My Review

Dashing Through the Snow was a cute Christmas time story, more of an ABC Christmas movie than Hallmark (trust me I know my Christmas movies and movie channels). I enjoyed the baking, holiday spirit, family, and friendship.

I love a good Christmas story, but this one didn't quite meet all of my expectations. It wasn't quite everything that I had been led to think it would be.

This book is very light with little depth. It's based on misunderstandings and lack of communication. I liked that Zane and Wynn had known each other for five years - their friendship with attraction was so cute! I would have liked a little more of an ending, though.

I was kind of surprised at the use of quite a few bad words and drinking. I wasn't expecting that, and it wasn't necessary. I know people say bad words sometimes, but it wasn't needed for this book. Other than that, it was pretty much clean, though.

Overall, this was a short, light Christmas story. It wasn't a favorite, but it was cute.

Also, I loved the cover! It just didn't really match up to the story, which was kind of disappointing because I thought it was really cute:(

I received this book in exchange of an honest review. This in no way affected my opinions, and all thoughts and opinions are solely my own.
