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?
What I Thought…
• I have been waiting for Kelsey’s story. I loved her in My Bluegrass Baby and was disappointed that she wasn’t featured in the second book. It was worth the wait though.
• Kelsey has been dating the king of losers for a few years now and after he finally breaks up with her she decides that is enough is enough and she will not take him back. She doesn’t tell anyone this though because she knows that no one likes him and she will probably be told “I told you so.”
• Charlie is all sorts of adorable. He’s got a head for math and struggles in some social situations. We know from the previous books that he has a bit of a thing for Kelsey, but as she is with someone else he will not pursue her.
• Watching Kelsey and Charlie before Charlie knows that Kelsey and Darrell broke up is agonaizing. He gets close, then backs away, then gets close, etc. You can feel that both Kelsey and Charlie are torn over their situation.
• There is another guy thrown into the mix, but it didn’t turn out to be quite the love triangle that I was worried it would be. For which I am very grateful!
• Kelsey, Charlie and the gang get stuck on a mountain resort during a ridiculous snow storm for like 2 weeks? Maybe a bit more, not sure that part was specific. It was a bit over the top, but the ridiculousness is part of the reason why I love Harper’s books so much.
• I also love that we get to see the whole gang together and their relationships with each other. There are also some super sweet moments between Sadie and Josh.
Overall I loved Snow Falling on Bluegrass and it’s the perfect winter romance read!
