synopsis 2.0

One small town. One hot neighbor. One second chance at love.

The best fake snow decorations in L.A.? Done by me.

About to get a promotion? Also me.

Sent to a sleepy small town right before Christmas to save a bookstore? Unfortunately, me again.

Old Pine Cove was the one place on earth I had sworn I’d never return to. Then my boss asked me to manage one of our bookstores there. I wanted to tell her no way, but that would definitely lower my chances of being promoted once I returned to L.A. So I sucked it up. Besides, it was only supposed to be temporary. What could possibly go wrong?

Gosh, how naïve of me.

Alex Denverton opening the door with that smoldering look of his, that’s what went wrong. It had been ten years since I crashed his truck and made a run for it. And now he was back in my life. How was I supposed to focus on work knowing he was right next door? And why did I ever agree to organize the annual Winter Walk with him?

One thing was certain, though. If I wanted to have a magical Christmas, I couldn’t ask Santa to make it happen. It was up to me to decide: go big or go home.

Snowflakes and Sparks is a standalone, small town romcom in the Old Pine Cove series.




review 2.0

Books, Snow Globes, Holiday fun in a small town and a Hot Neighbor to top it off; Snowflakes and Sparks has it all to make it a Hallmark movie!

Suzie and Alex’s story was funny, cute and filled with lots of holiday cheer.

After an embarrassing incident 10 years ago Suzie is back in Old Pine Cove to manage their bookstore. While she silently hopes Alex no longer lives there and the townies no longer remember her, that isn’t the case of course. Turns out Alex is the lucky guy Suzie gets to live next to while she’s in town and he remembers everything about their time together 10 years ago.

Needless to say it doesn’t take long for old feelings to come back up. Suzie however has a ton of work on her hands with the store, drama & the towns Christmas festival besides figuring out her feelings for Alex. She’s cut short on time and has to find a way to manage it all.

It has the perfect amount of romance, some small town drama and comedy. If you love a good Christmas read Snowflakes and Sparks is it.

It’s A Sweet Christmas story attached to a second chance romance is all you need to get you into the holiday feels!
