The weather forecasters said the snowstorm would miss the eastern seaboard. They were wrong. When Ally Henderson’s flight from Southern California to New York City for Christmas gets diverted to the tiny Midwestern town of Bethlehem, she’s desperate to get back in the air and back to the Big Apple. But with all the airports closed, she’s forced to rely on Midwestern hospitality to wait out the storm. And she soon learns that she has a storm of her own to weather. One that could shatter her life.
Living with a kind stranger is one way to spend a snowed-in Christmas, but when she meets the local diner owner, Jake, sparks fly. Only, Ally’s a big-city girl with big-city dreams, and Jake will always be a Bethlehem boy.
The Christmas Layover
Really loved this story and all the meaning behind it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was just so adorable. I totally loved the premise of this story. The back of the book told of a city that opened it's residents' homes to a flight that was diverted during 9/11. I guess I really never stopped to think about situations where planes are diverted to small towns happening. In this story it was due to a snow storm though. I just loved the Christmas themed second chance romance. Both Jake and Ally had a fantastic story. I was able to read it in an afternoon. I really hated to put the e-reader down, it was so enjoyable.
This book was written in a dual POV format. It helps me as a reader to understand the characters' actions so much better. I highly recommend this story to anyone. This is a wonderfully clean Christmas romance that you will want to read over and over. It will play like a movie in your mind.
