When Eliza Bramble signs up for a Christmas mountain ski adventure with sexy mountain guide Marshal McKenzie, she’s looking to escape the attention of a two-timing charmer and find some inner peace. Instead, a blizzard traps her in a remote mountain hideaway with Marshall and two other families in need of their own Christmas miracles.
Christmas is looking like a write-off, until Marshall suggests they make the best of what they have, and work together. The avid outdoorsman has a special touch with people…and with Eliza in particular. Soon she realizes Marshall isn’t just fixing Christmas—but her broken heart, too.
From Netgalley in exchange for a review, this story runs almost parallel to Carmichael’s The Cowgirl’s Christmas. Eliza has converted her aunt’s house into a B&B, but hears that her two timing ex is planning to stay for Christmas. Suspecting his motives – and not trusting her self around him, she arranges to disappear into the mountains on a holiday trip. Things dont go according to plan however, and all the guests are trapped, with little food or heating until the blizzards can be cleared. Eliza, despite being a guest, is willing to help out in the absence of the other staff, and she gets to spend time with the hunky Marshall.
The story is fast paced, the romance a little light (not even a sexy kiss between the two leads) and I wasnt exactly entranced with the story. It’s an ok addition to Carrigan/Montana series, and an average book to read on a snowy winter’s day, but wasnt in love with it
