Snowed In by Catherine Walsh ~ a Review

by MK French

Megan left Isaac four years ago, and everyone in her village had loved him. He's engaged to someone else now, and she's been dumped again. She bumps into Christian, who is tired of his family feeling sad on his behalf for being single. The two draw up a fake dating contract to get through the holidays with their family. But with their families and Christmas magic in the mix, what if they want to break the contract?

The setup with Megan and Christian makes you warm to them quickly. Megan is still reeling from being a runaway bride and hasn't returned home because too many others in the village cut ties with her. Christian is still single in a family that's almost all paired off and feels like his family feels sorry for him. It's his idea to fake date for their families' sake, but the fake dating involves a lot of very real dates, text messages, and appearances to build up a "relationship" before the fateful Christmas holiday. Of course, they get along great together and it goes amazingly well despite their (mostly Megan's) misgivings and people in the village who still haven't forgiven Megan's actions.

We know that Megan and Christian will turn the fake relationship into a real one, but it's been good to see how it happens. Megan realizes that she does deserve a true relationship with shared experiences, and Christian gets to feel like he doesn't have to put up a front with girlfriends. On top of it all, the reason she ran away from marrying Isaac is revealed, and their mutual friends all learn it and no longer blame her as bad as they had before. It's the best possible outcome for them both, and it was a fun road to get there.
