Baby, It's Cold Inside - Hunter King
Reading Challenge Category: Christmas Book
Sarah Vickers is nursing a badly broken heart after being dumped just before Christmas by a narcissistic man-child. She wants only to turn her brain and her heart off for a few days and take solace in the soothing hot springs at the Awtenbush Resort just outside of the picturesque village of Snowdon, MA. Josh Temsik has a failing business, and the holiday cheer is way more than he can stand this year. He’s at Awtenbush to avoid the crowds, the decorations,and any kind of Christmas spirit, and intends to do his best to ignore everyone as he soaks his stress away. When a Polar Vortex dumps three feet of snow on the resort and drops the temperature down near zero, the power grid goes down and leaves the resort with no electricity and no heat. Thrown together for survival, Sarah and Josh quickly discover their own method of heating things up. But is Sarah’s warmth enough to crack through Josh’s icy exterior? Will Josh prove to be the real man Sarah longs for? And how is Santa Claus is involved in getting these two together?
This was a really different story and a great short read from the new author Hunter King. This book is part of the latest Flirt Club collaboration. This is the perfect snuggle under a duvet and read book. It is set in a very snowy and cold area of Massachusetts, and you could really feel the cold blasting from the page. Sarah and Josh have booked into the Awtenbush resort separately to escape their problems. They are the only single people there and are immediately drawn to one another, initially just to keep warm. However, the sparks between the two are enough to warm the entire resort. The book is set in 1976, which is a really different take for one of these short novels and really added a little bit of simplicity and purity to the story. I loved that the epilogue is set 42 years later and gives us a good snapshot of the events that have occurred since Sophie and Josh’s stay at the resort. A really heartwarming and enjoyable book with a little sprinkle of Christmas magic.
