Book Review/Giveaway: The Taste of Snow. Ends March 10th
The Taste of Snow by Stephen V. Masse
About the Book: When winter arrives in the Austrian Alps, eleven-year-old Nicole Kinders is ready for the taste of snow. Everything is beginning to show signs of holiday festivities, from the decorated shops inInnsbruck to the scent of cinnamon in the air. At the market stall on her way to school, Nicole gets a candy cane from Boznik, the shopkeeper. He tells her, “This, my dear girl, is a magic candy cane.”
From that day extraordinary things begin to happen.
Some bad. Extraordinarily bad.
Nicole finds herself losing the joy of holiday preparations, and realizes that the vexing secret she keeps is influencing every part of her life. Her hopes of having a magical Christmas take her on a journey beyond where any ordinary girl would choose to go.
My Review: On their way to school a local shopkeeper named Boznik offer Nicole a magic candy cane. To Nicole the candy cane did not look like magic but she paid for it and headed off to school.
She thought this would be a magical Christmas but strange things started to happen around her. Things were ont only going wrong, but they were getting worse. It was time she returned to the shopkeeper to give the candy cane back. With all the strange things happening, will Nicole and her family have a wonderful Christmas? Will the magic candy cane help make things right?
This is a great book for the family to enjoy at Christmas. It also comes with special recipes for Linzer Pig Cookies, Magic Hot Chocolate, Saint Nicholas Cookies and more with photos at the end of the book.
If you like a story that is full of adventures, suspense and moral lessons, the taste of snow is one to read.
