SynopsisThanks to a transatlantic house swap, California girl Ashley Turner is finally going to fulfill her lifelong dream of a proper English Christmas. Her holiday plans did not include a sexy stranger climbing into her borrowed bed in the middle of the night. But in the light of day, Ashley can't help but wonder if Santa has delivered early...
Game designer Oliver Stansfeld can't wait to leave dreary London—and all its difficult holiday memories—for sunny San Diego. But a freak ice storm and a grounded plane have forced him back to his already-occupied flat. To make up for the mix-up, the least he can do is show his pretty houseguest where to get the perfect Christmas tree before he leaves.
The more time they spend together, the more their attraction grows, and soon Ashley is tempting Oliver to give in to the spirit of the season and snuggle up for the rest of the winter. As the ice melts and flights start taking off again, he must choose between giving in to the past or risking his heart on a chance at love.
My ThoughtsAs soon as I started to read this all I could think about was the movie The Holiday. If you saw the movie this is basically the same. The only difference is instead of exchanging houses as planned Oliver gets stuck by a snow storm before he can leave.
Given the similarities I still enjoyed this cute tale of a holiday romance. Though there is nothing new here it’s still great getting to know these two individuals and knowing in the end they will eventually end up together. This is just another cute quick read you might enjoy.
