Snowbound with Mr. Wrong - Barbara White Daille

Lyssa had agreed to help her sister Amber with the Christmas party again . Lyssa had gained some weight and the Elf costume and it was very tight. Lyssa's habit of snacking habit had shot out of control  at the end of the summer after Lyssa had broke up with Nick six months earlier as Nick was obsessed with his job. Amber’s parties were legendary but her Christmas gathering for the kids of Snowflake Valley topped them all. Then Lyssa realizes Nick is playing Santa again this year the one person she never wanted to see again as he broke her heart. Nick wasn’t over Lyssa either as no one could take her place. Then a blizzard is forecast and everyone hurries down the mountain then there was only Nick, Lyssa, Molly, Tommy, and Brent. Nick tries to drive down the mountain but a tree falls and they can't go anywhere but back to the lodge until that tree was moved. Nick also got hurt. They made it back to lodge and had everything they needed except there was no phone service.

I had mixed feelings about his story.It did hold my attention for the most part. I also chuckled at times while reading this. The plot was good. I just didn’t really care for Nick and wondered why Lyssa had cared so much. It was also annoying how many times Nick referred to his job as a troubleshooter. But the kids definitely added if not stole a lot of the story as far as I am concerned.  Although Lyssa was a good character also and I do know there were good things about Nick. I just didn’t connect with Lyssa and Nick having this great love between them and they definitely needed to communicate better.

Snowbound
Snowbound - Blake Crouch A very well done and thought out thriller from Mr. Crouch. The characters were fleshed out nicely and there was plenty of action and twists to keep this one going at a brisk pace until the very end.

I listened to this one on audio and the narrator, Jeffrey Kafer, really nailed it. I was never once thrown out of the story or confused about events playing out, as sometimes happens to me when I am listening to a read and get slightly distracted. An easy listening voice with spot on cadence and tone. I have listened to some of his work before on “The Holy Terror” by Wayne Allen Sallee, which I loved.

I like Blake Crouch. He knows how to write. He has a real sense of character and pacing that never fails to impress me. Dude is solid. He has really taken off in popularity since his Wayward Pines series and TV show. (Is it still on?) I have read several of his previous works and enjoyed every one of them. I still need to get to his Luther Kite series though, starting with “Desert Places” and I am really looking forward to it. My all- time favorite so far is “Draculas”, which was a mash up off authors including F. Paul Wilson, Jack Kilborn and Jeff Strand. Pure craziness. I dug it.

Major Spoiler (kindof) The palpable tension at the end was very well done. I pretty much thought Will was dead meat out at the woodpile and really enjoyed how the story line came full circle when he checked out the last clue. Well played, Mr. Crouch. Well played.

Overall, an extremely entertaining and satisfying tale. Highly recommended. I would also recommend checking out the audio version because it was excellent.

Snowbound at Christmas
Snowbound at Christmas - Jennifer Ryan,Maisey Yates,Lia Riley Does a person ever get over the one that got away? Maisey Yates, Jennifer Ryan and Lia Riley, show the true meaning of love with their theme of second chances and sacrifices in Snowbound at Christmas. My favorite story by far was Close to Perfect by Jennifer Ryan. It embodies what the season is all about. Miracles, faith and forgiveness. Each
contribution brings magic and hope to tempt readers this holiday or any time of year.


Close to Perfect by Jennifer Ryan - Abigail and Dex had discovered something special. Until spite and lies tore them apart. Can a surprise homecoming and a ten year secret, give them the a chance at something new?


Maisey Yates delivers the perfect winter fantasy. To be trapped in a snowstorm with the man of her dreams starts out awkward but ends of being just the gift Mia and Devlin need to set off sparks in Snowed in at Copper Ridge.


Hot Winter's Night by Lia Riley blends mischief and matchmaking with a whole lot of snow to create a scenario that will heat up any winter night.

Snowbound with Mr. Wrong
Snowbound with Mr. Wrong - Barbara White Daille ARC Review: Snowbound with Mr. Wrong (Snowflake Valley) by Barbara White Daille

Snowbound with Mr. Wrong has all the right ingredients to heat things up. Take two clueless exes, add kids and an unexpected snowstorm for good measure and than wait for the sparks to begin. Things are about to get naughty this holiday season. Ms. Daille brings on the laughs with Nick and Lyssa. Lyssa is adorably frustrating, She has no clue how falling in love works. Nick is equally dense, but a temptation all the same. If the romance doesn't take away the chill, the laugh out loud antics sure will.
