Review | Summer in Snow Valley

Today it’s ONLY $1!! — amazon Goodreads

Catching Caytie

Caytie Holbrook has only tried once before to escape from her manipulative father and this will be the last time. She only has a few months until she gains her inheritance and will no longer need him. Hopefully, her Uncle George’s ranch will provide a safe refuge until she’s able to be independent.
Jace McAllister can’t believe the steamy high society woman that drives so recklessly could possibly be related to his partner George. If only things didn’t need to change, Jace certainly doesn’t need Caytie here messing up all of his thoughts.

Review: I LOVED EVERY WORD! Not only is this a cute romance but it’s also got some suspense to it that’s VERY enjoyable. It’s steamy but light. Heads up – this is longer than most of the books but still just a novella so there are parts that you’ll wish you hadn’t missed.

Tin Foil Tiaras

Cameron Elliott, pageant coach, is visiting Snow Valley to prep the very beautiful Annalisa Drake on her upcoming pageant. What she wasn’t expecting was the apathetic contestant she saw. How is Cameron supposed to keep her job if Annalisa doesn’t care and it’s all Mrs. Drake, one of her boss’s best friends, cares about?
Hopefully Annalisa’s brother Kyle will be able to shed some light on this – if his animosity of the pageant industry doesn’t get in the way.

Review: LOVED IT! This was a very emotional book to read. Cameron has to make a decision on a moral dilemma. Do what’s right or lose her job.

A Touch of Love

A new masseuse has moved into Snow Valley and while Luke Wilson thinks it’s a bunch of hooey he knows it’s hooey his little sister will love for her birthday. When he walks through the door his eyes land on shopkeeper Annie Stirland and it’s all he can do to wait for her to say yes to a date.
How can Luke be sure that it’s really Annie he wants and it’s not just his protection instinct kicking in again?

Review: OOHH!! This was such fun! First, I LOVED that characters from past books were mentioned (you don’t have to know them but immediately put me at home in the story). Second, Annie is adorable! Sure, she has a speech issue but you have to wonder how much less prominent that would have been if she’d had a different mother. Third, well, just don’t miss this!

First Love

​It doesn’t matter how old your kids are, bribery works.
Michael Hamilton’s father wants to fix his relationship with Michael and isn’t above using an invitation to a Snow Valley wedding and certain attendance by Michael’s recently divorced high school sweetheart to get him back to town.
Michael refuses to stay longer than the wedding until he finds that Janet Snow really does need him. .. our does he just want to think she does.
And what is she hiding?

Review: WARNING! This is not a light and fun novella. This is an encompassing heart-wrenching saga. I don’t know how Ms. Hart packed all of that into those pages but… WOW!
** Definitely Christian Fiction **

Romancing Rebecca

​​Rebecca Dash, Becca, is floundering. She’s just finished college and has a few months break before grad school begins to figure our what she’s doing and what she wants.

The summer at her aunt’s bed and breakfast is the perfect place to think and, hopefully, enjoy her first romance. Trying to write a romance novel isn’t very easy for a girl who’s never even been kissed…. or on a date.

Except this isn’t as easy as it seems. Her first kiss is blah, the sexy firefighter doesn’t seem to be into her, and something weird is happening in her friendship with Nick. If only Becca could figure out this mystery!

Review: This is my favorite of the novellas! (I’ve said that about all of them haven’t I?)
Romancing Rebecca really pulled the entire set together and made Summer in Snow Valley a book. Plus, it was fun to watch Becca struggle with her relationships. She’s such a sweetie but really doesn’t get guys. 😉
