When I finished reading WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES I was left wanting more and WHEN SNOW FALLS picked up where WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES left off. Brenda Novak writes in such a way that you can read the last page of WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES and transition smoothly into WHEN SNOW FALLS. The telling of Cheyenne's and Dylan's story was written in a way that you saw it grow from just a rose bud into a perfect long stem rose. There love was the purest of all love. Brenda Novak tells the background story of the hard knocks of both Dylan and Cheyenne in such symmetry that you come to understand why they don't trust their feelings at first. They want to stay with what’s safe not with what’s true. Dylan's the rebel, the trouble maker in the eyes of Cheyenne's friends but they'll come to learn you can't judge a book by its cover. There is a sub-story in WHEN SNOW FALLS which is that of Presley, Cheyenne's older sister, and Aaron Amos, Dylan's brother. As we Cheyenne's and Dylan's story unfolds Brenda Novak sets you up for the next. WHEN SNOW FALLS is full of surprises and new characters will be introduced. I highly recommend this book to readers that enjoy a good love story between a prim and proper woman and the man from the wrong side of the tracks. You'll truly love Cheyenne's and Dylan's story. Keep a Kleenex handy.

    I so loved the novella and first book in this series, but this book fell way short of the others. I kept reading the description for the book because as it turns out, we're not introduced to Dylan, the hero of the book, until Chapter 9!!! I was really convinced this was going to be Cheyenne and Joe's story. That would have been a great progression of the series since book 1 was about Joe's sister. I didn't find the romance of Dylan and Cheyenne believable at all, especially given the long, slow set up of Cheyenne, Eve, and Joe. It felt like she was writing one story, then decided to change course and write something else.

    I think this series has a lot of potential. The problem I see is that way too many characters have been introduced and way too many future books have been set up, but do not appear to be anywhere near to being written and/or published. I would expect the next books to involve Presley/Aaron, Joe, or Eve, but instead the next two books involve none of them as the main characters. Instead, each book is going to introduce even more new people. So much is mentioned, hinted at, and touched on, but it is both overwhelming and frustrating because answers are not forthcoming. This book also included Kyle Houseman from the novella that began the series, but while they hinted he's divorced, no detail around what happened and no update on Olivia, the lead of that story. Given the open ending of Presley and Aaron's story, I'm curious when that will ever see closure.

    Maybe after a few more books this series will find its rhythm, but until then for a small town series, I would recommend Susan Mallery's Fools Gold series before this one.
