Author: Rachel Hawthorne
Publication Date: November 27, 2008
Summary (from Goodreads):
Well, apparently I live here now, my mom just bought the place. And named it after me, Ashleigh, which was nice. But did she know how cold it is here??
Um, it’s a tiny island with not much to do, unless you really like sleigh rides. But I gotta say there are quite a few hot guys on this cold island . . .
If you’re looking for the perfect read to curl up by the fire with this winter, Snowed In is the perfect book for you! This wintry book takes place on a perfect island and the main character is so sweet. This book is so cute and pretty short.
Snowed In is short and sweet, what I would consider pure fluff. This story is about a girl who moves to a small island with her mom and the adventures she has along the way. There are plenty of cheesy moments in the book, but they actually work well with the story and aren’t unpleasant at all. This is also such a quick read that I was able to read in one sitting.
I loved the small island setting in the story! Everyone is friends with one another and there are less than 10 kids per grade in the school. Since it is set in the winter, there are also romantic sleigh rides and cross-country skiing described in the book that made me smile. The main character owns her own bed and breakfast, and that is honestly a dream for me. This whole book just gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling.
I liked Ashleigh as a character. She is very considerate and thinks of how her actions will affect others before carrying them out. She has a good sense of humour and such a fun personality. I also found Ashleigh to be relatable since she is definitely not a morning and can’t go without a cup of coffee. Her last name, Sneaux, is also, while cheesy, super festive, which I enjoyed.
Snowed In is a wintry book set on a small island during the winter. I enjoyed the main character and her sweet personality. I would definitely recommend this as it is such a cute and quick read!
