Recommended to Tessa by:
20th of november might seem a bit early for a Christmas story, but today was cold, dreary and dark, so basically Christmas weather, right? This story is nice, feel-good fluffiness and perfect for a day like this, so I would advice anyone in need of something to make a dreary day feel warmer to buy this and read it, cause yes. Day better, Tessa warmed :P

(I'm bad at in-depth reviews, but the characters are nice, Abby is cute and now I really want some snow.)

"Home in a Snowstorm" is a wonderfully sweet story with all the charm that a Christmas tale needs. Ava Kelly's writing draws you in and doesn't let you go until the end, when you put the book down with a happy sigh and a smile. In a very short time they manage to make the characters feel like old friends, and little Abby is completely adorable. This is a perfect tale of finding a home and family just in time for the holidays. ...more

Snowstorms, a lonely elementary school teacher, a cute kid – what more could I ask for in a Christmas story? ‘Home in a Snowstorm’ is one of those slow, gentle, very warm tales that had me smile almost all the way. Both main characters are somewhat older, a little shy, and attracted to each other with the irresistible force of something that is clearly meant to be.

Short, stupid and so sweet

It's not a literary masterpiece, it won't shake anyone's world. There are no surprises, no twists to keep you on edge.

What it is is really sweet, comfortable little story of Yuletime love and a new family. It leaves a warm and fuzzy feelings behind and for me that's enough.

Recommended to be read wrapped inside a blanket and with a warm drink at hand.

I have to say that this has become one of my favorite little Christmas stories. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Daniel and Jeffrey. I also adore Abby. I love the idea of the snowglobes representing the idea we have of HEA. Thank you for sharing this story.
the pacing was definitely something but it was cute enough i didn't mind

OH! This was just too darling and I’m so sad it ended. I wish it was a full length novel so bad, I want to read moreeee!

I got an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for a fair review.

This was so cute and heart-warming! This short story really left me with the lovely feeling one gets when snuggled into a blanket, drinking warm chocolate on a snowy day. I live in a place where it never snows, so I've only experienced this sort of cosiness once, yet this story gave me all the vicarious comfort :D The characters have great chemistry, and I was pleasantly surprised by the kid. I usually don't like children in

This novella is without a doubt the sweetest most adorable Christmas read this year. It's a story about chosen family, in this case Jeff and Abby choosing Daniel. The is no heat here just tons of emotion. Yeah, that means I bawled my eyes out and my sinuses are now clogged. It was worth it. And yes, the decision at the end is a bit unlikely, but I don't care it still deserves 5 stars! ...more

What a lovely story. Daniel Wu is a school teacher, looking to spend another Christmas at home, with only his books for company, and his heating has gone out. As the snow starts to fall, he finds himself assigned transport detail, and has to take little Abby Weber (Wednesday Addams fan, and an excellent character) home to her father.

Jeff Weber is a very hardworking single father. Unable to work at his construction company, due to a broken leg, Jeff is a good dad with a magnetic personality.


Just okay, moved a little too quickly for me to buy it. There was just one kiss and what felt like a lead-up to a HFN ,but Daniel was moving in with Jeff within two days.

Super cute shorty about the holidays and Jeff, Abby, Jeff's daughter and Daniel, Abby's teacher. All together for a snowy five days and what happens during the magical holiday season. Made me smile goofily all the way to work. And yippeee, there's a book 2! ...more

It was a nice and heart-warming story, but just a bit too short for me to really connect with the characters.

Short, sweet and heart-warming.
The perfect story for those cold days were you might find yourself longing for some warmth and fluff.

Total fluffy fluff. The only slight complaint I've got is that the romance moves kind of fast but that is the nature of short stories. I would have loved to read another hundred or so pages of this because I liked the guys and their chemistry could have carried it without a problem. Abby was even surprisingly great and I don't like kids. And I do love the way the relationship develops: all warmth and contentment instead of sex and passion - which is my much preferred romance development.
