This book was my first Brenda Novak and it made me a fan, particularly of this series, as it helped through a challenging holiday season. When my real-life, nail-biter situation of two friends in the hospital woke me in the middle of the night, I read When Snow Falls under the covers with my flashlight (so as not to wake dear hubby). The combination is perfect:

  • Compelling page turner
  • Cozy white Christmas
  • Good and not-so-good but very realistic characters

I love Cheyenne. I feel like I would make every decision Chey makes and feel every feeling that Chey feels, if I were in her circumstances. One time, after she did something, she said, “That was so colossally stupid.” I love that line! I could see myself doing that very thing and then slapping my forehead and saying that.

There’s a juicy twist, partway in, that I didn’t see coming at all!

All that and a satisfying end. Who needs whiskey when you can have Whiskey Creek?

  1. Great review! That is a fun expression and one I bet the author had fun making up.
    Thanks for sharing. I hope your friends fared well through their hospitalizations…That is stressful.


    1. Thank you so much, Susie. Yes, they both pulled through. One is all better and safely ensconced across the street from me. The other is half way through 100 days of a transplant process. Not quite out of the woods but hopefully getting there.

      It sure helps to have an escape in books, eh? Think what a service we are providing!
