The best Kindle Season’s Meetings 3 Stars for the book + 1 star for Nicola Victoria Vincent's narration. At the moment I am trying to listen to Vincent's narrations. Luckily, most are enjoyable books with the majority by Cari Hunter and Jenny Frame. She can make good books great and so-so books, good and great books even better. (EDIT: I forgot to say, I think Nicola also made it a better reading experience because she handled Catherine's stutter brought on by stress very well. I think reading it myself, it doesn't have the impact of hearing the narrator stutter her lines.)Workaholic Catherine Birch misses her flight to visit her best friends, Beth and Katie at Christmas. She reluctantly agrees to hitch a ride with Katie's cousin, Holly. She is especially apprehensive after seeing the old car that Holly drives. They get caught in a snowstorm and they wait it out in a small village. This gives them time to acknowledge their attraction to each other, even though they are opposites. As other reviewers have mentioned, Beth is not very likable and self-centered, creating problems for the new couple.There is a cute and lovable dog & a kid making it a pleasant Christmas read.

  2. I received a copy of this book from Net Galley for an honest review.Honestly, this book has issues There are positives and enjoyment to be had reading Season s Meeting The opening chapters where the reader learns about Catherine s Cat life are very well done Her beloved Gran and last living relative has died leaving Cat to throw herself into her work and avoid the social norms of the holiday season Cajoled into visiting her old college roommate Beth and her family but too late to catch a flight [...]


  3. When you care about the dog than about the couple, you know something s wrong.It was boring Too cheesy I m not a fan of the love at first sight scenario Already being hopelessly in love with each other after two weeks Please I know it s supposed to be cheesy, it s a Christmas story after all, but still I ve made it to 75%, which is better than I expected I wanted to give up after 30%.


  4. Even by lesbian romance standards this was ridiculously fast By the end I was struggling to finish it because it was so unbelievable And the worst part was the relationship between Catherine and Beth There was no way that those two people could be best friends They are so unlikable and know each other so little.



  5. Started out well, Catherine is cute in a socially awkward, low self esteem kind of way who is kind of a Grinch and Holly is her complete opposite, outgoing and cheery with a lot of Holiday cheer It is very sweet the way they grow closer during the snowstorm and then at the cabin Then it kind of goes down hill for me Between the reasons for keeping secrets to the overbearing Beth trying to set her up with that how did Beth know this woman, did she even know this woman, and why on earth would you [...]


  6. It s a nice little story to get in da mooooood for Christmas, I liked the main characters a lot but I have two things I didn t like Beth and the rushed ending Beth was annoying, her behaviour totally inappropriate, thank God they put Katie on her side and Florence She was pissed because the main characters had fallen in love and so there could be trouble, or maybe not it s so none of her business The ending felt a little rushed and Holly acted un Holly like and left because of some stupid reason [...]


  7. This book will be too sweet for those who like their lesrom angsty but I m not one of them It drifted into tooth achingly sweet on a few occasions but always managed to bring it back just enough.One of our main characters hates Christmas due to past Christmas trauma but if you re thinking you can guess the plot from here you re probably right.A sweet, happily ever after, easy to read tale that is very well done for what it is.



  8. This Christmas story includes nail bitingly thrilling, predominantly charming, and lovingly passionate diverse scenes and people The two main female characters have distinctive differences, but blend into a solid team as they face somewhat overwhelming and life threatening situations The story is set in Great Britain where the opening entails a bit of a treacherous drive during a rapidly worsening snow storm from London to a Scotland National Park that encompasses Avie, the final destination Thi [...]




  9. This book was provided to me by the publisher via an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley This review also found on my blog at theFar Nerdy Book ReviewIf you re looking for a heartwarming story about two women finding love during the holiday season, I found this novel to be a great fit.Braving a winter storm in order to make the Christmas celebration with her closest friends, workaholic Catherine can t seem to catch a break With work causing her to miss her flight and fu [...]



  10. The holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year, so I was really excited to dive into Season s Meetings, a story about two women falling in love during this time of snow, Santa Claus and gingerbread Upon reading the description of the book, I was expecting something light and whimsical and charming and it definitely had whimsy and was absolutely charming But it also had a lot to it than I d expected for a holiday romance The first thing that grabbed me about this book was the main ch [...]


  11. I received an ARC of this book from Inked Rainbow Reads in return for an honest review.Let s face it, I m a sucker for a good romance This one was sweet and an easy read There were a couple things I m going to mention though They might be considered spoilers but I m going to try to talk vaguely enough that it doesn t ruin things for anybody First, it s integral to the story that Catherine get in the car I don t think she would You re talking about someone who has a phobia about driving, about ri [...]


  12. Amy Dunne s second novel, Season s Meetings, reinforces the writing skills and storytelling ability we saw in her Goldie winning first novel, Secret Lies This is a gentler, easier read, without the YA angst and issues of abuse and self harm, falling solidly into the Traditional Romance category But that doesn t detract at all from how good a wordsmith Ms Dunne is.The characters are engaging, well rounded and three dimensional From Angus the snowplow driver to the Celtic witch in the tourist shop [...]


  13. Catherine Birch is unhappily conned into spending Christmas with her best friend s family in the Scottish Highlands When she misses her flight, Catherine is forced to road trip with Holly Daniels The two could not be opposite And when a raging snowstorm leaves them stranded, Catherine and Holly are left not only fighting each other but their escalating attraction.I was a little late reading this story Not that it s so old, but it would have been the perfect to tale to read around Christmas Seas [...]


  14. I was excited for this book from the moment I read the synopsis and it definitely didn t disappoint I found Catherine to be an interesting if not somewhat eccentric character from the beginning and couldn t wait to see what kind of messes she could get herself into When Holly entered the picture I knew this author had produced a match made in opposites attracting heaven From the first meeting this pair left me grinning and shaking my head.Well written with a good plot the story flowed well and d [...]


  15. I really enjoyed this book It s very sweet, with very little angst, which is pretty much exactly what I want out of a holiday romance I can see myself reading this again next holiday season.

  17. Final Verdict Fun holiday romance book that is perfect with a cup of tea and curling up on the couch When I attended the Bold Strokes Book Festival in 2014 in Nottingham, England, author Amy Dunne read an excerpt from Season s Meetings It was a fun and playful scene from her upcoming book Between the excerpt and how much I enjoyed Dunne s previous novel, Secret Lies, I was very excited when my NetGalley request was granted to read Season s Meetings If you want to read an excerpt you can find one [...]



  18. Catherine Birch doesn t care much for the holiday season she s a workaholic who comes across as something of a Grinch to most of the people in her life Only those who know her well realize that the reason Catherine hates the holidays so much is because her parents died close to Christmas when she was a young girl The grandmother who raised Catherine after her parents deaths is gone now too, and the only person Catherine really has in her life now is Beth, her best friend, who rather blackmails h [...]


  19. 2.8 starsOne for the dog loversI started reading this over the holidays but quickly abandoned it when the little dog showed up and became a leading character ack It was just TOO MUCH DOG I know, I know I m the only lesbian on the planet who doesn t want to be alone in the apocalypse with a dog Especially lesfic dogs who are practically magical, sometimes talk, and often manage to unite the leads while posing adorably into the narration I m even immune to cute little cairn terriers who are sooooo [...]

  21. Season s Meeting is a good book The characters are very well developed It is about Catherine Birch who works all the time and hates Christmas because she lost her family around that time as a child She has everything she could want money wise and is quite the hard ass at her job that she is very good at This is the first Christmas for Catherine without granny Birch With no family left she just want s to be alone Her best friend from college Beth finally gets her to relent into coming to her hous [...]


  22. nb I received a review copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley Catherine is a type AAAAAAAAAAA read that, extremely type A , and she hates Christmas When her boss suddenly demands Catherine s underlings turn in reports just before Christmas or lose their jobs, Cat takes it upon herself to do all the reports herself This means she misses out on her flight to Scotland, where she was to spend Christmas with her best friend and her partner The weather forecast is dire, and the only option [...]


  23. I got an advance copy from netgalley for an honest review.Kimmy is so adorable and I felt for her she s such a trustworthy dog when she warms up to people and she s a sweetheart too Being a part of Catherine and Holly s family is one of the best things that can happen to her after her last owner died Not only is she well behaved but she bows, which is pretty cool.This book is completely told from Catherine s point of view She s a complete workaholic and puts in 15 hours shifts on a daily basis I [...]


  24. Wow, where to start Completely different to her last award winning book, Secret LiesSecret Lies, the tension, romance, and humour show how adept Amy is at writing in a variety of styles She continues the believable and highly likable characters but moves away from the serious topics of self harm and abuse, and introduces the formidable Kimmy, who will melt hearts everywhere I am not a Christmas person, but I really enjoyed the festivity in this, and I am almost embarrassed to admit that it got [...]
