While I was on my Christmas kick, I also read Love At First Snow- A Christmas Miracle by Jami Davenport. This was the first book I’ve read by Jami Davenport and I was pleasantly surprised. For a short novella, Love At First Snow was a deep, emotional read.
Overview: (From Goodreads.com because I’m lazy) Christmas is a time for family–if you have a family.
Four years ago on Christmas Eve, NHL hockey player Blake Daniels lost his entire family in a float plane crash. Every Christmas Eve he mourns his losses by returning to the family vacation home in Friday Harbor, Washington, his family’s destination that fateful night. Only this year he’s also mourning the loss of his hockey career and wondering what’s left to live for. When he finds a kitten starving and half frozen in a foot of snow, he rushes the tiny thing to the local animal hospital.
Still reeling from the unexpected loss of her father on Christmas Eve two years ago, Dr. Sarah Whitney opens the door to her clinic and finds a rough and tough professional athlete holding a minuscule kitten in his big hands. Only a miracle can save the frozen creature and only a miracle can heal the devastating losses suffered by both Sarah and Blake.
But Christmas is the time for healing and miracles if you only believe and give love a chance.
My Opinion: As I had said, I was surprised and quite impressed. Love at First Snow was a short read, so I wasn’t expecting anything too Earth shattering good, but wow. Jami Davenport was able to manage what few writers can. She gave her characters a depth and realness in such a short amount of time. I was in tears for both Blake and Sarah. I felt their heartache as if it were my own. I felt the luring pull of Blake for Sarah, wanted to have a drink with him and comfort him too. Haha, I don’t want to give much away, but wow! Wonderful, amazing, heartfelt read!!
I give Love at First Snow by Jami Davenport 5 out of 5 stars. I can’t wait to read more by Jami!
