My Review

So ... I felt like The Cabin had a good potential Hallmark channel movie vibe to it with the setup of enemies unexpectedly being trapped together in a remote cabin and having to rely on one another to make it through a dangerous snow storm that cuts them off from the outside world completely. Sounds Hallmark Channel movieish right? Props to this author for thinking up this backdrop that was well portrayed and for showing a lot of emotion between our two characters that is quite strong. I also felt like the setting was well described. With that said, I had a few issues. First, while I appreciate the care our author puts into including Scripture and Biblical wisdom in the book, it seemed kind of randomly placed and didn't seem to flow too well. Also, the way our author explained feelings or actions seemed a bit choppy and confusing at times. While I think the author did well at making sure the characters were clearly portrayed, they both felt sort of immature and not very endearing or relatable in my opinion. I appreciated the slow blossoming romance and I felt the author put a lot of heart into her book. I recommend this one for those looking for a shorter Christian fiction, or that enjoy a romance or Hallmark movie vibe to their books.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own.

Glittery snow. The perfect cabin in the mountains. And sworn enemies trapped together. How could anything go wrong? Welcome to the cabin where writers like to go to get away from the noise and bother of life to write. I hope you don’t mind the two guests already here. They’re stuck together after one stole the other’s novel. But the famous one has firsts rights to the work. Who’d dare believe he’d be the perpetrator of the crime? Or is it the newbie writer who longed to be known for more than her graphic designs who plagiarized? Stay and enjoy a mug of instant coffee and some potted meat. And make sure to bring in your warmest blanket, since this eclectic home has lost power in the storm. You’ll also find a complementary cordless phone with no connection for your accommodations. Enjoy your stay! And take a moment to check out our amenities folder laden with an expert below. 

Read an excerpt from The Cabin

Betrayal is such a benign looking word on paper. In real life it could kill a person. Like me. I was dying on the inside as I flipped from one page to the next of the bestselling novel in my hands. And all because of Keenan Brennan—the hottest bestselling author I knew and dated some time ago. Yet some part of me kept praying it wasn’t true as I pressed into the sofa cushion and continued to read. It just couldn’t be. But the book with the startlingly dark cover said it all. “No, no, no.” Hot tears stung my cheeks as I ripped the well-designed cover off the book and then launched it across the living room. It smashed against the refurbished brick wall and landed with its pages bent. Good. It deserved a worse fate than just bent pages. How? When had he stolen my book idea? I face-planted my palm against my forehead. “At the restaurant.” Why didn’t I keep my big fat mouth shut and tell my sister Aeris the storyline in the privacy of my home? Tears stung my eyes. Who’d have guessed my lowdown almost boyfriend would stoop so low. He didn’t need my work. I stared across the room, not focusing on the heap of a good—terrible—book. Well it was on the NYT bestselling list. Not bad for a nobody writer like myself. And since it was my story—not his—then I allowed myself a moment of self-satisfaction. My gaze dropped to the torn book. I had to take another look. Couldn’t it be a coincidence? Maybe the rest of it was different. In a scramble, I grabbed it up and found the page I last read.

 By chapter forty there was no doubt.
