BLOG TOUR: Snowed Over – Angie Stanton + Review & giveaway

Released: October 12th, 2013

To college student, Katie Brandt, ‘Home for the Holidays’ sounds like hell. When her parents separated, their holiday traditions shattered like a dropped ornament. What could be worse than celebrating Christmas with her suddenly single mom and mom’s new boyfriend?

Alex Walker, an engaged 20-year-old, dreads going home for his own reasons. He has a daunting task ahead of him and wishes he could skip the holidays altogether. So when a friend of a friend needs a ride north, Alex finds that having beautiful Katie seated by his side proves to be just the distraction he needs. 

A simple ride home for Christmas turns into a nightmare when light snow rages into a full-scale blizzard. Katie and Alex find themselves stranded, and a vacant cabin becomes a haven from the storm. 
Under different circumstances, time alone with Alex would be the ultimate Christmas gift, but Katie knows Alex is engaged and she must hide her growing attraction.

However, Alex harbors a secret that just might change this holiday from the worst Christmas ever, to the best.

"This is one of the coolest Christmases I've ever had."
An adorable sweet novel about finding love in the strangest and most unexpected of times (and situation). Snowed Over focused on making a fast-paced romance about the magic and true joys of Christmas. A delightful read!

This book was absolutely adorable and it was just the story to put me into a snug Christmas mood.

Katie thought that her Christmas was going to be hell, spending it with her mom and her Not The Boyfriend. Her mom was her usual self, protective, but then the fact that she was wearing tighter clothing didn't escape Katie. So when she got stranded with a stranger who was supposed to take her there safely, she thought that her Christmas just got worse.

Until she realized that it was actually one of the best ones she's ever had.

Alex is an extremely thoughtful and considerate man. I adored his character so much in the book and not only because he was honest, but because he was the kind of man I really want. He put Katie first above all others when it came to her comfort.
Alex: "I'll get more wood in a few minutes."
Katie: "I can fetch some now."
Alex: "No, you need to get warm. You're shivering."
He was just the cutest little thing.

But, anyway, I like how the author didn't rush the ending (like them getting married or him proposing THANK GOD).

Minor Faults:
  • The way Katie is so selfish around her mom, even though her mom was selfish as well
  • Some characters were a bit too overdramatized

Angie Stanton never planned on writing books, she wanted to be a Rockette. However, growing up in a rural setting with her brothers' 4-H pigs as pets, dance didn't work out. Instead she became an avid daydreamer. After years of perfecting stories in her head she began to write them down and the rest is history.

She loves dipping french fries in chocolate shakes, natural disaster movies and Broadway Musicals. When not writing, Angie is concocting ways to make more dreams come true, whether it be tickets to a Broadway show or convincing her family they should rent an RV and travel the country. She's still working on that one.
Angie is a proud double finalist of the 2011 National Readers Choice Awards for Love 'em or Leave 'em, as well as a finalist for the Golden Quill Awards.
