Review: Snowball's Christmas by Kristen McKanagh

Snowball—an aptly named bundle of feline fluff—is thankful to be spending her first Christmas in the comfort of Weber Haus, the Victorian B&B run by Miss Tilly. Emily Diemer, who cooks for the guests, dotes on Snowball, but she’s not thrilled about another new arrival at the B&B: Miss Tilly’s nephew, Lukas. Which is odd, because Snowball’s animal instincts tell her that Lukas and Emily should definitely be friends.
Everything Emily needs is in this quaint community—including, she hopes, the chance to open her own bakery one day. She doesn’t think much of Lukas for leaving his aging aunt to struggle while he jets around the world taking photographs. But now that he’s here, helping to spruce up the property and getting mixed up in Snowball’s antics, she begins to soften a little. Until she learns what he has planned . . .
Lukas is going to sell Weber Haus so that Miss Tilly can retire. But Snowball is certain that this B&B, and these people, are supposed to be her forever home. Somehow she has to get these stubborn humans to see things through the wisdom of a cat’s eye and a kitten’s loyal, loving heart . . .


My Review:

A fun Christmas romance.

Snowball is a cute, but mischievous, kitten who knows what she wants and won't settle for less.  So, when she decides Emily Diemer and Lukas Weber belong together, she does everything she can to make it happen. 

Lukas has returned to Weber Haus, the B&B where his Aunt Tilly raised him, for the first Christmas in years.  As a professional photographer, he was usually traveling all year long. This year he wanted to be home with his aunt.  Little did he realize meeting Emily, who makes the fabulous meals at the B&B, would change his life.

Emily has one goal and it's to own her own bakery.  She works hard at the B&B while planning her future.  Lukas is a distraction she doesn't need.  But as they work together, and the romance grows between them, it leaves Emily more confused.  She doesn't want to fall for Lukas knowing he will soon be leaving.  With the help of Snowball and a Christmas miracle, they just might get their happily ever after.

If Snowball has her way, she will have Lukas and Emily paired up b Christmas. All Snowball wants is a happy family with Lukas, Emily and Tilly.

This was such a cute story.  I couldn't get enough of it.  I especially liked how Snowball would fend off the advances one man made on Emily so she would end up with Lukas.   I hope we will be seeing more of Snowball and her silly antics in the future. 

Thank you to Kensington Books and NetGalley for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
