A Season of You: A Cloud Bay Christmas Novel by Emma Douglas

Setting: Cloud Bay
Genre: Holiday Romance
Publisher: St. Martin's
Release Date: October 3, 2017



Mina Harper's past weighs heavily in some of her choices. After hitting her head in the middle of a storm, she's happy that Will Fraser saw and was able to help her, but she wants nothing to do with him beyond that. He and his brother own the local distillery and that, to Mina, is a real problem.

A drunk driver killed her husband, and Mina will always blame alcohol for his tragic death. Her involvement in Cloud Bay's Christmas festivities put her in close range of Will on a regular basis. She can't help but admit that her attraction to him is growing. However, she's not sure that she will ever be able to move past her husband's death.

Strengths and Weaknesses


I admit that Mina wasn't my favorite heroine. I have never been in her shoes, but I know enough about myself to know that if my husband was killed, I'd be totally after the driver for his actions and not focusing on the alcohol. Her holding that against Will bugged me.

The story itself drew me in. I loved the setting and would like to move there, please. I also loved the holiday feel. The news is full of doom and gloom. I loved being uplifted with holiday cheer.

RTR's Bottom Line


I read this a month ago and somehow overlooked doing a review. A month later, I still find myself remembering the details. That's a plus! With so many books read each month, some rarely stick in my head after a week or two. Mina and Will's romance was honest, fun, and memorable.
