Never fall in love with your best friend’s little sister…

Contractor and army reservist Jake Foster fell in love with Dani Minelli when she was a colt-legged high school senior. He knew he was too old to even look at her, let alone touch.

Dani’s been trying to get his attention since returning to Pine Harbour a grown woman—and failing miserably at every turn.

This winter, everything is going to change. And when the snow stops falling, Jake and Dani won’t be able to hide from their attraction any longer.

(Yes, once again I joined a series after it started but luckily for me it didn’t matter 🙂  There was some mention to previous actions and I think we pick up basically where the first book left off, but enough information is provided that you can easily keep up.)

York does a fantastic job here with her characters.  Both are well developed and their confusion & hesitation is reasonable considering their history – they do a fantastic job addressing timing issues and romantic histories and what could happen when others find out how they feel.  They are such a great couple, with feelings based on a lot of years together.  I love how comfortable they are together and how their relationship develops so smoothly out of that.  

My only complaint is that Jake’s history in the military (and his last deployment) is glossed over.  There is talk about how it changed him but we don’t get the details and I think that might be a path that was missed.  Not having read the first book I’m not sure if this came up before but it seemed like a loose thread here.  With a lot of their friends and family in the same unit though it could come up again later so I guess I’ll just have to keep reading to find out 🙂

Sexy and sweet and funny, York packs a lot into Love in a Snow Storm – beautifully capturing small town life and the hardships that can come from falling in love in a little community.  She also gives us a great set of supporting characters, who not only add extra depth to the story but also wonderfully set up possible of future stories.
