Florand takes us to a snow-kissed Christmas cabin for this heart-wrenching tale of love, loss, forgiveness—and hope. After the utter destruction of her marriage and her happiness, Kai knew it was better to shut herself away from the world than to hurt and be hurt. Holed up in her mountain cabin, she planned to spend her Christmas alone. Until her not-quite-ex-husband shows up as the first flakes start to fall. Now should she send him back out into the cold? Or can she be brave enough to let this winter snow bind them back together?
The thing about short stories is that they can sometimes be too short. They can be great quick reads that need no additional story lines but then sometimes you read one of those short stories where you know it could be so much more. Although, Snow-Kissed had a touching story I think it could have been much more powerful if it would have been a full length book.
Kai and Kurt have been separated for a while. They haven’t divorced but after a traumatic loss Kai feels like everything is over. She thinks Kurt deserves more in his life. Kurt on the other hand has been waiting for the day that Kai would come back to him. Both are miserable and working on getting past the losses they have experienced. When they are snowed in at Kurt’s mothers cabin they are forced to come together once more and possibly help heal their damaged marriage.
Snow-Kissed could have made me an emotional mess. Kai and Kurts story was a sad and beautiful one but I feel like everything happened so fast (which is normal of a short story) and it didn’t hit me as much as it could have. I enjoyed Snow-Kissed but wished Kai and Kurts story would have been longer with more information on how they were before and during the loss and a little more time reading about their healing.
