One Frosty Night by Janice Kay Johnson

One Frosty NightOne Frosty Night by Janice Kay Johnson

Olivia Bowen would rather avoid this holiday season. Even her satisfaction at improving the family business doesn’t make up for the loss of her beloved father and the sudden tension with her mother. Olivia questions how much longer she can live in her hometown. And her decision is further complicated by Ben Hovik.

She should keep her distance—he broke her heart years ago. Yet his compassion and their still-sizzling attraction are seductive. Could she be falling for him again? When she spends Christmas with Ben and his teenage son, she wonders if this might be the first of many more….


Not your average Christmas read, One Frosty night is an unusual winter tale with an element of suspense and mystery, but also a heartwarming love story.
Death, children and past pains, it’s a story that stays true to and deals with everyday obstacles. The relationship between step-father and son was right on par and added a touch of humor, as was the strained relationship between Olivia and her mother. It perfectly depicts that everything in the world isn’t perfect during the holidays, but yet a happily ever after can still be found.

I would have given it five stars, but at times the story jumped around a tad, as if the author was trying to wrap it up, but didn’t lay out all the foundation. Still a great read for anytime of year, but one that makes you want to cozy up on a cold winters night with a cup of coffee and a good book.

I received a complimentary copy of One Frosty Night from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
