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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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!

    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.

    "A rare romance - kept me guessing for a long time"
    Any additional comments?

    With most romances the fates our heroes are known within the first few moments. No so here. The emotional plotting was satisfyingly complex. If you want a romance novel, this is one of the best choices.

    "Not my favorite"

    As a romance this book is just mundane. The heroine is weak and the friction between characters doesn't work. If you have a bunch of extra credits laying around go ahead and spend them. Otherwise, skip it.

    I liked this book however, I was somewhat confused in the beginning in terms of the love interest. I don't want to give anything away with an explanation to that. In the end it all turns out hunky dory.

    "Not as Good as When Lightening Strikes"
    Would you recommend When Snow Falls to your friends? Why or why not?

    I was disappointed in When Snow Falls after listening to When Lightening Strikes. It was a bit a drag. I finished it out and I'm glad I did, but the story line was a little depressing. I just kept wanting the story to get on with it and come to the satisfactory resolution.

    "Highly recommend this reading!"
    What did you love best about When Snow Falls?

    I liked the honesty exhibited by all of the characters. This trait helped the storyline become more believable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Cheyenne because she was honest about her thoughts and feelings, even when she was struggling with her decisions.


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

    I think her performance was very good. She handled each characters' voice in an artful manner.


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

    No, I did not have an extreme reaction to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the story-line climaxes was predictable, but overall, this is a fun read!
