What happens if the only Christmas celebration you want to attend is one you haven't been invited to? USA Today bestselling author Sarah Morgan delights with this hilarious and heartwarming Christmas cracker of a novel!

A family gathering

This Christmas the Miller siblings have one goal—to avoid their well-meaning family’s endless stream of prying questions. Ross, Alice and Clemmie have secrets that they don’t intend to share, and they are relying on each other to deflect attention.

An uninvited guest

Lucy Clarke is facing a Christmas alone and the prospect of losing her job. Unless she can win a major piece of business from Ross Miller, the season promises to be anything but festive. She’ll just deliver her proposal to his family home and then leave. After all, she wouldn’t want to intrude on the Miller family’s perfect Christmas.

A Christmas to remember

When Lucy appears on the Miller family’s snow-covered Highland doorstep, she's mistaken for Ross’s girlfriend. By the time the confusion is cleared up, they're snowed in—she can’t leave, even if she wants to! But does she want to? As secrets spill out like presents from an overstuffed stocking and the chemistry between her and Ross ignites, this is going to be either Lucy's worst Christmas ever or the best mistake of her life.

Snowed In for Christmas by Sarah Morgan is an emotional story of love and family.  I loved this heartwarming story full of family drama.

Lucy Clarke is a young and ambitious marketing professional who loves her job, but, business isn’t good right now, and she knows her boss will have to lay some folks off soon if the business doesn’t pick up.  She’s worried because it’s the best job she’s ever had and she gets along with everyone at work and has the best boss she’s ever had.  Lucy has had her share of grief in her life, her parents died when she was young, and her grandmother raised her, but she died two years ago, leaving Lucy without any family.  

The three adult children in the Miller family all live in London, and their family home is up in Scotland.  Ross, Alice, and Clemmie all conspire to hide secrets from their overprotective mother before they go home for Christmas.  Ross doesn’t want to listen to his mother ask him about his love life again, so he makes up a fictional girlfriend named Lucy.  Alice’s boyfriend Nico just proposed marriage, but she hasn’t said yes yet, and she doesn’t want her parents to know about the proposal.  Clemmie has her own secret that she won’t even tell to her siblings.  

Lucy decides to bring her marketing proposal to Scotland where Ross Miller lives in order to ensure he sees it before January.  She only wants to stop by and drop off the proposal, but a huge snowstorm makes it impossible to leave.  With all the Miller family chaos over the holidays, which secrets will get out, and how will this family cope?  

There are a lot of characters in this book, but not too many.  They are all well developed and I enjoyed them all.  The family home in Scotland sounds wonderful, as well as the nearby little village.  With the big snowstorm, everything is decorated for Christmas and gives the book a nice heartwarming feel.  

I highly recommend Snowed in for Christmas to anyone who enjoys heartwarming Christmas stories.  I received a complimentary copy of this book.  The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

  1. I haven’t started reading it yet (as you have said for me it isn’t published until late October!), but I am excited to start after reading your review.

    I haven’t seen about the 12 books of Christmas Challenge – I shall have to investigate further, however 12 might be a little bit out of my reading ability!

    Have a great week!

  2. njfjbfdfddf the book basically just sounds so so nice AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR REVIEW??!!! plus CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THE COVERS??? both the versions look GORGEOUS, but especially the uk version ok???? THE COLOR SCHEME!!! so excited to read the book AND DID I MENTION YOUR REVIEW IS PERFECTION???

  3. This sounds hilarious! I can only imagine what Lucy’s boss ends up asking her to do. Lol. Definitely perfect for the holidays! I was just settling into fall, but I had a Christmas book and now I’m getting prepared for Christmas. Woohoo!

    • It is more of a family drama set during Christmas than a Christmas book. It’s not cheesy with “Christmas Magic” like some books.

  4. Those are some big authors quoted from the publisher. I’m glad you enjoyed it, I’ll add it to my wishlist for my holiday reading. Great review!
