Summary(from Goodreads):

Fate always knows when you’re ready for love.
The past is catching up with Aspyn Layton. The father she never knew passed away and she is left to deal with his estate. An unexpected snowstorm has her stranded at the one place she didn’t want to be—her father’s house—with a naked man.
Damon Andrews has a secret, one he shared with Aspyn’s father. He must convince Aspyn there is more to life than what she knows. How will she react when she finds out he is a mountain lion, and she is his mate? Their fates are intertwined.

This is a short Novella that you can devour in one quick sitting. I would suggest this book to people that want a cute short story. I enjoyed it, but it was a bit short for me. I don’t normally read novellas for this reason, especially when I like the storyline and characters like I did here, because I always want more! My only complaint here is that I wish the story was longer. (I think it took me under an hour to read)
Aspyn is a good character, but she gave into Damon a little fast in my opinion. She seems like a strong person and I couldn’t really get on board with her accepting everything that was thrown at her within the first few hours of knowing this guy. I did however, see where she was coming from. She was feeling some really strong things for Damon and I guess I can see what she did what she did. But it just seemed a little rushed for me. It’s not rushed at all for a novella but again, I am used to full length books. (That is the problem with ebooks sometimes, you can’t always tell how long they are- and I like to get some idea of length when I go about judging the pacing of the book) 
Overall, the story is interesting and I enjoyed reading it. For the length of the book, the plot did not feel rushed. I mean, things flowed at the same rate throughout but when considering other books, it all felt a little fast for me. But that is what the book is- it is just a cute short story about two people. And if that is what you are looking for, I think you might enjoy Snowy Fate.

 About the author: 

Born and raised in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, I now reside about an hour from Washington, D.C. I am a lady who likes to keep busy, and am always busy doing something. With two different college degrees, I believe you are never done learning.

Being the first daughter to an avid reader, this gave me the advantage of learning to read at a young age. Since learning to read I have always had my nose in a book. It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I started writing down the stories I came up with. 
I am blessed with a wonderful supportive husband, Thomas. He is my other half and allows me to stay home and pursue my writing. My writing buddies Max (a cocker spaniel) and Dawne (a beagle mix) are always around to listen to me bounce ideas off them. They might not be able to answer, but they are helpful in their own ways.
