Book Review: Snow Falling on Bluegrass

Snow Falling on Bluegrass (Bluegrass, #3)Snow Falling on Bluegrass by Molly Harper
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Publication Date: September 2014

 Kentucky Tourism Commission employee and executive assistant extraordinaire Kelsey is known around the office for having everything under control. So it’s not surprising that she and her boss, Sadie, have everything planned to the second for the office winter retreat. But there are things even Kelsey can’t micromanage.

An unprecedented snowstorm smothers half of Kentucky and knocks out the power, closes the roads, and generally shuts down the state. Luckily, the lodge has working fireplaces and enough food to keep the staff from turning on each other like something out of The Shining. Kelsey wouldn’t mind being stuck inside if it wasn’t for the tension with her not-so-secret crush, Charlie, the office’s statistician. But handsome Ranger Luke, the lodge’s only employee on hand, is there to take Kelsey’s mind off her discomfort.

Even though this weekend is supposed to be a planning session for KTC, Kelsey can’t help her mind from wandering and finds herself conflicted over Luke and Charlie. Someone’s love will keep her warm, but whose will it be?

This is the third book in a series, and I didn't read the first two. But I saw this on Netgalley, and I've liked Molly Harper's books in the past, so I figured I'd give it a try.

I really like Molly Harper's writing. It's easy reading and there's always some humor and fun in the stories. I didn't really get a good feel for any of the characters, though. I feel like maybe I would have "known" them more if I had read the previous two books.

That's not to say that I didn't like the characters. They were fun, and I liked the geeky references some of the characters made. I might go back and read the first two books someday, but I probably won't be in a huge hurry to do so.
