When I added this book to my reading list; the weather outside was a humid 86 degrees. I think I was ready to read about any sort of snowman! While romance novels are not always my go-to books of choice, I do find myself looking for a quick, light reading distraction every now and again. What did I think of The Trouble with Snowmen by Dorlana Vann?
I received a complimentary copy of this book for use in my review. All opinions are my own.
Quick Summary of The Trouble with Snowmen. Snowmen drift into your life like they were sent from above. The relationship is great, rolls right along, and builds. Everything seems perfect … until a little heat is introduced. Then they melt, leaving only their hat, their scarf, something to remind their victims of what they’d lost.
Urban cowgirl Haley Monroe is told that the fabulously hot guy who just dumped her was a snowman. Her friend Maximilian convinces her that the only way she’ll ever stop being played by snowmen is to become one. It takes a lot of drinks to work up the nerve, but Haley gets her sexy on and goes on the prowl. Famous horror author Larry White drops everything to attend a midnight séance at Maximilian’s apartment where he meets Haley. By the way she’s dressed—and just propositioned him—he assumes she’s a hooker. Larry can’t pass up the chance to get inside her head, especially since prostitution is the character’s occupation in his next book.
After spending the weekend together, unexpected sparks surprise both Haley and Larry. The trouble is Haley is dead-set on snowmanning the unkempt “starving artist” she met at the séance, and Larry doesn’t think he could have a real relationship with a woman with a past, so they go their separate ways. The real fun begins when they meet again and find out neither one of them were who they thought they were. Can they reignite the flame? Or will they have a snowman’s chance in hell?
Vann delivers a fun romantic comedy in The Trouble with Snowmen. I found this book to be very entertaining and fun--in part because I think we all know people so much like Vann's characters in our own lives. It was really easy to fall into the story with Haley and Larry and remain with them through to the end.
The Trouble with Snowman is a quick, light reading romance. I tend to read a lot while waiting for my daughters to finish after school activities. This book was quick and easy to read with short passages and light text. I was able to read it in an evening between trips.
Would I recommend The Trouble with Snowmen by Dorlana Vann? This is a cute story with like-able characters and an entertaining storyline. Romantic comedy fans will certainly enjoy the story--although, the story works for anyone seeking a quick love story dotted with smile-inducing scenes.
