5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: "After growing up in cheap motels, moving from town to town with her sister and mother, Cheyenne Christensen is grateful to be on her own. She's grateful, too, for the friends she found once her family settled in California. But she's troubled by the mystery of her earliest memories, most of which feature a smiling blonde woman. A woman who isn't her mother.
Although Cheyenne has repeatedly asked for explanations, the people who could help aren't talking. Cheyenne is set on finding answers, but without so much as a birth certificate, it won't be easy.
Things get even more complicated when her closest friend is attracted to the man Cheyenne has secretly loved for years. For Eve's sake, she decides to step aside—which lands her right in the arms of Dylan Amos, oldest and baddest of the hell-raising Amos brothers. He's the kind of guy she's sworn to avoid. She can't afford to make a mistake, not when she finally has a chance to learn who she really is and change her life for the better. But…maybe there's more to Dylan than she thought. Maybe letting him go would be a bigger mistake."
SWhen Snow Falls by Brenda Novak is a story that will have readers rooting for the underdogs to finally have their shot at true happiness. Cheyenne is a character whose loyalty is as strong as her will to survive her background is, which is so inspiring the pages just fly by as readers time becomes irrelevant. What is so amazing and different about When Snow Falls is how there is a love triangle, but it is such a love triangle full of honesty and trust it is almost shocking to read it through. The first time Dylan speaks to Chey I instantly am rooting for him and them as a couple, because even the words on the pages readers can see their souls colliding with each other. As for Chey and her hardships, her friendships, family, her relationship with Joe and all the other messes that seem to collide in her life all at the same time, the constant is always the same. While I won't say what the constant is, I will say that Chey discovering her past, her present, what she wants out of her life, and how she finally stands up for what her heart truly desires is the best part of this book. When Snow Falls by Brenda Novak is easily 5 smirks because this story makes readers fall in love with characters who don't know how to give up and who strive to never lose what they thought they could never have.
