Review Snowed Over By Angie Stanton


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

Katie's mum and dad have spilt and her mum has a new "friend- not the boyfriend" and wants Katie and her sister to join them for Christmas in his cabin. Katie arranges with a friend of a friend to give her a lift. Alex is engaged but has been trying to call it off - he doesn't want to be with her anymore. On the way a snow blizzard hit and after they have a near miss with a frozen river they manage to find shelter.

This story is so sweet. Its a lovely Christmassy Story That's gets you in the mood for the upcoming holiday.  This is a story that makes you want to sit down in front of a roaring fire with a cup of hot chocolate and read. There was nothing I didn't like about this story. Its a quick read, but you don't feel like its too short. 

I loved Katie and Alex. I think I held my breathe with the river scene. I would recommend this a build up to the upcoming holidays. 

This story gets 4/5 stars.
