Snowflakes and Sparks

Snowflakes and Sparks by Sophie-Leigh Robbins
Series: Old Pine Cove, #1
Kindle Edition, 228 pages
Published October 3rd 2019 by Got It Covered Press

One small town. One hot neighbor. One second chance at love.

The best fake snow decorations in L.A.? Done by me.

About to get a promotion? Also me.

Sent to a sleepy small town right before Christmas to save a bookstore? Unfortunately, me again.

Old Pine Cove was the one place on earth I had sworn I’d never return to. Then my boss asked me to manage one of our bookstores there. I wanted to tell her no way, but that would definitely lower my chances of being promoted once I returned to L.A. So I sucked it up. Besides, it was only supposed to be temporary. What could possibly go wrong?

Gosh, how naïve of me.

Alex Denverton opening the door with that smoldering look of his, that’s what went wrong. It had been ten years since I crashed his truck and made a run for it. And now he was back in my life. How was I supposed to focus on work knowing he was right next door? And why did I ever agree to organize the annual Winter Walk with him?

One thing was certain, though. If I wanted to have a magical Christmas, I couldn’t ask Santa to make it happen. It was up to me to decide: go big or go home.

Snowflakes and Sparks is a standalone, small town romcom in the Old Pine Cove series.

My thoughts about Snowflakes and Sparks ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"Do you think there's such a thing as too much fake snow?"

Snowflakes and Sparks
is an amazing, fun romcom that I devoured and I loved every minute of it. I loved that one of the main settings is a bookstore—there's mention of a favorite author (don't we all have those?), smelling the pages in a book, there's nothing like the smell of a new book, (don't most of us love the smell of books?), the anticipation of a new story (yes!), and the knowledge that you're about to embark on a journey with a new cast of unknown characters (my idea of heaven).

Suzie is sent back to her small hometown to fill a role and she does it begrudgingly, in order to advance in the company, to live her dream, to ultimately get the job she aspires to. But is that really what will make her happy? She has to face her past in Old Pine Grove and and the boy, now a man, who swept her off her feet then but who she fled from years ago.

I loved Snowflakes and Sparks and my visit to Old Pine Grove. I'm excited to see where the author goes with this series and getting to know the other characters even more.

"Because sometimes we hold on to something we should've let go of a long time ago."

I received a copy of Snowflakes and Sparks from the author and this is my honest review.
