Snowed In by Catherine Walsh
AD | Book Tour – it’s no secret that I am a massive fan of Catherine Walsh having discovered her this time last year when I hopped on the Holiday Romance book tour. She has a brilliant, easy to read writing style and books filled with great characters and stories, which is why when the opportunity came up to take an early look at her new festive read, I couldn’t wait to get stuck in!
Megan is dreading going home for the holidays. She’s the village pariah, the she-devil who left local golden boy Isaac at the altar four years ago and ran away to the big city. She could really do without the drama. Particularly as he’s engaged again, and she’s just been dumped for the fourth time this year.
Christian’s fed up of being on his own every Christmas. He doesn’t mind being alone, but he hates his family’s sad eyes and soft tones as they sit around coupled up. Because he’s actually, totally, fine.
So when Megan literally bumps into Christian in a Dublin pub, they come up with a pact to see them through the holiday season. They’re going to be the very best fake dates for each other, ever.
Rules are drawn up, a contract is signed on a wine-stained napkin. They will sit through each other’s family gatherings and be outrageously in love until freed from their annual obligations. After all, it’s only for a few weeks.
But with everyone home for the holidays, two big families to deal with alongside old friends, old flames and old feelings, things are bound to get messy. And when a snowed-in cabin and a little Christmas magic are added to the mix, anything could happen…
WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT SNOWED IN
This was such an utterly delightful read. When Megan and Christian bump into each other – quite literally – in a pub, they struck on an unusual arrangement to enter into a fake relationship for the festive period. As they head home together for Christmas though, lines become blurred.
I love love love Megan as a character. As a knitter that works in marketing, why wouldn’t I?! I also love how much depth both her and Christian have as characters. I also really enjoyed that the drama is Snowed In actually served a purpose for the story. There were no ridiculous twists shoved in for no reason and as a result the story flowed in a really organic way.
Snowed In was my first festive book of the season and I loved every page!
Snowed In is released TODAY – 1st November – and is just £1.99 for the kindle edition which is available on Amazon. An absolute bargain!
