Snowbound - A Chicklit Christmas Novella by Monique McDonell

Snowbound: A Chicklit Christmas Novella 


by Monique McDonell

Publisher: Redfish Publishing

Publication Date: November 18, 2016


When Zara’s boyfriend can’t come home to Sydney from New York for Christmas she decides to go to him instead. Sure, the ticket costs a bomb, and her overbearing family thinks it is a bad idea, but that’s what you do for love right? Or so she tells the tall and hunky ex-basketball star, Kyle who is squeezed into the plane seat beside her.

But when a blizzard hits and she finds herself snowed-in in Denver a few things become clear – her boyfriend isn’t that heartbroken about her absence, the airport doesn’t seem like a very festive place to spend the holiday and there aren’t anywhere near enough pumpkin spiced lattes to fix the situation.

So, when Kyle offers to take her to stay at his buddy’s empty house, she decides to take a chance and make the best of her first white Christmas. What she hadn’t banked on was Kyle’s ex and a reality television crew crashing the Christmas party. 

If you like fun and flirty heroes, ugly sweaters, snow covered mountains and sugar cookies, you’ll enjoy reading Snowbound these holidays. 

My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. Actually, I bought it free off Amazon. All opinions are my own." That done, second, a warning.  I usually only read certain kinds of books, and well, I was drawn in by the cover, and the happy promise of chick-lit (which I do love) and well, you know.  I was not expecting a book with bad words or drinking or well, um, certain indoor sports.  So if you are the same type of reader I am, this is not your book. 

However, if you don't mind the above then this book was everything promised in the last sentence of the blurb above. Fun and flirty, ugly sweaters, snow-covered mountains, and sugar cookies. I might even capitalize the FUN part.  

A multiculture, cross-ocean, romance that is every bit as fun as promised.

This will not be a book for me with the bad words and other behavior I do not appreciate in books.
