“Yes?” Her heart was in her eyes. Could it be possible that he would ask her to stay? Did it seem wrong to him as it did to her that they should part now? Surely he felt the very things she did.
Leaning in close, he kissed her one last time and then said, “Don’t write the article.”
How does a newspaper reporter choose between love and the biggest story of her career? The decision Finn Dalton, an eccentric reclusive author, forces Carrie Slayton, society page writer, to make is a difficult one. To compound the issue, Finn lives in Alaska and Carrie works for the Chicago Herald. Utilizing her best sleuthing skills, Carrie hunts down Finn and ends up trapped in Alaska during a snow storm.
Since this is Debbie Macomber’s 2013 Christmas novel, the setting has to have snow and the time frame covers Thanksgiving and Christmas. Of course, a slightly eccentric reclusive author would bear a resemblance in personality to the Grinch. The fun begins during the snowstorm and continues through to the Christmas holidays.
The books is a delightful story full of family, fun, love, and the holidays. The characters are entertaining and give the reader a spectrum of emotion. The plot is a bit predictable, but isn’t that why we read Christmas romance to begin with! I liked this book. A fun holiday read that put me in just the right mood to start prepping for Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays!
