Mistletoe Between Friends / The Snowflake InnMistletoe Between Friends / The Snowflake Inn by Samantha Chase

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The gift that keeps on giving. That is my catch phrase for any Samantha Chase novel. Whether in print, digital or reissue this author never disappoints. I'm as hooked on these stories now as I was the very first time I read them. Keeps getting better with time.

Mistletoe Between Friends - Cam can rival encyclopedias with his intellectual skills, but his awkward choice of topics can put the kibosh on romance faster than a match can spark a flame. Lily has a flair for the dramatic, her hobbies are interesting and career choices creative. Her flights of fancy, keep her lonely and leave her family questioning her sanity. Take two clueless friends, mix in a couple of matchmaking parents and you have cozy, funny and enchanting. Mistletoe Between Friends is the perfect read for anytime of the year, because it warms from the inside out.

The Snowflake Inn - Riley and Grace prove nothing is impossible. If the heart is open and the mind is willing to takes a risk. Hope comes in the form of The Snowflake Inn to a broken hearted dreamer and a frustrated businessman.

Snowflake Inn:

Mistletoe Between Friends:


Grace didn’t even pretend to be cordial. She went about clearing away the dishes and putting them in the dishwasher before putting the leftover food in the refrigerator. Riley sat in his seat and watched her every move. She wanted to scream for him to leave but instead she used every ounce of her self-control to just keep doing what she was doing and pretending that he wasn’t there.
“It’s killing you that I’m still here, isn’t it?” he finally said, and she nearly jumped out of her own skin.
“Sheesh, you scared me,” she said, willing her rapidly beating heart to calm down. “Actually I had forgotten that you were even here. Which leads me to ask - why are you still here?”
“Where should I go?”
There was a loaded question if she ever heard one. She must have smirked because she heard Riley laugh. “Something funny?” she asked.
“You,” he said simply. “Your face is an open book. There’s no way you could possibly play poker.”
“My face is not an open book,” she snapped. “You don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Oh, really? You’re going to stand here and tell me that you weren’t just thinking of a colorful retort to my question of where I should go? That you weren’t dying to tell me exactly where you thought I should go?”
There was no way to hide her guilty blush. Dammit. “Fine,” she said defensively. “You’re right; I was thinking of several options of where you should go, but I decided to keep that to myself. Things are awkward enough around here today without me adding to them.”
“Give it your best shot, Red,” he said, leaning back in his chair and crossing his arms across his chest.
“Excuse me?”
“Go ahead and tell me what’s on your mind. I prefer it when people are honest. I don’t like to play games. If you have something to say to me, then go ahead and say it.”
“It’s not necessary, Riley,” Grace said as she busied herself around the kitchen. She placed the last of the leftovers in the refrigerator and turned around. And screamed. “Seriously?” she cried. “How did you move that fast?” He was right behind her and she had to press her back against the refrigerator door to keep an inch of space between them.
“Military trick. Can’t let the enemy know when you’re approaching.”
“I’m not the enemy here,” Grace said, hating that there was a slight tremor in her voice.
“Neither am I,” he said with ease and then laughed at the look on Grace’s face. He placed a finger under her chin and forced her to keep looking up at him. “Open book,” he teased. “Now, are you sure you don’t have something to say?”
For just a moment Grace had forgotten that she was supposed to be mad at him. For just an instant when she turned around and saw how close he was, she wanted to press closer to him like she had been this morning in the park. But once he opened his mouth, all of the reasons that she hated him came flooding back.


New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.

When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
