Christmas in the Snow by Karen Swan
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A terrific author who always produces good meaty plots. This one involves Allegra and her sister tracing their grandmother’s life in Switzerland alongside Allegra’s high powered business life. She works in the world of finance and a big deal is up for grabs. The wheeling and dealing does get a little convoluted but it adds depth to a romance that naturally turns out well after much turmoil. It’s a good read.

If you like Karen Swan you might also like to read books by Jane Green, Harriet Evans and Candace Bushnell.

Synopsis

Christmas in the Snow by Karen Swan

No secret stays buried forever...In London, the snow is falling and Christmas is just around the corner - but Allegra Fisher barely has time to notice. She's pitching for the biggest deal of her career and can't afford to fail. And when she meets attractive stranger, Sam Kemp, on the plane to the meeting, she can't afford to lose her focus either. She learned to shut off her emotions long ago and only her sister and best friend Isobel knows why. But when Allegra finds herself up against Sam for the bid, their passion quickly turns sour. In Zermatt in the Swiss Alps, a long-lost mountain hut is discovered in the snow after sixty years and the last person expecting to become involved is Allegra - she hasn't even heard of the woman they found inside. But it soon becomes clear the two women are linked and, as she and Iz travel out to make sense of the mystery, hearts thaw and dark secrets are uncovered, long buried by the snow. With glamorous locations and heart-breaking twists, Christmas in the Snow is all you need in your stocking for a truly decadent Christmas holiday. The perfect gift - even if it's just to yourself.
