Melissa's Review:

One Snowy Night is book 2.5 in the Heartbreaker Bay series. This is a novella and quite a quick read but was a great way to see a secondary character's story. I will say you need to have read these books in order, or at least book two before this one to understand who both of the characters are since there isn't really a background in the novella.

Rory Andrews is needing to head home to see her family for the holidays and winds up getting offered a ride with Max Stranton and his dog Carl. They have mutual friends and even know one another from high school but are nothing more than acquaintances, much to Max's dismay. I could tell in book two of the Heartbreaker Bay series that Max wanted to date Rory, but she is not exactly the most trusting when it comes to men so nothing really became of it. The duo hits the road only to have their trip delayed a bit by bad weather but during that time a sweet romance blossoms.

One Snowy Night was a delightful novella with engaging characters. I enjoyed Rory's character in book two so I was really happy to see she got her own novella. Max is a no nonsense have to look after those I care for type man and I just loved them together. I wish the story was longer but pacing-wise it didn't feel rushed. If you've read the previous books in this series I think you'd love this novella. I'd recommend this series to anyone who loves a heartwarming Contemporary Romance.

  4. I was really curious about Rory's character and was kind of hoping she would get a full book as I actually liked her, but glad it was sweet nevertheless!

  7. Great review! I haven't read any in the Heartbreaker series, but they seem like nice quick reads for wait time in airports or bus stations. :-)
