Review by Booklist Reviews

Ben Tanner is happiest alone in his woodworking studio, but he needs help writing a book. A friend suggests Darcy Shaughnessy, and they are instantly attracted but unable to act until a huge snowstorm forces them to face their concerns, including Ben's difficulties with celebrating Christmas. This highly engaging romance is one of the strongest in Chase's (A Sky Full of Stars, 2016) excellent Shaughnessy Brothers series. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Chase completes the Shaughnessy series with the youngest sibling—outspoken but sweet Darcy Shaughnessy—finding love with talented, reclusive writer Benjamin Tanner. At the request of her sister-in-law, Savannah, Darcy travels to Seattle to help Ben finish his book and ends up getting snowed in. Used to standing up to her five overprotective brothers, Darcy is tough and occasionally intimidating, but Ben isn't cowed. He immediately sets her straight when she wrongly accuses him of having inappropriate feelings for Savannah. Once the air is cleared, they use their snow days to indulge in good food, deep conversation, and passionate lovemaking, making it difficult for them to let go when the weather clears and Darcy needs to return home to find a permanent job. They decide to have a long-distance relationship, but the more time they spend in the presence of others, the more their differences begin threatening the love they found with each other in Seattle. Chase maintains the missing matriarch's connection, ending this wonderful series the same way it started: with great writing, a winsome ensemble, and the perfect blend of heart and sass.
