There are worse things than being stranded in a blizzard.
Artist Trevor Morrison has always appreciated the little things in life, treating each day as a gift. And with good reason: he’s been on the transplant-recipient list for too long now. When he learns just how numbered his days truly are, he resolves not to take them for granted. But he won’t be unrealistic, either—which means romantic commitments are off the table.
Marcus Roberts seems to have it all. He’s handsome, financially sound, and on the fast track to partnership at a prestigious law firm. In reality, though, his drive for success has meant no time for friends or relationships. Add in the fact that his family discarded him long ago, and he’s facing yet another holiday season alone.
When the biggest snowstorm to hit Colorado in decades leaves Marc and Trevor stranded at the same hotel, a chance encounter and a night of passion leads to more than either of them expected. Finding comfort in each other is a welcome surprise, but time is not on their side. Either they find a way to beat the odds, or they lose each other forever.
All you have to do is read the book description to know that you’re in for tears with A Fortunate Blizzard, so it probably isn’t worth mentioning. Yet, I’m going to bring it up anyway, just in case. Brace yourself… L.C. Chase outdid herself this time.
Even through the tears, there was a lot to love about this one. Trevor’s situation seemed hopeless and even though he was being overly realistic with his prognosis, he wasn’t quite done yet. His family was amazing, especially his mom. I loved that woman to pieces. *sigh*
Marc had everything, except a life and family. He lived for his job. He had no real friends and he was consumed with his long term goals. His night with Trevor was just a fling… a much needed distraction. Turns out Fate had different plans for both of them.
The irony in this story was that Trevor was living what little time he had left to the fullest and Marc wasn’t really ‘living’ at all. I loved how Trevor made him see what he was missing and how Marc found true friends that he didn’t even know he had. All of those things together, as well as a Christmas miracle, made A Fortunate Blizzard a perfect Holiday read.
