I had read and enjoyed the previous Heartbreaker Bay book by Jill Shalvis, so I was eager to read her novella One Snowy Night.
I’m working on book two of my own series and trying to read more books set in small towns. Even though the Heartbreaker Bay series is set in San Francisco, its close-knit cast of characters make it function like a little town. They all know each other’s secrets and have each other’s backs.
The couple in this one went to high school together, but their paths hadn’t crossed again until Rory came to work for a dog groomer near Max’s office. He’s heading home to Tahoe and. at her boss’ behest, insists she ride with him rather than take multiple buses and trains on Christmas Eve. She’s desperate to keep her promise to go home for the first time in years, but the weather isn’t cooperating.
Like the first book, this one includes a big, lovable dog, breezy writing, and good-at-heart people.
A nice Christmas present.
