Chamberlain Ski Resort and Spa
Welcome to the 10th Annual Snow Queen competition!
I can't believe I got roped into this.
Snow Princesses must attend all pageant rehearsals, with appropriate outfits.
Well, no matter what it takes, I'm going to wipe that smirk off Layla Chamberlain's face.
Our rehearsal space can be booked to practice your talent.
Um, does "looking dumb in a dress" count as a talent?
See Grayson Chamberlain, the assistant director, with any questions.
If you insist! First question: How can someone so sweet (and hot!) be a Chamberlain?
Good luck! One of you will soon be our new Snow Queen!
Unless Grayson comes with the tiara . . .
Book Review: Snow Queen by emma Harrison
Snow Queen by Emma Harrison is a fun book about competitions and revenge. This book is so adorable as it recounts a winter beauty pageant, and the main character is quirky and caring. It is pretty clichéd, but that’s part of its charm.
❀ Light and Fluffy
This book tells the story of a Aubrey, who gets roped into competing alongside her friend in a winter pageant. However, once she joins, another competitor is determined to sabotage her, so Aubrey makes it her goal to beat her in the competition as revenge. I enjoyed reading about the competition, as this is something I’ve never really read before. What is interesting is the fact that it is not a traditional beauty pageant, and it features events such as snowsuit contests and hockey. I found the book to be unique, and it is the perfect light and fluffy wintry read.
❀ Enjoyable Main Character
Aubrey is an enjoyable main character, and it was entertaining to read about her passion to get revenge on Layla. She is supportive and a good friend, and I loved how she actually puts effort into the pageant even though it’s not really her thing. Of course, Aubrey is a bit dramatic at times, but that’s what makes her so interesting to read.
Snow Queen by Emma Harrison is a cute and wintry read about a beauty pageant and revenge. I enjoyed the unique concept and the amusing main character. I would recommend this one to those looking for a quick read to get them ready for the holiday season.

I sometimes need cliched. LOL I like to just sit back and enjoy fun stories. I imagine a pageant isn’t all fun and games though. Sounds like one I’d like:)

Same! I really enjoy these fluffy reads over the holidays, for sure. 😉
This sounds like a really fun, wintry read. I like that it’s cliched. Sometimes books like that are so much fun. 🙂 Great review!
I find books like this to be fun, too! Definitely perfect during a stressful time of year. 😉
I haven’t had a lot of luck with my winter reads this year! My first attempt was Snowed In (which I saw on your list), and it didn’t work for me. The girls were obsessed with boyfriends, and I swear the one didn’t even know her boyfriend had a name. I’m also not fond of characters that “fall in love” under shady circumstances. However, Snow Queen sounds like it would be a lot of fun! I love the idea of the pageant having snowsuit and hockey contests — it makes it feel more realistic. Glad you enjoyed this one!

These types of books aren’t for everyone. This one was a lot of fun to read, though. 🙂
This sounds very fun! Ha, I love that hockey is one of the pageant events!
Right?! One of my favourite aspects of it. 😉
I’ve been in the mood for another pageant book after reading and loving The Accidental Beauty Queen last week, so I’m glad I came across your review of Snow Queen because it sounds like so much fun and exactly what I’m looking for. Great review!
