Jill Shalvis is always on my must read list, like a good
friend on speed dial. ONE SNOWY NIGHT is a novella part of
Bay series. ONE SNOWY NIGHT is a journey
home for Christmas and is a total delight. Pull up a comfy
chair, hot cup of cocoa, tea or coffee, and experience
Jill Shalvis in her newest tale of romance and friendship.
Rory Andrews is returning home with mixed feelings. Having
left home when seventeen Rory isn't too sure what her
reception will be and candidly she is plain reluctant to
find out. Life was difficult for Rory and she got to a
point where her best idea was to flee. She wound up in San
Francisco working with animals, she much preferred four
Max Stratton was cornered to do a favor and be Rory's ride
home since they were heading to the same town. Max and
Rory sort of knew each other, went to same school. Max
was totally out of Rory's league, football hero with a
college scholarship. Rory was a smart but shy girl. But
unfortunately their lives wound up quite different than
anyone would have guessed.
The ride home was doomed to be an uncomfortable experience
for both Rory and Max. Max still held on to the anger he
felt toward Rory because of her last act before leaving
town. Rory just knows that for some reason Max really
doesn't like her so then why should he be willing to help
her get home. Add to all that the problems with driving
hours through a snow storm, car troubles and a massive dog
sharing the space well it can only end badly. Or can it?
Time can be your enemy or your friend. In the case of Max
and Rory all they have is time. Time to talk or not. Time
to examine their mutual attraction. Time to decide if they
can put their history behind them and look ahead. No
better time to do that then during the holiday season.
ONE SNOWY NIGHT is book three in Jill Shalvis' wonderful
that is chock full of engaging dialog, endearing
characters and cuddly pets. I can't wait for number four.
New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis
returns to Heartbreaker Bay with a fun and festive holiday
It’s Christmas Eve and Rory Andrews is desperate to get home
to the family she hasn’t seen in years. Problem is, her only
ride to Lake Tahoe comes in the form of the annoyingly
handsome Max Stranton, and his big, goofy, lovable dog Carl.
Hours stuck in a truck with the dead sexy Max sounds like a
fate worse than death (not), but Rory’s out of options.
She’s had a crush on Max since high school and she
knows he’s attracted to her, too. But they have
history… and Max is the only one who knows why it went south.
They’ve done a good job of ignoring their chemistry so far,
but a long road trip in a massive blizzard might be just
what they need to face their past… and one steamy, snowy
night is all it takes to bring Max and Rory together at last.
