Lexi Anderson is an up-and-coming, Martha Stewart-type TV hostess whose two kids love the Jared Strong adventure novels, which happen to be written by their new neighbor, Kyle Miller.

For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer’s block--until he sees the snowman on his lawn and he realizes this is the perfect place for his villain to hide the weapon. He digs into the snowman to discover two things: the weapon fits in the body just under the head, and the snowman was supposed to be the back drop for Lexi’s next show.
From this improbable beginning comes friendship. Can there be more for a woman who is afraid to get close again and a man who has shadows from his childhood?

Families join together and hearts are healed as this couple goes walking in a winter wonderland.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Holiday Read! For such a short novella, this book definitely surprised me with just how much I ended up loving the cute Christmas story within it's pages. Lexi is a divorced mother of two who has a "Martha Stewart" type show on TV. Her neighbor is a Scrooge who doesn't want anything to do with the holidays, or much of anything for that matter. Their personalities instantly clash, but both might just realize that there is chemistry between them that neither one could ever have predicted, and this might just turn out to be the best Christmas that either of them could have ever asked for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, fun Christmas story Lexi is divorced with two children and has a decorating show on TV.  She buys a house on Christmas Street and moves in just before Christmas.  Lexi immediately decorates for the holiday, both inside and out.  One of her decorations is a snowman which she builds on the property line between her and her new neighbor.  Kyle is a famous author and her neighbor.  Lexi first meets him when he is taking the head off her snowman, but she doesn't know who he is - just a snowman murderer.  Kyle is pretty grumpy and doesn't like Christmas - or almost anything. Kyle's brothers remind him that it is his turn to host their family Christmas but he says he can't because he is on a deadline. This is a very difficult time of year for Kyle's family because their mother passed away on Christmas Eve over twenty years earlier. Finally, Lexi and Kyle meet for real and Lexi makes a deal with Kyle that if he will go to her son's birthday party, she will handle all the Christmas decorating and meals for Kyle's family's Christmas festivities. I loved this book and didn't want to put down. I thought the writing was really good and the characters were wonderfully written.  Even though Kyle wasn't likable at the beginning, he turned out to be a good guy.  Even Lexi loosened up as the story progressed.  The author did a great job with having a lot happen in such a short story and a short time frame.  This was a great, quick Christmas read and I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bah review This book has elements of humor, love, family, sadness and Christmas cheer. A lot of elements for a short book but none the less well balanced. I really enjoyed this one! I recommend this for anyone looking for a light Christmas read.
