Product Description

Let it snow with a sweet contemporary romance from USA Today Bestselling Author, Elena Aitken.

**Now With Bonus Short Story**

Cozy up to the Castle Mountain Lodge in the middle of the remote Canadian Rockies for Unexpected Gifts.

Christmas represents everything Andi Williams is supposed to have, and doesn't. Running away to a remote mountain lodge in the Canadian Rockies sounds like the perfect way to escape, until a mix-up finds her sharing a villa with sexy, rough around the edges, Colin Hartford.

Colin's determination to enjoy the holiday he's missed for the last five years sweeps Andi into a season of joy that she's not sure she's ready for. Can Andi open herself up to everything the holidays have to offer...including love?
~A sweet contemporary romance~

I love to read Christmasy snowy, mountainy beautiful little books any time of year but especially in the summer. Unexpected Gifts gave me exactly what I was looking for. I instantly loved the Characters. They acted like real people vs. characters in a book. They each had baggage and issues but still managed to amuse me. This book also made me long to travel to a destination described as beautifully as this was. I am looking forward to reading more of the Castle Mountain Series but I REALLY liked Andi and Colin.

I actually read this book in an evening and an early morning when I was feeling a little blue. It really picked up my spirits and let me escape just for a little while. Andi escapes home for the holidays and heads to the mountains for a little getaway at Castle Mountain Lodge. Magic and romance quickly interrupt her "solo holiday". Looking forward to more "romance stories" at Castle Mountain Lodge.

Unexpected Gifts is the first book in the Castle Mountain Lodge series, but it's a standalone and from the short excerpt of book two, it's clear that each book has its own characters and the only connection is the setting - the Castle Mountain Lodge resort - and some of the characters, basically the people who work in the resort.
The first chapter pulled me in immediately. We meet Andi, a party planner, and Eva, her funny business partner and friend, while they're at work. Andi is having a hard time surviving the festivities, since she's trying to recover from her ex dumping her after she lost their baby. She's broken and not exactly in the mood for Christmas celebration and, as the last straw, her father calls her to inform her last minute that they will not be celebrating Christmas with her, as his new wife has organized a trip to Disneyworld for their 3-year-old twins. In order to avoid spending Christmas alone, brooding over her life and all that she's lost, Andi accepts an invitation that the Castle Mountain Lodge resort sent to their office. After all, spending a few days in a mountain resort, reading a book and enjoying the snow can be quite inviting.
Enters Colin. He's Canadian too, just like Andi, but has been living in the Caribbeans for the last five years, expanding his business and putting it before anything else. Scarred by a serious relationship that didn't end too well, the last thing he wants is to get involved with someone else. Back in Canada, he's determined to enjoy the true Christmas spirit, in the Canadian way: snow, ice-skating, mountains, Christmas trees and all that he's missed over the last five years. So he gets a room in the Castle Mountain Lodge and he gets there just in time to find a desperate Andi talking to the resort manager.

loved reading this. The imagery was fantastic...I almost felt the snow. I even thought it was too cold for my puppies outside until I realized I was reading not living snow! I have since purchased more of her books and can hardly wait to read them. If you want a feel good story with twists and turns and enjoy the feeling of Christmas check out this book. Well done Elena.
