Winter is coming to an end, but I’m not quite ready to say goodbye. Which is a good thing, since it’s still a little snowy and cold where I live. Even better, the snowy weather seemed like a great excuse to share some of my favorite wintry and holiday romances. I hope you enjoy the list!

The Slope Rules by Melanie Hooyenga

Cover for The Slope Rules by Melanie Hooyenga

So technically The Slope Rules is young adult, and not exactly a romance novel. But! There is romance. And snow. So there’s that. Also, I really enjoyed it. The main character grapples with tough coming-of-age stuff while trying to land a spot on her new school’s ski team. There’s friend drama, complicated emotions, romance, and skiing—I’m not a skier, but I loved the details about ski jumping in this book. Definitely a snow day-worthy read!

Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan

Sarah Morgan writes sweet, fun romance with a great balance of emotional depth. This one is about a workaholic who is allergic to Christmas and thinks she’s escaping when she gets a job doing PR for a remote Vermont ski resort. The romance is swoony, and I loved the main character’s extreme (and comical) aversions to holiday-making. Warning: you’ll probably want to bake some type of holiday cookie after reading this.

Heroes Are My Weakness by Susan Elizabeth Philips

Cover for Heroes Are My Weakness by Susan Elizabeth Philips

Heroes Are My Weakness is one of my favorites. The story echoes gothic romances (loooove) but with a very contemporary twist… Great humor and a good romance, plus a unique and interesting heroine. Perfect for curling up with, maybe grab a hot cup of tea or cocoa for this one.

An Ex for Christmas by Lauren Layne

This. Book. SWOON. Lauren Layne’s books are often on my favorites lists and when I found out she wrote a holiday book, I was ALL IN. And it didn’t disappoint! An Ex for Christmas is like your favorite Hallmark movie, except with steamy scenes Hallmark totally would have deleted. ;) It’s sweet, it’s snowy, and the friends-to-kissing romance made my heart go pitter-pat. Loved it!

Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan

Cover for Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan

Yes, another Sarah Morgan novel… But with good reason! Miracle on 5th Avenue is short and sweet, and great if you’re in the mood for a swoony romance. The heroine is a starry-eyed romantic who loves the holidays, the hero is a grumpy widower who writes horror. Delights ensue! Loved this one—well worth reading beneath a blanket, but it might make you want to pull out your Christmas lights again…


There you have it! Those would be my top picks for a snow day. (And it’s a good thing, too, because we have more flurries in the forecast for tonight. Brrr…)
