Publisher's Summary

In the charming Lake Harriet neighborhood in Minneapolis, MN, where we first met Kristen, Ryan, and their beloved dog, Sam, in Walking Sam, we meet another couple who are struggling to find true love.

Mallory Dawson is planning the winter wedding of her dreams. She's found a wonderful man to share her life with and is looking forward to a promising future together. But one month before her wedding, she runs into the man she once loved, who she hasn't seen in 10 years. Soon, her entire life is turned upside-down.

James Gallagher fled to California 10 years ago to start over after the love of his life, Mallory, refused to marry him. But when his dad passes away and his mother becomes ill, he returns home to help run the family business. Seeing Mallory again brings a flood of memories back, and he begins to wonder what his life would have been like if he hadn't left.

Will the wedding go on or will fate play a hand in Mallory's happily ever after?

A feel good romance!

I loved this story. Simply stated, it gave me everything I wanted from a romance. The characters were well developed and the plot believable. There was only one thing at the very end that I found far-fetched, but it was a minor detail and didn’t detract from the story. I found myself rooting for Mallory and James, two truly good people who were meant to be together. The tension waiting for these two to finally admit their feelings drove me to clean out all my closets so I could keep listening. There are few books I re-read or listen to again, but this will be one of them.
The narrator did a beautiful job playing out the roles and her natural voice was very pleasant.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a feel good romance.

A Sweet Holiday Themed Read

This is the first book by this author I have read/listened to. The narration is beautifully done and the descriptive words of the author are beautifully written. Ms. Sletten writes likable characters and situations that pull the reader into the story. Second chance romances are one of my favorite tropes and this one is done well.
Mallory's heart was crushed by her first love who left after she rejected his proposal. Not that she didn't want to marry James eventually but his impatience caused his departure.
Fast forward ten years. Mallory finds herself a month from her New Year's Eve wedding and thrown back into James's orbit. What follows is a journey of self-discovery by Mallory, James and even her fiancé Brent. This is a sweet story of rediscovering who you are and your true emotions despite thinking you have stored them away safely and moved on. There are a few unique twists along the way to the HEA and the ending is sweetly satisfying. If you like second chance and sweet romance this story is for you

Sweet Winter Romance

I listened to As the Snow Fell after reading a depressing book. Perfect timing, as this sweet winter romance was just what I needed to improve my mood. It's set in the same neighborhood as Walking Sam. If you liked Walking Sam, you'll love As the Snow Fell.

A sweet, heartwarming romance

As the Snow Fell is a sweet, heartwarming contemporary romance about love and second chances. The narrator has a pleasant voice and does a nice job.

I received a complimentary copy of this audio book. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Great second chance story

This is a great story about a second chance for love. James proposed to Mallory 10 years ago and she turned him down. She wanted to wait and he didn't so he left town. Now he's back and she's engaged and ready to marry Brent. When Mallory and James see each other, old feelings start to come back. She starts to see how Brent and his family are rich and snobby. She's more down to earth like James. But will she go through with the wedding anyway since all the plans, deposits and everyone is in town for the wedding? This is the first book that I've listened to from Deanna Lynn Sletten but hopefully not the last. I thought Jennifer Groberg did a wonderful narration.
