Can you find the Christmas spirit in the wrong place, at the wrong time?

As Riley scores a job on a feature film, she’s eager to prove herself to Damian, the famous director she can’t stop thinking about. When they fly to Queenstown, New Zealand, to film on the snowy mountains in July, she’s ready for any discomfort. What she’s not ready for is a snowstorm that cuts her off from the rest of the crew or an unexpected visitor who seeks shelter in her cabin.

Any other girl would love to cozy up with Jonas, a gorgeous ski instructor carrying bags of party food. Not Riley. She’s desperate to get back to her job, back to Damian. The last thing she’s looking for is a protective Swedish guy telling her what she can and can’t do. But as things start to slip out of her control, Riley is forced to rethink her priorities.

Is she headed down the wrong path? And is it possible she has more in common with the Swedish guy than she thought?

Randomly found this little one on Amazon. Short and sweet Xmas tale. 

Riley scored a job on a feature film with a well-known and genius director! She is eager to prove herself to him and move up the chain and someday direct her own films. They fly to Queenstown, New Zealand to film the final scenes on a snowy mountain. What she's not ready for is a snowstorm that cuts off from the rest of the crew and leaves her stranded with a stranger. Any other girl would count themselves lucky to be stranded with such a gorgeous ski instructor who is carrying bags of party food, but Riley doesn't have time for that. She needs this storm to hurry up so she can join the rest of the film crew. However, things start to slip out of her control so she maybe has to rethink her priorities. 

I really feel like this should've been a longer novel. I would've loved to see them together more. They were adorable together and he was just the dang sweetest. Sure one part made me shake my fist at him, but I loved them together. I really think they needed more time!! Maybe I'm just biased ;) but yesssss I wish this was longer. 

They were adorable though. A very sweet romance. And a pretend Xmas celebration. Super cute and cheesy. 

Gah. I wanted to shake Riley though. How could she be so blind about that dang director???????? Especially after the story Jonas told her!!! Gah. Daft girl. But love/lust is blind for sure. I also really wanted to shake her when she tried to take off in car. Gah again. 

But yes - this was cute and short and sweet. Riley needed a good shaking tho, but they were cute. I really wish this had been longer. The love was too quick for my liking for these two completely different people. I'll give this 3 stars as an overall. 



  1. Random reads that turn out well are fun! Glad you enjoyed this one overall. :)

  2. Oh that's always nice to have stories like that

  3. Short and sweet is my jam right now. I read several Christmas stories back in October but none since.
