Snowy Fate by Marissa Dobson: Book Spotlight & Review

Romance lovers get ready...this short story is a must-read if you love this genre, you won't be disappointed!  Sizzling PR is hosting this tour and I am delighted to have a spot!

About the Short Story:

Fate always knows when you're ready for love.

The past is catching up with Aspyn Layton. The father she never knew passed away and she is left to deal with his estate. An unexpected snowstorm has her stranded at the one place she didn’t want to be—her father’s house—with a naked man.

Damon Andrews has a secret, one he shared with Aspyn’s father. He must convince Aspyn there is more to life then what she knows. How will she react when she finds out he is a mountain lion, and she is his mate? Their fates are intertwined.

About the Author:

Born and raised in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, I now reside about an hour from Washington, D.C. I am a lady who likes to keep busy, and am always busy doing something. With two different college degrees, I believe you are never done learning.

Being the first daughter to an avid reader, this gave me the advantage of learning to read at a young age. Since learning to read I have always had my nose in a book. It wasn't until I was a teenager that I started writing down the stories I came up with.

I am blessed with a wonderful supportive husband, Thomas. He is my other half and allows me to stay home and pursue my writing. My writing buddies Max (a cocker spaniel) and Dawne (a beagle mix) are always around to listen to me bounce ideas off them. They might not be able to answer, but they are helpful in their own ways.

My Thoughts:

Many of the commentary regarding Snowy Fate states that it was too short but if you go into it acknowledging that it is a novella or a short story then that eliminates any disappointment.  I thought for a short story, which I usually don't like because I am more of a full length novel kind of person, this was great!

I enjoy a good romance novel from time-to-time and this one hit the spot.  I like this author and I like her writing, it is simple, clear and to-the-point.  So much so that I would really like to read something longer by her, I bet it is great!

This is a classic romance story with all of the usual elements but it was well-worth the read and something that I would highly recommend to other readers.  Quick and a great short story to fill in the holes between novels.
