She’s snowed in with the family. The only problem? They’re not her family.
A family gathering
This Christmas the Miller siblings have one goal – to avoid their family’s well-meaning questions. Ross, Alice and Clemmie have secrets that they don’t intend to share, and they are relying on each other to deflect attention.
An uninvited guest
Lucy Clarke is facing a Christmas alone, and the prospect of losing her job – unless she can win a major piece of business from Ross Miller. She’ll deliver her proposal to his family home in the Scottish Highlands and then leave. After all, she wouldn’t want to intrude on the Miller’s perfect family Christmas.
A Christmas to remember
When Lucy appears on the Miller’s snow-covered doorstep, she is mistaken for Ross’s girlfriend. But by the time the confusion is cleared up, a storm has hit and Lucy is stuck. As everyone settles in for a snowed-in Christmas, tensions bubble to the surface and suddenly Lucy finds herself facing a big family fallout with a family that isn’t hers…
A huge thank you to HQ Stories and Sarah Morgan for the opportunity to join the blog tour for Snowed in for Christmas and for a copy of the beautiful paperback book. Regular readers of my reviews will know that I love reading Sarah’s books and you can read my last review here : https://mentoringmumof2bookreviews.home.blog/2022/05/29/beach-house-summer-by-sarah-morgan
Snowed in for Christmas starts by introducing us to Lucy and then the Miller family. Lucy is due to spend Christmas alone whilst the three Miller siblings are all wary about being back home in the Scottish Highlands for Christmas, wondering what comments their parents and grandmother will make.
Lucy is determined to help her boss keep his PR firm from closing and decides to hand deliver a business proposal to Ross Miller, after working on a promotion for another client nearby. As the title of the book suggests she then finds herself snowed in – unable to return to London.
I loved curling up with this book. Lucy finds herself stuck with a family who are dealing with some challenges and who appear to have lost the ability to talk to each other about the things that really matter to them. Can some time together looking after Lucy help them see what is important? Can Lucy persuade Ross that her business proposal will help his company and save her job?
My favourite character is Nanna Jean, who appears to be able to get away with making comments that no one else would dare to say due to her age. Thank you Sarah Morgan for writing this thought provoking and uplifting festive read. I’m happy to recommend Snowed in for Christmas which should be enjoyed with a glass of mulled wine and a box of chocolates. The book will be published on Thursday 27 October.
