USA Today bestselling author Sarah Morgan heats up the season with the O'Neil brothers in a brand-new holiday series!

Once upon a time, Christmas was Kayla Green's favorite time of year. Now all the workaholic wants for Christmas is for it to be over—as fast as possible! So when duty calls her to snowy Vermont to close a deal with a new client, Kayla is grateful for an excuse to avoid the holidays for another year.

Jackson O'Neil left a thriving business behind to return home and salvage his family's resort—it's in his blood, and he can't let it fail. Now that he's got marketing whiz Kayla Green working with him to put Snow Crystal on the map, success is on the horizon. The fact they strike enough sparks off each other to power all the Christmas lights in Vermont is just an added bonus.

Kayla might be an expert at her job, but she's out of her depth with Jackson—he makes her crave the happy-ever-after she once dreamed of, and it's terrifying. As the snowflakes continue to swirl, will the woman who doesn't believe in the magic of Christmas finally fall under its spell?

Sleigh Bells in the Snow was such a holiday treat! Sarah Morgan does a fantastic job setting a beautiful winter wonderland in Snow Crystal. Between the cozy cabins, to the snowy landscape, it’s just wonderful. Then there’s the skiing, the skating, the sledding…I seriously wanted to spend my time there, like, now!

I found Kayla an amusing heroine, but there were times when I wanted to shake her. When she was relaxed and cracking jokes she was lovely, but when she would crawl back into herself she drove me nuts. Jackson quickly learns how to handle Kayla and those moments were really sweet…then later really steamy!! It is a slow build, not the attraction but the getting down to it. I appreciated it, but I must admit I was close to yelling “Kiss her/him already!” when they finally did, lol. Definitely worth the wait. :)

We also get to know Jackson’s family, the O’Neils. They were a fun bunch. And some of the resort staff, a.k.a. future books love interests along with Jackson’s brothers, also make an appearance and I liked them, so I’m really looking forward to their books.

Sarah Morgan’s Sleigh Bells in the Snow will certainly put you in the holiday spirit and make you yearn for many things. Get yourself a cup of hot chocolate and cozy up with his fun read. :)

    Hi Jess, thank you so much for having me here and for taking the time to read and review Sleigh Bells in the Snow. So glad you enjoyed it :)

  2. julie barrett

    Have yet to read this new author to me but the books sound like one I’d enjoy. Trying to devote more time to reading/reviewing new authors seems i get in a rut and read same authors every month. Thanks for the chance,
    Julie

    I’m anxious to see how the attraction and tension between Jackson and Kayla finally comes to a head.

    I think the setting of being away from regular life–the cabins and fun winter activities.

      I’m a great fan of the Christmas romances and of Sarah Morgan, so this sounds like a winning combination. My favourite Christmas is an “old” category, Kathleen Creighton’s A CHRISTMAS KNIGHT. It’s wonderful and there’s definite “snowed-in” element, except the hero and heroine are stuck in a semi on a highway in a blizzard … and she’s near her due date!

    I love reading holiday romances, they really get me into the spirit of the holiday season. Can’t wait to read Sleigh Bells in the Snow, it sounds like a fun read!

    I’m most looking forward to just reading this book. I love romance books set at Christmas!

    It is a Christmas book! I do want to escape the summer/autumn theme and go into the holiday theme of Christmas. It is usually more romantic and sweeter
