Lexi Anderson is an up-and-coming, Martha Stewart-type TV hostess whose two kids love the Jared Strong adventure novels, which happen to be written by their new neighbour, Kyle Miller.
For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer’s block – until he sees the snowman on his lawn and realises this is the perfect place for his villain to hide the weapon. He digs into the snowman to discover two things: the weapon fits int he body just under the head, and the snowman was supposed to be the back drop for Lexi’s next show.
From this improbable beginning comes friendship. Can there be more for a woman who is afraid to get close again and a man who has shadows from his childhood?
Families join together and hearts are healed as this couple goes walking in a winter wonderland.
This book was really disappointing – mainly because I was enjoying it so much and then I got to the end and everything went weird.
I liked the storyline and the progression and the chemistry, but I didn’t like how it went from 0 to 100 in 6 days!! SIX DAYS!
Lexi mellowed well and Kyle came around to everything a tiny bit fast but it was all well written. I liked the development and the building friendships and the pace seemed pretty perfectly set out.
It was even a funny book! The snowman was a great meet-cute.
Justthat poxy ending!
I’m going to pretend there was a “1 year later” sub heading and then I will be happier.
