Book 4: If Kisses Were Snowflakes

Nice with a touch of naughty… a new Christmas Wishes romance by Serenity Woods.

When Angel Matthews books a vacation on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in Northumbria at Christmas, she plans to follow in the footsteps of St. Cuthbert and spend some time alone, to recover from the trauma of the past year, and to plan her future.

She doesn’t plan on being stranded by the tide, and having to hide in one of the refuge boxes for five hours in the wintry weather.

She doesn’t expect to be rescued by a Ragnar-Lothbrok lookalike who seems to think she’s his shield maiden.

And she certainly doesn’t anticipate the way he not only thaws her frozen heart, but sends her thermostat soaring.

A relationship with the wounded but wonderful Halvar Carlson is definitely going to put her on Santa’s naughty list. But how can she possibly say no to such a sexy Viking?

I do enjoy Serenity Woods work, and this was no exception. Two people who were broken in their own way discover each other during the Christmas season. Both attempting to heal and never anticipated finding someone to help them down that road. You could feel some of the pain and anguish both Hal and Angel felt from their life experiences. Both Angel and Hal found an inner strength with each other. You could also feel the love and joy they found in his kids. There was instalove in this story, but it never felt like it. It just felt right. I also loved how they both handled his ex-wife. This was a sweet, sexy holiday romance story. Maybe Santa was really looking out for them.

When Angel was eight years old, her father died suddenly. She went into severe depression. No medication or help because her mother thought it was a phase she was going through and would soon be better. Several times in her life, she had spiraled into deep depression. Now, she is determined to be in control of her life. She goes alone to spend Christmas on Holy Island, a magical place. The island is cut off from the mainland at certain times of the day. She miscalculates the tide and is stranded. Hal is able to rescue her. He is also going through a rough time in his life. Neither is looking for love or even a relationship, but love can find you even when you aren't looking. This story gripped me in the very beginning and kept me enthralled. It's well written, has great character development, and is intriguing. I highly recommend you read Hal and Angel's story. A direct quote: If kisses were snowflakes, I would send you a blizzard.

I haven’t read the previous 3 books in this series but that’s about to change after reading and falling in love with Angel and Hal I need to get everyone else’s story. This is a different setting to other books I have read by Serenity Woods, well it’s actually a different Country, If Kisses Were Snowflakes is set on Holy Island of Lindisfarm near the Scottish border and once again this author made me feel like I was going home to visit friends and relatives not just reading a book. Angel and Hal both have issues with relationships in their past, he is getting over a messy divorce, trying to juggle a job and still spend time with his two adorable children, she is trying to get over years of unsuccessful fertility treatments which caused her boyfriend to dump her on Christmas Eve a year ago. Will the spirit of Christmas help them both to heal whilst finding true love. This book is a beautifully written love story that I couldn’t put down and what can I say about the adorable children who had some fantastic one liners “he’s a nob” Springs to mind and still makes me smile thinking about it. If you love Christmas and love stories you need to read If Kisses Were Snowflakes I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

Heartwarming and spicy Christmas romance 5 stars The book started off a little slow and slightly irritating, but it turned into a great romance. It took me until Chapter 6 (or 15% into the book) before I connected with the characters and began to really enjoy the book. Then, I adored this couple, especially Hal. He is so compassionate and romantic. One time he texted to Angel, "If kisses were snowflakes, I would send you a blizzard." How romantic is that?! Hal is also such a great father to his adorable son and daughter. I also slowly began to like and admire Angel. At first, both Hal and Angel were separately having a really hard time in their lives. Hal was having an awful day at work and he was delayed getting home to his two kids at his cottage on Holy Island. Hal has been separated from his cheating wife for two years, and the divorce decree is about a week away. Angel is in the midst of a long car trip across England to Holy Island, which is just off the coast of northeast England. Angel has battled depression nearly her entire life, but she has turned a corner and is feeling better. The Holy Island is a real place that is connected to the mainland by a road that is inaccessible twice a day during high tide. Angel made the incredibly bad decision to drive on the road when she knew it was about to be flooded. Of course, her car got flooded, and she had to climb onto a rescue platform. (It took me a while before I could forgive her for stupidly thinking that she could beat the mighty forces of nature.) Thankfully, Hal found her very cold self five hours later when the road was passable again. Angel and Hal tentatively started a fling that quickly turned into something special. FYI, there is some steamy sex and a bunch of suggestive flirting. I love how the writer imbues each love scene with such intimacy and respect. This book will melt your heart and get you hot under the collar. I also love the quaint and exotic location on the island. I recommend this to contemporary romance fans who like steaminess and a bit of real-life grittiness on the way to wonderful romance. I received a free advanced reading copy from the author, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

There were many sweet moments in If Kisses Were Snowflakes. After a rough few years, Angel decides to take life in her own hands and have a self-reflecting Christmas alone on Holy Island. Making a foolish choice due to fatigue, she ends up stranded in crappy weather, until Hal discovers and rescues her during his own crossing home hours later. I really liked Hal and Angel as a couple, even in the early blossoming stages. They seemed to understand the hard times the other was going through and offer support. Their shared interests helped them both feel a kindness and personal connection neither had felt in quite some time. Doing my best to not spoil the ending, I wholeheartedly approve of how Angel chose to handle her big conflict at the end. I really had no idea what she might do when given the ultimatum and was quite pleased with her decision. Similarly, with Hal, I thought it was about time he took a stand on his big problem. That being said, there were a few things that really stuck in my craw. I was annoyed about how often Angel brought up she was a few years older than Hal and how hard it would be for others to accept it. When I first found out Angel's age, I was surprised, since her behavior would lead me to believe she was almost a decade younger. I can understand she's had a rough go of it, but she occasionally seemed so immature I wasn't sure how to feel about her actions. While Hal acted the responsible adult, I was disappointed with his inability to stand up for himself in the beginning. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

If Kisses Were Snowflakes (Christmas Wishes Book 4) is instant attraction that leads to an emotional loving attachment between two characters. This is something that the author writes superbly, never leaving the characters to base their relationship only on the physical aspects. I was expecting the story to take place in New Zealand, but the setting is off the coast of mainland England. Having winter as the backdrop did make the story feel more Christmassy but no matter where the characters are I enjoyed the story. Book four in the series but reads well own its on, so no worries if the first three have not been read. Fast paced story that starts out with a chance meeting between Angel and Hal. There is a bit of Christmas magic as they navigate the personal struggles that they have. It is an uplifting story that deals with some serious issues such as divorce, rejection, work problems and depression. Ms. Woods never shies away from the difficult stuff of life, instead allowing her characters to deal with it as they find a better future. It is a marvelous Christmas romance that can be enjoyed anytime of the year. The publisher/author gave me a complimentary ARC of the book.

Younger man, Older Woman Lovely story set on Holy Island with descriptions that make you feel as it you are there. Many years ago I visited Lindisfarne Castle but didn’t have time to visit the rest of the Island so this was a treat. Angel Matthews is pulling herself out of depression and is determined that she will manage Christmas, on her own, without family and without asking for help. She didn’t however figure being stranded on the causeway, her car swept away, cold, wet and seeking refuge in a hut. When Halvar Carlson, a native of the Island, discovers her when he is crossing the causeway at the next low tide, she is near hypothermia and very much in need of rescue! In the end however they rescue each other. A lovely sexy romance set over the Christmas holiday period and the issue of depression is sensitively handled. Note: strong language. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

If Kisses Were Snowflakes by Serenity Woods Christmas Wishes #4 Stellar story – as expected – this author always delivers thought provoking well-crafted plots with unforgettable characters. There is usually something educational along with sizzling romance and this book threw in Christmas wishes being fulfilled. Here I should probably mention that I could not put this book down and read through till 2:30am – I had to finish it…just in case you were wondering. Angel Matthews has kept a journal for decades and addresses it to a man who is known to be a jolly granter of wishes. Since childhood she has dealt with an issue that was exacerbated on Christmas Eve one year ago. After hitting rock bottom she spent time looking and working on the issue and how she wants to achieve in the future. With this in mind she has decided to spend Christmas alone to ponder process and plan for the positive future she deserves. So, off she heads to Lindisfarne, also known as Holy Island, a tidal island off the northeast coast of England. It is a tiny place with few inhabitants but frequent pilgrims and the road to it is completely covered when the tide is in. (You might enjoy googling – fascinating reading on Wikipedia). Anyway, off she goes and though wanting to depend on nobody but herself finds herself rescued by Halvar Carlson. Hal is the father of two children, lives in Lindisfarne, has a b*tch of an almost ex-wife and a mean-spirited boss that is increasing the difficulties in his life. Well, Hal and Angel are drawn to one another but with the distance between their abodes see that getting together would most likely be little more than a holiday fling. But, what was supposed to be a bit of fun ends up being a healing interlude that may just provide them with the HEA they both so richly deserve. What I Liked: * The story – all of it *Hal’s love for his children and well…him…what a man! *Angel’s openness and willingness to state what she wants and reach out for it *Getting to look over Angel’s shoulder as she writes in her personal journal *The information about Lindisfarne – now on my bucket list *The development of the relationship between Hal and Angel and their willingness to communicate openly and honestly with one another *Hal’s children – Jamie and Brenna *The honesty with which divorce and its impact on all family members was portrayed *Well…let me see…what did I not like? What I didn’t like: *Rebecca – the ex-wife of Hal *Charles – Hal’s boss *…and that is about it…except that on the last page I really wished there were more pages to read… Did I mention I loved this book? Even if I did…it is worth saying again :) Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
