Published by: Kensington
Genres: Contemporary Romance
There’s nothing like a hot kiss on a cold day…Librarian Maureen O’Connell might have predicted she’d find herself crying into the ice cream case at the supermarket after a bad breakup—but she definitely never imagined that a guy hot enough to melt the Rocky Road would flirt with her right there in the freezer aisle. Only Gavin Fraser isn’t a fantasy, he’s a mouth-watering new flavor… When a freak snowstorm strands Maureen at Gavin’s after just one date, it’s a perfect excuse for something a lot steamier than hot chocolate in front of the fire. It’s definitely lust. Can it also be love?
I was drawn to Snowed In first by the cover and had to have it when I realized the main character was a librarian. It turns out Snowed In is a novella in the Southern Comfort series. It was not numbered so I went with 2.5 based on release dates. Snowed In reads like a standalone and had me picking up the first two books. Snow, banter, romance and side characters you will be dying to meet.
Espresso Review of Snowed In
Give me a small-town setting and a hilarious set up and you will have me smiling. In Snowed In, Title introduces us to Maureen O’Connell ogling ice cream at the local supermarket after a bad breakup. She is not dressed to impress so of course a handsome, mouth-watering, Irish God decides to buy ice cream. Gavin Frasier could melt more than her ice cream and I adored their initial encounter. It made me giggle:snort causing those around me to stare. The tale that unfolds delivers humor in the form of banter and secondary characters. Gavin’s elderly next-door neighbor was a hoot. I hope I am having that much fun at her age. A snowstorm traps our couple, which led to some delicious heat. While we could have fallen into the insta-love trap, Title kept it real and I was quite happy with the outcome. Now of course I want to go back and read Kentucky Home and Home Sweet Home.
