Publisher's Summary

Parks and Recreation meets The Blue Collar Comedy Tour in this third book in Molly Harper's Bluegrass series of contemporary romances: A love triangle of colleagues heats up the winter lodge where they get snowed in for a week. 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?

    "Well written and utterly forgettable"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No - I tend to recommend most of her other books to my friends but this, and admittedly the other two in the series, simply do not hit the mark for me. They are an enjoyable read for your public transport wait - but by the end of the story I had already forgotten the beginning.

    "Kentucky, at least we are not Arkansas..."
    Would you listen to Snow Falling on Bluegrass again? Why?

    You can not NOT listen to it again. It is a hoot. It is better than the previous two of bluegrass books and I really liked those.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Snow Falling on Bluegrass?

    I rather like the geek pod, so I would say the part at the end where they take revenge. Sorry, more info would be spoiler danger.


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favourite?

    She is queen of narrators. I preffer English accented narration most of the time, but this is American book by American author and she has lovely accent and just great voice. All Molly Harper books are narrated by her and I think it makes them even better than written form. She is perfect! You forget straight away it is read by one person only!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It is more of a funny book, so I was laughing rather that "aaaaaawwwwing" I did want to strangle Kelsey's ex a lot though. No, no... More of the boxing his ears over and over and over and over... again. No, strangle... no wait...


    Any additional comments?

    You do not need to listen to these books in order, although it is better if you are considering this one. However, this one is really my favourite from the lot.

    "Molly Harper Magic"

    The last in the bluegrass series this story rounds off the going ons in the KTS offices well. Easy listening with lol moments and a nice comfortable pace. The story follows a classic line but thats what keeps me coming back to these books!

    "Sure Kelsey makes poor choices, who doesn't?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you love Molly Harper, you'll love this. People say that they can't believe that Kelsey makes such poor choices.....Well that's how we learn. And what good would the story be if everything went smoothly. I had lots of laugh out loud moments. (almost a given with Molly Harper).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Snow Falling on Bluegrass?

    So many, but I don't want to give away anything. But one is when Kelsey and Charlie over hear Bonnie and Will talking......it really got me.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Amanda Ronconi is a great narrator and I've listened to her do other stories, but she does all of Molly Harper books fantastic.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No crying just laugh out loud moments. Molly Harper writes to entertain, if you want deep thinking and tragic moments with reason and philosophy, read something else. Molly Harper is pure fun.


    Any additional comments?

    I have every audible that's out there from Molly Harper and narrated by Amanda Ronconi....Love them and look forward to more.

    "Molly Harper: Still Good"

    This is a bit of a review for all Molly Harper books. I've listened to maybe 4-5 of Harper's books all narrated by Amanda Ronconi, and I've enjoyed all of them. Harper is great at writing very relatable main characters. All have little minor quirks or flaws and all have at least one or two relatable-amazing specialities (This character is great at organization) And all have always had 1-2 awful relationships before the book starts that give them a better appreciation of the man they get in this book.

    And let's not forget the humor.

    The humor is what get's me coming back every time. The characters are just so likeable, and never take themselves too seriously. They are just fun people that you would love to hang out with, even if you don't personally get to be with the man meat

    This isn't high-end literature, but it is a fun romp each and every time. This book is no different. enjoy!

    First Thought when Finished: Snow Falling on Bluegrass by Molly Harper is my favorite in the series. It had all the fun, snark, love, and friendship that is signature Molly Harper. I enjoy the friendships almost as much as the romance!

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated By Amanda Ronconi / Length: 6 hrs and 7 mins


    As I have said before Amanda/Molly are a great duo. Listen to any of the series and I dare you not to fall in love!

    "Finally Kelsey story!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Snow Falling on Bluegrass to be better than the print version?

    I love to read books too. But Amanda Ronconi is an amazing narrator, and she makes the story and characters come to life. And the witty delivery is always the best, much better than my inner voice, so I will always choose the audio book first.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Snow Falling on Bluegrass?

    I don't want to give way any spoilers.
    But pillow forts, confrontations in doorways and epic popcorn revenge was truly amazing.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    Everything, as always.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Kelsey finally know her own self-worth.


    Any additional comments?

    A well written story, it really does one of my favorite characters justice, one of the best from Molly Harper.

    "Awesome narrator-- Good story"

    I LOVE the narrator, Amanda Ronconi. I also like this author very much though lately I feel like she is just going through the motions. Yes, it was an entertaining and cute book and I enjoyed it. However, it was short and a little formulaic. I just know Molly Harper can do so much better!!! I'll keep buying her books but I hope she gets out of this rut soon.

    "Takes me back"

    I can so relate, having grown up in the very places in the book and having Southern in-laws. Molly Harper is a wonderful author, spinner great, realistic characters full of fire, wit and flaws. Amanda Ronconi is brilliant. I will listen to anything she narrates because she's just that great.

    This book follows the Bluegrass formula, but that's ok. Sometimes we need great, fun characters we know to struggle and have a happy ending.

    "Just plain fun!"

    Remember when a book was just fun? When characters seemed like friends and the end of the story made you happy? That's how Molly Harper's stories leave you. Like the reading you did as a kid. I liked this story in particular. The characters are smart. They use good words and think. The woman are strong and capable even if they're quirky. When, oh when, will we get more?

    "Good addition to the series :)"

    3-3.5 stars

    This was a good story. I liked Kelsey but I found her reasoning (in the relationship area) to be faulty and kind of annoying at times. I liked Charlie and wished I'd have gotten more of him in the story.

    Kelsey works at the Kentucky tourism commision and does a great job at organization and tackling problems. Kelsey's parents are around but she doesn't seem to see them much. I can't blame her since her mother is hard to deal with and makes her feel like a failure constantly. Kelsey has been involved with a guy named Darryl for the last couple years but he's a real jerk and they finally broke up (for good this time) a few weeks ago.

    Charlie is a mathematician that works statistician for the Kentucky tourism commission. Charlie's father is a great mathematician and is a professor at a university. Charlie's family looks down on his interests and thinks he's wasting his time working for the KTC. Charlie's a bit socially awkward and Kelsey tends to help him out at work so he understands and integrates with his co-workers better.

    The whole KCT team is going to a lodge for a team retreat and strategy session...something where they do team building activities and plan the tourism promotions they want to use in the next year. They all meet at work to load into the van and drive to the lodge together so it's uncomfortable for Kelsey when Darryl decides to come and see her off, just in order to give her some bills for credit accounts he opened in her name (without her permission) to buy things he wanted. Kelsey takes them and tells him to go but when she gets in the van, she doesn't bother to tell anyone they've broken up and lets them assume Darryl was there to see her off in a good way.

    This is pretty much what bothered me about Kelsey...she's been in love with Charlie for years but was going out with Darryl this whole time. She thinks Charlie is a good guy and yet she seemed to think he had no interest in her because he didn't make a move on her while she was involved with Darryl. Kelsey then decided to give up on Charlie, positive he's not interested in her when she never actually gave him a chance because a good guy wouldn't go after her while she's involved with someone else. When they all arrive at the lodge, they get snowed in without electricity. The one lodge employee there, Luke, shows an interest in Kelsey but it's not a true love triangle. Considering they're snowed in together, it takes a surprisingly long time for Charlie and Kelsey to recognize the mutual attraction between them...and that's only once Kelsey finally admits that she and Darryl are over. Most of this story is drama because even once they figure this out, there's still other things that come up to cause issues for them. Thankfully, things get worked out and the story ends with Charlie and Kelsey working towards a HEA together.

    This was an enjoyable story. I always like the feel of Harper's storytelling...she has such a fun way of writing. I usually like Harper's heroines better but Kelsey bothered me a bit because the way she handled things with Charlie. It was messed up because she faulted him for not doing one thing and then later in the story, she faulted him doing it (if slightly switched around). I actually liked Charlie but he didn't get as much page time as I would have liked. Overall, the story was enjoyable and I liked it. :)
