So here we go again. Winner of this month is ... Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan.
This time the choice wasn’t difficult at all, because I fell in love with the story, the characters and the writing instantly (although I loved Calling Mrs Christmas by Carole also so much) :

Sleigh Bells in the Snow – Sarah Morgan

The bit on the back:

USA Today bestselling author Sarah Morgan heats up the season with the O'Neil brothers in a brand-new holiday series! 

Once upon a time, Christmas was Kayla Green's favorite time of year. Now all the workaholic wants for Christmas is for it to be over—as fast as possible! So when duty calls her to snowy Vermont to close a deal with a new client, Kayla is grateful for an excuse to avoid the holidays for another year. 

Jackson O'Neil left a thriving business behind to return home and salvage his family's resort—it's in his blood, and he can't let it fail. Now that he's got marketing whiz Kayla Green working with him to put Snow Crystal on the map, success is on the horizon. The fact they strike enough sparks off each other to power all the Christmas lights in Vermont is just an added bonus. 

Kayla might be an expert at her job, but she's out of her depth with Jackson—he makes her crave the happy-ever-after she once dreamed of, and it's terrifying. As the snowflakes continue to swirl, will the woman who doesn't believe in the magic of Christmas finally fall under its spell?

My opinion:

This book was recommeded to me by an amazing friend (thanks Ana). It was on my reading list already, but I wanted to read other books first, but then she convinced me to read it immediately and I am so glad I did. I couldn’t put it down, I dived into the story immediatly and didn’t want to get out of it again. A beautifully written Christmas story, with so much make heart and emotion. Jackson is an amazing main character, I fell for him instantly and also Kayla seemed to be more than attracted to him. I’m so glad he was able to get into her shell and made her experience a new Christmas, with new memories.
I really want to book Snow Crystal holidays right now and experience all these fun and romantic activities.

A definite must-read!!! You’ll miss something if you don’t read it.

The whole review will follow in this year's Christmas special....
