I finished the first book in this series not long ago and it was an absolutely entertaining read and set my expectations quite high for this installment. I love the town of Christmas, Colorado and its colorful, funny, nosy and generally friendly inhabitants. Catching up with the lives of characters from previous books was fun, but this story has its own fair share of fun and likable characters.
After the painful loss of her job, Cat O’Connor took on the role of personal assistant and all-round gopher to her actress twin sister but lacking the challenge she needs, Cat is about to quit, until the accidents begin to happen and it becomes clear to her that her sister's life is in danger. Now Cat has to put her plans on hold until the person responsible is caught.
FBI agent Grayson Alexander is undercover as British royalty and an actor on the set of Cat's sister's movie, expecting to spend a few days investigating the threats to Chloe's life and then continuing with his postponed vacation plans , but nothing is going according to plan. Faced with high maintenance stars, his difficult grandmother and an investigation that's not yielding any information, the only bright light for Grayson is Cat. Cat is feisty, tough, loyal and gorgeous to look at and he falls hard for her. Too bad, because Grayson has to maintain his cover and pretend to be attracted to Chloe in order to find the bad guy.
Grayson is attractive and his accent puts him in very hot territory but he's also sweet and thoughtful but my favorite character is Ty. His antics and nicknames for everyone were too funny.
Chloe is a real piece of work. Overly dramatic and an attention-seeker, she was loath to share the spotlight with anyone, not her co-stars and most definitely not her twin. I'm not sure that I have ever disliked a book character more than I did her and I'm almost feeling sorry for the poor guy who'll take her on. In fact, I felt that Cat had given her one too many chances and really wished she had stood up for herself early enough, but then again, their bond as twins meant that Cat would always be there for her.
With all the accidents on set, the decision is made to continue shooting at the girls' hometown of Christmas, just in time for the holiday season and Cat hopes that the extra hands and eyes back home would help keep Chloe safe. Well, Christmas is the perfect location for the capers and chaos that ensure and the result is so many funny moments, it's hard to even pick a favorite. And the season provides the perfect backdrop for romance - snowy days and warm nights by the fire.
SNOWBOUND AT CHRISTMAS was so much fun to read and even though it was not my favorite of the series, it is still a great addition.
