Snowed Over is a story about a college freshman, Katie, who is headed to visit her mother and her mother’s non-boyfriend for the holidays. She catches a ride with fellow student, Alex, whom she’s never actually met. During their trip, the weather refuses to cooperate and after a near death experience, they hunker down in small, empty cabin in the middle of nowhere.
After confiding in each other about the reasons that they don’t even really want to reach their initial destinations, the two become fast friends, and maybe more.
This story was really cute and I loved the way it developed. What could be more romantic than being trapped with an attractive stranger for a couple of days? With no electricity, just a crackling fire and a small sofa bed? Alex is a great guy and he quickly realizes that Katie is the exact opposite of the girl who has been in his life up until this point. I felt bad for both Katie and Alex, her because her family has recently broken up, and him because he has been taken advantage of by someone who should have been putting his best interest first.
Considering this was a novella, I found the character development and storyline extremely engaging, and would love to read more about the characters even though the story was wrapped up nicely! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quick, sweet holiday read!
