Snow-Kissed is the story of a once happy couple whose fertility challenges have left them both heart-broken for their lost children and seemingly unable to reach each other. It’s not a light read, but it was one with a very real feeling sense of grief and pain.
Kai and Kurt have lost three pregnancies and each time the recovery became more difficult. Kurt did everything he could to support Kai but, as is often the case in, they lost their ability to connect as they each coped with their grief. After a separation, the two are thrown together for a weekend in a mountain cabin when they get snowed in. Kai and Kurt are able to come together first physically and then by wading through enough of their pain to find joy in each other again.
Hardly the ecstatic experience one normally expects from a Christmas novella, Sun-Kissed was still a compelling, understated read that I would recommend, but maybe not when you’re already having a rough day.
Sun-Kissed tells the story of Kurt’s mother finding love and overlaps with Florand’s L’Amour et Chocolat series.
Laura Florand’s Catalogue gives an overview of her published works of which I recommend many. I adore her particular brand of romance. Links to my other reviews can be found on my complete reading list of books sorted by author or Author Commentary & The Tallies Shameful.
