by Angie Stanton

Blurb from Goodreads: To college student, Katie Brandt, ‘Home for the Holidays’ sounds like hell. When her parents separated, their holiday traditions shattered like a dropped ornament. What could be worse than celebrating Christmas with her suddenly single mom and mom’s new boyfriend?

Alex Walker, an engaged 20-year-old, dreads going home for his own reasons. He has a daunting task ahead of him and wishes he could skip the holidays altogether. So when a friend of a friend needs a ride north, Alex finds that having beautiful Katie seated by his side proves to be just the distraction he needs.

A simple ride home for Christmas turns into a nightmare when light snow rages into a full-scale blizzard. Katie and Alex find themselves stranded, and a vacant cabin becomes a haven from the storm.
Under different circumstances, time alone with Alex would be the ultimate Christmas gift, but Katie knows Alex is engaged and she must hide her growing attraction.

However, Alex harbors a secret that just might change this holiday from the worst Christmas ever, to the best.

My Review:
This is a really cute short novella about two people who get snowed in. It is a really enjoyable read, although I did wish it was a bit longer, because due to the short lenght there isn’t much depth. Still it was enjoyable read.

This book gives exactly what i expected from the blurb. A cute romance story with the christamas period as setting. It was a really cute book and I enjoyed reading it. Although I do think it is too short, there are some things that aren’t solved in this book and there isn’t room for enough background. Nevertheless it is an enjoyabe story.

I find it difficult to say much about the characters, because even though I liked the story I didn’t really connect with the characters. This is more about the story and the cute romance than the characters. There is some basis for interesting characters, but I think there isn’t enough attention to them. We do get to know a bit about the characters and their past, but for me it just wasn’t enough. I also think they felt in love a bit too fast, but well the story is too short for slow falling in love. The romance was nicely done and I think the ending was great, even though some things where left unresolved.

To conclude: a nice, cute and light romance story. The book was a bit too short and therefore there isn’t that much depth to the story and characters. Nevertheless it was a nice read centered around christmas.
