Lizzie McKettrick cannot wait to get home. It’s been years since she’s been home to stay and she just can’t wait to be a part of everything again but more than that she’s bringing with her the man she hopes will propose. Whitley. He is such a gentleman. Always so gracious and giving, at least to her.

Why then is she having such a time keeping her eyes off of the stranger across from her. At least Whitley is asleep and hasn’t noticed. Actually, the only things Lizzie has heard from him in hours are complaints about the other passengers.

Then the unthinkable happens. The train is caught in an avalanche. Lizzie pops right up and starts helping and calming. Whitley, on the other hand, starts whining for laudanum, though there are other passengers truly injured. Whitley makes so with his flask while Lizzie & the doctor she was staring at help the passengers.

Will they make it out alive? Lizzie is positive her family will rescue them in short time but as the hours pass her faith falters. Whitley is positive they’ll die and that it’s Lizzie fault for inviting his on this journey. The doctor is realistic but still clams the passengers and keeps Lizzie’s hopes up.

My Thoughts

I really enjoyed this book. It was such a sweet story. Completely in tune with her other works yet not a ‘been there done that story’.

What I liked: I loved the plot. Two men. One woman. Avalanche. And of course a Christmas angel thrown into the mix.

What I didn’t like: It still would have been a good story without the consummation.

Rating: B+
Buy or Borrow: Buy
Steam: Nothing inappropriate, yet I’d not share with a younger teen.

** Many of the books I review are Advance Review Copies. These books are loaned to me for my review. I am in no way compensated for my time nor am I asked to give anything but my honest review.

  • Ooh, looks interesting. I'll have to take a look and see if this is available on the Kindle. I've gotten totally addicted to reading the sample chapters first.
