Publisher's Summary

When the sheriff is murdered, his son is asked to take his place.

Bobby Trent is a semi-retired rodeo cowboy and the son of a highly respected law officer. When his father, the sheriff, is murdered, Trent is asked to fulfill the remaining months of his term in office. Sheriff Bobby Trent; nobody would have guessed it, but it should be an easy enough task; drink a little coffee, maybe lead a parade. Easy work until he is healthy enough to return to the circuit.  

A dead body with no clues

Then, the body of a young woman is discovered face down in the Montana snow. No signs of foul play, no reason for her to be there, and no tracks as to where she came from. Besides the unexplained death, someone is stealing stock from the local ranches and if the owners have their way, that someone is going to hang. Add to that, an out of state reporter trying to stir up a story about a missing girl of some 25 years earlier. Bobby is quickly finding out being Sheriff is more than handing out traffic tickets.

Snow Drift is the latest novel from award-winning, best-selling author, Kwen Griffeth! If you love Longmire, if you are a crime, fiction, or mystery fan, you won’t want to miss this thrill ride!

Could Not Stop Listening

I would of finished this book in one sitting, except I did have to get my rest for traveling the next day. Instead it was listened in two straight sittings. I could not pull away from it!

This is a FANTASTIC western mystery. First off the plot moved constantly. The story never dragged and it held my interest the whole time. The characters are likeable in that none of them are perfect. The character development is perfection in this book as well. The characters change but you see it in their actions. The Native American parts reminded me of the Longmire show. I will be picking up more in the series! One of the best mysteries I have read/listened to in a long time.

Paul J McSorley has a perfect book for this narration. He has very clear character voices as well, which makes for an easier and less confusing listen compared to some other audiobooks.

I received this audiobook at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Incredible!

Snow Blind by Kwen D Griffeth is full of surprises! I loved this book with all of its twists, the vivid imagery, and the sheriff. Paul J McSorley did a fantastic job bringing the characters to life with his distinguishable voices. Without giving away spoilers, I loved the surprise at the end. I had not expected the killer to be who it was. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will most definitely listen to more books by this talented author and narrator.

Great story. Where does the next book take Bobby?

I want to start off by saying I enjoyed this book, and thought it was a good story. I loved the first book of this series and was really excited to get into this one. The beginning started off great with Bobby in his new role, trying to fill some rather large shoes. He takes problems head on in the manner that you’d expect Bobby to do which would to be expected. Through the beginning and middle of the book I was hooked wanting to hear how the book would end. Once I got to the end I wouldn’t say I’m disappointed in the slightest, just interested in how Bobby took the path he did. Again, without giving anything away I’d say the big choice he made in the end took away his honor, and I’m not sure how much I trust Bobby going forward. But, with that being said I am honestly still excited to hear the next installment in this series. I want to see how his decision affects Bobby, if it will at all. Will it change him in any way? Is it something he will dwell on from here on out? I am excited to find out. Also, I want to say Paul McSorley did another great job with his narration. Hope to hear his voice for the next book in this series.

Big Country, Big Story

I tend to think that old west style justice doesn't exist in the present day, but in Montana's Big Sky Country there's quite a lot of the old west still alive. I started listening to this book, then decided I needed to get book one and listen to the series in order. Both books were great, and in Snow Blind it is enjoyable to experience Bobby's unconventional methods for dealing with crimes that occur in his county. With very few sheriffs, there's a lot of wild country to cover that provides solitude, harshness, beauty, and out of the way places to hide bodies.

The characters and storyline are well-done and Paul McSorley does a great job with the narration. I'm looking forward to more of the series with Sheriff Bobby Trent and the cast of characters in the Big Sky series.

I received a promotional copy of this book and this is my honest review.

I enjoyed this western mystery very much.


I enjoyed this western mystery very much. The characters were appealing, especially Bobby. Bobby does not believe he is sheriff material, but he slowly grows into the role. He shows courage, determination, honesty, and empathy. Bobby shows an interest in reconciliation when possible and hands out retribution when needed.

I did not have difficulty with his attraction to several women. He did not act upon his attraction with these women. He was honest about PERHAPS taking up the offer from one of the women. I think we need to see what develops down the line. I am hoping for a solid romance to develop.

The mystery was absorbing and complex. The plot is well done with excellent character development. I do not usually request a second book if I have not read the first in the series. I would like to have read the first, but I am very glad I asked for this second book. I was drawn in, and I am looking forward to seeing these characters again!

Superb entertainment

Snow Blind: Big Sky Series, Book 2. I love this series but then I am a fan of the authors books and style.
He writes amazing and gripping stories about people and their interactions whilst weaving a great police mystery in.
Not one crime but 3 or 4. And it is seem less and smooth.
I read the e-book when it first came out about a month ago, and thought it is superb.. So then I listened to this audiobook
I can say the narrator Paul.J McSorley, certainly adds something to the book , He is clear and very easy to listen too.
An excellent book + great narration = 5 star entertainment.

Mystery

I really liked the narrator I thought he suited this book really well and I was able to follow him.
The book I liked except for the main character who confused me. I can see his character change as the book progressed which I thought the author did really well. I have not come across many books where you can see the change without being told as the book progresses.
My confusion is his love for women. He is attracted to any beautiful women. He wants his old childhood sweetheart and he tries to show her he has changed. Ironically one of the reason she left him was because he was not faithful and in here he seems to forget about her and move onto the next woman which he tells that it is not the right time for them to be together. Than he meets a third woman he is more than happy to sleep with (which he does not do since they get interupted). If it was me I would not go with him if I wanted a long term relationship. To me it shows that he cannot stay faithful to one woman. Yet women are falling over themselves to be noticed by him. I know he wants to change and I see the change except in this area and it looks to me like he does not see what he is doing, if he wants to win a woman for a long term relationship (which I feel like he wants), is wrong. And when one of the woman talks to him about it I felt like he did not feel any remorse, he did not think about it again (internally) after the conversation they had and I got the impression if a woman did come on to him he would have taken her.
For me the romance could have been done a lot better.
I know I talked about it a lot but we see it a few time through out the book so it sticks out like a sore thumb. However, I did give it four stars because I listened to it from beginning to end. For an author to get me to do this deserves that many stars.

Strong plot and narration

The story is compelling and the writing is very good. The author smoothly brings together several story lines while describing a vast rural Montana setting, so I felt very caught up and involved in the story. There is an array of believable, complex characters, and the cultural conflicts with the Native Americans seem to be presented faithfully. The mysteries drive the plot on and make it hard to stop listening,

This book is neither high literature or pure entertainment. None of the characters are completely likable, and there is some disturbing trivialization of violence against one of the female characters in the book, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend this for light listening.

I received a free download of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
