Review: One Snowy Night

Book Review: One Snowy Night, by Jill Shalvis



t’s Christmas Eve and Rory Andrews is desperate to get home to the family she hasn’t seen in years. Problem is, her only ride to Lake Tahoe comes in the form of the annoyingly handsome Max Stranton, and his big, goofy, lovable dog Carl. Hours stuck in a truck with the dead sexy Max sounds like a fate worse than death (not), but Rory’s out of options. She’s had a crush on Max since high school and she knows he’s attracted to her, too. But they have history… and Max is the only one who knows why it went south.
They’ve done a good job of ignoring their chemistry so far, but a long road trip in a massive blizzard might be just what they need to face their past…

Genre: contemporary romance

Publishing date: November 2016

Mature content: yes

Review: I'm usually not a big fan of short stories - I feel that either they end too fast or I'm missing out something. But One Snowy Night seems to have the right measure of character development, plot, romance and happily ever after. No, the plot is not original and, in fact, mirrors much too closely the plot of the previous book in the Heartbreaker Bay series, The Trouble with Mistletoe; but for a a novella, it's pretty good anyway. 

 

Maybe it helped that I sort of knew the characters from the other two books, but to tell the truth, this one is my favorite in the series so far (can be read as a stand-alone perfectly too). With the others (Sweet Little Lies and The Trouble with Mistletoe) I always felt that there were too many characters around and too many things happening at the same time. 

Since One Snowy Night has a much less complicated plot, I found it easier to read and enjoy. Recommended for a cold winter evening and for the upcoming holidays season!

Happy readings,
