Synopsis from Goodreads:

When Eliza Bramble signs up for a Christmas mountain ski adventure with sexy mountain guide Marshal McKenzie, she’s looking to escape the attention of a two-timing charmer and find some inner peace. Instead, a blizzard traps her in a remote mountain hideaway with Marshall and two other families in need of their own Christmas miracles.

Christmas is looking like a write-off, until Marshall suggests they make the best of what they have, and work together. The avid outdoorsman has a special touch with people…and with Eliza in particular. Soon she realizes Marshall isn’t just fixing Christmas — but her broken heart, too.

My Review:

This is definitely a one of a kind Christmas romance. I loved how Carmichael highlighted the spirit of the season, and it flows through the story. Carmichael’s breathtaking descriptions not only show you the beauty of Montana at Christmastime, but also put you right in the middle of a blizzard with no escape. Combine this with her intriguing storyline and you have one that you won’t soon forget. Just like in real life, the wonder of this novella is in the little things: a look between two characters, the light shining off of a Christmas tree, the star of wonder appearing on Christmas night.

I found these characters to be unique and inviting. It was quite intriguing to see their personal insecurities come to light. They affected the entire story. Not only were the main characters very well developed, their pasts coming to light and showing how far they’ve come, but they are the type of people that you want to know. I’ll admit, the miraculous mood swings of all of the supporting characters on Christmas day made me giggle, and only worked because it was Christmas day.

This was a quick, one of a kind tale that will remind you where romance comes from and the spirit of Christmas.
