Sleigh Bells in the Snow – by Sarah Morgan

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

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 lovely book was recommended to me a great friend. We wanted to do a buddy read, but she couldn’t wait and told me to read it immediately ;) Well, so I did and I am more than happy I did. This book is amazing, you’ll see.

There is Kayla, a total business woman, who only thinks about work, work and work again. Everything about her life is around her job, she never goes out, she doesn’t date and she hates Christmas. Yes, you heard right she doesn’t like this time of the year at all. There is a reason for that of course.

Jackson O’Neil is a successful businessman, who run his own company and now returned to the family business to help get more tourists for Snow Crystal in Vermont.

Kayla seems to be the right person to help and agrees to go there for a week, just before Christmas. Yes, she wants to escape it ;).
When the two of them meet, I already knew, that they were made for each other and couldn’t wait to read how they get closer and whether Jackson could break her shell.

I gotta say, I LOVE Jackson <3 He is just so perfect. Caring, honest, he never gives up and omg he’s soooo hot.

Snow Crystal has many romantic and also adventurous things to offer and Kayla is diving into a whole other world. Sarah Morgan found a great way to describe the surroundings as well as the story brilliantly. It’s so vivid and clear. It makes you want to book holidays at Snow Crystal instantly.
Kayla is getting more and more confused and she just can’t escape Jackson. One thing leads to another and I really love how Sarah described all these scenes. I felt like being there with all the characters and I didn’t want to leave this world again. The romantic scenes were building up and perfectly written, Sarah really has a talent for this.

They story is not only written from Kayla’s perspective, also Jackson get his parts and I think that’s really great. It makes the book special and as a reader you get the emotions and feelings from both of the main characters.

The ending was so wonderful and emotional. It was great to see Kayla change and also confess her personal problems from the past to Jackson. He found a way to reach out to her and make her feel comfortable, although it took her quite a while to get there.

Such an amazing story, with to main characters to fall in love with and a great surrounding. Sarah really understands to write an emotional, interesting and heart-warming story. I couldn’t get enough of it and I’d love to read more about Kayla and Jackson. I’m so excited that there will be more books about the O’Neil brothers, and let me tell you they were great as well.

  2. The tax office then checks whether the rental can still generate a profit. The check is relatively strict: the tax office requires a positive forecast calculation, which must prove that taxable rental surpluses are to be achieved. The guideline here is a period of 30 years in which the holiday home must generate this surplus. vacation rental
