Have yourself a scrumptious, small-town Christmas with this special Cupcake Lovers holiday novella, Love on a Winter's Night!

Growing up in Sugar Creek, Maya Templeton and Zachary Cole were best friends. After high school, each went out into the world in search of adventure. Maya moved to Florida to explore her passion for baking and pastry-making, eventually establishing her own business: Cupcakes & Dreamscapes. Zach joined the military and became a Marine Scout Sniper. Now, after years apart, they’re both going home for the holidays. They don’t seem to have much in common anymore. In fact, Zach seems to have the hots for Maya’s business partner. But when the two get stranded together during a blizzard, they are forced to reexamine their connection. Are Maya and Zach better off “just friends”—just as they were when they were young? Or could it be that true love was there all along?

My Thoughts
Some Kind of Wonderful is a very cute and short holiday tale. It’s about two old friends who grew up together and reconnect over the holidays. Maya has set up her friend with Zach but a clueless Zach doesn’t realize the girl who he fell for over letters and IM’s is really Maya instead. When Maya goes back home for the holidays there is no denying that Maya and Zach definitely have a strong and unbreakable connection.

While they try and deny their feelings towards each other they are forced to spend the night together while out delivering meals to the needy. During this time they can’t help but give into their attraction.  Is this the real thing? Or are they just two old lonely flames rekindling what they once had?  

This novella is a very good and fast paced holiday read. It keeps you interested and with just the right amount of romance involved. Simple and sweet with Christmas as a wonderful backdrop, you can’t go wrong in choosing this. Though this is part of a series this is a novella and can be read as a stand alone. It's very complete and I had no problems in reading this, never had read the previous books.
