What made the experience of listening to Snow on the Mountain the most enjoyable?
The character and relationship development between Jake and Kurt.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Snow on the Mountain?
The scene in the cabin with the bed and the fire. Very passionate and sexy.
What about Finn Sterling’s performance did you like?
That it got better than the first book in this series. Sterling used the same tones for Jake and Kurt, but those subtle nuances and inflections were there this time.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes it was, and I did.
Any additional comments?
Jake Landon and Kurt Carlson are still learning the basics of being in a relationship. They spent the entire summer under the stars in the Colorado Mountains and quickly went from friends and co-workers to lovers. Now they’ve traded in their ranger uniforms for parkas and ski’s for their new home, new jobs at the exclusive Wapiti Creek Ski Resort. Forest fires have been replaced by jealous co-workers, misplaced affections and a secret the resort keeps that threatens Jake and Kurt’s still fragile relationship.
While there were still a few plot holes and unbelievable aspects to this story, I really enjoyed it far more than the first in this series. The character development and storyline were stronger, as were the secondary characters, and the descriptives in this story were more visually attainable for me. There is no question that Jake and Kurt love each other, it is the day to day aspects of being a couple they are having trouble dealing with. Jake isn’t in the closet per say, but he won’t love Kurt openly, and this causes a bit of a strain. But at the end of the day they know what they mean to each other and Kurt is frustrated, but infinitely patient.
The narration was so much better this time around as well. Singer stuck with Finn Sterling who had a few issues telling the first story, in my opinion, but with this story he found his footing. While he still used the same tone for Jake and Kurt, there were subtle inflections and nuances in this story that weren’t there before. Almost like Sterling had to get acquainted with the characters before he could really give them a voice.
Full of emotion, danger and just the right amount of fluff, Snow on the Mountain is a fast, fun, thrill ride down the sometimes rocky slope of love. I’d recommend this read to all my fellow hopeless romantics.

In book one we meet Jake and Kurt and this is their continued story. They’ve been living together and working for the past 5 months and though they are pretty secure in their love for each other, they haven’t said the “L” word out loud. Jake is still a bit in the closet and this can be frustrating for Kurt, especially when Jake inadvertently leads on one of his co-workers!
PD Singer does another fantastic job describing the life and times at a ski resort. Having grown up on the slopes of Colorado myself, I really felt the descriptions, terminology and scenes developed there were accurate and put the reader right there in the snow with the guys.
The romance between Kurt and Jake is both hot (their romantic scenes are blazing!) and appropriately mundane as they learn how to be a couple. I enjoyed watching them mature as a couple and liked that we got both Kurt and Jake’s POV. I loved the ending and the cute little bonus story!
As far as the “action” part of the story- there are scheming ski bunnies, European gangsters, an avalanche, daring rescues, clingy kids, hot-to-trot co-workers, an escort service- it was a bit much. Though it was sometimes handled with humor (much appreciated) it still felt a bit too “Dynasty” at times.
All in all I am still really enjoying the series, love Kurt and Jake as a couple, am excited to keep reading about Kurt and Jake and their adventures and think PD Singer does a great job with writing full, complex characters and is excellent at setting the scene.
4.0 of 5 stars
Finn Sterling does a terrific job with the narration. He gives the Europeans nice accents, adds nice inflections to the emotional and exciting scenes and handles the strange words very well. I think his children’s voices are good, but didn’t like his female characters very much.
I think listening to this book is the best way to experience it.
