Season’s Meetings, by Amy Dunne (2014)

(nb: I received a review copy of this title from the publisher via NetGalley)

Catherine is a type AAAAAAAAAAA (read that, extremely type A), and she hates Christmas. When her boss suddenly demands Catherine’s underlings turn in reports just before Christmas or lose their jobs, Cat takes it upon herself to do all the reports herself. This means she misses out on her flight to Scotland, where she was to spend Christmas with her best friend and her partner.

The weather forecast is dire, and the only option left for Cat to get from London to Scotland is riding with her best friend’s cousin, Holly. There are instant sparks between the two, as they drive through the rapidly declining weather. Things get so dire, that they make a pact: if they survive the blizzard, they’ll make it a Christmas to remember.

Before long, the two are finding just how physically compatible they are, and how much joy they bring to one another’s lives. They’re falling in love. There’s just one problem…an old promise that could ruin everything.

Amy Dunne’s “Season’s Meetings” is a fun, easy read, perfect for this hectic time of year. I loved vivacious Holly from the very beginning, and it was wonderful to see how she gradually draws Catherine out from her self-protective shell (she’d been hurt before). Add in a special Cairn Terrier named Kimmie, and you have a perfect little family…except for that promise.

There’s nothing in “Season’s Meetings” that should surprise anyone. But it’s Christmas. There’s nothing wrong with a little steamy sex and some joyful tears to make the holidaze (sic) a little more bearable.

B.A. in Literature, Minor in Film Theory and Criticism, thus meaning all I’m trained is to write blog posts here. Neptune is my favorite planet–it vents methane into the solar system like my brother does. I think Chicken McNuggets look like Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Indiana. There are times when I’m medicated, which is why I wrote about McNuggets. Buy some today and tell me I’m wrong! Anyway, Beyond that: mammal, Floridian, biped.Good Night, and Good Luck. Besos, tom
