After spending two months together, they form an unlikely friendship that deepens even further. But after the spring thaw, Jen leaves and returns to her life in Santa Fe and to the man who wants to marry her. All she knows of the woman who rescued her is her name... Ryan.

Good story, but craved a bit more 'depth.'

What made the experience of listening to Snow Falls the most enjoyable?

"attention Spoiler alert" ...

As a gay woman, I enjoyed this romance book as it was a lesbian love story. I enjoyed how the characters developed and grew as individuals and together. I wish the author didn't spend so much time on developing Jen and Ryan's 'friendship' and, instead, spent more time on developing their romantic connection and what happened afterwards. I think it was too easy of a 'fix' in the end - and though I did enjoy the ending - it just felt a bit too rushed for me. If there was a sequel or trilogy of these two and how their love manages in 'reality' that would have been nice.

But, overall, I was pleased to see a well-written lesbian love story on audible that was not all about sex, however, when these two 'did' fall in love and decide to be with each other, I wish it had been less about their sexual intimacy and more emphasis placed on the other layers of intimacy they shared. I still have no idea if they have anything (other then sex) in common.

A bit more depth and you would have had me crying with the ending. Also Jen's character never grew on me. She was a 'one note' character. Ryan, at least, became three-dimensional, eventually.

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

When Ryan showed up at Jen's house unexpectedly and then left her after sex. It was a good bit. I liked how it showed depth in Ryan's character. It made her seem three-dimensional.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Sara Hawthorne?

No. Hated her lack of skill in reading a book. She has no talent in voice 'acting.' All the characters sounded the same. She made Jen sound like she was stupid and 'slow.' Won't listen to her again, no matter what book she reads. Boring voice.

If you could rename Snow Falls, what would you call it?

I would have called it something that showed it was a love story. Some suggestion are:

1. Breath of Love;
2. Love's First Breath;
3. Love's New Day;
4. Falling on Snow;
5. Tumbling Towards Love; or,
6. Dear Ryan.

Any additional comments?

I will read this author again with a different narrator. I hope she has written some more lesbian fiction.

Omg best book ever

I really loves this story. it had a great flow to it. very engaging and realistic in a lot of areas.
I did feel it could of been longer and some areas really didn't need to be there . However this is a must read for anyone who loves romance.
update... I can't get enough, this is such a romantic book I have read it over and over.. the ending.. I have so had that feeling, and there is nothing like it.

Story much as expected, quality of recording bad

What made the experience of listening to Snow Falls the most enjoyable?

The story was as expected, no surprises but a good lighthearted listen to pass the time. However, the recording was of poor quality engineering wise. Posted more on that below.

What did you like best about this story?

As a person who comes from and live in a rural area, I enjoyed the descriptions of the scenery, although pretty different from where I live I could relate to a lot of what was said.

What three words best describe Sara Hawthorne’s voice?

Hard to tell, seemed okay overall.

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

Not really, not that type of book.

Any additional comments?

With regard to the narrator, it was hard to tell how good she was overall because frankly the recording sucked. It was tinny pretty much the whole way through, and there were sound echos at times. It didn't seem like it was a poor download, just a poor recording engineering wise. If that could be improved then the whole audio book would benefit. For that reason I'm glad it was one that wasn't too expensive to buy, so it wasn't too bad value for money. However, I can imagine it could put a lot of people off and that would be a shame for both author and narrator.

Emotionally Fantastic

I could not stop listening, well into the small hours of the morning. Overwhelmingly good story that keeps you in their world. The cliche synopsis does nothing to reveal the beautiful relationship development and engrossing story between Ryan and Jen. I loved it and highly recommend using a credit.
The narrator does a good job with voices that are clear and easy to listen too.
