Surviving the holidays will take a Christmas miracle . . .


Ex-cop Cat O'Connor is bored working for her sister, Chloe, as a personal assistant on the set of her soap opera. Until Chloe gets an opportunity to audition for the role of a lifetime and asks her identical twin to substitute for her on the soap with no one the wiser. It's a perfect switch-until Cat attracts the attention of the mysterious Mr. Tall, Dark, and Way-too-handsome leading man.

Grayson Alexander never thought being snowbound in the charming town of Christmas, Colorado, for the holiday would get so hot. But between working with sexy, tough Cat on set and keeping his real reason for being there under wraps, he's definitely feeling the heat. And if there's one thing they'll learn as they bring out the mistletoe, it's that in this town, true love is always in season

Excerpt 
Chloe attempted to remove Fluffy's nails from her velour hoodie while staring at Cat with an appalled expression on her face."Why are you sitting on that man?"
"I . . . " Cat looked from her sister to the man in question. She was still sitting on him. On his rock-hard abs. Why hadn't she moved? Because everything happened too fast. It was the only acceptable explanation. It had nothing to do with being stunned stupid by his movie-star good looks.
He raised an eyebrow. What was with the sardonic look? Oh no, he was not putting her on the defensive. He'd broken into her sister's dressing room. Cat attempted to get off him without any further rubbing of her body on his, which wasn't easy. She gave up and awkwardly scrambled to her feet.
"About bloody time," she thought he muttered, but couldn't be sure because she was back to being stunned stupid when he flashed her a smile. A smile so gorgeous it belonged in a toothpaste commercial.
Pathetic. Cat was so off her game it wasn't even funny. Here she was thinking about his full, seductive lips and his perfect white teeth when her sister's life was on the line. Cat fisted her hands on her hips, put on her cop face, and went to glare down at the man. Only he rose to his feet with leonine grace, tugging the sleeves of his white shirt below his suit sleeves. She had to look up and took one step back, then another.
Behind her, Chloe sucked in a breath. Cat knew what that sucking sound meant, and it wasn't good. Her sister had gotten her first good look at the man. "Chloe, wait for me in the hall. I need to question . . ."
Her sister practically threw the animal at the older woman, shoving Cat out of the way with her hand extended. And there it was again, his smile. Only this one seemed friendlier, more genuine, and just as flipping gorgeous. She waited for her sister to react. She didn't disappoint.

My thoughts...


I can't tell you how happy I was when I first saw that there was going to be a series called based in the town of Christmas Colorado. I love Christmas so it was just perfect! Five books later and I'm still so happy with this series! 
I will admit out of all the books (any many of them are very emotional) Snowbound at Christmas was the hardest for me to read. It wasn't because I didn't like it...
I just couldn't stand Cat's sister Chloe! 
Now not liking Chloe makes for good reading. You can't help hating her and loving Cat. You really have to read the story to understand where I'm coming from. I don't like to give to much of a story away, I like for you to be able to read it and experience it for yourself like I did.

Like I said, I loved Cat, she was just so special. What she put up with for sisterly love was beyond the normal. Then add a hot guy that at first meeting thinks your trying to kill your pain-in-the-ass sister and it's on!

Of course Grayson figures it out right away that she's not guilty. But someone wants everyone else to think she is.

This is a great story! Many of the characters you love are back and creating havoc! Fans of Susan Mallery and Jill Shalvis will love this series.

I really enjoyed Snowbound at Christmas. It's kept my eyes glued to the pages and I couldn't stop reading until I was done. Of course I didn't want it to end...I also wondered if she was going to try and redeem Chloe in some future book and wondered if she could.

But until then, make sure to pick up this whole series and read it. It would make a wonderful Christmas gift for some who loves romances and Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!

  1. A great addition to the series, except that I've never wanted to choke a fictional character as much as Chloe! LOL Cat went above and beyond for her sister and the mother needed a swift kick, too. I'm glad Cat and Grayson got their HEA. Nice Review!

  4. Oh my gosh. Yeah she was retched! It's going to take a lot to win me over to Chloe in her book I think. I loved this one too. She really writes amazing books. So glad to see you love them too!

    1. I kind of can't wait to see what happens to Chloe because of how she acted. I do think we need some cooling time or she needs to act like Chloe's book takes place years late. Time for her to grow as a person. I love her books and always look forward to them.
