"A Snowflake's Chance in Hell" by Amy Romine

Author's Book Description : Two hearts drawn by hope, linked by love.

All Quinn Lawson wanted was to find her brother. Separated after their parents perished in a drunk-driving accident, Quinn has been searching for him since she became eighteen. She is closer now than ever, but it is her last lead.

Gunnery Sergeant Kevin McCaluson has a choice to make, stay in the military or step away and try life as a civilian. With no family and no prospect of one, Kevin wonders if he can leave the only family he has ever known for the life he’s always dreamed.

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, a woman (Quinn) who's on a search to find her long lost younger brother unintentionally recruits Marine Gunnery Sergeant to help her out right before Christmas.

While I found this novella to be very sweet, had fallen a little for Kevin (Gunney) myself, and liked the idea of its plot, this novella didn't keep my attention that well. Yet as a plowed through it, I can definitely say that it has a magical quality to its plot that makes you wish some of that magic could happen for you too.

I recommend this novella who are looking to read about a contemporary holiday romance filled with magic!

Author's Novel Extras :

Book Teaser(s) :
Quinn searched for the lipstick in her purse and pulled down the passenger mirror. To her horror, her long brown hair was a tangled mess, and she hurriedly combed it with her fingers.
“You look fine.” His reassurance came with a stunning grin that made her eyes roll.
“This coming from the Captain America,” she hesitated once the comment left her lips, but the amusement on his face left her in the clear. He parked and they both exited the truck.
He escorted her to the main entrance of the hospital. “I prefer Daredevil.”
“Isn’t that the superhero Ben Affleck managed to singlehandedly torpedo into the beyond?” He stayed close to her when they joined the crowded lobby of the facility.
“I don’t know to what you are referring.” His hand descended on hers, guiding her to the opposite side of the lobby. They came to an elevator and stopped. The surrounding crowd grew louder by the minute and Quinn stepped closer.
“I believe they call that selective amnesia.” He looked down at her with a sideways grin, his green eyes once again freezing her in place.
“Do they?”
“Yes, they say the conscious brain uses it as a form of protection, blocking out those instances that are too traumatic to process. If you are truly a Daredevil fan, I can completely understand the condition. The same type of thing happened to me with the short lived Charlie’s Angel’s remake.” ~ within Chapter 2
