Authors: RJ Scott & Meredith Russell

Former Marine Nick Sheridan is at a crossroads. With his entire life ahead of him he struggles to find direction and his place in the world. Car sharing to get home for his sister’s Christmas wedding seems like a good idea at first. Spending the time with the man he kissed and left years before, maybe not so much.
Cameron Bennett lost most of his teenage years to cancer and he now lives every day to the fullest. He decides to drive from Seattle to Vermont for his best friend’s wedding and capture moments of it on film. He hadn’t planned on car sharing with the man who kissed him ten years ago, but somehow he ends up with a brooding Nick by his side.
Along the way, the men learn that sometimes life plans mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. Love can be found in the most unexpected of ways, and facing your demons head on is sometimes the only way to live.

The Road to Frosty Hollow is a sweet, heartwarming, Friends-to-Lovers story starring Nick and Cam. Although, it is actually Nick's sister's best friend, but that's being picky! Many moons ago, Nick and Cam kissed. Cam pushed Nick away for reasons of his own. Nick came to the obvious conclusion, and decided not to push the matter, especially as he was leaving town to join the Marines. Time moved on, and now both Nick and Cam will be spending three weeks driving from Seattle to Frosty Hollow for Kaitlyn's wedding. That gives them three weeks to kill, preferably without killing each other. Will things move forward for them, or are they stuck in the past?
Nick has decisions to make, whilst Cam has his own issues. You would think that would make for a dreary, depressing read, but you couldn't be more wrong. This is uplifting and warm, certainly HOT in places, but will leave you with a feeling of optimism. You get to hear from both Nick and Cam which helps to figure out what they are thinking.
Full of romance, and even a cameo from The Crooked Tree Ranch (WOOT!), this is a brilliant Christmas story - perfect for warming the cockles of your heart. Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, I can certainly recommend this story.
