Publisher's Summary

Celebrate the season with this paws-itively heartwarming novella by New York Times best-selling author Emily March - available in audio first! 

Mary Landry and her pregnant rescue dog are on their way home for Christmas when the unthinkable happens: Her car breaks down along a deserted stretch of mountain highway in the middle of a blizzard. Facing dire conditions, Mary seeks shelter from a lone cabin in the distance whose warm light beckons her like a Christmas star.  

Nick Carstairs has one wish this season - to ride out his least favorite time of the year in peace while working on the latest episode of his hit True Crime podcast. The sexy-voiced podcaster didn’t plan to host a stranger and her pregnant dog, but he’s happy to help a traveler in need…it’s an extra perk that she’s gorgeous. Now if she would just stop trying to change his mind about Christmas. 

As they spend time warming up by the fire - and an unexpected attraction roars to life - will Mary help Nick discover the wonder of the season after all?

Wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit

I really loved this book. I think sometimes I forget to find my Christmas spirit. This book helped me find it this year. I want to decorate now, and wait for the miracles of Christmas. I feel like celebrating.

Sweet Holiday Romance!

Christmas Pawdcast by Emily March was a sweet, fun, and festive listen! When Mary Landry and her foster dog, Angel head home for the holidays to visit her family, she did not expect to be to find her herself stranded due to a snow storm with hunky Santa himself, Nick Carstairs. However, Nick isn't full of Christmas cheer which is evident from his True Crime Podcast he hosts; in fact instead he may be the Grinch himself. However when Mary rolls into his life unexpectedly all bets are off!

Andi Arndt and Jason Clarke narrate the novella, and just the perfect pairing for Mary and Nick. Andi is such a delight highlighting "Mary Christmas" and all her holiday cheer which will definitely put a smile on your face. Jason Clarke portrays broody, grumpy Nick perfectly. (Especially when he has a sudden change of heart!)

If you are looking for a short, sweet holiday romance that will warm your heart and put you in the Christmas spirit, then I highly recommend this audio novella!

What a sweet holiday treat! I am left with a huge smile on my face.

The Christmas Pawdcast was a short and quick read but it was nonetheless full of holiday cheer, romance, and happiness.

A perfect book/audiobook for the holidays!

Loved the story and the narrators!

Very sweet Christmas story

Can be read anytime not just at Christmas. It is very predictable in some ways with a few surprises. I was almost bought to tears at times an emotional but happy ever after book. For an easy read can recommend this book.
