Margaret Snow doesn’t believe in fairy tales, but as a devoted mother she’s determined to give her five-year-old daughter a Christmas filled with heart-warming memories.
The once successful LA swimsuit model returns to her small upstate New York town to buy back the foreclosed trailer she once called home. Her menagerie of rescue animals travel with her.
She doesn’t expect to see her former high school sweetheart, the athletic, ever-popular, and decisive Fernando Brandt.
Sparks fly when she realizes that the teenage hockey star is now a successful Realtor who is also interested in her dilapidated trailer for reasons of his own.
But can she resist the handsome, charismatic Prince Charming a second time?
And can she surrender her insecurities and accept the true gift of Christmas, finally feeling worthy of unconditional love?
My Book Review:
A Snowy White Christmas is a lighthearted holiday romance novella about life choices and second chances.
Author Josie Riviera weaves a sweet holiday romance tale set in the Upstate New York town of Owanda that follows the unexpected reuniting of two high school sweethearts, Margaret Snow and Fernando Brandt. Different life goals and an unexpected secret pregnancy separated this high school couple six years ago, but when Margaret comes back home to Owanda with her five year old daughter Amelie, Margaret and Fernando have a second chance at a fairy tale love if they can let go of past hurts, reveal hidden secrets, discover what is most important in life, and let the magic of the Christmas season into their hearts.
A Snowy White Christmas is a delightful little holiday romance novella that you can read in an afternoon. The reader is easily drawn into Margaret and Fernando's story as their journey of rediscovering the love for each other still burns bright after six years apart, even when there are fears, insecurities, and secrets that they need to overcome. Their love story unfolds during the Christmas holiday season with an intertwining of the present with flashbacks to the past, a sweet little five year old girl, and a couple of lovable rescue pets. Broken hearts and past mistakes in life choices can be forgiven with a second chance at love through the spirit and magic of the Christmas season in this heartwarming holiday romance story.
