Review of Snowflake Bay by Donna Kauffman

 Brief Summary:

Blueberry Cove has always had a special place in Fiona McCrae's heart as it will always be her hometown. But when she graduated from college she dreamed of something more. So she started her own shop in Manhattan serving high end clients and living the life that she always thought she wanted. However, her goals change and she decides to move home. The last thing she thought she would see again was Ben Campbell, her childhood crush. Will Fi be able to ignore and not pay attention to the boy that she felt she loved so many years ago or will her heart take her somewhere different. 

The last time Ben Campbell saw Fi she was just a high school girl who was the kid sister to his best buddy. But fast forward an now she is a bombshell that he can't take his eyes off. Problem is now she wants nothing to do with him. Will Ben be able to have Fi see him as more than the immature high school boy who wasn't always nice to her and called her nicknames? 

My Review:

I received this book courtesy of Netgalley and the Publisher in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. This is the second book that I have read of Donna's and the second book in the The Brides of Blueberry Cove series. Donna did a great job of setting the plot by having a great set of characters that were well developed and written very well. In addition, she did a great job setting the scene so that you really felt that you were in the small town of Blueberry Cove.

If there were aspects of the book that I thought could have been improved it maybe would have been the pace of the book. It took a little longer than I would have liked to get to start seeing their romantic relationship started. At times in the beginning I felt that she was concentrating more on the story of Fiona then Fiona and Ben. One aspect that I enjoyed was the twist that she threw in there about a family member. I think this was a great way to see the emotional aspect of Ben and Fiona's relationship really develop and grow.

All in all I thought this was a good book and I will definitely read more in this series especially Kerry's story from what we learned in this book about her. I would recommend this book to romance and fiction readers.
