    Snowflake Bay

    I was so excited to read Fiona's story in the second installment of The Brides of Blueberry Cove. Love the romance in the small town. Fiona has returned home and is planning her sister's wedding. Ben has also returned to help at his family's Christmas tree farm. Ben was Fiona's schoolgirl crush, Ben now sees her differently from years ago. Loved the journey of their relationship growing, along with all of the family issues. A fast paced story that will leave you smiling for a long time. I could close my eyes and feel like I was in Snowflake Bay. I highly recommend this book. I received a copy from Netgalley for an honest review.

    Snowflake Bay

    I really enjoyed being back in Blueberry Cove in Snowflake Bay by Donna Kauffman. It is a place I'd love to be, and Donna's descriptive writing makes it easy to envision and easy to feel the cold winter weather! Fiona is back in her home town of Blueberry Cove to start her business fresh, and do what she wants to do. As she tries to settle in, she is also planning her sister's Christmas wedding. Fiona is busy, and the last person she expects to run into again is Ben, her brother's friend. The person she always secretly loved. He is an unexpected complication in her new life, because some feelings really don't go away! Ben is back in Blueberry Cove temporarily. He has family issues and a family business to deal with, and is definitely not looking for any other complications! Suddenly though the Fiona he's always thought of as just his friends little sister is looking like so much more. They have a history of teasing and name calling, haven't seen each other for a long time, and these new feelings are ruling Ben's mind. As they both struggle with issues past and present, a new kind of relationship starts to form. With angst, family interference, and the chance of a future so remote, will they take that leap of faith and take a chance on each other? Watching Ben and Fiona together as adults was an interesting journey. I liked that they already knew each other, and they have more in common in the present day than they think. Both of them are dealing with big life changes and uncertainties. I really liked both of these characters. They are both strong, independent, and caring. I liked learning about who they were and their current circumstances, their feelings, and how they were each trying to cope with such big, real life issues. I will be honest and say that I found it a bit much that there seemed to be a lot of fixation on elements of their past relationship as young teenagers, and I felt like parts of this got blown way out of proportion and took over too much of the story of Ben and Fiona. This was a bit distracting and I felt like it took away from the adults they are now. However once this was put more on the back burner, the plot was easier to fall back into and enjoy their journey to the future, what ever it might hold. I really liked Fiona's family, I felt like they really showed strength, loyalty, and love. They made me want to be part of this family! They are all very much a part of Fiona and Ben's story, and I liked how these characters are woven into the plot. They are all strong secondary characters and I can't wait to read more about Fiona's sister Kerry! Snowflake Bay is well paced and Donna's writing is smooth and easy to read. Not a typical Christmas book, Snowflake Bay is a great winter time read to curl up with that I'd recommend to any romance reader.

    Fantastic

    This second book in the Brides of Blueberry Cove is fantastic! This is a wonderful small town romance that gives us Fiona and Ben's story. They've known each other their whole lives. She was always his best friends little sister but there is nothing little about her now! They both left Blueberry Cove but Fiona has moved back to work at a slower pace in a style that is truly her. She's done with city living. Ben is back due to family illness. He doesn't plan on staying but selling the family tree farm just doesn't seem right. Add to that his attraction to Fiona and what they could possibly have and staying is looking better, but he has a business that has really taken off. Can they find a compromise that will make everyone happy? I highly recommend this one.

    emotional yet always fun

    I’ll admit, I’ve been avidly waiting for this novel since we met Fiona in the 1st Brides of Blueberry Cove novel. I’d built it up so much in my mind that I was a little worried, but Kauffman didn’t disappoint me with this excitingly romantic tale, not even for a second. Kauffman writes with a smooth, easy going style that conveys the feeling of this small coastal town. The narrative brings the town and its people to life while the descriptions create the perfect backdrop. I really enjoyed the multiplicity of things that are going on it this story. The characters balanced their own lives with what is going on in their families, health issues vied with work. At the same time, the budding relationship was so sweet, yet not always easy. I felt a connection with Fiona’s character from the very beginning. She was fun and funny without being over the top. I found the fact that she wasn’t perfect, that her life was in transition, while also being exactly what she wanted reassuring. It made it so much easier to identify with her. Ben was also a great character to lead this tale. In transition, but of a less optional sort he finds himself questioning things he’d never thought of before. At the same time, his helpful, caring personality shines through, without detracting from the strong, outdoorsy quality that is essential to who he is. The supporting cast in this story was also a lot of fun to get to know. Whether you’ve met them in previous Blueberry Cove novels or just meeting them now, Kauffman develops them in such a manner that I really felt as if I knew them. I loved the close knit relationships that Kauffman develops throughout this novel. Family, friends, and those in between all play a major role in everyone’s lives. This was a lovely, emotional, yet always fun and funny novel that allowed me to escape from the everyday into its pages. But Kauffman did leave me with one question at the end, what will Kerry get up to next? Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

    The heart wants what it wants...

    The heart wants what it wants is an adage that fits this story perfectly. Fiona left home with a broken heart in need of a fresh start. Sick of living in her sisters shadow and pining for the boy she would never have. Years later she returns and realizes nothing has changed. The reasons she left still exist. Snowflake Bay is a romance that entails more than just a relationship that was never given a chance to flourish. It is a look at the relationship between two sisters. A beautiful story that is full of heart and is a wonderful holiday read.
