Review- One Snowy Night by Jill Shalvis


New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis returns to Heartbreaker Bay with a fun and festive holiday novella!

It’s Christmas Eve and Rory Andrews is desperate to get home to the family she hasn’t seen in years. Problem is, her only ride to Lake Tahoe comes in the form of the annoyingly handsome Max Stranton, and his big, goofy, lovable dog Carl.

Hours stuck in a truck with the dead sexy Max sounds like a fate worse than death (not), but Rory’s out of options. She’s had a crush on Max since high school and she knows he’s attracted to her, too. But they have history… and Max is the only one who knows why it went south.

They’ve done a good job of ignoring their chemistry so far, but a long road trip in a massive blizzard might be just what they need to face their past… and one steamy, snowy night is all it takes to bring Max and Rory together at last.

I love Jill Shalvis and everything she writes. Her books are comfort reads for me so obviously I picked up One Snowy Night which is a novella set in her Heartbreaker Bay series. Now I have to clarify, the last book I read in her Heartbreaker Bay series which was The Trouble with Mistletoe was kind of a disappointment for me. One Snowy Night on the other hand didn't disappoint me but it didn't blow me away either. 

Firstly, I am not very fond of novellas so I knew I had to keep my expectations low for One Snowy Night. This is the story of Rory and Max. Rory is one of the girls whom we'd met in The Trouble With Mistletoe. She works in a pet shop and is in general trying to get her life together. Rory had a hard past. She had some bad experiences which made her wary to trust anyone. I liked Rory. Once we get her backstory its easy to understand her.

Now Rory needs to get home for Christmas. She wants to fulfil the promise she's made to her family. But she's stuck and her only mode of transportation is Max and his adorable dog. Max and Rory have history from high school and its not the good kind. Max is still holding a grudge but Rory is determined to talk it out with him. I liked Max but I didn't find anything super special about him.

Max and Rory are stuck travelling home together and obviously sparks fly in closed quarters. Finally things are cleared up between them and they start seeing each other for who they are in the present. That also comes with accepting their feelings for each other. I liked Jill Shalvis' writing style but I definitely wanted more time with Max and Rory which was just not possible with a novella format. So overall even though I liked One Snowy Night it was an average read for me.
