The Trouble with Snowmen by Dorlana Vann - Review

trouble with snowmen tour banner

The Trouble with Snowmen by Dorlana VannSnowmen drift into your life like they were sent from above. The relationship is great, rolls right along, and builds. Everything seems perfect … until a little heat is introduced. Then they melt, leaving only their hat, their scarf, something to remind their victims of what they’d lost. Urban cowgirl Haley Monroe is told that the fabulously hot guy who just dumped her was a snowman. Her friend Maximilian convinces her that the only way she’ll ever stop being played by snowmen is to become one. It takes a lot of drinks to work up the nerve, but Haley gets her sexy on and goes on the prowl. Famous horror author Larry White drops everything to attend a midnight séance at Maximilian’s apartment where he meets Haley. By the way she’s dressed—and just propositioned him—he assumes she’s a hooker. Larry can’t pass up the chance to get inside her head, especially since prostitution is the character’s occupation in his next book. After spending the weekend together, unexpected sparks surprise both Haley and Larry. The trouble is Haley is dead-set on snowmanning the unkempt “starving artist” she met at the séance, and Larry doesn’t think he could have a real relationship with a woman with a past, so they go their separate ways. The real fun begins when they meet again and find out neither one of them were who they thought they were. Can they reignite the flame? Or will they have a snowman’s chance in hell?

 My Thoughts: The Trouble with Snowmen is a cute romance. Well actually it's a disaster turned romance. I found myself shaking my head at how much these two characters could mess up. It was funny and it made their story more interesting.

Haley is a sweet girl. She's a people pleaser, which isn't a bad thing, but I felt like she let people walk on her at times. She grows some in the story, and figures out where she wants her life to go. I liked that part a lot. Her relationship with Larry is a little messy at times, but I was really rooting for them.

The side characters in this book were a lot of fun. Maximilian was a great friend, if somewhat self-absorbed. I liked Haley's parents a lot, even though they were only in the book briefly. The slightly spooky aspect of the possible ghosts added something extra to the book. This is a fast and fun read that people will enjoy.
