To college student, Katie Brandt, ‘Home for the Holidays’ sounds like hell. When her parents separated, their holiday traditions shattered like a dropped ornament. What could be worse than celebrating Christmas with her suddenly single mom and mom’s new boyfriend?
Alex Walker, an engaged 20-year-old, dreads going home for his own reasons. He has a daunting task ahead of him and wishes he could skip the holidays altogether. So when a friend of a friend needs a ride north, Alex finds that having beautiful Katie seated by his side proves to be just the distraction he needs.
A simple ride home for Christmas turns into a nightmare when light snow rages into a full-scale blizzard. Katie and Alex find themselves stranded, and a vacant cabin becomes a haven from the storm.
Under different circumstances, time alone with Alex would be the ultimate Christmas gift, but Katie knows Alex is engaged and she must hide her growing attraction.
However, Alex harbors a secret that just might change this holiday from the worst Christmas ever, to the best.

In Review: My Thoughts
Am I the only one who has noticed that the majority of holiday novellas revolve around the main character going home for the holidays? No matter. I can’t get enough of it. Especially when the writing is great and the characters are awesome. That was definitely the case with Snowed Over. Oh, and bonus: road trip! I simply adore a good road trip story.
Katie was smart, sweet and funny. Alex was gorgeous and swoony. Their connection was immediate and believable. As they spent more time together and more information about each of them came to light, the more convinced I was that they would make a perfect couple. Perhaps something positive could come from this disastrous trip after all.
‘Tis the season for holiday novellas and this is one of my favorites of the year. It was a sweet, charming and clean story with characters I just couldn’t help but love.
