Emily Diemer, who cooks for the guests, dotes on Snowball, but she's not thrilled about another new arrival at the B&B: Miss Tilly's nephew, Lukas. Which is odd, because Snowball's animal instincts tell her that ...more

3.75 Hearts This was a quick read that had me read to start the holidays. I will admit it was the cover that dragged me in and then I read the synopsis and thought “Why not?” and I am glad I did. This is a sweet holiday romance set about by a kitten who’s animal instinct tells her Emily and Lukas are supposed to be together.

Having had kittens throughout my life I could imagine every scene of this little furball… I mean Snowball… as it happens.

I have never read a book where one of the points of view comes from a furry kitten and I loved it! This book is fast, easy, and adorable! Perfect for the holiday season. I thank Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book.

This is a must-read for the holiday season! In this enchanting Christmas romance we see a small snippet of each chapter told from the point of view of an adorable kitten. I mean, just look at the fluffy wuffy cuteness that is the cover art, and tell me you're not intrigued! As if that wasn't enough, we have a snowy landscape at a picturesque Inn, two people who fall in love, and German Christmas traditions and food on top of everything. While reading this book, believe me when I say it will leav ...more

I am a total sucker for sweet Christmas romances with adorable fluffy kittens playing cupid for a young misguided couple. Mischievous Snowball permanently grabbed my heart when she snuck into Emily's purse and hitched a ride on baked good deliveries!

Emily is chief cook/baker/handyman/manager of Weber Haus, a Victorian inn owned by the aging Miss Tilly. Visiting this Christmas is Lukas, Tilly's nephew and a world famous photographer who is too busy globe trotting to visit regularly and see that

Cute, sweet, and funny—exactly what I needed just now! I like the idea to switch between the perspectives of Lukas, Emily, and Snowball, but would have liked some scenes from Miss Tilly’s POV as well.

If you are looking for the purrfect heartwarming holiday escape, you've found it!

I had so much fun with Snowball's adventures to help Emily and Lukas realize that they are meant to be together and become her forever family. I hope you love it too!

Look for Snowball's Christmas in stores and online everywhere!

Snowball’s Christmas has to be THE cutest Christmas story I’ve read so far in 2020 – and I read a lot of Christmas Romance year-round. And I’m very happy to discover that Snowball will be back next holiday season in 2021 with another tale to be told.

And Snowball does jump in often with her own narrative on the happenings with her stubborn humans that she intends to be her forever home-mates… just keep an eye out for a kitten’s voice every now and then as you dive into

Aunt Tilly, who is nearing 80-years-old owns Weber Haus, a Victorian inn at the edge of a small town. Emily works for her as the cook, but is also working on launching her dream business, a bakery. Lukas is Tilly's nephew, but was raised by her after his parents died when he was a child. He's a big shot nature photographer now, spending his days traveling the world, and hasn't been home to visit in years. So, when Lukas comes to visit for Christmas, Emily is suspicious of this good-for-nothing n ...more

Snowball is a tiny, fluffy white kitten with blue eyes, who lives at Weber Haus, the Victorian B&B run by Miss Tilly. Emily Diemer also lives at Weber Haus, where she cooks for the inn guests and dotes on Snowball. However, Emily is not happy when she learns Miss Tilly’s nephew, Lukas, is arriving. Emily finds it terrible that Lukas has left his aunt, who raised him after his parents were killed when he was ten, alone to run the inn herself (she is well past retirement age) with what little mone ...more

As a rule, I'm not a huge fan of sweet romances, I like something with a little bit more spice. The premise of this one appealed to me, even if it's not Christmas right now, the idea of a kitten trying to sort everyone out and get the couple together appealed to me.
Lukas has returned to his Aunt's bed and breakfast for the first time in years. While he's been gone, things have become quite run down and it's clear that she has been struggling. Amazing baker and cook Emily has been helping her out

Princess Fuzzypants here: Not being a big fan of romance books, I do like to read ones with kitties as the hero or heroines. They do not need to be Pulitzer Prize material or something terribly profound. I like gentle and sweet stories that makes the reader smile with content at the end. This book is an excellent example of what I enjoy.

Lukas, a world renowned photographer, returns to his aunt’s B & B where he was raised after the death of his parents. He has tried to help his aunt but she is a

A fun Christmas romance.

Snowball is a cute, but mischievous, kitten who knows what she wants and won't settle for less. So, when she decides Emily Diemer and Lukas Weber belong together, she does everything she can to make it happen.

Lukas has returned to Weber Haus, the B&B where his Aunt Tilly raised him, for the first Christmas in years. As a professional photographer, he was usually traveling all year long. This year he wanted to be home with his aunt. Little did he realize meeting Emily, wh

This was a sweet Christmas romance. If you are a big fan of Hallmark movies this is a perfect read for you. Lukas returns home to his aunt Tilley’s B&B, Weber Haus, for a Christmas visit after a two year absence. He’s a professional photographer who travels extensively for his work. Emily is the baker/cook/assistant for Weber Haus who has never met Lukas but has a poor opinion of him based on her perception of his absence and his apparent lack of attention to his aunt.

This is the sweetest romance I've read in a while. I couldn't stop smiling through the whole book, especially when we see everything through little Snowball's eyes. Anyone who has had a cat can identify with the antics our white fluff ball gets into. She is determined to make Emily and Lukas see the chemistry between them that she does with her feline instincts. Emily has been working at Weber Haus while dreaming of opening her own bakery. She is not thrilled when the owner's nephew, Lukas, show ...more

She wants Tilly and them to recapture and renew that family is the heart ❤️ of the home.

Snowball’s Christmas is an animal fiction novel just in time for Christmas by author Kristen McKanagh.

Lucas Weber, Miss Tilly’s nephew, is all grown up and Emily Diemer can’t stand him. Or, can she? Snowball the mischievous cat is in the middle of everything including matchmaking.

This novella would make a great Hallmark romance movie for animal lovers and all things Christmas.

The cover is what tempted me to pick up the book and read it. Some parts of the book were dry and others were quite funny

Cat Matchmaker

I loved this light easy reading story about a matchmaking cat named Snowball. Emily helps Tilly at Weber Haus as she saves to start her own bakery. She has a white cat named Snowball who is a bit of a rascal.

Lukas is Tilly’s nephew that she raised. He is a famous photographer and has come home to spend Christmas with his aunt.

Snowball decides that Lukas and Emily should fall in love and get married. This matchmaker cat keeps causing situations to get the two together. The cat made

I received an advanced reader copy on NetGalley to review.

The book is a light, fluffy romance that would be perfect for the holidays. Lukas comes home to see his aunt over the holidays and finds the inn that she runs in need of repairs. The cook, Emily, is run down from her work at the house and her side business, baking. Snowball is convinced that they should be together and has made it her mission to bring them together.

The story switches between the POVs of Lukas and Emily, but also include

This book is a light, delightful Christmas romance. I am not normally a big fan of sweet romances (although I do have a couple of series I enjoy), but I am a sucker for cats. How could I not be drawn in by that adorable kitten on the cover!

The story is told in third person alternating chapters by Emily and Lukas. But popping in from time to time is a first-person perspective from Snowball who is the matchmaker in the story. In my opinion, those are the best parts of the book.

This is a nice Christmas story. I really liked Snowball; she was very funny and kept the plot moving. Lukas is a nice guy who is trying to make the best choices. Emily is frazzled through much of the book, but she is a very hard worker. I also liked Aunt Tilly quite a lot.
If you like enemies-to-lovers stories with a lot of bickering, then this story is for you. I wanted Emily and Lukas to clear up their false misassumptions earlier than they did. But some of the bickering is funny. They did have

Emily wants to have her own bakery, but that dream is in the future. For now, she is helping Tilley at Weber Haus, a B&B. Tilley is getting up in years, and Emily is a bit put out that Lukas, Tilly’s nephew, hasn’t been around in quite a while, to help out. His job as a photographer takes him out of the country, but still, she thinks he should be here at least some of the time. And then he shows for Christmas, and Emily slowly changes her mind about the handsome nephew. Though frosty at first, t ...more

Whimsical story about an adorable kitten named Snowball. She loves Miss Tilly and Emily who work at the bed and breakfast inn. Miss Tilly's nephew Lukas is coming to visit. When Emily and Lukas meet, it is instant attraction and little Snowball notices this.

Little Snowball gets into mischief trying to get Emily and Lukas together. It is endearing.

This story would make a wonderful HALLMARK CHANNEL movie.

Thank you to NetGalley, Kristen McKanagh and Kensington Books for the ARC of Snowballs Christmas. This is my personal review for the ARC.

Snowball's Christmas was a fun holiday story to read. Having a kitten be a match maker was such a fun way to bring Lukas and Emily together.
Snowball wants a forever home and getting Lukas and Emily to see they belong together is the perfect way to have that forever home!
