Publisher's Summary

PG-RATED FUN

Lexi Anderson is an up-and-coming, Martha Stewart-type TV hostess whose two kids love the Jared Strong adventure novels, which happen to be written by their new neighbor, Kyle Miller.

For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer's block - until he sees the snowman on his lawn and realizes it's the perfect solution to his plot problem. He digs in and discovers two things: one, his villain's weapon will fit inside a snowman's body, and two, this particular snowman was supposed to be the backdrop for Lexi's next show.

From this improbable beginning comes friendship, but can there be a happy ending for a woman who is afraid to get close again and a man who has shadows from his childhood?

Families join together and hearts are healed as this couple goes walking in a winter wonderland.

It's a novella of about 100 pages. The paperback version will be available soon.

Sickly sweet

I couldn’t get through this. It was just too sickly sweet for me and I don’t think the way the narrator read it helped. Not a bad narrator. Just too girly-girl which added to the “sweet”.
Oh well, just not a story for me.

A Fun Read

What I enjoyed:

• A very fun read anytime of the year.
• I liked that the author threw together a writer's block author who hated Christmas with a TV talk show host who specialized in decorating and cooking for Christmas.
• I liked Kyle, who was famous for writing Jared Strong mysteries. I am a sucker for a misunderstood writer.
• The children in this story added to the storyline with their cuteness.
• I like the funny banter between all of the characters. A good laugh makes my day.
• This was a clean read. But that doesn't take away from the romance between Kyle and Lexi. I liked that their romance developed from a friendship.
• This was a romance between two very kind people who had admirable qualities.
• The descriptions of locations and emotions were well done and easy to visualize and to feel. I felt a part of the scenes.
• There was a smooth, coherent flow to this book. The author's writing style was witty, vivid, and clear.
• This story had a satisfying ending.
• This novel was a clean read and I appreciated that.

little too much church and God for me

Little too much church and God for me. The pastor just expects to see the new woman in town at church in Sunday. It was too much that the one church was the ONLY church, which is too much pressure. A few God references and this type is not for me. Still it was light enough for me to enjoy the story. The biggest plot issue was how fast the romance happens. They don't even really know each other.

It was okay. Cute Christmas read

Narrator did a great job. The story was cute. Perfect for a quick Christmas read. I could definitely see it as a Hallmark movie.

Awful book and worst narration..



This is definitely not my kind of author. Too much God and religion and talk of miracles and too many men crying. The grief they felt over the mother/wife dying, 22 years ago, was somewhat ridiculous. Why the heck would you want to carry that around with you for all those years? The ONLY reason I finished it was because it was only 96 pages long.

I liked Kyle but his grief was so bad you got the impression he was going to pass out from it while they were shopping for Christmas ornaments. He was 9 when his mother died and the family hadn’t celebrated Christmas in all that time, since she died on Christmas Eve. Really? And the tears and sadness when Lexie suggested they talk about “mama” was unbelievable. This author was trying for a heartfelt story but all she got was one totally crazy.

It was silly with Lexie lying to her kids and making them miss Kyle’s book signing at the beginning and when she kept calling Kyle a “snowman murderer.” And Lexie was a little too perfect for me. Couldn't she have, at least, one flaw, other than making bad fudge? She was the new Martha Stewart, with her own TV show and she did everything perfect (except the fudge.)

There was one kiss at the end of the story. There was no swearing and all any of the adults drank was eggnog and hot cocoa. It was so rated-G it was nearly disgusting.

As to the narration: Anne Johnstonbrown had the men sounding like women but the hero’s voice was the worst, and she read without emotion. I would never recommend this narrator.

Sweet story

Not too overdone, sprinkled with wry humor. I especially enjoyed the narrator’ voice. I would recommend for light, listening.

Too cute to end

If you just want a cute romantic book against the backdrop of christmas, this is the book you want. The length is just about the right, i insisted listening until late on a work week cause its just too cute to let go.
