***Spoilers for those who have not read Find You in the Dark or Light in the Shadows***
Clay and Maggie have gone through the dark and come out on the other side. For the first time, they are on this journey together. Fighting for something they both need and can’t live without…each other.
But a long distance relationship is hard. Particularly for two people who are still trying to build something solid on a shaky and troubled foundation. Clay is finally out of treatment and is living in an out patient halfway house. He struggles with what he wants to do and where he wants to go. Questions he worries he will never have the answers to. Maggie is trying to transition into college life and learning how to create a future with someone who is over a thousand miles away.
As the months pass and they struggle with being a part, old insecurities and fears take root and threaten a love that has come so far.
When Maggie decides to fly to Florida as a surprise for Clay on Christmas, she is unsure whether it will be the first step toward what they both desperately want or whether it could possibly be the end of it all.But with the holidays approaching, Maggie and Clay are reminded that even when the days are coldest, you can still find the warmth and that hope and love are the greatest gifts of all.

Kristine's Thoughts:
I'm going to keep this short and simple for two reasons. The first being that it is only 96 pages long and the second being the extremely detailed synopsis. I had already read the entire Find You in the Dark series so I was very familiar with Maggie and Clay. In this novella we get to experience their first Christmas together. I was happy to revisit their story but I did find it a little slow at first. It didn't really tell you anything you didn't already know from reading the series. At the point when Maggie decides to plan her surprise visit is where it picked up and became more enjoyable for me.
Although I did like Warmth in Ice I did not enjoy it as much as the rest of the series. I would recommend reading the series before attempting this novella because I don't think you would appreciate it otherwise.
