Snowed Over by Angie Stanton
Genre: New Adult Contemporary – Release Date: 10/12/12
 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 Thoughts:
This novella really got me in the mood for Christmas time. It’s one of those stories you want to read while snuggled up on the couch on a cold winter day.

Alex and Katie were both great characters. I thought Alex was really sweet and I loved how protective he was of Katie. He was constantly looking out for her. I thought Katie was cool and that she was easy to relate to. I’ll admit though I was a little jealous of her character. I would have loved to have traded places with her. Who wouldn’t want to be stuck in a cabin with a hot guy during a blizzard? I know I wouldn’t mind it! 🙂

I thought this was such a good story! There was a little bit of drama and the romance aspect was really sweet. I’d definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun, cute read!

My Rating:
4/5 Stars
