Review: Stealing Kisses in the Snow by Jo McNally

Single mom Piper Montgomery’s plate is full. Between her two adorable kids, two jobs and a fixer-upper house, she’s so busy she can hardly see straight. But when rugged biker Logan Taggart strolls into the inn where she’s working, she can’t help but stare. He has bad boy written all over him. And with two kids relying on her, that’s the last thing she needs this Christmas.

Rendezvous Falls is nothing but a pit stop for Logan. Once his grandmother is back on her feet and ready to reclaim the inn, Logan can get back on the road. It’s where he belongs, even if his grandmother’s matchmaking book club try to convince him otherwise. Still, there’s something about beautiful spitfire Piper that makes him wonder if family and forever might just be what he needs after all.

But as the holidays draw ever closer, so do Piper and Logan. Could these polar opposites find that all they want this Christmas is each other?
I'm going to let you in on a little secret, I really enjoyed this book much better than I did the first book in the series. I'm not totally sure why. She's a new author to me so maybe I had to get used to the way she writes. All I know is that I liked these characters more and the writing flowed much more quickly in this one. 

I'm so glad that I decided to try the next book in the series. And this is why when I like a book even with its flaws I know to try the author again. 

I really loved both Piper and Logan. Both in their own ways are very hard working. Logan's life is much more different than Piper's. He's always moving around not collecting dust. Something he learned from his father. But when his grandmother needed him he was there. You've got to love that in a hero. Even though he's a rolling stone he really is a hard worker. 

What I loved about this story is I think Logan really gave her the push she needed to stand up to her mother-in-law. I'm not saying that Piper is a pushover, it's just sometimes for the sake of peace you give in to things you shouldn't. Her mother-in-law is a piece of work. The woman drove me crazy. 

I liked how we saw how hard Piper's son was dealing with life's changes. It's not easy losing a parent then moving into a new home. Sometimes you need someone that loves you to tell you that you are acting like an ass. 

I found it funny that Logan who's a rolling stone found it easier to fall in love and decide to stay in one place than Piper did. She fought till the very end before letting herself believe that she could be happy again. 

This is a wonderful story with a very charming Christmas theme. It really set me up for wanting more of this town and this author. I can't wait to see what she has next. I also want to say that the character's names made me wonder is the author was giving a nod to Jude Deveraux.  

Has any of you read Jo McNally? If so, what's your favorite book or series by her?
