In ANGELS IN THE SNOW (3), Claire Andrews hopes getting away from the city will get her back into her work. Grief has consumed her and being alone in the mountains allows her to give in to the dark cloud overhead. Trying to maintain a schedule, Claire takes a walk each day and finally, inspiration strikes. She begins to paint and the images are unlike anything she's done before. Though this novella begins slowly and it's hard to do much with a solitary character, it soon picks up and is a perfect short read for the holiday season. Melody Carlson's writing is pleasant and while the romance is light, it's with feeling. (Sep., 176 pp., $14.99)
