Book Review: Let it Snow by Jeanette Grey

Let it Snow by Jeanette Grey
Published November 1st 2016 by Forever Yours
Baby, it's cold outside . . .

'Tis the night before Christmas Eve and Holly wishes she hadn't volunteered to work the night shift. The weather is frightful and getting worse by the minute, and the same old annoying carols are blasting from the bookstore's speakers. But Holly's holiday spirit returns when the store's sexy new assistant manager arrives to keep her company. He has muscled arms, baby blue eyes, and a sweet pair of lips she wouldn't mind meeting under the mistletoe.

Sam is glad the snow is keeping away customers-it gives him a chance to get close to his favorite employee. Holly has always been a mystery to Sam, like a beautiful present he'd love to unwrap. When they're trapped by a full-blown blizzard, Holly breaks into the Christmas cookie display. Sam busts out a bottle of vodka from the boss's office. Soon the two are trading heated kisses-as well as secrets neither has ever felt safe enough to tell before. What started out as one naughty night together turns into something so much more.
Usually reading a novella means something light and fast. I was surprised that Let it snow, being a short novella, didn't seem rushed or too light. I felt like the characters really connected and the author made time to really let us understand them. Holly and Sam are a sweet couple, at first they seem like superficial but they aren't. They have some family issues and their light and fun flirting really meant something more in the end. I liked that they weren't too innocent, they had some steamy moments that were perfectly ratural.

Overall, I really enjoyed Let it snow, it's what a Christmas romance novella is supposed to be. Funny. but heartwarming.

  1. That's great you really got to know the characters and felt it wasn't too rushed! You never know with novellas.
