My Review:

A remote family cabin . . . . a matchmaking family . . . . two people in need of healing sent there without knowing the other would be staying . . . . a chance for love or a disaster in waiting to happen?

Dr Melody Mayberry had travelled to her sister’s family cabin in the mountains for some time to reflect on her life and choices. She certainly hadn’t expected her firefighter brother-in-law to already be there recovering from a serious injury which nearly cost him his life. Neither wanted anyone else there but then their joint family are all planning on joining them for Christmas . . . . including Mel’s very pregnant sister. However, there are snowstorms, snowmen to build, a tree and the cabin to decorate and, of course, highly competitive games to play and maybe hearts to heal and love to find?

This has some really lovely characters, and a mother who is definitely not! This is a story of family secrets, hidden guilt, a manipulator, tragedy, hope and love. It is a moving festive read that is a quick and easy read, a brilliant story to relax and escape into and a delightful family drama.

Thank you to Entangled and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.


Dr. Melody Mayberry’s life just took a turn that’s left her questioning everything. Where better to hide out than the remote family cabin in the mountains? The last thing she expects to find there is her swoon-worthy brother-in-law, the one man who may have more baggage than her.

Finn Matthews is not ready to face the fact that the recent injury he sustained in a fire may have ended his firefighting career. He’s not interested in sharing the cabin with anyone, let alone Melody, and their family just texted with yet another unwelcome surprise—they’ll be there Christmas Eve.

To keep their meddling family at bay, the two team up to fake a little holiday cheer. But between ridiculously competitive Monopoly games, marathon Christmas decorating, and a storm that strands them together with nothing but a fire and a warm couch, they realize something major—their fake holiday cheer isn’t feeling so fake anymore, and that’s something neither of these two Grinches expected..

    Hmmm, sounds like love is in the air, or should I say cabin. Lovely review, Elaine.
