On a snowy evening in March, 30-something Noelle Butterby is on her way back from an event at her old college when disaster strikes. With a blizzard closing off roads, she finds herself stranded, alone in her car, without food, drink, or a working charger for her phone. All seems lost until Sam Attwood, a handsome American stranger also trapped in a nearby car, knocks on her window and offers assistance. What follows is eight perfect hours together, until morning arrives and the roads finally clear.

The two strangers part, positive they’ll never see each other again, but fate, it seems, has a different plan. As the two keep serendipitously bumping into one another, they begin to realize that perhaps there truly is no such thing as coincidence.


Another book I grabbed from The Works in their 3 for £5 offer.

It starts with Noelle on her way back from some sort of reunion/time capsule digging up and trying to hurry back home to her sick mum when thick snow rolls in and she gets stranded on the motorway. She's having a bit of a mini meltdown when someone fro the car next to hers - Sam - offers to let her charge her phone and have some company for however long the storm lasts. Several hours later the roads are cleared and they reluctantly part ways, expecting to never see each other again but circumstances keep throwing them together again and again.

I wasn't sure about this one. I liked the idea of it but I didn't feel the spark of their romance or grow to care about any of the characters. I like a bit of emotional angst in my romances and this one was so calm and normal with very little fallout from anything. It was just a tad too boring for me.

I don't think I'll be reading more books by this author.
