Book Description:

Lexi Anderson is an up-and-coming, Martha Stewart-type TV hostess whose two kids love the Jared Strong adventure novels, which happen to be written by their new neighbor, Kyle Miller.

For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer’s block–until he sees the snowman on his lawn and realizes it’s the perfect solution to his plot problem. He digs in and discovers two things: one, his villain’s weapon will fit inside a snowman’s body, and two, this particular snowman was supposed to be the backdrop for Lexi’s next show.

From this improbable beginning comes friendship, but can there be a happy ending for a woman who is afraid to get close again and a man who has shadows from his childhood?

Families join together and hearts are healed as this couple goes walking in a winter wonderland.

 

Thoughts:

I acquired this book a while ago and took my time getting to it. Which I regret a bit because it was an adorable read.

I loved the totally original way to meet for the duo. The characters where intersting and thought out I thought. Even the family which my heart went out to over their tragedies and such. Were great. And Alexi’s wee ones where so adorable and happy. This was a good comedy, I found myself laughing but it was also such a drama. There was a darkness I didn’t expect when reading something like a comedy.

 

Characters:

Kyle Miller- Slayer of snowmen and creator of twists. A children author who can be a bit haughty and scrooge. But with reasons I understood.

Alexis Anderson- Otherwise known as Lexi, she is a up and coming Martha S. of the novel. She makes the scrooge see the christmas present, past and future in how I see this book.

Trista and Steven- Alexis children and really help to bring this book together. They are really quiet lovely happy children and know what they want for themselves and their mom.

Keefe, Kenneth, Kelly Miller- Kyle’s family and a posse of near to be scrooges, if Alexis doesn’t step in

 

Overall:

Great read, like in thoughts darker at times then I expected. Had me tearing up with tears of heartache and pain. But had me laughing at the same time. It brought you down low, and lifted you right back up. Leaving off at the best ending for this story. And for free~

Novella number 2 Kissing Santa is at $2.99
