The title of this book is a little bit misleading, but possibly Snowbound With A Star was already taken. Serena Winston is a major movie star taking time out at a secret hideaway in the Austrian Alps to deal with the aftermath of a bad break-up. It’s just her bad luck that the stranger she rescues after a car crash happens to be Jackson Bennett, host of a major morning television show.
Jackson doesn’t recognize Serena out of her movie makeup and costumes, but he knows the shy beauty is hiding something. He displays some fairly decent behaviour in making a conscious choice not to dig for it, though when he accidentally uncovers her true identity he does have a few moments of being very self-centred and making it All About Him where I wanted to roll my eyes. To his credit, he gets over himself pretty quickly and understands why Serena chose not to enlighten him.
Everything is all wrapped up very neatly and there is a cute Plot Dog to go along with the story, but I really didn’t feel grabbed by this one. It’s pleasant enough but an hour after finishing it, when I sat down to write the review, I had to pull up the Amazon blurb to check what the heroine’s name was. Sweet, but forgettable. Four stars.
