The weather forecasters said the snowstorm would miss the eastern seaboard. They were wrong. When Ally Henderson’s flight from Southern California to New York City for Christmas gets diverted to the tiny Midwestern town of Bethlehem, she’s desperate to get back in the air and back to the Big Apple. But with all the airports closed, she’s forced to rely on Midwestern hospitality to wait out the storm. And she soon learns that she has a storm of her own to weather. One that could shatter her life.

Living with a kind stranger is one way to spend a snowed-in Christmas, but when she meets the local diner owner, Jake, sparks fly. Only, Ally’s a big-city girl with big-city dreams, and Jake will always be a Bethlehem boy. 

Ally Henderson is flying to New York where she is to marry her business partner fiancé in just a few days. Unluckily the weather chnages and makes it impossible to fly and the plane has to be redirected elsewhere. She gets stranded in the small town of Bethlehem, Colorado. The people in this small town try to provide accommodations to their new guests. Ally ends up with her fellow passenger Noel, a very pregnant and talkative lady – and staying with Peggy, an older lady that opens her house to them. Peggy’s son Jake Nelson takes the newcomers to his mother’s house. There’s instant chemistry between Ally and Jake, although both know it can’t become anything. For one Ally is to be married and Jake has problems of his own. But maybe… just maybe this unexpected turn of events that fate provided might lead somewhere?

This is a super cute and festive Christmas read. I love the – stranded somewhere – type of books and this was definitely a hit for me!

Ally has been having the worst luck and I totally felt for her! She seems like such a good person! When everything seems not to be able to get worse, it does and I couldn’t help but just want everything good to come to her. I’m not going to spoil anything but it really made it incredibly difficult for her and a lot of fun for me!

Noel is the most talkative and upbeat person I’ve ever had the chance to read about. I love how positive and jolly she is! Although I must say, I’m not sure I would have enjoyed having her as a next seat passenger at first… But she definitely turned out to be awesome!

As for Jake, I really liked him! Like Ally, I totally felt for him and his situation, and loved how much he tried to enjoy his life and move forward even tho it wasn’t easy.

I loved the chemistry between him and Ally super much. I think they are perfect for each other, after all – even tho they seem very different, it might just work out anyway, since opposites attract and all that, right?

This was such a good feeling Christmas story! Loved all the snow and the scenery of the tiny town they were in and loved the romance! It’s slow burning and just super cute! Definitely happy I got to read this during this time of the year even tho, I’m super late to get to it because of that…
