She’s snowed in with the family. The only problem? They’re not her family.
A family gathering
This Christmas the Miller siblings have one goal – to avoid their family’s well-meaning questions. Ross, Alice and Clemmie have secrets that they don’t intend to share, and they are relying on each other to deflect attention.
An uninvited guest
Lucy Clarke is facing a Christmas alone, and the prospect of losing her job – unless she can win a major piece of business from Ross Miller. She’ll deliver her proposal to his family home in the Scottish Highlands and then leave. After all, she wouldn’t want to intrude on the Miller’s perfect family Christmas.
A Christmas to remember
When Lucy appears on the Miller’s snow-covered doorstep, she is mistaken for Ross’s girlfriend. But by the time the confusion is cleared up, a storm has hit and Lucy is stuck. As everyone settles in for a snowed-in Christmas, tensions bubble to the surface and suddenly Lucy finds herself facing a big family fallout with a family that isn’t hers…
A Christmas book from Sarah Morgan has yet to let me down. Every single year I look forward to her latest festive novel and Snowed in For Christmas is one of her best yet.
There’s this special quality to Sarah Morgan’s writing and characters that means you can’t help but feel invested and a part of the story. At every single point of Snowed in For Christmas, I was rooting for the characters and hoping everything would work out. The way she writes seems extremely personal and as if the book is written just for you. Magical is how I would describe it.
I absolutely loved the plot of this. The fake girlfriend trope is always a hit with me and Snowed in For Christmas did it well. What made this one even better was the fact that Lucy and Ross didn’t even know each other before she got mistaken for his girlfriend. Poor Lucy just thought his family was overly nice, and while this is true, it was quite funny to read.
The snowy landscape, as always with a Sarah Morgan festive novel, sounded stunning. I love that this was set in a little village, although you don’t get to see too much of it which is a shame. However, the Miller family home sounded wonderfully cosy and very festive.
I loved all of the characters, Clemmie was by far my favourite. She knew exactly what she wanted and she planned to get it no matter what her family said. I was probably most invested in her storyline.
With that being said I did love all of the family and their dynamic. It was pure chaos at times, but that’s what made them seem like a real family. You always need that older grandparent who can get away with saying what everyone is actually thinking because where would the story be without them? Not moving I say and that’s pretty much what happens here. Everything falls into place thanks to Nanna Jean.
It’s funny how at the beginning the story focuses a lot on Lucy, but over time she becomes more of a secondary character. Well to me she does anyway. Once you meet all three siblings, Clemmie and Alice seem to steal the show. I did like Lucy though, even if she was quite stubborn about staying with the Millers for Christmas.
Snowed in For Christmas is another Christmas hit from Sarah Morgan, my December would not feel complete without one of her books. She has become a staple of the festive season for me now.
