Snow Country by Kristin Neva
Beth Dawson was recently jilted by her fiance shortly before the wedding in California. To help deal with the heartbreak she feels, Beth heads to Michigan to visit her grandmother. Not only does she enjoy time with her grandmother, but Beth also meets a young attractive state trooper. Her mother wants her to stay single and to help her Grandmother to move to California. What does Beth want? Can Beth heal and move on in a new direction? Is it too soon? What about her rules for Christian courtship?
I enjoyed Snow Country and read it within a couple of days. Kristin Neva writes a novel that left me turning the pages quickly to find out the answers to those questions and more. I don't want to share the answers to those questions and spoil the plot. For her first novel, I think Neva has done an excellent job in drawing the reader in and making them feel at home with a lot of fun, lovable characters. I also liked that this novel offers history and information on the Upper Peninsula region of Michigan region.
Snow Country is book one in A Copper Island Novel series. I am looking forward to reading book 2A: Aimee and Russ's story that is due to be out this summer. I especially enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Christian romance and historical/regional novels.
Neva also wrote Heavy about life with her husband who has ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). You can find that review here: http://readingwritingandpondering.blogspot.com/2014/03/book-review-heavy-by-kristin-neva-and.html
I received a copy of Snow Country from Kristin Neva. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
