The Twelve Days Of Christmas follow up companion to Snowball’s Christmas. This time the adorable feline has her eye set on a new pair: Sophie and Daniel. Previously Snowball had despair for Daniel for interfering in her match making. This time though she sees the possible connection between him and the new bed and breakfast manager and decides maybe it is time to give him a second chance.
Sophie is the new manager at the bed and breakfast having taken over for Tilly and working with Emily and Lukas. She has previous experience working in a large hoe in NYC so the bed and breakfast seems pretty simplistic at first. Well except that there is construction going on, a winter wedding to be had, and a Christmas market to be held. Plus Tilly, Emily, and Lukas have to leave town unexpectedly for a family emergency. This leaves Sophie completely in charge with a handsome contractor who wants to help her.
Sophie and Daniel’s first encounter is a memorable one. It involves Snowball, the birds outside, a tree, and sharp kitty nails. Yes, it is exactly as hilarious as you think. Daniel is feeling the pressure of finishing the construction project which has been delayed due to the weather. Sophie is feeling the pressure of a new job and doesn’t want to let anyone down. She is also still reeling from a betrayal which was both person and professional.
Given the fact that I have read Snowball’s Christmas, it was fun to watch Snowball’s relationship with Daniel change. This kitty is still as curious as she was before, and does get into tons of trouble for her kitty mischief. As a cat owner, her antics were completely believable and I believed that she had the best interest in mind for her humans. Sophie and Daniel’s relationship was definitely a bit of a push pull dynamic with flaws of sweetness and jealousy.
The Twelve Days Of Snowball has a beautiful Christmas background using a touch of the 12 Days Of Christmas. I really like the way the items of the 12 Days were used in the story. It was both creative and funny as well as endearing. Add in the shenanigans of Snowball and I hooked. I don’t think you have to read the first book to understand the second but it will give you more context as why Snowball dislikes Daniel so much. This one also introduces a character who stirs up trouble for Daniel and Sophie. Who knows maybe Snowball can help her find her happily ever after next!
