Guest Review: Sleigh Bells in The Snow by Sarah Morgan

Once upon a time Kayla loved Christmas
Now she’s more dedicated to her job than decking the halls, and can’t wait for the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ to be over.
Until she arrives at the enchanting Snow Crystal ski resort, determined to win gorgeous owner Jackson as a marketing client.
But wooing Jackson professionally quickly turns personal as they spend flirty festive nights in this glittering winter wonderland.
With snowflakes swirling and sleigh bells ringing…could Jackson be the one to make Kayla fall back under the Christmas spell?
Snow Crystal trilogy
Book 1 - Sleigh Bells in the Snow
Book 2 - Suddenly Last Summer
Book 3 - Maybe This Christmas
While the Snow Crystal novels can easily be read as standalone stories, you'll likely enjoy reading the earlier books in the series too!

Review: This title is book 1 in the Snow Crystal trilogy from the ever popular Sarah Morgan, one of my favourite Christmas story authors. I have read quite a few of her more recent books and was delighted to find some of the characters in those stories, and indeed the Snow Crystal ski resort, popping up in this one. I was drawn to this book by its excellent cover depicting a lovely snowy scene; once I began to read, I was hooked by the story as well. 

The main female character in the story is Kayla, an English PR executive working in New York. Due to a troubled past, she dreads the festive season and will do anything to avoid all the hype associated with Christmas. It seems that a perfect way of escaping all the fuss presents itself when she is sent off to spend Christmas at a prospective client's ski resort, where she has arranged to stay in the most secluded lodge available. However, she has reckoned without the appeal of the client in question, the rugged and handsome Jackson O'Neil, and, indeed, his whole family. Far from escaping Christmas, she is dragged reluctantly into the whole experience. 

I really enjoyed this story. It was an easy read and transported me off to this glorious ski resort in Vermont. The luxurious lodge where Kayla stayed was described in great detail, and all the activities available at the resort were brought to life by the skilful writing. I only wish it was all real so that I could book a holiday there myself. As well as the setting, I thought that the characters Sarah introduced were both interesting and believable. Jackson's family, although worried about the resort's future, are welcoming and understanding towards Kayla, even Grandfather Walter, who is so suspicious of change. Then, of course, there is the promise of romance; will Jackson and Kayla move their relationship from professional to something more personal? 

I would heartily recommend this book to anyone.  It is heartwarming and full of festive cheer, and couldn't fail to leave the reader feeling ready for Christmas. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series.
