This is a fun, flirty and heartfelt read! Holly and Sam are two lonely souls snowed in together at the bookstore where they work, a few days before Christmas. They have been flirting back and forth for months and now being snowed in alone with nothing but each other for company should get very interesting. I mean, who wouldn’t want to get snowed in with a hunky six-pack-abs-having Adonis? I love how Holly and Sam have similar hurts and that they both find the courage to confide in each other. For the first time in years the two are not alone at Christmas. They had great chemistry and I loved that their night together was not just about the physical. It was the start of something special. LET IT SNOW is a short and sweet read that will keep you entertained and warm your heart. I’d definitely recommend you squeeze it in to your busy holiday schedule! ***I voluntarily read a Net Galley ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Holly and Sam work at a bookstore, and on Dec 23rd, their boss’s ‘open to midnight!’ pre-Christmas shopping hours means someone has to work late. Neither has any other imminent holiday plans, so they agree to stay and hold down the fort. As the snow piles up outside, it soon becomes clear that they won’t be getting out at midnight after all, the roads being already closed. Resigned to spending the night together, imbibing in a few shots of the boss’s hidden vodka bottle leads to a loosening of tongues and the admission from both of them that they’ve always found each other attractive. When the power goes out, cocooned in their own private world, they share more than a few secrets with each other. This emotional connection leads right into a physical one. In the cold light of morning, will the fragile bond they’ve made be enough to create something more permanent? Novellas have the tricky task of trying to provide enough details in a short span of pages to forge a connection to the reader and make the characters own interactions believable. Since Holly and Sam aren't strangers to begin with, having worked together for a while, it makes sense that they'd be willing to open up to each other. However it's one thing to flirt with a friendly co-worker and quite another to go further, no matter the circumstances. In this case, what Holly and Sam have in common, besides being young (both in their early twenties), is their fractious relationships with their respective parents. For Sam, fallout with his father over his choice of education has led to him abandoning college and working as an assistant manager at the bookstore with no clear grasp on what kind of career he really wants to pursue. His choices and lack of communicating his feelings with his family have led to his estrangement, something he feels keenly with Christmas closing in. But Holly has definitely had it worse. Growing up with an abusive alcoholic father and a weak mother meant she sometimes bore the brunt of his rages, until at the tender age of seventeen she left home, bitter over the fact that her mother chose her father over her. Her upbringing has led to a distinct emotional wall that prevents her from getting to close to anyone and her dating life is few and far between. What Sam therefore gives her is two fold – a chance to tell her story to someone who actually seems to care, and the return of trust in sharing his own story. Holly can only wish she had a family like Sam's who care so much about his future that they argue over it, versus her own parents who never cared at all. It gives Sam second thoughts when he sees his family life from her perspective. Once they've shared these painful secrets, their attraction spills over into a tender and very sexy love scene where Sam really does show Holly with his actions what he tells her with his words – that she is beautiful and worth caring about. Of course, come morning, the worst of the blizzard is over but it doesn't change what happened between them. It's up to Holly and Sam to decide whether they'll chalk it up to a night of unusual circumstances or see it for what it could be – a chance to forge some new Christmas memories. There is a delightful happy ending, and an epilogue that wraps everything up and leaves a warm feeling behind. Let is Snow is quite a lovely story and I'm glad I picked it up.

i'm a sucker for a holiday novella, as i believe has been established by prior posts. in let it snow we have the stranded by blizzard holiday trope and the good news is that it's not two people who have never met. sam and holly have been flirting on the job for a while, so when their boss leaves them to close the small bookshop at midnight the night before christmas eve, being trapped in the store by a blizzard gives them an opportunity to explore all that tension simmering between them. holly is a bit of a geek and she's got a lot of baggage that makes her feel unworthy of most things. so she doesn't trust the attraction that sam feels as something real. not until he bares his own insecurities. the amount of sharing, the quick pace of the unburdening might not have worked had the characters actually been strangers, so i'm glad the author avoided that particular trope. because here we get an unexpectedly emotional and deep story. one that works in spite of the short format. holly and sam clearly have a ton of chemistry and they take advantage of being all alone in the bookstore. this is a short but sweet holiday read. a great thing to pick up if you need a bit of brightening leading up to the holidays. also the sneak peak to grey's next full length novel, nine kinds of naughty, is so good, i'm sad that it's not releasing until february 2017. **let it snow will publish on november 1, 2016. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/ forever (grand central publishing) in exchange for my honest review.

I've only read one other thing by Jeanette, but I know a lot of people who love her words. This was the type of fun, fluffy thing I was expecting from her other book. I loved Holly and Sam. I loved their banter and chemistry and yes, even the slight bit of angst. I throughly enjoyed their story. My main complaint is that it was too short. I could easy devour a full length book about these two. Overall, a cute and quick read that is perfect for the holiday. **Huge thanks to Forever for providing the arc free of charge**
