Book Description:

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.

Badass Book Babe Review (Ami):   

I gave Snowed Over 3.5 stars.  Boy meets girl, boy and girl get stranded in cabin, boy is engaged, and girl falls for boy.  Anyone else see the train-wreck coming???

This book was an enjoyable short afternoon read.  I enjoyed the characters and this was a great feel-good book.  I enjoyed the plot twists and angst between the characters.  I feel the story would have been much better if we had gotten more in-depth with the characters and their individual stories, as well as more of a background story.  The story just seemed a little rushed to me and the book felt too short to really do the story justice.  Expanding on what is already here would have made this an even better read for me.

If you are looking for a steamy read, then this is not for you - BUT, if you are looking for a cute, fun, feel-good read that you can finish in one sitting, then this might be the book for you.
