One Snowy Night by Jill Shalvis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This Christmas novella had all the potential in the world, good characters with a back story and depth, a previous connection and chemistry that was compelling. I was really into this story and then bam, it finished with a bang and not only that, the story accelerated in a way that it lost its tangibility. I was ready to give this story a high rating until the abrupt finish. Nevertheless, this was well written and crafted, reminding me to read more Jill Shalvis than I already have.
Max was a growly, kind of grumpy, hot guy. I could ascertain his interest in
Rory (female protagonist) immediately. Rory sure was a bit slower on the uptake. Rory was a bit of a contrast, self assured in some ways and lacking in self belief in others; but I liked her, she was flawed and real. These two were supported in the narrative by Carl, a huge, hulking dog that made me laugh.
I'd recommend this for a quick, Christmas mood read but be aware it finishes just over half way, with other book excerpts making up the remaining percentage.
