About the book:
Snowball, that lovable bundle of feline fluff readers first met as a kitten in Snowball’s Christmas, is all grown up. And now that she has her forever home at a cozy B&B, she’s determined to orchestrate a forever love match, just in time for the holidays . . .
Snowball takes her job as the “official kitty” at the Victorian B&B Inn, Weber Haus, very seriously. Greeting guests and keeping tabs on them is a full-time feline job, after all. However, being nice to Daniel Aarons is not on her to-do list. The handsome construction manager almost messed up her forever family, and she isn’t about to forgive him anytime soon . . .
But then someone new arrives at Weber Haus. Her name is Sophie Heidt—and she’s the B&B’s new manager. When Snowball goes missing on Sophie’s first day, Daniel, in charge of the new hotel wing, comes to her rescue by getting the cat to do what she does best: attack him.
It doesn’t take long for Snowball’s animal instincts to reveal that Daniel and Sophie are meant to be together. Unfortunately, Daniel keeps making a mess of things. It’s going to take some special insight and holiday cheer to bring them together. But if anyone can do it, Snowball can—even if she has to tolerate turtle doves, French hens, calling birds, and other fur-raising human traditions . . .
The Twelve Days of Snowball by Kristen McKanagh is the second book in the contemporary romance Snowball series. Each of the books in this series take place in the days leading up to Christmas and feature different main characters so they can be read as a standalone. The characters from the first book do make a slight appearance in the second though for those having read both.
The somewhat unique thing with the Snowball contemporary romance series is that not only do you get the point of view of the two main characters but also that of the tiny fluffball herself, Snowball the kitten. Snowball belongs to Miss Tilly who runs the B&B in which the stories are set and Snowball is quite the matchmaker around the B&B. This time around Sophie Heidt has been hired to be the new manager of the B&B and she and Daniel Aarons are left to run the B&B together when a family emergency calls Miss Tilly away.
So I mentioned in my review of the first book how thankful I was that since I was suckered into picking it up with the adorable kitten on the cover that I was so happy the story was a good one that I enjoyed and I feel the same the second time around. The characters were nice yet again but it’s so cute to have snowball included and follow her antics and her thoughts. It’s certainly still a sweet series that matches the adorable covers and I loved how this one incorporated the twelve days to match the title too!
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
