Two gorgeous stories about the most romantic time of the year…

The holidays don’t have to be fraught with tension, as lifelong friends Lily Cavanaugh and Cameron Greene discover in Mistletoe Between Friends when they cook up a scheme to fool their family and friends.

The Snowflake Inn shows rivals Grace Brodie and Riley Walsh that Christmas is a time when dreams come true—even if you’ve given up on those dreams long ago.

Favorite Quotes:

 

Mistletoe Between Friends

 

Seriously, the woman needed to come with a manual because he couldn’t keep up with her.

 

The Snowflake Inn

 

She was sure he had an actual name, but she hadn’t had an opportunity to find out. When she had first noticed him around town a couple of days ago, she had named him Cute Serious Guy. The next day he had become Cute Brooding Guy, but today, he was looking pretty fierce so she went with Cute Angry Guy.

 

He was a U.S. Marine, damn it. He had faced the enemy in combat. He’d killed when necessary and walked into dangerous situations where he had no idea who he’d be facing more times than he cared to remember. And yet the thought of facing his mother was scarier.

 

My Review:

 

Sneaky plans were brewing in several corners during the seasonal friends to lovers novella Mistletoe Between Friends. Parental pressures to date led to a couple of life-long friends staging a fake romance during the holidays as a reprieve from blind dates and fix-ups. He was a serious scientist that gave every move considerable thought, and she was a flighty, impulse, flibberty-gibbet who never stuck with any job, hobby, or trend. It was quick, sweet, and sexy holiday read.

The Snowflake Inn features a Bed and Breakfast that was a bone of contention and cause for family drama and resentment for an angry wounded Marine returning home. He wanted rid of the family business, although his mother and her new chef did not seem to share his opinion or appreciate his thoughts.   The story was a quick, angsty, and sexy read that was also quite moving and heart-squeezing at times.

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase relsamantha Chaseeased her debut novel, Jordan’s Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40’s to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.

When she’s not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
