Summary: A Second-chance bride,practical Jenna Walsh has done something impractical. she's met a man on the internet and now, a month before Christmas, she's going to Alaska to marry him. Dalton Gray seems to be everything she wants in a husband -- sensitive, gallant, romantic . . .On the flight to Fairbanks, she has the misfortune to sit beside , who obviously isn't sensitive, gallant, or romantic. However, he's not impressed with her plan t marry Dalton, a man he detests . So Reed takes it upon himself to change her destination -- and her marriage plans.Which is why Jenna ends up at Reid's cabin in tiny Snowbound, Alaska. It's currently a one-woman town (and the other woman's out of town.) That leaves Reid, a bunch of eccentric old men, a few grizzly bears -- and Jenna. Kidnapped! And then there's a blizzard. The two of them alone, stranded in Snowbound . .
My Review: This is another book that took my less than 5 hours to read. I mean come on! It's only 234 pages!! LOL It is a book that had me going "Awww" and "Well, that's just screwed up" and giggling all the way. And , a BIG plus, it's completely "safe". Like you could read this to a 10 year old! I have only read now two books by Debbie but so far I like her better than Nora Roberts. If you want to a snowy, fairy-tale, with lumber-jack men on a rainy day, this is the book for you!
Exert: "Jenna pointed back at the closed curtain.
'My mother went to bed with a total stranger.'
'Pete's a good guy' Reid said.
'He just slept with my mother!'
'I didn't say he was perfect' " - pg. 208
Cover/Title: Cute cover! It kinda makes you think she's lost and kinda let down with her bouquet pointed down, but still love it. And the title? Perfect.
Is there really a Snowbound, AL?
