About the book: Mariah Lacoste has come to Snow Valley to help her cousin revive Artisan's Knack, a boutique on Main Street that has definitely seen better days. Yeah, the timing might not be great—a major overhaul of the store plus maid of honor duties for a wedding, all during the worst winter Snow Valley has seen in a decade—but Mariah is confident she can handle it. But can she handle Riker Carmichael, the best man and rumored player, who sets out to steal her heart?
My review: I love these Snow Valley romances! They are perfect to snuggle up by the fire with a cup of cocoa or a bag of popcorn with! I loved the way that as I read this one, I felt as if I was in a winter wonderland.
Mariah is such a great character! I loved the way she was willing to look stupid herself, in order to help her cousin Amy feel better about her fiance Jake and his trip up the canyon. I had to laugh when she got herself stuck...more than once...and have both Jake and Riker get her out. I loved the way she seemed to be a girl who wanted nothing to do with the outdoors, but she ends up loving ice fishing and playing in the snow.
I liked Riker too. I liked the way he knew that Mariah was what he had been looking for. And he was willing to work hard to get past all of her defenses that she throws up to protect herself from men like her father.
This one has a cute, clean romance and it's a lot of fun to read! And since it's a novella, it's a quick read, what a great way to spend an afternoon!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
