Snowbound at Christmas by Debbie Mason Review

Snowbound at Christmas
Christmas Colorado #5
By: Debbie Mason  
Releasing September 29, 2015

Surviving the holidays will take a Christmas miracle . . .

Ex-cop Cat O'Connor is bored working for her sister, Chloe, as a personal assistant on the set of her soap opera. Until Chloe gets an opportunity to audition for the role of a lifetime and asks her identical twin to substitute for her on the soap with no one the wiser. It's a perfect switch-until Cat attracts the attention of the mysterious Mr. Tall, Dark, and Way-too-handsome leading man.
Grayson Alexander never thought being snowbound in the charming town of Christmas, Colorado, for the holiday would get so hot. But between working with sexy, tough Cat on set and keeping his real reason for being there under wraps, he's definitely feeling the heat. And if there's one thing they'll learn as they bring out the mistletoe, it's that in this town, true love is always in season.

This is not a book I would normally read, but this has been a week of exciting new books, so I though “what the heck” and I gave it a shot, I struggled with it a few time, but by the end of the book I was glad I read it.

Cat O’Conner hates her job as an assistant to her TV starlet sister Chloe (whom is quite honestly a monster), this was not where she was supposed to be, but after her ex stole people’s money and she lost her job, she really had no other choice.
On the day that she informs her sister that she is done and is going back to their home town, someone tries to kill her sister! But what no one (except her diva sister and BFF TY) knows is that it’s actually Cat in disguised! Now Cat is refusing to go home without her sister and is determined to protect her.

Special Agent Greyson Alexander is going undercover as a British Lord/Actor called Harry in order to protect Chloe O’Conner, from a devious fiend whom is trying to hurt her; His suspicions put Cat firmly onto the very top of his suspects list…until her meets her and she get under skin.

Now Cat and Harry have joined forces to undercover the plot of who is trying to hurt Chloe and why? But that is not the only truth that is discovered! And when everything is out in the open, will anyone’s relationship ever be the same again!
I will be very honest in saying that I found the plot a little confusing at times and the writing a little choppy and to be quite frank, I honestly didn’t like half of the characters at all, even Ty in parts, but putting that aside, the story was an enjoyable read.

I give Snowbound at Christmas 7 out of 10.

Harry drew a bouquet of Tiger Lilies from behind his back and handed them to her. "We seem to have gotten off on the wrong foot, Cat. I was hoping we could start over."
She stared at the extravagant arrangement, then lifted her gaze to his. "For me?"
He smiled. "For you."
"I--I don't know what to say. They're beautiful. Thank you." She meant it. Her ex hadn't been a hearts-and-flowers kind of guy. The last man who'd given her flowers had been her father. They'd arrived the day she made detective. Three weeks later he died.
"My goodness, would you let him in," her sister said, coming up behind Cat. "Sorry, you'll have to excuse my sister's. . . Oh, Harry, they're exquisite. Thank you." Chloe went to take the bouquet from Cat.
She clutched them possessively to her chest. "They're mine." She didn't know what had gotten into her, but she felt like a seven-year-old being asked to share her favorite toy.
Chloe gave a shocked laugh, obviously as surprised by Cat's reaction as she was. "Kit Kat, don't be ridiculous. You're embarrassing your . . . " She tugged on the flowers and Cat tugged back  .
Harry neatly inserted himself between them, ending their silent tug-of-war. With a gallant bow, her handed her sister a single pink sweetheart rose. "For you, Chloe. A perfect flower for a perfect woman."
"Oh, I see. Thank you, Harry. It's . . . lovely. Please, come in. I didn't hear the bell." She shot Cat an accusatory stare. "I was busy getting our dinner ready."
"I can see that. You have a touch of--" Harry leaned in, wiping away the strategically placed white powder--"flour on your cheek. I hope you didn't go to too much trouble on my account."
Her sister was too much, Cat thought with a mental eye roll. Chloe wore a black apron-- with a pink sparkly crown above the word Diva (fitting)--over a flirty pink dress.
She gave Cat a zip-it look as Harry toed off his loafers. Probably worried Cat would spill her secret that the gourmet shop did indeed do takeout. She wouldn't of course. Though, admittedly, she was tempted to.
