Snowball's Christmas

Holiday | Romance Contemporary

SNOWBALL'S CHRISTMAS is a heart warming, adorable read. Even if you are not particularly a cat person you will love little Snowball and her quest to keep her forever home and get the rather dumb humans to fall in love.

The central location for this holiday read is a Victorian B&B called Weber Haus run by Miss Tilly with the help of an amazing cook/baker Emily Diemer. Miss Tilly's nephew, whom she had raised from the age of 10 and is now a famous photographer, arrives for the holidays. Immediately Emily shows her distrust for Lukas. She thinks he is a jet-setter traveling around the world taking pictures while his elderly aunt struggles to keep up with the B&B. She doesn't realize that he calls his aunt all the time and she never let on that things were tough. On Lukas' part, he is completely intrigued by Emily and the adorable puff ball of a kitten - Snowball. It isn't long before he finds that life in a small town can be just as fulfilling, if not more so, than traipsing around the world. If only he can get the girl of his dreams to agree with him. With a little help, he just might manage it.

SNOWBALL'S CHRISTMAS is more than just a mushy sentimental holiday read that you will love - it is a really good look at life, misconceptions and how sometimes best intentions will bite you. Lukas has his heart in the right place but as you read you will see that he starts to go down the wrong path when he tries to talk his aunt into selling the B&B. He believes it is just too much work for her. He also wants to help Emily fulfill her dream of owning her own bakery. She had a false start and no support from her family, even though this has been her heart's desire since she was a kid.

With a number of misdirections and misunderstandings, the poor kitten begins to fear her plans will not work. But, the little fluff ball of a kitten who wants the B&B as her forever home and Tilly, Lukas and Emily as her humans, will have the SNOWBALL'S CHRISTMAS that she deserves.

If you want a sweet romance, with a lot of soul searching, a home that is just that -- home and a little mischievous kitten who adds laughter and more smarts than the humans then SNOWBALL'S CHRISTMAS has got to be in your stocking!

Learn more about Snowball's Christmas


Snowball—an aptly named bundle of feline fluff—is thankful to be spending her first Christmas in the comfort of Weber Haus, the Victorian B&B run by Miss Tilly. Emily Diemer, who cooks for the guests, dotes on Snowball, but she’s not thrilled about another new arrival at the B&B: Miss Tilly’s nephew, Lukas. Which is odd, because Snowball’s animal instincts tell her that Lukas and Emily should definitely be friends.
Everything Emily needs is in this quaint community—including, she hopes, the chance to open her own bakery one day. She doesn’t think much of Lukas for leaving his aging aunt to struggle while he jets around the world taking photographs. But now that he’s here, helping to spruce up the property and getting mixed up in Snowball’s antics, she begins to soften a little. Until she learns what he has planned . . .
Lukas is going to sell Weber Haus so that Miss Tilly can retire. But Snowball is certain that this B&B, and these people, are supposed to be her forever home. Somehow she has to get these stubborn humans to see things through the wisdom of a cat’s eye and a kitten’s loyal, loving heart . . .
