Snowed in for Christmas - Sarah Morgan

 Release Date - September 20, 2022

Let's talk cover art for a minute. I LOVE the color of the door on the front of Snowed In For Christmas. It's so inviting and drew me immediately to the book. If I was currently on a purple door and trim kick to #ENDALZ, I'd see about having this shade of blue. It's like the sky and ocean rolled into one.

Graphic design aside, the book is just as warm and inviting. I want to be part of the Miller family please. Ross, Clemmie, and Alice all dread the questions they'll get from their mum and grammy when they make the return home for a Scottish Christmas together. It's always talk about marriage, finding their soulmate, and grandchildren.

This year, Clemmie joking proposes that they create an imaginary girlfriend for Ross. She even chooses the woman for a job, a marketing executive, Lucy, who appears on the cover of one of Ross's marketing magazines. That should keep them from prying into Alice's relationship woes and Clemmie's lack of a beau. In a moment of desperation, Clemmie even tells her grammy and mum that Ross has a girlfriend, putting the pressure fully on him for a change.

There's a big problem, the imaginary girlfriend that Clemmie spies on the front of a marketing magazine happens to show up at the Miller home. Lucy's there in person and taken into the home believing she's really Ross's girlfriend. Worse, an unexpected storm hits and no one can leave. Even better, their granny wrote a letter to Santa asking for great-grandchildren for Christmas, and she really believes Santa will come through.

Snowed In For Christmas is a delight. I love this time of year. The weather bounces from 90 F one day to 60 F the next, putting me back in long pants and cardigans as my body adjusts. Curling up with a cup of coffee or Earl Gray and a cozy holiday romance is just my ideal way to spend a few hours. 

I loved the family, including the sassy granny, and want to be part of them. I'll join them for an afternoon of snowball fights, tea, and whiskey shortbread. In fact, the only thing missing that would have made this perfect is a recipe for that shortbread! I was hooked and am so glad I read it.
