    Jennifer Kincaid, on her way to a writer's workshop in the Colorado mountain town of Lake City, gets lost and is stranded by an avalanche. Catherine Ryan-Barrett, running from the fame and fortune of her family name, wants nothing more to spend the winter alone and sequestered in her high mountain cabin. She is not prepared for a party crasher. After spending two months together, they form an unlikely friendship that deepens even further.

    Story
    If you could sum up Snow Falls in three words, what would they be?

    Girl re-awakes Girl.


    What other book might you compare Snow Falls to and why?

    Vaguely, this book reminds me of Facades by Alex Marcoux, in that two women are brought together with no idea that later they will develop an attraction for each other.


    Which character – as performed by Sara Hawthorne – was your favorite?

    Even though I'm probably more like Ryan, I enjoyed Jen in this audiobook.


    If you could take any character from Snow Falls out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Who else but Jen?


    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook was a smooth progression into a romance between two unlikely characters. It was nothing in it that hit you over the head with drama. Instead, the budding romance between the two main characters sneaked up on you, and had you pulling for them to get together. There is character development, which I love, over smack you in the face drama at every turn. Even though, there are some spots of drama in it, it is just a nice read that will have you smiling at the end of the book.

    Annice, Pat, and Barby are best friends from Iowa, freshly arrived in booming 1950s Chicago to explore different paths toward independence, self - expression, and sexual freedom. From the hip-hang of a bohemian lifestyle to the sophisticated lure of romance with a handsome, wealthy, married boss to the happier security of a lesbian relationship, these three experience firsthand the dangers and limitations of women’s economic -reliance on men.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Girls in 3-B again? Why?

    The beginning starts with three young girls who move to the big bad city together from a smaller town. Each is different, and grow in different ways. The story lets you in of the three main characters personalities and their interaction between each other and other people. Because there is an assortment of characters, a second or third listen would probably show some things missed before, and/or the story is so adequately done that a second read would be enjoyable just for the pure enjoyment of listening to a well developed story written from another area. You can see where some things have changed, and some have not. The answer is yes, I would listen to this story again.


    What other book might you compare The Girls in 3-B to and why?

    Actually, this audiobook is a first of this type category for me in that there are three main characters who stories come from a different area.


    Have you listened to any of Julie McKay’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but she did an excellent job because there were so many characters in this story in which she had to give a different voice to. It was amazing to me that she pulled it off so well that you knew who was talking from the voice she assigned to each character.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I don't think that it was really a funny or tear-jerker type book, but I suppose there were some humorous moments. It was mostly a character driven book in that it let you in on the lives of the three girls, of whom were the main characters. It more or less showed how they came into their own to find out basically who they really were. There were a few moments where you might have wanted to be in the story, and strangle a few people for them. That was not so much a laughing or crying reaction, but I suppose it is a reaction of some sort.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book because there were so many facets in it. It was mostly character driven. At the end, it seems to sum up that three young naive girls from a small town and from a different area go to the big city to be all that they can be grow into themselves.
