Week to Win Her Boss is captivating, sweet and endearing. It's a heartwarming entertaining story.


If you like small town romance and love Christmas stories One Week to Win Her Boss would be an excellent choice.
