If you want a quick, fun and light hearted read with some steamy romance, then this is the perfect story.
My first introduction to the authors books and certainly won't be my last! ...more
I could read this as a long story, I think that the characters would be so lovely to follow. After just the short snippet of their lives I read I would happily say that I would read more. Can’t wait to read more of Laura’s books ❤️
Mel is travelling to a wedding in the snow and has an accident. A man in the car travelling behind her stops to help and they realise they are attending the same wedding but what part is he playing in the wedding.
I loved this book. It was funny, steamy and cute. Another top read from Laura Barnard
This is certainly my kind of romantic adventure; Melinda becomes trapped on the road, in the snow, with a cute, hot stranger! There seems no other answer for it, but for them to stay together in the car, keeping each other warm as the c ...more
Melinda is on her way to a wedding she really does not want to attend, when she skids in bad weather and crashes her car. The car behind stops, and the driver, a very attractive stranger, offers her a lift to the wedding, as he is also attending. They set off, ...more
Earlier this month I was excited to be part of the cover reveal for Laura Barnard's latest book - Bagging Alice - which is released today, Thursday 1st November (click here for more details). I enjoyed that book so much that I immediately went in search of other books by this fun author.
I LOVED this short story. It is a very quick and fun read! The characters are just perfect although the problem with short stories is that you just don't ge ...more

I love anything Laura writes, so I was extremely happy when I heard she had written a short story, but I do wish it was longer.

This feature has all the best traits of a fun rom com book. If you have an hour or so and you need a pick me up, grab this beauty an ...more

This is a story about a girl who gets stranded on her way to a wedding with a very hot man.
Unfortuately Sex, Love and Mistletoe was not my kind of read. I love short stories but this one was defintely too short (34 pages) for me to get into and get a connection with the characters. The story is well written (especially the sex scene) and has some great humor in it.I'm not averse to try another story by ...more
I received a review copy
I am all about holiday books right now, and I love sneaking in these quick little stories for a burst of holiday cheer! This cute novella had a bit of everything – humor, steamy scenes, a mystery. I read it in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed myself, especially the way it ended. It kept a smile on my face the whole time and is definitely a good pick for your holiday reading list!
I have had a great time reading this short story.It's so cute and funny and the sex scene is really hot.When I finished it I hoped to read more about the main characters...maybe in the future :)
I want to thank the author for giving me the chance to read an ARC.
For readers who don't like sex in books please be warned before you start reading. However it does have humour and a lot of emotion in it as well. Great characters and although most of us hadn't stopped a wedding we all have things that have deeply embarrassed us in the past.
She is late and the snow is making visibility impossible. Now someone is flashing their lights at her. As she tries to make sense of this her car crashes into a tree. The offer fro ...more

It tells a story about Melinda and her eventful journey to a winter wedding of her best friends friend. Whilst driving in the snow Melinda unfortunately crashes her car - luckly in to the path a very handsome man, Aidan. What happens next will frankly melt a iceberg and defrost your toes. Think Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet in the car scene in Titanic, with extra hand prints on the window - phew!
Another amazing story by the fabulous Laura Barnard.
Sex,Snow and Mistletoe is only a short story but packs in laughter, emotions and so serious sexual scene.
It's a brilliant romcom if you have a spare hour read this book well worth it.
I loved every minute of it. ...more
This is a cute short story about two strangers being stranded on the side of the road during a snow storm. It is well-written and entertaining. If you are looking for an enjoyable lunch break read then I recommend Sex, Snow, and Mistletoe.

She lives in Hertfordshire, UK, with her husband and daughter.
In her spare time she enjoys drinking her body weight in tea, cuddling dogs, matchmaking her friends (very successfully), binging True Crime, indulging in the power nap and reading past her bedtime.
