SUMMARY: “Nothing short of a miracle can restore Eliza Hayward's Christmas cheer. The job she pinned her dreams on has gone up in smoke—literally—and now she's stuck in an unfamiliar, if breathtaking, small town. Precariously close to being destitute, Eliza needs a helping hand…for her sick young daughter's sake as well as her own. But she's not expecting her holiday hero to almost run her down with his car!
Rescuing Eliza is pure instinct for tech genius Aidan Caine. At first, putting the renovation of his lakeside guest lodge in Eliza's hands assuages his guilt—until he sees how quickly he could fall for her. Having focused solely on his business for years, he never knew that what his life was missing was Eliza and her little girl. But is he willing to risk hoping for a yuletide romance that could lead to forever?” (Adapted from Goodreads)
REVIEW: OK so… I started this book right before Christmas. I needed a hard reset after some heavier books and thoroughly enjoyed the first quarter of the story. The characters were lovable, sweet, and intriguing. But, as I continued to gloss through the pages the story a few things flatlined for me and were impossible to come back from.
★ While I absolutely fell in love with the characters of Snow Angel Cove, the corny (sometimes, pointless) dialogue and slooowwww plot line ultimately dragged this rating from a solid four stars to mediocre three.★
I’ll hand it to all of the fans of this series, I understand why it is beloved, but ultimately, I’m not sure this book series is one I want to dedicate my attention to in the midst of my ever-expanding TBR list.
Overall, a book I’d offer as an easy Christmas read, but wouldn’t write home about.
SENSITIVITY WARNINGS: Death of parents, death of a spouse, and serious illness.
