Book Description:
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.

I have been wanting to try a book by Stanton for, well, forever and for whatever reason I just haven’t' been able to squeeze one in. When I saw Snowed Over and saw that it was a novella, I knew that I finally had to try one of her books. I am so very glad I did because this was a really sweet love story and perfect for the holidays.

It had enough depth to feel like I got to know Katie and Alex and just enough spicy moments to satiate the romance lover in me. This truly was a really fun quick read that had everything I love in it and more.

I can say this with absolutely conviction that this will not be my last Stanton book.
