Worst. Day. Ever. After Lyssa Barnett’s sister tricks her into reprising her role at Snowflake Valley’s annual children’s party, she doesn’t think anything can be worse than squeezing into her too-small elf costume. Then tall, dark, and way too handsome Nick Tavlock shows up to play Santa…and an unexpected storm leaves them snowbound in the isolated lodge.
The last thing Nick wants is to spend a cozy Christmas Eve with a trio of kids and the woman who dumped him. But as much as Lyssa frustrates him, he can’t stop thinking about her. And soon, he’s fighting very un-Santa-like thoughts of kissing a certain sexy Miss Elf under the mistletoe. As Nick starts to fall for Lyssa all over again, he knows it will take nothing short of a miracle to have Lyssa in his arms on Christmas
Snowbound with Mr. Wrong by Barbara White Daille is a short but fun Christmas story.
Nick is a hard working, but money orientated man (according to Lyssa). He puts the job before everything; he doesn’t take holidays, and he certainly doesn’t want to be stuck in a small town. Coming from a wealthy but cold background, it’s the only life he knows. Nick shows his affections with lavish gifts and fancy restaurants,
Lyssa is also a hard working character. She’s come from a family that helps each other, and after her mom got sick, Lyssa steps up and runs the home for the family. She takes that into her adult life and works hard to make a success of her business.
Nick and Lyssa were a couple, but things ended when Nick made it clear that he thought Lyssa could do better, aim higher, and get out of the small town that she has always lived in. But both never expected to be thrown together over the festive season.
Lyssa promised her sister to help give gifts to the kids in the town, so again she dons the elf costume and prepares to help Santa spread a little cheer, that is until she realizes who is playing Santa again this year. And Nick isn’t too keen on getting his heart stamped on again. So their first meeting after their break up is a frosty one.
A snow storm traps Lyssa and Nick in the lodge that held the Christmas party. (Lyssa stayed behind to clear up, and Nick couldn’t get a ride down the mountain) and a trio of kids complete the trapped couple.
After trying and failing to get off the mountain, they return to the lodge and wait to be rescued. After clearing the air between them, will they get their wishes and get their happy ending ?
It’s a fun short read, full of laughter and Christmas spirit
