Publisher's Summary

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. But after the spring thaw, Jen leaves and returns to her life in Santa Fe and to the man who wants to marry her. All she knows of the woman who rescued her is her name... Ryan.

    Story
    "Good story, but craved a bit more 'depth.'"
    What made the experience of listening to Snow Falls the most enjoyable?

    "attention Spoiler alert" ...

    As a gay woman, I enjoyed this romance book as it was a lesbian love story. I enjoyed how the characters developed and grew as individuals and together. I wish the author didn't spend so much time on developing Jen and Ryan's 'friendship' and, instead, spent more time on developing their romantic connection and what happened afterwards. I think it was too easy of a 'fix' in the end - and though I did enjoy the ending - it just felt a bit too rushed for me. If there was a sequel or trilogy of these two and how their love manages in 'reality' that would have been nice.

    But, overall, I was pleased to see a well-written lesbian love story on audible that was not all about sex, however, when these two 'did' fall in love and decide to be with each other, I wish it had been less about their sexual intimacy and more emphasis placed on the other layers of intimacy they shared. I still have no idea if they have anything (other then sex) in common.

    A bit more depth and you would have had me crying with the ending. Also Jen's character never grew on me. She was a 'one note' character. Ryan, at least, became three-dimensional, eventually.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Snow Falls?

    When Ryan showed up at Jen's house unexpectedly and then left her after sex. It was a good bit. I liked how it showed depth in Ryan's character. It made her seem three-dimensional.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Sara Hawthorne?

    No. Hated her lack of skill in reading a book. She has no talent in voice 'acting.' All the characters sounded the same. She made Jen sound like she was stupid and 'slow.' Won't listen to her again, no matter what book she reads. Boring voice.


    If you could rename Snow Falls, what would you call it?

    I would have called it something that showed it was a love story. Some suggestion are:

    1. Breath of Love;
    2. Love's First Breath;
    3. Love's New Day;
    4. Falling on Snow;
    5. Tumbling Towards Love; or,
    6. Dear Ryan.


    Any additional comments?

    I will read this author again with a different narrator. I hope she has written some more lesbian fiction.

    Story
    "It's a "I remember when" feel good favourite !!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Snow Falls to be better than the print version?

    Great audio version ... Will read it more often this way too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The friends... The best ones in life do do stuff like that for you !!


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

    Can't decide as Sara was able to express each character with personality really well.


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

    It made me reminisce to earlier loves and the emotions of discovery.


    Any additional comments?

    It's only the first time I've read this book... and I'm looking forward to reading it a few more times too !
    Congrats Gerri Hill well done and thanks :-)

    Story
    "perfect for Colorado dreams"

    Women, love, fear, solitude, friendship - this book has all of this and more, but for me it is mostly about the mountains. The majestic awe of nature with its sights, sounds, smells and feel that makes this book awesome. For me it is really a menage-a-trois between two women and the Rockies.

    Story
    "The Author's Best"

    In the genre of most literary love stories two people who don't like each other much are forced into more togetherness than either of them would prefer. As they experience enforced contact with each other attraction begins to grow, affection follows and before you know it they are in love; and in bed. This of course occurs just as the time they have together comes to an end. Both women then fret over problems that exist almost fully in their own minds, so they're kept apart even as the love in their hearts continues growing.
    Despite the utter predictability of the plot this really is a marvelous love story. Part of it is due to the high mountain setting and Ryan's small simple cabin. Part of it is the tension the women feel as they begin to develop feelings they have only one outlet for and a reluctance to go there. In the one chapter where Ryan is with her family of origin; the interactions are both sad and funny. The only real down point in this really good story is one ridiculous idea in Ryan's mind that she repeats to herself like a mantra. Listen and enjoy.

    Story
    "Captivating, tender, passionate story."

    I loved this. I loved this so much. As a young queer woman it is always a joy to find a story that captures the tension, excitement, and tenderness of love between two women without resorting to voyeurism. The reader brought both characters into life with her skilled narration, and I was absorbed the whole time. The story also was effective in its divergence from the formulaic love story. While it was predictable on the whole, the plot twists within the narrative kept the element of surprise alive. I recommend this story to anyone and everyone (but especially to those in the queer community). Bravo.

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

    Entertaining, sexy, funny


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first time, well the only time in the story that Ryan and Jen made love. I thought that it was handled very well.


    If you could rename Snow Falls, what would you call it?

    Lost and Found


    Any additional comments?

    A very good story with some endearing characters. Ryan and Jen was super and the supporting cast was equally entertaining. Jen's first time with a woman was both sexy and funny. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Story much as expected, quality of recording bad"
    What made the experience of listening to Snow Falls the most enjoyable?

    The story was as expected, no surprises but a good lighthearted listen to pass the time. However, the recording was of poor quality engineering wise. Posted more on that below.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As a person who comes from and live in a rural area, I enjoyed the descriptions of the scenery, although pretty different from where I live I could relate to a lot of what was said.


    What three words best describe Sara Hawthorne’s voice?

    Hard to tell, seemed okay overall.


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

    Not really, not that type of book.


    Any additional comments?

    With regard to the narrator, it was hard to tell how good she was overall because frankly the recording sucked. It was tinny pretty much the whole way through, and there were sound echos at times. It didn't seem like it was a poor download, just a poor recording engineering wise. If that could be improved then the whole audio book would benefit. For that reason I'm glad it was one that wasn't too expensive to buy, so it wasn't too bad value for money. However, I can imagine it could put a lot of people off and that would be a shame for both author and narrator.

    "Lesbian Lovers"

    This book is mostly about unexpected lesbian lovers, including some rather explicit parts. This should be noted, since this is not in the description. There is minimal plot, but some heavy bedroom scenes.
