One Frosty Night by Janice Kay Johnson


Unexpected Christmas plans

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….

My review:  One Frosty Night by Janice Kay Johnson


Good drama, mystery, characters well developed, and a few love scenes. Lots of tension in the town.

A girl around sixteen years old died in the woods.  No one has come forward to say who she was.  No one is willing to say anything about her.

Olivia Bowen has come back to her home town to help run the family business after her father had a heart attack.  Now that he had died she is not sure what to do.  Her relationship with her mother is strained.

Ben Hovik is a high school principle.  He is raising his step-son Carson.  He is divorced.  Ben is interested in Olivia.  He had dumped her when they were teenagers.

Carson is sixteen.  He is on the basketball team.  He is being bullied by two seniors.

I liked how it ended.  Though I can't believe how some people did not take seriously about what some kids had done.

I was given this ebook to read so I could give a honest review of it in exchange.
