Prolific romance author Debbie Macomber brings readers a new Christmas tale, complete with a trip to snowy Alaska. Tired of being taken for granted by her boss and love interest, Brad Fulton, Jenna Campbell throws caution to the wind and travels to Alaska to meet her on-line pen pal Dalton Gray. But when her flight lands in Fairbanks, and Dalton isn't there as planned, her surly seatmate, Reid Jamison, agrees to take her to Beesley, Dalton's hometown, until he discovers that Dalton is the man she is meeting.
Because Dalton jilted Reid's sister Lucy, Reid "kidnaps" a furious Jenna and takes her to his home in Snowbound.
Humor and romance ensue as Reid and Jenna find themselves fighting an unlikely attraction between this burly pipeline worker and a sunny California girl, as a snowstorm forces them to maintain an air of civility in Reid's humble cabin. Quirky old-timers Palmer and Addy add comic relief to this fluffy Christmas confection, especially when Brad, Dalton, and Jenna's often married mother, Chloe, all show up in Snowbound. Whether one is snowbound or not, Ms. Macomber's latest provides welcome holiday cheer, away from the hustle and bustle.
