Snow-Kissed Proposals by Jenni Fletcher & Elisabeth Hobbes

Snow-Kissed Proposals by Jenni Fletcher & Elisabeth Hobbes* is a collection of two short stories happening at Christmas-time in the Victorian age. The stories are not related to each other. First is The Christmas Runaway by Jenni Fletcher, followed by Their Snowbound Reunion by Elisabeth Hobbes. I will avoid talking too much about the particular stories because of their short length I wouldn’t want to give away any spoilers. I enjoyed both stories and gave them both 5 stars.

The Christmas Runaway is the story of an independent heiress Fiona MacKay, who runs away to her friend living in a remote Scottish tower. There she meets her friend’s brother, Angus Drummond, who has a whisky business. It can’t get more Scottish than that. I liked how the story progressed and how their love story developed. It felt natural, which made it beautiful. There are two additional sub-plots, but they do not deter from the protagonists at all.

In Their Snowbound Reunion, Amy Munroe and Anthony Matthews meet again after fifteen years. Amy becomes Anthony’s new housekeeper after her husband’s death. He is a widower too and has two children. This story too progresses naturally and I enjoyed it a lot. The children appear throughout the story, but not in a way that would make it too much about them, which can happen. The hero and the heroine have a past and I liked how their previous marriages were presented.

Overall this is a lovely book to read over Christmas and it makes a great gift too, for someone who likes romance novels.

  • This sounds lovely for the festive season. The first story being set in atmospheric Scotland sounds perfect and the family dynamic of the second sounds intriguing. I’ve been looking for some more historical romance recommendations, so might have to check this collection out. 🙂 xx

    • Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like the book if you decide you want to read it. 🙂

  • I haven’t read a M&B or Harlequin book for ages now. Although not a style of writing I am too fond of, they do make a nice, easy reading break every now and again. I don’t need any Christmas stories right now, but by coincidence, Cath from the ‘Read-Warbler’ Blog, mentioned that she is taking part in a Christmas reading challenge, so I sent her across a link to see if this one might interest her. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend. Stay safe and don’t get blown away! 🙂
