Summary

Lady Isabella Porter and Lord Gerard Malden have known each other since they were children. Isabella thinks of Gerard as someone who teased her unmercifully and made her feel inadequate as a young girl. But Gerard has loved Isabella for many years.

A sudden, fierce snowstorm and misplaced notes informing both of a change of plan mean Isabella and Gerard are forced to spend the Christmas holidays together in very unusual circumstances. 

Gerard realizes he must use the time he's been given with Isabella to change the opinions she formed as a girl so she may look upon him with favor and, if he is fortunate, lasting affection.

A lovely recency novel

I totally enjoyed Isabel and Gerard's story. He teased her mercilessly as a child but his sister was a great matchmaker when she believed they were great for each other.

Festive Regency Listen!

Snug in a Snowstorm is a delightful short festive listen. I love a friends to lover's story, and add in the regency time period, and its a winner. Cynthia Moore did a great job with the vivid imagery in this sweet book. Megan Green fit the narration perfectly. She added the right emotions to this listen. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Second Chance Holiday Themed Listen

This is a story that puts you right in the mood for the holidays. The author does a good job establishing the background relationships between the characters and building on them. Just loved the use of the tradition of "kissing under the mistletoe". Its a short, heartwarming listen that is perfect to listen to during the holidays.

The narrator did an excellent job in this performance. She was consistent and differentiated between character voices well. I also think her voice and accent took this story to the next level and added an element of authenticity of the intended setting and time period.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Nice short, sweet, festive listen!

I LOVE regency stories so couldn't wait to lap this one up! Its short and sweet and just how I like my historical romance. Isabella and Gerard get stuck at a house over Christmas due to inclement weather (with some staff and a chaperone obviously) they have known each other since they were young children and they have a history of Gerard teasing Isabella. I won't spoil it by giving away the rest of the story but it is basically about Gerard trying to show Isabella how much he loves her and her coming to terms with her real feelings. The story is beautifully set in the period with lovely little festive touches that make it feel like you could be there watching them. It's like a cosy blanket romance so if that's what you like you won't be disappointed. The narration was good, with appropriate voices for the characters and good pacing, it definitely added something extra to just reading the book yourself, letting you just sit back and enjoy the story! I would def read more books by this author and narrator.

A nice, gentle romance for Christmas listening.

This was a nice little story to listen to over the Christmas period.
I love it when friends fall in love and what better way to move things along than to be left alone together in a big old house during a Christmas snowstorm.
Short and sweet.

I voluntarily reviewed an advance reading audio copy.

Wintery, Regency Romance

This was a sweet, Regency era romance perfect for the Christmas season or for anyone like me who likes Christmas all year. I feel I could have done with a little more romance.

I liked Megan Green's distinct voices, as usual. I feel she could have had a bit more emotion in parts, compared to other work I have listened to by her. I listened to this though because I enjoy Megan Green so much.

Generic Regency Romance

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own.

This a quick clean regency romance. I liked that all of the characters are caught up together due to a misunderstanding and a snowstorm. However, the characters are very generic and not explored very much. A lot of time is spent on the meals being cooked.

The narrator was not my favorite - she speaks very slowly and has a weirdly deep voice.

Cute

This was a cute quick clean regency. A charming story of misunderstandings and growth. I love the snowstorm trapped trope. Enjoyed the rhythm.

Fun, short story

This was a fun book to listen to. Not too long, and the narrator is fabulous. I did wish there would be more time spent on the actual romance part of the story than the cooking of meals.

(3.5 stars) - a cozy Christmas Regency tale

Occasionally anachronistic, and Isabella is a bit of a marysue, but it's a sweet story of how childhood frenemy Gerard tries to win over Isabella - and succeeds with a little help from Mother Nature!

*Clean romance level: sweet kisses

[The narrator's voice for the different characters is well done. There's a sing-song quality to her voice that is different but not unpleasant - it just took a little getting used to]

a sweet short Christmas story

This story is also in book form. The narrator did a great job with the story. She brought the story to life for me. It was a sweet short Christmas story. Lady Isabella and Lord Gerard have known each other since childhood. They both are going to his family home for Christmas. Once there a snowstorm happens that they can't leave.

I received a complimentary copy from the author. This is my honest unbiased opinion.

Snug in a Snowstorm

Cute story. i didn’t realize it was a novella, so it’s a short fun Christmas story. However I would have liked more substance and deeper characters. I didn’t care for the narrator, but that is just a personal preference.
