It’s been four years since Megan left her fiancĂ© Isaac, at the altar.  So, going home for Christmas is the last thing she wants to do.  But when Megan bumps into Christian in a pub in Dublin, they decide to be each other’s fake dates for each other’s Christmas family events.  With a mix of family, friends and running into old flames this Christmas will be everything unexpected.  And when the snow starts and doesn’t stop anytime soon, getting snowed in is exactly what they don’t need or is it?

Snowed In written by author Catherine Walsh is a wonderful Christmas rom-com.  This wonderful heartwarming story captured my attention from the very first page.  I loved the characters and the banter within the families had me laughing out loud.  The chemistry between the main characters was felt throughout the story.  I loved the Christmas escape to Dublin, Ireland.  I could feel the cold air on my face as I walked through the quaint little village admiring the twinkling lights.  If you are looking for a great book to launch you into the Christmas season, this is style one.  My suggestion is to brew the hot cocoa, grab your favorite blanket, curl up by the fire and read this fantastic story.  I loved it and I definitely recommend it.

Megan is dreading going home for the holidays. She’s the village pariah, the she-devil who left local golden boy Isaac at the altar four years ago and ran away to the big city. She could really do without the drama. Particularly as he’s engaged again, and she’s just been dumped for the fourth time this year.

Christian’s fed up of being on his own every Christmas. He doesn’t mind being alone, but he hates his family’s sad eyes and soft tones as they sit around coupled up. Because he’s actually, totally, fine.

So when Megan literally bumps into Christian in a Dublin pub, they come up with a pact to see them through the holiday season. 
They’re going to be the very best fake dates for each other, ever.

Rules are drawn up, a contract is signed on a wine-stained napkin. They will sit through each other’s family gatherings and be outrageously in love until freed from their annual obligations. After all, it’s only for a few weeks.

But with everyone home for the holidays, two big families to deal with alongside old friends, old flames and old feelings, things are bound to get messy. And when a snowed-in cabin and a little Christmas magic are added to the mix, anything could happen…


Catherine Walsh was born and raised in Ireland. She has a degree in Popular Literature and the only prize she ever won for writing was at the age of 14 in school (but she still cherishes it.) 

She lived in London for a few years where she worked in Publishing and the non-profit sector before returning to Dublin where she now lives between the mountains and the sea. When not writing she is trying and failing to not kill her houseplants.
