Christmas isn’t fashion editor Roxanne Hudson’s style, but when she finds herself snowed in with a handsome stranger, she might just discover the magic of the season after all.
Roxanne Hudson does not like the holidays. They come with too many family obligations that take her away from work as a rising fashion editor in New York City. But this Christmas might be Grandma Myrtle’s last, and Roxanne’s parents want her to spend the holiday at the family cabin in the Green Mountains. With her boyfriend out of the country for a photo shoot, Roxanne decides to brave the long commute—and the wilderness—to spend Christmas in Vermont.
After an uncomfortable call from her boyfriend starts the trip off badly, Roxanne is blindsided by a blizzard on the snowy mountain road, where the last thing she hears before losing consciousness is sleigh bells. When she’s rescued by Mark Foster, a handsome park ranger who’s the exact opposite of everything she always thought she wanted, Roxanne seeks her grandmother’s wisdom and discovers an uncanny connection that could be a sign of what her life is really meant to be.
Sleigh Bells on Bread Loaf Mountain by Lindy Miller is a fun and festive story that is exactly what I want from a holiday book. Set in a gorgeous snowy small town with lively characters and even a cute dog, this book will give you all the Christmas feels you need.
Roxanne Hudson is a fashion editor at the trendy magazine Divine. She lives in New York City and is determined to make her mark in the fashion industry. Trips to her family cabin in the Green Mountains of Vermont are few and far between because Roxanne is focused on her career and can’t afford to spend anytime away. But, when her family begs her to come to the cabin for Christmas, she can’t refuse as this may be Grandma Myrtle’s last Christmas.
Roxanne makes the long drive by herself to meet with her family at the cabin. She didn’t anticipate, nor did she pack for the huge blizzard that was sweeping the northeast. When her car gets stranded on the way to the cabin, she’s rescued by a handsome park ranger, Mark. Due to the blizzard, he can’t get her to her family’s cabin, but he does take her to his cabin until the worst of the blizzard is over.
I really enjoyed this story, it feels so much like a Hallmark movie, and the holiday atmosphere throughout the story is just what I wanted in a Christmas book. Although it’s a light romantic story, it also touches on some of the difficult issues of modeling and the hazards of that profession. This story swept me away to the beautiful mountain cabin with Roxanne and Mark as they navigated their close quarters during the snowy storm. I enjoyed the Christmassy atmosphere especially when Mark and Roxanne delivered Christmas presents to homes on a SnowCat!
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a Christmas romance with a Hallmark movie feeling. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
