Coming home for the holidays after eight long years to say goodbye, I found myself saying hello.

Melissa—or Missy as I remembered her—had had a crush on me. But being a typical eighteen-year-old, I didn’t pay much attention to the blushing twelve-year-old.

I walked away without so much as a backwards glance. But now? Now I can’t tear my eyes away.

This was just the novella to get me in the holiday spirt! Sullivan had stayed away from home too long and his return, as well as the reason for it, became the catalyst for a new stage in his life. I loved Melissa’s dedication to the Moores. She was a selfless sweetheart with a huge heart and Sullivan was a great match for her.

The story was well written, featuring a humorous old woman who stole the scene a time or two with her hilarious quips, emotional moments that made my heart clench, and a s

Sullivan hasn't been home in years. But when his mother calls him to say his grandmother is dying, he knows he has to head back. He certainly had no idea the family friend, the girl who had a huge crush on him, is his grandmother's nurse. And when he sees Melissa (Missy), he's instantly taken with the gorgeous woman, never knowing she is the girl he had thought was so annoying. Will the snow that his Grandmother loves so much, and the holiday magic, work on his hardened heart and give him an

This is a sweet, slow-burning holiday romance worthy of a ‘Hallmark’ tag.

Let It Snow by Kristie Leigh was a delightful little holiday read. It was sweet and fun, and totally unGrinch-worthy.
Work-a-holic Sullivan has been forced to return home to visit his dying Grandmother. While there he reconnects with a girl from his past. Melissa or Missy as he once knew her, is several years his junior and when he left home eight years before to attend college, she was only twelve. But she’d had a huge cru

3.5 Stars. *My review kept going between 3 & 3.5 stars. In the end, I decided 3.5 was fair for this book.

This book started out keeping my interest but at around the halfway point, I was confused. Let me explain...

Sullivan and Missy.....
Sullivan is a successful, wealthy businessman who stayed away from his hometown deliberately for the past eight years. Longer actually. He mentioned that he had a wonderful family and great memories. He claimed, that after his father died, he couldn't face going

I love quick holiday reads. This was a new to me author. It was a sweet reunion story. Sullivan is finally going back home after years of being away. He is back to see his grandmother who is sick and is reunited with a girl who had the biggest crush on him years ago. But now, she's all grown up and he can't stop thinking about her. Missy and Sullivan were around each other growing up, there is a 6 year difference between them, their parents were really close friends. But, growing up, when he sen ...more

Coming home for the holidays after eight long years to say goodbye, I found myself saying hello...

Gone was the girl with braces and her place was a woman who took my breath away.

I just had to prove to her I wasn’t the same guy I was back then. I prayed for a Christmas miracle, but I never expected this.

This book is so dang cute! I’m talking hallmark levels of Christmasy feel good here. Let It Snow would make even the grinch long for a hot cup of cocoa while sitting next to a Christmas tree. You’ve got one workaholic who genuinely has a good heart, one sweet caring woman, some family feel goods, a bit of tears, and a whole lot of swoon all wrapped up with a pretty little bow in this holiday read!

A truly Hallmark Christmas Book!

If like me you love the holiday session you can never wait for the hallmark Xmas movies to come on the TV - you snuggling up with your coco and get lost in the romance. 'Let it Snow' will give you that feeling! But don't worry there is plenty of heat between the sheets.

Sullivan is a hard worker that treats his employees with the respect they deserve, and they respect him equally if not more and he makes sure his employees and their happiness come first. He hasn’t been back to his home to see his family in years and wasn’t planning on going back this year for Christmas either until his mother calls to let him know his grandmother isn’t doing good. Sullivan immediately heads out and rushes to his childhood home so he can at least say goodbye to his grandmother. ...more

I received an arc in exchange for an honest review. This book has everything from loss, to second chances to love. I liked this book, but I felt the author rushed things a bit because it was a novella. Sullivan hasn’t been home for 8 years. His mom calls him with the news his grandmother isn’t doing well and he decides to go home for the holidays. When Sullivan gets home runs into an old family friend, but she’s not the same little girl he remembers, now she’s a woman. Melissa always had a crush ...more

This book was really emotionally for and I had to step away from it a couple of times. The Hero in our story hasn't been home for Christmas in 8 years not since his dad died. When his mom calls him to ask once again if he coming home for Christmas he tell her no and she tell him his Grandmothers dying and they don't think she'll make it past the Holiday. I don't want to give the whole book away its pulls on your heartstrings my grandmother passed away in August and her favorite holiday was Chris ...more

I really enjoyed Let It Snow, it was a quick holiday read that go me in the spirit of the holidays while also falling in love with a few characters along the way. Let It Snow is just about what you would expect and want from a Christmas novella, this is a great book to curl up with on a cold winter night and lose yourself for a few hours. Kristie Leigh brought on just the right amount of heat and chemistry to these characters, because Melissa and Sullivan have a history from way back in the day, ...more

Sullivan hasn't been home for the holiday since his father died. His grandmother is seriously ill, and he misses her, and his mother, too. Melissa has no family. Her parents died in an accident, and Sullivan's mother and grandmother "adopt" her - she's Granny's nurse, and lives with them. She had a huge crush on Sullivan when they were younger, but he doesn't recognize her at first. This is a hot little story - I loved this romance. Sullivan and Melissa are on a slow burn once he realizes who sh ...more

This is the third book I read by Kristie Leigh and I thoroughly enjoyed it and will and would recommend it to any romance novel reader. This is a short, easy read about two people who were raised together after our heroines parents are killed in an automobile accident. At the times she is twelve years old and he is eighteen finding her annoying. Not so when they see each other again after eight years and his grandmother is dying and he comes home to say goodbye finding our heroine is now her nur ...more

This novella has one of those Christmas holiday movie vibes. It’s a sweet romance.

Missy and Sullivan were childhood friends but she was younger than him and just an afterthought in his mind. Missy always crushed on him.

Years later Sullivan finally comes home after being away for a while. He doesn’t even recognize Missy at first.

Once Sullivan realizes who Missy is they quickly bounce back into friendship followed by a sweet love. Christmas wishes do come true for this couple.

This was a great read that was very enjoyable. The story is really sweet and takes you away from your everyday reality. It moves along at a nice reading speed and transitions between scenes and characters nicely. The characters are very well written and you feel as though you know them personally and you want to see them happy and succeed no matter what may be preventing them. This is a enjoyable read that needs to be on your TBR list.

I really enjoyed this story. There is a lot going on, but it's worth the read. Sullivan has been away from home for 8 years. Missy (Melissa) runs into Sullivan at his mom's guest house. She feels her crush has been reignited, but doesn't want Sullivan to know. There is some angst, but not a lot. There are several tear-jerker moments in this book.

I recommend reading this book.

A quick enjoyable read.

Know what you are getting: not a long story but the author does an amazing job of filling in all the gaps so that it is not full of holes while also not rushing too much.

I felt that the author had the ability to convey some depth to the personalities of the characters, despite the length of the book, bringing a greater sense of reality to her story.

This was a fast paced, VERY fast paced and underdeveloped Hallmark/Lifetime holiday movie with a few extras. **spoilers**
A surprise virgin
Horrendous male/female gender stereotypes
Lack of any reality
Half of the book was after Christmas.

I'm a feisty redheaded Canadian/American who fell in love with romance novels when my friend Phil bought me a Kindle and it hasn't left my side since.

My fave books to read are anything taboo and super sick and twisted, I'm not sure I will ever write anything dark but I would love to give it a shot one day.

I live in South Florida with my high school sweetheart and 3 kids.

I grew up in Burlington, ON
