Everyone dreams of a White Christmas.

But nobody dreams of one quite as much as Hal Benson.

An out-of-work actor, Hal has been hired as a stand-in weather forecaster by a ratings-chasing news channel. Hal couldn't care less whether it rains or not. It is just a job.

But then he meets Lizzie Foster. A rival weather forecaster, on a far more serious channel, Lizzie is bright

Quick quirky read regarding 2 weather presenters - one who is a very serious well educated in the field, Lizzie and one an actor who has just go the gig for 4 weeks, Hal.
Predictable but still a fun read!

3.5 stars!

This one was a bit quirky, but I loved the idea of having a bet of whether or not there was going to be a white Christmas and that bringing two unlikely people together!

It was okay to start but then it felt really rushed. The whole part about the competition between the two main characters was a weak and unnecessary addition. It could have been good, if it had been a more integral part of the story instead of just mentioned briefly toward the end of the book in a throwaway manner.

This was my 1st book by this author and I can safely say it will not be my last...I liked her style of writing.. loved the storyline and the characters....a lovely festive read...the only downside was it was too short...would have enjoyed a few more chapters....Recomended

Why was this so rushed? I mean it started off quite nicely but you never really got fully introduced to the characters. Plus these two kind of suck at flirting. Like they met for the first time and he asks her if she thinks they'll have snow for Christmas?

Thank God it only had 70 pages.

Kurzgeschichte schön und gut dafür sehr schwache Ausarbeitung der Handlung...ganz nett für weihnachtliche Stimmung zwischendurch aber das wars auch schon...leider

I wanted to love this novella so much! The first two-thirds of the book were great. Lee-Potter does a nice job of introducing the reader to Hal and Lizzie (the book's love interests) and slowly developing their love. It was refreshing to have a novella that didn't have a heavy insta-love feel to it. I thought Hal and Lizzie had a fairly natural-feeling relationship. I felt that the reason they met (Hal had to go to Lizzie's class on meteorology) and why they continued to spend time together (tal ...more

A FUN, LIGHT-HEARTED READ

This was a short romance of sorts between an unlikely pair.
She's a legitimate meteorologist working for what appeared to be a successful TV station. He's an actor, drifting from part to part and lands a job at a rival station as a temporary weather forecaster. The stations couldn't be more different in their approach, and the couple couldn't be more different in the way they do their job.
Lizzie's station apparently wasn't doing as well as she thought and was bought out b

Everyone needs a bit of pre-Christmas escapism, so make yourself a hot chocolate (or mulled wine), grab a mince pie (it's never too early for mince pies) and give yourself a couple of hours me-time with Emma's novella White Christmas. Perfect to get you in the right frame of mind for all the shopping, card writing and pressie wrapping to be done in the run up to the big day.

Lizzie isn't feeling very Christmassy, but a couple of chance meetings means things are set to change in her life. Unlike m

Lizzie is a meteorologist with a serious attitude to her work and when Hal comes along with charm and simplicity, she can’t help but bristle. They soon strike up a friendship but with Christmas looming ahead and the need to get the ratings up will the rivals find a middle ground?
This book intrigued me. I really liked Lizzie and Hal’s characters and the interplay between them but I wasn’t sure what either one thought of each other. There wasn’t a lot of romance to the book and the ending was qui

Light fluff, and quite short. Read in in one sitting at the train station waiting for a late train to pick up my husband. It was flurrying and it looked pretty and Christmas-like outside and I was weak and succumbed to a mushy Christmas fluff story. Sigh. I should know better, but like junk food, I occasionally snarf down a chick-lit book, which is sweet and tempting at the first, but too much sweet and fluff leaves me feeling the same as if I'd eaten 6 bags of cotton candy.

A quick holiday novella. This story was well written, with a good premise, but I thought the end moved too fast. I thought there was a great deal of potential in the end of the story, but the story wrapped up so fast that we were told what happened instead of seeing it play out. Also, the budding romance just happened at the end instead of developed. I'd be curious about what the author would do with a full length story.

Did I miss something here? I'm sorry but I thought that this book was very light: a short novella(less than an hour's reading at the hairdresser's), abrupt ending, uneven narrative ... The weather thing was continued ad nauseam and the stuff with the serious meteorologist presenting on TV in a onesie was as absurd as one of the characters saying that the onesie was "very fetching"! - and with no hint of sarcasm or humour ...! Maybe holiday reading by the pool with several glasses of wine?!

This book actually bored me. I understand they are weather reporters, but the fact that they talk all technical about it, it bores me. The characters are slightly shallow, vapid. I couldn't even really get into the story. This didn't feel like a true romance story. I just didn't feel it. It just wasn't there. This book really just did nothing for me.

Lizzie is a serious meteorologist, Hal an actor hired as a weather forecaster. They make a bet – will there be snow on 25th December?

As the contest, and their burgeoning relationship, gathers momentum, sparks begin to fly. But who will be the winner?

Cute read

This is a sweet Christmas read for YA. Festive competition between two weather casters, one real and one actor playing the part.

Cute little Christmas story. Set in London with a mild romance between an actor and a wether forecaster. A fun holiday read overall!

Quirky, quick contemporary Christmas romance that takes place in the UK. I enjoyed it but thought that some parts of the story didn't make sense.

This was more of a short story than a book. Just when it started getting going - it just wrapped up - very unsatisfactory

I'd give this 2.5 stars...

Started out really cute, but ending was too abrupt. Made the story kind of fall apart.
