“…this book was such a comforting and warm read…”
~ Under the Covers

Lady Sophie Windham is the sensible one of her siblings, the one that they all rely on, However, before all the family Christmas festivities commence Sophie wants a few days to herself, absent of the lovingly applied pressure from her family to be the rock steady member. However, she didn’t expect to be snowed in, looking after an infant with the assistance of a very handsome and kind stranger. But, how well will her handsome helpmate feel when he realizes she isn’t just Sophie, but Lady Sophie Windham, daughter of a powerful duke? However, Sophie isn’t the only one with a secret.

Snowed in at Christmas? Is there anything more cliché during the festive season? Maybe not, but that doesn’t stop me from loving it. Especially when in the artful hands of Grace Burrowes. I’m not normally a fan of Christmas books, they seem to overly idealise the holiday, but this book was such a comforting and warm read, it was inevitable that I would fall in love with it.

Like most Burrowes’ book this isn’t a firework of passion, but rather a slower build as their relationship develops. And, as the romance develops between Vim and Sophie there’s also another character they’re both falling in love with: Kit, the orphaned baby they are both caring for. The whole thing was adorable and moving, as Sophie is convinced that she won’t be able to keep either Kit or Vim, due to their apparent class disparity.

This book had a very strong theme of family. We have Sophie, Vim and Kit forming their own little found family as well as chapters from Sophie’s brothers and parents as they worry over her. I loved seeing the interplay between the Windham brothers, and their clear regard for their sister was lovely; perfect for a holiday themed book.

This was a book showing two very nice people falling in love with one another during the festive season. With the added cuteness of baby Kit, it was a heart-warming read. So, although it felt a little flabby once they leave their snow bound situation, it’s still a great holiday read, and one of my favourites so far from Grace Burrowes
