Summary

PG-RATED FUN

Lexi Anderson is an up-and-coming, Martha Stewart-type TV hostess whose two kids love the Jared Strong adventure novels, which happen to be written by their new neighbor, Kyle Miller.

For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer's block - until he sees the snowman on his lawn and realizes it's the perfect solution to his plot problem. He digs in and discovers two things: one, his villain's weapon will fit inside a snowman's body, and two, this particular snowman was supposed to be the backdrop for Lexi's next show.

From this improbable beginning comes friendship, but can there be a happy ending for a woman who is afraid to get close again and a man who has shadows from his childhood?

Families join together and hearts are healed as this couple goes walking in a winter wonderland.

It's a novella of about 100 pages. The paperback version will be available soon.

Sweet story of love and snowmen

This book was nicely written and narrated. It was a romance that had children and family as the main theme.

Awful book and worst narration..



This is definitely not my kind of author. Too much God and religion and talk of miracles and too many men crying. The grief they felt over the mother/wife dying, 22 years ago, was somewhat ridiculous. Why the heck would you want to carry that around with you for all those years? The ONLY reason I finished it was because it was only 96 pages long.

I liked Kyle but his grief was so bad you got the impression he was going to pass out from it while they were shopping for Christmas ornaments. He was 9 when his mother died and the family hadn’t celebrated Christmas in all that time, since she died on Christmas Eve. Really? And the tears and sadness when Lexie suggested they talk about “mama” was unbelievable. This author was trying for a heartfelt story but all she got was one totally crazy.

It was silly with Lexie lying to her kids and making them miss Kyle’s book signing at the beginning and when she kept calling Kyle a “snowman murderer.” And Lexie was a little too perfect for me. Couldn't she have, at least, one flaw, other than making bad fudge? She was the new Martha Stewart, with her own TV show and she did everything perfect (except the fudge.)

There was one kiss at the end of the story. There was no swearing and all any of the adults drank was eggnog and hot cocoa. It was so rated-G it was nearly disgusting.

As to the narration: Anne Johnstonbrown had the men sounding like women but the hero’s voice was the worst, and she read without emotion. I would never recommend this narrator.

A Cute Quick Romance

Any additional comments?

A cute little story -- very quick read. If you looking for something positive after finishing something dark this would make a great little romantic break

Sweet story

Not too overdone, sprinkled with wry humor. I especially enjoyed the narrator’ voice. I would recommend for light, listening.

Too cute to end

If you just want a cute romantic book against the backdrop of christmas, this is the book you want. The length is just about the right, i insisted listening until late on a work week cause its just too cute to let go.

A fun read

I read this a long time ago, and I jumped at the chance to listen to the audio book. The narrator did a great job.

Short & sweet

Would you listen to Bah, Humbug! again? Why?

Maybe around the holidays again someday. But it was a sweet story and quick read.
