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.
It was easy to immediately like both Katie and Alex, which made getting into the story very easy. I knew the story would have a predictable ending, as most Christmas stories do, but the getting there was fun! I liked that both Katie and Alex were flawed and not just perfect little people falling into a perfect little love. I also like the way they ended up snowed in together. I was expecting something lame (sorry, I am still new to the romance genre) but I like the way the truck plunges into the icy river. I don't know, it made it a tad more exciting than just say, getting stuck in a snow drift.
If you want to read a cute, sweet, but also often humorous romantic tale, then I recommend Snowed Over. Just be sure to grab some hot cocoa and an electric blanket first!
