This is a short story novella that I found on the Kindle Store for free and thought I would give it a go. I thought that this was a good seasonal story perfect for winter time. I found that the book was a little bit predictable,which took alittle abit of fun out of reading it, however the writting style of Jude Ryan made the story flow well and was easy to read. If you are looking for a lighthearted,

Janna is a London business woman and not Christmas lover, but she has to put on her best face to work with Alistair Randall, CEO of a big Christmas tree supplier company. His company is going down and she's about to loose one of her biggest clients, so it's her job to try and find him a way to keep the company and her services.

Snower Under, as the title says, is a very short story, more about the Christmas spirit and celebrations than a romance between Janna and Alistair. T

This was a very short book about a London business woman and a Scottish land owner. They are brought together as Alastair's Christmas tree company uses Janna's advertising firm. This wasn't really a love story, more of a promise of one that could develop in the future. My thoughts when I started the book were that I enjoyed the authors writing style but this was spoilt but the rushed feel of the story. It seemed to follow the [u]old[/u] Mills and Boon style o
Janna and Alistair find the Christmas season difficult for similar reasons and where one tries to embrace the holiday, the other does their best to avoid it. When Janna is sent by work to try and salvage the company Alistair is desperately trying to keep together, they discover they have more than just their feelings about Christmas in common.

This is a very quick read that didn't really have much going on. There was a hint of a romance between Janna and Alistair but nothing to en-capture the hea
Lovely seasonal short story, Janna works in a top London PR form. She is sent against her better wishes to Scotland to do a consultation with Alistair who runs a failing Christmas tree farm. Janna hates Christmas so to be snowed in while out there is her worst nightmare. Things go from bad to worse when Alastair tells her rather than lose any employees he is going to terminate her contract.
In the course of being stuck at the family estate Janna and Alistair explore their mutual dislike for Chri

Just okay for this short story. It does show a writing style that is easy to read, but the plot is predictable. I do have a problem with a Christmas story that uses Jesus' name as a swear word. The only thing Christmassy about the plot was that it takes place in late December. Quick read - an hour on the treadmill.
This was ok but not great. The biggest issue was that nothing happened - and I mean nothing. No kiss, no revelation for hero or heroine, just nothing. It didn't have any Christmas spirit.
A lovely little short story to read this time of year. Could guess what was going to happen throughout most of it, but still an enjoyable read.
This was a very short story in which nothing happened. It ends very eruptly, when the story could have continued and been great.
Short, sweet Christmas story! Really enjoyed this.

Recommended for a feel-good holiday read.
Typical cheezy, light, romantical nonsense set around Christmas. Not my kind of Christmas story.
Well written, but lacking in both plot & true Christmas magic, as I'd hoped.
