When Snow Falls: Whiskey Creek, Book 2 | [Brenda Novak]

When Snow Falls: Whiskey Creek, Book 2

After growing up in cheap motels, moving from town to town with her sister and mother, Cheyenne Christensen is grateful to be on her own. She’s grateful, too, for the friends she found once her family settled in California. But she’s troubled by the mystery of her earliest memories, most of which feature a smiling blonde woman. A woman who isn’t her mother. Although Cheyenne has repeatedly asked for explanations, the people who could help aren’t talking.

Publisher's Summary

After growing up in cheap motels, moving from town to town with her sister and mother, Cheyenne Christensen is grateful to be on her own. She’s grateful, too, for the friends she found once her family settled in California. But she’s troubled by the mystery of her earliest memories, most of which feature a smiling blonde woman. A woman who isn’t her mother.

Although Cheyenne has repeatedly asked for explanations, the people who could help aren’t talking. Cheyenne is set on finding answers, but without so much as a birth certificate, it won’t be easy.Things get even more complicated when her closest friend is attracted to the man Cheyenne has secretly loved for years. For Eve’s sake, she decides to step aside — which lands her right in the arms of Dylan Amos, oldest and baddest of the hell-raising Amos brothers. He’s the kind of guy she’s sworn to avoid. She can’t afford to make a mistake, not when she finally has a chance to learn who she really is and change her life for the better. But… maybe there’s more to Dylan than she thought. Maybe letting him go would be a bigger mistake.

    "Another great book"

    This book was great, Brenda Novak is able to write the many dimensions in relationships. It was well worth the listen. Tara Sands does well with the character voice changes, although there was a few threads that were confusing, all in all she did well. The story was a great addition to the Whiskey Creek series. This book made me laugh, and cry. I do recommend this listen and author. It is worth the credit and has a average length.

    Story
    "When Snow Falls"

    First I want to say that I beleive all romantic novels should have a happy ending. Yes, the main characters do get a happy ending, but not so for quite a few of the supporting cast. Maybe this is for future stories and maybe not. In any case it left me feeling a little incomplete come the end of the story. I do feel that the first half of the book dragged on a bit. And for being chacters in their 30s it felt like a lot of teenage angst! I rolled my eyes a few times at this as there are scenes where I just wanted to yell "Make up your mind!" Maybe the main character just wasn't strong enough for me. For someone who went through a hell of a childhood and is doing a good job of surviving and striving in many ways, the main character is weak in so many other ways. The narrator did a pretty good job on voices, but her flow was really slow... making a book I already felt was dragging go even slower. I feel this book could be condensed to make a better book, but overall it wasn't bad.

    "How did this get such a high rating"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book was boring filled with too many characters. I will not read another by this author


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Nothing. I get very frustrated when the reviews are over a four star rating and the book is awful. There are so many good books out there that are truly worth the rating of this book


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    She was too monotoned


    Could you see When Snow Falls being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Never


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely needed better editing and story

    Story
    "Conflicted (SPOILER ALERT!!)"

    I just began this series and think I will love it.
    But, I'm probably the only one that wants Joe and Cheyenne together. I thought that was where this was headed but then they introduced Dylan. I'm sorry, but for a woman in her 30's that waited for the right person (took her over 20yrs to have a meal with Joe who she claimed to love all her life) she hops immediately in bed with Dylan? not believable. Also, at the end she said she loves Dylan, accepts his proposal of marriage yet she has no clue who she is as a person. She just found her real family for goodness sakes. She's going from living with a kidnapper to marrying Dylan. Lastly, you can NOT begin a relationship based on a lie!!! I don't care who your covering for. This is not a little white lie but a major omission on her part. Especially since she grew up not knowing her parents and now she's letting her niece/nephew go through the same thing? Chey is encouraging bad behavior from an immature sister that needs to take responsibility for her actions. I know this will all come out but I just hope the talented Brenda Novak doesn't make this neat and tidy. I also hope she gives two characters who belong together forever (Joe&Chey) a chance.

    "Cute."
    Would you listen to When Snow Falls again? Why?

    Probably not. I'm not a person who re-reads many books. It was an enjoyable book though.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The switch of romantic interest was interesting and I liked it. Although, Cheyenne jumping right into bed after being hit on in the park, after saving her virginity for so long struck me as off and a weird thing to do, but after the book progressed it became clear he really cared for her even before hitting on her. I also had trouble with the parts with her friends plotting an intervention while on a cruise before ever meeting the guy and basing their judgments on rumors. They really pissed me off.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The book was a rollercoaster of emotions and I liked that. It def made me want to listen to it all in one sitting, just to see how she handled all the problems she introduced. I could almost guess who she'd end up with, but for a while there I wasn't sure, and that is a good thing in the world of cookie cutter romance books.

    Story
    "Good, but difficult story line"

    First let me say I normally love Brenda Novak's books. This one is about two sisters who grew up in horrible circumstances with a negligent (to say the least) mother. Cheyenne, the younger daughter, is desperately trying to make an honest worthwhile life for herself in Whiskey Creek, but has serious doubts about whether her dying mother is really her biological mother. She has two love interests in the story and I hated the way she treated one of them (Dylan) - assuming since he had a troubled adolescence and he lived on the wrong side of the tracks, that he wasn't good enough for her. I couldn't understand why Dylan didn't tell her to get lost multiple times in this book.

    On the other hand, Cheyenne's sister, Presley, succumbs to easy sex, drugs and living a life more like their mother's. Her part of the story is hard to listen to. Cheyenne's group of friends are annoying busybodies more than caring friends in this book. Despite all these negative elements, I couldn't stop listening to see what happened with the characters. I thought the narrator did a good job as well.

    "Couldn't stop listening!"
    What did you love best about When Snow Falls?

    The characters were down-to-earth every day people, dealing with real life every day issues.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The honesty of the moral conflicts the main character was dealing with.


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

    I don't think I have listened to this narrator before but she did a great job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    He had me with the three-legged puppy!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the story line, loved the characters, loved the narration! Buying book 3 in the series with my next credit!

    "Another great Whiskey Creek Story"

    Chayene and Dillion... what a couple and what a story. I sure wish all of the Whiskey Creek series was on Audible! Tara did an excellent job of portraying all of the characters of Whiskey Creek!

    "I liked it"
    Where does When Snow Falls rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Brenda Novak's books. This did not disappoint.


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

    I liked the story...I just got annoyed with the friends.


    What does Tara Sands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I wasn't sure about the voice at first but throughout the book I did enjoy the inflections.
