I really enjoyed the author's writing style and the fact that although this was a shorter read than I prefer, all of the pertinent details were there to understand who these characters were as people and to like them too. The vivid description of the setting, scenery and characters made it easy to visualize what was happening which, for me, makes a story truly enjoyable. This author writes very well and I will definitely be reading more from her. A highly recommended, short holiday read!
Scout and Ciara had great chemistry with one another. They've known each other since they were young and even though they've spent a lot of time apart they fall together like the time had never passed. I felt their connection and enjoyed it. They were sweet together (and maybe a little naughty).
The dialogue, the characters, and the description combined to bring the story to life. I could easily picture the locations and there was a strong small town feel to it that I liked. Ciara getting ready to host a Thanksgiving event helped with the holiday feel without it being overwhelming.
Great for those looking for a sweet holiday romance with a little spice!
With two Stanley Cups and one Olympic gold medal under his belt, Scout Winchester is returning to Plymouth Rock, Colorado a hockey rockstar and hometown hero. Amidst the town dedicating an ice rink to him and making a decision about the sale of his family’s cabin, Scout has another important decision weighing on his mind– lingering injuries from a car accident have left him unable to play hockey anymore and he’s got to make a choice regarding a new direction for his career. Also in town for the Thanksgiving holiday is Scout’s longtime friend and lover, Ciara St. James, who’s experienced her own recent setbacks and is back to continue her late Aunt’s legacy with the town’s Pilgrim Society and the Thanksgiving feast reenactment they put on.
Things have always been hot and heavy between Scout and Ciara, but their busy careers have put time and distance between them and it’s been three years since they’ve last seen each other – finally in the same place at the same time, and with the romance of a snowy holiday setting, the pair is quick to make up for lost time ;)
I’ve got to say right off the bat that A Dash Of Spice was a bit, umm, spicier than the previous book in the collection (A Little Bit Of Sugar) – I kind of love that it lived up to its name! Ciara and Scout can’t seem to keep their hands off each whenever they’re in the same room together and things get very steamy, very quickly. Their reconnecting takes place near Thanksgiving, and Ciara hosts a lovely dinner for the Pilgrim Society and their Thanksgiving feast reenactment sponsors (during which Ciara and Scout sneak away for a little rendezvous), but Thanksgiving day itself is only briefly glossed over on the last page – it’s more about the romance and the build up to the big day.
Although this is the second book in the collection, it can be read first, or as a standalone, if you wish, since the events take place concurrently with the events of the previous book. Like the first book in the collection, A Dash Of Spice also briefly touches upon the distance between the Winchester brothers, the hole left in the family by the death of their beloved patriarch, and the return of the boys’ estranged father, while little glimpses of the other Winchester brothers and their stories are scattered around in the background, tying the collection together.
All in all, I really enjoyed A Dash of Spice, it’s a great steamy romance with a lovely snowy, cozy holiday setting. There’s only one more book left in the Snowed In & Snuggled Up Holiday Collection and after how much I liked the first two books in the collection, I am very much looking forward to reading it.
