It’s 91°F/32.7°C while I’m reading about blizzards, ice, snow, freezing temperatures, Christmas and New Year’s. I wish I could say that it made me feel cooler, but no. Despite it’s weather, Let It Snow is cozy, warm, and inviting.
Blurb: After the end of a long-term relationship, local weather girl Bea Armstrong has been avoiding her family, and their inevitable ‘I-told-you-sos.’ But with Christmas fast approaching, she is finally on her way home to Charis House, the school in Sherwood Forest that her mum and dad run in their old family home. And to top it all off, the insufferable Henry Fairfax – who her parents have always wanted her to marry – has also been invited.
Relief comes in the shape of a last minute interview for her dream job. There are just a few minor problems… The interview is in Scotland, Bea has no car, and the snow is falling already. The only solution is for Henry to drive her – could this Christmas get any worse…
But during an unforgettable two day interview, a stay in a log cabin and a nightmare journey through the snow, Henry turns out to be nothing like she thought. And when Bea’s first love and recent ex shows up, Bea has a difficult choice to make…
With quirky characters and situations, Beth Moran’s Let It Snow may just be the Christmas novel you’ve been looking for if you’re tired of Hallmark-style schmaltz and predictability.
Weather girl Bea Armstrong broke up from her childhood sweetheart six months ago after being together for twelve years. To say that the break up has undone her personal and work life would be an understatement but she soldiers on and is looking forward to being with her family for the holidays. Little does she know that her long-time nemesis, Henry Fairfax, will be there or that he might just be someone she can count on when she needs someone in her corner. With a more than eccentric job interview, a quest to save Charis House, and the upset that arrives with Bea’s former boyfriend, Let It Snow provides laughs, warmth, and good-heartedness as Bea begins to better understand her world and her place in it.
Beth Moran writes with an easy style that draws the reader in and creates an unforgettable setting. Bea’s family and friends are unique and are uniquely portrayed. The romance between Bea and Henry is understated and, yet, perfect.
Let It Snow is a book with heart and laughs and embodies the joy of the season.
